COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA; PRIVACY
Premier is a services business headquartered in North Carolina, U.S.A. We do not provide services outside of the United States and, accordingly, individuals who are residents of or located in the European Union should not submit any personal data regarding themselves to us inasmuch as this site and our administrative procedures have not been designed to be undertaken consistent with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
On the “Contact Us” page of this site, you can share contact information for yourself, opt in to be added to our mailing list to receive information about our services, and submit messages to us. You can always choose whether or not to provide information on the site. In any case, we ask that you not submit highly sensitive personal data such as social security numbers or health information via the “Message” field on the “Contact Us” page. If you contact us with question or comments, we may obtain the contact information you provided in order to reply to you. If you choose to complete the form, you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information, and (b) immediately notify us if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches related to this site. Any changes to your contact information may be made by completing a new “Contact Us” form. If you provide information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, we may be unable to contact you or to respond to your message.
You also consent to receive electronic communications from Premier (e.g., via email if you provide us your email address or by posting notices to this site). These communications may include notices related to these Terms and are part of your relationship with us. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including, but not limited to, that such communications be in writing. You should maintain copies of electronic communications from us by printing a paper copy or saving an electronic copy. If you opt in to be added to our mailing list, we may also send you communications about our services via email, including, but not limited to, newsletters, special offers, surveys and other news and information we think will be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving these promotional emails at any time by following the “unsubscribe” instructions provided therein.
Premier is committed to processing and protecting the personal data collected through this site when you use this site in compliance with its obligations under applicable privacy laws, laws governing the privacy of your personal data. Premier’s policy is to retain personal data necessary to provide our services, except that we may retain your personal data for longer periods where reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests), meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce these Terms, or fulfill your request to “unsubscribe” from further messages from us. This policy applies to personal data that you or others provided to us and personal data generated or inferred from your use of our services. When Premier is the data controller, we will decide how your personal data is processed and for what purposes.
Where Premier has a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, warrant, administrative order, civil investigative demand, subpoena, or other valid process, Premier may disclose IP addresses, personal information, and any contents of this site where it is legally compelled to do so.
We implement a number of security features to help guarantee and ensure to the greatest extent possible that your information is safe. We use industry standard technologies when transferring and receiving user data exchanged between Premier and third parties to ensure its security. User data may be stored on servers maintained by our third party partners and subject to their security safeguards. We take care to use only service providers who have agreed to comply with all applicable laws, and who we believe are reputable and able to maintain the security of personal information and confidential information.
Personal Information We Share
We do not sell, rent, trade, or otherwise share personal information collected through the site, except as described below:
- Subsidiaries and Affiliates. We may share personal information with our subsidiaries and affiliates for the purposes for which you provided the information or as reasonably necessary for our internal administrative and business purposes.
- Service Providers. We may work with third parties that provide services on our behalf in relation to the site. Such services may include website hosting, marketing, and website usage analytics.

Server Log Files
Our Internet pages collect a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time (so-called timestamp) of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider (ISP) of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the person accessing this site. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of this site correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, except in case of an attack on our systems, we analyze pseudonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal information we process. The pseudonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal information provided by a person accessing this site.
Duration of Storage of Your Personal Information
We will only retain your personal information for so long as we reasonably need to use it for our current or prospective business relationship with you unless a longer retention period is required by law (for example for regulatory purposes). When the need for retaining the information no longer exists, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the purpose for which we collected the personal information.
If we wish to use your personal information for a new purpose, not covered by these Terms, or by existing consent or contractual obligations, then we will provide you with a new notice explaining this new use prior to commencing the processing and setting out the relevant purposes and processing conditions. Where and whenever your express consent to any change or update is required under data protection law, we will seek your prior consent to the new processing.
Our point of contract for questions related to data protection is:
Premier Warehousing Services, Inc.
PO Box 7927
Rocky Mount, NC 27804
If you have any concerns about the collection, use, or processing of personal information, please contact us using the contact information provided above.
