PSP also collects data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. PSP may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that PSP collect and how PSP may use it:
PSP's websites, online services, interactive applications, email messages, and advertisements may use "cookies" and other technologies. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our websites people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and searches. PSP treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, PSP also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, PSP treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Site. If you want to disable cookies, you may disable or block such cookies through your device or browser.
As is true of most internet services, PSP gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. PSP use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services.
PSP takes the security of your personal information very seriously. PSP does not take any decisions involving the use of algorithms or profiling that significantly affects you. PSP will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined for this Site and/or required by law or other Agreement.
Please ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date when signing into the Site. For the personal information PSP hold, PSP will provide you with access to correct the data if it is inaccurate. PSP may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. PSP may also decline aspects of deletion or access requests if PSP believe doing so would undermine our legitimate use of data for anti-fraud and security purposes.
PSP understands the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children subject to Apply Philly Charter services.
