1. Acknowledgement and Acceptance of Terms
PLEXUS International ("PLEXUS") is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you or your computer interact with our website(s). By accessing the PLEXUS Certification Alliance website ("PLEXUS-CERT Site(s)"), you acknowledge and fully understand PLEXUS's Privacy Statement and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Privacy Statement.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can send us an email at email@example.com
2. Participating Merchant Policies
Related services and offerings with links from this website, including vendor sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective website. Online merchants and others who participate in PLEXUS-CERT Site services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.
3. Information We Collect and How We Use It
PLEXUS collects certain information from and about its users three ways: from our PLEXUS-CERT Site Server logs, using Cookies, and directly from the user.
Web Server Logs
. When you visit our PLEXUS-CERT Site(s), we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include: • Your Internet Protocol (IP) address. • The kind of browser and/or computer you use. • Number of links you click within the site. • State or country from which you accessed the site. • Date and time of your visit. • Name of your Internet service provider. • Web page you linked to our site from. • Pages you viewed on the site • History of courses and tests you have taken and corresponding results and data
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you select the "Remember me" option on the login page of the PLEXUS-CERT Site, a cookie will be placed on your computer to allow the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. If your personally-identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, delete or deactivate it by making the change on your member information by emailing our Customer Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org
PLEXUS reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into a site that relies on third-party cookies).
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our PLEXUS-CERT Site.
Personal Information Use

When you register or purchase, we will request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number or other relevant information. If you are purchasing a service, we will request financial information. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the services you purchased. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally-identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.
4. The option to opt-out of communications from PLEXUS
When we ask for your personally-identifiable information, we provide you the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having this information used for certain purposes. For example, if you purchase a product/service but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form. However, use of your personal information for your professional development is necessary and there is no option to opt out for this purpose.
