Peoplelink is committed to maintaining the privacy of users who access our Web site (the "Site"). This Privacy Policy Statement (the "Privacy Policy") explains the types of information we gather and what we do with it. By using the Site, you agree to the terms and policies described in this Privacy Policy.

  1. Information Collected on the Site

    Peoplelink does not request or require any information from anonymous visitors to the Site. We collect personal information only from those users who have registered on the Site ("Registered Users") and who wish to purchase or avail the company products and services on the Site. Personal information means information about an identifiable individual and may include your name, address, telephone, e-mail address, financial information, such as a credit card number and shipping address. Personal information does not include business contact information (e.g. office address, telephone number) in those jurisdictions which do not recognize such information as being personal information. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any User id which may be assigned to you, as well as any account number, account name, or passwords, if applicable, for the services you utilize through the Site.

    Peoplelink needs the information Registered Users supply for (a) personal identification, (b) to allow us to contact you for periodically promos about new products and special offers as requested by you, such as customer service or information about a special offers and promos of the new products, (c) to make improvements to materials or products offered on the Site and to the Site in general, and (d) to enable Registered Users to access the functionalities described on the Site, including without limitation, purchasing of company products, and obtaining other user-specific information. Your e-mail address is collected to send you an e-mail message confirming your new member registration as well as confirmations for other services you transact with Peoplelink. In addition, we may use such information (i) for demographic profiling, ad targeting, statistical analysis, to conduct surveys and similar marketing activities; (ii) to investigate violations of either its Privacy Policy or its "Terms of Use"; and (iii) to notify Registered Users about important changes to the Site or promotions or opportunities You may always decline to receive these messages by following the process to opt out as described below or as described within a particular message.

    We will deactivate accounts of Registered Users that have been inactive for an extended period of time. Registered Users may access and change their information at any time via the Site as described in Section 7 below.

  2. Use of Cookies and log Files

    The Site does not use persistent or stored cookies; however, it does use temporary or per-session cookies. Temporary or per-session cookies act as a randomly generated session ID; they last only while the Registered User is logged onto the Web site, and are cancelled at the end of the session (i.e., the Registered User logs out of the Site or closes their Web browser program). The Site uses temporary cookies for security purposes. Each time a Registered User logs onto the Site, the Site server generates a temporary session ID, which it associates with the user's login name, password and computer during that particular session. This allows the Registered User to move from page to page in the Site during a specific session, without having to re-enter the user login name and/or password. The temporary cookie allows the Site server to continuously verify that the user is a permitted user as the user moves from page to page during a specific session. When the Registered User logs out of the Site, the temporary session ID is cancelled, and is removed from the temporary memory of the user's computer; and the association in the Site server between the temporary session ID and the specific user login name and password is also terminated.

    We also use log files for anonymous site usage analysis. A "log file" is a data file that records a Registered User's activity while using the Site.
