What Information do we collect? When you visit our web site, (http://www.PMI.ns.ca) and sign up for an activity, you enter your member number. That number is validated against the latest information from PMI Headquarters. The event cost is calculated based on your membership status according the latest release of membership information from PMI Global.
In order to enhance our Web site, we may track the way our visitors and customers are using the site. Personal information, such as your name and e-mail address, is not included in this analysis.

We do not use or release any information for any purpose except to verify your transaction.
The website allows the membership to track the events for which they register and attend and collect PDUs. All of that information is retained.
Credit Card Transactions: PSiGate processes credit card transactions. This professional secure payment authorization service was chosen for security and reliability. Our web site collects name and address information and PMI ID. This user information and the price of the event are passed to PSiGate, which collects the credit card number, verifies it and processes the transaction. Information collected during transactions is maintained in their database for accounting and billing purposes. Our web site maintains a list of the people who have tried to process transactions and those that have succeeded for each event. This provides a registration list for each event. Information from these transactions is not released to third parties. Credit card information is not available to anyone outside of PSiGate.
