Privacy Policy and Terms of Service

integrated into one website. Occasionally may see use of one or the other name on this
website but the names are one and the same. For the purpose of this privacy policy,
PainPal is used to cover either name.

PainPal collects personally identifiable information about you that you volunteer, such as
name, address, email address, phone numbers, and form of payment for the purpose of
providing you with/allowing you to participate in PainPal services and activities of your
choosing, or to contact you thereafter as follow up related to such, as necessary, or
infrequently to send information that may be of interest to you based upon previous
correspondence or communication.

As with most websites, when you visit this one, a small file called a cookie might be placed
on your computer for statistical and analytical purposes related to website usage and
traffic patterns. Other times, cookies may be placed on your computer to enable sign-in

In addition, this website also using advertisements served via Google, Inc., known as
Adsense, to generate revenue. Google, Inc. uses tracking modalities to monitor advertising
activity. Not all tracking is done via cookie usage; many web hosting companies and
advertiser servers add tracking devices in web building and advertising software, such as
web beacons and other technical means to statistically monitor usage without identifying
any personal information tied to an identifiable person.

Other times, as is very common on the internet at large, third party advertisers use cookie
browser data and web beacons to track individual movement across websites to better
target ads to the user's interests.  For the purposes of ads served via Google Adsense,  
Google's related privacy policies indicate these tracking devices do not gather personally
identifiable information about you.

website, Yahoo! Inc. Again, to opt out of cookies, be sure to set your browsers and
firewalls to do so, but be prepared to unblock first party cookies when you need to sign-in
for a future service requiring log-in, as well as when you go to a payment processing
website to pay for services offered via this website, painpal.com.
