What Information might we collect and How is it Used?

When using the PAL web portal to pre-register a visitor, or when you pass through a PAL, we may collect certain general information about you and your visitor, in order to process the request for entry into Commerce Court. This information could include the name, email address, company affiliation of the person.


Your Consent

In some cases, yours and/or the visitors consent is implied, if we ask you to provide personal information with a stated purpose and you provide that information. Listed below are some examples of the ways that we collect information about you and how we use it.

  • On Line Visitor Registration
    To register a visitor via our online web portal, you need to provide us with basic general information such as your name and email address. The same is also true in respect of the visitor you are registering.
  • At the Concierge Desk
    When checking in or registering at the Concierge Desk, a valid form of government picture identification may be required. While we might ask you permission to scan in the information contained on the ID, the only information we are collecting from the ID card is in respect of your name. If you oppose the scanning of your information, we will manually input it into our system.
