Privacy statement

PeopleGroups.info takes your privacy seriously. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want to help you understand the terms and conditions surrounding the collection and use of that information. This privacy policy discloses the types of information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it.

1. What personally identifiable information does PeopleGroups.info collect?

PeopleGroups.info’s primary goal in collecting personal information is to advance PeopleGroups.info's mission and to maximize your online experience when using our site.

PeopleGroups.info collects personally identifiable information when you provide it to us by logging in to the site as a member. Once you log in to the site, you are no longer anonymous to us. 

The type of personally identifiable information that PeopleGroups.info collects includes your first and last name, physical address, phone number, email address, job and church/organization information.  We also collect information regarding the types of people groups you are interested in, such as their affinity and religious blocs.

PeopleGroups.info facilitates the display and tracking of ethnic people groups throughout North America and the world.  Only generic information about each group is displayed and does not represent individuals.  Specific points of interest are also displayed.

2. What anonymous information does PeopleGroups.info collect?

Your Internet browser has a feature called “cookies” which stores small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to our site. However, cookies tell us nothing about who you are unless you specifically give us personally identifiable information.

PeopleGroups.info also automatically receives and records information from our servers and from your browser, including your IP address, your browser type, operating system, the time, and information about the page you requested.

We may use tracking technologies in a variety of ways, including:

  • keeping count of return visits to our site
  • accumulating and reporting anonymous, aggregate (data collected in mass), statistical information on site usage
  • determining which features users like best
  • saving your password so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit our site.

3. How does PeopleGroups.info use the information?

 PeopleGroups.info may also use your information to process transactions and to alert you to new information, products and services, events and other opportunities. 

 We may use tracking information to determine how much interest a page generates overall based on aggregate user demographics and traffic patterns to those pages. This helps us continue to better understand our users and their needs.

4. Is my use of the site secure?

PeopleGroups.info uses multiple levels of encryption and secure systems to upload, download, and store your data and documents. PeopleGroups.info uses industry best-practices to manage and store data and documents. All documents are encrypted during transport between the browser and our servers.

By using our services, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Policy.
