The types of Personal Information we may collect could include, among other things (collectively, "Personal Information"): (1) contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number, email address); (2) demographic information (e.g., date of birth, gender, marital status); (3) Internet protocol (or IP) address or device ID/UDID; (4) mother's maiden name (parent's name prior to marriage); (5) health information; (6) asset and income information; (7) bank account and credit/debit card numbers; (8) racial or ethnic origin; and (9) your physical location while at one of our properties.
We may collect Personal Information about you from the following sources:
We may sponsor competitions and/or promotions through the Web Properties. Your participation is entirely voluntary. You may be asked to provide personally identifiable information including, but not limited to, your name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate. We may also transfer Personal Information to certain advertising or marketing partners from whom you have requested to receive information.
Browser Log Files: Our servers automatically log each visitor to the Web Properties and collect and record certain information about each visitor. This information includes or may include your Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser language, browser type, operating system, domain names, browsing history (including time spent at a domain, time and date of your visit), referring/exit web pages and URLs, and number of clicks. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about the user other than the IP address from which the visitor has accessed the Web Properties.
Web Beacons: Some of our web pages and electronic communications may contain images, which may or may not be visible to you, known as Web Beacons (sometimes referred to as "clear gifs"). Web Beacons collect only limited information that includes a cookie number; time and date of a page view; and a description of the page on which the Web Beacon resides. We may also carry Web Beacons placed by third party advertisers. These Web Beacons do not carry any Personal Information and are only used to track usage of the Web Properties and activities associated with the Web Properties. See the Third Party Opt Out section below.
Unique Identifier: We may assign you a unique internal identifier to help keep track of your future visits. We use this information to gather aggregate demographic information about our visitors, and we use it to personalize the information you see on the Web Properties and some of the electronic communications you receive from us. We keep this information for our internal use, and this information is not shared with others.
Third Party Opt Out: Although we do not presently do so, in the future we may allow third-party companies to serve advertisements and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit the Web Properties. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (including, but not limited to, click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to the Web Properties in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party Web Beacon to collect this information, as further described above. Through these technologies, the third party may have access to and use non-personalized information about your online usage activity.
You can opt out of certain online behavioral services through any one of the ways described below (you do not need to go to each opt-out site, one is sufficient). After you opt out, you will continue to receive advertisements, but those advertisements will no longer be as relevant to you.
Note: If you opt out as described above, you should not delete your cookies. If you delete your cookies, you will need to opt out again.
The Personal Information that we collect is used for four main purposes:
We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with third parties to demonstrate the usage patterns for advertisements, content, functionality, promotions, competitions, games and/or services on the Web Properties and/or on third party websites.
We also reserve the right to disclose Personal Information and/or non-personally identifiable information in connection with the enforcement of our Terms, to take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the Web Properties, and to protect our rights, property, or personal safety and that of our users or others.
We reserve the right to transfer your Personal Information, as well as any other information, in connection with the sale or other disposition of all or part of our business and/or assets. We also cannot make any representations regarding the use or transfer of your Personal Information or other information that we may have in the event of our bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, receivership or an assignment for the benefit of creditors, and you expressly agree and consent to the use and/or transfer of your Personal Information or other information in connection with a sale or transfer of some or all of our assets in any of the above described proceedings. Furthermore, we cannot and will not be responsible for any breach of security by any third parties or for any actions of any third parties that receive any of the information that is disclosed to us.
The Web Properties may also link to other websites and contain advertisements of third parties. We are not and cannot be responsible for the privacy policies of those websites of third parties or for how they treat information (including, but not limited to personally identifiable information) about their users.
For certain features available through the Web Properties, we may require the use of encryption technologies provided for your protection and/or account. We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your username, password and account information.
You, however, are ultimately responsible for protecting your username, password and account information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to: (a) immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your username, password and/or any other breach of security; and (b) ensure that you log out from your account at the end of each session. While we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that any information transmitted through the internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error.
For individuals interested in job opportunities with us, the Web Properties currently or may in the future allow prospective employees to request additional job opportunity information. The Web Properties may be used to collect Personal Information from prospective employees for human resources recruitment purposes. By submitting any of the foregoing information, you consent to its dissemination to, and use by, us and our affiliates. The foregoing also applies to job application inquiries that you may transmit to us other than through the Web Properties.
Whether you submit any Personal Information to us is entirely up to you. You are under no obligation to provide Personal Information. However, this information is essential for the provision and quality of some of the services we offer to you (for example, enabling you to receive free Wi-Fi at one of our mall properties, if available) so we cannot provide you with certain services if you choose to withhold requested information.
Please note that opting out of the disclosure and use of your Personal Information as a prospective employee may prevent you from being hired as an employee to the extent you are using this Web Properties to apply for an open position.
If we collect Personal Information from you, such information will not be disclosed or used by us for purposes that are incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or for which you subsequently gave authorization unless you affirmatively consent to such disclosure and use.
You may opt out of online behavioral advertising by following the instructions set forth above under the above section "Additional Ways That Information Is Collected Through the Web Properties," subsection "Third Party Opt Out."
Under California's "Shine the Light" law, California residents who provide certain personally identifiable information in connection with obtaining products or services for personal, family or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us (once a calendar year) information about the customer information we shared (if any) with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2018 will receive information regarding 2017 sharing activities).
To obtain this information, please send an email message to email@example.com with "Request for California Privacy Information" in the subject line and in the body of your message. We will provide the requested information to you at your email address in response.
Please be aware that not all information sharing is covered by the "Shine the Light" requirements and only information on covered sharing will be included in our response.
Additionally, because we may collect your Personal Information from time to time, California's Online Privacy Protection Act requires us to disclose how we respond to "do not track" requests and other similar mechanisms. Currently, our policy is that we do not recognize "do not track" requests from Internet browsers and similar devices.
If you have additional questions or comments of any kind, or if you see anything on the Web Properties that you think is inappropriate or incorrect, please let us know by email or by sending your comments or requests to:

1. Agreement to Conduct Transactions Electronically.
You understand and agree that all of your transactions, registration, credit card and gift certificate purchases, etc. with or through the Site may, at our option, be conducted electronically. You further agree that we may determine (from time to time) to provide all or any part of our services non-electronically, and that those services will still be governed by this Agreement unless you enter into a different agreement on a form provided by us. You agree that we may communicate with you through electronic ("email") messages, and if you forget or lose your password, you agree that we may send it to you by email. You are always free to visit one of our Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust mall locations to shop, if you do not wish to have your transactions with or through the Site conducted electronically. If this is the case, you should not enter into this Agreement and you should only access the non-registered, non-transactional areas of the Site.
In order to purchase mall gift certificates on this Site, you must provide complete and accurate personal information consisting of your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card information and shipping address. Your ability to purchase gift certificates is subject to limits established by Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust or by your credit card issuer. The bank may bill your credit card at the time gift certificates are ordered, in its discretion. You must pay all amounts accrued in your account, including any shipping and handling charges, when due. Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust may in its sole discretion decline service to or terminate any account. Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust will not be responsible for, nor will they be held liable for any breaches in transaction security by any third party.
This web Site utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when ordering mall gift certificates, an advanced encryption technology that protects the information you send us against unauthorized access. This safeguard has helped to make shopping on the Internet significantly safer than using your credit card at a restaurant or department store.

Your visit to these Third-Party Web sites, and any purchases you make from such web sites, are subject to the terms and conditions of such Third-Party Web sites, not the terms and conditions of this Site.
