2 HOW PERSONAL INFORMATION IS COLLECTED. When you communicate with us via our Site, Pica collects your Personal Information only if you provide it to Pica voluntarily. Portions of the Site may allow you to provide Pica with Personal Information in order to contact us or to submit a resume in response to a job opening posted on our Site.
3 UNSECURED EMAIL WARNING. Please note that any information you send to us via email is sent via an unsecured email link. Due to the nature of the Internet, there is a possibility that unsecured (unencrypted) email could be intercepted and read by third parties. Pica assumes no responsibility for interception of confidential information you send in an unsecured (unencrypted) email message.
4 INFORMATION WE TRACK. Similar to many websites, Pica gathers certain Anonymous Information automatically and stores it in web server log files. “Anonymous Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individual persons. This information includes internet protocol addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), site entry/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. Pica uses this information to improve our Site, analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, and gather aggregate information about the Site user base as a whole from which individual identities have been removed.
5 USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION. The Personal Information Pica gathers from you may be used for the following purposes: (i) to provide information, materials, or services that you have requested; and (ii) to provide you with information and materials about our services. Pica does not collect or maintain Personal Information for resale purposes, or share Personal Information with any other company or organization except as specifically disclosed herein. If you send a resume in response to a job opening posted on our Site, we will retain your Personal Information only for the purpose of filling the job opening and will not use it for any other purpose.
6 USE OF ANONYMOUS INFORMATION. Pica may use Anonymous Information for any purpose in its discretion and to disclose such Anonymous Information to third parties.
7 DISLCOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
B Sharing Personal Information in the event of Acquisition. If Pica is acquired, merges with another entity or sells portions of its assets, our databases (which may contain your online personal information) will be among transferred assets. You will be notified via the Site of any such change in ownership or control of your Personal Information.
8 CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE. You should be aware that this Site is not intended for, or designed to attract, children under the age of 13 and as such, Pica does not intentionally gather Personal Information about visitors who are under the age of 13.
10 SECURITY. Pica uses reasonable measures to maintain the security of your Personal Information. However, no company, including Pica, can fully eliminate security risks associated with the transmission of Personal Information through online transactions, and you do so at your own risk.
12 NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits customers who are California residents and who have provided Pica with “personal information” (as that term is defined in Section 1798.83) to request certain information about the disclosure of that information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident with questions regarding this, please contact Pica at PO Box 225, Belfast, ME 04915
