Within Corporate Organization. PNA is a multinational organization, with legal entities, business processes, management structures, and technical systems that cross borders. PNA may share your personal information within the PNA corporate organization, and may transfer the information to countries in the world where PNA conducts business. Some countries may provide less legal protection for customer personal information. In such countries PNA will still handle customer personal information in the manner described herein.

In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event PNA is acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.

Use of Computer Tracking Technologies.
No Tracking of Personal Information. PNA’s Web site(s) are not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. Our site logs do generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff to provide better services to the public and may also be provided to others, but, again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
Use of Web Beacon Technologies. PNA may also use Web beacon or other technologies to better tailor its Web site(s) to provide better customer service. If these technologies are in use, when a visitor accesses these pages of the Web site, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by PNA or by its suppliers. Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If customer does not want cookie information to be associated with customer’s visits to these pages, customer can set its browser to turn off cookies; however, Web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.
Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. PNA may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the PNA Web site(s) in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit, or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on PNA Web site(s); Web site and system administration; user analysis; and business decision making. Such information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.” PNA or its contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.
Collection of Personal Information. PNA collects personal identifying information from customer during a transaction. PNA may extract some personally identifying information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level (not at an individual level) to help PNA understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.
Commitment to Online Security. PNA intends to protect customer personal information and to maintain its quality. To achieve information security and quality, PNA implements appropriate measures and processes, such as using encryption when transmitting certain sensitive information.
No Liability for Acts of Third Parties. PNA will exercise all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of customer personal information. However, transmissions protected by industry standard security technology and implemented by human beings cannot be made absolutely secure. Consequently, PNA shall not be liable for unauthorized disclosure of personal information due to no fault of PNA including, but not limited to, errors in transmission and unauthorized acts of PNA staff and third parties.
Opt-Out Right. Customer has the right at any time to cease permitting personal information to be collected, used or disclosed by PNA and/or by any third parties with whom PNA has shared and/or transferred such personal information.
