Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy sets out a summary of the principles and procedures that Fundwell.ca follows in meeting its privacy commitments and, as applicable, in light of the foregoing, complying with the requirements of the laws and regulations under applicable privacy laws in Canada, including the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents

From time to time, we may make changes to this Privacy Policy. The Privacy Policy is current as of the “last revised” date which appears at the bottom of this page. We will treat Personal Information in a manner consistent with the Privacy Policy under which it was collected unless we have your consent to treat it differently. This Privacy Policy applies to any information we collect or receive about you, from any source.

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Fundwell.ca we have a few fundamental principles:

We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services. We fully support Self-Sovereign Identity (SSID) protocols and technology applications – you own and control your personal private data.

On our blog and forum, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

If you have questions about accessing or correcting your personal data please contact us at: support@Fundwell.ca

It is Fundwell.ca’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Like most website operators, Fundwell.ca collects non-personal identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, Internet address, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Fundwell.ca’s purpose in collecting non-personal-identifying information is to better understand how Fundwell.ca visitors use its website. From time to time, Fundwell.ca may release non-personal-identifying information in the aggregate, i.e. by publishing a report to members, if so agreed, on trends in the usage of its website.

Fundwell.ca also collects potentially personal-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Fundwell.ca does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personal-identifying information, as described below.

Certain visitors to Fundwell.ca’s websites choose to interact with Fundwell.ca in ways that require Fundwell.ca to gather personal-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Fundwell.ca gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who inquire about our membership registry to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Fundwell.ca are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Fundwell.ca collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the member’s interaction with Fundwell.ca. Fundwell.ca does not disclose personal-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personal-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Fundwell.ca may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Fundwell.ca may monitor the most popular goods and services on the Fundwell.ca site. Fundwell.ca may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Fundwell.ca does not disclose personal-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personal-Identifying Information

Fundwell.ca discloses potentially personal-identifying and personal-identifying information only with a member’s permission and only to those of its employees, suppliers and contractors that:

need to know that information to process it on Fundwell.ca’s behalf or to provide services available at Fundwell.ca’s websites, and
have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, suppliers and contractors may be located outside of your home country; by using Fundwell.ca’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them – we will ask before doing so.
Fundwell.ca will not rent or sell potentially personal-identifying and personal-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, suppliers and contractors, as described above, Fundwell.ca discloses potentially personal-identifying and personal-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Fundwell.ca believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Fundwell.ca, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered participating member of a Fundwell.ca website and have supplied your email address, Fundwell.ca may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Fundwell.ca and our business services and products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it anonymously to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Fundwell.ca takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personal-identifying and personal-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer and which the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Fundwell.ca uses cookies to help Fundwell.ca identify and track visitors, their usage of Fundwell.ca website, and their website access preferences. Fundwell.ca visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Fundwell.ca’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Fundwell.ca’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Fundwell.ca may change its Privacy Policy from time to time and in Fundwell.ca’s sole discretion. Fundwell.ca encourages visitors and members to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
