Privacy Policy For Website Usage

Advisorpro.ca makes every effort to protect the privacy of those who access the Advisorpro.ca website. To enhance your user experience, we collect and store certain information that is generated automatically as you navigate through our site. For example, we use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie.” Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the site, cookies help us track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the site, like our insurance questionnaire forms, where you may have entered response information before. Another example of information that we automatically collect as you navigate the site is information about your computer’s connection to the Internet. This information allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on the site. Gathering and evaluating traffic data enables us to make site adjustments that enhance the overall user experience.

Our site/blog posts may in some sections include links to other websites whose privacy policies we do not control. When you access another website through our site, use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting. Advisorpro.ca is not responsible for and has no control over the privacy policies, if any, of such external sites.

Advisorpro.ca is a marketing and networking resource that connects consumers to licensed insurance & financial services professionals. Advisorpro.ca does not conduct e-commerce payment transactions via the website. All final payment transactions are completed via the payment systems of the individual service provider in our network. Advisorpro.ca may collect sensitive information to facilitate e-commerce transactions but no payments are completed via the website. Advisorpro.ca may collect identification information from visitors who voluntarily provide such information during the service request process, such as their name, company and/or organization affiliation, telephone number, mailing address or e-mail. Advisorpro.ca may use this information to match the requestor to the network advisor that may best match the users needs.

To better serve our users, Advisorpro.ca occasionally uses survey information to help gauge user satisfaction, interest and opinions about the insurance & financial services industry as well as Advisorpro.ca advisor members. Unless required by law, or as otherwise noted in a survey request, Advisorpro.ca does not disclose to third parties the identities of those who respond to surveys, but may disclose to the public the survey responses themselves, both individually and in the aggregate. If you don’t want to participate, you may decline to complete any such surveys.

Notwithstanding Advisorpro.ca efforts to protect the privacy of visitors to the Advisorpro.ca website, transmission of sensitive or confidential information to the Advisorpro.ca website should be guided by an understanding that electronic communications are not entirely secure against interception.

Questions or comments about this Privacy Statement or the Advisorpro.ca web site may be sent to the attention of the Privacy Officer at privacy@advisorpro.ca.
