Collection of Information: Subject to the exclusions and disclosures set out in this Agreement, we aim to collect, use and disclose only such information as is required to enable us to manage your account, to provide the Services, to maintain our customer/visitor lists, to respond to your inquiries or provide feedback, for identification and authentication purposes, for survey and for service improvement. We will maintain the confidentiality of any contact information you provide to us on signing up for our Services or contacting us with questions or for further information and we will use it only for the purposes for which we have collected it, unless you agree that we may disclose it to other third parties.
"Non-Personal Information" is information of an anonymous nature, such as an Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) that has been stripped of personal information, the domain used to access the Website, and the type and version of browser or operating system being used by visitors to the Website. Aggregate, anonymized information, such as demographic statistics of our users (e.g. average age or geographical allocation of our users), number of visitors, what pages users access or visit, and average time spent on the Website is not considered Personal Information. Similarly, business contact information such as the name, title, business address, or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organization is not considered Personal Information.
Use of Information: We use the information that we collect for the following purposes:
(i) predictive modelling, namely collation and aggregation of data to draw conclusions on or to define shared characteristics. Predictive modelling may include conclusions drawn about behaviour or likely behaviour across ages, gender, geography and other commonalities; and
(ii) obtaining deeper insights into specific user behaviour based on combining data against a third party’s own records
Your IP address is reported by your web browser whenever you visit a page on the Website. This information is recorded together with your registration information on our databases.
By providing your contact information and survey responses, you agree that we may share your information with our partner companies so they may use the same for predictive analytics. We have contractual agreements with our partner companies to ensure that the information they receive from us is handled securely. You will not be marketed to one-to-one by these companies using any contact information provided in a data set from yconic unless you have opted in to receive communications from them.
Our servers are located in Canada and the US, and accordingly, your personal information may be available to the Canadian and US governments and/or its agencies under lawful order, regardless of the safeguards we have put in place for the protection of your Personal Information.
Important Exceptions: We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your consent if we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other Website members, other users of the Services, or anyone else (including the rights or property of anyone else) that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose Personal Information when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is required by and in accordance with the law.
Security: The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We use commercially reasonable efforts to store and maintain your Personal Information in a secure environment. We take technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps designed to protect Personal Information that you provide to us. We have implemented procedures designed to limit the dissemination of your Personal Information to only such designated staff as are reasonably necessary to carry out the stated purposes we have communicated to you.
In certain areas, such as when you provide credit card or other payment information to us, the Website works to help protect the security of your credit card and other payment information during transmission by using industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology.
You are also responsible for helping to protect the security of your Personal Information. For instance, never give out your email account information or your password for the Services to third parties.
Children’s Privacy: The Website and the Services are intended for use by persons older than 13 years of age. Accordingly, we do not knowingly collect information about persons who are younger than 13.

Upon receipt of your written request, we will provide you with a copy of your Personal Information although in certain limited circumstances, we may not be able to make all relevant information available to you such as where that information also pertains to another user. In such circumstances we will provide reasons for the denial to you upon request. We will endeavor to deal with all requests for access and modifications in a timely manner.
We will make every reasonable effort to keep your Personal Information accurate and up-to-date, and we will provide you with mechanisms to update, correct, delete or add to your Personal Information as appropriate.
