PDX ABC ("PDX ABC") operates pdxabc.com and may operate other websites. It is PDX ABC's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, PDX ABC collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. PDX ABC's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how PDX ABC's visitors use its website. From time to time, PDX ABC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
PDX ABC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on pdxabc.com blogs/sites. PDX ABC only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to PDX ABC's websites choose to interact with PDX ABC in ways that require PDX ABC to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PDX ABC gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at pdxabc.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with PDX ABC are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, PDX ABC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with PDX ABC. PDX ABC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
PDX ABC may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. PDX ABC may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, PDX ABC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using PDX ABC's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. PDX ABC will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, PDX ABC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when PDX ABC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PDX ABC, third parties or the public at large.
