Integrity webpages may also contain content from other sites which may set their own cookies.

Usage of Information
In many cases the information we collect using cookies and other tools is only used in a non-identifiable format without reference to personal information. For example, we may use information we collect to better understand website traffic patterns and to optimize our Website experience. In rare cases, we associate the information we collect using cookies and other technology with personal information that you have provided to us. Our business partners may also use these tracking technologies on the Integrity Website or we may engage others to track your activities on our behalf.
Types of Cookies
We use the following types of cookies:
Strictly necessary – cookies necessary for the website to function and provide you with the services you have requested. These cookies are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in, or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
Performance – cookies that allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. These cookies help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
Functionality – cookies that are used to recognize you and remember your preferences or settings when you return to our site, so that we can provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, then such enhancements and personalization will not be possible.
Advertising – these cookies may be set through our site or by our business or advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. They do not store directly personally identifiable information, but they do store information on your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Social media sharing – these cookies are set by a range of social media services that may add to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit. If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.
More information on certain types of data gathered are provided immediately below and more information on third-party tracking is provided in the next section.
Integrity may automatically collect information through tracking technologies including but not limited to Google Analytics, Facebook, LinkedIn, WordPress and third-party website plugins (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”). As examples, Integrity uses tracking technologies and applications offered by Google Analytics, which helps us analyze our business and our customer’s use of our products and services. If you wish to opt out of Google Analytics, please use the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On. Integrity also uses a LinkedIn Pixel or Insight Tag, which is a piece of code installed on Integrity’s website that will, amongst other things, leave a cookie in the browser of visitors, and track views, conversions, audiences, and other marketing analysis. The Pixel can recognize when a LinkedIn user visits Integrity’s website and subsequently target that user while they are on LinkedIn.
We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they are used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.
Choices About How We Use Information
We do not control third parties’ collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way. You can opt out of several third party ad servers’ and networks’ cookies simultaneously by using opt-out tools created by such providers as the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada . You can also access these websites to learn more about online behavioural advertising and how to stop websites from placing cookies on your device. Opting out of a network does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the network from which you opted out will no longer deliver ads tailored to your web preferences and usage patterns.
For Users of the site located outside of Canada, the collection of data and acceptance of cookies may be an essential and prohibitive condition of the Users’ ability to access or use the Website. The Website is not intended for use in any jurisdiction where its use is not permitted.
