What Personal Information We Collect

Personal information is information about an identifiable individual (“Personal Information”). Privacy Horizon only collects Personal Information when you voluntarily provide it to us for specific purposes, either through our Site, by registering for our services, or through other means. For example, we may collect Personal Information when you:

Contact us through email, telephone, or other correspondence, as listed our Contact Us page;
Register for a service we provide;
Complete and submit a questionnaire; or
Subscribe to receive regular updates or other communications.

The Personal Information we may collect will depend on the service you request, and may include your full name, primary contact information, such as your business address, telephone number, email address, industry sector, employee training information, role and title, or any other Personal Information that you choose to submit to us. Privacy Horizon only collects Personal Information that is necessary for the administration of our Site and our services, and that you voluntarily provide. At the time of collection, you will be informed of the specific purpose for which it is being collected.

How Privacy Horizon Uses and Discloses Personal Information

The Personal Information we collect may be used by Privacy Horizon for the purposes for which it was collected, as provided in this Privacy Policy.

For example, we may use your Personal Information to: respond to your inquiries; supply you with requested products or services; send you informational or promotional communications; to carry out other purposes that are disclosed to you and to which you consent; to carry out any other purpose permitted or required by law.

We value your visit to this Site and welcome any questions, comments or feedback you might have about this Site, any terms, or any of the products or services offered by Privacy Horizon (“Feedback”). Additionally, portions of this Site are interactive and allow registered users to voluntarily respond to questionnaires about their organization’s privacy and security programs (“Questionnaire Responses”).
If you provide any Questionnaire Responses or Feedback, you grant Privacy Horizon a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable right to use and commercialize the Questionnaire Responses or Feedback in any way and for any purpose without providing any compensation to you or any other person. You also grant Privacy Horizon the right to use the name(s) you submit with the Questionnaire Responses or Feedback, if any, in connection with Privacy Horizon’s rights and in accordance with this Privacy Policy, in order to carry out the purposes disclosed to you and to which you consent.

We retain the right to transfer Personal Information to third party service providers in order to assist us with carrying out these purposes.

Some or all of the Personal Information we collect may be stored or processed in jurisdictions outside of Canada, including the United States of America. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement according to laws in those jurisdictions. Privacy Horizon reserves the right to change where Personal Information is stored or processed – any such change will be reflected on our Site in our Privacy Policy, as revised.
Privacy Horizon also reserves the right to transfer Personal Information in the event that we merge with or are acquired by a third party. We also may disclose your Personal Information for any other purpose to which you consent or as is required by law.

How We Protect Personal Information

The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We protect your Personal Information by maintaining physical, organizational and technological safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of such Personal Information.

We follow industry standards and use commercially reasonable safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of all information collected through our Site. However, no security system is impenetrable. In the event that information under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will take reasonable steps to investigate the situation and where appropriate, notify any individuals whose information may have been compromised and take other appropriate steps, in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

Personal Information may only be accessed by persons within our organization who require such access to provide you with the services indicated above, on a need-to-know basis. Registered users submitting Personal Information through this Site will only have access to data about their own companies through the user interface.

We retain Personal Information that we collect only as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or to meet legal requirements. All user data will be de-identified or destroyed one year following the termination of a registered account, or after a one-year period of inactivity.
Access and Rectification

You have a right to access your Personal Information and to request a correction to it if you believe it is inaccurate. Registered users have access to all information about them and their company through the user interface – these users are able to continuously and contemporaneously modify their own Personal Information.

If you are not a registered user but have submitted Personal Information, for example, through the Contact Us page, you may request access or corrections to your Personal Information. Please contact us using the contact information provided below.
