In order to create and maintain a customer account and to place orders for products or services on our website or by telephone and facsimile numbers, it is necessary for CanadianInsulin.com to collect detailed personal information from customers, and to obtain consent to disclose such information to other service providers and health professionals to facilitate customer requests for products and/or services. The collection and administration of this information is detailed below:
Principle 1 – Accountability
CanadianInsulin.com is responsible for maintaining and protecting personal information under its control. We monitor our policies and personal information safeguards on an ongoing basis.
Principle 2 – Identifying Purposes
CanadianInsulin.com collects customer personal information such as names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, and fax numbers for account registration. In order to provide requested products and/or services, fulfill customer orders, and process payments, additional information will be collected (i.e. billing information) in connection with the use of our website technologies, such as: cookies, tags and scripts used by CanadianInsulin.com and our partners, marketing partners, affiliates, and/or analytics or service providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ behavior when browsing our website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and/or clickstream data.
We may combine this automatically-collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you.
