Privacy Policy

Effective as of March 28, 2009

We built prorestorers.org to make it easy to share information with your friends, customers, fellow members and potential clients. We understand you may not want everyone in the world to have all the information you share on prorestorers.org, that is why we give you control of your information. Our collection process limits the information displayed on your Bio Page to what you allow.

prorestorers.org follows two core principles

1. You should have control over your personal information. prorestorers.org helps you share only the information you want to share. You choose what information you put on your Bio Page, including contact and personal information, pictures, interests and groups you have join.

2. You should have the ability to change or remove any information you have published. We want to help you easily change or remove that information at any time.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

prorestorers.org is about sharing information with others while providing you with privacy that restrict other users from accessing information you do not want displayed. We allow you to choose what information you provide to PRI to be displayed on the prorestorers.org web site. Our network architecture and your privacy preference allows you to make informed choices about who has access to your information. We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer the service, 2) legally required or, 3) permitted by you. For example:


  • News Feeds of the information you provide and make it available to other network members to promote your Bio Page.
  • We may provide information to service providers to help us bring you the services we offer. Specifically, we may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about PRI, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, to offer an online job application process, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we utilize third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the a specified purposes.
  • We occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a glimpse into the PRI world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g., blog postings)
  • We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the PRI services or using the Professional Restorers International name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
  • We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through on-site offers.
  • We may offer stores or provide services jointly with other companies on the prorestorers.org web site. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on prorestorers.org web site, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service.
  • If the ownership of all or substantially all of the PRI business, or individual business units owned by PRI, were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

When you use the prorestorers.org web site, certain information you post or have share with third parties (e.g., web site visitors), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos, or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the Privacy Policy.
