Privacy

Welcome to www.pgia.ca (the “Site”)

We understand that privacy online is important to users of our Site, especially when conducting business. This statement governs our privacy policies with respect to those users of the Site (“Visitors”) who visit without transacting business and Visitors who register to transact business on the Site and make use of the various services offered by www.pgia.ca (collectively, “Services”, “Authorized Users”).

“Personally Identifiable Information”

refers to any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains, including, but not limited to, name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, financial profiles, social security number, and credit card information. Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (that is, without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.

What Personally Identifiable Information is collected?

We may collect basic user profile information from all of our Visitors. We collect the following additional information from our Authorized Users: the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of Authorized Users.

How does the Site use Personally Identifiable Information?

We use Personally Identifiable Information to customize the Site, to make appropriate service offerings, and to fulfill information requests on the Site. We may email Visitors and Authorized Users about research or purchase and selling opportunities on the Site or information related to the subject matter of the Site. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to contact Visitors and Authorized Users in response to specific inquiries, or to provide requested information.

With whom may the information be shared?

Personally Identifiable Information about Authorized Users may be shared with other Authorized Users who wish to evaluate potential transactions with other Authorized Users. We may share aggregated information about our Visitors, including the demographics of our Visitors and Authorized Users, with our affiliated agencies and third party vendors. We also offer the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving information or being contacted by us or by any agency acting on our behalf.

How is Personally Identifiable Information stored?

Personally Identifiable Information collected by www.pgia.ca is securely stored and is not accessible to third parties or employees of www.pgia.ca except for use as indicated above.

What choices are available to Visitors regarding collection, use and distribution of the information?

Visitors and Authorized Users may opt out of receiving unsolicited information from or being contacted by us and/or our vendors and affiliated agencies by responding to emails as instructed, or by contacting us at info@pgia.ca

Are Cookies Used on the Site?

Cookies may be used for a variety of reasons. We may use Cookies to obtain information about the preferences of our Visitors and the services they select. We also may use Cookies for security purposes to protect our Authorized Users. For example, if an Authorized User is logged on and the site is unused for more than 10 minutes, we will automatically log the Authorized User off.

How does www.pgia.ca use login information?

www.pgia.ca does not currently require a login on the website and as such does not use login information at this time.

What partners or service providers have access to Personally Identifiable Information from Visitors and/or Authorized Users on the Site?

www.pgia.ca has entered into and will continue to enter into partnerships and other affiliations with a number of vendors. Such vendors may have access to certain Personally Identifiable Information on a need to know basis for evaluating Authorized Users for service eligibility. Our privacy policy does not cover their collection or use of this information.

Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information to comply with the law.

We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information in order to comply with a court order or subpoena or a request from a law enforcement agency to release information. We will also disclose Personally Identifiable Information when reasonably necessary to protect the safety of our Visitors and Authorized Users.

How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?

Visitors and Authorized Users may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us at info@pgia.ca.

Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?

We provide Visitors and Authorized Users with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site’s database by contacting info@pgia.ca. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor’s entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.

What happens if the Privacy Policy Changes?

We will let our Visitors and Authorized Users know about changes to our privacy policy by posting such changes on the Site. However, if we are changing our privacy policy in a manner that might cause disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information that a Visitor or Authorized User has previously requested not be disclosed, we will contact such Visitor or Authorized User to allow such Visitor or Authorized User to prevent such disclosure.
