Privacy Policy

CHT Business Media is committed to protecting the privacy of all those who provide us with their contact information while using Canadian Accountant. This policy describes the ways that personally identifiable and anonymous information about website users is collected, how that information might be shared, and how someone can request changes to the way their personal information is used or shared.

Collection of User Details and Information

We may collect personally identifiable and/or anonymous information from you in the course of your use of Canadian Accountant as further described in this Privacy Policy. Personally identifiable information is information that can identify you, such as your full name, email address, postal address, telephone number, and fax number. In some cases, you may provide information to us, and in other cases, information about you or your activities may be automatically collected, as further described below.

We collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us when you sign up for email newsletters  or otherwise communicate with us or interact with Canadian Accountant. We do not engage in financial transactions with our readers, other than advertisers, and would not contact you for financial information. We are not responsible for the information you volunteer about yourself in posted comments .

Cookies and Other Automatic Collection

Like most website operators, we use cookies (small data files stored on your computer by your web browser upon visiting a website), analytics and similar technologies to operate efficiently and as intended. Through such technologies we gather information about you, such as your browser type, operating system, IP address, mobile device identification number, the sites visited before and after Canadian Accountant, and about your interactions with our site, such as the time and date when you viewed a page, which advertisements you have clicked on, and whether you filled out an online form.

You may set your browser to block all cookies, including  that of Canadian Accountant, while using our website, in which case some aspects of the website may not function properly, or you may set your browser to block third-party cookies and allow first-party cookies, which would allow us but not third parties to collect such information while you are on Canadian Accountant. In addition, some browsers may allow you to block certain tracking codes. Please refer to your browser’s documentation if you wish to block some or all cookies and/or similar tools.

Canadian Accountant includes social media features, such as the Facebook share button. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our sites. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Keeping User Details and Information Secure

CHT Business Media employs reasonable precautions, including appropriate technical, administrative, and physical procedures, to protect personal information from loss, misuse, or alteration. We contract with a third-party company, Agility CMS, a cloud-based content management system for building and managing responsive websites and apps, to provide our platform and web-hosting. Please contact Agility CMS for more information.

When we contract with other companies to provide us with services, we only share personal information with those that we believe share our commitment to privacy and information security. However, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for the actions of these parties.

Canadian Accountant contains links to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices on other sites. When following a link to another site you should read that site’s privacy policy.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the “last updated” date below. For changes to this Privacy Policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of your personal information, we will attempt to notify you by email of the change. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy from time to time to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. If you continue to use our site or services after we have attempted to contact you about material changes to the Privacy Policy, we will assume that you agree to the changes.
