Ventus Respiratory Technologies Inc. (“Ventus”)
Personally Identifiable Information
“Personally Identifiable Information” means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, home or other physical address, an email address, phone number or other contact information, whether at work or at home. You may give us information by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise. You may also provide information to use when applying to work with us. The type of information you may provide in your CV, a cover letter, your name, address, e-mail address and phone number. CV’s should include information relevant to your employment history and education (degree obtained, places worked, positions held, relevant awards and so forth). We ask that you do not disclose sensitive information (e.g. gender, height, weight, medical information, religion, philosophical or political believes) in your application. We ask you to disclose only as much information as is necessary. Ventus may ask to collect Personally Identifiable Information from you when you use the Ventus Site. Ventus also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information and the page you request. It is always your choice whether or not you provide us with your Personally Identifiable Information; however, a decision to withhold Personally Identifiable Information may restrict or prevent us from providing you with a particular product or service.
Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention
Our collection of Personally Identifiable Information is limited to what is reasonable under the circumstances, and your information will be used for the purpose for which it was collected, or when it is required or permitted by law. We may inform you about products and services by mail, e-mail, text message, telephone, or other means. If you do not wish to receive direct marketing, contact us and tell us that you do not wish to be contacted in a particular manner.
Third-Party Service Providers
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to Personally Identifiable Information only to the extent needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. By providing your Personally Identifiable Information to Ventus in order to obtain Ventus products or services, you acknowledge and agree that disclosure of your Personally Identifiable Information to such third parties may be necessary to provide you with such products and services, and you hereby consent to such disclosure.
Sharing and Disclosing Information
Other than as expressly set forth herein, Ventus does not rent, sell or share personal information it collects about you to or with third parties. Information collected from you is only used to complete and support your purchases from and use of the Ventus Site and to comply with any requirements of law. However, Ventus may disclose Personally Identifiable Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Ventus or the Ventus Site; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Ventus ; or (3) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Ventus, its websites or the public. If Ventus should ever file for bankruptcy or merge with another company, we may sell the information you provide to us on the Ventus Site to a third party (in the case of bankruptcy) or share your Personally Identifiable Information with any company with whom we merge – in such situations, Ventus will require, to the best of its ability, the purchasing or merging party to comply with all confidentiality and privacy requirements as set forth herein respecting your Personally Identifiable Information. Ventus may combine your information with other information into an aggregate form, so your information no longer personally identifies you. We may then disclose the aggregate information to third parties, so they can obtain an overall picture of Ventus products, services, customer usage patterns and/or other statistical information.
Security of Information
Ventus will take reasonable precautions to maintain the confidentiality and security of your Personally Identifiable Information so that it is not disclosed to anyone outside our group of companies and our selected third party service providers/business partners without your consent unless required by law or as otherwise set forth herein. Where possible, Ventus protects the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information you input.
Personal information collected on the Ventus site may be stored and processed in Canada or any other country in which Ventus or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using the Ventus Site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

If for any reason, you wish to review your personal information that Ventus has in its possession, you can contact support@ventusRT.com, who will be pleased to provide you with all your personal information that Ventus has on file.

If this is what you wish, please contact support@ventusRT.com, and someone will take care of removing your personal information from all of Ventus's active records. However, there may be situations where we are obligated to retain one archival copy of your information to allow us to comply with laws or respond to legal processes, and there may be instances where we are unable to remove your specific information from our records for technical reasons. We will inform you of all such situations, and will only use your retained personal information to the limited extent necessary to comply with such laws or respond to legal processes.
