Syntegrity may, in its discretion, amend this Privacy Statement from time to time. To ensure you remain informed about the information we collect and how we use it, material changes to our statement will be reflected here.

YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT
Please read this Privacy Statement carefully. By browsing our website you agree to be bound by this Privacy Statement.
INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT, AND HOW WE USE IT
Syntegrity collects information from you when you subscribe to our newsletter and submit contact request forms. If you do not provide such information, you will not be able to subscribe to our newsletter or submit contact request forms. Some of Syntegrity’s forms may ask you to give us contact information, unique personal identifiers, subject areas of interest and/or demographic information. We may use this data to tailor your experience on the Site with relevant Syntegrity material and/or customer service and outreach.
We sometimes aggregate demographic information, and the types of systems and browsers of users for internal purposes, so that we may better understand the Site’s user population, identify subject areas of interest, and determine whether the Site is designed to work with the computer settings of a majority of our visitors. In addition, Syntegrity may conduct user surveys on the Web or use technologies to provide Syntegrity with information in a number of areas, such as user identity, user viewing habits, whether or not users found what they were searching for, whether the Site content is relevant to user needs, and the like. Syntegrity uses the information gathered from such surveys to improve our web content, navigation, and overall visitor experience and to provide you with relevant Syntegrity materials.
Any personal information that is provided, such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, subject areas of interest, etc., allows Syntegrity to inform you about updates to the service and to notify you about other events and services offered by Syntegrity that may be of interest to you. We do not and will not sell, share, rent or otherwise make available any of that information to other parties, except that we may disclose the information to third parties who perform services on our behalf and have a need to access the information in connection with those services. Any third parties will only process this information to the extent to which and within the limits that Syntegrity itself is permitted to process that data. In addition, Syntegrity may disclose your contact information in response to inquiries by bona-fide rights owners in connection with allegations of infringement of copyright or other proprietary rights arising from information that you have posted on the Site or otherwise provided to Syntegrity. Syntegrity also provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us at the points where we request information.
HOW WE MIGHT SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
The third parties with whom we may need to share personal information to help us provide services and products to you and to run our Website include:
- our affiliates;
- our advisors;
- our third-party service providers who process information on our behalf to help run some of our internal business operations including email distribution, IT services and marketing and events services;
- law enforcement bodies to comply with any legal obligation or court order
Syntegrity is an organization based in North American and we may need to transfer personal information which is collected on the Site or through other means across Syntegrity offices to help operate our business efficiently. This also includes third parties located in both Canada and the USA. These arrangements may involve your personal information being located in both Canada and the USA where privacy laws differ. We only make these arrangements or transfers where we are satisfied that adequate levels of protection are in place to protect information held in that country. In addition, the Site may be viewed and accessed anywhere in the world including countries that may not have laws regulating the use and transfer of personally identifiable information. By using the Site, submitting information through this site, or submitting personal information to Syntegrity through other means you voluntarily consent to such international transfer and hosting of such information to those countries and parties.
From time to time, we may send you information regarding services, publications, products and events that we perceive may be of interest to you or your business. You may receive this information by hard copy mailing or email. If, at any time, you prefer not to receive further communications from us in any or all forms (except in connection with information, products, publications, events or services that you specifically request), you will have the ability to unsubscribe from such communications by means of a link provided in every e-mail that is sent to you by us.
We may collect e-mail addresses at the point of subscription from users who wish to receive e-mail notification of publications and press releases in identified subject areas of interest, and/or those who send us e-mail messages, express interest regarding our services or employment opportunities, or register for conferences and other Syntegrity-sponsored events. We will not, however, share any e-mail addresses with any third party or send unsolicited e-mail to any of the addresses we collect, except in very limited circumstances as set forth in this Privacy Statement.
Syntegrity also uses Conversion Beacons (short bits of HTML computer code) inserted in the source code of designated website pages. These beacons, used with industry standard browser cookie technology and standard html coding, allow us to track analytics to the Site and email flow between you and us. Email recipients who receive a Conversion Beacon enabled email message will receive a small unique cookie that is stored in their browser session, which is later used to connect the email recipient with the subsequent recipient activity on the Site.
Syntegrity has in place appropriate technological and operational security processes designed to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. Only authorized employees and contractors will have access to any data provided by you, and that access is limited by need. Each employee or contractor having access to any personally-identifiable information is obligated to maintain its confidentiality. Although we take steps that are generally accepted as industry standard to protect your personally-identifiable information, Syntegrity cannot guarantee that your personally-identifiable information will not become accessible to unauthorized persons and Syntegrity cannot be responsible for any actions resulting from a breach of security when information is supplied over the internet or any public computer network.
