Your Privacy

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, other information when needed to provide a service you requested.

When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish NETalberta to remember your login and password. We don't automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website. Like many other commercial websites, the NETalberta website may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site.

NETalberta collects personal information when you register with NETalberta for a NETalberta account, when you use certain NETalberta products or services, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, or you submit an entry for a sweepstakes or other promotions, or when you submit your personal information to NETalberta for any other reason.

A login and a password is required to access certain NETalberta web pages. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and NETalberta. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by NETalberta to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, to track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.

Data Security

Your account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. We safeguard the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. In certain areas of our websites, NETalberta uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.

Third Party Sites

NETalberta's website contains links to other sites. NETalberta does not share your personal information with those websites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.

Our website may contain links to websites operated by other companies. Some of these third-party sites may be co-branded with a NETalberta logo, even though they are not operated or maintained by NETalberta. Although we choose our business partners carefully, NETalberta is not responsible for the privacy practices of web sites operated by third parties that are linked to our site. Once you have left our website, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third party website to determine how they will handle any information they collect from you.

How We Use Information Collected

NETalberta uses information for several general purposes: to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to personalize your experience on our website, to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you'd like to hear about either from us or from our business partners, and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. We may also use your information to send you, or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Your personal information may be shared with our other offices or subsidiaries. All such entities are governed by this Privacy Policy or are bound by the appropriate confidentiality and data transfer agreements.

Your personal information is never shared outside without your permission, except under conditions explained below. Inside NETalberta, data is stored in controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in the Canada or any other country where NETalberta, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.

NETalberta may send your personal information to other companies or people under any of the following circumstances: when we have your consent to share the information; we need to share your information to provide the product or service you have requested; we need to send the information to companies who work on behalf of NETalberta to provide a product or service to you (we will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose); or we want to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you'd like to hear about either from us or from our business partners (unless you have opted out of these types of communications). We will also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, to enforce our Terms of Use, or in urgent circumstances, to protect personal safety, the public or our websites.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

NETalberta will amend this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information we will make that information available by posting a notice on this site.
