Credit card information is used only for payment processing and fraud prevention, and is not used for other purposes.

Who we share it with
PCS will not sell, rent, or lease your personally identifiable information to others. PCS will not share your personal information with a business partner or any unrelated third party company unless you give your permission. Your permission will be requested when you submit your information.
You can subscribe to receive some product- and service-specific information and PCS marketing communications. PCS communications may include new product information, special offers or possibly an invitation to participate in market research. We give you a choice regarding PCS communications by postal mail, email and telephone.
PCS will not sell, rent or lease your personally identifiable information to unrelated third party companies. Some PCS services are linked with those from other unrelated third party companies, some which offer you the option to share personal data you give with both PCS and the third party. Examples include the ability to register software products from multiple vendors from a single PCS web page, request communications from PCS marketing or solution partners or enable order completion through a reseller. We will not share your personal information with those third party companies unless you make that choice. Local country laws and policies are applied where they differ from those in the U.S.
Personal data given to PCS may be transferred across state and country borders for the purposes of data consolidation, storage and simplified customer information management. The practices which govern this data movement are described in our commitments in the Choice and Security sections of this privacy statement.
Access & Accuracy
PCS strives to keep your personally identifiable information accurate. We have put in place managerial data standards review processes and technological tools to maintain customer data accuracy. We will provide you with access to view and change your information, including making every effort to provide you with online access. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. Certain areas of PCS’s web sites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and other personal identifiers.
The most effective way to view and change your personal information is to return to the web page where you originally submitted your data and follow the instructions on that web page or send us a message as described in “Contacting us” below. Data access is also available upon request.

We use SSL encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Credit card numbers are only used for processing payment and are not used for other purposes. Our efforts to protect credit card fraud help protect your financial data security. As part of real-time payment processing, PCS subscribes to a fraud management service. This service gives you and PCS an extra level of protection to guard against credit card fraud.
To opt-out of PCS marketing contact, please provide your name, email and/or address and relevant information about subscriptions or registrations you may have with PCS. This opt-out will cancel all marketing and support communication and newsletters, including software driver subscriptions.
