When you visit our websites, Peabody collects certain information (the same information that most websites log when they are accessed). This information (contained in the “header” of your request to access a Peabody web page) usually includes the browser type you used, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and the date and time of day.
Peabody needs this information to help us provide our services to you. For example, Peabody would need to validate your identity to maintain the security of your account.
Peabody also needs to know what Internet Protocol address your query came from so Peabody can send the appropriate pages back to you. In addition, Peabody logs this information for internal review purposes.
The log information is also important for security, audit, quality improvement and other internal processes.
Updating your information
You can change your personal information at any time, by accessing your account. You can terminate your account at any time by requesting this from our web team.
Peabody typically deactivates accounts within five business days of such requests. You should be aware, however, that residual copies of information may remain stored on Peabody’s systems even after the deletion of information or the termination of your account.
We hope you will enjoy using our websites.
