Guavy Inc. recognises the importance of protecting your privacy and abides by the Canadian Privacy Principles.
When we refer to our ‘website’, we are referring to the Guavy website on any device, social media sites, emails we send, Guavy apps, and any new technology we implement on any of these platforms.
What information do we collect?
Because we strive to provide our website users with personalised services showing the information most relevant to them, from time to time we request and store some private information about you. We will only use that information in accordance with this policy.
We collect and hold information about you when you access and use our services through our website. The types of information we keep on record will depend on the type of product or service requested by you.
We may keep a record of the following types of information about you:
The Facebook profile information identified in the ‘Log in’ form, if you choose to log in or sign up to our website using Facebook;
We do not seek to collect sensitive information (for example health information or information about your racial or ethnic origin or any criminal record), unless it is necessary for our business purposes. If we do have to collect sensitive information, we will do so in accordance with the Canadian Privacy Principles.
During our dealings with you, we may gather information about you relating to all products and services that we or our business partners provide to you. This information is used to help us decide how we can improve our service delivery to you, or to provide you with information that we think may be of interest to you.
Your web browser may automatically accept cookies and local storage on your computer.
Guavy also works with selected third parties in providing you services that we think may be of interest to you. Guavy may attach a cookie to your browser during your visit to our websites. These cookies may be used to provide relevant advertising to you by us or third parties, or to determine what marketing or advertising is delivered to you on our website and on other sites.
You can usually modify your settings to decline cookies and/or local storage if you wish. Note that if you do that, this might stop you from being able to use all the services on our website. It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, disable local storage or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. Each browser is different, so check the ‘Help’ menu of your browser to learn how to change your preferences. You need not give us any of the personal information that we may request. However, without that information, we may not be able to fulfil your request or provide you with the services you want.
Information collected for particular services
We use your personal information to:
Information collected by cookies or tracking tags on our website may be disclosed in a non- identified or aggregated format to third parties including website analytics services (e.g. Google Analytics), data management platform operators, advertisers, referral partners and media agencies. We do not share your personal information with our partners unless it is required for the provision of a particular website service, and we have disclosed this to you and you have consented.
Where we share your personal information
We must get your consent before we disclose your personal information. You can give us your consent expressly or it may be implied by your conduct.
By using our services you are deemed to have consented to our use, disclosure and other matters in relation to your personal information, as set out in this policy.
We may share your personal information:
We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
How do we store personal information?
We provide a robust level of security when you use our website or when you sign in as a visitor to our office. We have physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information which is held by us.
Access to information stored electronically is restricted to staff and contractors whose job purpose requires access. We use secure methods to destroy or de-identify any personal information as soon as the law permits, provided the information is no longer needed by us for any purpose. Data is retained for up to 7 years as required by law. We continuously monitor and update our website security to minimise the risk of hacking.
Data used and stored by Guavy is mostly hosted in Canada. From time to time Guavy may store (disclose) your personal information on servers in overseas web hosting facilities.
The Canadian Privacy Principles require that we take reasonable steps, dependent on the circumstances of that personal information, to ensure that the overseas service provider to whom personal information is disclosed does not breach Canadian privacy laws (the “Requirement”).
When you provide us with your personal information you consent to the disclosure of your information to an overseas provider. Your consent to this disclosure means that the Requirement does not apply and Guavy will not be held accountable under the Privacy Act for any breaches of the Privacy Act by the overseas provider.
Where commercially feasible, Guavy will contract with hosting providers using services in Canada, or who agree to comply with the Canadian Privacy Principles.

Correction of information
We try to ensure that all information we hold about you which we collect, use or disclose is accurate, complete and up to date. You must promptly notify us if there are any changes to your personal information.
