We collect contact information (name and email address) when you subscribe to our e-publication. We also collect other information when you submit a form or register on our site. When you register on our site you may be asked to provide contact and/or industry-related information (e.g. your name, company, addresses, email, phone number, industry sector).

We use your information to administer the subscriptions you have requested to our e-publications, to respond to inquires you have made, and to provide you with detailed quotes you have requested. If you have registered with the site then we use the information collected on forms to run the tools you have selected that will assist you with your health and safety related practices. We use your credit card information to process payment for services you have purchased.

We do not share, trade or otherwise transfer your information to outside parties. This does not include transmitting your name and email address to our third-party service provider for the purpose of administering the subscriptions you have requested to our e-publications or processing payments for your transaction through our third-party payment gateway provider. Our agreement with our third-party service providers requires them to keep your information confidential. We may also release your information if we are required by law to do so.

We do not retain your information for longer than is required to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it. If you purchase services through the web site then we will retain the last four digits of your credit card number as a record of the transaction. We will not retain any other credit card information after the payment for the transaction has been processed.

Cookies are small files that our site transmits to your computer through your Web browser that enable our site to capture and remember certain information. We use cookies to: understand and save your preferences for future visits, and to compile aggregate data about our site’s traffic so that we can improve the tools and information available on our site.

All information except credit card information and the information required for sending publications to which you have subscribed is stored on our own servers. We implement a range of security measures to ensure the security of the information stored on our servers. Sensitive credit card information is transmitted in an encrypted form to our payment gateway provider.

If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy policy or about our collection of your personal information then please contact Loretta Michaud at lmichaud@whsc.on.ca

We may change this privacy policy in the future, though we are unlikely to make major changes that would result in additional disclosure of your information. We will post any changes to the policy on this page and will update the modification date given below. All modifications to this policy will be effective thirty days after the change has been posted on this page. If you disagree with a change to the policy you may give us notice within thirty days of the date the change was posted and we will not apply the change to any information we had previously collected from you. In those circumstances we may no longer be able to provide access to the non-public services provided through the web site.
