We want you to understand the types of information we collect as you use our services.

We collect basic professional contact information with the sole purpose of:

The type of information we collect is the following:

The information Plan B International collects, and how that information is used, depends on your user profile. The user profile is established with the sole purpose of filtering the information we will share with you. Making sure we don’t send you information you don’t need or want.
