A “cookie” is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from PAVE CENTRE’s web server and is stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies are used to collect non-identifying information about the user, such as web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific website. PAVE CENTRE may use two different types of cookies — session-based and persistent cookies. Session-based cookies expire at the end of a browser session and terminate once you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you remove them. Persistent cookies are used to provide website analytics. You can manually delete all cookies, including persistent ones, within your browser privacy settings menu.

As such, this website will collect information consistent with the terms of Google’s Privacy Policy which could include but is not limited to the collection of device-specific information, log information, location information and cookie-related information as described in the Google Privacy Policy. Because this website is enabled with one or more add-on Google services, Google will have access to and may use Google Services Collected Information that is collected by this website and may use such information to improve Google’s services. PAVE CENTRE will use such information, to the extent available such as by way of Google Analytics, to better understand use of the website and topics of interest to PAVE CENTRE members and site visitors and may adjust our marketing practices to better target information based on such information and usage.

While PAVE CENTRE is a U.S. based organization we do now and may in the future have members or strategic alliance partners in other countries, including Canada. We may transfer your personal information to recipients in countries other than the country in which the information was originally collected, in particular to the United States of America. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise disclosed to you at the time the data is collected.


We are committed to ensuring the privacy of your personal information and have established safeguards to help protect such information. For example, to protect your privacy, PAVE CENTRE uses passwords to help verify authorized user identity before granting access anywhere your personal information is stored. All online monetary transactions are done on a secure server. This means that information entered on the transaction page is encrypted before transmission. Though we strive to ensure the security of your information on our systems, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and data transmission over the internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure.


In order to provide certain services and goods at our website, we contract with other companies and individuals. These additional services and goods may include links to other websites from our website. PAVE CENTRE’s privacy practices may not be applicable at any third-party sites. When you leave the PAVE CENTRE website, we have no control regarding what information may be collected about you, nor do we control what third parties might do with the information. It is important that you review any privacy policies on third-party sites carefully before you use any services or programs offered.


California residents are entitled once a year to request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately prior calendar year. As set forth in this Privacy Policy, we comply with this law by offering our visitors the ability to tell us not to share their personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes. To receive the information described above or to request that we stop sharing your information, please contact us using the information provided below.


From time to time, PAVE CENTRE may revise its Privacy Policy to address changing technology, security measures and website functionality.
