Your privacy is important to us and therefore Global Chin Directory (we) is firmly committed to the protection of your privacy. This Statement sets out how we collect, use and secure the personal information of individuals using any website owned by us. By using our website, you agree to be bound by the following privacy statement. If you do not agree with this statement, please do not continue all use of our site immediately.
- Collection of personal information
We do not gather any personal information from users of our website automatically without the user’s consent. Personal information is only obtained if users supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, applying online for a contest, answering online surveys, submitting a posting to a blog, forum, or review or registering for services.
- Use of your personal information
We will generally collect and use personal information to administer our contests, promotions, surveys, reward programs, and other services, to understand our customers’ responses, needs and preferences, and to generally manage our business.
We may also use personal information to contact our customers or suppliers with marketing or promotional materials regarding our products, programs, and services or to assist our front-line staff in providing tailored sales offers to our customers. We may exchange or merge personal information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.
Personal information may be shared with our agents or contractors in connection with services that they perform for us. Our written agreements with such agents and contractors ensure that personal information can only be used for the purposes for which it was shared with them and that they handle the personal information in accordance with this Statement. Some of our agents and contractors are located outside of Canada and, as such, are subject to foreign laws, including laws that may require disclosure of personal information to government agencies in those countries.
- Your Consent
By providing us with your personal information, you consent to our collection, use and disclosure of that information as described in this Statement as amended from time to time or as described at or before the time of collection, use or disclosure, as the case may be. If you do not want your personal information to be collected, used or disclosed in this manner, then please either:
If you have submitted personal information to us and wish to withdraw your consent to its retention, use or disclosure, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may withdraw your consent, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide some products or services to you.
Where permitted or required by law, we may collect, use or disclose your personal information without your consent, for example, to collect a debt you owe us, to comply with a legally permitted inquiry by a government agency, or to comply with a court order.
- Access and contact
You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by a login. You can review, correct and update the information you have posted about yourself by accessing your profile. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections. We can, upon request, provide you with the information you might have provided but not aware of that to provide delete as you wish.
