Personal information – Personal information is only collected with your consent when you provide it to us. This would include your name and email you submitted so that you could receive communication from us on the subject of Business Services.
Emails include delivery of specific digital information you have requested. Fulfillment of your requested order may include related follow-up communication or informational updates to the order.
Non-personal information – The website collects non-personal information such as a domain name and IP address. These reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you accessed the website. This information is used for internal purposes to maintain, evaluate and improve the service of PSE website.
Security
The security of your information is protected. When you enter personal or financial information on a PSE form, it is encrypted with secure socket layer technology (SSL). Although we follow accepted industry standards to protect your personal information, no method of transmission or storage over the Internet is 100% secure. It is up to you to be careful where you submit your personal information.

Disclosure or sharing of information to outside third parties
PSE will not share, sell or give away the information we collect to outside parties for any marketing purposes whatsoever. This includes third parties who may promote PSE services as our affiliates.
PSE may share Personal Data within PSE to fulfill its obligations to you and operate its business consistent with this Privacy Policy and applicable data protection law. In addition to what is already stated in this Privacy Policy, we will also share your Personal Data with third parties in the following situations and for the following purposes:
PSE Affiliates, Vendors and Suppliers. PSE works with affiliated third parties, vendors, distributors, and suppliers. We will provide Personal Data to them to the extent it is necessary for them to provide their products and services to us and to you.
Mergers and Acquisitions. If PSE should ever merge with another company, or if PSE should decide to buy, sell, or reorganize some part or all of its business, PSE may be required to transfer your Personal Data and in such events your Personal Data may be used or transferred in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as permitted by law.
As Required by Law and Other Extraordinary Disclosures. PSE may be required to disclose your Personal Data if it: (i) believes in its sole judgment that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process (such as a court order, subpoena, search warrant, etc.) or other legal requirements of any governmental authority, (ii) would potentially mitigate our liability in an actual or potential lawsuit, (iii) is otherwise necessary to protect our rights or property, or (iv) is necessary to protect the legal rights or property of others.
Privacy when you access third-party websites
