c) Cookies and Use of Cookie Data
Like many sites on the Internet, when you visit the Site, PES may assign your computer one or more cookies to facilitate access to the Site and to personalize your online experience. Through the use of a cookie, PES also may automatically collect information about your online activity on the Site, such as the web pages you visit, the time and date of your visits, and the links you click on the Site.

In addition, please be aware that other parties may also place their own cookies on or through the Site, and may collect or solicit personal information from you. Other cookies may reflect de-identified demographic or other data linked to the registration data you have submitted to PES in hashed, non-human readable form. No personally identifiable information is contained in these cookies.
d) Information Collected by Third Parties
PES may allow third parties, advertising companies, and ad networks to display advertisements on the Site and/or Services. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements. PES does not provide any personal information to these third parties.

With Whom PES Shares Your Information
PES does not share your personal information with others except as indicated below or when PES informs you and gives you an opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared. PES may share personal information with:
a) Service Providers: PES may share your personal information, which may include your name and email address, with third parties that perform certain services on PES’s behalf.

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.

How You Can Access Your Information
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. Therefore, although PES takes steps to secure your information, PES does not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information will always remain secure.
PES restricts the use of the Site and Services to individuals age 13 and above. PES does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.
