The following policies are only in effect for the web pages, newsletters, discussion lists and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by PDI Companies and not to any other web sites that you may be able to access from the site, each of which may have data collection and use practices and policies that differ materially from this Privacy Policy.

What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer’s “Internet Protocol” IP address. When a visitor requests a page from any web site within the pdicompanies.com, our web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, calculate advertising statistics and to prevent and investigate misuse of the pdicompanies.com, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement.

Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?
We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a numerical label that is assigned to devices participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication between its nodes. An IP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing. Its role has been characterized as follows: “A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there.”

The designers of TCP/IP defined an IP address as a 32-bit number and this system, known as Internet Protocol Version 4 or IPv4, is still in use today. However, due to the enormous growth of the Internet and the predicted depletion of available addresses, a new addressing system (IPv6), using 128 bits for the address, was developed in 1995 and standardized by RFC 2460 in 1998. Although IP addresses are stored as binary numbers, they are usually displayed in human-readable notations, such as 208.77.188.166 (for IPv4), and 2001:db8:0:1234:0:567:1:1 (for IPv6).
