  • In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise PES’s legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, PES may raise or waive any legal objection or right available.

If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, we may transfer personally identifiable information to the United States and process it there. By using the Site and/or Services you thereby consent to such transfer.

If you are a registered user with an account to use the Services, you have the ability to review and update your personal information online by logging into your account and clicking on Settings. You also may delete or disable your account at any time by visiting the “Settings” page for your account.

In addition, if certain information has already been provided to third parties as described in this Privacy Policy, retention of that information will be subject to those third parties’ policies.

 

How PES Protects Your Personal Information

When you provide personal information through the Site or Services, the information may be sent to servers located in the United States and other countries around the world. PES takes appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. PES wants you to feel confident using the Site and Services. However, no system can be completely secure.
