Precipeace may share your personal information within the Precipeace corporate organization, and may transfer the information to countries in the world where Precipeace conducts business. Some countries may provide less legal protection for customer personal information.
(b) Mergers and Acquisitions. Circumstances may arise where for business reasons, Precipeace decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize its businesses in the United States or some other country. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of PII to prospective or actual purchasers, and/or receiving such information from sellers.

5. Use of Computer Tracking Technologies
(a) No Tracking of Personal Information. Precipeace’s website is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. Through website access logs, Precipeace does collect clickstream data and HTTP protocol elements, which generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff for research and development, user analysis and business decision-making, all of which provides better services to the public. The statistics garnered, which contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information, may also be provided to third parties.
(c) Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. Precipeace may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the Precipeace website in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit, or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on Precipeace’s website; website and system administration; user analysis; and business decision-making. Such information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.” Precipeace or its contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.
(d) Collection of Personal Information. Precipeace collects PII from customers during a transaction. Precipeace may extract some PII about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level (not at an individual level) to help Precipeace understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.
(e) Online Tracking. Online tracking technology enables website operators to collect personal information about consumers as they move across websites and other online services. Most browsers incorporate “do not track” (DNT) features in their privacy settings. When enabled, a DNT signal or request informs a website operator that the visitor does not wish to be tracked online. The website is currently designed only for tracking movement within the Website. Precipeace does not honor DNT requests, and does not treat visitors who make DNT requests differently from visitors who do not make DNT requests. Precipeace also does not differentiate between visitors who make DNT requests and visitors who do not make such requests, when it comes to the collection or usage of personal information. There are no third parties that conduct online tracking on the Website.
6. Information Security
(a) Commitment to Online Security. Precipeace employs physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. Billing and payment data is encrypted whenever transmitted or received online. Personal information is accessible only by staff designated to handle online requests or complaints.
(b) No Liability for Acts of Third Parties. Precipeace will exercise all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of customer personal information. However, transmissions protected by industry standard security technology and implemented by human beings cannot be made absolutely secure. Consequently, Precipeace shall not be liable for unauthorized disclosure of personal information due to no fault of Precipeace including, but not limited to, errors in transmission and unauthorized acts of Precipeace staff and/or third parties.
