The legitimate interests upon which we rely in processing your Personal Information include the following:

Information Sharing

When you access or use the Services, we will only collect, use, share, and otherwise process your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy. Pierce Aerospace does not and will not sell your Personal Information. Pierce Aerospace will not share or otherwise disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your consent or another valid legal basis permitted by applicable laws and regulations. 

Pierce Aerospace will share your information in the following circumstances on the legal basis of the legitimate interests of providing the requested Services:

Aggregated Non-Personal Data: We may disclose aggregated, non-Personal Information received from providing the Services, including information that does not identify any individual, without restriction. Pierce Aerospace may share demographic information with business partners, but it will be aggregated and de-personalized, so that Personal Information is not revealed.

Within Pierce Aerospace: We may share and process information internally within Pierce Aerospace and with our subsidiaries and affiliates. Pierce Aerospace personnel may have access to your information as needed to provide and operate the Services in the normal course of business. This includes information regarding your use and interaction with the Services.

Service Providers and Third-Party Vendors: Pierce Aerospace works with various organizations and individuals to help provide the Services to you ("Service Providers" or “Third Party Vendors”), such as website and data hosting companies and companies providing analytics information. Pierce Aerospace needs to engage such Service Providers or Third-Party Vendors to help us operate, provide, and market the Services. These entities may use your information only to perform these tasks on our behalf. Information we share with our Service Providers or Third-Party Vendors may include both information you provide to us and information we collect about you, including Personal Information and information from data collection tools like cookies, web beacons, and log files.  Pierce Aerospace takes reasonable steps to ensure that our Service Providers and Third-Party Vendors are obligated to reasonably protect your information on Pierce Aerospace’s behalf. If Pierce Aerospace becomes aware that a Service Provider or Third-Party Vendor is using or disclosing information improperly, we will take commercially reasonable steps to end or correct such improper use or disclosure.

Business Transactions: Pierce Aerospace may purchase other businesses or their assets, sell our business assets, or be involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets (a “Business Transaction”). Your information, including Personal Information, may be among assets sold or transferred as part of a Business Transaction.

Safety and Lawful Requests: We may be required to disclose Services user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We generally do not disclose user information unless we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. We may share your information when we believe it is necessary to comply with applicable laws, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Services or using the Pierce Aerospace’s name, or to protect the safety of any person. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents, or government agencies. Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s, request to disclose your information.

Your Rights and Choices

Pierce Aerospace seeks to ensure all individuals are provided with the rights mandated by their governing jurisdiction.

Data Security

Pierce Aerospace takes commercially reasonable efforts to secure and protect the privacy, accuracy, and reliability of your information. Pierce Aerospace implements security measures as we deem appropriate and consistent with industry standards. Pierce Aerospace will protect your information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, alteration, destruction and disclosure as required by the Rules of Professional Conduct (or other rules) applicable to Pierce Aerospace’s attorneys and all laws and regulations applicable to Pierce Aerospace; provided, however, that, except as provided in the immediately following sentence, Pierce Aerospace will, at a minimum, use commercially reasonable efforts to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, alteration, destruction and disclosure. 

Certain Personal Information posted by you to the Services may be accessible to the general public, and Pierce Aerospace is not responsible for protecting such Personal Information from loss, misuse or unauthorized access, alteration, destruction or disclosure. For example, if you participate in a public forum on the Services, any information disclosed by you when doing so may be available to the general public. Also, since no transmission of information over the Internet or electronic storage of information is completely secure, it is possible that your information could be lost, misused or accessed, altered, destroyed or disclosed without authorization, even if Pierce Aerospace uses such reasonable efforts. In providing information to Pierce Aerospace, you must assume the risk that your information could be lost, misused or accessed, altered, destroyed or disclosed without authorization. Accordingly, any information you transfer to or from Services is provided at your own risk.

Electronic Communications

Whether or not you have previously sent Pierce Aerospace an e-mail message, you consent to Pierce Aerospace’s sending you e-mail messages and other electronic communications (a) in connection with your use of the Services, (b) in the ordinary course of business, or (c) for any other legitimate business purpose (including, but not limited to, marketing). Since Pierce Aerospace endeavors to send e-mail messages and other electronic communications only to individuals desiring to receive them, you can unsubscribe to such e-mail messages or other electronic communications at any time by contacting Pierce Aerospace using the contact information provided in this Privacy Policy or by following the directions contained in such e-mail messages or other electronic communications.

Third-Party Services

The Services may contain links to, or be accessible from, websites provided by third parties (individually a “Third-Party Services”). Your use of a Third-Party Services will be subject to its terms of use and other provisions, and you are responsible for complying with such terms and other provisions. This Privacy Policy does not cover the privacy policies or practices of any Third-Party Services, and Pierce Aerospace is not responsible for any information you submit to, or otherwise collected by, any Third-Party Services. Pierce Aerospace is only responsible for information obtained by it (a) through your authorized use of the Services or (b) from other sources in the ordinary course of its business.  You should consult each Third-Party Services for its Privacy Policy or practice before submitting any information to, or otherwise using, such Third-Party Services.
