3. How Information is Used
Personal Information may be disclosed to trusted persons working together with PGWP if they are involved in the completion, delivery or customer support of the services offered through the Sites. Examples include third parties who assist in hosting our web servers (e.g., Amazon Web Services), analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, sales tracking and providing customer service. We also may share aggregated anonymous information about visitors to the Sites with third parties so that they can understand the kinds of visitors to the Sites and how those visitors use the Sites.
If you are seeking to do work for particular employers, PGWP also provides your information and documentation (e.g., Personal Information, credentials and resumes) to prospective employers and/or their agents. PGWP may also provide certain of your personal information and/or your resume to prospective employers utilizing the Sites and have permission to review such information and resumes. Personal Information received by employers will be processed in accordance with these terms and those of the relevant employer. Employer agrees to comply with (and require compliance by all employer personnel and agents who have access to the Personal Information) all their responsibilities under applicable data protection laws and regulations with respect to the collection, processing and storage of Personal Information.
By logging into the Sites, or expressly opting in when presented with choices, you have consented for us to use your information, subject to local law, in at least the following ways: to create a profile for you based on information that you have provided to us; to contact you about any Sites’ updates, informational and service-related communications, including important security updates; to provide you additional communications, information, and promotions such as newsletters; to provide the services requested by you or to fulfill the purpose for which you provide it; in other ways we may describe when you provide the information or later consent; to enable you to provide feedback, to contact us and for us to respond to you; and to generate internal reports about the use of our Sites.
We disclose information if legally required to do so or if requested to do so by a governmental entity. Because PGWP is a US entity and information collected on our Sites is stored in whole or in part in the United States, the information will be transferred to the United States and become subject to U.S. law. By using the Sites, you consent to this transfer.
We may disclose and transfer such information to a third party who acquires all or a substantial portion of PGWP’s business, whether such acquisition is by way of merger, consolidation or purchase of all or a substantial portion of our assets. In addition, in the event PGWP becomes the subject of an insolvency proceeding, whether voluntary or involuntary, PGWP or its liquidator, administrator, receiver or administrative receiver may sell, license or otherwise dispose of such information in a transaction approved by the court.
We will not disclose such information to third parties to market their products or services to you.
4. Posting Personal Information to Public Areas of the Sites
Except as otherwise provided herein, we do not display Personal Information without your permission. However, if you post any Personal Information in public areas of the Sites, such as in online forums or chat rooms, such information may be collected and used by others over whom PGWP has no control. We cannot control the use made by third parties of information you post or otherwise make available in public areas of the Sites.
You may have access to, review, correct, update, restrict the use of, change or delete your account profile information or other Personal Information with PGWP at any time. Such steps may be done by logging into the Sites or customer portal and following the instructions therein, if available, or by contacting PGWP at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Before providing you with a copy of your Personal Information or correcting, updating or deleting such information, we reserve the right to verify and authenticate your identity and the Personal Information to which you have requested access.
If you delete or close your account or account profile information with PGWP altogether, PGWP may retain an archival copy which is not accessible by you or third parties on the Internet. The archival copy is retained only for as long as PGWP reasonably considers necessary for audit and record purposes. We will retain logs, demographic, indirect, and statistical information about you and keep an archival copy of this information in an anonymous form. We will also retain aggregate anonymized information. If your Personal Information was previously accessed by others using our Sites, we are not able to delete the information or copies thereof from their systems.
6. How Long We Keep Personal Information
7. Other Important Information
You are responsible for ensuring that your log-in credentials (your user name and password) are kept confidential. PGWP has implemented technical and organizational measures designed to secure Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. Notwithstanding such measures, the Internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use Personal Information for improper purposes. Please consider this prior to submitting Personal Information to us via the Sites.
In addition, care should be taken when providing sensitive Personal Information (e.g., social security information, driver license numbers and dates of birth) with prospective employers.
