Privacy Policy

The Independent.ca Online Limited (“TheIndependent.ca“) takes your right to privacy seriously. This privacy policy deals with personally-identifiable information (referred to as “data” below) that may be collected by TheIndependent.ca. This policy does not apply to other entities that are not owned or controlled by TheIndependent.ca, nor does it apply to persons that are not employees or agents of TheIndependent.ca, or that are not under TheIndependent.ca’s control. Please take time to read TheIndependent.ca’s Terms of Use.

Collection of data

As on many web sites, TheIndependent.ca may automatically receive general information that is contained in server log files, such as your IP address, and cookie information.

Use of data

Data may be used to customize and improve your user experience on TheIndependent.ca. Efforts will be made to prevent your data being made available to third parties unless (i) provided for otherwise in this Privacy Policy; (ii) your consent is obtained, such as when you choose to opt-in or opt-out for the sharing of data; (iii) a service provided on our site requires interaction with a third party, or is provided by a third party, such as an application service provider; (iv) pursuant to legal action or law enforcement; (v) it is found that your use of TheIndependent.ca violates the TheIndependent.ca’s policy, terms of service, or other usage guidelines, or if it is deemed reasonably necessary by TheIndependent.ca to protect the site editor’s legal rights and/or property; or (vi) TheIndependent.ca is purchased by a third party, in which case that third party will be able to use the data in the same manner as set forth in this policy. In the event you choose to use links displayed on TheIndependent.ca to visit other web sites, you are advised to read the privacy policies published on those sites.

Cookies

Like many web sites, TheIndependent.ca sets and uses cookies to enhance your user experience — to remember your personal settings, for instance. Advertisements may display on TheIndependent.ca and, if so, may set and access cookies on your computer; such cookies are subject to the privacy policy of the parties providing the advertisement. However, the parties providing the advertising do not have access to TheIndependent.ca’s cookies. These parties usually use non-personally-identifiable or anonymous codes to obtain information about your visits to TheIndependent.ca.

Changes to this privacy policy

Changes may be made to this policy from time to time. You will be notified of substantial changes to this policy either by through the posting of a prominent announcement on TheIndependent.ca, and/or by a mail message sent to the e-mail address you have provided, which is stored within your user settings.

No Guarantees

While this privacy policy states standards for maintenance of data, and while efforts will be made to meet the said standards, TheIndependent.ca is not in a position to guarantee compliance with these standards. There may be factors beyond TheIndependent.ca’s control that may result in disclosure of data. Consquently, TheIndependent.ca offers no warranties or representations as regards maintenance or non-disclosure of data.

Interpretation of this Privacy Policy

Any interpretation associated with this Privacy Policy will be made by The Independenat.ca’s designated Privacy Officer. This Privacy Policy includes examples but is not intended to be restricted in its application to such examples; therefore where the word “including” is used, it shall mean “including without limitation”.


This Privacy Policy does not create or confer upon any individual any rights, or impose upon The Independenat.ca any obligations outside of, or in addition to, any rights or obligations imposed by Canada’s federal and provincial privacy laws, as applicable. Should there be, in a specific case, any inconsistency between this Privacy Policy and Canada’s federal and provincial privacy laws, as applicable, this Privacy Policy shall be interpreted, in respect of that case, to give effect to, and comply with, such privacy laws.
