PRI's commitment to your privacy and security
This web site is owned and operated by the Population Research Institute (PRI). We are committed to protecting your privacy and security through the proper use of the personal information you entrust to us. We use this information to assure that you are served promptly, appropriately and satisfactorily.
What information does PRI collect about me?
Information you volunteer
Our web sites allow you to join in our work for free. Through our web sites, you can receive free, regular updates on matters important to you, and sign petitions which let key decision-makers know where you stand. To participate in our work, you provide necessary personal information, such as your email address, your name, and your zip code. The most important information we collect is this personal information which you volunteer, when you enter it onto one of our pages.
Like other web sites, we also collect technical information in the background while you browse. Our server records your IP address, and which pages you visit. Any site you visit on the Internet will do this. Communication on the Internet is impossible without trading this information.
If you are concerned about your online privacy, consider using a proxy server. This is like getting a P.O. Box. Only the proxy knows "where you live," and the rest of the Internet uses the proxy IP address.
You can disable cookies in your browser. If you do, most of the site will continue to work, but you may lose some functionality, especially with the shopping cart. An intermediate solution is to set your browser to erase all cookies every time you close the browser.
Sensitive financial information
The work of PRI depends entirely on the generosity of donors like yourself. For your convenience, we offer secure online credit card processing for donations, as well as orders at our online store. We take this data very seriously—in fact, we do not collect any sensitive financial data on our web site. Before you enter your financial data, you are taken to a secure, industry-standard, third-party site.
We do not store sensitive financial information in cookies, or in our web databases or server logs. All financial transactions take place through secure, third-party sites.
How does PRI use this information I provide?
When you provide your personal information, you give us a mission. We fulfill this mission. For instance, if you sign our petition, we will deliver your petition. If you request updates, we will send you updates.
When you work with us in this way, we may also send you further information to keep you posted on our work. You can unsubscribe from any of our mailing lists at any time.
How do I unsubscribe from a PRI mailing list?
Every email we send to you through a mailing list will include unsubscription instructions at the bottom of the email. The process is simple and quick.
