Privacy Policy

PCC understands how important the privacy of personal information is to our users. This Privacy Policy will tell you what information we collect about you and about your use of PCC and its services. It will explain the choices you have about how your personal information is used and how we protect that information. We urge you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

This Privacy Policy applies to websites owned and operated by PCC that are intended for use by consumers (non-professionals) for non-commercial personal, family or household purposes, including pointclickcares.com and including the mobile optimized versions of these sites (we refer to these sites collectively as the “PCC”, “PCC Sites”, “us” and “our”). We refer to the PCC Sites, along with the information and services made available to you through the PCC Sites, as the “Services.”

If you do not want us to collect, use or disclose information about you and your use of the Services as described in this Privacy Policy, then you should not use the Services. By using the Services, you must agree to the PCC Terms of Use, which is the contract between us and users of the Services. By accepting the PCC Terms of Use, you confirm that you have read and understand this Privacy Policy and you acknowledge that we will store, use and otherwise process your information in the United States where we are located.

PCC may share information among its subsidiaries or websites that it owns or controls, but information collected under this Privacy Policy is always protected under the terms of this Privacy Policy. Except as otherwise noted in this Privacy Policy, PCC is the data controller responsible for the processing of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected About You

Some of our Services (such as certain quizzes or calculators) do not retain your personal information, while others store your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Even if you do not register with or provide any personal information to PCC, we collect information about your use of the PCC Sites and the Services. We may also acquire information about our users from external sources.

When you use the Services, we collect information as follows:

How Information Collected About You Is Used

Information about your use of the Services may be used for the following purposes:

In addition, PCC may use personal information about you for other purposes that are disclosed to you at the time we collect the information and/or with your consent.

PCC may combine your personal information and other information collected about your use of the Services, and also supplement with information from external sources for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. For example, information that PCC collects about you may be combined by PCC with other information available to PCC through third parties for research and measurement purposes, including measuring the effectiveness of content, advertising or programs. This information from other sources may include age, gender, demographic, geographic, personal interests, product purchase activity or other information. We may report aggregate information, which is not able to be identified back to an individual user of the PCC Sites, to our current or prospective advertisers and other business partners.

PCC will not sell your personal information to third parties for their use without your consent.

Sharing Your Information

How Your Information is Secured and Retained

We take reasonable security measures to protect the security of your personal information. Despite PCC's efforts to protect your personal information, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the Internet may be intercepted.

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter personal information (including personal health information in various Services), we encrypt the transmission of that information or use SSL connections (Secure Socket Layer) technology.

We will retain your personal information as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you Services. At any time you can remove your personal information or instruct us to remove it, but you should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to PCC from our servers. See “Your Choices and Rights” below for more information on how you can update or remove your personal information. We will also retain your personal information as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The PCC Sites are not designed or intended to attract children under the age of 13. The PCC Sites do not collect personal information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13. The parent or guardian is solely responsible for providing supervision of the minor's use of PCC Sites. The parent or guardian assumes full responsibility for ensuring that the personal information is kept secure and that the information submitted is accurate. The parent or guardian also assumes full responsibility for the interpretation and use of any information or suggestions provided through PCC Sites for the minor.

Note to Users Outside of the United States

PCC’s Web Server is located in the United States. The personal information that you provide to us is stored on servers located in the United States. If you are located in another jurisdiction, you should be aware that in order to provide the Services to you, we must transfer your personal information to the United States where it will be stored and processed in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We may transfer your information outside the United States to service providers with operations in other countries. By using the Services, you consent to such collection, storage and processing in the United States and elsewhere, though the United States and other jurisdictions may not afford the same level of data protection as considered adequate in your own country. We will take reasonable steps to protect your personal information. Note that your personal information may be available to the United States government or its agencies under legal process made in the United States.

Additional Information for PCC’s Visitors from the European Economic Area (“EEA”)

If you are a PCC user in the EEA, you can: (i) access personal information we have about you (we will try to provide information within 30 days of your request); (ii) have your personal information corrected or deleted (in most cases you can correct personal information you have submitted to us by going back to the specific Service, logging-in and making the desired change); (iii) in certain circumstances, you can object to our processing of your personal information and we will discontinue such processing unless we have compelling legitimate grounds to continue; (iv) withdraw consent previously provided (however a withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of processing of your personal data that occurred prior to the date of withdrawal); or (v) if you believe that we have not complied with applicable data protection laws, you may lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority. If you wish to inquire as to whether we maintain any of your personal information and if so, whether you wish to exercise any of those rights that are available to you with respect to such personal information, you may contact us as described in the Contacting PCC About Your Personal Information. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.

We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to provide the Services to you and fulfill the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. This is also the case for third parties within whom we share your information to perform services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your personal information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we will either remove it from our systems or anonymize it.
