Personal Identity Portal Privacy Policy

By using the Personal Identity Portal Service ("PIP"), you agree to the collection and use of your personal information as described in this policy.

The Personal Identity Portal Service is an online identity registrar that provides services related to remote website sign in and user profile collection display and exchange.

Information Collected/Tracked by the PIP

The PIP requires certain basic information from you to create an account:

A username, which is in the form of an OpenID identifier

A password

An email address is also requested that you may choose to verify. Non-verification of the email address does not prevent you from utilizing the system.

The PIP also collects optional personal information for display on your profile page. Optional data collected includes, but is not limited to:


Personal and work email addresses

Personal and work addresses

Personal and work URLs

Instant Messaging addresses

Phone Numbers

The information that you submit is at your discretion. You may decide what information you wish to provide to and store in our Service.

Information not Directly Submitted by Users to the PIP

This is information we collect that is not personally identifiable, such as browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all users to the site and is used to monitor usage.

Use of Information Obtained by the PIP

Information users submit to the PIP

You have the ability to designate each field in your Trust Profile as to what you choose to display to requesting parties.

Information that users do not submit to us

We use your server, IP address, and browser-type related information in the general administration of our website.

Sharing of the Information this Site Gathers/Tracks

Except where you are expressly informed otherwise, we do not sell, rent, share, or trade any of your personal information you have designated as private unless required by law or for the protection of your use of the Service. However, the PIP may share profile information and aggregate usage information in a non-personally identifiable manner to third parties in order to provide usage information about the Service. In such situations we will use reasonable efforts not to disclose private information that may be used to personally identify you.
