Our Privacy Principles

We adhere to the following privacy principles:

  1. Notice
    Canopy is primarily involved in providing information-governance consulting and litigation-support services and collects data from:

    • Clients: In connection with providing such services, Canopy receives personal information of its clients. Our clients also provide us with the personal information of their customers/clients. We adopt confidentiality measures and protect all such personal information and maintain its privacy. All information and data received by Canopy is only only used in its capacity and role as a litigation-support service provider, and the data is analyzed and processed as in accordance with our clients’ instructions.

    • Candidates: Canopy retains and maintains the contact information, resumes, and other information requested of all job candidates who apply for positions or contract work at Canopy.

    • Website Visitors: Unless otherwise stated in another, more specific policy on the webpages you are viewing, we collect general information and data from visitors visiting our website. The information collected is mainly in respect to your domain name, the webpages your internet browser visits when browsing our site, the name of the webpage from which you entered our site and data, such as the number of hits per week, per webpage. The information collected is purely used for the purposes to monitor and understand how our website is being used. By collecting this information Canopy can improve the quality of its website. We do not provide the information collected to outside parties, except for those described in the “Third Parties” section.

    • Third Parties: Canopy may use third-party storage or service-provider companies to perform some functions, including the processing of data. We ensure that such companies are under a duty of confidentiality to Canopy.

  1. Choice
    The information collected by Canopy is only utilized for the purpose described in our “Notice” section. The visitor has the choice to opt out of or limiting any use of information that is collected by Canopy. The visitor can notify any such option at policies@canopyco.io to withdraw permission to use of their personal information. When you choose to opt out, the data is not necessarily deleted or erased, but we will not utilize this data or forward it for any purpose.

  2. Onward Transfer (Transfers to Third Parties)
    Canopy may — at the direction of its clients — transfer, process, and store information in countries, including the United States in which Canopy maintains offices, or with its subsidiaries/Associate Enterprise. Data submitted to Canopy may be transferred to, processed, or stored in countries only in connection with rendering of client services.

  4. Data Security
    Canopy has adopted and takes all reasonable and appropriate organizational procedures to protect personal and identifiable information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. All the employees of Canopy are trained and informed to maintain the confidentiality and security of such data. All personal information is kept in a safe and secure environment. Employees are given access to the information only on a need-to-know basis. Proper password protection is used for all computers in the Canopy offices.
