Sharing your personal information

In some instances, PitchRate.com may collect non-personal (aggregate or demographic) data through cookies, web logs, and web beacons. This information is used to better understand and improve the usability, performance, and effectiveness of the PitchRate.com.com website.

 

We may share your personal information for purposes of data processing or storage.

 

We may also share your personal information with authorized third-party agents or contractors in order to provide a requested service or transaction. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We only provide third-party agents with the minimum amount of personal information necessary to complete the requested service or transaction.

While navigating PitchRate.com's web site you may be directed to content or functionality that is hosted by a third party supplier, not hosted on PitchRate.com.  When information is collected on behalf of PitchRate.com exclusively, PitchRate.com's privacy policy will be referenced on the site and will govern how your information is used. For other, non-PitchRate.com sites, the site owner's privacy policy will be referenced. It is PitchRate.com's practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with PitchRate.com's privacy and security policies.

 

We will ask you for your opt-in consent to share your personal information with a third party for any other reason.
