Privacy Statement

 

This Privacy Statement sets out the privacy policies and practices for Canada Green Building Council (“CaGBC”) with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information in connection with www.canadabuildsgreen.cagbc.com (the “Site”).

In this Privacy Statement, “personal information” means any information about an identifiable individual, as further defined under applicable Canadian laws.

 

Collection of Personal Information

The Site's profile form requires users to give us company information (such as name, address and website url), contact information (such as name, phone number and email address) and other information that is used by CaGBC to provide services. CaGBC uses the customer contact information from the registration form to send the user information that he or she has requested regarding the Site or regarding services offered by CaGBC.

 

This Site uses an advertising form for CaGBC Members and customers to place online and/or print ads. One of the express purposes of the Site is to gather contact information provided voluntarily by CaGBC Members and customers to be published online, in connection with companies and organizations that are being promoted by customers. CaGBC has no control over who views online ads. Contact information provided may be used to contact customers when necessary. We collect customers’ financial information (such as account or credit card numbers) to bill the user for services, but retain this information only as required to process the transaction and for as long as may be required by law.

 

Disclosure of Personal Information

CaGBC will not use or disclose personal information for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with the consent of the individual or as required or permitted by law.
