The primary purpose of PBFI is to provide an informational resource for partners, customers, employees and other interested parties. We want you to feel secure when visiting our site and we are committed to maintaining your privacy.
Information collected through feedback from you may include contact information, consisting of name and e-mail address or other information you may desire to provide such as resumes and business alliance related data. Information so collected is used solely for the purpose of responding to your request. You may also incidentally submit to us other sensitive personal data -- like political opinions, opinions related to specific employees, or open business proposals. Such unsolicited information is considered non-confidential and nonproprietary by our legal statement. In addition, you may submit your resume to us via email. Any resume so received by us will be held in confidence and used only for the purpose of considering you for employment or such other purpose as requested by you. Such information is not shared with third parties unless specifically requested or authorized by you. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and administer our Web site, to analyze trends, to track user movement and use, and to gather broad demographic information. Such data is not linked to any of your personally identifiable information.
PBFI may link to other outside Web sites but PBFI is not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. You should check their privacy policies (if available) before submitting any personal information since the privacy practices of these other sites may be different from that of ours. You should be aware that any personal information collected on these other sites is collected by that third party website and is governed by that site's policy.
Use of the site may require registration. Data submitted to the site may be transferred within PBFI, including to its subsidiaries, strictly for fulfilling or expediting your request. Data submitted to this site will not be shared or sold to any outside parties, unless specifically requested by you; the only exceptions to this being in response to a court order or other legal obligation.
We do not generally seek to collect sensitive personal data through this site. If we do seek to collect such data, we will ask you to consent to our proposed uses of the data. We may also collect some sensitive personal data incidentally. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data subject to applicable law as described in this Privacy Statement. The references to "sensitive personal data" are to the various categories of personal data identified by foreign data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent. These categories comprise personal identity numbers, personal data about personality and private life, racial or ethnic origin, nationality, political opinions, membership of political parties or movements, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, membership of a trade union or profession or trade association, physical or mental health, genetic code, addictions, sexual life, property matters or criminal record (including information about suspected criminal activities).
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of your data on PBFI. You should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Any PBFI employee who may have access to such information is aware of our Privacy and Security Policy through direct notification and training. Access to such information is limited to those required to fulfill the applicable user request and security procedures in place include password protection and, as appropriate, alphanumeric passwords, physical protection or encryption.
In the event of any material changes to this Privacy and Security Policy which may impact the practices described on this statement will be prominently posted on this site. In no event will any such changes to this policy apply with respect to data previously collected through this site. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that which was stated at the time it was collected, we will notify you by e-mail, and you will be given a choice to control your personally identifiable information being transferred. If you have any questions now or during your visit, please contact us via our webmaster. PBFI is an equal opportunity employer and values the diversity of its people.
