A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your computer or other electronic device so that your device will “remember” information when you visit a site.  Cookies and other tracking technologies are commonly used by websites and apps through which information is collected about your online activities. We may use permanent cookies or server-side artifacts to help us track use of our Services by users, including casual visitors to the Website, such as (without limitation) the number and frequency of visits to our pages and which parts of our Website are visited.

  • Otherwise participate in features of our Website and our Services that request Personal Information.

Any Personal Information posted, used or disclosed on a LinkedIn page, Instagram or other social networking page or site is subject to that website’s privacy policy, and is not subject to this Privacy Policy. 

  1. Our Disclosure of Personal Information

Depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information, you may consent to our collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information may be implied, deemed (using an opt-out mechanism) or express. Express consent can be given orally, electronically or in writing. Implied consent is consent that can reasonably be inferred from your action or inaction.

Your Personal Information will not be used without your consent for purposes other than those for which it was collected or in accordance with applicable laws. From time to time, we may wish to use Personal Information for new or additional purposes, in which case we will amend the Privacy Policy to include these new or additional purposes and will obtain your consent through your continued use of our Website and Services.

Berkshire Axis may also use and disclose your Personal Information to service providers, data processors and other third parties (collectively, “Third Parties”) under the following limited circumstances: 

  • To Third Parties that assist with our operations and Website and Services including, without limitation, for customer services, our business operations, monitoring and analyzing Website activity, and operating and maintaining the Website. Such Third Parties may only use your Personal Information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.
  • When necessary to protect (i) our safety, property or other rights; (ii) our representatives, customers and users of the Website and stakeholders; (iii) to conduct investigations of possible breaches of law, including, including to detect and prevent fraud; 
  • To identify, contract or bring legal action against someone who may be violating an agreement that they have with us;
  • To investigate breaches of security safeguards or cooperate with government or regulatory authorities pursuant to a legal matter;
  • If a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order legally requires or authorises us to disclose Personal Information, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that any Third Party to whom Personal Information is disclosed provides a comparable level of protection for your Personal Information, as provided in this Privacy Policy;
  • To a Third Party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale, merger, amalgamation, or any other type of acquisition, disposition, or financing of all or any portion of Berkshire Axis or any of the assets or shares of Berkshire Axis, provided that the Third Party represents that it will continue to use the information for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy and in accordance with applicable privacy laws;
  • With your consent; or
  • As otherwise required or permitted by law. 
  1. Retention of Personal Information

We retain your Personal Information only for as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and to comply with our legal obligations. We routinely destroy Personal Information that is no longer required for the purposes described herein, in accordance with applicable laws.

  1. Accuracy of Personal Information

Berkshire Axis takes reasonable steps to ensure that any Personal Information in our custody is accurate and up-to-date for the purposes for which the Personal Information is to be used by Berkshire Axis, however, we rely on users of the services to notify us of any changes to their Personal Information provided by them.

  1. How We Protect Your Personal Information

Berkshire Axis uses technical, physical and organizational security safeguards and measures designed to help secure your Personal Information against accidental or unlawful loss, theft, access or disclosure. We also take reasonable steps to ensure that our employees are aware of the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of Personal Information and that unauthorized persons do not gain access to Personal Information that we have disposed of or destroyed.  

Any Personal Information that you provide to us is exchanged on a secured server. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.

Berkshire Axis is not responsible for any failure by you to secure your own device and its access to the Internet or your use of public, unsecured networks. Berkshire Axis also is not responsible for any failure by you to eliminate malware. These failures and others can make you vulnerable to privacy breaches and would put you and your data at risk. 

  1. Data Transfers

As discussed, we may engage Third Parties to perform certain services on our behalf and to otherwise provide the Services.  These Third Parties may store, process and transfer Personal Information on servers located outside of Canada in jurisdictions whose data protection laws may differ from those of Canada, such as the United States of America.  As a result, Personal Information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to the laws in those jurisdictions. For example, information may be shared in response to valid demands or requests from government authorities, courts and law enforcement officials in those countries. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require our Third Parties to maintain protections on Personal Information that are equivalent to those that apply in Canada.

  1. Third Party Analytics  

Our Website uses third party analytics services such as Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google. Google Analytics uses cookies to analyze how you use our Website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our Website (including your IP address) is sent to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our Website, compile reports on Website activity for our Website operators and to provide other site activity related internet services. Additionally, Google may transfer this information to a third party when required by law or in the case of a third party processing information on Google’s behalf.  In no case will Google use your IP address in connection with any other information held by Google. You can set your internet browser to prohibit the installation of cookies, although we must point out that some features and functions of our Website may then be unusable. By using our Website, you consent to the processing of data about you collected by Google in the manner described and for the above-mentioned purpose. The consent for collection and storage of data can be withdrawn at any time in the future by clicking on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.  Given the debate concerning the use of analytical tools using full IP addresses, we wish to point out that our Website uses the “Anonymize IP” function of Google Analytics that works with a shortened form of IP addresses to avoid direct personal identification. 

We also use the cookies to carry out frequency assessments, page usage assessments and marketing assessments. For these assessments, we use this cookie information without a link to your personal information, so it is completely anonymous.

  1. Links to Third Party Sites

Our Website may contain links to, and your use of our Services may lead you to, independently owned and operated third party websites. Those organisations and websites are separate and distinct from Berkshire Axis and our Website, and may have their own separate privacy policies and are not governed by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible in any way for how any third party collects, uses or discloses your Personal Information or the content of any sites owned and operated by any third parties, so it is important to familiarise yourself with the privacy policies of these websites before providing your Personal Information to them.

We will need to verify your identity before providing you with the Personal Information we hold about you. There is no cost for such access request unless you require copies of records. We may not be able to provide you with access to your Personal Information if the information cannot be separated from the Personal Information of others, cannot be disclosed for reasons of security or commercial confidentiality, or is protected by legal privilege. If we cannot provide you with access to your Personal Information, we will advise you of the reasons access is being denied, unless we are prohibited by law from doing so.

You may request to update and change your Personal Information at the contact information set forth below. We will endeavor to correct or complete any Personal Information which you advise us is inaccurate or incomplete.  Where appropriate, the amended information will be transmitted to third parties having access to such information.
