Pathlight's Consent & Privacy Practices
Your privacy is critically important to us.
Pathlight is located at:
220 Brookdale Drive
Springfield, MA 01104
Like most website operators, Pathlight collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Pathlight’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Pathlight’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Pathlight may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Pathlight also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://www.pathlightgroup.org blog posts. Pathlight only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Pathlight’s websites choose to interact with Pathlight in ways that require Pathlight to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Pathlight gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://www.pathlightgroup.org to provide a username and email address.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Links To External Sites
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Pathlight discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Pathlight’s behalf or to provide services available at Pathlight’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Pathlight’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Pathlight will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Pathlight discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Pathlight believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Pathlight, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of https://www.pathlightgroup.org and have supplied your email address, Pathlight may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Pathlight and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Pathlight takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Pathlight may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. Pathlight may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Pathlight does not disclose your personally-identifying information.
To enrich and perfect your online experience, Pathlight uses "Cookies", similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content, appropriate advertising and store your preferences on your computer.
Those who engage in transactions with Pathlight – by purchasing Pathlight's services or products, are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Pathlight collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Pathlight. Pathlight does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
If Pathlight, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Pathlight goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Pathlight may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
