Privacy legislation in Canada defines “personal information” broadly as any information about an identifiable individual. In general, personal information does not include business contact information, including your name, title or position, business, telephone or facsimile number.
Mosaic Approach is responsible under applicable privacy legislation for the personal information in our possession or control. This includes personal information we receive directly and indirectly. We have established policies and procedures with the objective of protecting personal information and have appointed a Privacy Officer to oversee privacy matters for our business. Our Privacy Officer can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We may also collect information about your online interactions through our website and our other web-enabled extranet services (collectively, the “Sites”), our email communications, and our online ads. We may collect this information for the purposes of (i) tailoring content that we may send or show you, (ii) to authenticate you, enable access to information, and otherwise administer the Sites, and (iii) for analytical purposes to better understand digital interactions with our business.
