Collecting and Using Personal Information
Welcome to the Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. web and associated services.

We appreciate your interest in our professional standards and ethics we believe in.
As part of our services to you, whether they be inspection, consultancy, electronic or sales services, Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. collects personal information about you only when you provide that information to us voluntarily, and it is used by us to:

  1. distribute information to site users
  2. promote programs, services and site user and client benefits
  3. solicit site user and customer views
  4. analyze demographic information on site user and clients
  5. process authorized payments
  6. facilitate networking
  7. harness site user and customer expertise

Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. distributes mailing information to authorized business partners providing site user and customer benefits at the time a user subscribes to a particular service. In the event that site user subscription is not renewed, all information is retained for three years and then achieved for demographic analysis by staff.
All site users and customers have access to their personal information through the On-line Site user Directory where they can make corrections directly.
Site users and customers should verify their identity with a user ID and password provided to the site user and customer upon joining.

Any non-public personal information that you may provide via our sites will be used solely for the purposes stated in this privacy statement. In some cases, and in all cases where required by law or regulation, you will be able to update the information that you provide to us either by sending us an e-mail or, where you have established personal profiles with
us, by updating your profile online. Please refer to the specific pages where data is collected for more information.
Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. and its affiliated companies unless

(a) expressly authorized by you,
(b) necessary to enable Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. its contractors or agents to perform certain functions for us, or
(c) required or permitted by law.

In all cases, we will disclose the information consistent with applicable laws and regulations and we will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the purpose it was provided.

By “personal information,” we mean data that is considered personally identifiable to an individual, such as a name, address, site user and site registration number, e-mail address, or telephone number, this information may include information that can be used to profile you enabling us to better deliver services to you.  This includes, but is not restricted to your provincial location and your status in relation to Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc.

From time to time, we may request extra personal information from you at our sites or services in order to deliver better services or requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service.

The specific uses of personal information in connection with the foregoing purposes will be limited to what a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances.

If we plan to use personal information we have collected for a purpose not previously identified, we will identify and document the purpose before such additional use. We will state the identified purposes in such a manner that you can reasonably understand how your personal information will be used or disclosed.

Your E-Mail
We welcome your comments or questions about our websites and have provided e-mail boxes for that purpose. We will share your comments and questions with our customer service representatives and those most capable of addressing your questions and concerns.

Please note that your e-mail, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead via non-cellular telephone at the numbers provided at various locations on our sites.

There are some locations on Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. websites where we have made special provisions for a more secure environment in which we can exchange information with you. At each of these locations, we will provide you with appropriate instructions.

Other Information; “Cookies” and “Tags”
You should also be aware that when you visit our websites, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with “usage data,” such as the number of visitors we receive or what pages are visited most often. This data helps us to analyze and improve the usefulness of the information we provide at these websites.
Like most commercial website owners, we may use what is known as “cookie” technology. A “cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser when you link to that website. It is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the website is able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract other personal information about you, such as your name or address.
We may also use what is known as “client-side page tagging”, which uses a code on each page to write certain information about the page and the visitor to a log when a page is rendered by your web browser. This technique is also commonly used on commercial websites. “Tagging” does result in a JavaScript program running on your computer, but it is limited to providing information about the page that you are requesting and the configuration of your browser. It will not read any of your data files, or execute any additional programs. It does not extract any personal information about you, such as your name or address. You can prevent tagging by disabling JavaScript in your browser, but that may prevent you from using all of our website’s functions.

Linking to Other Sites
From time to time, Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. websites may provide links to other websites, not owned or controlled by Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc., that we think might be useful or of interest to you. We cannot, however, be responsible for the privacy practices used by other website owners or the content or accuracy of those other websites. Links to various non-Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. websites do not constitute or imply endorsement by Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. of these websites, any products or services described on these sites, or of any other material contained in them.

Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. has adopted and adheres to stringent security standards designed to protect non-public personal information at against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. Among the safeguards that Purple Martin Property Inspection Inc. has developed for this site are administrative, physical and technical barriers that together form a protective firewall around the information stored at this site.
We periodically subject our site to simulated intrusion tests and have developed comprehensive disaster recovery plans.
