Welcome to the cmcc.ca web site (the "cmcc.ca site"), owned and managed by the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College ("CMCC"). Various CMCC services are offered through web pages at cmcc.ca and are made available subject to this Privacy Statement. This statement discloses the privacy practices of the cmcc.ca site. By using the CMCC services, you agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by this Privacy Statement.
The Privacy Statement contains detailed information about the following:
|What information of yours does the cmcc.ca site collect and use?|
We collect two types of information from you, "Anonymous Information" and "Identifiable Information".
Anonymous Information refers to information that cannot be traced back to an identifiable specific individual. Each time a visitor comes to the cmcc.ca site, CMCC collects information that is necessary to improve the overall quality of the visitor's online experience. CMCC collects the visitor's referral data (e.g., the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to cmcc.ca), and browser and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform). CMCC also collects aggregate search terms from its search services for internal reporting, service improvement and targeted advertising.
CMCC also uses Anonymous Information to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our registered users and visitors, and to measure user demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the cmcc.ca site. Without such data, we would be unable to identify the most popular areas of the cmcc.ca site, and we would be unable change and update the content and services appropriately. No Identifiable Information will be used during these activities.
In addition to this Anonymous Information, CMCC may also collect Identifiable Information, being information that tells us specifically who is using the cmcc.ca site, such as your name, phone number and e-mail address. Wherever and whenever CMCC collects Identifiable Information, we include a link to this Privacy Statement on that page.
CMCC collects Identifiable Information in the following ways from different parts of the cmcc.ca site:
With your specific permission, the cmcc.ca site may, from time to time, use your information to contact you about changes or enhancements to services on the cmcc.ca site. If you indicate that you were interested in receiving promotional offers, your Identifiable Information will be used for such communications.
|What are 'cookies' and how does CMCC use them?|
|Website usage tracking|
cmcc.ca may automatically record some general information about your visit in order for CMCC to engage in web statistical analysis using Google Analytics. We want to make sure our sites are useful to visitors, and ensure we engage in targeted advertising responsibly, such that individuals receive information that is relevant to their needs and interests. Automated data collection does not lead to profiling that significantly affects cmcc.ca users, but simply gives CMCC a clear picture of its website visitors. User information gathered and shared with Google may include the:
Data collected for web analytics purposes may be processed in any country where Google operates servers, and thus may be subject to the governing legislation of that country.
|With whom does the cmcc.ca site share the information that is collected?|
|How can you access or edit your information?|
The cmcc.ca site provides its registered users the ability to access and edit the identifiable information in their user profiles once they have logged in. You can also contact CMCC at any time in order to update your information.
|How does CMCC safeguard your Identifiable Information?|
The cmcc.ca site has security measures in place to attempt to protect you against the loss, misuse and alteration of your user data under our control. In all cases, your information is retained in secure facilities, protected from unauthorized access and kept only as long as is reasonably required. Only authorized employees who have a need to know your information for the purposes described in this statement have access to the information you choose to provide to us.
CMCC has imposed strict rules on cmcc.ca site employees who have access to the databases that store user information or to the servers that host data on behalf of CMCC. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, we make every effort to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. For example, we employ Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to encrypt your Identifiable Information when it is transmitted to us, and our web server sits behind a regularly patched firewall.
You are ultimately responsible for the security of your cmcc.ca site Login ID and password. Please take care when using and storing them. CMCC recommends that you do not divulge your password to anyone. You should log out of your browser at the end of each session to ensure that others cannot access your Identifiable Information, especially if you share your device with someone else or are using your device in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. CMCC is not liable for any illegal use of your Identifiable Information that is beyond our reasonable control.
No method of transmitting or storing data is 100% secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us through or in connection with cmcc.ca. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account has been compromised), you must immediately notify us of the problem in order for CMCC to resolve the issue in a timely manner. Also keep in mind that e-mail is not a secure form of communication so never send sensitive personal information to us via e-mail. Examples of sensitive information include social insurance numbers or credit card numbers.
