Web site Usage/Information Collection

The PPWU Web site does not collect or store personally identifiable information unless you agree to provide it. We may collect aggregate information to measure visitor activity to improve the site's usefulness. For example, we may track which pages are most popular among visitors as a whole, then provide a "short cut" to such content on the homepage. We do not track the pages that you or any individual visitor may look at during a visit to our site, and we do not collect any other information without your knowledge and permission. The PPWU does not share, store or use personally identifiable information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and the PPWU Web site’s Disclaimer.

Any changes to our privacy policy will be posted on this page so that you can always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we may disclose it. Changes to this Privacy Policy will never be made retroactively.


The APWU Web site uses cookies for gathering web usage statistics, including the number of monthly visitors, number of repeat visitors, most popular web pages, and other information. A cookie is a small file that our server places on your computer to help the server recognize you as a returning visitor. If you log into the members-only area, the Web site will also use a cookie to facilitate your online visit by "remembering" that you have already logged in. The PPWU does not use cookies to track the specific pages an individual visitor views.
