Scott's Directories has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for ScottsDirectories.com, Scottsinfo.com and our other membership-based sites.
Our site's registration and order forms require users to give us contact information (like their name and email address), financial information (like their credit card numbers), and business information (like their job title, company products, functional specialty, staff responsibility, etc). We use customer contact data to send the user information about our company and promotional material from some of our partners. The customer's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Financial information that is collected is used to check the user's qualifications for registration and to bill the user for products and services. Business profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor the visitor's experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences.
This site contains links to other sites. Scott's Directories is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
Scott’s Directories adheres to the provisions of the Federal and Provincial privacy laws including the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). As a company involved in data cleansing, updating, rental, transfer and exchange of direct response lists, Scott’s Directories ensures that list owners and users specify the nature of the intended use of the data before the information is collected or disclosed.
In situations where personal information is publicly available PIPEDA does not require consent for its collection, use or disclosure. Telephone directories and Company websites would be an example of a publicly available source of personal information. We may legally use your business contact information to send you updates about related products and services. You may always opt out of receiving future mailings by using the unsubscribe link provided in every email or by contacting our Privacy Officer.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. These measures include the use of seed names and specially encrypted data fields.
Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us and our partners at the point where we request information about the visitor.
This site gives users the following options for removing their information from our database to not receive future communications or to no longer receive our service. These options are:
