Privacy Statement

When you visit and/or use this web site, you may provide us two types of information - personally identifiable information that you disclose during the registration process, and general user information that does not contain personally identifiable information and is collected on an aggregate basis as you browse the web site. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with requested information, you may not be able to access all of our content or services. We collect and store personally identifiable information provided by you in order to provide a useful, interactive experience. This includes your first and last name, membership in provincial/territorial bars, practice area(s) and other preferences, and email address. We collect only the minimum information required in order to add value to our planning, tracking and notifications services. None of this information is visible to the public or other registered users of this website. It’s up to you whether you give us your real information, but it’s important for you to understand that not providing your real information may undermine the usefulness of the service we can provide.  For example, let’s say you want to print off and give someone your CPD record – don’t you want your own name on it? And if we’re going to let you know what your CPD requirements are, don’t you want to make sure we have the actual provincial/territorial bars that you are a member of so that your settings in your planner and tracker, and any deadline notifications we send you are for the correct deadlines? In addition to using this information to provide you with the information or content that you have requested, we may, in some cases, contact you about our features or services. If you no longer wish to receive this type of information from us, you may opt out of future communications. We use non-identifying information collected on this web site in the aggregate to better understand your use of our site and the CPD market, to enhance your user experience, and to enhance the experience of participating CPD providers and advertisers. We do not supply your personally identifying information to participating providers or advertisers but you should be aware that our server may automatically collect information, such as your IP address, your browser type and language, and the date and time of your visit, to helps us track users’ movements around our site and understand trends, and that we or participating CPD providers and advertisers may assign your computer one or more cookies or use standard Internet tools to collect information that tracks your use of our/their websites and enables us/them to customize our/their services and advertisements. You may delete or decline cookies and other standard internet tools by changing your browser settings, although if you do so, some of the features or services of our website may not function properly. We may, from time to time, employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Our employees, agents and contractors who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.  We may provide access to your personally identifiable information when legally required to do so, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of this web site, or to limit our legal liability and protect our rights. We will not share your personally identifiable information in ways not described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use. We may occasionally update our Privacy Statement to reflect changes in our practices and services. If we make material changes in the way we collect, use, or share your personal information, we will notify you by sending you an email to the email address you most recently provided to us and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our website.  If you have questions about this Privacy Statement, please contact us at support@cpdfile.com.
