  • Website information collected

    You can visit our site without telling us who you are or providing us with any personal information. However, we collect the IP (Internet protocol) addresses of all of our visitors and other related information such as page requests and average time spent on our website. We use this information to monitor and improve our platform.

    We use cookies and similar technologies to collect information about the pages you access or visit. Cookies are bits of information that are automatically stored on your computer, so we can recognize you when you return.

The information collected through cookies may be combined with other identifiable personal information (such as demographic information) from our records and other sources. We may use this combined information for future ICAR conference initiatives and to help us improve our website presentation.

  • Information we share

    We don’t transfer (or otherwise make available) your personal information to anyone else with the exception of third parties who provide payment services on our behalf. Also, we may use service providers to process data, host our website, and send emails, in order to help us better understand your use of our website and refine and improve the website. These companies may store and process this information in Canada or in the US.

    All of our service providers are required to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal information and to use it only in compliance with applicable Canadian privacy laws.

    We may also disclose specific personal information about you if required by law, governmental request or court order if, based on our good faith belief, it is necessary to conform or comply with such law, request or court order.

  • Retention of personal information

    We only keep your personal information as long as necessary for the purposes we collected it, or as otherwise required by law.

  • Security of personal information

    Your privacy is important to us. We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against the loss, theft, unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of personal information in our custody and control.
