Who We Are:
Patterson Communications, Inc.
Generally, any information requested by Patterson Communications, Inc. will be used to provide a website feature or service to you, such as commenting, support, or providing future content better tailored to your interests. Some of the services on this website allow you to send us an email. We will use the information you provide, such as email address or phone number, only to respond to your inquiry. Keep in mind that email transmissions are not encrypted by default, so we suggest you do not send sensitive information beyond what is necessary for the inquiry.
Our website uses commenting and social media plug-ins and third-party web services. We use those third-party services to interact with visitors and to build our community on social media. We also use these third-party services to measure the number of visitors to our website, to interact with visitors on the site, and to make our website more useful to visitors. Some services that we use include Google Adwords, Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel for advertising, analytics and site traffic management.
In such cases, the third-party application may request an email address, username, password, internet protocol (IP) address, and geographic location for account registration or sign-in purposes. We do not use those third-party websites or services to collect personal information from individuals. Any personal information collected by the third-party website will not be stored or transmitted by our site. We have no control over or access to specific login information or any other sensitive personal information provided to third-party websites.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
