Privacy Statement

Last Revised August 21, 2009

This Privacy Statement describes the practices that Talcura Technologies Inc. (“Talcura") follows with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information provided by website users, employees, contractors and agents and existing/prospective customers. We're committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful, safe, online experience that you can get anywhere.

Our website (www.talcura.com) may contain links to other websites that are provided and maintained exclusively by third parties. We carefully select the third party websites to which we link; however, as such third party websites are not subject to this Privacy Statement, we are not responsible for either their content or privacy practices. We encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.

By using our website, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Statement.

Talcura operates on the following privacy principles:
  • Whenever we collect personal information about you, we will explain how we intend to use it, either at the time we collect the information or earlier. We will limit the information we collect to what we need for the identified purpose(s) and we will only use it for such purpose(s). If we propose to use your personal information for a purpose not previously identified, we will identify the new purpose to you prior to our use and confirm your consent in respect of the new purpose. Generally, this information is requested when you register for a product demonstration, ask for more information, when applying to become a partner, or apply for a job.
  • Talcura collects and uses your Personal Information to operate and improve its sites and services. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the sites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences. We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. We may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from Talcura and its affiliates. Personal Information collected on Talcura sites and services may be stored and processed in Canada, the United States or any other country in which Talcura or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers maintain facilities.
  • Talcura’s website, like many other commercial websites, uses a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how our website is used. A cookie is a small data file that a website can send to a browser, which may then be stored on your computer system as an anonymous "tag" that identifies your computer but not you. When you browse our website, we may use a cookie to help us provide you with better customer service by (i) identifying your browser as one that has visited our website before; and (ii) saving and remembering any preferences that you may have set during previous visits to our website. Cookies help make your visit to our website more "user friendly". Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or obtain your e-mail address. Only Talcura is able to use our cookies to determine your identity. Any personal information collected about you through our use of cookies will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Statement. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, which will give you the opportunity to decide whether you want to accept the cookie or not. Note that if you reject cookies, it may not be possible for you to use Talcura services which require registration.
  • You may request a copy of your personal information in our possession by submitting a written request; satisfactory identification and proof of entitlement to our legal department. You have the right to know how we collected your personal information; how we are using it; and, to whom it may have been disclosed (with the exception of disclosures to government bodies or our service providers in connection with the conduct of our business in the ordinary course). If you find any errors in your personal information, please contact us as soon as possible (by phone, fax, mail or e-mail) and we will make the appropriate corrections. On occasion, we may decline your request for access to personal information within our possession or control. For example, this may occur if providing access to you would be likely to reveal personal information about a third party and the information cannot be segregated, or if the information has been collected during the investigation of a legal matter or cannot be disclosed for other legal reasons, such as a non-disclosure agreement. If we deny your request for access, we will advise you in writing of the reason for our refusal so that you may decide whether you wish to challenge our decision.
  • Except as described in this Privacy Statement, we will not disclose your Personal Information outside of Talcura and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent. Some Talcura sites or services may allow you to choose to share your Personal Information with select Talcura partners so that they can contact you about their products, services or offers. Some Talcura services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such services, both Talcura and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services. We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
  • Talcura may disclose Personal 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; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Talcura, our site or other Talcura users, and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of other stakeholders and public users.
Changes to This Privacy Statement
We will occasionally update this Privacy Statement to reflect changes in our services and customer feedback. When we post changes to this Privacy Statement, we will revise the "last revised” date at the top of this Privacy Statement. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to be informed of how Talcura is protecting your information.

If at any time you believe that Talcura has not adhered to these principles, please notify us by e-mail to privacy@talcura.com and we will use all commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and correct the problem.
