"Non-Personal Information" is information of an anonymous nature, such as an Internet Protocol Address (IP Address), the domain used to access the Website, and the type and version of browser or operating system being used.  Aggregate information, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g. average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors, what pages users access or visit, average time spent on this Website, and information volunteered by the user, such as survey information, is also considered Non-Personal Information.  Business contact information such as the name, title, business address or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is not considered Personal Information.

Non-Personal Information is collected or derived by us in the course of operating the Website and the Services.  For example, our web servers may automatically collect Non-Personal Information which is provided through your browser or stored on a Cookie when you choose to visit the Website.  We need this information in order to operate the Services, but we do not share it with any third parties. This policy does not restrict our use of Non-Personal Information.

[“Cookies” are used by CamTrader to track content usage and traffic on this Website.  A cookie is a feature of your web browser that consists of a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server.  CamTrader uses cookies to help it compile aggregate statistics about usage of this Website, such as how many users visit the Website, how long users spend viewing the Website, and what pages are viewed most often.  This information is used to improve the content of the Website.  You can set your browser to notify you when you are sent a cookie.  This gives you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.  If you disable cookies however, you may not be able to take advantage of all the features of this Website or our Services.]

CamTrader collects Personal Information mainly for the following purposes:

  • To contact and correspond with you; and
  • To enable your use of the Services.
  • To facilitate and enhance your use of the Website; and
  • To meet legal and regulatory requirements.

Your Personal Information will not be used for any purpose other than those abovementioned without your consent.

5. Disclosure of Information

CamTrader feels very strongly about keeping the Personal Information you give us confidential.  CamTrader will not share the Personal Information we collect from you with any third party, except as indicated below.

Removal will be completed within 7 days.

From time to time we may employ third parties to help us improve our Website and to provide various services (e.g. hosting, database management, maintenance, etc.). These third parties may have limited access to databases of user information or registered member information solely for the purpose of helping us to provide such services.

Important Exceptions

We may disclose your Personal Information to a third party without your consent if we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other Website users or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.  We may disclose Personal Information when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is required by and in accordance with the law.

6. Communications from Us

We provide transactional notifications for certain activities relating to your use of our Services despite your indicated e-mail preferences, for example we may send you notices of any updates to our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy. If you opt-in to receive marketing communications from us, we will also keep you up to date on our products and services.  You may withdraw your consent to receiving marketing communications from us at any time by following the opt-out instructions in each communication. You may not use this Website to harvest addresses, send spam or otherwise breach our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy.

7. Outside Parties and Sites

Through CamTrader, you may be introduced to a variety of third party vendors and websites.  The privacy policies of these third parties are not under our control and may differ from ours.  The use of any information that you may provide to any third party, or the use of “cookie” technology by any third party, will be governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the website that you are visiting.  If you have any doubts about the privacy of the information you are providing on another website, we recommend that you contact that website directly for more information and review its privacy policy.

8. Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us.  We use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that your Personal Information is stored and maintained in a secure environment.  [In particular, all Personal Information contained in messages sent when using the Services encrypted during transmission to CamTrader using industry standard authentication and encryption technologies.  We protect the Personal Information you give us by putting it behind multiple levels of firewalls, with active intrusion detection systems.] However, it is not possible for CamTrader to guarantee protection against any and all authorized access and disclosure of your personal information.

You can help protect the security of your Personal Information.  For instance, never give out your password to another person, and remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you finish using the Website, so that other people using the same computer won't have access to your Personal Information. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail.  

9. Retention

CamTrader will keep your Personal Information for as long as it remains necessary for the identified purposes in Section 4 or as required by law, which may extend beyond the termination of our relationship with you.

You acknowledge and agree that if you request that your name be removed from our databases, it may not be possible to completely delete all your Personal Information due to technological and legal constraints.

10. Amendment of this Policy

If we find it necessary or desirable to change our Privacy Policy in the future, we will post an appropriate notice on the CamTrader Website [www.camtrader.ca].  Any change to this Privacy Policy will become effective 30 days following the date the change is posted and will apply to information collected from the date of the posting of the revised Privacy Policy and to existing information held by CamTrader.  The date on which the latest update was made is indicated at the top of this document.  We recommend that you print a copy of this Privacy Policy for your reference and revisit this policy from time to time to ensure you are aware of any changes.  Your continued use of the CamTrader Website and/or CamTrader Services signifies your acceptance of any changes to this policy.
