Privacy and confidentiality
WOSE is committed to respecting the privacy and confidentiality of information it receives, in accordance with WOSE’s Privacy Guidelines, and applicable law. WOSE has established and will continue to maintain reasonable safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of personal information. However, you acknowledge and confirm that the Internet is not a secure medium where privacy and confidentiality can be guaranteed and that complete security and confidentiality of transmissions to and from this site over the Internet is not possible at this time. Your confidential use of this site cannot be guaranteed and you acknowledge that your use of this site (including information you transmit to the site) may be subject to access or manipulation by, or disclosure to, third parties. Without limiting any other disclaimer herein, WOSE and its affiliates shall not be responsible or liable for any damages that you or any other person may suffer in connection with any such breach of privacy, confidentiality or security.
Your personal information
Certain WOSE websites may require you to provide personal information to WOSE, such as sites that require you to register in order to access the site. Such personal information (for example, your name, birthday, postal code, and e-mail address if applicable) is used to help provide you with a secure, private and convenient experience on the site.
For sites requiring you to register:
Communication with WOSE: If you send WOSE an e-mail through our newsletter feature, the e-mail address you provide at registration will be used to contact you with our reply.
Marketing from WOSE: You will not receive any marketing or advertisements from WOSE at the e-mail address you provide to WOSE.
Marketing from third parties: We will never sell your information to any third parties, or share it with any other organization for marketing purposes.
Remember that the security of e-mail communication cannot be guaranteed. Do not send private or confidential information to WOSE via e-mail (e.g., your Social Insurance Number, birthday). Also, WOSE will never send you an e-mail message requesting personal information. Any such request is a fraudulent attempt to gain your valuable personal information (a technique known as “phishing”).
“Cookies” are small items of data that websites store in your browser. These data files contain information the site can use to track and organize the pages you have visited, and to gather information. Some of our web-based applications use “cookie” technology to measure site activity and tailor information to fit your personal interests. This helps us deliver a superior website experience that is designed to be fast, secure and personalized. WOSE uses only “session” cookies; that is to say, cookies placed by London Life are deleted when you close your browser, further protecting your privacy and security.
WOSE collects some limited information about your connection to the Internet. This information includes your computer’s IP address, which is your numerical address on the Internet that lets our servers know where to send the web pages you view. This information is collected to help measure traffic to our site and the performance of our servers, and to help diagnose and address problems when they arise. (Google Analytics)
