Personally Identifiable Information
You have complete control over your personal information. In general, you can visit our web site without providing us with any personal information. However, you must be a member and we must have your personal information in order for us to grant you an access to our protected and secured site membership areas. This information may include registration data (your company name, your name, title, address, email address, phone number, fax number, state or provincial dealer license number, etc.), information request data and response data ("User Information").
We will identify the purposes for which personal information is collected by us at or before the time the information is collected.
YOUR FILE: Personal information is the information that relates to you, that identifies you as a customer of AgedStock, and that allows us to provide services and information directly to you. AgedStock will advise you when and why a file containing personal information is opened. We ask you for your personal information so that we can:
- understand your needs;
- determine if our products and services meet your needs;
- inform you about our products and services, or those of our AgedStock Members or partners, that we believe may be of interest to you; or
- comply with the law.
Of course, you can choose not to provide us with some or all of your personal information. However, this choice may not enable us to provide you with the product, service, or information that you requested or that could be offered to you.
Your knowledge and consent are required for the collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information. We only collect, use, or disclose personal information for purposes we believe you would consider appropriate under the circumstances. When you become a customer of AgedStock, we may use your name and address for general mailing purposes. We believe you would also expect us to contact you to advise you of new and existing services that may be of interest to you. From time to time, we will inform you of such services via direct marketing. Direct marketing material is usually delivered to you by mail, telephone or electronic means. You may choose not to receive these offers and have your name deleted from our direct marketing lists.
Third-Party Disclosure: The names, addresses and telephone numbers of our customers may be transmitted to a trusted third-party mailing service in order to inform you of products and services that we offer (or that we and our AgedStock Members or partners jointly offer) and that we believe may interest you. Depending on the circumstances, we may require our AgedStock Members or partners to have a policy in place that complies with the requirements of applicable federal or provincial privacy legislation in Canada and the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information.
Except as set out in this policy, or as required by law, AgedStock does not sell or disclose any of your personal information to any other organization and AgedStock will not transmit personal information to third parties without first obtaining your written consent to do so. AgedStock may, however, disclose information in the following cases:
- to our lawyer;
- to a police force, if required by law;
- to a person authorised by a law or collective agreement;
- to a government agency which can oblige us to do so;
- in emergency situations in which the life, health or safety of a customer is in danger;
- to all other persons authorised by law;
- to an authorised contractor providing service to you;
- to another person for the development, enhancement, marketing or provision of any of AgedStock's products or services on our behalf that we believe may be of interest to you;
- to an agent retained by AgedStock in connection with the collection of the your account;
- to credit grantors and reporting agencies;
- to a person who, in the reasonable judgement of AgedStock, is seeking information as your agent; or
- a third party or parties, where the customer consents to such disclosure.
We only collect the information that we need in order to deliver services and information to you. We do not use techniques to collect personally identifiable information about you without your knowledge.
Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention
We do not use or disclose your personal information for any purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with your consent or as required by law.
RETENTION: Your personal information is retained only as long as necessary for the fulfilment of those purposes. AgedStock does not keep your personal information if it is no longer needed for the purposes required or as required by law.
Your personal information is kept as accurate, complete, and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used.
We protect your personal information by using safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.
Our Web site takes every precaution to protect users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just 'surfing'. To learn more about SSL, follow this link http://www.thawte.com/corporate/.
If users have any questions about the security at our Web site, users can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
OUR EMPLOYEES' RESPONSIBILITIES: Each of our employees is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all personal information to which they have access. We keep our employees informed about our policies and procedures for protecting personal information. Where necessary, our employees are required to sign agreements to keep your personal information confidential.
All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use employee user identification codes and passwords to access this information in our secure administration system. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our users' information is protected.
KEEPING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION CONFIDENTIAL:
- Your personal information is secure within AgedStock. We have comprehensive security controls to protect against non-authorised access, use, alteration, duplication, destruction, or disclosure.
- We may use other partners to offer products and services. When we use the services of a third party specialised in mailing list treatment, or other service delivery, a confidentiality agreement has been signed beforehand.
- Our safeguards protect personal information against loss or theft, regardless of the format in which it is held.
- We have strict procedures in place with respect to destroying, deleting or disposing of personal information when it is no longer required for the purposes set out in this policy, or by law.
We will make our complete policies and practices relating to the management of your personal information readily available to you.
Upon request in writing, you will be informed of the existence, use, and disclosure of your personal information and you will be given access to that information. We will assist any customer who informs us that they need assistance in preparing a request concerning personal information. You may challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate.

Supplementation of Information
In order for our Web site to properly fulfil its obligation to users it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.
CREDIT CHECK: For example, to determine if users qualify for credit, we may use their company name, with their consent, to request a credit report. Once we determine a user's credit-worthiness, this document is destroyed.
