This Site collects personal information such as name, company, address, phone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail addresses ("Personally Identifiable Information") from visitors who voluntarily submit a feedback/inquiry form, send electronic mail to Global Forum, register for events, subscribe to newsletters, submit resumes through the Site, or otherwise voluntarily submit such information to Global Forum through or because of the Site. Personally Identifiable Information collected through this Site is saved in Global Forum's contact database where it may be combined with pre-existing contact information in the database.
Global Forum does not collect Personally Identifiable Information about visitors except when specifically and knowingly provided by such individuals.
Personally Identifiable Information may be used by Global Forum to contact you regarding Global Forum's programs, products, and services.
Personally Identifiable Information may also be used by Global Forum to send you surveys regarding current services or potential new services that may be offered, as well as to send you newsletters, event notices and announcements, and promotional materials regarding Global Forum's programs, products, and services. If you no longer wish to receive such messages from Global Forum, please click here to unsubscribe or send a letter to Customer Service, Global Forum Executive Develpopment And Business Dirven Action Learning, 140 rue des Manoirs Gatineau, Quebec Canada J9J 2N2. Along these lines, please note that Global Forum complies with the CAN-SPAM Act.
Global Forum takes commercially appropriate measures to safeguard the Personally Identifiable Information that you share with us. As such, we use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the Personal Identifiable Information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Global Forum occasionally enlists vendors to provide services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those vendors with the Personally Identifiable Information that they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Global Forum may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, however, your Personally Identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number, etc.) is not transferred to the third party.
In certain instances (e.g., when Global Forum co-presents or co-sponsors an event with a third party), Global Forum may “rent” your Personally Identifiable Information to a particular third party, usually on a one-time basis. Global Forum only does so, however, through the intermediary of a vendor as referenced in paragraph 7 above. Such a vendor (who is, as noted in paragraph 7 above, required to maintain the confidentiality of your information) ensures that the third party in question never receives direct access to your Personally Identifiable Information.
In the event that Global Forum is involved in an acquisition event with another company (i.e., merger, sale of assets, etc.), such Personally Identifiable Information collected under this Policy will potentially be part of the assets transferred. In that instance, you will be notified via a notice on our Site for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control of such Personally Identifiable Information, with such notice also indicating whether your Personally Identifiable Information will be used in manner different from that stated at the time of collection. After receipt of such notice, you may (as you can at any time) remove such Personally Identifiable Information pursuant to paragraph 4 above.
Global Forum may access and/or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Global Forum or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Global Forum, including this Site; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Global Forum services or members of the public.
Except as noted above, Global Forum will not otherwise disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to third parties without your permission.
