PPTA Statement on Internet Tools
The use of Internet tools on PPTA’s websites.
Internet tools such as cookies and web beacons may be used on PPTA’s websites to enhance our online security measures, measure the effectiveness and success of our websites and marketing campaigns, and to provide our online users with a more personalized online experience.
Cookies are sets of data exchanged between a server and a browser to facilitate the use of a website and to help understand how the site is used. Cookies are not used to retrieve data from your hard drive and do not run any programs on your computer.
Web beacons are small, transparent images embedded in web pages that, along with cookies, help provide the site operator with information about site usage and effectiveness. Most of the cookies we use are considered “session” cookies, meaning that they are not stored on your hard drive but are only available for the duration of the session (until you log out or close your browser).
How PPTA websites use internet tools:

Personalized online experience
- to help us better understand your interests and needs;
