By submitting to us your Personal Information or using our website (the “Website”), you accept this Policy and consent to its terms and any terms otherwise described to you at the time of collection of your Personal Information. If you do not agree with the terms of this Policy, please do not use the Website or otherwise provide your Personal Information to us.

What is Personal Information?
“Personal Information” is information about an identifiable individual recorded in any form. By Canadian federal law, it does not include publicly available information, such as business contact information or a public directory listing of your name, address, telephone number or information that is aggregated and not associated with a specific individual, including demographic information and statistics.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
When you send us a Communication, we will collect the following types of information from you: name, address, email, company, title, investor type, your comments and questions, and your areas of interest in our company or industry.
In addition, our Website may automatically record some general information about your visit which we then use for statistical analysis to help make our Website more useful to visitors. This information might include: the Internet domain for your Internet service provider, such as “company.com” or “service.ca” and the IP address of the computer accessing the Website, such as “ppp-55”; the type of operating system you are using, such as Windows or Macintosh; and the date and time you visit our Website and the web pages that you visit on our website, along with the address of the previous website you were visiting, if you linked to us from another website. This information is used on an aggregate basis and in a non-personally identifiable form, including: (i) for Website and system administration purposes, (ii) to improve the Website, (iii) to conduct internal reviews of the number of visitors to the Website (iv) to help us better understand visitors’ use of our Website; and (v) to protect the security or integrity of our Website when necessary (the “Analytical Purposes”).
We also use “cookies” that identify you as a return visitor and which can help us tailor information to suit your individual preferences. A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store the cookie on your hard drive. Cookies are used to save you time, provide you with a more meaningful visit and to measure website activity. Cookies do not contain any personally identifying information. Many browsers allow you to disable cookie collection if you wish, or inform you when a cookie is being stored on your hard drive. Please refer to your browser instructions or the help section of your browser to learn more about these functions.
How Will Aquila Use the Personal Information We Collect?
Aquila will not share or disclose your Personal Information with any other third party without your consent, including for the purpose of marketing their products and services to you or providing you with online behavioral (or targeted) advertising either by Aquila or a third party.
Aquila will only use Personal Information to respond to your enquiry and will not use Personal Information for any other purpose without your consent.
You may indicate that you are interested in receiving offers or information from Aquila.

We may contact you about these products, services, or events by way of any of the methods that you consented to at the time your information was collected.
Other than as required by law (for example, in response to a court order or subpoena, or to comply with local or federal regulations), where disclosure is made to a person who needs the information because of an emergency that threatens the life, health or personal security of an individual, for the purposes of collecting a debt owed by you to us, or where we sell any or all of our business and/or assets to a third party, your Personal Information will not be used for any other purpose without your consent.
By sending any Communications to us, we will assume by contacting us and providing Personal Information, you are consenting to our collection, use and disclosure of such Personal Information in order to respond to your Communication, including consenting to your Personal Information contained in that Communication being transferred within and processed by Aquila or our consultants for the purpose for which you transmitted it to us.

Withdrawal of Consent
You always have the option to tell us not to share your Personal Information with third parties or to exclude you from offers for products or services. Also, we will not refuse to provide a product or service to you if you choose not to provide us with your Personal Information, unless your failure to provide such information makes us unable to provide such product or service.
Processing of Personal Information
Retention and Disposal of Personal Information
We implement security safeguards to protect Personal Information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification, regardless of the format in which the information is held. We use physical, organizational and technological measures to protect Personal Information.
We will keep Personal Information only for as long as it remains necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law. We use secure means of disposing of Personal Information.

In the event you have questions about the accuracy of factual information we have collected about you, you can have access to that information in order to verify and update it.
