RoP endeavors to be very respectful about the privacy concerns of the visitors to its Web site. RoP also recognizes the valuable potential of technology to help people communicate with the entities whose Web sites they visit. Responsible use of the information you share with RoP is paramount. In order to help you understand the role technology plays in the collection and use of information you provide RoP, the following guidelines have been created.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information:
In general, you can visit RoP sites while not providing any personal information other than a first name. In some cases, RoP may automatically collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet Browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider and/or the Web site from which you linked to the RoP site.

Personally Identifiable Information:
RoP will not collect any personally identifiable information about you (e.g., your name, address, telephone number, or email address) unless you provide it to us voluntarily (for example, when posting on a board or requesting material provided by RoP such as fund raising premiums).

When you do provide us with personally identifiable information, we will take all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the information you share with us. In this regard, we will not give, sell or otherwise transfer your personal information to anyone outside the RoP organization unless we first disclosed it to you at the time of collection.

Children under 18 years of age:
RoP has no intention of collecting any personally identifiable information (e.g., name, address, telephone number, or email address) from individuals under eighteen (18) years of age. Unless otherwise disclosed during collection, RoP will not provide any personally identifying information it knowingly receives from individuals under 18 to any third party for any purposes whatsoever. Where appropriate, RoP will specifically instruct individuals under 18 not to submit such information on our Web sites without the consent of a parent or guardian.

If a child has provided us with personally identifiable information, a parent or guardian of that child should contact us by sending an email to manager -at- pemberley.com if they would like this information deleted from our records. We will use reasonable efforts to delete the child's information from our existing files. Parents are also encouraged to spend time online with their children to become familiar with the types of content available on RoP's Web site and the Internet in general. Control tools are available from online services and software manufacturers to create a safe environment for kids.

Use of Cookies:
When you visit our Web site, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a "Cookie" or similar file and will help us in many ways. For example, Cookies allow us to tailor a board to let you know when you last visited and how many new messages have been posted. With most Internet Browsers, you can erase Cookies from your computer hard drive, block all Cookies, or receive a warning before a Cookie is stored. Please refer to your Browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.

Other sensitive information:
Whenever you give RoP sensitive information (e.g., credit card numbers), RoP will take all commercially reasonable steps to protect such information by establishing a secure connection with your Web browser. Credit card numbers are used only for payment processing and are not retained for marketing purposes.

RoP is dedicated to protecting your personal information and welcomes comments and questions on this policy. RoP reserves the right to change this policy at any time by notifying guests of the existence of a new privacy policy
