Gevity Consulting Inc. is committed to protecting the privacy and security of your Personal Information throughout your relationship with us.

General Statement

This policy relates to our privacy practices in connection with our website, www.gevityinc.com (the “Site”). It does not describe information collection practices in relation to other websites, including those linked to or from the Site unless that those other sites are under our full control.

Your privacy is important to us, and our policy is simple. Gevity Consulting Inc. does not collect any personal information about you when you visit the Site unless you specifically choose to provide that information.

What is Personal Information?

“Personal Information” means any information, recorded in any form, about an identified individual or an individual whose identity may be inferred or determined from such information, other than business contact information (e.g. name, title, business address). This Policy does not cover business contact information or aggregated data from which the identity of an individual cannot be determined. Gevity Consulting Inc. retains the right to use business contact information or aggregated data in any ethical way that it determines appropriate.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Gevity Consulting Inc. does not collect any personal information about you other than that which you provide voluntarily. For example, we will retain your contact information if you apply to work with us, send us an inquiry or subscribe to our newsletter. We also retain other information provided to us by you in connection with industry related conferences.

Information provided by you is used solely for the purpose for which it is intended. Unless permitted by law, no Personal Information is collected about an individual without first obtaining the consent of the individual to the collection, use and disclosure of that information. You can change your consent preferences at any time, upon providing reasonable, advance notice, by contacting Gevity Consulting Inc.

Such information is not shared with any third party for commercial purposes.

Disclosure of your Personal Information

Gevity Consulting Inc. may disclose Personal Information under a variety of circumstances including when an individual has provided consent for the disclosure.

For example, Gevity Consulting Inc. may disclose information in the following circumstances:

  • When you engage us to provide consulting services.
  • When you ask us to provide a reference.
  • When we are required or permitted to do so by law or by a lawful order of a court, tribunal, or administrative agency.
  • When we believe, on reasonable grounds, that it is necessary to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of an identifiable person or group.
  • When the information is public.

In the event sensitive Personal Information is provided to Gevity Consulting Inc., we will not disclose such Personal Information unless it is required by law or we otherwise have your consent. Where obliged or permitted to disclose information without consent, Gevity Consulting Inc. will not disclose more information than is required.

Where Gevity Consulting Inc. shares Personal Information with organizations that perform services on its behalf (e.g., process payments, etc.), we will require those service providers to use such information solely for the purposes of providing services to Gevity Consulting Inc. and to have appropriate safeguards for the protection of that Personal Information. However, where Personal Information is stored outside of Canada (e.g., the United States), it may be subject to the laws of that country and no contractual provision can override those laws. Similar to Canadian law, law enforcement agencies in other countries may obtain access to Personal Information as permitted by local laws.  Confidentiality and the security of information are key considerations for Gevity Consulting Inc. in any outsourcing arrangement to third parties, both inside and outside Canada.

In the event Gevity Consulting Inc. was to sell or transfer ownership or control of any or all of its business, operations or services to a third party, Gevity Consulting Inc. may transfer personal information to a potential buyer both before and after the purchase.

Limiting Collection of Personal Information through the Site

We also receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us through the Site.

The Site uses “Cookies” to improve your experience by tailoring the web site to better match your preferences.  “Cookies” are stored on your computer and can retain information from visit to visit.  When you view the Site, we may use this mechanism to store some information on your computer.  For example, Cookies can be used to save your preferences while you are at our site so you do not have to fill out forms or other areas with information you may have already provided. This will be used to determine ways to improve our websites, products or services.

With most Internet Browsers, you can erase Cookies from your computer hard drive, block all Cookies, or receive a warning before a Cookie is stored. Please refer to your Browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. If you block or otherwise reject our Cookies, your use of the Site may be limited.

By using our site with a Cookie-enabled Browser you consent to our use of this mechanism.

Limiting Retention of your Personal Information

Gevity Consulting Inc. only retains Personal Information for as long as is required to fulfill the purposes listed above or as otherwise required or permitted by law (e.g. record keeping requirements prescribed governments for tax purposes).

Keeping your Personal Information up to Date and Accurate

Gevity Consulting Inc. makes sure your Personal Information as up to date, accurate and relevant as is required for its intended use.

You may request access to the Personal Information we have on record in order to review and amend the information, as appropriate. In circumstances where your Personal Information has been provided by a third party, we will refer you to that party. To access your Personal Information, refer to the contact information at the end of this Policy.
