Commitment to Privacy
Crossfield Publishing is committed to maintaining the security, confidentiality, and privacy of your personal information. The following statement outlines our commitment to the privacy of all of our customers, newsletter subscribers, contest participants, and those who visit our website. Each of the ten headings below relate to the ten principles of Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
When Crossfield Publishing works with third party service providers who deliver services on our behalf, we may disclose your personal information to them only to the extent necessary to enable them to provide services to you. Crossfield Publishing requires third party service providers to manage and guard all personal information in accordance with Canadian laws.
Crossfield Publishing will, from time to time, provide external website links administered by unrelated parties. When Crossfield Publishing provides external website links we make no endorsement or representation regarding the practices of these websites. You should read the privacy policies of any site to which you provide personal information.
We will not use or disclose your personal information without your knowledge and consent unless it is permitted or required by law as outlined in PIPEDA.
You may withdraw your consent at any time and we will delete your personal information, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice.
Personal information will be retained only as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is collected. We will destroy, erase, or make anonymous documents or other records containing personal information as soon as it is reasonable to assume that the original purpose is no longer being served by retention of the information and retention is no longer necessary for legal or business purposes. We will take due care when destroying personal information so as to prevent unauthorized access to the information.
If you demonstrate the inaccuracy or incompleteness of your personal information, we will amend the information as required. If appropriate, we will send the amended information to third parties to whom the information has been disclosed.
When a challenge regarding the accuracy of personal information is not resolved to your satisfaction, we will annotate the personal information in our possession with a note that correction was requested but not made.
In certain circumstances under the law, we will not disclose information to you. Examples of such circumstances are if the information is subject to solicitor-client privilege, or if the information contains confidential commercial information, or if disclosure of the information could harm an individual’s life or security. If we will not disclose information to you we will give you our reasons for not doing so.
