Longview Canada ULC, along with its affiliated entities Longview of America, LLC and Longview Software Limited, understands the importance of protecting and safeguarding your privacy when you use our web site.  This privacy statement tells you about the information Longview may collect on this web site, how the information is used, and how you can access and correct certain information that we may collect.

If you as a visitor choose to register or submit information to Longview via this web site (the “Site”), you agree to the use of such data in accordance with this privacy statement. Please note that this Site contains links to other web sites, including, without limitation, web sites maintained by Longview, and other affiliated entities of Longview, including but not limited to its parent and related affiliates, subsidiaries, and divisions.  Also note that Longview may use third parties to host all or portions of, or to assist in maintaining, the Longview web sites.

1.    Collection of Your Personal Information. You can access many areas of our web site without submitting any personally identifiable information.  You may voluntarily choose to provide Longview with identifiable personal data by completing forms, sending emails, or other means as may be provided from time to time on the Site.  The personally identifiable information that we would collect from you if you so choose would typically include your name and title, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, and information about your company.  In addition to information that you voluntarily submit, Longview may, at its option, collect additional information about you from third party sources.  Personal Information collected by Longview will be as reasonably necessary to fulfill your requests and to provide the most relevant, targeted offers and information from Longview and for no other purpose.  All such information collected shall be referred to herein as “Personal Information”.

Furthermore, Longview monitors incoming and outgoing Site traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers and to administer its Site. Longview also uses this data to assemble broad demographic information about its visitors, customers, and partners in general.

We do not usually seek sensitive information (for example, data relating to race or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, criminal record, physical or mental health or sexual orientation) from Site visitors.  We will, where necessary, obtain your explicit consent to collect and use such information.  The following is a list of examples where you may choose to specifically and voluntarily submit Personal Information to Longview through this Site, which Longview may use for each purpose(s) as you indicate at the time of your submission:

  • Request a copy of Longview’s annual report or other publications;

2.    Use of Your Personal Information. Longview uses Personal Information submitted through the Site to provide a way for customers, partners, customer and partner prospects, and other contacts to communicate with our team.  Longview collects the Personal Information from you in order to establish and maintain relationships, and in order to serve you better.  When appropriate, Longview may also use the Personal Information separately or in combination with pre-existing information.

By voluntarily submitting your Personal Information, you consent to the collection and use of your Personal Information as described in this Policy Statement.  In some circumstances, Longview may share Personal Information that you voluntarily submit with trustworthy business partners.  We will only use such third party business partners in order to deliver services to us or on our behalf, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

Personal Information collected on this Site may be stored and processed in Canada, the United States, the Netherlands,  or any other country in which Longview (its parent, or their affiliates, subsidiaries, and divisions and their respective third party business partners and suppliers) maintain facilities.  This may include transfer to countries without data protection rules similar to those in effect in your country of residence.  You acknowledge and agree that by providing Personal Information to Longview through this Site, you consent to the transmission of such Personal Information over international borders as necessary for processing your requests.

Due to the existing legal, regulatory, and security environment, Longview may be required, under certain circumstances, to disclose aggregate level and/or personally identifiable information submitted to Longview through the Site.  Longview will use reasonable efforts to limit such disclosures to the following circumstances:  (i) where Longview believes in good faith that it is required to do so in response to a subpoena or other legal process; (ii) where reasonably required to do so in order to maintain, update or otherwise implement Longview’s data security measures, equipment, technical operations and the like; (iii) where reasonably necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against persons or entities to preserve and/or enforce Longview’s rights, including but not limited to enforcing the Terms of Use for this Site; (iv) protect and defend the rights or property of Longview; or (v) in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of the public or of users of the Longview products, services, and the Site.

In addition, Longview may also disclose Personal Information in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the Longview business or any part thereof, or as part of a security audit.

3.    Protection of Your Personal Information. Longview undertakes substantial efforts to protect the confidentiality of the Personal Information, preferences and other information it has collected through this Site and will never knowingly allow access to this information to anyone outside Longview other than as described herein. Longview has made a substantial investment in its server, database, backup and firewall technologies to protect the information assets of the Longview network, including the confidentiality of Personal Information collected through this Site. These technologies are deployed as part of a sophisticated security architecture and protocol.

You should also do your part in protecting your information. Your Longview username and any password (if such is provided or enacted) are confidential, and we recommend that you not divulge them to anyone. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the Internet as a public transmission network, neither Longview’s network nor data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect Personal Information that is transmitted to us by you, Longview cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information. Thus, any Personal Information transmitted to us is done so at your own risk. Once we receive Personal Information, Longview undertakes substantial efforts to protect the confidentiality of this information consistent with this Privacy Statement.

Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. The use of cookies is an industry standard, and you will find cookies at most major web sites.

6.    Links to Other Web Sites.  This Site may contain links to web sites which are owned and operated by third parties and do not operate in accordance with this Privacy Statement.  When you link to other web sites through this Site, this Privacy Statement and our privacy practices no longer apply.  We encourage you to review each site’s privacy policy before disclosing any personally identifiable information.  Longview is not responsible for the privacy practices of such third party web sites.

7.    Choices Regarding Use of Personal Information.  Upon voluntarily providing your Personal Information to Longview through this Site, Longview will use your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.  Should you at any time decide that you do not want to continue to receive electronic communications, you will have the ability to unsubscribe or “opt out” from such communications by means of a link provided in each such communication, or if not provided therein, by sending an email or contacting us at the contact details provided in the Contact Us section of this Privacy Statement.
