Personal Information Collection
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual (“Personal Information”). The Company collects Personal Information when you voluntarily provide it through our Website, or when you provide it to us through other means. For example, we may collect Personal Information when you:
• Contact us through email, telephone, mail; or other correspondence;
• Register for a product or service we or our partners provide; or
• Register to receive our newsletter.
We transfer Personal Information to Heritage Education Funds Inc., an affiliate, who assists us in managing the Canadian Mother Resource® community and programs, and other third party service providers that may assist us with carrying out these purposes.
When joining the MomResource.ca community, you must complete the registration process in order to receive the many products and services, including free samples, which may be of interest to you. By providing information about yourself, including your email, as prompted by the program’s registration form, you are agreeing to receive the Company’s newsletter containing news, updates and promotions regarding products and services of the Company, its affiliates, and of our partners. You can withdraw your consent at any time. We will provide your personal information to other parties: where we have your consent, where the other parties are our suppliers or business partners who provide service to you, and where we are required by law. You understand that some of your information may be stored in the “cloud” (limited to name and contact information), and may be stored in other countries such as the United States of America. Thus, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions per the laws in those jurisdictions.
The Company reserves the right to transfer Personal Information in the event that we merge with or are acquired by a third party. We also may disclose your Personal Information for any other purpose permitted by law or to which you consent.
