How to complain
We hope that we can resolve any query or concern you raise about our use of your information.
The General Data Protection Regulation and the UK GDPR also gives you the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular (under the GDPR) in the European Union (or European Economic Area) state where you work, normally live, or where any alleged infringement of data protection laws occurred. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner who may be contacted at https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint or telephone: 0303 123 1113.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is fully secure. Accordingly, and despite our reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, PPI cannot guarantee or warrant the security of the Personal Data you transmit to us.
Certain areas of our Sites (for example, shared folders hosted on our web platform) require the use of a user ID, email address, or password as an additional security measure that helps protect your Personal Data. To help you protect your privacy, these Sites have tools to help you log in and log out.
Your Personal Data is processed principally in the United States, where privacy laws may be less stringent than the laws in your country and where the government, courts, or law enforcement may be able to access your data.

For EU and UK residents, PPI will mostly transfer your data within the European Economic Area.

If you would like to know the measures we have in place to secure personal information transferred outside the European Economic Area and the locations where your data has been transferred, please contact us using the details on the “Contact Information” section below
You, as the data subject, have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work, or place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of your personal data does not comply with legal requirements.
