8. Security of personal information
THE ALINKER ACADEMY endeavours to maintain appropriate safeguards and adequate physical, procedural and technical security with respect to our offices and information storage facilities so as to prevent any unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification of personal information.
Safeguards include securing physical documents and technological measures by way of secure access and encryption. THE ALINKER ACADEMY employees are authorized to access personal information based only on their need to deal with the information for the reason(s) for which it was obtained.
Safeguards are in place to ensure that the information is not disclosed or shared more widely than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. We also take measures to ensure the integrity of this information is maintained and to prevent its being lost or destroyed.
We protect personal information disclosed to third parties by contractual agreements stipulating the confidentiality of the personal information and the purposes for which it is to be used.
To ensure the integrity and privacy of the personal and credit card information you pass to us via the Internet when you make an online transaction, THE ALINKER ACADEMY has obtained a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Server Certificate, the industry standard with 128-bit encryption. All information collected within a secure page is encrypted while being transmitted to THE ALINKER ACADEMY’s secure server. The server is protected by a firewall that is regularly updated when new patches and fixes are released.
We may engage service providers to assist us with fulfilling the purposes for which personal information has been collected, used and disclosed, and, in some instances, these service providers may be located outside Canada. We only select service providers that protect personal information in a manner that is comparable to the protection we provide under our own privacy policies. However, personal information may be subject to, and accessed under, the laws of the countries in which our service providers operate. If you have any questions about our transfer of personal information to our service providers outside Canada, or if you would like to learn more about our privacy policies in that regard, please contact the THE ALINKER ACADEMY Privacy Officer at the contact information provided below.
