CSEB PRIVACY STATEMENT

CSEB Privacy Statement

Canadian Society for Epidemiology and Biostatistics (CSEB) is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of its customers and visitors to our web site. We do not sell, rent, or trade email lists with other companies. This Privacy Policy details when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, how we keep it secure, and the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify you, such as your name, title, phone number, email address, or mailing address.

In general, you can browse our web site without giving us any personal information. We use Google Analytics to analyze traffic to this web site in order to understand our customers’ and visitors’ needs and to continually improve our site for them.

If you want to subscribe to one of our newsletters, we ask you to simply provide your business email address. In that case, we use your email address only in connection with providing you the newsletter and for no other purpose.

Disclosure of Personal Information

CSEB sometimes hires vendor companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering items, sending postal mail, and providing technical support. We provide those companies only the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

Our goal is to abide by the strictest interpretations of the privacy laws governing personal information for each region in which we operate. While data protection laws vary widely among different regions, CSEB and its offices and subsidiaries are governed by this Privacy Policy and will use your personal information only as set forth in this policy.

CSEB may also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in connection with a sale, merger, transfer, exchange or other disposition (whether of assets, stock or otherwise) of all or a portion of a business of CSEB and/or its subsidiaries or to (1) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process served on CSEB or this web site; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of CSEB and this web site; (3) enforce its agreements with you, or (4) act in urgent circumstances to protect personal safety or the public.

Children and Privacy

Our web site does not offer information intended to attract children. CSEB does not knowingly solicit personal information from children under the age of 13.

Security of Personal Information

When you submit any form requiring sensitive personal information, we use a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) helps protect your information as it travels over the Internet by encrypting that information before it is sent to us. We have also implemented industry-standard security mechanisms and procedures to protect data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a small text file containing information that a web site transfers to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. Cookies allow us to analyze our site traffic. A cookie cannot give us access to your computer or to information beyond what you provide to us. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies; consult your browser’s manual or online help if you want information on restricting or disabling the browser’s handling of cookies. If you disable cookies, you can still view the publicly available information on our web site. If are using a shared computer and you have cookies turned on, be sure to log off when you finish.

Links to Other Web Sites

Our web site contains links to information on other web sites. We do not have any control over these other web sites, and therefore we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide while visiting those sites. Those sites are not governed by this Privacy Policy, and if you have questions about how a site uses your information, consult that site’s privacy statement.

Your Consent

By using our web site, you consent to the collection and use of the information you provide to us as outlined in this Privacy Policy. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time and without notice. If we change our Privacy Policy, we will publish those changes on this page.

If you have any questions or concerns about our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information, please email us at secretariat@cseb.ca.
