We are committed to protecting the privacy of personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act.
We collect personal information that is reasonably necessary for our functions, activities, and client relations. We will not collect personal information in an unfair, unlawful or unreasonably intrusive manner.
We take reasonable steps to ensure that the individual is aware of the purposes for which the information is collected. If you are one of our "business contacts", we may collect basic business contact information from you (eg your name, title and work contact details), or information to foster our relationship (eg. spouse, children's names, interests, etc).
Generally we will not ask to collect "sensitive" information about you. "Sensitive information" means information or an opinion about an individual's racial or ethnic origin, political opinions or memberships, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade association or union, sexual preferences or practices, criminal record or health.
USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We do not sell, rent or trade personal information about you to or with third parties.
Personal information may be shared between Buildingweb employees. In those cases, the purpose for which the information was originally collected will be taken into account. Personal information may be disclosed outside of Buildingweb in the circumstances described below:
A. We may transfer personal information to external service providers who help us operate our business. If we engage external service providers, we require them to:
- commit to complying with the PIPEDA when they handle personal information about you; and
B. Otherwise Buildingweb will only disclose personal information if this is required by law or permitted under the Privacy Act which may include emergency situations and assisting in law enforcement.

"With the growing number of pressures put on Municipalities such as City growth, aging infrastructure, and reduced funding, the need to focus our limited resources where it will have the most impact has been a critical part of our strategic direction. Buildingweb has helped provide needed visibility into our capital planning and is assisting us to better define our short and long term priorities."
