What Personal Information do we collect?
“Personal Information” is broadly defined under Canadian law as information about an identifiable individual or as information that allows an individual to be identified, as defined from time to time in applicable privacy legislation. Generally speaking, Personal Information does not include what is considered business contact information: your name, title or position, business address, telephone number, facsimile number, or e mail address.
The types of personal information that PCTxs may collect about you includes your name, home address, telephone number, personal e mail address, billing and account information, among other things. More specifically, it may include information you supply when you sign up for our services or send us correspondence or emails. It may also include tracking information collected as you navigate through our site through the use of “cookies” or other technical means.
How do we use your Personal Information?
Among our primary goals in collecting information is to provide you with a user friendly experience when visiting our site and to make our site more valuable to you. We try to ensure that the banner advertisements we deliver to you are consistent with your interests. We may also email you with messages and advertising that we think may be of interest to you.
How do we secure your personal information?
The Personal Information we collect is securely stored within our database, and we use standard, industry wide procedures, firewalls and SSL (Secure Socket Layers) for protecting your information. However, as effective as this technology is, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
PCTxs requires seller’s agents to register with PCTxs to post or publish patent rights for sale on PCTxs, and to verify seller’s agents’ identity. This information is not published in any manner, except to the very limited extent necessary to facilitate seller’s agents’ contact with buyer’s agents, as required.
We also collect information from our users at several different points on the website to facilitate their contact with seller’s agents as required, and to ensure that PCTxs content is acquired, and developed appropriately.
We may provide “existence and number of click” information, in fully anonymous and generalized form, for auditing purposes, to advertisers or purchasers of any “pay per click” activity on PCTxs. We do not sell or rent information to anyone.
