Privacy Policy


Your privacy is important to PASC. This statement discloses the information practices for PASC websites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared. In general, you can visit PASC on the Internet without telling us who you are and without giving any personal information about yourself. There are times, however, when we or our partners may need information from you. You may choose to give us personal information in a variety of situations. For example, your name and address or e-mail id, so that we can correspond with you, to process an order, or to provide you with a subscription. You may give us your credit card details to buy something from us or a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at PASC that you wish to be considered for. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes. If you give us personal information about somebody else, such as a spouse or work colleague, we will assume that you have their permission to do so.


The following paragraphs describe in more detail how PASC may use your personal information and with whom we may share it. Depending on the type of PASC website you are visiting, one or more of the paragraphs may apply. For example, if you order a product from a PASC website, your information will be handled as described in such paragraphs as Fulfilling Your Transaction Request and Marketing Use.


If you request something from a PASC website, for example, a product or service, a callback, or specific marketing materials, we will use the information you provide to fulfill your request. To help us do this, we may share information, with others, for instance, other parts of PASC, PASC Business Partners, financial institutions, shipping companies, postal or government authorities (for example, Customs authorities) involved in the fulfilment. In connection with a transaction we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.


In connection with a job application or inquiry, whether advertised on a PASC website or otherwise, you may provide us with information about yourself, such as a resume or curriculum vitae. We may use this information throughout PASC and its related entities for the purpose of employment consideration or your inquiry. Except where you tell us not to, we will keep the information for future consideration.


If you represent a PASC supplier, you may visit a PASC website intended specifically for use by PASC suppliers. We may use the information provided on that site in connection with entering into or performing a transaction with you. For example, this may include sharing information with other parts of PASC, PASC Business Partners, customers, shipping companies, financial institutions, postal or government authorities involved in fulfilment. It may also be used to administer and develop our relationship with you, the supplier you represent and/or other PASC suppliers generally.


If you participate in a PASC discussion forum or chat room, you should be aware that the information you provide there will be made broadly available to others, potentially inside or outside PASC, who have access to that discussion forum or chat room. Also, please recognise that individual forums and chat rooms may have additional rules and conditions. Each participant’s opinion on a forum or chat room is his or her own and should not be considered as reflecting the opinion of PASC.


In some cases, specific PASC websites may contain other notices about their use and the information practices applicable to those sites.


Certain Web transactions may also involve you calling us or our calling you. Please be aware that it is our general practice to monitor and in some cases record such calls for staff training or quality assurance purposes.


In some cases, specific PASC websites may contain other notices about their use and the information practices applicable to those sites.


On occasion, we may personalise and customise websites for certain visitors. If you visit one of these sites, you may find it customised with references to products and/or services that we believe may be of interest to you, based on your previous interactions with PASC and information you have provided to us. While you are visiting these websites, we may collect information about your visit to better tailor the site to your interests. An invitation to visit one of these websites is usually presented as a personalised URL in an e-mail, a notice on a website registration page, or as a response to you logging on to a certain website.


This privacy statement was last updated on 30 April 2016. A notice will be posted on our website home page for 30 days whenever this privacy statement is changed in a material way.
