Our Third Party Relationships
We have relationships with third party vendors to best serve our customers. These are as follows:
- Affiliates: An affiliate program is an automated marketing program where a Web advertiser or merchant recruits webmasters to place the merchant's banner ads or buttons on their own Web site. Webmasters will receive a referral fee or commission from sales when the customer has clicked the affiliate link to get to the merchant's Web site to perform the desired action, usually make a purchase or fill out a contact form. The most common types of affiliate programs include pay-per-click, pay-per-lead, and pay-per-sale. Affiliates cannot access our customers' personal data. If you choose to apply to any of our affiliate programs, we use the data you give us strictly for conducting business with you.
- Credit Card Processing: We use Authorize.net to process credit card orders. We supply them with data for credit card authorization and fraud detection only and they are restricted from using the data for any other purposes.
- Marketing and Promotions: At times we may utilize third party vendors to assist with marketing and promotional offers (i.e. e-mails) to those customers who have agreed to receive such offers. These third parties will only have access to information to the extent necessary and will be required to not use any personal information for any other purpose.
- Additional Third Party Relationships: At times PPI may enlist third party vendors for other services. These providers will not have access to our customer’s personal data.
We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to protect your personal information. The only time you are required to sign on the Web Site is when you are making a purchase.
