Website Privacy Policy

AUTHENTIC Asset Management Inc. (“AUTHENTIC”, “we”, “us”) is committed to protect your personal information and to maintain its confidentiality. We have developed this Website Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and practices with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information of those who visit our website at www.AuthenticAsset.com (“Website”).

BY SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION TO AUTHENTIC AND/OR VISITING OUR WEBSITE, YOU SIGNIFY YOUR CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF SUCH INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

Collection of Your Personal Information

AUTHENTIC collects personally identifiable information, such as your name, email address, home or work address, and telephone number. You may provide that to AUTHENTIC through our Website, so that we may correspond with you.

AUTHENTIC may also collect demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your postal code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favourites.

AUTHENTIC may also automatically collect information about your computer hardware and software such as your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring web site addresses. This information can be used by AUTHENTIC to better understand Website usage, and assess the operation and quality of the Website.

Note that any personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data that you disclose through public message boards and blogs that AUTHENTIC may offer or access, may be collected and used by others.

AUTHENTIC is not responsible for the privacy policies or other content on any website other than the Website of AUTHENTIC. You are responsible for the links to other websites and their privacy policies governing the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information.

To initiate and maintain an ongoing business relationship beyond the use of the Website, there is a Client Privacy Policy. Further personal information is collected, used and disclosed to enable the provision of agreed Client services.

Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information

AUTHENTIC collects and uses your personal information to operate the Website and to deliver the services you have requested. AUTHENTIC may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from AUTHENTIC and its affiliates.

AUTHENTIC does not sell, rent or lease its Website user lists to third parties. AUTHENTIC may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about an offering. Data may be shared with trusted partners to help AUTHENTIC perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide contact support, or arrange for deliveries. AUTHENTIC may also arrange for you to be contacted to participate in surveys conducted to research your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services for AUTHENTIC, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

AUTHENTIC may keep track of the Website pages and content to determine user preferences. This data may be used to deliver customized content and advertising within the Website to users whose behaviours indicate subject areas of possible interest.

AUTHENTIC will disclose your personal information, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on AUTHENTIC or the Website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of AUTHENTIC; and/or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Website, or the public.

Use of Cookies

You usually have the option of accepting or declining cookies by modifying your browser settings. The primary purpose of cookies on the Website is to provide the user with greater convenience by recalling specific information you have provided on subsequent visits.

Security of Personal Information
