Personal information is generally considered to be any information about an identifiable individual. The only personal information that we collect from your visit is what you provide to us voluntarily for specific purposes, such as inquiries, feedback, or when you subscribe to our newsletter. As true of most other websites, our web servers automatically record details about website visits and interactions, which are non-identifiable. Web server log records are generated when visitors browse our web pages. The information log records capture data that includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, the general location or region where your computer or device is accessing the internet, browser type, operating system and other usage information about the use of the VIRTUES website, including a history of the pages you view. We may use this information to help us design our site to better suit our users’ needs. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website, analyze trends, track visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying visitor preferences.
If you correspond with us via the website or subscribe to our Newsletter specifically, then we use your information to communicate with you, in accordance with your expressed instructions, such as to reply to your inquiry. Except as provided in this policy, we do not use your Personal Information for any other purpose. We do not disclose data collected from this website unless data is requested to comply with the law (i.e. to comply with a search warrant, subpoena, or court order). We do not sell personal information to anyone.
We have implemented best practices associated with the consent and unsubscribing provisions for Commercial Electronic Messages (CEMs) in Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). Consent is required by CASL in order to subscribe to our Newsletter, thus we ensure recipients have expressly opted-in to receive VIRTUES communications. Unsubscribe options are made available to cancel subscriptions.
Appropriate technical, physical, and administrative safeguards are in place to ensure the security of personal information you voluntarily provide us. We employ the highest standards of security technology which includes updates and testing of our security technology on an ongoing basis.
