When you voluntarily provide information for a specific purpose, we will assume your implied consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information for that particular purpose. If we wish to use your personal information for a different use or disclosure, we will generally obtain your additional consent.
You may change or withdraw your consent at any time on reasonable notice, subject to pre-existing legal and contractual obligations, by sending an e-mail to the Privacy Officer. However, if you withdraw certain consents, it may limit the manner in which you can make use of Grimshaw's services. For clarity, your ability to change or withdraw consent is not absolute. Grimshaw reserves the right to continue handling your personal information in those circumstances required or permitted by law despite a change or withdrawal of consent.
As well, privacy legislation permits or requires the collection, use and disclosure of personal information
without the knowledge or consent of the individual in some specific and limited circumstances. We
reserve the right to collect, use and disclose your personal information in these limited circumstances
without your knowledge or consent. Grimshaw may monitor your use of its services to ensure the proper use and operation of those services. As well, we may collect, use and disclose your personal information without your knowledge or consent when that personal information is relevant to an actual or potential legal proceeding or when we are required or permitted to do so by court order, applicable law or regulatory requirements.
In order to use some of the features of Grimshaw’s website, Grimshaw may require that you provide some personal information. Our web server collects the domain names, IP addresses and routing information of visitors. This information is aggregated for the purposes of measuring the number of visits, average time spent on the website, pages viewed, and other similar purposes. Grimshaw uses this information to measure the use of our website and to improve the content of our website. A technology called cookies may be used on certain pages of our website. A cookie is a tiny element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive so the website can recognize you when you return. Cookies allow us to provide you with tailored information and to provide services to you via the Internet. If your browser permits, you may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies altogether.

When we collect, use or disclose personal information, we will make a reasonable effort to ensure that it is accurate, up to date and complete. To do so, we may need to request additional information from you or have you verify your information. If your personal information does change, we would appreciate it if you could inform us of those changes in order that your personal information in our possession remains accurate.
For legal and business purposes we may retain your personal information for as long as it is reasonably needed. Upon expiry of the appropriate retention period, bearing in mind our reasonable legal and business requirements, your personal information will either be destroyed in a secure manner or made anonymous. You should be aware that there are legally required minimum retention periods, which
Grimshaw must and does observe.
Grimshaw recognizes its obligation to protect personal information in its possession and will make reasonable arrangements to secure that personal information against unauthorized access. These measures will be reasonable in the circumstance and may include providing access to only those individuals with a need to know the information, locked doors and/or filing cabinets and other physical and electronic security measures as well as contractual measures, such as non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements.

All requests may be subject to reasonable fees and disbursements. Where appropriate to do so, we may require advance payment of a deposit or the entire costs of responding to a request for access to personal information. As well, all requests must be in writing. We will also require sufficient information and detail from you in order to verify your identity and to properly locate the information.
