Collection of your Personal Information
PIQ Living collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, and profession.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. From your IP address, we can estimate your local town’s city center which is used only as a proximation and may be as much as 50 miles off in accuracy. This information is used for the operation of this service, to maintain the quality of the service by locating our web and application servers in regions nearest our customers for improved speed, costs, and efficiency, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the piqliving.com website used for later promotions, service strategies, and local event planning.
You may request your estimated city/location to be removed at any time by contacting us at email@example.com. IP addresses and general locations are also used to ensure safety of our members and to report abusers and violations to proper authorities when necessary. A safe user experience for everyone is our highest priority.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through our public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: we do not read your private online communications unless directed to us.
We encourage you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from PIQ Living so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. PIQ Living is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the PIQ Living and piqliving.com family of websites.

In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, country, and profession) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, we may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email, provide customer support.

The piqliving.com website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize PIQ Living pages, or register with PIQ Living site or services, a cookie helps PIQ Living to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information. When you return to the same piqliving.com website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the PIQ Living features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the PIQ Living services or websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
PIQ Living secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We secure the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other services and/or websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

We will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. We encourage you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how we are protecting your information.
