It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.
    • Please take the time to read this Notice carefully. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at privacy@pes.eu

  2. What are cookies?
    • Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. 
    • Cookies have many different features, such as allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
    • Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, PES) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies".  Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics).  The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites. 

  3. How long do cookies last
    Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are 'session cookies', which means they only exist when your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser or quit the app. Other cookies are 'persistent cookies', meaning they survive after your browser or app is closed and can be used by websites or apps to recognize your computer when you re-open your browser or app later. The length of the cookies used on our Website is explained in more detail in the table below.

  4. Why do we use cookies?

Our website uses cookies, as almost all websites do, to help provide you with the best experience we can.

5. What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

  1. Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs").  These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them.  This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns.  In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

6. How can I control cookies?

  • You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.
  • You can set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our Website though your access to some functionality and areas of our Website may be restricted As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser's help menu for more information or check the links below:

4. How we protect your privacy

  • We will process Personal Data in accordance with this Notice, as follows
    • Fairness: We will process Personal Data fairly. This means that we are transparent about how we process Personal Data and that we will process it in accordance with applicable law.
    • Purpose limitation: We will process Personal Data for specified and lawful purposes, and will not process it in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes.
    • Proportionality: We will process Personal Data in a way that is proportionate to the purposes which the processing is intended to achieve.
    • Data accuracy: We take appropriate measures to ensure that the Personal Data that we hold about you is accurate, complete and, where necessary, kept up to date. However, it is also your responsibility to ensure that your Personal Data is kept as accurate, complete and current as possible by informing PES us promptly of any changes or errors. You should notify us of any changes to the Personal Data that we hold about you (e.g. a change of address).
    • Data security: We use appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the Personal Data that we collect and process about you. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your Personal Data.
    • Data processors: We may engage third parties to process Personal Data for and on behalf of PES. We require such data processors to process Personal Data and act strictly on our instructions and to take appropriate steps to ensure that Personal Data remains protected.
    • International data transfers: Your Personal Data may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country and, in some cases, may not be as protective. Specifically, our servers are located in the EU and the US, and our third party service providers also operate in the EU and the US. This means that when we collect your Personal Data we may process it in any of these countries. However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your Personal Data will remain protected in accordance with this Notice. These include implementing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of Personal Data with our third party service providers and partners.

    • Data Retention: We retain Personal Data we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Data, we will either delete or anonymise it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Data has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
