Please take a moment to read the following to learn more about our information practices, including what type of information is gathered, how the information is used and for what purposes, to whom we disclose the information, and how we safeguard your personal information. Your privacy is a priority at Outwords, and we go to great lengths to protect it.
Why we collect personal information
We collect your personal information because it helps us deliver a superior level of customer service. It enables us to give you convenient access to our magazine and services. In addition, your personal information helps us keep you posted on the latest issues and events that you might like to hear about.
If you do not want Outwords to keep you up to date with Outwords and other events, click www.outwords.ca/contact/myinfo and update your personal contact information and preferences.
What information we collect and how we may use it
There are a number of situations in which your personal information may help us give you better service. For example:
We may ask for your personal information when you’re registering for updates of our magazine or participating in an online survey.
When you interact with Outwords we may collect personal information relevant to the situation, such as your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and contact preference.
We also collect information for market research purposes — such as your occupation and address — to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more valuable service.
When we disclose your information
Outwords takes your privacy very seriously. Outwords does not sell or rent your contact information to other marketers.
At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
How we protect your personal information
Outwords takes precautions — including administrative, technical and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
Integrity of your personal information
Outwords has safeguards in place to keep your personal information accurate, complete, and up to date for the purposes for which it is used. You always have the right to access and correct the personal information you have provided. You can help us ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by checking at www.outwords.ca/contact/myinfo. And you can request a copy of your personal information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Outwords will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.
