At Chainyard, Chainyard Supplier Management Inc., and our parent IT People Corporation (the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), we respect and protect the privacy of our website visitors (“you,” “visitor,” or “your”).  We created this “Privacy Policy” to demonstrate our commitment to your right of privacy and to describe our practices for how we collect and use your personal information.  This Privacy Policy applies to information that we may receive, collect, or maintain about you when you visit (the “Site,”).  By visiting the Site, you expressly consent to the use and disclosure of your information as described below.  If you do not agree with the terms set out in this Privacy Policy, please do not visit the Site, or check any of the boxes described herein, and please delete any cookies placed on your web browser and hard drive by the Site. 

Except as specifically set forth herein, this Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected by third party websites or services that you may access through the Site or that you submit to us through email, text message or other electronic message, or offline.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any third party websites.  Visitors who link to third party websites from the Site should check the privacy and security policy statements of such third party websites to understand the policies and practices of such third-party websites, as we are not responsible for those policies and practices. If you disclose your information to other websites on the internet, you do so at your own risk as different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of such information. 

Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will use it.

Information We Receive or Collect From You

You may give us data about you when you:  

  1. access or use the Site, for example, identifying information such as your name, information about the organization you represent, contact information, email address, or IP address, (“Visitor Information”);
  2. contact or correspond with us (for example via phone, email or otherwise); or 
  3. complete a survey about the use of the Site.

Purpose and Legal Basis for Processing your Data and the Visitor Information

The Company has lawful bases to collect, use and share your Visitor Information and any personal data we receive from, collect or maintain about you.  Lawful bases include: your consent (as provided for in this Privacy Policy, and the Cookie Policy); contract (where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you); obligation to comply with laws that apply to us; protection of the vital interests of a natural person, such as in the event of an emergency; and other legitimate interests including, but not limited to, where processing is necessary to: 

  1. protect you or the Company from threats (such as security threats or fraud);
  2. enable us to administer our business, such as for quality control and customer service;
  3. manage corporate transactions; and/or
  4. understand and improve our business and visitor relationships generally.

Where we have a legal basis to use your personal data without consent, this Privacy Policy fulfils our duty to process personal data fairly and lawfully and in a manner that you would expect given the nature of our relationship with you, by giving you appropriate notice and explanation of the way in which your personal data will be used.  Where consent is required for our use of your personal data as described above, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent and cease your use of the Site.  If you decide to withdraw your consent, such withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before such withdrawal. 

Your Visitor Information will be kept confidential and will be used to support your relationship with us.  Except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy, we will not sell, rent, or lease to others your Visitor Information or any other personal information we receive from, collect or maintain about you.   

As set forth above, if you email us, we may keep your message, email address, and contact information to respond to your message.  In certain instances, our response may be provided to third parties as necessary to address certain problems, comments, and requests. 

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we originally collected it for.  To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements. 

We may share your Visitor Information for marketing purposes.  Those uses will be subject to such third party’s privacy policies.  Also, the Company may share your Visitor Information with third parties in aggregated and/or anonymized form.   

Special Cases in which We Share Personal Information 

We may share your information, including Visitor Information and personal information, with a third party in connection with a merger, sale, or acquisition, or a bankruptcy.  Also, we may disclose your information to processors and/or subprocessors and businesses with whom we are under common corporate control.   

All of our affiliated legal entities and businesses that receive your information from us will comply with the terms of this Privacy Policy with respect to their use and disclosure of such information.  Whenever your information is disclosed under this paragraph, we may also disclose such information on a non-aggregated, non-anonymous basis.   

Under certain circumstances, Visitor Information and personal information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to applicable law, judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or orders (such disclosures, “Disclosures Required by Law”).  In such circumstances, you acknowledge the Company may disclose such information to the extent necessary to comply with such legal requirement.  Also, we may share your Visitor Information or personal information in an emergency if necessary to protect the safety of Company employees, agents, visitors or any person.  Again, when your information is disclosed under this paragraph, we may also disclose such information on a non-aggregated, non-anonymous basis. 

We may also share Visitor Information and personal information with our service providers, business partners, suppliers, sub-contractors or agents who perform services for us, as well as our professional advisers (including our lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers), and analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimization of the Site.

Security of the Information Collected

Within the Company, only authorized Company personnel have access to personal information.  Such personnel have been informed by the Company of their obligation to preserve the confidentiality of such personal information. The Company employees who have access to such personal information may use it only in accordance with the principles set out in the Privacy Policy and applicable legislation and regulation.

Where there is no adequacy decision by the European Commission in respect of a country (to the extent that they are outside the EEA or Switzerland), which means it is not deemed to provide an adequate level of protection to your personal data, we will ensure your personal data receives an adequate level of protection.  For example, each such transfer to a third party will be protected by contractual commitments and further assurances (where appropriate) such as the European Commission’s approved Standard Contractual Clauses.
