Collection, Processing, Use, Disclosure and Retention of Information About You

PP seeks to make your shopping experience safe. If unauthorized charges are made on your credit card as a result of shopping or submitting an order through PP’s Sites, the Fair Credit Billing Act prohibits your credit card company from holding you responsible for more than fifty dollars ($50) of fraudulent credit card charges.

To make sure you receive optimum protection when ordering from PP’s Sites, we recommend using the latest version of your Internet browser software or app and checking for and downloading all security updates.

To further protect your information, we restrict employee access to your information.
To determine whether your browser is in secure mode, you may confirm that a "lock" or a "key" icon is displayed in the lower left-hand corner of your browser window. You can also confirm this by looking at the URL bar on top of your browser. This line will typically show the first characters as "https" when a secure connection has been established rather than "http" which indicates a connection that is not secure.
