Your Security Is Important to Us
An increasingly common scam—called "phishing"—uses official-looking emails to deceive consumers into disclosing their personal information. The email often directs the recipient to a "look-alike" Web site of a legitimate business, tricking consumers into thinking they are responding to a valid request.
To avoid getting caught in any of these scams, please remember to:
• Keep your password secret and change it periodically.
• Never give out your vital account information by email or telephone, unless you initiated the contact. PPCL never sends emails asking for personal information.
• You may change or update the information you previously provided to PPCL by contacting the webmaster at web@provenanceproperties.com.
• Always end your secure session on the Internet completely by clicking the “Log Out” link and by closing your browser's window before you leave the computer.

We reserve the right to revise this Privacy Policy at any time. If we change this Privacy Policy, the changes will be posted on the website. PPCL will use and disclose a user’s personally identifiable information in accordance with the Privacy Policy as updated from time to time by PPCL.
Please note that PPCL is not obliged to notify visitors to the website who have contacted PPCL of any subsequent changes to this Privacy Policy. Regularly reviewing this page ensures you are always aware of the information PPCL collects, how it is used and under what circumstances.
