PanPages Berhad ("PanPages") respects your right to privacy, and we want you to be aware of how we collect and handle information on our website and mobile application covered by this policy.
Information PanPages Collects
What information does This Website gather?
When you visit This Website, PanPages may collect the following types of information:
- Personally Identifiable Information You Knowingly Provide
- Information PanPages Collects Automatically
- Information PanPages Collects Manually (e.g. a business card, flyer, brochure, etc)
- Non-Personally Identifiable Information You Knowingly Provide
Personally Identifiable Information You Knowingly Provide. PanPages collects personally identifiable information that you knowingly provide to us. For example, PanPages may ask you to provide personally identifiable contact information (such as name, address, e-mail address and telephone number). If you purchase a product or service, PanPages may ask you to provide additional information such as your billing information. If you register for any Product Plans/Program, PanPages will ask you to provide additional information about any service services you install and may track your searches and any registrations, claims and ratings/favorites you file on This Website. In some cases (for example, if you register with us or sign-in on This Website or purchase a product or service) PanPages may also ask you to provide other information such as a personal ID, password, security question and answer, and birthday.
If you choose to use an available referral service on This Website (e.g., to send an inquery, listing, page link, invitation, etc.), we will ask for certain personal information from the recipient (e.g., the recipient's name, e-mail address, mobile telephone number) and your name and e-mail address. PanPages uses the personally identifiable referral information you provide to facilitate this communication on a one-time basis, and may also store and use such personally identifiable information for analysis purposes (e.g., tracking the success of the referral feature).
You are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of all personally identifiable information that you knowingly provide.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information You Knowingly Provide. In some cases, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information that you provide, such as search parameters in connection with a search you conduct through This Website.
How does PanPages use information collected on This Website?
Specific Purpose. When users supply personally identifiable information about themselves for a specific purpose (for example, to register to use a feature on This Website, to purchase a product or service, to obtain a free listing, to register for a program or to use a feature of a program, to receive information, or to apply for a job), we may use such information for such purpose.
Similar to Information Collected in Traditional Non-Electronic Manner. We also may use personally identifiable information users provide as we would use the same information obtained in a traditional non-electronic manner. For example, we may use such personally identifiable information to assess your position, to publish your name, address, and phone number in our directories (unless you have requested a non-published number), to contact you in connection with a subscription you are participating in, and to evaluate your service needs, and to contact you regarding additional services you may find useful. When users provide personally identifiable information in connection with a feature on This Website, we may also use such personally identifiable information in connection with the operation of such feature. (For example, if you register to use the personalized directory service, we may use the personally identifiable information you provide to provide you with a more personalized and useful service, and if you create a favorite of a business/listing on This Website, we may publish your initials and city in connection with such saved favorite.) When users provide personally identifiable information in connection with a contest, sweepstakes or other promotion that we may run on This Website, we may use such information to administer such contest, sweepstakes or promotion and to notify winners.
Communicate with You. We may also use personally identifiable information you provide or that is automatically collected to communicate with you (e.g., to send you e-mails) and to otherwise serve you. For example, we may use your name and e-mail address to send you e-mails to (a) provide information regarding our company, marketing information about our products and services or the products and services of other companies, and newsletters, (b) conduct online surveys, (c) confirm your registration on This Website, a service registration, or orders placed online and (d) otherwise communicate with you. However, you may request not to receive (i.e., "opt-out" of receiving) commercial e-mail messages (the primary purpose of which is the commercial advertisement or promotion of a commercial product or service) from us (on a category-by-category basis), by clicking ‘unsubscribe’ in the e-mail. Please note that we reserve the right to send certain types of e-mail messages that are not subject to opt-out (see information about e-mails, below) to online users, including those who have opted out of receiving commercial e-mail messages. Your personally identifiable information may also be used by non-“ PanPages Family” companies, with which we have agreements, to provide you information about their products and services.
Protect PanPage s’s Property or Other Rights. In addition, PanPages may use personally identifiable information you provide and information PanPages automatically collects through this website (and may combine personally identifiable information you provide with information PanPages automatically collects through This Website and non-personally identifiable information you knowingly provide) as it deems appropriate to protect its property or other rights (for example, to enforce any policies or contractual provisions regarding use of the "favorite" feature or the "send or contact a listing" feature).

A cookie cannot be used to access or otherwise compromise the data on your hard drive. However, customers are free to delete website cookies. Most internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
You can choose to change your browser settings to disable cookies if you do not want us to establish and maintain a unique User ID. Please be aware that cookies may be required to complete certain functions on This Website, such as ordering products or services, and, also in connection with personalized sections of This website, for example My Superpages. Disable cookies in your browser "Preferences".
However, you need to understand that some websites/ad serving companies have the ability to reestablish your history even after cookie deletion, if you reenter the same site on another occasion, or some other site tracked by the ad serving company/network, and specifically provide personal data.
Deletion of cookies alone does not prevent ad serving companies from reestablishing history on a user. The user must either continue to decline cookies each time it reenters the site to keep the tracking severed, if desired, or opt-out. When you opt-out, your unique user ID cookie is erased and you are re-assigned an anonymous, non-id cookie. This new cookie tells websites that you have opted out and they will then know not to attempt to assign other cookies to you in the future. Opt-out cookies do not contain a unique user ID number therefore websites are not able to identify your computer uniquely.
Users who choose to continually delete cookies and not opt out can have their browser advise them each time a website attempts to send a cookie to your system. At that time, you can choose to either Accept or Cancel a cookie. Users who choose to "opt out" after deleting cookies will receive an anonymous/non personally identifiable cookie.
