This policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our services. This statement will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and our members' needs.
What Information do we collect? When you visit our web site, and sign up for an activity, you enter your member number. That number is validated against the latest information from PMI Headquarters. The event cost is calculated based on your membership status according the latest release of membership information from PMI Global.
When you sign up for an activity, we ask you to provide information including your name, postal address, e-mail address. We do not use or release any information for any purpose except to verify your transaction. For members, this information is provided from PMI Headquarters based on your submission when you joined or renewed your membership. For non members, this information is entered at time of event registration.
Credit Card Transactions: PSiGate processes credit card transactions. This professional secure payment authorization service was chosen for security and reliability. Our web site collects name and address information and PMI ID. This user information and the price of the event are passed to PSiGate, which collects the credit card number, verifies it and processes the transaction. Information collected during transactions is maintained in their database for accounting and billing purposes. Our web site maintains a list of the people who have tried to process transactions and those that have succeeded for each event. This provides a registration list for each event. Information from these transactions is not released to third parties. Credit card information is not available to anyone outside of PSiGate.
Privacy of Personal Information: At PMI-CTT the protection of your personal information is a top priority.
