Website Privacy Details
We believe that your personal information deserves protection. While you can visit PositiveESolutions.com (the “Web Site”) without registering or providing any personal information, you will need to register if you want to make a purchase. (As noted in the Legal Statement on the Web Site, except where stated otherwise, the term "PES" used on the Web Site shall be deemed to include Positive E Solutions Inc., and their respective affiliates, subsidiaries, successors and assigns.)
What does PES use your personal information for?
- To build your account with PES. To process your orders. To personalize the delivery of contents to you. In addition, we require some information (your name and e-mail address) when you submit a Reader Review. These reviews are accessible to all site visitors - if you don't want your comments to be viewed by all visitors, don't submit them. PES reserves the right to edit or remove any Reviews that are deemed, in our sole discretion, to be offensive, illegal, or inappropriate in any way for the Web Site. PES also reserves the right to remove any submissions that it deems to be off-topic.
- PES may also use personal account information and data collected through your personal identification to generate statistics and aggregate reports for internal use and for sharing with affiliates, subsidiaries, licensees, successors and advertisers. These statistics and aggregate reports will not contain any personally identifiable information. Your identity is kept anonymous.
How does PES protect your personal information?
- When you provide us with personal information or place an order, it’s done through a secure server or by telephone contact. One of today’s most advanced security systems - Secure Socket Layers (SSL) - encrypts all information you provide before sending it to our own server. Only when it reaches the PES servers is your information decrypted.
Does PES use “Cookies”?
Does PES disclose personal customer information to anyone other than PES?
- Users' non-aggregated specific personal information is not currently sold, rented or made available to anyone other than PES, but we may decide to do so in the future. If this were to happen, PES would announce such a plan and ask you to "opt in". By default, we'd assume that you don't want in - if you wanted to share your personal information, you would have to respond. In the absence of such a response, your information would not be shared with anyone other than PES.
- PES reserves the right to co-operate with local, provincial and national officials in any investigation requiring either personal information -- including any personal information provided online through PositiveESolutions.com -- or reports about lawful or unlawful user activities on the Web Site.
