Unless prominently and specifically stated otherwise, the information you provide is never shared outside of MetricAid Inc.
This privacy statement applies to information collected via the internet only in the metricaid.com domain.
Our website may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by MetricAid Inc. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.

What information is considered personal?
According to the PIPEDA, any "information about an identifiable individual" such as name, address, or gender that can be used to identify, distinguish or contact a specific individual is considered personal information and is governed by the PIPEDA. Exceptions include business information such as would be found on an individual's business card or other publicly available information such as contact information listed in a phone directory.
We collect only the information we require to complete your order. Any additional information that we collect for statistical purposes is not mandatory and will be denoted as such. You have the choice of whether you choose to provide additional information. Any additional information will only be used to help us better understand our clients, partners and visitors. Information collected for statistical purposes will only be presented in aggregate form.
Why do we collect this information?
Personal information collected by this site is used for the express purpose of fulfilling your request or order. The collection of personal information is governed by the Personal information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) which authorizes private organizations to collect the minimum personal information needed in order to deliver a requested service.
We may also collect standard information that will be used to review the performance of a website and to look for areas of improvement. We generally make no attempt to link this information to any particular individual unless an individual or entity makes an attempt to damage our system(s) or access information on our servers without the proper authorization.
Some of the information we may collect includes:
- Internet Protocol (IP) address of computers accessing our system
- The types of operating systems and web browsers being used to access our sites
- The Internet Service Provider (ISP) that is used by our visitors
- Date and time information
- Pages visited including length of stay on particular pages
- Information searches and access to help files.
To save you time and make our web services even easier to use, you may create a profile or account using your personal information. The system saves your information and ties it to your email addresses and password. The next time you visit the site, you can simply enter your email address and password and the system will automatically look up the information it needs.
If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.
How can you access your information and either correct or delete your information?
You may access your personal information by contacting our Privacy Officer via email.
How is my information stored and protected?
Your information is stored on our secure servers. For your protection, do not disclose your login information to anyone.
MetricAid Inc. safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. Likewise, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters, numbers and symbols, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Our websites use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on web pages where personal information is required. When entering personal information, we strongly recommend an SSL-enabled web browser. Web browsers developed after Internet Explorer 3 and Netscape 3 use SSL version 3. This protects the confidentiality of your personal and credit card information while it is transmitted over the Internet.
In the event that we are required by court order, subpoena or legal action to disclose personal information about registrants to our systems, we will limit the discloser to only that information which is specifically required by the order.
Who can you contact for more information?
