Personalized Offers and Web Analytics
We also automatically collect information when you visit our website in order to customize your experience. For example, we collect information about what site referred you to our website, your browser type, operating system type and version, language, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. We also collect information about how you browse through our website, including logging the pages you visit and the amount of time you spend on certain pages. We use this information for a number of technical purposes to ensure that our webpages load correctly in your browser, as well as to personalize our offers to you. We also use this information to improve our website. For example:
5.1 we use IP addresses to correct pages for your geographical location;
5.2 we log the frequency of visits to certain pages on our website and how visitors navigate through our website in order to detect problems, improve our website and learn about what services are of interest to our customers;
5.3 we use information about services that you have clicked on to make suggestions about other services that you might be interested in viewing; and
5.4 we track whether certain types of e-mails were opened by you and whether you sought information about a particular service in order to make inferences about other services you might be interested in.
Your Ad Choices: Interest-Based Advertising
Our website uses small pixel files (small images) and cookies (small text files) to keep track of your browser so that you will be recognized when you visit other websites where our third-party ad management providers may show you advertisements from us based on your visit to our website. Some of these advertisements may be customized to particular services that you viewed or they may be based on inferences about products and services that you might be in-terested in. This is called “interest-based advertising”.
These pixel files and cookies are generally valid for a limited number of days (usually no more than 90 days) and are provided by our ad management providers. We require our ad management providers to participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada’s Ad Choices Program. Click here http://youradchoices.ca/ to visit the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada’s Your Ad Choices website where you can find out more information about digital advertising and how you can opt-out of interest-based advertising.
Please note that if you opt-out of interest-based advertising you may still see advertisements from us on other websites. However, they will not be customized based on your browsing history on our website. In addition, we will continue to customize our offers of services to you when you are on our website unless you block cookies from our website. If you block cookies on our website, certain functions may not function properly because our website must recognize you as you move through various processes.
Regarding Children and Minors
Our website and the services offered on our website are not directed to children under the age of 19 years. We will not knowingly collect personal information about a child under the age of 19.
We do not allow minors (persons who are under the age of majority in their place of residence) to create accounts.
Do We Disclose Your Personal Information to Others?
We may share your personal information with our service providers and corporate affiliates that help us with our business operations. For example, we may share information about you with others who provide services to us or who assist us to service you. We share information with service providers and our affiliates who provide us with marketing and promotional services. We require our service providers and our affiliates to keep your personal information secure. In addition, our service providers may not use or disclose personal information for any purpose other than providing the services on our behalf unless we or they have obtained your consent.
We may transfer any information we have about you in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization or other change in corporate control.
We may also disclose your personal information if it is necessary for us to collect a debt from you or where we have reason to believe that it is relevant to the investigation or decision to investigate a breach of the laws of Canada, a province or territory of Canada, or a foreign jurisdiction, and we are legally permitted to do so.
Law Enforcement Requests
We will disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent if we receive an order, subpoena, warrant or other legal requirement issued by a court, tribunal, regulator or other person with jurisdiction to compel disclosure of your personal information, unless the information is urgently required to prevent serious bodily injury or serious damage to personal property, in which case we will disclose your information immediately. If we receive a written request from a police officer or other law enforcement agency with authority to request access to your personal information in the course of an actual or potential investigation into a breach of a law, our policy is to provide the requested information.
Storage Outside of Canada
Your personal information may be used or stored by us or our service providers and corporate affiliates outside of Canada. We require that our service providers and corporate affiliates safeguard your personal information. However, if your personal information is used or stored outside of Canada, it will also be subject to the laws of the country in which it is used or stored.
If you register for an account, you will have the option to choose what marketing and promo-tional e-mails and communications you receive from us. You can also store information such as your home and business address and other personal information in order to assist us to serve you more effectively and efficiently.
You can modify your information by logging into your account and making the requested changes. You cannot modify a service review once it has been submitted.
You may also choose “close my account” and we will remove your account information from active use.
Please note that we still maintain information that you provided to us for audit purposes or to comply with our legal obligations.
How Do You Access and Modify Your Personal Information or Make a Complaint?
If you have an account, log in to access and to modify the personal information stored with your account. If you have questions or concerns about other personal information collected by us and would like assistance accessing that information, please contact our us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 416-277-9866.
How Do We Protect Your Personal Information?
We take administrative, technical and physical measures to safeguard your personal infor-mation against unauthorized access, unauthorized disclosure, theft and misuse. This includes limiting access of employees to, and the use of, your personal information through the use of passwords and graduated levels of clearance. We do not publish all of our security measures online because this may reduce their effectiveness. We take physical precautions to ensure that the computer servers on which your personal information is stored and archived are secure and that access to such servers is protected. We educate our employees with respect to their obligations to protect your personal information and we require our affiliates and any third-party service providers to take comparable steps to ensure the protection of any of your personal information that is shared with them.
Although we take precautions against possible breaches of our security systems, no one can fully eliminate the risks of unauthorized access to your personal information and no website is completely secure. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss or breaches of our security systems will never occur. Accordingly, you should not transmit per-sonal information to us using our website if you consider that information to be sensitive.
Links to Third-Party Websites and Social Network Plug-Ins
You may be able to access third-party websites through links available on our websites. You may also connect to social networks. These links are provided for your convenience. We do not have any control over those third-party websites and we do not provide any guarantee that the privacy practices of the hosts of those websites meet our standards. Your use of such third-party websites is at your own risk and will be governed by the privacy policies of those websites and not by this Privacy Notice. Do not transmit personal information using those websites without reading the privacy policies governing those websites.
You may create links between our website and social networking sites. If you do so, we may be able to publish updates about our services to your social network account through the links that you establish. You may terminate those links at any time by modifying your social network account.
If you are logged into a social networking site when visiting our page, your visit to our website will be personalized based on your social networking profile.
