The following list includes the different types of information PFC Coalition collects:

  1. Personally Identifiable Information

  2. “Personally Identifiable Information” (“PII”) is information that would allow someone to identify or contact a User, such as a User’s name, organization, address, and email address. PII does not include aggregated information or information about Users that, by itself, does not permit the identification of a specific individual. For example, statistics about how many persons visited PFC Coalition’s website is not PII.

  3. PFC Coalition does not require Users to register or provide PII to view the PFC Coalition homepage or many other areas of the PFC Coalition website. There are occasions when PFC Coalition requests PII in order to provide Users with specific services. For example, PII is collected to enable Users to sign up for newsletters or other information services. Member-restricted portions of the PFC Coalition website may require additional PII, which will be used by PFC Coalition in accordance with the terms of membership and this Privacy Policy.

  4. Nonpersonally Identifiable Information
