Atlantic Institute for Resilience Inc. (herein referred to as “AIR”, “we”, “us”, and “our”) is committed to respecting and preserving the privacy of those who use access and use our websites, software, content, products, and services (collectively, the “Site”). This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) governs the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information that we gather you (herein referred to as “you” and “your”) as you use the Site. By accessing or using the Site, you agree that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by this Privacy Policy. If you do not accept the terms of this Privacy Policy, you may not access or use the Site.

As part of our regular review of all our policies and procedures, we may change this Privacy Policy from time to time without notice to you. The date on which this Privacy Policy was last updated will appear at the top of this page. You should periodically review this Privacy Policy so that you are aware of any changes which might affect you. Please also carefully read our Terms and Conditions of Use found at [] prior to using the Site.  

Collection of your Information

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, personal information (“Personal Information”) means any information about an identifiable individual, as may be defined or limited under applicable privacy legislation. Personal information excludes anonymous or de-identified data that is not associated with a particular individual (herein referred to as “Non-identifiable Information”). Personal Information and Non-identifiable Information are collectively referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Information”.

We only collect Information that we believe is reasonably necessary for a legitimate purpose, as further described below. In order to access different services and use the Site, you may be required to register an Account, as set out in our Terms, which requires you to submit an active email address. We may also collect Information that you, or another, provides directly to us by filling in forms, and Non-identifiable Information that we collect from cookies or tracking software we utilize. In addition to Information collected while you use the Site, we may also collect Information in other ways such as over the phone, via email and through location tracking devices as further described below.

The choice to provide us with Personal Information is yours. In certain cases, your decision to withhold Information may limit the services that we can provide to you through the Site.


Use of your Information

We will only disclose your Information for purposes identified in this Privacy Policy, or if required by law.  The Information that we collect and store is primarily used for the following purposes:

  1. to provide you with access to the Site;
  2. to provide you with information relating to our Site;
  3. to follow up on your comments and suggestions;
  4. to manage and develop our business systems and operations; 
  5. to monitor and conduct an analysis of our website traffic and Site usage patterns; 
  6. to post customer testimonials, comments or reviews; 
  7. to protect our rights and property; or
  8. to lessen a serious threat to personal safety, health or security.

We will not sell, share, trade or otherwise distribute your Personal Information to third parties, except in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, we reserve the right to use Non-identifiable Information for any commercial purpose in our sole discretion.  Such commercial purpose may include, but is not limited to, sale to third parties to allow them to send targeted advertising messages.

We reserve the right to share any Information collected from you with affiliates, or to transfer such Information to a successor entity or to an entity which purchases substantially all of the assets of AIR.

We sometimes contract with outside organizations to perform specialized services such as hosting the Site. Our suppliers may at times receive, process or handle some of your Information. Only the Information necessary to perform the services under the contract is given to the supplier. Under their contracts with us, our suppliers may use such Information only to carry out the contracted service and must not store or use the Information for any other purpose. Our contracts with suppliers require that they provide a level of protection for your Information that is comparable to our own.   


To ensure that your Personal Information is secure, we have put in place commercially suitable procedures to safeguard the Information we collect against unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification. Nonetheless, transmission of information on the internet is not completely secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of data sent to us electronically on our Site, by email or otherwise and transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk. Likewise, the storage of information is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of data stored on our system and storage of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk.


Updating your Information and Correcting Errors

You have the right to access, verify, and amend all of your Personal Information.  Since we use your Personal Information to provide services to you and others, it is important that the information be accurate and up-to-date. If any of your Personal Information changes, is inaccurate, or is incomplete, please inform us so that we can make any necessary changes.
