What is Personal Information?
Personal Information is defined in PIPEDA as information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization. In other words, it does not include the information that one expects to find on a business card or information that is available in public records.
Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, a User’s name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, facsimile number, age, gender, interests, browsing preferences, web logs, Internet protocol addresses, network and server particulars, and/or other information relevant to the Web Site, promotional and marketing activities (the “Personal Information”).
How is Personal Information collected?
Core collects a User’s Personal Information in one of three ways; unsolicited information provided by a User, information obtained from the public or third parties, and information collected from a User’s computer or other electronic device.
Core may collect unsolicited Personal Information provided by a User voluntarily, such as Personal Information and other data entered into forms or data fields on the Web Site or via any other online resources.
Information from Public or Third-Parties
Core may collect Personal Information from Users that register on the Web Site, from public or third party information sources to verify their professional credentials and identity.
Information Collected from a User’s Computer or other Electronic Device
Core collects information from a User’s computer and other electronic devices when a User accesses the Web Site and other online resources. The information that is collected during this process includes but is not limited to a User’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, domain name, browser type, date and time of a User’s request and information provided by tracking technologies, such as cookies and single-pixel tags, which are defined below.
If a User is accessing the Web Site from a mobile device, Core may collect information about the User’s device, such as a User’s device ID and device type, as well as usage information, use of mobile Web Sites and other mobile resources.
“Single-pixel tags”, also known as web beacons or web tags, are graphics that function similar to cookies. Single-pixel tags are not visible. Single-pixel tags are used to collect information in web logs that do not identify a User personally such as web pages viewed, the web site a User came from and the advertisement the User clicked on to visit the Web Site. Single-pixel tags are also used to confirm whether promotional or other commercial e-mail messages that are sent via the Web Site are opened.
In order to properly manage the Web Site, Core may also anonymously use log information on operational systems, and identify categories of Users by items such as domains and browser types. Statistics may be reported to a party assisting Core in offering the Web Site such as webmasters.
