This privacy notice applies to and other websites or online services, including our portals, that are operated by or on behalf of PRA and that link or refer to this notice (the “Services”).

We may provide a separate supplemental notice when we collect personal information through the Services, because it will give you further relevant information about that processing.

This notice does not apply to personal information that is collected offline, or through websites or other online services that do not link to this notice.

Automatically-Collected Technical Information

We automatically receive certain technical information from you as you interact with the Services. This information includes network routing information (where you came from), information about your device and browser, your IP address (which may identify your general geographic location or company), and the date and time of your visit.

We also automatically receive and record information about your interactions with the Services, such as clickstream information (e.g., when each webpage was visited and how much time was spent on the page), how often you access the Services, website performance data, and aggregate usage data.

We use this information to administer the Services, to understand how visitors navigate and use the Services so that we can make improvements to the Services, and to personalize and enhance your experience while using the Services.

We also use this information to protect the security and integrity of the Services.

For more information, please see the “Cookies and Similar Technologies” section below.


Our Services use cookies (small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters that we put on your computer) and other similar tracking technologies (like web beacons, tags, and scripts) to provide the Services and to help collect information that we use to administer the Services, to analyze your use of the Services, and to assist with our promotional and marketing efforts.


PRA uses cookies—pieces of information that our web server sends to your computer when you access the Services. Cookies may collect information that includes a unique identifier, user preferences, and statistical information about the nature and volume of usage of the Services.

Some features and functions of the Services depend on cookies. If you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to use these features, and preferences that depend on cookies may be lost. If you choose to delete cookies, settings, and preferences controlled by those cookies will be deleted and may need to be recreated.

You may manage cookies at any time through your browser settings. To find out how to manage cookies, visit, then select “How to Control/Delete Cookies” and follow the instructions for your browser.

Web Beacons and Analytics Services

The Services may contain electronic images known as web beacons (also called single-pixel gifs or web bugs) that PRA uses to help deliver cookies on our websites, count users who have visited those websites, and analyze the usage of the Services.

The Services may also contain web beacons or similar technologies from third-party analytics providers that help us compile statistics about the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and other operations. These technologies allow the analytics providers to set or read their own cookies or other identifiers on your device, through which they can collect information about your online activities across applications, websites, or other products. For example, PRA uses Google Analytics to collect information about the number of visitors to the Services, where they come from, and how they use the Services. We use this information to help us to improve the Services.

Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, our Services do not currently respond to browser DNT signals.

Links to Third-Party Websites and Services

The Services may provide links to or the ability to connect with non-PRA websites, services or applications. Clicking on those links or otherwise enabling connections with those services may allow the third party to collect or share information about you. Those third-party websites or services are beyond our control and are not subject to this Privacy Notice. We encourage you to check the privacy policies and terms of use of any non-PRA websites or services before providing your Personal Information to them.

Changes to This Privacy Notice

We update this Privacy Notice from time to time. When we post changes, we will revise the “Last Updated” date at the end of this Privacy Notice.

If there are material changes to this Privacy Notice or to the ways we will use your personal information, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of the changes in the Services before they take effect or by directly sending you a notification. We encourage you to review this Privacy Notice periodically to be informed of how we are using your information and to be aware of any changes to the Privacy Notice.
