What information we collect about you
The information we collect on our Site generally falls into the following two categories: “personal information” and “non-personally identifiable information.” Personal information refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are (for example, your name, job title, company, physical mailing address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers and, if applicable, financial information such as your credit card information). Non-personally identifiable information refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. If we do combine non-personally identifiable information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

In general, we collect your personal information when you voluntarily provide it to us, such as when you register with us or place an order for products or services. We also collect information when you voluntarily complete customer surveys, provide feedback and participate in competitions. In addition, our Site may use “cookies” to gather non-personally identifiable information.

Cookies
Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information. This information is used to track visitor use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity. For further information visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org. You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the above websites tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However in a few cases some of our Site features may not function as a result.

Why your information is processed and how it will be used
Personal information you provide to us is used to process your order, manage your account, deliver the services you request (including communicating with you about your subscription to our publications and your registration for a trade show, conference or event), and to respond to your inquiries and contact you about the Site and/or our services on the basis of your consent and may be used in a number of ways, for example:

  • registration for attendance at certain PM360 trade shows, conferences and events;
  • subscriptions to PM360 publications, including e-newsletters; and
  • to access certain features or functions of our Site

In processing your order, we may send your details to, and also use financial information you submit to collect payments for your purchases, orders, and registrations.

We would like to send you information about products and services of ours, which may be of interest to you. If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at a later date. You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes or providing your information to others.

If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please email us at privacy@pm360online.com.

Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
PM360 takes reasonable steps to ensure that the personal data that it processes is: (i) relevant for the purposes for which it is to be used, (ii) reliable for its intended use, and (iii) accurate, complete and current.

Your choices
PM360 offers you the opportunity to choose or opt out of disclosure of your personal data to certain third parties or use your personal data for a purpose that is incompatible with the purpose for which the information was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. You may contact PM360 as indicated below regarding the company’s use or disclosure of your personal data.

PM360’s online Privacy Policy sets forth the circumstances in which PM360 may disclose personal data without offering you an opportunity to opt out, including:

  • to its subsidiary companies as necessary to perform services on its behalf;
  • to service providers, affiliates, agents and/or business partners PM360 has retained to perform services on its behalf;
  • when PM360 believes disclosure is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; or
  • in the event it sells or transfers all or a portion of its business or assets (including in the event of a divestiture, merger, consolidation, liquidation or bankruptcy). Should such a sale or transfer occur, PM360 will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use the personal data in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Special circumstances where we may disclose your information
Other than as set forth above, we may use and/or disclose your information, including your Personally Identifiable Information, in the following circumstances:

  • To enforce, and/or investigate violations of, our site Terms of Use and/or this Policy.
  • Although unlikely, your personal information may be disclosed to the governments, courts, law enforcement or regulatory agencies under a lawful order in a jurisdiction where you are located and/or where your personal information is stored and/or processed. You cannot opt out of disclosure of your personal information if required by lawful order.

Accountability for onward transfer of personal data
PM360 may share your personal data with third parties as indicated above and consistent with its online Privacy Policy. Except as permitted or required by applicable law, PM360 requires third parties controllers to whom it discloses your personal data to either (i) subscribe to the relevant Privacy Principles or (ii) contractually agree that data will only be processed for limited and specified purposes consistent with the consent given by the individual, that the recipient will provide the same level of protection and that the recipient will notify PM360 if it makes a determination that it can no longer meet those obligations.

How we protect your information
We use reasonable technological and physical safeguards to protect your personal information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.

Hyperlinks and other websites
Our Site may contain links to websites operated by others. This Privacy Policy only applies to this Site. Privacy policies for these third party sites and services may be different from our Privacy Policy. You access these third party sites and services at your own risk so when you link to other websites, you should read their privacy policies.

What do we do with your information when you terminate your relationship with us?
In general, we will only retain your information for the time necessary to realize our legitimate business purposes and to comply with the law. However, we may continue to store anonymous or anonymized information, such as website visits, without identifiers, in order to improve our services.

Your rights
You have the right to:

  • Withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal information at any time without penalty;
  • Access your personal information and have it corrected, amended or deleted;
  • Receive a copy of your personal data and transit such to others;
  • At any time, to object to our processing of your personal information which we will comply with unless we demonstrate a compelling legitimate grounds for processing such that overrides your rights; and
  • If you believe your personal information is inaccurate, unlawful, no longer necessary for our business purposes, or if you object to our processing of your personal information, you also have the right to instruct us to restrict the processing of your data pending our investigation and/or verification of your claim.

If you wish to raise a complaint and initiate and investigation on how we have handled your personal data, or request a copy of your personal information, please email us at privacy@pm360online.com. We may make a small charge for this service.
