If You have questions or concerns regarding our policy or practices, please contact our privacy officer by e-mail at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. If You do not receive an acknowledgment of Your inquiry and/or Your inquiry has not been satisfactorily addressed, please contact MVI ownership at: email@example.com.
We may provide areas on contingentSee where You can post information about Yourself and others and communicate with others or upload content. Such postings are governed by the MVI's TOS. In addition, such postings may appear on other areas of the Internet or when searches are executed on the subject of Your posting. We cannot control who reads Your posting or what other users may do with the information You voluntarily post. Therefore, we urge You to exercise discretion and caution with respect to Your Personal Information.
Registration is required if You wish to use contingentSee. As part of the registration process, we will require that You enter and submit certain information that is relevant to the purposes of contingentSee. You may need to register twice, once to register with contingentSee and a second time after You have downloaded certain files from contingentSee.ca. We collect the following user-submitted information (“Personal Information”) from LUs at registration: first name, last name, date of birth, sex, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address/username, password, office address, firm size, Law Society of Ontario number, years of experience practicing law, area(s) of claimed subject matter expertise, spoken language(s), and credit card, debit card, and/or other types of payment account information. We collect the following user-submitted information (“Personal Information”) from CUs at registration: the first three characters from the registrant’s postal code. Following CU registration, we may require a valid e-mail address to be entered by a CU in order for that CU to accept a bid and receive the LUs contact information; however, we do not store this e-mail address on our system.
There are certain types of device data that contingentSee cannot access without Your consent. The various application marketplaces through which MVI may offer contingentSee to the public will notify You the first time contingentSee requires permission to access certain types of data and will let You decide whether or not to consent to that request. All types of data which is not covered by the definition of Personal Information or Traffic Data (defined below) is considered to be “User Data”.
Upon registration or the use of our location-enabled services (for example, when You access contingentSee from a mobile device), we may need to collect and process information about Your actual Global Positioning System location (including the latitude, longitude, and/or altitude of Your mobile device) and the time the location information was recorded. Some of these services require Your Personal data for the feature to work and we may associate location data with Your device identification and other information we hold about You. If You wish to use the particular feature, You will be asked for Your consent. If You do not want Your location information collected when You use contingentSee, please contact Your device manufacturer or platform provider to determine how to disable the collection of this information. When You use contingentSee, we automatically collect and store certain information about Your computer or device and Your activities including but not limited to: a) the IP address of Your computer; b) the unique mobile device identifier; c) technical information about Your computer or mobile device such as the type of device, mobile device identification number, Web browser, other browser information (e.g. size, connection speed, and connection type), and/or operating system or platform; d) Your preferences and settings (time zone, language, etc.); and/or e) Your Internet Service Provider or mobile carrier name.
You may send electronic information or physical documentation to us in the following forms: messages or transaction information relating to Your interactions with other users; receipts, Personal Information in text and/or picture form; and/or other subscriber-generated content provided to us in the normal course of Your use of contingentSee, including but not limited to posts, profiles, comments, suggestions, forwarded messages, feedback information, usage information, transaction information, and/or Traffic Data (as defined below). We may collect Your Personal Information when You transmit it to us by use of one of our Web forms or other interactions with contingentSee, by e-mail, or by any other means of communication. We may collect and store information (including Personal Information) locally on Your device using mechanisms such as browser Web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
"Traffic Data" is collected by contingentSee and our Third-Party (defined below) traffic analysis provider(s) through the use of software that is included on contingentSee as well as cookies that are stored temporarily on Your computer/device. Together, these technologies help us manage our content by identifying which content is effective.
We may share LU first names and user comments or feedback with Third-Parties. We will not tie any other information, other than Your first name, that can identify You to Your comments or feedback. However, Third-Parties may be able to tell who You are from Your comments, particularly if You provide Your full name or Your contact information in the comments. We may post/re-post Your social media content and other information shared by You.
In the event that MVI, or all or a portion of our business, or one or more of its divisions, is acquired by one or more Third-Parties as a result of an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation, liquidation or another similar transaction, Your Personal Information shall be one of the transferred assets.
We may retain Your Personal information while You have an account with us and thereafter for as long as we need it for purposes not prohibited by applicable laws and subject to the provisions in our TOS.
User Data may be kept by MVI for an indefinite period; however, this does not constitute a guarantee that MVI will keep the data indefinitely. Retained data will primarily be used in aggregate and anonymized format to drive business intelligence and analytics, amongst other purposes.
To use certain services on contingentSee, we may require credit card, debit card, and/or other types of payment account information. By submitting this information through contingentSee, You expressly consent to sharing of Your information with Third-Party payment processors, other Third-Party service providers, and applicable businesses.
A “Data Breach” is defined as any unauthorized access to the storage locations of the data, or access to a storage location by an individual, that has/is suspected of having performed unauthorized activities. In the unlikely event that MVI believes the security of Your Personal Information in MVI's possession or control may have been compromised and when this creates a real risk of significant harm to You, or if MVI otherwise believes that a notification is appropriate, MVI may seek to notify You of that development, pursuant to both MVI's desire to keep You informed and MVI's legal requirement to do so. If a notification is appropriate, MVI may notify You by the e-mail address registered to Your account (if any).
By posting User Data on contingentSee, You hereby grant to MVI a worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty-free, and sub-licensable right to use, create derivative works of, modify, and/or to distribute (including without limitation, distribution online, through multiple channels, and bundled with other applications or materials) such content, and further, You agree to waive any moral rights to such User Data, and agree that MVI may modify or adapt the User Data in order to transmit, display, and/or distribute it over other applications and in various media. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless MVI from and against any Claims (as defined in the TOS) arising from the nature and/or the ownership of the content submitted and any claims of infringement of Third-Party intellectual property related to such User Data. MVI relies on You to ensure that the Personal Information You enter into our system is as true, accurate, complete, and current as necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. You may make changes or corrections to Your Personal Information at any time. When updating Your Personal Information, we may ask You to verify Your identity before we can act on Your request. Unless required by law, we may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical. Where we can provide information access and correction, and when required by law, we will do so for free. We also make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information in our reports, displays, articles, and support queries. However, You must verify all information created from Your use of contingentSee. We recommend that You consult a professional before completing any government or regulatory filing or otherwise relying upon the information, as the use of this information is at Your own risk. You are responsible for ensuring that the information You have entered into our system is true, accurate, complete, and current.
MVI may capture and manage all user privacy preferences. These preferences may be tracked in the database and attached to Your records. If these preferences are changes, the modifications may be incremental, and added to an audit log. Tracking of Your consent to the collection, storage, and use of Your Personal Information may also be recorded for the purposes of an audit log for consent. To ensure that the data is traceable, the source of the data may be logged, as well as a timestamp for the transaction.
We will never send e-mail messages to customers requesting confidential information such as passwords, credit card numbers, and/or social insurance/security numbers. Please do not act on any such e-mails (as You may compromise Your Personal Information by replying or by following links to a fraudulent website) and report Your receipt of one right away. We do not knowingly or intentionally collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If You are under the age of 13, please do not submit any Personal Information to us, and rely on a parent or guardian to assist You.
