What is Personal Information?
“Personal Information” is information about you, although most business contact information or information from a public directory listing of your name, address, or telephone number is not Personal Information. Anonymous information, including demographic information and statistics, is not considered Personal Information.
Collection of Personal Information
Personal Information is collected by AiMS Environmental when you provide it to us, for example via the Site or when submitting company or personal information to the AiMS Environmental office in the course of conducting business with us.
We may also collect your IP address when you use this Site, including details of your visits to our Site or third-party service and the resources that you access, including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, and other communication data.
We collect your Personal Information for the purposes of improving our communications through electronic newsletters or in the course of daily business operations. We may also anonymize your Personal Information and use the resulting data for market research, business optimization and other purposes.
The Site may also use analytics or collect statistics to track when you access certain web pages.
Third Party Websites
Please be aware that AiMS Environmental does use a third-party website for managing portions of its business. AiMS Environmental does not represent and cannot guarantee that those websites have privacy policies similar to this Policy. AiMS Environmental disclaims all liability in relation to such third parties or online services.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
We collect and use your Personal Information only for the purposes described above and other purposes disclosed to you at the time of collection or as permitted by law. We do not disclose your Personal Information, except as disclosed to you at the time of collection or as permitted by law.
If you indicate that you are interested in receiving information from AiMS Environmental, your Personal Information will also be used to contact you or to send you information about services or products available that might be of interest to you.
We implement reasonable security safeguards to protect Personal Information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. We use physical, organizational, and technological measures to protect Personal Information.
We will keep Personal Information only for as long as it remains necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or as required by law.
Processing of Personal Information
Your Personal Information may be processed and stored outside of the location in which it was collected by us or a third-party service provider, subject to local law. If your Personal Information is transferred outside of Canada, your Personal Information will be subject to the laws of the country in which it is stored. In certain circumstances, foreign courts, law enforcement agencies or regulatory agencies may be entitled to access your Personal Information without notice to you.
You should be aware that information transmitted on the internet, especially by electronic mail, is never 100% secure. As a result, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to AiMS Environmental by electronic mail.
