privacy policy

Welcome to www.fengshuiconnections.ca (the "Site").

We understand that privacy online is important to users of our Site, especially when conducting business.

This statement governs our privacy policies with respect to those users of the Site ("Visitors") who visit without transacting business and Visitors who register to transact business on the Site and make use of the various services offered by www.fengshuiconnections.ca (collectively, "Services") ("Authorized Members").

The Community Portal is managed and owned by Feng Shui Connections ("FSC").

In order to comply with our obligations, FSC must obtain your consent to the use of your personal information. Please ensure therefore that you read the following statement carefully. Registration will be taken as consent to certain uses of your information.

"Personally Identifiable Information" refers to any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains, including, but not limited to, name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, financial profiles, social security number, and credit card information. Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (that is, without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.

What Personally Identifiable Information is collected?
We may collect basic user profile information from all of our Visitors. We collect the following additional information from our Authorized Members: the names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, business names, and other contact information of our Authorized Members.

How does the Site use Personally Identifiable Information?
We use Personally Identifiable Information to customize the Site, to make appropriate service offerings, and to fulfill information requests on the Site. We may email Visitors and Authorized Members about research or purchase and selling opportunities on the Site or information related to the subject matter of the Site. We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to contact Visitors and Authorized Members in response to specific inquiries, or to provide requested information.

With whom may the information be shared?
Personally Identifiable Information about Authorized Members may be shared with other Authorized Members who wish to evaluate potential transactions with other Authorized Members.  Some Personally Identifiable Information about Authorized Members, including name, address, phone and e-mail address, forms part of the FSC Membership Directory which is available to all Authorized Members. We may share aggregated information about our Visitors, including the demographics of our Visitors and Authorized Members, with our affiliated agencies and third party vendors. We also offer the opportunity to "opt out" of being listed in the Membership Directory, receiving information or being contacted by us or by any agency acting on our behalf.

How is Personally Identifiable Information stored?
Personally Identifiable Information collected by www.fengshuiconnections.ca is securely stored and is not accessible to third parties or employees of www.fengshuiconnections.ca except for use as indicated above. FSC cannot guarantee that your information will remain secure from unauthorised access.

What choices are available to Visitors regarding collection, use and distribution of the information?
Visitors and Authorized Members may opt out of receiving unsolicited information from or being contacted by us and/or our vendors and affiliated agencies by responding to emails as instructed, or by contacting us at info@fengshuiconnections.ca

Are Cookies Used on the Site?
In order to become an Authorized Member of the Community Portal, you must have 'Cookies' enabled. Cookies may be used for a variety of reasons. We may use Cookies to obtain information about the preferences of our Visitors and the services they select. We also may use Cookies to allow an Authorized Member to re-access member only pages during a web session. This mechanism is employed solely for your convenience and for no other purpose. If an Authorized Member is logged on and the site is unused for a period of time, we will automatically log the Authorized Member off.

How does www.fengshuiconnections.ca use login information?
www.fengshuiconnections.ca does not require a login on the website for general site visitors. Authorized Members are those visitors who have registered with www.fengshuiconnections.ca and are required to login in order to gain access to information and services not available to unregistered visitors.

What partners or service providers have access to Personally Identifiable Information from Visitors and/or Authorized Members on the Site?
www.fengshuiconnections.ca has entered into and will continue to enter into partnerships and other affiliations with a number of vendors. Such vendors may have access to certain Personally Identifiable Information on a need to know basis for evaluating Authorized Members for service eligibility. Our privacy policy does not cover their collection or use of this information.

FSC will under no circumstances give access to your registration information to any third party for any purpose, either commercial or otherwise.

Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information to comply with the law. We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information in order to comply with a court order or subpoena or a request from a law enforcement agency to release information. We will also disclose Personally Identifiable Information when reasonably necessary to protect the safety of our Visitors and Authorized Members.

How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?
Visitors and Authorized Members may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us at info@fengshuiconnections.ca

Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?
We provide Visitors and Authorized Members with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site's database by contacting info@fengshuiconnections.ca. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor's entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.

Public vs Confidential Information
As an Authorized Member, you acknowledge that all of your submissions and postings to the public portion of the website are public and not private information. Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information.

Generally, any communication which you post to the website is considered to be non-confidential.

The foregoing grants shall include the right to exploit any proprietary rights in such communication, including but not limited to rights under copyright, trademark, service mark or patent laws under any relevant jurisdiction. You agree to waive any moral rights which you may have in such material. FSC reserves the right to refuse to post and/or remove any material sent or posted by you.

What happens if the Privacy Policy Changes?
We will let our Visitors and Authorized Members know about changes to our privacy policy by posting such changes on the Site. However, if we are changing our privacy policy in a manner that might cause disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information that a Visitor or Authorized Member has previously requested not be disclosed, we will contact such Visitor or Authorized Member to allow such Visitor or Authorized Member to prevent such disclosure.
