COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
In order to give you the best experience on our Websites, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information. We only collect such information if it is reasonably necessary to fulfill your online requests or our legitimate business objectives. Personally Identifiable Information. “Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII” is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your full name, address, telephone number, or email address. We do not collect Personally Identifiable Information from you unless you choose to provide it to us. If you choose not to provide us with certain PII, you will be able to continue using the Website, except you may be unable to use certain features on the Website. Non-Personally Identifiable Information. In addition to the PII you provide to us, we may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information from you when you visit the Websites. “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” or “Non-PII” is information that does not identify you as an individual. For example, we may collect the following Non-Personally Identifiable Information from you when you visit our Websites:
- Demographic information such as your age, date of birth, gender, hobbies, interests, zip/postal code or country. Demographic Information is not PII unless it is combined with PII about a specific user. If you choose not to provide us with certain Demographic Information, you will be able to continue using the Website, except you may be unable to use certain features on the Website.
- Technical Information is information that is automatically collected when you visit the Websites, such as information about your computer or device, hardware, software, connection information, Internet Service Provider (“ISP”), browser type and language, operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address (which is a numeric address assigned to your computer by your ISP), the web address of sites you visited before and after visiting the Website, the web search that landed you on the Website, web pages and advertisements you view and links you click on within the Websites, information collected through cookies and web beacons, information about your interactions with email messages (such as the links clicked on and whether the messages were opened or forwarded), and standard server log information. Technical Information is not PII unless it is linked to PII about a specific user.
- Aggregate information is anonymous data about individuals that is grouped together to study a group or category of services or users. Aggregate Information is not considered PII unless it is linked to PII about a specific user.
USE OF INFORMATION
DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We may share PII, Non-PII, and Aggregate Information with our vendors who help us perform various functions necessary to operate our business or fulfill your requests, such as completing your transactions, developing and executing our advertising campaigns, and providing business analytics. Any vendors or partners with whom we may share PII are permitted to obtain only the PII they need to deliver the services requested. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the PII and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. We also may disclose PII, Non-PII, and Aggregate Information (i) to our parent company, subsidiaries, third parties and other affiliated companies; (ii) in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law; (iii) if doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process; (iv) to respond to any claims or inquiries; (v) to enforce the terms and conditions of our or other Orec Canada owned websites; (vi) to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Orec Canada , our customers, or the public; (vii) as part of any merger, sale, transfer of company assets, or acquisition, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable laws; or (viii) for any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect the PII or pursuant to your consent.
NETWORK AND INFORMATION SECURITY
The security and confidentiality of your information is extremely important to us. That is why we have established reasonable safeguards for the security, integrity, and privacy of the PII submitted through the Websites. We also have implemented reasonable security measures to help protect information under our control against loss, misuse, and alteration. For example, PII is stored in firewall protected servers. We also strive to limit access to PII to employees performing a legitimate business function. We review our security procedures periodically to consider appropriate new technology and updated methods. Despite our efforts, no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable. Therefore, although we take commercially reasonable steps to secure your information, no data storage system or transmission of data over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
