Canvas is dedicated to protecting the privacy and security of your Personal Data and to monitoring governance regulations. We are committed to performing our responsibilities regarding the collection, processing, utilization and retention of in-scope data in accordance with applicable data privacy laws such as GDPR and CCPA. This data is only used for legitimate and lawful purposes, and residents of California may find more information in the Notice to California Residents.
You may choose to share different types of Personal Data with us when you use our Platform.
You may also choose to submit information to us via other methods, including: (i) in response to marketing or other communications, (ii) through social media or online forums, (iii) through participation in an offer, program or promotion, (iv) in connection with an actual or potential business relationship with us, or (v) by giving us your business card or contact details at trade shows or other events.
We also collect information about your online activities on websites and connected devices over time and across third-party websites, devices, apps and other online features and services. We use Google Analytics on our websites to help us analyze your use of our websites and diagnose technical issues.
You may choose to enhance your Canvas Member profile with information that could be categorized as “sensitive”, depending on where you live. For example, we ask you to self identify your race and ethnicity when you create your Canvas account. You do not have to provide this information in order to have a Member profile on Canvas, but providing this information can help you to get more from our services, including helping Employers utilizing our services to find you. It’s your choice whether to provide this sensitive information, and if you do, we request that you please be mindful that it will become a part of your Canvas profile.
We use your Personal Data compliantly. We use Personal Data to facilitate the business relationships we have with Members and to pursue our legitimate business interests. For example:
We may send you email marketing communications about Canvas products and services, invite you to participate in our events or surveys, or otherwise communicate with you for marketing purposes, provided that we do so in accordance with the consent requirements that are imposed by applicable law. For example, when we collect your business contact details through our participation at trade shows or other events, we may use the information to follow-up with you regarding an event, send you information that you have requested on our products and services and, with your permission, include you on our marketing information campaigns.
We do not share, rent or sell Member Personal Data for interest-based advertising.
