When you visit the SDPAC website, our servers automatically collect information about the IP address from which you access the site (an IP address is the number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web), the pages you visit, the date and time you access our site, any forms that were downloaded, and the type of browser and operating system that you are using. We use this information to better understand how our site is used and to enhance the site for visitors. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. None of the foregoing information is deemed to constitute personal information.

Email Content

You may choose to provide us with personal information in an email message to one of the addresses listed throughout our site. We use this information only to respond to your message. Your e-mail address and the contents of your e-mail will be collected. The information collected is not limited to text characters and may include audio, video, and graphic information formats you send us. Your e-mail address and the information contained in your email will be used to respond to you, to address issues you identify, to further improve this Web site, or to forward your e-mail to another agency for appropriate action. Your e-mail address is not collected for commercial marketing purposes and SDPAC does not sell or distribute your e-mail address for any purposes.

Any information you choose to provide may be used for marketing and promotional purposes. SDPAC wishes to assure subscribers to our newsletter that email addresses are never shared, rented or sold to third parties. However, we may use cookies to track the pages on our site visited by subscribers to our email list.

Other Online Transactions

During your visit to this Web site you may initiate a transaction such as a survey, registration or order form. The information, including personal information, volunteered by you in initiating the transaction is used by SDPAC to operate SDPAC programs, which include the provision of goods, services and information. The information collected by SDPAC may be disclosed by SDPAC for those purposes that may be reasonably ascertained from the nature and terms of the transaction in connection with which the information was submitted by you.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We do not sell any personal information to any third parties. Except for the very limited purposes discussed in this paragraph, we also will not share any of your personal information with third parties.

We may sometimes use other businesses to perform certain services for us, such as processing credit card payments, delivering our merchandise, sending postal mail and providing marketing assistance and data analysis. We may provide personal information to those businesses when that information is necessary for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise perform their duties. Those businesses will not be permitted to use your information for any purposes other than to perform their services for SDPAC.

We do reserve the right to disclose visitor information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by those activities. This includes our right to exchange information with other organizations in order to protect against fraud and to reduce credit risk. We also reserve the right to disclose visitor information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. Customer information is generally one of the business assets involved in the sale of a business. In the event that SDPAC or all of its assets were acquired, customer information would be one of the transferred assets.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Whenever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. SDPAC's secure server software uses redundant, enterprise-level hardware firewalls and industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. SSL encodes your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, as it travels over the Internet so that all transactions are secure. If you prefer, you may get information about all SDPAC services or pay by phone at 425.241.3388.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are password-protected and kept in a secure environment.
