The collection, use, and disclosure of information obtained through any affiliate sites (including https://startups.singerlaw.ca) are governed by privacy policies available on those sites.

We collect the following types of information.

  • Your personal information and other information that you submit to us through the Website using forms, e-mail or otherwise (“Personal Information“).
  • Communications between you and us.
  • Details of the computer system or computer network which you use to visit the Website, such as a unique device identifier, user behavior from web based cookies and web beacons (see the heading “Cookies and Internet Advertising” below for more details), session identifiers from device ID, commercial available services and data aggregator platforms, IP address, operating system, browser type, browser version, browser configuration, name of internet service provider, and other types of computer and connection related information relevant to identifying your type of device, connecting to the Website, enabling data exchange with you and your device, and ensuring a convenient use of the Website.

Cookies and Internet Advertising: 

The Website uses cookies, web beacons and similar technologies for various reasons. Cookies are small data files that are commonly stored on your device when you browse and use websites and online services. They are widely used to make websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information and assist with service or advertising personalization. Web beacons often work in conjunction with cookies. We may use cookies, web beacons and similar technologies for the following purposes:

  • To authenticate and identify users when they use the Website;
  • To prevent fraud;
  • To maintain the security of the Website;
  • To personalize and enhance our users’ experience with the Website;
  • To collect information, including viewing patterns, click-throughs, visited pages, and responses to e-mail;
  • To understand and enhance the Website, and
  • To monitor visitor traffic and actions on the Website.
  1. USE OF INFORMATION

Your Personal Information will be used by us only to contact you directly in response to a query submitted through a web form and for no other purpose.

Information other than your Personal Information may be used to:

  • provide, improve, test, and monitor the effectiveness of the Website
  • develop and test new products and features
  • monitor metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns and
  • diagnose or fix technology problems
  1. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

All Personal Information submitted to us through the Website is confidential and subject to solicitor-client privilege. However, we may be under an independent ethical duty to reveal privileged information where: (a) disclosure is required to prevent harm to an identifiable group, (b) disclosure is required to make sure that innocent parties are not unjustly convicted of criminal convictions, or (c) we are required to disclose the information by law or court order.

We may disclose your information (other than Personal Information) as well as information from tools like cookies, log files, and device identifiers and location data, to third-party organizations that help us make the Website available to you, who will be given access to your information as is reasonably necessary to assist with the Website under reasonable confidentiality terms. We may also share certain information such as cookie data with third-party advertising partners. This information would allow third-party ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. We may remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with other parties. We may also combine your information with other information in a way that it is no longer associated with you and share that aggregated information.

We may disclose and otherwise use your information where we reasonably believe such disclosure is needed to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, (b) enforce our Website terms of use, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address illegal or suspected illegal activities (including payment fraud), security or technical issues, or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of the Website, its users or the public, as required or permitted by law.

  1. SECURITY

We use reasonable measures to safeguard your information, including your Personal Information, against loss, theft and unauthorized access, use and modification. Unfortunately, no measures can be guaranteed to provide absolute security. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of your information.

Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft and the practice known as “phishing” is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DISCLOSURE OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT THAT SUCH DISCLOSURE IS MADE INTENTIONALLY OR THROUGH OUR GROSS NEGLIGENCE.

  1. CHILDREN

You must be 18 years of age to access the Website.

  1. OTHER WEB SITES AND SERVICES

We are not responsible for the practices employed by any websites or services linked to or from our Website, including the information or content contained within them. Please remember that when you use a link to go from our Website to another website or service, our Privacy Policy does not apply to those third-party websites or services. Your browsing and interaction on any third-party website or service, including those that have a link on our website, are subject to that third party’s own rules and policies.

  1. CHANGES TO OUR PRIVACY POLICY

We will update this Privacy Policy from time to time in response to changing legal, regulatory or operational requirements. We will provide notice of any such changes (including when they will take effect) in accordance with law. Your continued use of the Website after any such updates take effect will constitute acceptance of those changes.
