The following provides an overview of how we protect your privacy during your visit.
What information do we gather?
Information on pearlarc.com is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly (for example, through our site's technology); and (2) directly (for example, when you provide information on various pages of pearlarc.com).
One example of information we collect indirectly is through our Internet access logs. When you access pearlarc.com, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs.
We also collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us. Throughout our site, we provide the opportunity to request for information, submit a query, register for an event or conference, order a white paper, or participate in an online survey. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.
How do we use this information?
We analyze it to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor pearlarc.com to make it more effective. We may also use data for other purposes, which we would describe to you at the point we collect the information.
We also use this information to send out EDMs (Electronic Direct Mails) to announce the launch of our new services, invitations to our events and other informational mails from our senior management. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings by choosing the unsubscribe option in the mail.
Will we share this with outside parties?
As a global organization, the data we collect may be transferred internationally throughout PearlArc Systems' worldwide organization. We will not sell any individual's information and will share it only with our employees and trusted partners. This site may contain links to other sites; PearlArc Systems is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
Do we give you access to your information?

What about data security?
We take appropriate steps to maintain the security of all your data on pearlarc.com.
