Information We Collect
– Online Contact Forms –
We use SSL for the online contact forms, which ensures that all communications between you and our mail server will be encrypted (https:// instead of http:// in the address bar of contact forms). Your message contents will be hidden from prying eyes and encryption helps mitigate identity theft, the sending of false messages, etc. However, since the form messages are transmitted over the Internet, POF cannot assure that the messages are completely secure. If you are uncomfortable with such risks, you may decide not to use the online forms to communicate with POF. You must be aware that the messages may be delayed or undelivered.
