Privacy and Security
Our Privacy Pledge
Maintaining privacy and security of information about Piedmont Pines members is a high priority for us. We keep your contact information closely guarded, and share ONLY for official PPNA business. Here are some share/no share examples:
Requests for contact information
We refuse all requests for contact information unless we determine it's for official Piedmont Pines business. If there's any question, we'll contact you to ask you to contact the inquirer directly. Examples:
What if: You're new in the neighborhood and you join PPNA. We will put you in touch with your MON (local neighborhood) leader so you can be connected with your immediate neighbors.
What if: Your MON leader wants to exchange roster information with PPNA to better connect neighbors with neighbors for super local communication. We consider this official PPNA business and provide MON leaders only your contact information--name, address, email and phone numbers.
What if: Someone wants your email to invite you to a meeting that is not related to PPNA. We will normally refuse such requests. If we think it might be important to you, we'll send you an email asking you to contact the requesting party if you're interested.
What if: A Piedmont Pines committee asks for the email addresses of all block captains to hold a tip-sharing forum. PPNA will offer to send the invitation on behalf of the committee
What if: A vendor wants to email all our residents. No deal!
Our system offers the option of posting a directory of all members in our Member Center. We opted not to open up that option. Similarly, in the Committees section, we have opted not to post committee rosters.
User names and passwords
If you ask to have your user name and password sent to you, we will have the system generate an email to you with a link. Do not reply or forward this email to anyone, as the recipient will see your password spelled out.
