4. How Do We Share Personal Information?

Asigra does not sell to third parties any Personal Information that Asigra collects.  Asigra will obtain your consent before Asigra obtains, uses or discloses to other persons, information about you except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy unless we are obliged to do so by law or to protect ASIGRA’s interests.

Asigra may share the Personal Information that you provide with other companies hired to provide services for us. These companies - our third party vendors - are contractually bound to use Personal Information shared with them only to perform the services they have been hired to provide. Asigra does not share, sell, or lease Personal Information about you to any other third-parties except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy.

By choosing to provide Asigra with your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy, you are further consenting to its use in accordance with the principles outlined in this Privacy Policy and as may be further outlined at the time of collection. We reserve the right to transfer any Personal Information we have about you in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets to a third party. Further, we reserve the right to disclose any Personal Information as needed if such information is requested by law enforcement agencies or if we are requested to do so by law, regulation, court order, or by a government entity. We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties if we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to: (i) conduct investigations of possible breaches of law; (ii) cooperate in any legal investigation; (iii) identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms of Use of this Site; or (iv) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property.  Lastly, we may disclose your Personal Information for any other purpose to which you consent.

5. Your Password and Account Login

You may be asked to create an account login and password in order to access some of the services on the Site. You are solely responsibility for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree to accept responsible for all activities that occur under your account or password.

6. Links to other Sites

This Site may contain links to other sites that are independently owned and operated by third parties. These other sites may have their own privacy policies and are not governed by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any site(s) owned and operated by any such third parties. Other sites may collect and treat information collected differently, so we encourage you to carefully read and review the privacy policy for each site that you visit.

7. Chat Rooms and Message/Bulletin Boards

If you use chat rooms and message/bulletin boards that may be available from time to time on this Site, you should know that when you voluntarily disclose your Personal Information on a message/bulletin board, chat or other interactive area where Personal Information can be posted, the information can be collected and used by other internet users. This may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. We undertake no obligations as to the security of information you voluntarily post in chat rooms and/or on  message/bulletin boards.

8. Children's Privacy

The Site is intended for use by users on a business to business basis only. We do not expect to be gathering any Personal Information from children, but if a child has already provided us with Personal Information, his or her parent or guardian may contact us for the purpose of deleting this information.

9. Jurisdiction

All matters relating to this Site are governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein. If you are located outside of Canada, and you contact us, please be advised that any Personal Information you provide to us will be transferred to Canada and that by submitting information, you explicitly authorize its transfer.

10. How We Protect Personal Information

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards (appropriate to the sensitivity of such information) designed to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access of the Personal Information we collect on this Site.  For example, we endeavour to protect the security of your information during transmission to our Site by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information you input.  We also reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming any order that you place with us (of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing).

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  As a result, while we are committed to protecting your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.  All third parties that obtain Personal Information from us (e.g. service providers that perform functions on our behalf) are contractually required to protect your confidentiality and Personal Information in a manner consistent with this policy, and/or as required by law.

Our Canadian users should know that some or all of the Personal Information we collect may be stored or processed on computers and servers located outside of Canada, including in the United States, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which they live.  As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, law enforcement officials and national security authorities in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions.  Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to maintain protections on the Personal Information that are equivalent to those that that apply in Canada.

11. Your Consent to the Terms of this Privacy Policy

By using this Site you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy, you signify your assent to all of the terms of this Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree with any terms of this Privacy Policy or our Terms and Conditions, please do not use this site or submit any Personal Information.

12. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change or replace this Privacy Policy at our sole discretion at any time. Please check back from time to time to ensure that you are aware of any updates or changes in this Privacy Policy.  We will indicate at the top of this page the date this Privacy Policy was last revised. Your continued access or use of this Site after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the Privacy Policy as revised.

13. Retention and Disposal

Asigra keeps your Personal Information only so long as we need it for the products and services that you are using, to offer you products and services when you are a customer and for a reasonable time thereafter, or to meet any legal requirements. Asigra has retention standards, which meet these requirements. Asigra destroys your Personal Information when it is no longer needed, or we remove your name from the Personal Information.
