At The Pegaesus Group, protecting our users' privacy and security is among our top priorities.

This policy describes what types of information we gather, how it is used, and under what circumstances we disclose your data to third-parties, and your rights to update or correct it.
Scope of Policy:
This Policy applies to The Pegaesus Group sites (pegaesusgroup.net,pegaesusgroup.com, pegaesus.com, and 401kez.net). It does not apply to other companies' or organizations' web sites to which we link to or from. You should carefully review the privacy policies of those web sites in order to determine how they treat your personal information.
INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
Information Gathered From Participants:
We gather certain generic information with respect to users' use of our web site, such as the number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the areas on the web site that they access. This statistical data that is gathered does not contain any personally identifiable information about you or any of our users.
We collect and analyze traffic on our web site by keeping track of the IP addresses of our users that have Participant and/or Human resources administrative access. IP addresses are unique numeric identifiers that are assigned to each computer browser accessing the Internet. An IP address, by itself, cannot identify you personally. However, when combined with other information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), your IP address can be used to identify the computer originating the action. We only keep IP addresses for the use of security and to potentially identify malicious behavior by unauthorized users.
The Pegaesus Group reserves the right to communicate with you from time to time about important administrative, policy, or legal matters which will affect your use of our web sites, including without limitation any alleged violations of our Terms and Conditions of Use. These communications are mandatory.
Disclosure of Your Information:
The Pegaesus Group reserves the right to disclose your information to the parties necessary for administration of your account and participation in your respective plan. Under no circumstances is your personal information provided to any person or company outside the scope of plan administration. You personal information is not used for the purposes of advertising or any other marketing application.
Notwithstanding the above policies, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information to appropriate third-parties if we are required to do so by law or we believe that such action is necessary:
- To comply with legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order;
- To protect the company's rights and property;
- To investigate reports of users sending material using a false e-mail address or users sending harassing, threatening, or abusive messages
- To protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our web site and/or the The Pegaesus Group services.
Your IP address and Hostname is logged by your attempts to login or access specific areas of this site. Under certain circumstances, legal representatives, and/or law enforcement authorities may be able to combine this with information disclosed by ISPs to determine the originating source. By using this site, you knowingly and voluntarily assume any risks associated with such disclosure.
Control of your Personal Information:
At any time, a qualified participant can access and change any of their personal information that we keep on file that is allowable within the confines of the data needed for your participation in the plan. For example: once your status has been changed to 'Terminated' and your are still participating in the plan you are not able to change your employment status, however you are able to change your employment status to 'Terminated' if you are currently active within your particular plan.
When you access any Plan Specific areas of our website all data is transmitted by way of an advanced 128-bit encryption technology known as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to prevent access and transfer of your data to unauthorized parties. While on a secure page, such as our enrollment, change and/or distribution forms, as well as all pages accessed from within your plan, a lock or key icon appears on the bottom of your web browser's status bar. We have taken all reasonable steps to protect and maintain your personal data both on and off line. The servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment and are operated from a dedicated Internet hosting facility with state-of-the-art physical security features, including smoke detection and fire suppression systems, 24x7 secured access, as well as video surveillance and security breach alarms.
Using Common Sense in Online Activities:
Sometimes the best way to prevent any potential malicious activity is to protect yourself. We recommend that you do not keep your account information where it is available to others. Always use the "Logout" link in protected areas to close and end your sessions, especially if you are using a public or community computer.
