Web Site Tracing information

Similar to other web sites, PD records certain tracing information every time a visitor uses the site.  This information is recorded to track the performance and security of the site.  The web server records every web page that is viewed and various technical data such as an IP address, the operating system and browser version, and the name of the page that was viewed.  This information is not linked to any specific user, and is used in the aggregate to maintain and improve the quality of the web site.


As with most sophisticated web sites, we make use of “cookies”.  As you enter the web site, we create a temporary session cookie to pass your session information among the web pages.  This session cookie exists until you log out by closing your browser or are logged out automatically because you are inactive for a period of time.  Upon logging out, your session cookie is deleted.  Temporary session cookies are not stored on your computer’s hard disk.

If you elect to store your log-on user id and password on your computer, we create a “permanent” cookie that is stored on your hard drive.  If you return to the site and log on within 90 days, we fetch this cookie and use it to log you on.  Each time you reuse a cookie in this manner extends the life of the cookie for 90 days.  If you do not visit the site and log onto the private functions within 90 days, this cookie will expire and you will have to log on “manually” by typing your user id and password.  If your membership lapses, you will not be able to log on either via a cookie or by manually entering your information.
