Privacy Policy

This privacy policy describes how we handle your personal information. We collect, use, and share personal information to help the Dowland websites ("Dowland") work and to keep it safe (details below). This policy is effective November 25, 2010.

Collection

Information posted on dowland.ca, nccdowland.ca,  terconind.com and dowlandconstructionc.om  is obviously publicly available. Our servers are located in Canada and in the United States. Therefore, if you choose to provide us with personal information, you are consenting to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers in Canada and in the United States. We collect and store the following personal information:

  • email address, physical contact information, and (depending on the service used) sometimes financial information;
  • computer sign-on data, statistics on page views, traffic to and from Dowland and ad data (all through cookies - you can take steps to disable the cookies on your browser although this is likely to affect your ability to use the site);
  • other information, including users IP address and standard web log information.

Use

We use users' personal information to:

  • provide our services
  • resolve disputes, collect fees, and troubleshoot problems;
  • encourage safe use and enforce our policies;
  • customize users' experience, measure interest in our services, improve our services and inform users about services and updates;
  • communicate marketing and promotional offers to you according to your preferences;
  • do other things for users as described when we collect the information.

Disclosure

We don't sell or rent users' personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without users explicit consent. We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a posting or other content violates other's rights, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety. We may also share personal information with:

  • corporate affiliates who help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts and provide joint services. (Our corporate affiliates will market only to users who ask them to).
  • service providers who help with our business operations.

Communications and Email tools

You agree to receive marketing communications from us unless you tell us that you prefer not to receive such communications. If you don't wish to receive marketing communications from us, simply indicate your preference by following directions provided with the communication. You may not use our site or communication tools to harvest addresses, send spam or otherwise breach our Terms of Use or Privacy Policy. We may automatically scan and manually filter email messages sent via our communication tools for malicious activity or prohibited content, but we do not permanently store such messages. If you use our tools to send content to a friend, we don't permanently store your friends' addresses or use or disclose them for marketing purposes. To report spam from other users, please contact us.

Security

We use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, but as you probably know, nothing is perfect, so we make no guarantees.

Cookies

We or our service providers may use "cookies" (small files placed on your hard drive) on certain of our pages to help analyze our web page flow; customize our services, content and advertising; measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety. A few important things you should know about cookies are that:

  • We offer certain features that are available only through the use of cookies.
  • We use cookies to help identify you and maintain your signed-in status.
  • You are always free to decline cookies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of some of our sites or services. For more information on your choices about accepting cookies, consult your browser help function.

General

We may update this policy at any time, with updates taking effect when you next use the site or after 30 days, whichever is sooner. If we or our corporate affiliates are involved in a merger or acquisition, we may share personal information with another company, but this policy will continue to apply. Send questions about this policy to contact us.
