Privacy Policy

We consider our relationship with our customers as one of our most valuable assets. We are committed to protecting your privacy and realize that our success depends upon our ability to maintain your trust. Below is information about Canada Business Plan's undertaking to protect your privacy and to ensure the integrity of our organization.

OUR PLEDGE TO OUR CLIENTS
We are committed to protecting your privacy. The information that we collect is only used to facilitate your transactions on our site, apply as required to your business plan, and to enhance your overall experience with us. We may share your information with trusted third parties, but only if you allow us to do so.


HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
We have a secure server software (SSL) solution, which encrypts all the information that you input before it is sent to us, and encrypts all the information that we send to you.


WHY DO WE COLLECT INFORMATION AND HOW DO WE USE IT?
When you use our site actively (to order a report, inquire about a report, etc), we may need to know your name, address, phone number, e-mail address and payment information. This allows us to process and fulfill your transaction and to notify you of the status of your order.
If you ask to be informed of future services and site enhancements, we will need your e-mail address in order to send you the information you requested. When you order our newsletter, we may ask for your name, address, e-mail address, and other demographic information so that we can gather knowledge of who our customers are, what they want, and administer to their needs promptly. We tailor our site to the interest of our customers by using their orders to shape our recommendations about services (for example, types of funding available in specific Canadian locations) that might be of interest to them. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site. We may also occasionally use the information we collect to notify you about important changes in the functioning of our web site, new services and special offers that we think you will find useful. If you would rather not receive this information, you can contact us at anytime at unsubscribe@businessplanservices.org. We might occasionally ask you to tell us about your experience with us. These short surveys will be completely optional. None of this data is associated with any individual's name. We then work with this anonymous data to tailor our future offers to your needs and to the needs of our future customers.

WHAT ABOUT COOKIES?
Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your
computer's hard drive. Our website does not use cookies.
WILL Centre for Business Plan Development DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS TO THIRD PARTIES?
Only if you give us permission to do so, Centre for Business Plan Development may offer you a number of services that complement your transaction with us (reports, newsletter, business-related offers, etc.). If you choose to take advantage of offers from pre-selected and trustworthy third parties, we will need your specific approval to share information related to the transaction with those third parties. Again, you are in control of that process. The exchange of information will be used only to facilitate the transaction.


YOUR CONSENT
By using our web site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by us. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we disclose it. This policy covers only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to other parties (for example, a business-related client or service on our web site), different rules may apply. Centre for Business Plan Development cannot control the privacy policies of third parties and therefore you should take care when disclosing personally identifiable information to others.


IMPORTANT Should you have any concerns about our use of your information please contact us at privacy@businessplanservices.org and we will do our best to address your concerns, explain our processing or where requested amend our practices with respect to your personal data.
