What is Personal Information? As outlined in the Canadian Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA), personal information includes any information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title, business address or business telephone number of an employee of an organization.
Although we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law when we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process.
While ITW takes appropriate safeguards with this website, no website or electronic transmission can be completely secure. Therefore, you should not send confidential or sensitive information by the Internet or by email unless you take appropriate precautions such as encryption.
This website contains links to other Internet sites, resources and businesses operated by others. ITW has no responsibility or liability for, or control over, other sites, their business, goods, services or content. We encourage you to find out the privacy policies of these other sites as your dealings with the owners and operators of these sites are at your own risk.
Subject to the exceptions set out in applicable law, we will provide you with access to any of your personal information that we have collected, used or disclosed upon written request.
