The Short Version
Privacy legislation is mostly common sense. We don’t track users beyond anonymous site analytics (such as Google Analytics), we don’t send people anything they didn’t ask for, and we don’t share any personal information you give us when you do things like subscribing to receive the print magazine or submitting a contact form. We only use that personal information to do what you asked us to do (such as putting you on our magazine mailing list or answering the question you submitted). We also do our best to keep any information you share with us secure. You can contact us at any time if you want us to delete any data you have shared with us.
What Information Do We Collect and What Do We Do With It?
Website Analytics: When someone visits www.bizadv.ca we use two third party services, Google Analytics and WordPress, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone.
Mailing Lists: As part of the subscription process for our print magazine, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to mail you our print magazine; to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade mail or email lists with other organizations and businesses. You can unsubscribe from receiving our print magazine at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom the Subscribe page or by contacting us.
Web Forms: As part of sending a general inquiry via web forms on our site (such as our Contact page) we collect personal information so that we can respond to your inquiry. We don’t share your personal information with any third parties and only use it to do what you’ve asked us to do.
Email: If you send an electronic mail (email) message that includes personally identifiable information, for example, in an email message containing an inquiry, we will use that information to respond to your inquiry. Remember that email is not necessarily secure against interception. If your communication is very sensitive, or includes information such as your bank account, charge card, or social insurance number, you should not send it electronically unless it is encrypted or our website indicates the particular site is secure.
Employees: Our employees may view information that you provide us in order to perform their jobs and service you. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to you. We do not share nonpublic personal information with third parties without your consent.
Access to Your Personal Information: You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Just contact us and let us know.
In a nutshell, we only use the personal information you give us to carry out services you have requested, and we may contact you to make you aware of additional services, products, or information you might find useful. We make every effort to keep your personal information secure. We do not share your personal information with any third parties.
