“Personal Information” is defined as information about an identifiable individual, though it does not include the name, business title, business address or telephone number of employees of organizations. We are committed to protecting any Personal Information that is collected by us in connection with the Services and adhering to all applicable privacy legislation, including Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”), the Canadian Standards Association’s Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information, Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”), the US Federal Trade Commission Act, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act 15 USC S6801, and US Federal law, including the Electronic Government (E-GOV) Act of 2002 and the Privacy Act of 1974.
