Palos Verdes on the Net, Inc. (PVNET) is committed to protecting your privacy. To help our customers and visitors understand this commitment, PVNET has developed a detailed privacy policy. Both personally identifiable and non personally identifiable information that may be collected is described below.

Personally Identifiable Information


Personally identifiable information is obtained through direct E-Mail contact initiated by the customer or web site visitor. The E-Mail address of the sender is exposed to the recipient to whom the E-Mail is addressed. The senders E-Mail address is not shared outside PVNET except as noted under the Limited Disclosure Information section.

It is understood that E-Mail is, by it's nature, not a secure means of communications, and as such may be intercepted by unknown 3rd parties.

Services and Information Requested

PVNET provides online forms for various services and information. These forms may require personally identifiable information for that service or information to be delivered to the customer. For example, computer classes offered by PVNET require registration of participants. That registration may request personally identifiable information such as name, mailing address, phone number, E-Mail address, birth date, references, etc. The information is used to verify class attendees, for billing purposes, to contact participants for class location or timing changes and notify them of upcoming classes. This information is kept within PVNET for business purposes and not sold or disclosed to third parties.

Other services may require disclosure of information to third parties. For example, domain name registration and web hosting services require that the domain owner disclose personal information such as name, mailing address, phone number, E-Mail address, etc. In this case, the information must be transmitted to ICANN (master domain name registration organization) for completion of the requested service.

PVNET services may be paid for through banking institutions, including but not limited to, Visa, Master Card, Pay Pal, etc. Credit card payment is provided through secure link directly to the institution. Therefore, credit card information is not retained by PVNET. However, the financial institution to which you are linked may collect personally identifiable information. Each institution has it's own privacy policies, and it is recommended that the customer review these and be familiar with the specific institution's policies before submitting payment information to them.

PVNET may disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances. These include:
