1.Who are we?

2. What personal information do we collect?
Canadian privacy legislation defines personal information broadly as information about “an identifiable individual” or as information that allows an individual to be identified.

In addition, from time to time, we may ask you to provide us with more detailed information regarding your interests, occupation, and background. For example, we sometimes ask our customers to complete surveys in order to get a better sense of who they are and what issues, products or services may be of interest to them and our readership. Finally, from time to time, we may acquire demographic and other information about you (e.g. your occupation and interests) from an outside organisation, but only if you have previously agreed to allow such an organization to disclose the information to companies such as Stuart Gross.

9. Privacy and our website
Stuart Gross sometimes collects personal information through its website. In this section, we provide you with additional information regarding such collection.

Cookies – When an individual visitor accesses the Stuart Gross website, we may use a browser feature called a “cookie” to collect information such as the type of Internet browser and operating system the visitor uses, the domain name of the websites from which the visitor came, date and duration of the visit, number of visits, average time spent on our websites, pages viewed and number of cookies accumulated. A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that identifies the visitor’s browser, but not necessarily the visitor, to our computers each time our websites are visited. Unless a visitor specifically informs us (e.g. by enrolling for our services or sending us correspondence from the websites), we will not know who the individual visitors are. In addition to the identified purposes described in our Privacy Policy, we may use this website information and share it with other organizations with whom we have a commercial relationship to measure the use of our websites and to improve the functionality and content of the websites. Visitors can reset their browsers either to notify them when they have received a cookie or refuse to accept cookies. However, if a visitor refuses to accept cookies, he or she may not be able to use some of the features available on our websites.

Online Communications – In order to provide our website visitors with a product, service or information, visitors may voluntarily submit personal information to us for purposes such as asking a question, obtaining information, subscribing to, reviewing or downloading a publication, participating in contests and surveys. If you are known to Stuart Gross as a registered user of an online service, we may combine and store personal information about your use of our websites and the online information you have provided with certain other online and offline information we may have collected.

The voluntary disclosure of personal information in a chat room or on an bulletin board is not governed by this Privacy Policy. Any communications which are part of chat rooms or discussion boards are public and not private and you provide such information at your own risk. Although it is prohibited to use our forums as a source of email addresses for sending unfounded or unsolicited messages or spamming, others may still capture your email address and send you email messages if you post your email address and we cannot control such actions by others. We advise you to remain prudent and attentive at all times when you are on line on the Internet.

Appendix 1 : What are “fair information practices”?

In Canada, “fair information practices” with regards to your personal information are reflected in a series of principles developed by the Canadian Standards Association and incorporated into Canadian privacy legislation, designed to ensure that companies treat your personal information fairly, protect its confidentiality and provide the means by which individuals can maintain a reasonable level of control over how their personal information is collected, used and disclosed. Stuart Gross collects, uses and discloses your personal information by employing “fair information practices” as described in the following ten privacy principles:

Principle 1 – Accountability
Stuart Gross is responsible for personal information under its control and has designated a Chief Privacy Officer who is accountable for Stuart Gross’s compliance with this Privacy Policy and the Privacy Laws. Contact information for the Chief Privacy Officer is provided in the Contact Us section of this Privacy Policy. In addition, our accountability for the personal information we collect continues even if we disclose it to other organizations. For example, whenever we disclose your information to another organization (such as to one of our service providers), we will put in place contractual and other safeguards to help ensure that they appropriately protect your personal information.

Principle 2 – Identifying the Purposes for Collection of Personal Information
Stuart Gross will identify the purposes for which your personal information is collected at or before the time the personal information is collected. Some of the identified purposes for which Stuart Gross typically collects, uses and discloses personal information are described in Section 3 of this Privacy Policy. If we intend to collect, use or disclose your personal information for additional purposes, we will either revise this Privacy Policy (and provide you with notice) or seek your consent.

Principle 3 – Obtaining Consent for Collection, Use or Disclosure of Personal Information
We will obtain your informed consent for the collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information, except as permitted by law. For example, we ask that you provide us with your consent to collect, use and disclose your personal information for the purposes described in Section 3 of this Privacy Policy. You may withdraw consent at any time to some or all of the purposes indicated, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. Please note, however, that in some circumstances, we may not be able to provide you with our services if you withdraw your consent to our use of your personal information.

Principle 4 – Limiting Collection of Personal Information
Stuart Gross will limit the collection of personal information, both the amount and the type of information, to that which is necessary for the purposes identified by Stuart Gross. In addition, Stuart Gross will collect your personal information by fair and lawful means, and not by misleading or deceiving you about the purpose for which information is being collected.

Principle 5 – Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention of Personal Information
Stuart Gross will not use or disclose personal information for purposes other than the identified purposes for which it was collected, except with your consent or as required or permitted by law. Stuart Gross will retain your personal information only as long as necessary to fulfil the identified purposes.

Principle 6 – Accuracy of Personal Information
Stuart Gross will endeavour to ensure that your personal information will be as accurate, complete and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. Stuart Gross will update personal information as and when necessary to fulfill the identified purposes or upon notification from the subject individual. Stuart Gross will not routinely update personal information, unless such process is necessary to fulfill the identified purposes. If ever your contact and/or other personal information changes, please feel free to contact us, so that we can update our records.

Principle 7 – Security Safeguards
Stuart Gross will protect your personal information by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. For example, the computer servers on which we store your personal information are protected by firewalls and other industry standard security features. In addition, your personal information is only made available to our employees and service providers who have a “need to know” in order to offer you our services or otherwise fulfil the purposes identified in Section 3 above.

Principle 8 – Openness Concerning Policies and Practices
Stuart Gross will make readily available to you specific information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information. For example, the most recent version of this Privacy Policy will always be available on the Stuart Gross website at www.Stuart Gross.com and upon request to the Chief Privacy Officer using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section.

Principle 9 – Individual Access to Personal Information
Upon written request, subject to certain exceptions, Stuart Gross will inform you of the existence, use, and disclosure of your personal information and will give you access to that information. If access is denied, Stuart Gross will notify you in writing, give reasons for the denial, and inform you of the recourses open to you. If access is granted, Stuart Gross will give you a reasonable opportunity to review your personal information. You will be able to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate.

Principle 10 – Challenging Compliance
