Passive Information Collection:  Cookies and Similar Technology 

PI also may compile statistical results concerning the usage of the Site. PI uses this information to prepare collective profiles of visitors’ activities for management and internal use. This information allows PI to monitor its utilization and continuously improve its quality. Examples of this information would include, but not be limited to, the number of visitors to the Site, or to sections or pages within the Site, patterns of traffic flowing through the Site, length of time spent on the Site, or in sections or pages of the Site, the other sites that refer visitors to the Site, the pages of the Site that visitors frequently use as entry and exit points, utilization of the browser and operating systems and versions used by visitors to the Site, etc.

In order to compile this information, PI may collect and store your IP address, your operating system version, your browser version, the pages you visit within the Site, the length of time you spend on pages within the Site, the site from which you linked to ours, search terms you used in search engines which resulted in you linking to the Site, etc. While all of this information can be associated with the IP address your computer had while you visited the Site, it will not be associated with you as an individual, or associated with any other information you may submit through the Site, or that Purolator  may store about you for any other purposes.

We and our service providers may also use “cookies” and similar technologies on the Site. Cookies are data that a web server transfers to an individual’s computer for record keeping purposes. We use cookies and other technologies to better serve you with more tailored information and facilitate your ongoing access to and use of the Site. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline cookies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting the transfer of a particular cookie, or cookies from a particular website, to your computer.  However, if you decline cookies, the Site may not function properly for you.  To learn more about cookies, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.

Do Not Track.

 “Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that you can set in your Internet search browser that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain browsing information about you. However, because our Site is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user’s computer, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track requests. 

 Access and Correction  

You may access, review, correct, amend, change, and/or delete some of the personal information collected about you and stored on the Site by logging into the Site and choosing to update your information. Upon your request, we will deactivate or remove your personal information from our active databases, although some information may be retained as permitted or required by law. Please use the contact information listed below for your requests.

Site Security and Data Integrity 

We take reasonable precautions to safeguard the personal information transmitted between visitors and the Site and the personal information stored on our servers. Unfortunately, no method of accessing, using, transmitting or storing data can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. It is your sole responsibility to use the appropriate level of care whenever communicating with us. For example, when you access the client portal from this Site or your job applicant profile from the Careers site, you will do so through a login and password that you have created and is unique to you. For maximum security, you should never share your login and password with anyone else and you should always logout of our system and close your open Internet browser window to finish your session completely.

If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), you must immediately notify us using the contact information listed below.

We use reasonable efforts to maintain the accuracy and integrity of personal information and to update it as appropriate. PI has implemented physical and technical safeguards to protect personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alternation, or destruction. For example, electronically stored personal information is stored on a secure network with firewall protection, and access to PI’s electronic information systems requires user authentication via password or similar means. PI also employs access restrictions, limiting the scope of employees who have access to Personal Information.

 

PI hereby disclaims, as far as permitted by local laws, any liability for itself and its affiliated companies and contractors for any of your Personal Information sent to our Site and which is lost, misused, illegally accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed or not integrally or timely delivered to our Site. 

If you are a California resident, please read the following:

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your personal information by certain members of PI to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Requests may be made one time per calendar year. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2018 will receive information regarding 2017 sharing activities). You may submit your request using the contact information at the end of this Notice.
