Collection of Personal Information
Automated Information Collection
How We Use Your Information
We use the information collected automatically to obtain general statistics regarding the use of the Website and its specific web pages and to evaluate how our visitors use and navigate the Website. For example, we may calculate the number of people who use the Website, open our emails, and determine which pages are most popular. PQS uses the information you provide through the registration process to provide you with the information and services you request, to communicate with you on matters relating to the Website and your account, to provide necessary information to accrediting or certifying bodies and other of our business affiliates (but only in connection with the information and services you request from us) to provide you with information about related services and/or products. PQS may also use information about you to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, or enforce our rights. At times, PQS may review the information of multiple users to identify problems or to resolve disputes. Opt-Out Policy: If you do not wish to receive certain communications from PQS you may opt out by declining the service offered or informing us that you no longer wish to receive such communications. We will comply with your request unless such communications are necessary for the administration of your account, required by law, or necessary to protect our rights.
Sharing Third Parties
Technical and legal circumstances beyond our control could prevent PQS from ensuring that your information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described herein. For example, among other things, we may be required by law, regulation or court order to disclose information to government representatives or third parties under certain circumstances. If PQS is requested by law enforcement officials or judicial authorities to provide information on individuals, PQS may, without your consent, provide such information. In matters involving claims of personal or public safety or in litigation where the data is pertinent, PQS may use or disclose your personal information without your consent or court process. Unauthorized parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions despite any commercially reasonable security efforts by PQS. Even with such technology, no website is 100% secure. Further, corporate restructurings, sale of assets, merger, divestiture and other changes of control or financial status affecting the Website may require disclosure as an incidental result of a transfer of assets by operation of law or otherwise. Therefore, PQS does not promise, and you should not expect, that your private information shall remain private under all circumstances and you shall not hold PQS or its business associates liable for its failure to do so.
PQS uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of your personal information, but no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure, and PQS cannot guarantee that your information will never be accessed, used, or released in a manner that is inconsistent with this policy.

Transfer of Data, Outside Your Home Country
