Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. It is Santé Veritas Holdings Inc.'s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect, use and disclose while operating our website. Accordingly, we have developed this privacy policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate, disclose and otherwise make use of personal information. Personal information means any information about an identifiable individual. We have outlined our privacy policy below. This privacy policy forms part of our terms of service. By using our website, you acknowledge that you have read and understand this privacy policy and hereby consent to the collection, use and disclosure of any personal or non-personal information you submit to us (via this website, by email, via telephone or by other means) in accordance with the terms of this privacy policy.  You can withdraw your consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information at any time. However, if you choose to do so, we may not be able to provide you with what you request from us or through the website effectively.

  • We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned. We collect information directly from you (e.g., when you contact us to request more information) or indirectly, through the use of passive tracking devices.
  • Like many other websites, we may engage passive tracking technologies and analytics tools to monitor and collection information relating to activities in our website, including the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider (ISP), when you access the website, the Internet address of the website from which you linked to our website, your operating system, the pages you visit on our website, and any content you download from our website.
  • We may also use Cookies to understand website usage and to improve our website, and make the website more convenient as you use our website. “Cookies” are small bits of information that are transferred to and stored in separate files within your computer or your mobile phone browser. A Cookie may remain on your computer, phone or browser after your browsing session finishes. You may choose to decline or disable Cookies if your browser permits, but if you choose to do so you may not be able to access certain features or functionality on our website.
  • Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected. We collect personal information from you to:
    • Respond to your requests for information;
    • Better understand your preferences and provide you with newsletters and other tailored offers; and
    • Conduct analyses and evaluations to improve our website, services and marketing communications.
  • We will collect and use personal information solely for fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other ancillary purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.
  • We will not sell, license, share, or rent the information to others in any way other than in accordance with this privacy policy and terms of service.
  • We may share the information we collect from you with our parent, affiliate and subsidiary companies, business partners, real estate agents, real estate brokers, and other third parties for the purposes described in this privacy policy, including to communicate with you to provide you with information that we believe might be of interest to you (jointly “Service Providers”). These Service Providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements.
  • Occasionally, we may use Service Providers located outside of Canada to process and/or store personal information for us. Please note that information in the custody of these Service Providers may be subject to access by the law enforcement authorities of those jurisdictions in which the service providers are located. If you would like more information about these service providers, please contact us at the information below.
  • We also reserve the right to disclose your Personal Information under certain circumstances, including where authorized or required by law, when you have consented to the disclosure, or when we believe we need to disclose information to protect our rights or the rights of others.
  • In the event our business undergoes a fundamental change such as, for example, a sale or financing, merger, transfer of all or a portion of our business or assets (“Business Change”), we may disclose your personal information to the counterparties to the transaction and their professional advisors as necessary for them to conduct due diligence and to complete the transaction, provided that the counterparties and their professional advisors are required to maintain the personal information as confidential and provided that any successor to our business may only use and disclose your personal information for those purposes for which you have provided consent to us.
  • Personal information should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date. If you submit personal information to us, you are responsible for ensuring that the information provided is accurate and complete.
  • If you wish to access, correct or update the information we hold about you, please contact us using the information below. We will take reasonable steps to correct or update your information.
  • Your rights to access are not absolute. We may deny access when required or authorized by law. For example, we may deny access when granting access would have an unreasonable impact on other people’s privacy or when necessary to protect our confidential commercial information and the requested information cannot be severed from the balance of the record in which it is contained. If we deny your request for access to, or refuse a request to correct information, we shall explain why.
  • We will protect personal information by using reasonable physical, technological and organizational security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. While we will take such steps to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Please be aware that email is not a 100% secure medium for sending any personal or confidential information to us.
  • We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.
  • We will only retain personal information for as long as necessary for the fulfilment of those purposes. We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained. Santé Veritas Holdings Inc. may change this privacy policy from time to time at Santé Veritas Holdings Inc.'s sole discretion. We are not required to inform you about any such updates and it is your responsibility to check the website periodically for any such updates. Your continued use of our website following an update to this privacy policy means that you provide your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as set out in the updated privacy policy.
