Like most website operators, The Pros Group collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Pros Group’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our website.
The Pros Group also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. The Pros Group only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifiable Information
Certain visitors to The Pros Group’s website choose to interact with The Pros Group in ways that require The Pros Group to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Pros Group gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, The Pros Group collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Pros Group. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The Pros Group may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. For instance, we may monitor the most popular pages on Google Analytics. The Pros Group may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifiable Information
The Pros Group discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information for them to process it on The Pros Group’s behalf or to provide services available at The Pros Group website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Pros Group website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Pros Group will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, The Pros Group discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Pros Group believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Pros Group, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a The Pros Group website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Pros Group and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via an email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Pros Group takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of The Pros Group or its business, may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
