This online and mobile privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") explains how information is collected, used and disclosed by Cardiovascular Imaging Core Laboratory and its subsidiaries, if any (collectively, "CIRCL", "we", "us", or "our"), and applies to information we collect when you use or access: (i) any software, application, other front-end software, or API provided by CIRCL for online content storage, sharing and processing of files, materials, data, text, audio, video, images or other content (for greater certainty, excluding third party software that may interact with the Service, as defined below) (collectively, "Content"); (ii) the CIRCL website at and such other locations as made available from time to time (the "Website"); (iii) any "app" or other front-end software provided by us (for greater certainty, excluding third party software that may interact with the Website or the Service, as defined below) that interacts or interfaces with the Website (the "Software"), and (iv) our software made available through the Website and/or the Software (collectively, the "Service").

Introduction. We respect the privacy rights of users and recognize the importance of protecting information collected about you. We have created this Privacy Policy to explain our practices for the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. We have appointed a Privacy Officer who is responsible for our compliance with this Privacy Policy. You may contact our Privacy Officer at the contact information listed below.

Changes to This Privacy Policy. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any changes, we will notify you by revising the "Last Updated" date at the top of this Privacy Policy and, in some cases, we may (but are not required to) provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our Website or sending you an email notification). We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy whenever you access the Service to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy. Your use of any of the Service after the posting of such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.

Information Collection. As indicated below, we collect two types of information through our Service: personal information and non-personal information. The types of information we collect about you will depend on the nature of your interaction with us or the Service.

Information You Provide To Us. We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you register with CIRCL for an account, create or modify your profile and online account, access and use the Service (including but not limited to when you upload, download, collaborate on or share files or other information), participate in any interactive features of the Service, request customer support, communicate with us via third-party social media sites or otherwise communicate with us.

The types of information we may collect directly from you may include your "personal information", which for the purposes of this Privacy Policy, means information about an identifiable individual, including, for example, an individual's contact information such as name, home address, telephone number, email address, mailing address, billing information, unique identifiers such as your user name, account information, password, user content generated by you, such as audio, video, text and images provided by you on the Website, which may contain personal information. Personal information does not include information that would enable an individual to be contacted at a place of business, for example an employee's name, position or title, business telephone number, or business address.

On the other hand, "non-personal information" is any type of information other than personal information, and is excluded from this Policy. For example, non-personal information would include business information, or information that enables an individual to be contacted at a place of business, for example an employee's name, position or title, business telephone number, or business address. Non-personal information also includes information that is anonymous or not about an identifiable information, such as web browsing information (such as the domain used to access the Website, or the type and version of device, browser or operating system being used to access the Service), or aggregate information that anonymizes the underlying data (like the number of visitors, what pages users visit, average time spent on the Website or on various parts of the Service). We will collect, use or disclose non-personal information in accordance with our ordinary business practices, but always in accordance with any applicable laws.

This Privacy Policy, however, only covers our collection, use and disclosure of personal information. We will only collect, use or disclose personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, or in accordance with laws applicable to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information by us ("Applicable Privacy Laws"). We may also store the files or other information that you upload or provide to the Service ("Content") in order to be able to provide you with the features and functionality of the Service.

Information We Collect Automatically When You Use the Service. When you access or use the Service, we may automatically collect information about you, including:

Information Obtained from Third Parties. If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us and in accordance with this Policy and such policy under which that information was collected.

Use of Personal Information. We may use the personal information, in combination with the non-personal information, we collect about you for a variety of purposes, including to:

Your Consent to CIRCL. We will collect, use, or disclose your personal information only with your knowledge and consent, except where required or permitted by Applicable Privacy Laws. Accordingly, we may disclose any and all information we, in good faith, believe the Applicable Privacy Laws require or if disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights. When you choose to provide us with your personal information you consent to the use of your personal information as identified in this Privacy Policy and as may be further identified at the time of collection.

Express Consent. Sometimes you will be asked to provide your express consent to our collection, use or disclosure of personal information - for example, by being asked to check a box to indicate your consent to receive marketing communications in compliance with Canada's anti-spam laws.

Implied Consent. Other times, you may provide your implied consent to our collection, use or disclosure of personal information when we can reasonably conclude that you have given consent by some action you have taken or an action you have decided not to take. Generally, this occurs where the purpose for the use of your personal information would be reasonably apparent to you - for example, when you provide us with your personal information through a comment, you provide us with implied consent to use that personal information in order to feature the comment on the Website.

Withdrawing Your Consent. You may notify us at any time that you wish to withdraw or change your consent to our use and disclosure of your personal information. We will accommodate your request subject to legal and contractual restrictions. The most common way of indicating this withdrawal of consent is (i) by changing your privacy preferences to the extent such functionality is made available through the Service, or (ii) stopping use of the Service. In other situations, you may be able to opt out of the use of your personal information. For example, if you have "opted in" or subscribed to one of our mailing lists, we will always provide you the opportunity to "opt out" or unsubscribe. You may also choose not to provide us with your personal information. However, if you make this choice we may not be able to provide you with the Service, or information that you have requested. For example, we may require your email address in order to send you newsletters, articles, interviews, alerts, announcements, or online content.

Sharing and Disclosure of Information. We will not share personal information about you or any Content with any third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy or in connection with the Service. For example, we may share personal information about you including as follows:

Security. While no service is completely secure, CIRCL takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. For example, we encrypt your Content when it is stored in our data centers. In addition, sensitive information such as credit card number and password that we request from you on the Service is protected with encryption and anonymization during transmission over the Internet. CIRCL also takes efforts to remove personal information from electronic files through a third party. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, and so you should always exercise caution when disclosing sensitive information over the Internet. If you have any questions about security on our Website, you can contact us at CIRCL expressly disclaims any liability for inadequate or incomplete de-identification completed by its third party contractor.

The servers on which personal information is stored are kept in a controlled environment with limited access. While we take reasonable efforts to guard personal information we knowingly collect directly from you, no security system is impenetrable. In addition, we cannot guarantee that any passively-collected personal information you choose to include in documents you store on our systems are maintained at levels of protection to meet specific needs or obligations you may have relating to that information.

You may access your account information and our service only through the use of an individual user ID and password. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused. In addition, always logout and close your browser when you finish your session. Please note that we will never ask you to disclose your password in an unsolicited phone call or email.

Removal of Your Information. We keep your information only as long as we need it for legitimate business purposes and to meet any legal requirements. Personal information used to make a decision that directly affects an individual will be kept for at least one year after such a decision. We have retention standards that meet these parameters. We destroy your information when it is no longer needed or required to be kept, or we remove your personally identifiable information to render it anonymous.
