The Canadian Innovation Exchange respects and values its relationship with all our delegates, speakers, employees, customers, sponsors and other stakeholders. CIX is committed to protecting and keeping secure the personal information you provide into our custody and control.
The personal information you choose to provide will be protected and used only for the purpose identified at the time of collection.
Personal Information Defined
Personal information is information that can be used to identify or contact a specific individual (i.e. name, home address and telephone number) and may also include survey responses expressing an individual's opinion. Publicly available information (example: information in telephone directory) or business contact information is not considered personal information. The provision by an individual of home information as business contact information will be considered business contact information and hence will not be subject to policies put in place to protect personal information.
Privacy Protection Practices
All personal information gathered by the Canadian Innovation Exchange is kept in confidence for the identified purpose for which it was collected. Festival employees or subcontractors only have authorized access to personal information based on the business needs for which it was collected. Physical, administrative and technical measures are in place to ensure that the information is not disclosed or shared for reasons other than achieving the purpose for which it was collected.
All Festival employees use password protocols and firewalls are in place to protect personal information received or stored electronically. Protocols and software are maintained to maximize protection of personal information.
