Website Privacy Policy for Canada
Effective Date:  September, 2020
Last Updated: September, 2020

At Similasan Corporation (“Similasan”), we are committed to maintaining the accuracy, confidentiality and security of your personal information. We have developed this Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) to describe our specific privacy policies and practices and how we collect, use, communicate, disclose, keep or destroy the personal information of those individuals who visit our website at similasan.ca (the “Website”).

Privacy Policy Effective for Canada
It is Similasan’s policy to comply with the privacy legislation within each jurisdiction in which we operate. Sometimes the privacy legislation and/or an individual's right to privacy are different from one jurisdiction to another. This Privacy Policy covers only those activities that are subject to the provisions of Canada's federal and provincial privacy laws, as applicable.

This Privacy Policy has a limited scope and application. Consequently, the rights and obligations contained in this Privacy Policy may not be available to all individuals or in all jurisdictions.

What Is Personal Information?
For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, personal information is any information which relates to an individual and allows that individual to be identified.

What Personal Information Do We Collect?
You can visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself, including your email address. Our web server may collect information related to your visit to our website, including: the IP address and domain used to access our website; the type and version of your browser; the website you came from to access our website; the page you entered and exited at; any website page that is viewed by that IP address; and what country you are from. We use this information to monitor our website's performance (e.g., number of visits, average time spent, page views) and for our business purposes such as working to continually upgrade our website.

You may see advertisements about us on other websites or social media sites that you visit.  That is not because we have individually identified you.  We do not track you when you leave our Website, and we do not disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties. Instead, you may see our advertisements on other websites and social media platforms either because you fit within a demographic profile that we identified to a third-party marketer or platform for advertising purposes. We do not provide personally identifiable information about you to third party marketers, other websites, or social media platforms, and we do not receive personally identifiable information from any of those sources about you.

In addition, we collect the personal information that you submit to our website, such as your name, address and any other contact or other information that you choose to provide by:

• Using the "Contact Us" portion of this website;
• By corresponding with a representative of Similasan via email using the hyperlinks created for that purpose.

Where you request information from us, we may use the email address that you provide to send you the requested information.

What About Links to Other Websites?
Our Website may contain links to other websites that may be subject to less stringent privacy standards. We cannot assume any responsibility for the privacy practices, policies or actions of the third parties that operate these websites. Similasan is not responsible for how such third parties collect, use, communicate, disclose, keep or destroy your personal information. You should review the privacy policies of these websites before providing them with personal information.

Why Do We Collect, Use, Communicate and Disclose Personal Information?
The personal information collected is used to respond to your inquiries and for purposes required by law e.g. reporting of adverse drug reactions to Health Canada.

In situations where such personal information is needed for the performance of their duties or the carrying out of their mandates or contracts, we may give access to your personal information to our authorized employees, contractors, consultants, mandataries, agents, affiliates and other parties to a contract for work or services who require to hold, use, communicate or disclose such information on our behalf, to assist us with establishing, maintaining and managing our relationship with you. In addition, personal information may be communicated, disclosed or transferred to another party in the event of a change in ownership of, or a grant of a security interest in, all or a part of Similasan.

We may collect, use, communicate or disclose your personal information without your knowledge or consent where we are permitted to do so, or as provided for or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements such as reporting adverse drug reactions to Health Canada.

Your Consent Is Important to Us
Consent to the collection, use, communication or disclosure of your personal information should be manifest, free, and enlightened, and should be given for specific purposes. Such consent is valid for the length of time needed to achieve the purposes for which it was requested.

You may change or withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, by contacting our Privacy Officer using the contact information set out below. In some circumstances, a change in or withdrawal of consent may severely limit our ability to provide products or services to, or acquire products or services from, you. All communications with respect to such withdrawal or variation of consent should be in writing and addressed to our Privacy Officer.

How Is Your Personal Information Protected?
Similasan endeavors to maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards that are necessary to ensure the protection of the personal information collected, used, communicated, kept or destroyed and that are reasonable given the sensitivity of the personal information in question, the purposes for which it is to be used, the quantity and distribution of the information and the medium on which it is stored. These safeguards are designed to prevent your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification, communication or disclosure.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while this website strives to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once this Website receives your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

Updating Your Personal Information
It is important that the information contained in our records is both accurate and current. We ensure that any file held on you is up-to-date and accurate when used to make a decision in relation to you. If your personal information happens to change during the course of our relationship, please keep us informed of such changes.

In some circumstances, we may not agree with your request to change your personal information and will instead append an alternative text to the record in question.

Access to and Rectification or Deletion of Your Personal Information
You can ask to see the personal information and to receive communication thereof and confirmation of the existence of a file on you that we hold about you, free of charge. If you want to review, verify or correct your personal information, please contact our Privacy Officer using the contact information set out below. Please note that any such communication must be in writing.

In the event that we cannot provide you with access to your personal information, we will endeavor to inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.

Revisions to this Privacy Policy
Similasan from time to time, may make changes to this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in its legal or regulatory obligations or in the manner in which we deal with your personal information. We will post any revised version of this Privacy Policy on our website www.similasan.ca, and we encourage you to refer back to it on a regular basis.

Interpretation of this Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy includes examples but is not intended to be restricted in its application to such examples; therefore, where the word "including" is used, it shall mean "including without limitation".

This Privacy Policy does not create or confer upon any individual any rights, or impose upon Similasan any obligations outside of, or in addition to, any rights or obligations imposed by Canada's federal and provincial privacy laws, as applicable. Should there be, in a specific case, any inconsistency between this Privacy Policy and Canada's federal and provincial privacy laws, as applicable, this Privacy Policy shall be interpreted, in respect of that case, to give effect to, and comply with, such privacy laws.
