We at Spitz International are providing this Privacy Notice to explain the type of information that is collected on our website at www.spitz.ca (the “Site”) and how we use this information.
The Information We Collect:
We only collect personal information from our on-line visitors on a voluntary basis and we do not require any personal information for access to our sites. Where our website solicits personal information such as e-mail addresses, names and addresses, we use the voluntarily submitted information only to respond to our on-line visitors and for internal purposes, such as administering promotional contests.
The Site may also collect non-personal information from our online visitors (such as the user's type of browser, operating system and domain names). The non-personal information we collect enables us to track the total number of visitors to our site in an aggregate form, and helps us improve and update our site. Spitz International does not sell, rent, individually post online, or otherwise disclose any individual non-personal information to any unauthorized third parties.
With Whom We May Share Information:
We share aggregate, non-personally identifiable information about our users with advertisers, business partners, retail customers, sponsors, and with third parties who assist us in servicing you.
The Way We Use Information We Collect From Our Site:
You should assume, that all personal information you provide can be tracked on an individual basis by Spitz International, and that we may use the information provided to contact candidates seeking employment opportunities, administer on-line contests or otherwise respond to our on-line visitor’s queries about our products.
Links to Other Web Sites:
Users should be aware that when you are on the Site you have the option to link to other independent sites like the ones maintained by our affiliates, promotional agencies and retail customers. We have done this to allow you to find out more about us and our partners. However, linked sites are beyond our control. Once you have opted to g o to another site, data or solicited personal information may be collected by the site's host. You should rely upon privacy policies or statements associated with each site you visit. We encourage you to always be aware of where you are when you are online. Check the site to locate its policy and do not assume it is the same as our own.
Our Commitment to Data Security:
We take reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. We cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, that is the nature of the internet. Users must disclose information at their own risk.
