Our General Policy

Detroit PAL Inc. recognizes the importance of protecting information we may collect from visitors to our site. Our policy is to use the information we acquire from visitors to our site for internal purposes only, and we maintain appropriate security measures to keep this information private. The only exception is “Comments” which are posted publicly using a link to the user’s Facebook or other social media profiles.

Users can visit the site without revealing any information about themselves. If one chooses to give us personal information via the Internet for the purposes of correspondence, processing an order, or providing a subscription to a publication, then it is our intent to let you know how we will use such information.
If users tell us that they do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect those wishes. We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us, as well as the type of computer and operating system you are using. We analyze this data for trends, insights and statistics.

Detroit PAL Inc. takes precautions to keep the user information disclosed to us secure, and such information will not be disclosed to third parties for commercial purposes. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Detroit PAL Inc. uses SSL encryption for all financial transactions to protect personal information.

If you provide an email address or other personal information (excluding financial information) when you visit our site, we may enter such information into one of our data bases so we can contact you to ask your input, provide information about our programs and events, and request contributions. All electronic communications from us do contain a link to a unsubscribe form and you may elect to unsubscribe from any or all of our communications at any time.

Use of Cookies

Certain sections of the Detroit PAL Inc. website use “cookies” to store user information. A cookie is a small string of text that a web site can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address. Currently, web sites use cookies to enhance the user’s visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user’s ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited, or keep track of selections in a “shopping cart.” Cookies help us understand which parts of our web sites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the site even better. Cookies were originally designed to help a web site distinguish a user’s browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site.

If you are just browsing Detroit PAL Inc.’s website, a cookie identifies only your browser. If you become a registered user on a Detroit PAL Inc. website (with a user ID and password), we may use cookies so that we can provide personalized information that we believe will be of value to you based on preferences you have indicated while visiting the site. It is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is being placed – this way, you have the opportunity to decide whether to accept the cookie. If you are just browsing our site and are not a registered user, you do not have to accept a cookie and you can still continue browsing the site. However, if you are visiting a site where you will be accessing a confidential account, you must accept that site’s cookies because they are essential for site administration and security.

User Agreement

If you have any questions about this User Agreement, contact Detroit PAL Inc. If you do not agree with these terms of this User Agreement, you may not use the site. Detroit PAL Inc. reserves the right to change this User Agreement at any time without notice.
