At that point, if you wish to opt-out of the use of your information, please notify the webmaster at the above e-mail address. No information about visitors will ever be traded or sold to third parties or used for advertising.

We keep correspondence indefinitely, but regularly delete all other information that is collected from site visitors.

SPAM POLICY

PCS never sends commercial e-mail to any address for any reason. If you receive a commercial e-mail which appears to originate from this domain, then it is a forgery. PCS uses the Sender Policy Framework and DomainKeys Identified Mail to help prevent forged e-mail; however, this feature only works if your incoming mail server supports this standard. SpamCop can assist you in determining the true sender of any forged e-mail and will allow you to report it.

It is a violation of United States federal law (the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003) and Texas state law (Texas Business & Commerce Code Title 4, Chapter 46) to send unsolicited commercial e-mail to any PCS e-mail address. Your e-mail may be blocked if it originates from particular countries or companies which have been unresponsive to resolving spamming issues.
