1.  WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

Our Web server may collect your IP (which stands for Internet Protocol) address, which is the unique number assigned to every computer directly connected to the Internet, often provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Our Web server may also collect the domain you used to access this Site, the type and version of browser and operating system you are using, and the Web site you came from and visit next. This information may be used by us and our business associates to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about visitors to this Site in general. We may also use this data to monitor Site performance for systems administration purposes, to make this Site easier and more convenient to use and to report information in aggregate form to our advertisers (e.g. how many visitors log in to this Site). We may also use this information to serve you advertising that we think is likely to be more interesting for you and more productive for our advertisers ("targeted advertising").

 

If you register on-line with us, we may collect additional information to provide you with services (see Personal Information Collection below). If you communicate with us through the Site, you will be providing personal information to us.

 

There are times when we may ask you for or you may choose to provide information about yourself or your organization to assist us in meeting your various needs. To provide certain services, we may ask you to provide, among other things, your name, postal code, and email address ("Registration Information"). At times, we may conduct on-line surveys to better understand the needs, profiles, and experience of our visitors. We may also use information that you provide to us in order to respond to a specific request from you.

 

2. PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE AND DISTRIBUTION TO THIRD PARTIES

 

Generally

There are times when we may ask you for or you may choose to provide information about yourself or your business to assist us in meeting your various needs. This information may be used for the following purposes:

 

(a)    answering your questions and providing you with services you have requested,

 

(b)   giving producers and developers of the Site information that is useful in determining appropriate new features, content and services,

 

(c)    providing advertisers with aggregate, not individual, information about our customers,

 

(d)   informing you of additional services provided by Pacrim or by our business partners, that may interest you, or

 

(e)    as otherwise set out in the Terms and Conditions applicable to the Site or the Services.

 

Personally identifiable information about individual users is not shared with any third parties, except

 

(a)    for service providers acting on our behalf solely to enable us to more efficiently provide the services and features offered on our Site, and in such cases, the service providers act under strict contractual controls requiring them to maintain the confidentiality of information and restricting them from accessing or using the information for any purpose other than providing the service for which the information was provided, or

 

(b)   to facilitate the provision of the Services, such as, fulfilling reporting requirements.

 

We may also aggregate statistics that we gather about the visitors to the Site, sales, traffic patterns, and services and provide these statistics to third parties; however, when we do, except as provided in the Terms of Service, these statistics will not include any personal information that identifies individuals. We may also use, disclose and communicate your personal information in good faith if required to do so by law, including by an order of any court, or in order to protect or defend a legal interest.

 

Although we use all reasonable means to ensure that the information you provide to us is not used by third parties for purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Service, Pacrim is not responsible for any improper use of your personal information that is beyond our control.

We may also provide information that you provide to us in order to improve the Site or Service or to share, in an aggregate format, with advertisers or third party service providers. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence. We retain e-mail addresses of those who communicate via email only for purposes of improving our services or responding to requests.

 

3. HOW IS YOUR INFORMATION SECURED AND PROTECTED?

The security of your personal information is important to us. Pacrim takes technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to protect personal information that you provide to us. When you register, apply or provide information to us over the Internet, or when you access information you have provided or reports we have created, this information may not be secure, and it is technically possible that it could be illicitly or illegally intercepted or monitored while it is being transmitted over the Internet.

 

We instruct our employees with access to your personal information that it is to be used only in adherence with the principles set forth in this Privacy Policy and the laws applicable to each specific business. Employees who misuse customer information may be subject to disciplinary action.

 

There are some things that you can do to help protect the security of your personal information as well. For instance, never give out your password, since this is what is used to access all of your account information. Also remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you finish using the our site or service or surfing the Web, so that other people using the same computer won't have access to your information.

 

4. WHAT IF WE CHANGE OUR PRIVACY POLICY?
