Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy
The PLAZA respects your right to privacy. We adhere to a set of privacy principles which form the basis of our privacy policy.

•     Anonymous statistics collected as you browse the PLAZA’s sites, and
•     Personal information you knowingly provide to the PLAZA

We want you to be aware of what information we collect, and how we handle this information.

What information does the Web site gather?
Please be assured that we do not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. This means that you can visit our Web sites without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself (such as your e-mail address, or any information about yourself).

As you browse the site, our web servers collect information about your visit, not about you personally. Via web server logs, we monitor statistics such as:

•     How many people visit our site
•     Which pages people visit on our site
•     From which domains our visitors come (e.g., Comcast.net, Verizon.net, etc.)
•     Which browsers people use to visit our site

None of this information is associated with you as an individual. We use these statistics to monitor its performance, and to make the Web site easier for you
and other visitors to use.

•     What about pages that asks for personal information?
•     When visitors supply information about themselves for a specific purpose, we use the information for that purpose (such as to provide the service or information the visitor has requested).

For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information. The information may range from your email address, condo number, zip code, phone number, account number, a credit card number, e-mail address or mailing address.

When visitors use our Web site to order services, we may use this individually identifiable information as we would use the same information obtained in a traditional non-electronic manner.

Should any changes be made in the way we use personally identifiable information, the PLAZA will publish any such changes on its websites.

Do you sell or give my information to companies, other third parties, individuals or governmental entities?
The PLAZA does not sell or disclose individually-identifiable information obtained online, or information about you or your account, to anyone, unless you specifically authorize it, disclosure is required by law, or deemed necessary by the PLAZA in its sole discretion to protect the safety, rights or property of the PLAZA or any other person or entity.

The PLAZA may share non-personally identifiable information with non-PLAZA companies in order to assess the results of an event. This information is used in aggregate only, and does not contain any information that would personally identify you.

Does this site send e-mail to site visitors?
At times, online surveys are conducted in which you can choose to participate. In addition, we may use e-mail to communicate with our visitors, to respond to visitors' e-mail, and to send information that a visitor has requested. Occasionally, we may use opt-in e-mail lists. 

What are cookies and why do you use them?
A cookie is a small, encrypted data string our server writes to your hard drive that contains your unique User ID for our Web site. We use cookies to deliver web content specific to your interests, and to control access to our content. A cookie cannot be used to access or otherwise compromise the data on your hard drive. You can choose to change your browser settings to disable cookies. Please be aware that cookies may be required to complete certain functions on this Web site.

Do you accommodate links to other sites?
This Web site contains links to other Web sites. We are not responsible for the content or the privacy practices employed by other sites. We are committed to safeguarding visitor privacy on all our Web sites within our control. We require our employees to protect the privacy of information about our visitors.

What is the PLAZA’s position regarding online advertising and third party ad servers?
As part of the online advertising process, we use information supplied from third party companies in several ways however, this is aggregated data and does not personally identify any individual online user.

This data is used to:
•     gain a better understanding of the type of individuals viewing or visiting different web sites,
•     evaluate and prioritize site selection when developing online media plans,
•     geographically target advertising,
•     deliver product and pricing advertising/information applicable to the visitors' state, and gauge the effectiveness of our online advertising.

Personally identifiable information such as name, address, phone number or email address is not collected.

In addition, some PLAZA websites and/or sections may accept advertisements from third party advertisers. These advertisers are carefully selected to provide information about products and services that may benefit PLAZA visitors. These third party advertisers may collect non-personally identifiable information about users of this website for the same reasons listed above, but personally identifiable information is not collected. The PLAZA does not have control of nor access to any information contained in the cookies that are set by third party advertisers.

Non Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically

Visitors are free to delete website cookies. Most internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.

However, you need to understand that some ad serving companies have the ability to reestablish your history even after cookie deletion, if you reenter the same site on another occasion, or some other site tracked by the ad serving company/network, and specifically provide personal data.

Deletion of cookies alone does not prevent ad serving companies from reestablishing history on a visitor. The visitor must either continue to decline cookies each time it reenters the site to keep the tracking severed, if desired, or opt-out.

When you opt-out, your unique user ID cookie is erased and you are reassigned an anonymous, non-id cookie. This new cookie tells websites that you have opted out and they will then know not to attempt to assign other cookies to you in the future. Opt-out cookies do not contain a unique user ID number therefore websites are not able to identify your computer uniquely.

Visitors who choose to continually delete cookies and not opt out can have their browser advise them each time a web site attempts to send a cookie to your system. At that time, you can choose to either Accept or Cancel a cookie.

Visitors who choose to "opt out" after deleting cookies will receive an anonymous/non personally identifiable cookie.

Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information voluntarily supplied by our visitors, i.) who receive or provide information on our website, or ii). who interact with our banners/advertising on outside websites, is not shared for use outside the PLAZA or its authorized vendors, contractors and agents. This information is PLAZA proprietary data and is not available to any outside company in this personalized form, except with a visitor's permission or where disclosure is otherwise required or permitted by law. No outside company is allowed access to this information.

Should any changes be made in the way we use personally identifiable information, the PLAZA will publish this change on the site.

Does the PLAZA use the information provided online to profile its visitors?
The combination of offline and online information provided by the visitor has the ability to enhance the visitor experience, and make the visitor’s interaction with the PLAZA more meaningful and relevant.  

Please note
We may disclose personal information when required by law or when necessary to protect the safety of our visitors, employees or property.
