To the extent that we make any personal information anonymous or we aggregate it with the personal information of others, then that information will no longer be considered to be personal information. Therefore, Medi-Messaging will be entitled to use and disclose personal information in any manner that it desires provided the personal information has been rendered anonymous or aggregated where that information cannot be attributed to any individual.
Set out below are certain circumstances where we may use personal information without obtaining any further consent:
Set out below are certain circumstances where we may disclose personal information without obtaining any further consent:
Our web servers collect the domain names, IP addresses and the activity of visitors. This information is aggregated for the purposes of measuring the number of visits, average time spent on the Medi-Messaging Application, pages viewed, and other similar purposes. Medi-Messaging uses this information to measure the use of the Medi-Messaging Application and to improve the content of the Medi-Messaging Application.
In order to use the Medi-Messaging Application, you may need to provide certain personal information including current addresses, phone numbers and place of employment.
A technology called cookies may be used on certain pages of the Medi-Messaging Application. A cookie is a tiny element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive. Cookies allow us to track visitors to the Medi-Messaging Application so we will know when they return. Cookies also allow us to provide the visitor with tailored information and services based on their previous visits. Cookies do not enable us to identify the visitor unless that visitor has previously provided personal information during a visit. If your browser permits, you may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies altogether. (See the documentation provided with your Internet browser for more information on cookies and how to disable them.)
As well, the law permits or requires the collection, use and disclosure of personal information without the knowledge or consent of the individual in a number of circumstances. We reserve the right to collect, use and disclose personal information in these circumstances without the knowledge or consent of the individual as the law may permit or require.
For legal and business purposes we may retain personal information for as long as it is reasonably needed. Upon expiry of the appropriate retention period, bearing in mind our reasonable legal and business requirements, personal information will either be destroyed in a secure manner or made anonymous. You should be aware that there are legally required minimum retention periods, which Medi-Messaging must and does observe.
Medi-Messaging recognizes its obligation to protect personal information in its possession and will make reasonable arrangements to secure that personal information against unauthorized access. These measures will be reasonable in the circumstance and may include providing access to only those individuals with a need to know the information, locked doors and/or filing cabinets and other physical and electronic security measures as well as contractual measures, such as non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements.
