Cookies: A "cookie" is a small piece of information that our website may provide to your browser while you are on our sites. The PLG website supplies your browser with cookies that contain a unique identifier used to understand your website usage in the aggregate and on an individual level, so we know what areas of our site users prefer. We accomplish this with tracking utilities that allow us to reconstruct activity from a session or a user for troubleshooting purposes. PLG may also employ service providers to help us collect and understand our website usage data.

Social Media And Third-Party Website Security And Privacy Policies: PLG currently has a presence on social media to connect with and market to the public, PLG customers, and potential customers of the PLG family. Each third-party site has its own security and privacy policies, which govern your activities on their site. Users of third-party websites often share information with the general public, user community, and or the third-party website operators, which may use this information in various ways. Consequently, you should review the third-party website's privacy policies before using them and ensure that you understand how they use your data. Most of the third-party websites allow you to adjust privacy settings on your accounts to match your preferences. The information posted on or directed at PLG through social media is generally available to the public.

Automatically Collected Information

PLG may automatically collect information about your computer hardware and software. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, maintaining the quality of the service, and providing general statistics regarding the use of the PLG website.

Use Of Cookies

The PLG website may use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize PLG pages or register with a PLG site or services, a cookie helps PLG recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same PLG website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved to use the PLG features that you customized easily.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not fully experience the interactive features of the PLG services or websites you visit.
