PLEASE READ THE AGUA ENTREPRENEURIAL SOLUTIONS (AGUA) PRIVACY STATEMENT CAREFULLY. Privacy is very important to us (AGUA). For the purpose of this privacy
statement, “we”, “our” or “us” refers to AGUA or www.aguaweb.ca and “you” refers to visitor.
We know that you too value privacy and that’s why this Privacy Statement tells you how we protect, gather and use information obtained through www.aguaweb.ca . This Privacy Statement only applies to the www.aguaweb.ca website and no other websites. Please read all privacy statements on other websites that www.aguaweb.ca links to. This website and this Privacy Statement are intended for everyone who visits www.aguaweb.ca.
Using this website means you agree to the terms as written in this agreement regarding this Privacy Statement. This Statement is a comprehensive agreement between you and us regarding your use of www.aguaweb.ca. Additional terms may apply if and/or when you access materials or specific services on certain areas in this website or click a link from www.aguaweb.ca to another website.
The information we obtain during your visit to the website and how we use it depends on you. For example, we gather and use your non-personal information differently than personal information.
Non-personal information means the information collected through www.aguaweb.ca that does not personally identify you such as the web browser software used, like Internet Explorer, the domain name from where you logged on to the Internet, which pages you visited on www.aguaweb.ca and de-identified information. We may gather certain non-personal information about you from your computer’s web browser if you visit www.aguaweb.ca to download or read information.
However, we do not accumulate or acquire your personal information such as e-mail address, name or home address. We may place a cookie (a text file) on your computer’s browser files when you access the website. The cookie is typically stored on the hard drive and collects only non-personal information. You have the right to decline our cookies if your browser allows. However, some areas of the website may not work properly when cookies are disabled. Please know that we do not allow any other parties to place cookies on www.aguaweb.ca.
Personal information comprises information we gather via www.aguaweb.ca that identifies you such as your e-mail address, name and/or company name, telephone number and birth date. Some web pages on www.aguaweb.ca may give you the chance to provide us with your personal information. For instance, you may complete an e-mail form, quote form or survey which requires providing us with personal information.
We may retain and use personal or private information we gather from you via www.aguaweb.ca so that you can access the website. Also, we may keep and use your personal information to respond to your questions and personalize your access to www.aguaweb.ca. For instance, we may use information to tell you about new features and provide information that may interest you such as new products or services. We use and retain your personal information for analytical purposes too.
In addition, we keep and use your information to research and develop as well as improve products, programs, services and content. You can remove identifying information. However, once you’re de-identified, your information becomes non-personal. We may treat your information like other non-personal information. For example, to enforce this Privacy Statement and other rules about your use of this website, comply with a law or regulation, court order or other legal process.
AGUA does not share your personal information gathered from www.aguaweb.ca with any third party without your consent. However, there are some exceptions outlined in this Privacy Statement that do apply. We will not exchange, sell or publish your personal information, except in conjunction with a merger, acquisition, corporate sale or dissolution of AGUA. If legally bound, we may release your personal information when answering a court order, search warrant, law or regulation or subpoena.
Visitors who violate our rules or engage in behaviour which is harmful or illegal to other visitors will be investigated and prosecuted. In fact, we may cooperate with law enforcement authorities during investigations and prosecution of visitors. We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we feel that the disclosure is necessary. For example, disclosure to third parties would be necessary in order to enforce the Privacy Statement and other rules about your use of www.aguaweb.ca, to protect an individual’s welfare, obey the laws or regulations, protect our rights or property, court orders or other legal processes.
Please note that in addition to the ways that we may keep, release and use information described in this Privacy Statement, we also may retain and use personally identifiable information that you give us through www.aguaweb.ca in ways that we believe are consistent with governmental regulations and laws.
If we make a significant change to our Privacy Statement, we will post a notice on the www.aguaweb.ca homepage for a period of time after making the change. Significant changes are outlined below.
For your convenience, AGUA’s website may contain links to websites. Some of these websites are operated by AGUA and some are third party websites. The other websites also have policy statements. We do not, however, have any control over third party privacy practices. Thus, we do not review or monitor the privacy practices not related to aguaweb.ca.
Thus, this Privacy Statement does not apply to other websites we link to, even those operated by AGUA. We are not responsible for the performance of third party websites or for any interactions you decide to pursue with them. Therefore, whenever you leave www.aguaweb.ca, we recommend that you read and review each website’s privacy practices and conclude whether their privacy practices are adequate or acceptable.
AGUA may occasionally contact you. Typically, communications occur via mail, online chat, e-mail or telephone. The purpose of contacting you involves providing information about our services, content and programs that might interest you.
Also, some of the features on www.aguaweb.ca allow you to communicate with us via our website’s form. If you request a response from us, we will communicate with you via e-mail. Our response could include personal information about you, your company, your address and any other information provided. We cannot, however, guarantee that our e-mails to you will be protected from unauthorized interference.
We take steps to protect your personal information from being misused, intercepted, destroyed or altered. Keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100 percent error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from www.aguaweb.ca may not be secure. Thus, you should take special care in determining what information you send to us via e-mail.
