Visitors who do not wish to receive communications from Partners have the opportunity to opt out at any time.

www.PartnersPRN.org users should be aware that while data collected on forms is protected, PII disclosed voluntarily in comment, testimonial, or blog areas is viewable by others and may result in unsolicited messages from others.

Partners may also disclose account information when we have reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be intentionally or unintentionally causing injury to or interference with Partners’ rights or property, other www.PartnersPRN.org users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
