"Personal Information" means information about an identifiable individual as described under Canadian privacy laws, which may include, but is not limited to, your name, e-mail address and telephone number. Personal Information does not include any business contact information that is solely used to communicate with you in relation to your employment, business or profession, such as your name, position name or title, work address, work telephone number, or work e-mail address.
Personal Information also does not include information that has been anonymized or aggregated in such a way that there is no serious possibility it can be used to identify an individual, whether on its own or in combination with other information.
We collect, use and disclose your Personal Information with your consent or as permitted or required by Canadian privacy laws. How we obtain your consent may be express or implied and will depend on the circumstances, as well as the sensitivity of the information collected. If you choose to provide Personal Information to us, we assume that you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of that Personal Information as outlined in this Privacy .
If you wish to withdraw your consent to our collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Information, please contact us using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below. In some cases, withdrawal of your consent may mean that we will no longer be able to provide certain products or services.

Insurdinary.ca uses Google Analytics, which collects the following information:
It is very important to note that the information provided to Insurdinary.ca by Google Analytics is presented to Insurdinary.ca in an anonymous and aggregate form. This information allows us to improve our site performance and understand how users interact with our website. There is no way we are able to identify any person(s) by way of the information provided by Google Analytics. Google Analytics may, on its own, share information with other Google Services, which we are not responsible for. Please visit Google Analytics Terms of Service for more information. There is an option for individuals to opt out of Google Analytics tracking. Please learn more about how to opt-out here.
From time to time, Insurdinary may launch an interest-based marketing campaign often called “retargeting” or “remarketing” in order to display advertisements across third party websites i.e., Facebook or Google. Third party vendors such as Facebook or Google utilize tokens or pixels and/or cookies as unique identifiers. These unique identifiers may result in you seeing an ad for Insurdinary.ca once you have left our website.
We rely on third party services providers to perform a variety of services on our behalf, such as data storage, security and processing service providers, content management systems (like WordPress), email marketing and communication service providers, and research and analytics providers.
If we provide information to service providers, we require that the service providers keep your Personal Information secure, and only handle it for limited purposes. We also require that our service providers comply with applicable privacy laws and only use your Personal Information for the limited purposes for which it was provided. We do not authorize the service providers to disclose your Personal Information to unauthorized parties or to use your Personal Information for their direct marketing purposes.
Additionally, we may use and disclose your information when we believe such use or disclosure is permitted, necessary or appropriate: (a) under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (d) to enforce the terms of the agreements for our products and services; (e) to protect our rights, operations or property; (f) to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.
If we otherwise intend to disclose your Personal Information to a third party, we will identify that third party and the purpose for the disclosure, and obtain your consent.
If you no longer want to receive marketing-related emails from us, you may opt-out of receiving emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email you receive from us. You may also opt-out by contacting us directly using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
We will endeavour to respond to your opt-out request promptly, but we ask that you please allow us a reasonable time to process your request. Please note that if you opt-out from receiving marketing-related emails, we may still need to send you communications about your use of our products or services, or other matters.
We will use, disclose or retain your Personal Information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which that Personal Information was collected and as permitted or required by Canadian privacy laws.
We store all Personal Information in Canada.
However, if you access or use our products and services outside of Canada, you may be subject to different data protection rules than those in Canada. While your Personal Information is outside of Canada, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is located, and those laws may require disclosure of your Personal Information to authorities in that country. For written information about our policies and practices regarding service providers outside of Canada, contact our Privacy Information Officer at the email address below.
We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual and technological security measures with a view to protecting your Personal Information and other information from loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.
Despite the measure outlined above, no method of information transmission or information storage is 100% secure or error-free, so we unfortunately cannot guarantee absolute security. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any information that you provided to us has been compromised), please contact us immediately using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
We expect you, from time to time, to supply us with updates to your Personal Information, when required. We will not routinely update your Personal Information, unless such a process is necessary.
You may make a written request to review any Personal Information about you that we have collected, used or disclosed, and we will provide you with any such Personal Information to the extent required by applicable laws. You may also challenge the accuracy or completeness of your Personal Information in our records. If you successfully demonstrate that your Personal Information in our records is inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend the Personal Information as required.
In certain circumstances, we may not be able to provide you access to all of your Personal Information it holds, such as where it is prohibitively costly to provide, where it contains references or Personal Information of other individuals, or for security, proprietary or legal reasons, including where the information is subject to solicitor-client or litigation privilege. We will provide you the reasoning and rationale for any denial, in whole or in part, of any request for access to your Personal Information we may hold.
We may require that you provide sufficient identification to fulfill your request to access or correct your Personal Information. Any such identifying information will be used only for this purpose. We will not charge you any fees to access your personal information in our records without first providing you with an estimate of the approximate fees, if any.
If you object to how we handle your request, you may have the right to make a complaint to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada or the applicable provincial privacy commissioner.
All comments, questions, concerns or complaints regarding your Personal Information or our privacy practices should be sent to our Privacy Officer as follows:
