We adhere to the requirements of the law and our professional standards, and as we conduct our business operations, we frequently gather and use personal information. We seek consent to use this information when it is collected and recognize your expectation that it will be carefully protected. Our privacy practices require that we only use personal information outside of the original purpose for which it is collected after obtaining appropriate consent.
Personal information is defined as any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual, including information about age, income, opinions or beliefs, activities, habits, home location and family. However, business contact and other information about individuals that is available in the public domain, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers published in directories, are not considered personal information. Public information is not subject to privacy legislation and therefore is excluded from this policy and is not subject to the same protections as is the case with personal information. However, we do not disclose personal information about our staff, clients, members, vendors and partners without consent.
We follow these policies when collecting, maintaining and using personal information:
Collection and use of personal information
We obtain personal information about you only if you choose to provide it, such as contact information to register for certain services and/or events. In some cases, you may have previously provided your personal information to PrimeGlobal (if, for example, you are a former employee). If you choose to register for PrimeGlobal information through a third party single sign-in service (e.g., LinkedIn, Google, or Twitter), we may collect any information or content needed for the registration that you permit the social media provider to share with us, such as your name and email address. Other information we collect may depend on the privacy settings you establish with your social media provider, so please review the privacy statement or policy of the applicable service.
By registering and/or submitting personal information to PrimeGlobal, you are also agreeing to the use of this information in accordance with this Policy. Your personal information is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law or professional standards. For example, if you register on our web site and provide information about your preferences, we will use this information to personalize your user experience. If you send us a resume to apply online for a position with PrimeGlobal, we may use the information that you provide to match you with available PrimeGlobal job opportunities. By registering for conferences, we will obtain your permission to use your likeness in a photograph, video, or other digital media (“photo”) in any and all company publications, including web-based publications, without payment or other consideration. Additional information obtained with your consent, such as dietary restrictions and medical conditions, will be provided to vendors (hotels, restaurants, or venues utilized for PrimeGlobal events) solely for the protection of your personal choice, well-being and overall health, and safety.
Sensitive Personal Information
PrimeGlobal generally collects only the personal information required to fulfil your request. If additional information is required, you will be notified of this at the point of collection. PrimeGlobal only collects "sensitive" personal information (i.e. personal information regarding a person's race, ethnicity, political beliefs, trade union membership, religious or similar beliefs, physical or mental health, sexual life or criminal record) if you voluntarily provide it to us, and only where it is required for a specific purpose, and is permitted to be collected by law or professional standards.
Please do not provide sensitive personal information to PrimeGlobal, unless you consent to our use of that information for its legitimate business purposes and consent to the transfer and storage of the information to and in PrimeGlobal databases. If you question the necessity of providing sensitive information for any particular purpose, please contact us at email@example.com.
Your consent is required for the collection and proposed use of personal information when information is collected. Consent can be either explicit or implied and can be provided directly to us by you or your authorized representative (such as you firm’s Managing Partner/Partner-In-Charge or Contact Partner). We require your explicit consent in writing or electronically for the use of your personal information.
This website uses Google Analytics to track performance. For example, we may track visitor sessions and referral sources to our sites. We use this data to understand site performance to serve you better. We may also track the performance of promotional links to our site. No personal information is passed to Google Analytics. Note that Google Analytics stores its data within the United States of America and is therefore subject to US laws. Those wishing to opt out of Google Analytics data collection should use the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
PrimeGlobal understands the importance of protecting children's privacy, especially in an online environment. Our sites are not intentionally designed for, or directed at, anyone under the age of 18, and our policy is never to knowingly collect or maintain children’s information except where required as part of an engagement to provide professional services.
Sharing and transfer of Personal Information
In some instances, PrimeGlobal may share your personal information with outside companies, publications, service providers or vendors. This may include the transfer of this information across geographical borders to other PrimeGlobal member firms or third parties working with us or on our behalf to help fulfill your requests. PrimeGlobal may also store personal information in other legal jurisdictions. By providing personal information online to us, you are consenting to the transfer and/or storage of your personal information in this manner. PrimeGlobal does not sell personal information to any third parties, nor will PrimeGlobal transfer your personal information to any third parties for their own direct marketing use.
Compliance with laws and regulations
PrimeGlobal may be required to disclose personal information in response to requests of government or law enforcement agencies or where disclosure is required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. These disclosures may also be needed for data privacy or security audits and/or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat.
You are not required to submit any personal information to PrimeGlobal online, but certain personal information may be required for you to receive additional information about our services and events. PrimeGlobal may also ask for your permission for certain uses of your personal information, and you can agree to or decline those uses. If you opt-in for particular services or to receive communications from us, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. Where you unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will try to remove your information promptly, but may require additional information to process your request.
Personal information will be maintained as completely, accurately and up-to-date as possible. You are encouraged to review, correct and update personal information. Under most circumstances you have the right to reasonable access to your personal information to correct any inaccuracies. You can also make a request to update or remove information about you by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make all reasonable and practical efforts to comply with your request, so long as it is consistent with applicable law and professional standards.
PrimeGlobal has reasonable security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorized loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Appropriate physical and electronic measures are also used to help ensure that personal information is secure. To the best of our ability, access to your personal information is limited to those who require the information to fulfil their job responsibilities. Those individuals who have access to the data are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information. However, despite our best efforts, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats.
Retention of personal information
Personal information will not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those for which it has been collected, except with your consent or as required by law. We do not share personal information with unaffiliated third parties, except where necessary for legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, and/or as required and permitted by law or professional standards. We also make reasonable efforts only to retain personal information so long as it is necessary to comply with your request or you ask that the information be deleted.
Changes to this policy
PrimeGlobal may modify this Policy from time to time to advise of changes to our current privacy policies and practices. When changes are made to this Policy, the date of the update will be provided on this site, so we encourage you to review our site periodically for changes.
