SocialCommons.ca is a website developed by the Marvyn Novick Legacy Group that also delivers newsletters and other content via email and makes similar content available to mobile users. We also operate Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter pages.
This policy does not apply to websites maintained by other companies or organizations to which we may link or who may link to us. We are not responsible for the actions and privacy policies of third party websites.
What kind of information do we gather about you?
The information we gather falls into two categories: 1) Personal information you voluntarily supply when you subscribe, complete a survey, or provide your email address, and 2) Non-personal aggregated information collected as you navigate and make use of our site.
If you choose to provide personal information, how will it be used and protected?
SocialCommons.ca may collect personal information from readers in connection with user engagement and feedback, e-mail subscriptions, registration for events and voluntary surveys. Data may be collected on our website or via email. Readers are primarily contacted via email, with links to online surveys. All survey data is reported and/or used in aggregate form only, and no personally identifiable information is ever released.
SocialCommons.ca has taken steps to keep all information received from our online visitors as secure as possible against unauthorized access and use. All personal information you provide us with is kept in a secure database and protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
How is non-personal aggregate Information collected from website visitors?
As is standard practice employed by many websites, we use “cookies” and other technologies to help us understand which areas of our website are the most useful, what pages our visitors are going to and how much time they spend there. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks.
Socialcommons.ca does not extract any personal information in this process, nor do we provide such information to third parties. Cookies allow us to improve the navigation process and to make the website experience more relevant and helpful; they also help us measure the traffic on our website so that we can assess the effectiveness of our education and outreach efforts.
What we do with the information we gather about you?
If you provide us with personal information in order to sign up for our newsletter, a free report, to register for an event, or become a supporter, we will only use that information as follows:
