This information may include personal information relating to or originating from you and information that you may supply to us that may originate from others in connection with your use of the services offered by CVD (herein called “Services”) and/or access to or use of one or more websites operated by us or on our behalf (herein called “Website”). If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us (see “Contact us” below).

This Policy, including any modifications, governs any information that is been submitted to CVD regardless when such information is submitted to us. By agreeing to the Terms of Agreement of CVD, you agree to terms of this Policy and any modifications thereto.

The term “you” as used herein refers to any individual user of the Website and Service, including registered and unregistered users.

Collecting Information from you

Information You Provide. When you register an account or disclose any information through the submission of any form, we ask you for certain information that can be used to contact and/or identify you, as well as additional information about you (herein called “Personal Information”). Personal Information includes but may not be limited to your name, email address, home or business address, profile photo, and website domain name address. If you are a business or other commercial user, we may ask you for additional information such as your business identification number, if any, and personal information relating to individuals employed by your business, for example as a contact person or principal. You may also provide us with email addresses of non-registered users of CVD when sharing information with them.

Log Data. When you use the Services or visit the Website, whether as a Registered User or a Non-Registered User, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (herein called “Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as the browser type, Internet Protocol (“IP Address”), the webpage visited prior to visiting our Services, any pages of our Service that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Services, access times and dates, metadata concerning the files you upload, and other statistics.

Cookies. We may use data files known as “cookies” in association with our Services and Website. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computing device. We use cookies primarily for two purposes: i) we use “persistent” cookies to save your login information for future login to the Services; ii) we use “session ID” cookies to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Services. You can instruct your browser by changing its settings to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use some or all of the Services.

Personal Information. Personal information is information that is specific to your identity and/or purely personal information such as your name, contact information such as your physical or email address or phone number, age, sex and similar information. Our use of Personal Information is subject to the terms of this policy.

Using Your Information

Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information. We may disclose aggregated information that does not include Personal Information and we may disclose Non-Identifying Information and Log Data with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes. Any information or Log Data shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.

Service Providers. We may employ certain trusted third-party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services, to provide the Services on our behalf, to perform Service-related services (e.g., maintenance services, database management, web analytics and improvement of the Service’s features) or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are used. Any such service provider may have access to your Personal Information. However, any such access is provided where reasonably possible under conditions that establish legally-enforceable obligations of confidentiality.

Third-Party Applications. We may share your information with a third-party application with your consent, for example when you choose to access our Services through a third-party who may operate a service that provides direct user access to CVD.

Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We can disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to respond to claims and legal process including, but not limited to, subpoenas, to protect the property and rights of CVD or a third-party, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity. This may include the disclosure of Personal Information for such purposes.

Business Transfers. CVD may sell, divest, transfer, assign, share or otherwise engage in a transaction that involves, some or all of our assets, including any or all of the information described in this Policy, in the course of a corporate divestiture, merger, acquisition, joint venture, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or any other similar transaction or proceeding.

Links to other sites and services. Our Services contain links to other third-party websites and online services that are not owned or controlled by CVD. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. If you choose to visit another website or online service by clicking on a link, you will be directed to that third party’s website or online service. The fact that we may link to a website or online service is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites and online services, and these third parties may place their own cookies or other files on your computer and collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites and online services follow different rules regarding the collection, use and/or disclosure of personal information. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites or online services you visit before providing any information or using such websites or services. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by us.

If you wish to request that we no longer use your Personal Information to provide you services, you may contact us at Unless you specifically request us to delete your information, we may retain your information indefinitely. If you request that we delete your information, we may retain a limited amount of your information to the extent that we deem to be necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. Consistent with these requirements, we will try to delete your information as quickly as possible upon request. Please note, however, that there might be latency in deleting information from our servers and backed-up versions might exist for a period of time after deletion. In addition, we may not delete from our servers files containing non-personal information.

Information Security. The security of your information is very important to us. We use commercially reasonable security standards to protect the information collected and maintained through the Service. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us nor guarantee that information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by unauthorized persons.

Breach Notification. We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach or unauthorized disclosure that compromises the security, confidentiality, or integrity of Personal Information to you via email, posting on the Website, or other means without unreasonable delay, insofar as such notification is consistent with or required by (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system or (iii) any applicable breach notification requirements.

International Transfer. Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside Canada and choose to provide information to us, we transfer Personal Information to Canada and processes it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.
