PRIVACY POLICY

Universitysearch.ca is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. This Privacy Policy is applicable to this Website and Products and Services provided under license agreement by Universitysearch.ca from The Sport Source®.

GENERAL You can visit and enjoy the Website without disclosing any personal information about yourself unless required. However during the purchase of our advertised product(s) you will be required to share with us certain personal information about yourself. If you submit any personal information to us you can be assured that we will not sell, lease, or share your personal information with or to anyone else, except as follows: (1) to the owner of MATCHFIT® and College Profiler™ Software The Sport Source® (2) on occasion, we may offer a special promotion (such as a, contest, or a free subscription to goods and services) on the Website in conjunction with a third party service provider, sponsor, or promotional partner, and share your information with that third party service provider, sponsor, or promotional partner so that it can send you other special promotions it offers, but only if you give us permission to do so.

Special Offers and Promotions
With your permission, we may also send you e-mails with special offers and promotions. If you don't want to receive these, you may change your preferences. We may also use IP addresses to analyze trends, help us administer the Website, track the movement of visitors, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information, except as may be necessary to verify users' locations to determine the applicability of subscription products, as applicable.

How We Collect Personal Information.
when you provide information by phone or in documents; this may be via on-line form, e-mail or hard copy; through conversations with you in person or by telephone.

Disclosure for Legal Purposes.
The law requires that we may be required to share your personal information and non-personal information pursuant to judicial or governmental subpoenas, warrants or orders. If we are required to do so, we will, of course, obey the law. In addition, notwithstanding any term to the contrary in this Privacy Policy, we reserve the right to use and disclose share your personal and non-personal information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of this Website's Terms of Service, violations of reproduction of content or materials in-print or online or as otherwise required by law.

Security Practices.
MATCHFIT® and College Profiler™ access codes provided to customers by The Sport Source® are password protected for your privacy and security. In certain areas The Sport Source® use industry-standard encryption to protect data transmissions.

Consent.
We seek and confirm your consent to use your personal information as set out above at the time we first collect your personal information. If you subsequently supply further personal information, it is assumed the consent we originally received is applicable to personal information supplied at a later time, provided the purposes are the same as have been identified in this document or by a Universitysearch.ca representative. Consent may be expressed (in writing or verbally), or it may be implied, such as when you send us unsolicited personal information, in paper copy or electronically. Your consent can be withdrawn if you notify our Privacy Office in writing. If you send us unsolicited personal information, your consent will be presumed and you do not need to do or send us anything. If you do not wish to have your personal information used for a particular purpose or you do not wish to receive mailings, you can e-mail us to notify us of your wishes.

Safeguarding Information.
We will take appropriate measures to ensure that personal information you have supplied is stored securely, whether in electronic form or otherwise. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Accordingly, although Universitysearch.ca strives to protect such information, Universitysearch.ca cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable steps to preserve the security of this information in our own systems. If you have a login name and/or password for use in conjunction with this web site, you are entirely responsible for the maintenance of the confidentiality of that login name and/or password. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your login name. You agree to immediately notify Universitysearch.ca of any unauthorized use of your login name and/or password or any other breach of security known to you.

Information retention.
We rely upon you to notify us of any changes in your personal information that you consider important, in order that we can keep your personal information up to date. Where we determine that your personal information is no longer required for any purpose we have identified to you, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that it is disposed of in a secure manner or rendered anonymous. Some personal information must be retained for specific periods to comply with various laws.

Copyright and intellectual property.
Universitysearch.ca respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. Universitysearch.ca has no responsibility for content on other web sites that you may find or access when using our site or from advertisers products or services. Material available on or through other web sites may be protected by copyright and the intellectual property laws of Canada and/or other countries. It is Universitysearch.ca policy, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who may infringe or repeatedly infringe the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of Universitysearch.ca and/or others.

Notification of changes.
If we decide to make an important change to our Privacy Policy, we will post a notification and link on our homepage so that you can review the updated policy. If at any point we wish to use your personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify you by means of an e-mail and give you the opportunity to indicate whether you consent to the proposed use.

Concerns.
You have the right to complain to us if you feel we have collected, used, or disclosed your personal information in an improper way.
