Insum Privacy Policy

Insum Solutions Inc. and its affiliated companies (“Insum”, “we” or “us”) provides this privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) to inform visitors and users of its website located at www.insum.ca and users of our products and services (“you” or “Users”) of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information that you provide to us in connection with use of our website and our products and services (the “Products and Services”).

This Privacy Policy applies to www.insum.ca and any authorized sub-sites that expressly adopt, display or link back to this Privacy Policy.

By using and/or accessing this website or our Products and Services, you agree to be bound by the terms set out in this Privacy Policy, and you consent to our collection, storage, use, processing and disclosure of your personal information as set out in this Privacy Policy, as may be amended from time to time.

When used in this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means any information about an identifiable individual. This may include, for example, name, contact information, email address, and information relating to an account with us. Information that is aggregated and cannot be associated with an identifiable individual is not considered to be personal information.

COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We only collect personal information that is reasonably necessary to allow our Users to have access to our Products and Services. We have specifically detailed how we use the personal information we collect below.

We may collect personal and non-personal information that you provide to us when:

  • You voluntarily submit your information to us;
  • You request information about our Products and Services;
  • You submit questions to us;
  • You subscribe to our Products and Services; and
  • You choose to submit your resume in relation to career opportunities posted on our website.

We use your personal information internally: (i) to help us improve our website and our Products and Services, (ii) as stated in your agreement with Insum, as applicable, and (iii) as stated in any consent document you have provided, as applicable. The personal information provided by you may also be used to communicate with you in connection with your various inquiries and subscriptions or to consider you for employment purposes, and will be kept for the time period in which it is necessary for the purpose it was collected.

We may also use non-personal information to create aggregate tracking information reports regarding User demographics

COOKIES

When you use our website, we may collect, using electronic means such as cookies, technical information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. This information may include the IP address of the computer used and the type of browser used to view our website. This technical data is aggregated and used to measure and improve the effectiveness of our website. We do not attempt to combine this technical data with the personal information we collect through our services or that we otherwise have in our control.

You can block the use of cookies by activating the settings in your browser. The “Help” feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you choose to withhold consent, or subsequently block cookies, you may not be able to access all or part of the content of our website. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.

PROTECTION AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Unless we have your express consent or as required or permitted by law, we will not sell, rent, share or trade your personal information to any third party. However, we may share personal information with service providers that we use to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of the operation of our website or our Products and Services. These service providers are subject to confidentiality agreements with us and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the information we provide them for any purpose other than to facilitate the specific outsourced related operation.

From time to time, we may be required to provide personal information in response to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves.

In the event that we intend to sell or transfer ownership or control of any or all of our business, operations or services to a third party, we reserve the right to disclose your personal information to a potential buyer both before and after the purchase. However, in the event the sale goes through, we will require that the receiving party agree that they will be similarly bound by the provisions of this Privacy Policy and that they will only use and disclose your personal information as we are similarly entitled under this Privacy Policy. In the event the sale does not go through we will require the potential purchaser to not use or disclose your personal information in any manner whatsoever and to completely erase the same.

RETENTION

Personal information will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes for which it was collected and for which consent was received, unless otherwise required by law. Personal information that is no longer required to fulfil the identified purposes will be destroyed, erased or made anonymous.

ACCESS, CORRECTION AND DELETION

We respect your right to access and correct your personal information. You may contact us to exercise these rights at privacy@insum.ca.

Unless restricted by law, we will take all reasonable steps to functionally delete your information from our database(s) upon request, although we may keep a copy for archival purposes for as long as necessary to comply with legal requirements. We will respond to your request to access, update or delete your information within thirty (30) business days. Before we are able to provide you with any information, correct any inaccuracies or delete any information, however, we may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details (in a secure manner) to help us to respond to your request.
