If at any time you wish to remove your email address from Pioneer’s email marketing list, you can do so by selecting the opt-out option in our email messages or by updating your “My Account” settings online. If you opt out, we still may email you for non-marketing purposes with respect to your purchases of our products and services, for example the availability of firmware updates or any changes to services.

Do Not Track Signals: The Websites do not currently recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include “do not track” instructions.
DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Pioneer does not sell or rent your personal information. We disclose personal information to our affiliates (for example, our parent company) and to our service providers (including where they collect personal information on our behalf), for the purposes described under “What Information is Collected and How is it Used?” Pioneer may also disclose personal information: to certain of its business partners who provide services that complement or interoperate with our products and services; if required by law, court order or governmental regulation, such as in response to a subpoena, other legal process, or where we elect to comply with a law enforcement or other government request; to report activities we reasonably believe to be unlawful; or as necessary to exercise our legal rights, defend claims brought against us, or otherwise protect our interests. In accordance with applicable law, we may also disclose personal information to an actual or potential buyer or successor in the event of a merger, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets.
TRANSFER OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may process, store, and transfer your personal information in and to a foreign country, with different privacy laws that may or may not be as comprehensive as Canadian law. In these circumstances, the governments, courts, law enforcement, or regulatory agencies of that country may be able to obtain access to your personal information through the laws of the foreign country. Whenever we engage a service provider, we require that its privacy and security standards adhere to this policy and applicable Canadian privacy legislation.
If you would like further information about our policies and practices with respect to our service providers located outside of Canada or otherwise have any questions regarding these service providers, please contact our Privacy Officer.
THE SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
While we use reasonable physical, technical and organizational security measures in an effort to protect the personal information we collect from you, no security system is perfect and we cannot guarantee that your information will remain secure in all circumstances.
