This privacy policy ("Policy") applies to this Web site and the services provided at the Web site that are operated by Pathway Intelligence, Inc.(the "Site") and sponsored by The Jack Bell Foundation (the "Site Sponsor") . The Policy is designed to tell You how we collect and use personal information (as defined below) so You can make an informed decision about using our Site. Please read this statement before using our Site or submitting any personal information to us. By using our Site, You represent that You are 18 years old or older and You consent to the information collection and use practices described herein. We reserve the right to change the provisions of this privacy policy at any time by posting a revised privacy policy on the Site and indicating on the privacy policy the date it was last updated. Your use of the Site following the posting of such changes or revised statement shall constitute Your acceptance of any such changes. We encourage You to review our privacy policy whenever You visit our Site to determine if any changes have been made and to make sure that You understand how any personal information You provide will be used.

WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION

As used herein, the term "personal information" means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as user's name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card or other account number) or that is associated with an identifiable person (such as demographic information or information about a person's activities when such information is linked to personally identifying information). Personal information also does not include "aggregated" information, which is data we collect about the use of the Site or categories of Site users, from which any personal information has been removed. For example, information that forty-seven percent of the Site's registered users identify themselves as male, is aggregate information. We collect aggregate data for a number of purposes, including to help us understand trends and user needs so that we can better consider new publications, products and services, and tailor existing publications, products and services to user desires. This policy in no way limits or restricts our collection of aggregate information.

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

Personal information may be collected in a number of ways when You visit our Site or use the Service. At several places on our Site, we may collect certain information You voluntarily provide to us which may contain personal information. For example, if You register for the Site, we may collect Your name, home address, work address, home and work phone numbers, email address, travel times and routes, supervisor name and contact information and other personal, professional, demographic and business information that You provide. In addition, from time to time we may collect demographic, contact or other personal or demographic information You provide in connection with Your participation in surveys, promotional offers, forums and other interactive areas of the Site.

We use this information for purposes such as analyzing trends, administering the Site, improving customer service, diagnosing problems with our servers, tracking user movement within the website, and gathering broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may also automatically collect certain information through the use of "cookies." Cookies are small data files that are stored on a user's hard drive at the request of a Web site to enable the site to recognize users who have previously visited them and retain certain information such as customer preferences and history. If we combine cookies with or link them to any of the personally identifying information, we would treat this information as personal information. If You wish to block, erase, or be warned of cookies, please refer to Your browser instructions or help screen to learn about these functions. However, if Your browser is set not to accept cookies or if a user rejects a cookie, You will not be able to sign in to Your Site account and will not be able to access certain Site features or services.

We may also use third parties to serve ads on the Site, provide certain functionalities (such as maps), or to collect, track and analyze non-personally identifiable usage and volume statistical information from users, such as the user's browser type, operating system, browsing behavior and demographic information. These third parties may collect personal information from You in connection with the services they provide and may place cookies, web beacons or other devices on Your computer to collect non-personal information which may be used, among other things, to deliver advertising targeted to Your interests and to better understand the usage and visitation of our Site and the other sites tracked by these third parties. We are not responsible for, and do not control, any actions or policies of any third party service providers.
