Purpose of Personal Information
The purpose for which INKStreams Corporation collects personal information will be identified at or before the time the information is collected. INKStreams Corporation will not use personal information for any other purpose than identified at or before the time of collection.

INKStreams Corporation seeks consent for all personal information we collect, use and disclose through information provided to individuals prior to collection, or at the time of collection.

If you have voluntarily provided information, you have consented to the collection, use and disclosure of your personally identifiable information as described in this privacy policy. As required by the CSA Model Code, INKStreams Corporation will not use personal information for any purpose other than that for which you consented.

INKStreams Corporation does not collect, use or disclose personal information of individuals except when individuals give consent and provide the information on a voluntary basis. There may be occasions where more specific personal information is necessary for us to proceed with a request for information, or provide you with a product or service. In such cases, we will provide you with a description on the information we need. In all cases, INKStreams Corporation limits the amount and type of information collected to only the personal information that is required to provide the individual with the requested information, product, or service. We collect only information that is voluntarily provided by you and undertake that such information will be kept confidential and will only be shared with those individuals or organizations that require it to process your request for information, or provide you with a product or service.

We review the personal information in our possession every six to twelve months and retain personal information only if it is necessary to provide the individual with the requested product, service or information or for follow-up action and delete or destroy this information after that time. In some cases, however, legal reporting and retention requirements necessitate that INKStreams Corporation retain information for a specific amount of time. In general, INKStreams Corporation retains personal information for a period not longer than one year from the collection of the information.

We store personal information in electronic and physical files that are secure. Our security measures include secure on and off site storage, restricted access to records and data processing equipment, password protocols and encryption and security software. Unfortunately, data access over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us electronically. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best efforts to ensure its security on our servers.
