Loomis Express (“us”, “our”, or “we”) respects your right to privacy and security when providing personal information or payments through digital mediums. We are fully compliant to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act put into effect by the Canadian Department of Justice in 2001.
Below outlines the policies of Loomis Express with respect to the collection of data, information security, and privacy standards.
As a part of our business operations, we routinely collect and retain information about our customers. This information is necessary in allowing us to provide our services or provide information about our services and company. Use of this information by Loomis Express includes, but is not limited to: administration of records; execution of accounting and funding; compliance with laws or regulations; and/or the development of future products.
Loomis Express is the sole owner of the information collected. We will not sell, share, trade, or rent this information to others in ways inconsistent with this statement.
Many of our customers are businesses or other non-person legal entities. While most of the information we receive and collect is not of a personal nature, portions of the transaction information we receive may include public and non-public information about individuals as well as about the entities with which they conduct business activities.
Regardless of the nature of the information, whether it is information we solicit directly from our customers, from visitors to our Web site, or whether we collect the information during the processing of transactions, we regard all such information as “private” and take steps to protect its integrity and confidentiality.
No private information regarding specific persons will be provided to any third party except:
- to obtain commercial and credit information to establish, maintain or renew a customer’s contract(s),
- as may be required to provide any of the services for which a customer has subscribed, as may be legally permitted,
- to assist in preventing or prosecuting fraud, or to otherwise comply with a requirement or request of the government,
- to comply with the rules and regulations of any credit or debit card payment network, or
- with the person’s written consent.
This policy does not preclude our unrestricted use of non-personal, summarized, derived, or aggregate information (i.e., volumes, totals, averages, etc.). In addition, we may provide information, from time to time and as allowed by our customers’ respective contracts, to entities that may have products or services that may be of interest to them.
Information Collected via our Web Site
We may solicit, collect or retain public or personal information regarding customers or visitors to our Web site(s) in order to allow us to respond to requests about products and services, for investor information, etc. Such information (e.g., name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) is voluntarily supplied by the visitor and will be used to contact the visitor to follow up on the visitor’s request.
Commitment to Security, Privacy, and Standards
We take our responsibility to protect the security and privacy of the information we receive seriously. We have established effective policies that define our commitment to data security and the information technology we administer. We continually review our policies and procedures to assure that they are appropriate and effective in meeting our commitments to our community, our customers, and ourselves. Strict internal procedures and control mechanisms require that individuals’ access to information is controlled according to job responsibility and legitimate “need to know.” To the degree reasonably possible, access controls are narrowly defined in order to restrict information access to that which is necessary and consistent with the respective job function(s) of our personnel.
Any suspected attempt to breach our policies and procedures, or to engage in any type of unauthorized action involving our information systems, is regarded as potential criminal activity. All suspected computer mischief will be reported to the appropriate authorities.
We use a variety of controls and measures to protect personal or sensitive information. These include industry standard encryption, physical access security, secured networks and servers, anti-virus protection, vulnerability scans, firewalls, intrusion detection, defense monitoring and other appropriate technology.
We test, review, and update this technology from time to time to improve and enhance our security systems.
An IP (Internet protocol) address is a number assigned to your computer for accessing the Internet. All computer identification on the Internet is conducted using IP addresses to allow other computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. If a visitor requests pages from the Loomis Express Web site, the Loomis Express servers enter the visitor’s IP address into a log. We do not associate IP addresses with personal information received from visitors. We collect IP addresses in order to conduct site analysis. We also use IP address information to conduct system administration, manage communication traffic patterns and to investigate threats, mischief, or “attacks” directed at our site or to our visitors.
We may provide links on the Web site, via advertising and otherwise, to third-party Web sites that are not under our control. Loomis Express does not endorse or make any warranty of any type regarding the content contained on such third-party Web sites or products and services offered therein. We make no representation regarding your use of such Web sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third-party Web sites. Users should be aware when they leave the Loomis Express site and should read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that may collect personally identifiable information. The privacy statement set forth herein applies solely to information collected by us.
You may be provided with a unique identifier such as a merchant number, password, or “PIN” (personal identification number), which is intended to authenticate your identity when accessing our systems. Such identifying items are intended to be secret and to be known, possessed, and used only by you. The effectiveness of these mechanisms for authenticating your identity depends on the maintenance of the confidentiality of these identifying items. Accordingly, these identifying items should be kept in your exclusive possession, carefully protected from the discovery, access, or possession of others. Failure to keep such identifying information in your exclusive possession renders you responsible for the actions of other persons who use this information to access Loomis Express’ systems. Should you become aware or have reason to suspect that a personal identifier has been lost or disclosed to a third-party, you should notify us immediately.
Changes to Information Security and Privacy Statement
In order to ensure that our information security and privacy policies are appropriate and effective and that these policies reflect the ongoing changes in our industry, we review our policies and practices from time to time and may make changes to these policies and practices as we determine them to be warranted. When changes are made that affect this Privacy Statement, our Web site will reflect such changes.
