Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how MFA Global Inc. and its affiliates (collectively, “The MFA Companies”, “MFA”, “us” or “we”) collect, use, share, disclose and protect information obtained from you via this web site (the “Site”).

Information We Collect

Personal Information. You may visit our Site without disclosing any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”). However, you may also choose to provide certain Personal Information, such as your name, address, telephone number and/or email address on this Site. We may collect this Personal Information from you in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when you subscribe to receive emails from us, when you contact us, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our the Site.

Visitors can also send email to MFA through the Site. These emails will contain the visitor’s screen name and email address, as well as any additional information the visitor includes in the email. MFA’s intention is not to seek any sensitive information (including, but not limited to, ethnic origin, religious beliefs, physical or mental health, sexual orientation or criminal record) through the Site unless legally required. If you choose to provide sensitive information for any reason, MFA accepts your explicit consent to use that information in the ways described in this privacy statement or as described at the point where you choose to disclose this information.

Information We Use

We use Personal Information provided to us through this Site for the purpose for which it is provided, such as, for example, to process your request to register for an event or to have us send you certain information and content. We may also use your Personal Information to provide you with information we think may be of interest to you. This information may include details about our professional services, publications we offer and/or events that we sponsor. With your consent, we may send you this information electronically at the electronic address you provided.

Each of our marketing emails includes an automated way for you to opt out (unsubscribe) from that particular communication or from all marketing emails sent by MFA. To opt out, please follow the instructions on the email you receive, or contact us directly as outlined below.

We may also use Personal Information for other purposes with your consent, and for other purposes as required or allowed by applicable law.

Non-Personal Information. We may collect certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit the Site. Aggregate and non-personal information does not relate to a single, identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many users visited our Site and the pages of the Site that were accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our Site to the needs of our visitors. We use this information to improve the performance of our Site.

Information We Share and Disclose 

We do not sell, rent, trade or otherwise disclose Personal Information concerning visitors to the Site, except as described herein. We may share Personal Information provided by our Site visitors with third parties we have retained to perform services on our behalf as well as to our affiliates. In addition, we may disclose Personal Information about you if we are required to do so by law or pursuant to legal process, in order to respond to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials, and/or when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. We also reserve the right to transfer any Personal Information we have about you in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.

Some of our service providers may be located outside Canada and your Personal Information may be transferred to these other jurisdictions and become subject to the laws of foreign jurisdictions, including those that may grant access to your Personal Information to the authorities of such foreign jurisdictions.

Data Retention

The file containing your Personal Information will be kept at our premises or on our servers or those of our service providers, and only employees who require it for the purposes of their duties will have access to this file.

We retain your personal information for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. Contact information such as mailing list information is kept until a user unsubscribes to our mailing lists or requests that we delete their contact information. Resumes are deleted when they are either no longer under consideration or are considered outdated by MFA.

Regardless of the provisions above, we may retain your personal information where such retention is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.

When personally identifiable information is retained, MFA assumes responsibility for keeping an accurate record of the information once a visitor has submitted and verified the data. MFA does not assume responsibility for verifying the ongoing accuracy of the content of personal information. If MFA is informed that any personal data collected through the Site is no longer accurate, MFA will make appropriate corrections based on the updated information provided by you.

Safeguards

We have put in place appropriate storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against the unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure and destruction of your Personal Information.

Links to Third-Party Web Sites 

This Site may contain links to external web sites operated by third parties. Please be aware that these third-party web sites are governed only by their own privacy policies. We cannot be responsible for these policies.

Cookies

Some pages on this Site may use “cookies,” which are small data files that the Site may place on your system for identification purposes. These files are used for site registration and customization the next time you visit us. Your Web browser may allow you to be notified when you are receiving a cookie, giving you the choice to accept it or not. You can choose whether or not to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. By not accepting cookies, some pages may not fully function and you may not be able to access certain information on this site.

Controlling Your Personal Information

Each of MFA’s emails includes an automated way for you to unsubscribe (“opt out”) from a specific MFA communication or from all marketing communications sent by MFA. To unsubscribe, simply click on the unsubscribe link in our communications to you.

You are also legally entitled to request details of the personally identifiable information we are retaining about you. If at any time you would like MFA to rectify, erase or restrict the processing of your personally identifiable information, access your personally identifiable information, exercise your right to data portability or withdraw your consent to processing, please contact us.

Updates to This Privacy Policy 

We may update or change this Privacy Policy from time to time and without prior notice to you. Please review the Privacy Policy each time you use the Site. By your continued use of the Site, you imply consent to the terms of the revised Privacy Policy.
