In addition, you may voluntarily provide us with personal information by registering for some of our events (e.g. webcasts, seminars and conferences) or to receive media alerts through our Sites, or through the registration processes on some of our Sites. If you choose to apply for job openings through our Sites, we may collect additional information such as name, address and other contact information, work and educational experience, licenses and certifications and other personal information. We do not seek sensitive personal information on our Sites except where we are required to do so as part of the recruitment process. Your decision to submit such information is entirely voluntary. We may use the personal information you submit through the Site to respond to your requests (e.g. send you information about PMSC services or events), send you administrative information or notices, send you information about our services, and for our internal business purposes. If you apply for job openings through our Sites, we may use this information to process and evaluate your application for employment and to communicate with you about employment opportunities.

If we elect to make an offer of employment, this information may become part of the employee file and may be used for other employment and work-related purposes.

- COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
- DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Some Web browsers incorporate a “do-not-track” or similar feature that signals to Web sites with which the browser communicates that a visitor does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. As of the Effective Date of this policy, not all browsers offer a “do-not-track” option and “do-not-track” signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, PMSC does not currently respond to “do-not-track” signals.
- DISCLOSURES AND TRANSFERS
PMSC will not disclose an individual’s personal information to third parties, except as set forth in this Privacy Statement, when we have the individual’s permission to make the disclosure, or as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the information was submitted. We also may use or disclose personal information as we believe to be necessary or appropriate (a) under applicable law (including to meet a national security or law enforcement requirement), (b) to comply with legal process or professional standards, (c) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property and/or those of our affiliates or clients; or (d) in a merger, acquisition or asset sale. DMS may use third-party service providers to provide administrative or operational support to DMS, or to provide engagement team resource services. Such entities may be located within or outside the United States. We require all such service providers to protect the information we entrust to them and to use such information only as necessary to provide services to us. Additionally, DMS may disclose and transfer personal information to service providers, and this transfer may result in data passing from one jurisdiction to another, including to and from the United States of America. Because privacy laws vary from one jurisdiction to another, personal information may be transferred to a jurisdiction where the laws may differ from the laws in the jurisdiction in which the information originated.
- THIRD-PARTY SITES
This Privacy Statement does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information, or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any Web site or service to which the Site links. The inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates.
- DATA SECURITY
The security of your personal information is important to us. We seek to use reasonable physical (e.g. key card office entry, locking doors), technical (e.g. password protection, network firewalls, laptop encryption, authentication mechanisms), and administrative safeguards (e.g. confidentiality agreements, training, procedures that limit access to and use of data) to protect the information we process. However, no method of transferring data over the Internet or storing electronic data is completely secure. Therefore, while we strive to use reasonable and appropriate means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee absolute security.
- DATA INTEGRITY
We process personal information only in ways compatible with the purpose for which it was collected, as subsequently authorized by the individual, or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. To the extent necessary for such purposes, we take reasonable steps to make sure that personal information is accurate, complete, current, and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use.
- ACCESS AND CORRECTION
If an individual becomes aware that information we maintain about that individual is inaccurate, or if an individual would like to update or review his or her information, the individual may contact us using the contact information below. We will take reasonable steps to permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate. We may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or inappropriate under the circumstances. All requests to access or change personal information will be handled in accordance with applicable legal requirements. Visitors who choose to register with this Site may correct and update their user profiles or unsubscribe from certain communications at any time. Visitors who would like to access or change their profiles or would like to request a copy of their personal information should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- ENFORCEMENT AND DISPUTE RESOLUTIONS
We will investigate and attempt to resolve complaints and disputes regarding our use and disclosure of personal information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

- MERGER, CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP, AND OTHER BUSINESS TRANSITIONS
In the event PMSC goes through a business transition, such as a merger, or the acquisition or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personal information may be among the assets transferred.
