It is extremely important that you understand that any information that identifies you will never be shared with anyone without your consent. Our privacy statement as set forth below is written so that you can understand exactly what we do and don’t do with your information.

Please read this policy carefully and review it periodically to keep informed of any changes.

Who is collecting information?

Only PTI is collecting information while you are on our Web sites or using our services. Our Web sites may also provide links to third parties and their Web sites. We are not responsible for third party Web sites and how that Web site may handle the collection or distribution of information gathered at those sites. We recommend that you review the privacy policy of any Web site you decide to visit. We do not control, are not responsible for, nor are we recommending the usage of any other Web site. The links provided on our Web sites are there because a person or entity has paid or contracted for the right to have a link.

With whom is your information shared?

We will never share any Personal Financial Information, except in the very limited circumstances when we have your consent or when we are required to disclose pursuant to a court order or if requested by a law enforcement agency or other legal requirement. As stated above, we will share Contact Information with those of our Partners with whom you have an account or whose services you have consented to use. Further, we share information collected from cookies with our partners to track sales and site visits and to develop information about web usage. In the course of sharing this information, we do not share any personally identifiable information. A more specific explanation of our use of cookies is found below.

Does PTI monitor e-mails or other communications?

We do not monitor in advance user’s communications, e-mails or other content distributed through the Internet. By using our service you acknowledge that PTI is unlikely to be aware of violations of law or other misconduct occurring over the Internet. As a user of our service, you bear full responsibility for the material received and sent via e-mail. We may have the capability to review these communications while in use and be required to disclose personal or other information when required by law, court order, governmental agency or law enforcement authority.

How may you update information?

You may only change your e-mail address by e-mailing us from the new location and verifying the change.

Does PTI use any filtering software?


Does PTI allow users under the age of 18?

No. We believe that it is especially important to protect minor’s privacy on line and encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children to participate and monitor their Internet activity. If you are under 18, we recommend that you get your parent’s permission before disclosing any information about yourself. PTI will not knowingly allow anyone under the age of 18 without the written permission from a parent or guardian. The parent of a child under 18 can review and have deleted their child’s account.


Upon visiting a PTI website or site of one of our Partners, a cookie is sent to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. A “cookie” is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service, to better understand how people interact wit us and our Partners. We do this by storing user preferences in cookies and by tracking user trends and activity of how people search and purchase on-line. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse cookies or notify you when a cookie is being set. If you reject a cookie from us, you may still use our site with the understanding that we cannot guarantee that all features or services will function properly.

Referral program

We may offer a referral program in the future. If a user or subscriber elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send the friend an email inviting them to visit the site. We store this information for the purpose of communicating our products and services. The referred individual may contact us at (e-mail address) or (telephone number) to request the removal of this information from our database. Presently, we only use cookies for administration of the site, such as remembering logins. None of our business partners use cookies on our site.

Newsletters and Subscriber communications e-mails

We may from time to time send e-mails to our Subscribers regarding our services. Also, we plan to develop a periodic electronic newsletter that we will send to all of our interested Subscribers. Out of respect for the privacy of our Subscribers, the receipt of such communications is handled on an op-in basis. Subscribers are given the opportunity to ‘opt-in’ to receiving these types of communications on our Web sites.


Our Web sites take every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the Website, the information is protected both online and off-line. Because PTI uses some of the most sophisticated commercially available security software, it is extremely unlikely that any personal information that you transmit to us will be misappropriated. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the some of the best encryption software in the industry – DigiCert SHA-256 with RSA Encryption. While we use this encryption software to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees and consultants who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Additionally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, along with other proprietary information at our data center. Only authorized personnel are physically allowed into the data center or access to the internal proprietary information. Subscribers should not share their password or access code with others or place that information where other may gain access. You are responsible for making sure that this information is kept confidential.
PLEASE NOTE: Internet data transmission is not always 100% secure and we cannot warrant that information you transmit utilizing PTI’s services is always 100% secure. Because security is important to PTI and our users, PTI pledges to take all reasonable measures to ensure the security of our services and system.

Notification of changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Web page at positiontech.com and at this location so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by posting those changes at this site.
