The “data subject” is the person to whom the information relates. The term “controller” as used in this Policy means the person or entity who is in the position to determine how and why the personal data is collected and processed. The term “processing” means all activities involving the personal data, including collecting, handling, updating, storing, deleting, sharing, accessing, using, transferring, and disposing of the data. “Client” means a business enterprise that is using PAI, INC’s products and services.
COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA
PAI, INC collects and processes personal data (a) for the purpose of meeting its performance obligations under an existing contract with its Clients or to enter into a new contract with Clients, (b) on the basis of consent, or (c) to meet our legitimate interests (such as for business operations, to meet legal obligations, for network security purposes, and for advertising, market research and direct marketing). The use of personal data collected through the publicly accessible portions of our Web Site shall be limited to the purposes set forth below. At times, PAI, INC may also collect your personal data such as contact information and interests from third-party marketing list suppliers in order to contact you for activities including direct marketing and for content syndication for interest-based advertising.
In the normal course of business activities, PAI, INC may process personal data as either a controller or a processor, as follows:
Data Controller: Where PAI, INC collects and processes personal data for the purpose of its day-to-day business operations, such as marketing and customer relationship management, it is acting as a data controller. This Policy applies solely to those instances in which PAI, INC is the data controller.
Data Processor: Where PAI, INC provides products and services for its Clients, it may process personal data on behalf of those Clients. In such cases, the Client is the data controller. This Policy does not apply to such processing. The processing of such personal data on behalf of Clients is, and will be, carried out by PAI, INC in accordance with the terms of the relevant contract or contracts between PAI, INC and the Client that provides the personal data to us for processing.
When you visit our Web Site and access information, you remain anonymous. However, when you engage in certain activities on this site, such as requesting product information or registering for a live event, PAI, INC may ask you to provide certain information about yourself such as your name, email address, phone number, or address. You are not required to provide your personal data, but if you decline, PAI, INC may not be able to process your request. We ask only for data that is adequate, relevant and not excessive for those purposes. When we ask you for personal data, we tell you the purposes for which we will process that data. Some of these purposes include the following:
We may contact you occasionally to inform you of new services we will be providing, or special offers, events or articles we think will be of interest to you.
In some instances, we may provide you with the opportunity to register for webinars co-hosted by select partners with whom we may share the personal data you provide us so they may send you offers that may be of interest to you. If you do not want us to use your personal data for these purposes, you may contact us at email@example.com
We may send you requested product information and promotional material.
We may use your personal data for marketing purposes and market research.

Such other countries may not have the same level of privacy protections as the EU.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.
We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve personalized marketing, analytics, and site functionality.
SHARING OF PERSONAL DATA
Personal data may occasionally be transferred to third parties who act for or on behalf of PAI, INC, for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which the data was originally collected or for purposes to which you have subsequently consented. For example, sometimes we may provide your personal data to a third party in order to handle communications on our behalf or to assist us in managing our software compliance or host our Web Site.
In certain situations, PAI, INC may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
We may share or transfer the information in our databases to comply with a legal requirement such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal or bankruptcy process, for the administration of justice, to protect your vital interests, and to take precautions against legal liability. In the event that PAI, INC is involved in a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web Site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal data, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal data.
Where appropriate, before disclosing personal data to a third party, we contractually require the third party to take adequate precautions to protect that data and we may also disclose your personal data to any other third party with your prior consent.
