2 – Use of Personal Information
The personal information we collect from you will be used by NIRIX and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates to provide the service or carry out the transaction you have requested or authorized. This may include using the personal information for the following purposes:
- To provide you with important information about the product or service that you are using, including critical updates and notifications;
- To make a site or service easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information or by customizing the site or service to your particular interests or preferences;
- To improve the product or service and to provide better customer service to users.
The privacy statement of the specific product or service you are using will disclose how the personal information that is collected will be used.
NIRIX does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. NIRIX may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as packaging, sending and delivering purchases and other mailings, answering customer questions about products or services, processing event registration, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies with the personal information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
NIRIX may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on NIRIX or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NIRIX and its family of web sites, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of NIRIX, its web sites, or the public.
NIRIX accepts credit card payments through the Moneris online Hosted Pay page system. This is a secure transaction system hosted by Moneris, one of the largest Merchant Services Providers in Canada. Credit card numbers are not stored on any of NIRIX’s servers.
Personally identifiable information collected by NIRIX may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which NIRIX or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or agents maintain facilities.
