CHANGE OF PURPOSE
We will only use your personal information for the purposes we have disclosed in our notice(s). If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you. Please note that we may process your personal information without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
While no data security system can fully protect personal information from unauthorized data breaches, PLH has implemented reasonable safeguards and controls, consistent with its legal obligations under CA and other local, state and federal laws. PLH is committed to: (i) seeking to safeguard all personal information that you provide to us; (ii) seeking to ensure that it remains confidential and secure; and (iii) taking all reasonable steps to ensure that personal privacy is respected.

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
