WEB PRIVACY STATEMENT
New Urban Registry considers the protection of the privacy of all customers and visitors to our sites to be of utmost importance. Therefore, New Urban Registry has adopted this policy to promote the principles of collection, disclosure and consent in order to build trust in visitors to our website.
New Urban Registry reserves the right to make modifications and updates to this Privacy Statement at any time to properly implement new products and services, to match obligations established by law and to improve our privacy practices.
As a Registry and Paralegal Services provider, we will require personal information in order to provide the service. We will use this information solely for the purposes in which it is intended; namely, the provision of services to you. We assume that you provide us consent to use personal information for such purposes. If your personal information is to be used for purposes other than processing your service request, New Urban Registry will inform you of the purposes for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information at or prior to the time of collection. You always have the option to withhold your consent to the collection, use and distribution of your personal information or to withdraw your consent at a later stage. But remember: We cannot undo a service request, or delete information from a Government database. Even a mistake will be recorded in the database, together with the “fix”, if any. Where a client chooses not to provide us with permission to collect, use, or disclose personal information we may not have sufficient information to provide you with our services. When in doubt, ask us.
What happens to information entered on New Urban Registry’s website, faxes, or e-mails?
Anyone can visit our website anonymously. In order to apply for an account, you must make arrangements with our Office Manager. Account information will remain confidential except in the case of non-payment of accounts, in which case it will be used for collection purposes, including legal action if necessary.
While using our websites or services you may be asked to provide certain personally identifiable information. The Government of Alberta requires that some of this information must be kept for specified periods of time. Normally, it is evidence that New Urban Registry performed a service request for you. The information is normally entered into a Government of Alberta database. We hold such information in “secure” storage as required.
If a service request is made by internet, email, or fax, we presume that the information may be used, or shared, as required for the purpose of performing the service. If you do not consent to the use of such information for that purpose, let us know at the time of the service request. We will let you know whether we are able to perform your service under such constraints. Generally, we will assume your consent.
It is important to remember that information that you provide to us may be entered into Government of Alberta databases which are open to the public. New Urban Registry cannot make any assurances to you regarding who may conduct a legitimate search for this information. This information may be „personal‟, but it is within the public domain.
From time to time New Urban Registry may perform a survey to obtain feedback of the site visitors, in which we ask you to volunteer demographic information which will only be used for internal market research and product development. It is always your decision, whether you participate, or not.
New Urban Registry may use your e-mail or mailing address to send you information about news, events or new products you might benefit from. Should you no longer wish to receive this type of information please feel free to contact our Office Manager and ask to have your contact information removed from the mailing list.
The purposes regarding the collection, use and disclosure will be specified prior or at to the time of collection. When in doubt, please ask. The personal information you provide to us will be retained by New Urban Registry only for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected or as required by law. Information filed in the Government of Alberta databases will remain there indefinitely.
New Urban Registry will not reveal, sell or share the personal information, such as your name, address user ID or e-mail address and other information provided by you. Occasionally New Urban Registry may trace traffic patterns of website users for our own records (or third party suppliers). We may need this to track patterns, or to investigate improprieties. For statistic purposes, we only gather domain names and browser types, but no personal information.
At your request, New Urban Registry will advise you what personal information we have in our possession or control about you, what it is being used for and to whom and why it has been disclosed. In case of investigations of abusive and illegal activities, New Urban Registry reserves the right to collaborate with local, provincial or national authorities by disclosing personal information.
In order to provide excellent service, it is important that all personal information provided by the client is accurate, complete and up-to-date. Please advise us of any changes to your personal information that may be relevant to the services we provide for you.
How is security dealt with at New Urban Registry?
New Urban Registry recognizes the importance of conducting e-business within a confidential and secure environment. However, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure.
Consequently, we cannot guarantee the security of the information transferred to or received from us, although we strive to protect personal information. Nor can we guarantee that our service files kept in „secure‟ premises will not be compromised –it is not kept under armed guard! We make every commercially reasonable effort to protect all information. If you require enhanced security, please tell us: We may be able to provide that service for an additional fee. But do not assume that we have made such arrangements unless in writing.
