Although our ability to provide service requires that we collect personal information about our customers, we take measures to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of that information.
Online privacy concerns focus on the protection of “customer identifiable” information that an individual or other customer reasonably expects to be kept private. As the term suggests, “customer identifiable” information is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, including, for example, a customer’s name, address, or telephone number, e-mail address, and information about online activities that are directly linked to them.
What information do we collect and how do we use it?
posiusa.com does collect information about you at different times. Instances include
Mandatory personal information needed for us to provide a service to you
To first join posiusa.com, information such as your name, contact details, and email is requested. We will not disclose this personal information unless we have received your express consent to do so.
Non-personally identifiable (specific or aggregated) information, to improve our services
Apart from this mandatory information we need to provide our service to you, there may be data (that does not personally identify you) collected to monitor and improve posiusa.com service and performance. For example, when you visit a web page the URL requested is automatically recorded, as is the time and date requested, and the browser software being used.
Specific or aggregate information may be collected to help maintain accurate accounts, assist in marketing our products and services, and to help make our website useful to you. For example, our server recognizes your domain name and the pages that you visit. This data is gathered in an aggregate manner for quality control and improvement of our sites.
From time to time, posiusa.com may provide aggregated statistical information about sales, browsing patterns, and navigation techniques to reputable third parties. This is not personally identifiable information and assists posiusa.com to improve products and services offered.

The terms and conditions of the offer should also be clearly stated. Please read this information carefully, and understand that it is your own choice should you choose to disclose your personally identifiable information to a third party.

Unsolicited commercial e-mail (UCE) or "spam"
Spam is the Internet term for marketing or commercial e-mail you receive for which you did not ask. Professional Outsourcing Solutions, Inc. does not and has never supported or condoned this practice.
Marketing mail from posiusa.com will generally be “opt-in” / “opt-out”. This means that you should not receive any commercial or marketing e-mail from us unless you have requested it, that is, you have opted in. When you opt-in, every piece of commercial e-mail will contain an opt-out option, or unsubscribe function. You can send us a message telling us you would prefer not to receive the mail again and we will respect your wishes.
We may also send you an e-mail providing general information about services we provide. Each time we do that, we will give you the opportunity to opt out or unsubscribe should you choose not to receive further e-mails of that type.
