HOW DOES PCH Mines PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
PCH Mines uses reasonable security measures to protect the Personal Information that we collect via the website, including making your Personal Information available to our employees and agents on a need-to-know basis. However, while we take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee and do not warrant or represent, that all information will be protected against loss, misuse, or unauthorized access by third parties. By your use of this website, you acknowledge that no Internet data transmission can be guaranteed as secure from such incidents and agree that you will not hold us responsible for any breach of security that is not solely caused by our negligence.
If you contact us by email or a "contact us" or similar feature on our website, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view information you send by these methods in transit.
If you create an account on our website with a username and password, note that passwords are encrypted and our policies do not permit any employee or service provider to access your password. If you do create a username and password, you are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your account password, and you shall be responsible for any access to or use of the website by you or any person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by or on behalf of you, and whether or not such person or entity is your employee or agent. You agree to (a) immediately notify PCH Mines of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session, especially where you are accessing the website on a public computer. It is your sole responsibility to control the dissemination and use of your password, control access to and use of your account, and notify PCH Mines if/when you desire to cancel your account on this website. We will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision.
Additionally, with identity theft a continuing problem, it has become increasingly common for unauthorized individuals to send email messages to consumers, purporting to represent a legitimate company such as a bank or online merchant, requesting that the consumer provide personal, often sensitive information. Sometimes, the domain name of the email address from which the email appears to have been sent, and the domain name of the web site requesting such information, appears to be the domain name of a legitimate, trusted company. In reality, such sensitive information is received by an unauthorized individual to be used for purposes of identity theft. This illegal activity has come to be known as "phishing."
PCH Mines will never request your password or social security number via email. If you receive an email or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your website password or credit card information) via email or to a website that does not seem to be affiliated with our website, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not provide such information, and report such request to us.
We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties.
In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your Personal Information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we will endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your email address, we may notify you by email. You consent to our use of email as a means of such notification.
