Such collection is done with appropriate notice and consent. PSL may collect your personal information through your access and use of website, web-based applications, or mobile applications, during conversations or correspondence with PSL representatives, or when you purchase products or services or complete an online application form. PSL may collect personal information from you in connection with:
The types of personal information PSL may collect from you includes: personal and business contact information, such as name, address, telephone number, and email address; in some cases, your business contact data may be provided to PSL by a designated entity within your business or enterprise (such as a member of your IT department); financial information, such as your credit/debit card number or other billing information; other unique information such as user IDs and passwords, product functionality, product and service preferences, contact preferences, educational and employment background, and job interest data; geo-location data such as your IP address or physical location when you request location based services; details of the products and services you have purchased from us or which you have enquired about, together with any additional information necessary to deliver those products and services and to respond to your enquiries; any additional information relating to you that you provide to us directly through our websites or indirectly through use of our websites or online presence, through our representatives or otherwise; or information you provide to us through our support center, customer surveys or visits by our representatives from time to time.
If you post, comment, indicate interest or complaint, or share personal information, including photographs, to any public forum on an PSL site, social network, blog, or other such forum, please be aware that any information you submit can be read, viewed, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to contact you, send you unsolicited messages, or for purposes that neither you nor PSL have control over. PSL is not responsible for the personal information you choose to provide in these forums.
In addition to the information you provide, PSL may also collect information during your visit to a PSL website, web-based application, or a website “powered by” another company on behalf of PSL, through our data collection tools, which include web beacons, cookies, and embedded web links. These tools collect certain traffic information that your browser sends to a website, such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived. They may also collect information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address, unique device identifier, clickstream behavior (i.e., the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with PSL websites or “powered by” websites) and product information. PSL may also use some of these data collection tools in connection with certain emails and communications sent from PSL and therefore may collect information using these tools when you open the email or click on a link contained in the email.
PSL also collects information from publicly or commercially available sources that it deems credible. Such information may include your name, address, email address, preferences, interests, and demographic/profile data. The information PSL collects from its public or commercial sources may be used along with the information PSL collects when you visit PSL’s sites. For example, PSL may compare the geographic information acquired from commercial sources with the IP address collected by data collection tools to derive your general geographic area.
Where necessary, PSL may also use information provided by you or your employer, together with information from publicly available and other online and offline sources, to conduct due diligence checks on business contacts as part of PSL’s anti-corruption program. PSL may also collect some information that is not personal information because it does not identify you or anyone else. For example, we may collect anonymous answers to surveys or aggregated information about how users use our websites, products or services.
PSL may use your information to: manage our relationship with you; assist you in completing a transaction or order; prevent and detect security threats, fraud or other malicious activity; communicate with you about PSL products, services or support and send marketing communications; provide products, services and support to you; improve and develop products, services and support including through quality control, research and data analysis activities; update you on new services and benefits; provide personalized promotional offers; measure performance of marketing initiatives, ads, and websites “powered by” another company on PSL’s behalf; allow you to participate in contests and surveys; answer inquiries, provide information, support or advice about existing and new products or services; personalize PSL websites; provide you with access to protected areas of our website; assess and improve the performance and operation of PSL websites; to keep your contact details up to date and provide updated details to PSL service providers and suppliers where necessary; or to process and respond to any complaint made by you. We will give you the opportunity to choose your privacy preferences regarding the marketing communications we send.
Credit card information is used only for payment processing and fraud prevention. Salary information, government issued identification number and other sensitive personal information is not used for any other purpose and will not be kept longer than necessary for providing the services, unless you ask us to retain your credit card information for future purchases.
PSL may also transfer your personal information to other PSL-owned business entities in the US and worldwide. By accessing PSL websites, registering for an account or service, or otherwise providing PSL with your personal information, you consent to this transfer of your personal information throughout the PSL network of entities.
Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, PSL decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize businesses in some countries. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of it from sellers. It is PSL’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

If you believe we might have any information from or about a child, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The following sections provide additional information about commonly-used web technology tools.
A “cookie” is a small data file transferred by a website to your computer’s hard drive. PSL or its service providers send cookies when you surf our site or sites where our ads appear, make purchases, request or personalize information, or register yourself for certain services. Accepting the cookies used on our site, sites that are “powered by” another company on PSL’s behalf, or sites where our ads appear may give us access to information about your browsing behavior, which we may use to personalize your experience. Cookies are typically classified as either “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies.
You can find information on popular browsers and how to adjust your cookie preferences in the help and support section of your browser.
From time to time, PSL will use Flash local shared objects (LSOs) to store Flash content information and preferences. LSOs perform similar functions to HTML browser cookies and deposit small files on your computer, which are commonly called Flash cookies. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies and cookie management tools provided by your browser may not remove Flash cookies.
Some PSL.com and third-party web pages, applications, and HTML-formatted email use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your website usage and your interaction with email, as well as to measure performance on PSL.com, applications, and websites “powered by” another company on PSL’s behalf. A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1×1) or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date of a page viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Depending on the context, web beacons may also refer to content on a third-party server, and may be used by service providers to deliver relevant advertising to you.
You may be able to disable web beacons in email messages by not downloading images contained in the message you receive (this feature varies depending on the email software used on your personal computer). However, doing this may not always disable a web beacon or other automatic data collection tools in the email message due to specific email software capabilities.
If you choose to receive marketing emails or newsletters from PSL, PSL may automatically collect personal information about you. For example, through web beacons and personalized URLs embedded in these emails or newsletters, PSL can track whether you’ve opened those messages and whether you’ve clicked on links contained within those messages.
Emails from PSL often use links designed to lead you to a relevant area on the web, after redirection through PSL’s servers. The redirection system allows PSL to change the destination URL of these links, if necessary, and to determine the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives.
In emails, such web links may also allow PSL to determine whether you have clicked a link in an email, and this information about the interaction may be connected to your personal identity. If you do not want PSL to collect information about the links that you click, you can change your choice about how you receive communications from PSL (i.e. choose a text-based version of the message where available) or choose not to click links in an email that PSL sends.
PSL contracts with service providers to place ads on websites owned by third parties. In addition, some websites may be “powered by” a service provider to provide PSL offers on PSL’s behalf. These service providers may send cookies from and use web beacons on these third-party websites and on PSL.com. The cookies and web beacons may enable PSL to collect information about the pages you viewed and the links you clicked. Most web browsers offer you the ability to inform websites and ad networks that you do not want your online activities tracked through a “Do Not Track” feature.
