Protecting personal information and respecting personal privacy are very important to us (HelpingNewcomersWork.ca.). This policy applies to all of our information practices in relation to our Websites (“Our Websites”); our Print and electronic publications (“Our Publications”); and our Email newsletters (“Our Email Newsletters”.)
Personal information will not be collected and stored by us, electronically or otherwise, without your knowledge and consent.
The purpose of collecting personal information is to be expressly stated by us whenever solicited, and is not to be used for purposes other than those stated.
Personal information obtained by us is not to be shared with third parties, unless your consent is obtained beforehand.
Information which we treat as personal includes the following:
- Your name;

Non-personal information collected automatically
Non-personal information is collected from Our Websites in the form of web logs. The web logs are used to analyze anonymous behavior on Our Websites for the purposes of improving our products and services. On occasion, aggregate statistics will be provided to reputable third-party companies, but these statistics will contain no personally identifiable information.

Polls and Surveys
Any responses that you may provide to any online polls or surveys that we conduct and any feedback or questions that you may submit through our Websites, Our Publications, or Our Email Newsletters will remain anonymous, unless you choose explicitly to identify yourself. We may, however, post responses to any such submissions, without identifying you as the submitter.
Accuracy of collected personal information
We shall from time to time on our own initiative, or immediately upon your request, rectify or erase any incomplete, inaccurate or outdated personal information retained by us.
Information that is no longer being used for the reasons stated upon collection is deleted from our databases after five years.
