Personal information is data that can be used to identify or contact a single person.
Here are some examples of the types of personal information PFSAFETYSIGN.COM may collect and how we may use it:
We may have received your personal information from other persons if that person has shared their content with you using PF SAFETY SIGN products, sent gift certificates and products, or invited you to participate in PFSAFETYSIGN.COM services or forums. We may also validate the information provided by you when creating an PFSAFETYSIGN.COM ID with a third party for security and fraud prevention purposes.
If you are a potential candidate for employment with PFSAFETYSIGN.COM, we may have received your personal information from third parties such as recruiters or external websites. We will use the personal information we receive to contact you about a potential opportunity or in evaluating your candidacy. If you did not provide us your personal information directly, we will inform you of the source when we first contact you regarding your candidacy. For research and development purposes, we may use datasets such as those that contain images, voices or other data that could be associated with an identifiable person. When acquiring such datasets, we do so in accordance with applicable law in the jurisdiction in which the dataset is hosted. When using such datasets for research and development, we do not attempt to re-identify individuals who may appear therein.
We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
We gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. PFSAFETYSIGN.COM may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the PFSAFETYSIGN.COM website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages. Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
At times PFSAFETYSIGN.COM may provide third parties with certain personal information to provide or improve our products and services, including to deliver products at your request, or to help PFSAFETYSIGN.COM market to consumers. When we do, we require those third parties to handle it in accordance with relevant laws. PFSAFETYSIGN.COM does not sell personal information, and personal information will never be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.
PFSAFETYSIGN.COM shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever PFSAFETYSIGN.COM operates.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for PFSAFETYSIGN.COM to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate. We may also disclose information about you, but only where there is a lawful basis for doing so, if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. This could include providing information to public or governmental authorities. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
PFSAFETYSIGN.COM takes the security of your personal information very seriously. PFSAFETYSIGN.COM online services such as the PFSAFETYSIGN.COM Online Store protect your personal information during transit using encryption such as Transport Layer Security (TLS). When your personal data is stored by PFSAFETYSIGN.COM, we use computer systems with limited access housed in facilities using physical security measures.
PFSAFETYSIGN.COM does not take any decisions involving the use of algorithms or profiling that significantly affect you.
You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by signing in to your PFSAFETYSIGN.COM account. For other personal information we hold, we will provide you with access (including a copy) for any purpose including to request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if PFSAFETYSIGN.COM is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes.
We may decline to process requests that are frivolous/vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. We may also decline aspects of deletion or access requests if we believe doing so would undermine our legitimate use of data for anti-fraud and security purposes as described earlier.
To provide location-based services on PFSAFETYSIGN.COM products, PFSAFETYSIGN.COM and our partners and licensees, such as maps data providers, may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your PF SAFETY IOT DEVICE. Where available, location-based services may use GPS, Bluetooth, and your IP Address, along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations, and other technologies to determine your devices’ approximate location. Unless you provide consent, this location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by PFSAFETYSIGN.COM and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, your PF SAFETY IOT device may share its geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.
Some location-based services offered by PFSAFETYSIGN.COM, such as the “Find My” feature, require your personal information for the feature to work.
PFSAFETYSIGN.COM websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services.
Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.
