What Information do we Collect?

Anonymous browsing

You can visit this Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself, including your email address. In this case, our Web server may collect the name, address, the IP address and domain you used to access this site, the type and version of browser and operating system you are using, and the web site you came from and visit next. This information is used by us to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about visitors to this site in general. We may also use this data to monitor site performance for systems administration purposes, to make this site easier and more convenient to use and to report information in aggregate form to our advisers.

Providing information to us for services that we offer

If you do choose to use the online services which are available through our site, we will require personal information from you. This will include the following:

How is this Information Used?

The personal information that you provide to us will be placed in our database of client information. Your data will be stored in Canada but may also be made available to an authorized representative of Canada Trade Jobs, who is in your region and is best placed to serve your interests. The details of your education and employment history will be used by us, or our authorized representative, to determine if you are likely to obtain employment as a trade worker in Canada.

If you hire us to find you a job in Canada, we will carry out a more detailed review of your background, which will include contacting your previous employers for references on you. Please note that we will not contact your present employer, unless you give us permission to do so. In the course of the review, we may need to discuss your background with representatives of Canadian training institutions, certification organizations, potential employers or the immigration authorities. When this happens, we will disclose to them only what they need to know, and our sole purpose in doing so will be to advance your prospects of coming to Canada.

We do not sell the personal information we collect from visitors. However, this information may be shared with 3rd parties acting on our behalf or as permitted or required by law, including by an order of any court.

We may use your contact information in order to send you e-mail or other communications regarding updates at the Canada Trade Jobs site. What we e-mail to you and how often we do this will depend on the information we have about you.

If you contact Canada Trade Jobs, your correspondence will be kept on record.

If you provide us with favourable feedback on our services, we reserve the right to show that feedback on our website, without disclosing your name or any of your other personal information.

Personal information provided to us will be kept on record for as long as it is needed to provide service to the client, and for a reasonable time afterwards, or to meet any legal requirements. We reserve the right to delete the information after this time.

We do not knowingly solicit information from children and we do not knowingly market our services to children.

What precautions are taken to ensure the security of this personal information?

When you submit personal information to us through the Canada Trade Jobs website, we use software designed to make that transfer of information secure.

Your personal information is stored in a combination of paper and electronic files. Appropriate safeguards are maintained to protect these files against unauthorized access, disclosure or misuse.

The only employees who have access to your personal information are immigration and administrative personnel. Employees who misuse customers’ personal information may be subject to disciplinary action.

Although we use all reasonable means to protect your personal information, Canada Trade Jobs is not responsible for any improper use of your personal information that is beyond our reasonable control.

What if we change our privacy policy?

Canada Trade Jobs reserves the right to modify or supplement this Privacy Policy statement at any time. If we make any material change to this Privacy Policy, we will update this site to include such changes and post a notice on our home page, for a period of 30 days, with a link to the updated Privacy Policy. Please read any such notice and the new policy statement. If you return to this site after a period of more than 30 days, please check this Privacy Policy to confirm that you are aware of the details of the most recent update. Please look at the top of this Privacy Policy to check the date that it was updated and to confirm that you are familiar with the terms of the most recent update. Your continued use of this site after we post such notice will constitute your acceptance of the new terms and their application to your use of this site. Your use will also constitute your acceptance of these terms as applying to the information that you supplied to us previously. However, we will seek your consent if we want to use your personal information for purposes other than those you have agreed to previously.
