DotFriday Privacy Statement
Our Commitment To Your Privacy
DotFriday is committed to protecting your privacy and personal information. It is our policy to never give, rent, or sell any information that individually identifies a client to any person or organization without the client’s consent. We have adopted privacy principles and policies based on Canada’s federal privacy legislation, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). Curveball Software Inc. is not a “covered entity” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and the regulations promulgated thereunder (“HIPAA”). As a result, HIPAA does not apply to the transmission of health information by Curveball Software Inc. to any third party.
DotFriday operates in Canada and the United States and therefore your personal information may be disclosed in accordance with Canadian or U.S. law.

Consent may be obtained in a variety of ways. Often, we will be asking for your express, written or verbal consent before or at the time we collect, use or disclose your personal information. However, in most cases, by requesting products, services or consultation from us, you are implying your consent for us to collect, use, or disclose your personal information for these purposes.
In order for your consent to be valid, you need to understand what information we are collecting, why we need it, and how we will be using it. That’s why it’s important for you to ask questions, and be informed.
Giving your consent and providing us with your personal information is always your choice. When you login to DotFriday you are providing your consent to for us to collect, use and disclose your personal information for the purposes described above. You are also consenting to allow us to retain this information for as long as reasonably required for these purposes, unless you withdraw your consent in writing. By withdrawing or not providing us consent, be aware that we may not be able to provide you with the service you have requested.
There are certain circumstances where we do not need to obtain consent, and may be required to disclose your information to third parties without notifying you. These are very limited and are beyond our control, such as life threatening situations or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements.
