Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, which serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" (IP address). When a visitor requests a page from any website within The Pittsburgh Social Exchange website, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of our network or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our web servers do not record email addresses of visitors.
When you are on The Pittsburgh Social Exchange website and are asked for information, you are sharing that information with The Pittsburgh Social Exchange alone. The Pittsburgh Social Exchange will not disclose any of your identifiable information except when we are required to do so by law. The Pittsburgh Social Exchange also does not share email addresses or information you provide to us with others.
We may also request your email address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, announcements or special events). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy that means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise give your email address to a third party. When you sign up for an event or newsletter, your name or alias is recorded solely for purposes of maintaining our database of users.
