Personal Information Protection Policy
As part of our business, Aria Solutions Inc. (“Aria”) will sometimes collect, use and disclose personal information from our customers, visitors, subscribers or other interested parties (collectively, the “Users”). This includes personal information that we have received directly from our Users, such as through our websites, software applications, social media pages, HTML-formatted email messages and other services provided by us both online and offline, as well as from other sources, like public databases, from our joint marketing partners or from other trusted third-party service providers.
Regardless of its source, Aria treats personal information that comes into its possession or control with the care and diligence that our Users expect and which Aria is legally obligated to provide, in particular pursuant to the Personal Information and Protection Act (Alberta). As part of that commitment, Aria has put in place the policies described below so that our Users can understand how or when their information might be collected, used or disclosed.
The types of personal information that Aria collects
In the course of our business, Aria collects personal information from our Users. Personal information is any information that identifies you as an individual, and may include, but is not limited to, your name, mailing address, phone number or email address. Personal information does not include non-identifying information, like browser and device information, app usage data, cookies, IP and MAC addresses (in most circumstances), or certain publicly available information.
Aria collects personal information both directly from Users, as well as through other sources, including our joint marketing partners and other third-party services providers. Some of these partners and third-party services providers may be located outside of Canada.
Why Aria collects, uses and discloses personal information
Aria collects, uses and discloses personal information in order to provide Users with quality products, effective customer service and with a customized use experience. The specific purposes for which we collect, use and disclose personal information include:

- To allow you to participate in sweepstakes, contests and similar promotions and to administer these activities (some of these activities have additional rules, which could contain additional information about how we use and disclose your personal information, so we suggest that you read these rules carefully)
- For our business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, fraud monitoring and prevention, developing new products, enhancing, improving or modifying our sites and services, identifying usage trends, determining the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns and operating and expanding our business activities
- As otherwise permitted or required by law, including to comply with legal process; to respond to requests from public and government authorities including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; to enforce our terms and conditions; (e) to protect our operations or those of any of our Affiliates; (f) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property; and to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain
(collectively, the “Purposes”).
Aria only collects, uses, and discloses personal information only to the extent that is reasonable and is necessary to meet the above Purposes, except as authorized by law. We do not disclose the personal information that we collect to any third parties.
How Aria safeguards personal information
We make every reasonable effort to ensure that your personal information is accurate and complete. We rely on our Users to notify us if there are any changes to their personal information. If you are aware of an update to error in our information about you, please let us know and we will correct it on request wherever possible.
We protect Users’ personal information in a manner appropriate for the sensitivity of the information. We make every reasonable effort to prevent any loss, misuse, disclosure or modification of personal information, as well as any unauthorized access to personal information.
We retain personal information only as long as is reasonable to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected or for legal or business purposes. We render personal information non-identifying, or destroy records containing personal information once the information is no longer needed.
We use appropriate security measures when destroying customer personal information, including shredding paper records and permanently deleting electronic records.
