In fact, we share your concerns and will not solicit personal information from you as you tour our site, though you may provide that information voluntarily. If you do elect to provide personal information to us, in no case will we sell, license or transmit that information outside of PWeR for any reason, unless you authorize us to do so. There are instances in which PWeR might internally use the personal information you voluntarily submit. These instances include identifying and registering you for the Self-Service Center portion of our Web site. In addition, we may disclose your personal information (as described below) to our agents, third party partners, affiliates and subsidiaries to enable them to perform certain functions for us. We may also use your secret prompt, secret response and birth date to later identify you in case you forget or misplace your password. By learning a little about you, PWeR can deliver more relevant content and product offerings, hence provide you better service. Personally Identifiable Information is described as data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, telephone number, social security number and date of birth (DOB). At times, we may request personal information from you through our Sites to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service. Members, physicians, employers, business partners, and agents have the ability to register in a secured area of our Web site for us to deliver such products or services. Additional information collected by these sites may include organization names, addresses, group numbers and tax identification numbers. The purpose of the registration is to validate members, providers, employers, business partners and agents requesting access to our secured area. The registration also enables us to tailor the information sent to you. Contact forms are used only to deliver requested materials and respond to your questions.
