Meaning of Personal Information

“Personal Information” means information about an identifiable individual as described under PIPA and PIPEDA. This information may include your name, email address, telephone number, and demographic information such as your gender, race, age, and minority groups that you identify with.

Personal Information does not include any business contact information that is solely used to communicate with you in relation to your employment, business, or profession, such as your position name or title, work address, work telephone number, work fax number or work email address.

Personal Information also does not include information that has been anonymized or aggregated in such a way that there is no serious possibility it can be used to identify an individual, whether on its own or in combination with other information.

Consent to Collection, Use and Disclosure

We collect, use, and disclose your Personal Information with your consent or as permitted or required by PIPA and PIPEDA. How we obtain your consent (i.e., the form we use) will depend on the circumstances, as well as the sensitivity of the information collected.  Subject to applicable laws, your consent may be express or implied, depending on the circumstances and the sensitivity of the Personal Information in question. 

If you choose to provide Personal Information to us, we assume that you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of that Personal Information as outlined in this Privacy Policy.

If you provide Personal Information about another individual to us, it is your responsibility to obtain the consent of that individual to enable us to collect, use and disclose his or her information as described in this Privacy Policy.

If you wish to withdraw your consent to our collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Information, please contact us using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below.  However, before we implement the withdrawal of consent, we may require proof of your identity. In some cases, withdrawal of your consent may mean that we will no longer be able to provide certain products or services.
