DEFINITION

“Personal Information” means any information relating to the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual. An identifiable individual is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to one or more factors specific to his or her physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

This may include, for example, your name, contact information, e-mail address and the services you use. Personal information that is aggregated and cannot be associated with an identifiable individual is not considered personal information.

COLLECTION, USE AND LIMITATION

Auray is responsible for Personal Information under its control and has designated a Privacy Officer who is accountable for Auray’s compliance with this Policy and the Privacy Principles. The Privacy Officer is the person identified herein.

Auray is also responsible for Personal Information that it has transferred to a third party for any of the purposes described herein. In this regard, Auray will take reasonable steps to ensure that third parties treat Personal Information in a confidential manner, all in accordance with the Policy.

Auray shall identify the purposes for which Personal Information is collected at or before the time of collection. Some of the purposes for which Personal Information is collected, used or disclosed are described in the Policy.

In this regard, in the course of its business, Auray collects Personal Information for the following purposes only (the “Permitted Purposes”):

to establish, develop and maintain business relationships with our customers, employees and other individuals with whom we deal
to sell, improve, design or otherwise market its services
to detect and assess the interests, needs and expectations of its customers with a view to improving the services it offers or proposing new products and services
to administer and manage its business;
for internal training and quality assurance purposes;
to meet legal obligations (including the Act)

In the event that we wish to collect, use and/or disclose Personal Information for purposes other than the Authorized Purposes, Auray is committed to obtaining your consent, except as otherwise required by law.

Auray is committed to obtaining your informed consent, whether oral, written or implied, for the collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Information, except as required by law or as set out in this Policy. By completing any form on the Website or by using our services, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. In addition, by visiting, interacting with and/or using our Website, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Policy.

In this regard, Auray may collect, use or disclose your personal information without your consent in any of the following circumstances:

where such collection, use or disclosure is clearly in your best interests and obtaining your consent is not reasonably practicable in the circumstances, including in the case of an emergency, where the life, health or security of an individual is threatened
where such collection, use or disclosure of Confidential Information would defeat the purpose for which it was collected, used or disclosed, including preventing or hindering unlawful activity
where such collection, use or disclosure of Confidential Information is necessary to permit Auray to comply with any applicable law, subpoena, warrant or other order made by a court of competent jurisdiction.

You may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal restrictions and reasonable notice. However, as a result of such withdrawal, Auray may no longer be able to provide you with all of our services. You may contact Auray for information on the consequences of such withdrawal

Auray will limit the collection of Personal Information, both with respect to the type and amount of information, to that which is necessary to fulfill the Authorized Purposes, or any other purpose for which Auray has obtained your consent.

Finally, in addition to collecting Personal Information from you, Auray may also collect such information from other sources, including credit reporting agencies or from third parties claiming to be authorized to disclose such Personal Information.

Auray will not use or disclose your Personal Information for purposes other than those identified and for which it was collected, except with your prior consent or as permitted or required by law. Auray will retain your Personal Information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which your Personal Information was collected.

For your information, you understand that Auray may disclose your Personal Information to

any third party engaged by Auray to perform services for Auray, including business improvement services operated by Auray, etc.
any third party to whom Auray may wish to sell a portion of its business or assets or any entity involved in the operational financing of Auray;
any other third party, where you consent, or where such disclosure is required by law, including disclosure at the request of law enforcement.

Only Auray employees who require access for business reasons, or whose duties reasonably so require, have access to your Personal Information.

In some cases, Personal Information may be stored or processed abroad, in which case it will be subject to the applicable laws of those countries.

Auray undertakes to retain Personal Information only for as long as it is necessary or relevant for the Authorized Purposes, or as required by law. Where Personal Information has been used to make a decision about you, Auray has an obligation to retain it for a period of time that is reasonably sufficient to allow you to exercise your right of access to the information or the reason for such decision.

Finally, Personal Information that is no longer required by Auray and for which the statutory retention periods have expired is destroyed, erased, anonymized or de-identified.

Auray will make reasonable efforts to ensure that your Personal Information is accurate, complete, current and necessary for the purposes for which we collected such Personal Information, all in order to minimize the risk that incorrect Personal Information will be used to make a decision against you.

Auray will protect your personal information by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.

Also, in the event that Personal Information is transferred to third parties, Auray will obtain contractual undertakings from such third parties that they will protect the Personal Information.

 

Subject to certain exceptions, Auray will, upon written request, disclose the existence, use and disclosure of your Personal Information and provide you with access to that Personal Information, all provided in an understandable manner, within a reasonable time and at minimal or no cost, except as required by law.

However, notwithstanding the above, in certain exceptional cases, such as where Personal Information cannot be disclosed for legal, security or commercial reasons, Auray may refuse to provide you with access to all of your Personal Information.

You have the right to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the Personal Information held by us and have the opportunity to have that Personal Information corrected as appropriate. In this regard, in the event of an error in such Personal Information, Auray will act promptly and expeditiously to correct such errors.

Finally, in order to gain access to your Personal Information, we invite you to contact the Privacy Officer at this Policy.

You have the right to address a challenge concerning our compliance with this Policy to our Privacy Officer.

In this regard, Auray shall establish mechanisms to receive and respond to all such complaints and inquiries about its personal information handling policies and practices. If Auray determines that a complaint is justified, it will take appropriate measures, including amending its policies and practices, if necessary.
