Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy sets out the privacy policies and practices of Karlene Karst with respect to our collection, use, and disclosure of personal information, including in respect of our website: (the “Site”).  Karlene Karst reserves the right to change, modify or update the terms of this Privacy Policy at any time without notice. Karlene Karst will post any revisions to its Privacy Policy on the Site. You are responsible for regularly checking the Privacy Policy for revision. Any use by you of the Site after such effective date signifies your consent and agreement to the modified Privacy Policy.

In this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means any information about an identifiable individual, as further defined under applicable Canadian laws.


Collection and use of personal information

You do not need to provide any Personal Information to use the Karlene Karst website. In general, you can visit our website without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information.

When you do provide us with personally identifiable information, we may use that information in the following ways, unless stated otherwise: we may store and process that information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services and we may use that information to contact you.

Karlene Karst may otherwise use customer information for additional purposes that are identified at or before the time that the information is used for such additional purposes.


Disclosure of personal information

Karlene Karst may use or transfer Personal Information to third-party service providers, agents, market partners, suppliers, and team members who provide services to or on behalf of Karlene Karst, including but not limited to services such as hosting, data management and storage services, market analyses, and other related services. Either Karlene Karst or such third party service provider may use servers for such purposes located in Canada or a foreign country. The Personal Information may be processed and stored in Canada or such foreign country, and the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of that country may be able to obtain disclosure of personal information through the laws of the foreign country.

Karlene Karst, our affiliates and our Canadian, U.S. and other service providers may provide Personal Information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to an investigative body in the case of a breach of an agreement or contravention of law, or as otherwise required by applicable Canadian, U.S. or other law. We may also disclose personal information where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

Karlene Karst may transfer any information we have collected as an asset in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of Karlene Karst or as part of a corporate reorganization or stock sale or other change in corporate control.


How personal information is protected

Karlene Karst uses commercially reasonable technical, physical, operational and procedural safeguards to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, alteration, and unauthorized access or disclosure. Due to the nature of Karlene Karst’s business, including its dependence on the public internet, Karlene Karst cannot ultimately ensure that private communications and Personal Information will not be intercepted by third parties or otherwise obtained in ways not described in this Privacy Policy. Although Karlene Karst attempts to protect the privacy of all Personal Information, we cannot absolutely guarantee that such information will remain private. Any suspected breaches to the security of the Site should be immediately reported to us.

Karlene Karst retains personal information only as long as necessary or relevant (1) for the identified purposes, (2) as required by law, (3) as required by agreements with third parties related to the business, and (4) where Personal Information is the subject of a request from an individual. We shall use commercial reasonable efforts and protocol to dispose of or destroy Personal Information to prevent unauthorized parties from gaining access to the information.


Access and corrections

You may contact our Privacy Officer to access, modify or correct inaccuracies in any of your Personal Information that is under Karlene Karst’s custody or control. You may also direct a written complaint regarding compliance with this Privacy Policy to our Privacy Officer and, within a reasonable time upon receiving the written complaint, our Privacy Officer will conduct an investigation into the matter. Within a reasonable time of concluding the investigation, our Privacy Officer will respond to the complaint and, if appropriate, Karlene Karst will take appropriate measure necessary to rectify the source of the complaint.

If you have inquiries regarding your Personal Information held by us or if you have any questions or concerns regarding our Privacy Policy, you may contact our Privacy Officer by emailing us at: KARLENE@KARLENEKARST.COM
