2.5 When purchasing online from our retail website, to make sure you are accessing a secure server, check for the unbroken key or closed lock symbol located generally either at the bottom left or top right of your browser window. If it appears, then a secure connection (TLS) is active. You can double check this by looking at the URL as well.

5.2 PGW’s websites collect the domain names, not the email addresses of visitors. Our web server may require you to place a “cookie” (small data file) on your computer’s hard drive or device, in order to track statistical information about navigation to and throughout certain areas of the site. If you are just surfing and reading information on our website, then we collect and store the following information about your visit:

  • the IP address of your machine when connected to the Internet and the domain name from
    which you are accessing the Internet
  • the operating system and the browser your device uses, and any search engine you are
    using
  • the date and time you are visiting
  • the URLs of the pages you visit
  • if you provide it, your email address.

We use that information to measure the number of visitors to different parts of the site and, for example, to measure the effectiveness of advertising.

5.3 We use email open and click tracking including cookies, a single pixel image for tracking and link redirects for tracking clicks, for us to get a better understanding of which email communications are of most interest to you so we can provide you with a better experience by sending relevant and interesting email communications.

5.4 We use Remarketing through Google Analytics and other third party providers to advertise online by delivering PGW ad content to you which is specifically targeted to your interests based on your visits to our website. Third-party vendors, including Google and Bazaarvoice, show PGW ads on sites across the Internet.
