"Personal identifiable information" is information about a natural person that is readily identifiable to that specific individual. Personal identifiable information includes such things as an individual's name in combination with their social security number, driver’s license number, or other financial information such as a payment card number.

If you believe that your personal identifiable information is being used for a purpose other than what was intended when submitted, you may contact the person identified in the Contact Information Section of this statement.
The collection of personal identifiable information requested from or volunteered by children online or by email will be treated the same as information given by an adult, and may be subject to public access.
