Our Secret is the system but we didn’t have it when we first started.

Like most start-ups,

International Internet Advertising Services began in a basement, in a small town, named Abbotsford, back in 1995.

That was actually the same year the internet was fully commercialized.

At the time, we had no money and most people didn’t even know what the internet was and the ones that did thought it was a fad.

No one thought the internet would actually help businesses grow. (Did you?)

It was pretty common to think that online marketing was blasphemy because people thought the internet should be a free open market and not a place to peddle commercial products and services.

But Mike had a vision of what the future would become.

It wasn’t easy at first.

But he knew internet advertising was going to be BIG! (Hence the name International Internet Advertising Services.)

Being an early leader and innovator, Mike held on to his belief and pushed through the hardships. He took what he knew and paved the way for other business owners to take advantage and leverage the opportunities the internet had to offer.

Over the course of time, he has attracted other bright leaders and innovators and together, we are making an impact!

But let’s be honest with you,

We wouldn’t be here if we couldn’t help you.

We’ve helped businesses from the ground up.

We’ve saved businesses from getting burnt up.

There have even been times when people have taken out loans for our services to advance their business. We are not suggesting that you take that risk, but we want to let you know that we fully understand our responsibility.

But after years of helping businesses, we stumbled upon the most important thing.

We discovered a system that would transform businesses. There was a direct correlation; the closer we followed this system, the more we grew businesses. FAST!

What have we done?

We grew a business from $1,500,000 to $36,000,000 in sales within 3 years!

All because we had a system.

And now that we know how effective it is, we feel compelled to share it with the world.

We’ve been blessed to work with such great business people and we want to thank each one of them

We understand the level of trust and faith you put in us to launch your business forward and we are grateful for the opportunity.

Do You Believe in Growing Your Business?

There are two types of people in this world: the cynics and the believers.

The believers embrace change and adapt.
We take action while everyone else is frozen in fear.

The cynics are fear based and doubt everything.
They refuse to take any action.
Our purpose is not to convert the cynics, but to support your dreams as a believer, because you’re one of us.

What is our purpose?

To make our world a better place by helping great businesses grow.

Terms of Use Agreement

International Internet Advertising Services Inc.
Last updated: May 15, 2010 / Date of original issue: January 1, 2006.

The services that International Internet Advertising Services Inc. (“Internet Advertising”) provides to you are subject to this Terms of Use (“TOU”). You will hereinafter be referred to as “the Customer”, the scope of which definition will include, without limitation, your agents, employers, and employees. This TOU, in addition to any Order Form (as defined below) and any other specific agreement for Internet Advertising Services (as defined below) between Customer and Internet Advertising, represents the complete understanding and agreement between Internet Advertising and the Customer. Except when expressly agreed to the contrary in writing signed by an authorized representative of Internet Advertising, this TOU supersedes any other agreement, whether written, oral, by conduct, or otherwise.

Internet Advertising reserves the right to update the TOU (including, without limitation, changing or discontinuing any of “Internet Advertising’ Services” as defined below) at any time without notice to the Customer. Any such change or discontinuance will legally bind the Customer from the time when Internet Advertising publishes an updated version of the TOU to the website. It is the Customer’s sole responsibility, and it is not Internet Advertising’ responsibility whatsoever, to ensure that the Customer is up-to-date on the most current version of the TOU.

THE SUBMISSION OF THE CUSTOMER’S “ORDER FORM” OR “ORDER” (WHICH DEFINITION INCLUDES, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY OF Internet Advertising’ ONLINE ORDER FORMS, HARD COPY WRITTEN ORDER FORMS, AGREEMENTS FOR Internet Advertising SERVICES, OR TELEPHONE ORDERS), OR THE CUSTOMER’S USE OF ANY of Internet Advertising’ SERVICES, WILL IMMEDIATELY AND AUTOMATICALLY CONSTITUTE THE CUSTOMER’S ACCEPTANCE OF THE TOU AND WILL BIND THE CUSTOMER TO THE TOU ACCORDINGLY. The Customer represents and warrants that the Customer has read this TOU thoroughly, has had sufficient opportunity to seek legal counsel or has waived such opportunity, and therefore clearly understands and agrees to all the terms and conditions contained herein.

The Company will provide Company Services to Customer in exchange for fees and full compliance with the following terms and conditions:

  1. Provision of Internet Advertising’ Services
    1. Internet Advertising Services Defined. “Internet Advertising Services” (or “Services”) include the following:
      1. any act of preparing, setting up, connecting, maintaining, terminating, or reconnecting “the Customer’s Account” (which definition includes all billing data related to Internet Advertising Services and the space on the particular Web server that Internet Advertising provides to the Customer for the purpose of providing Internet Advertising Services to the Customer);
      2. any act, or provision of any service, by Internet Advertising to the Customer related to web hosting, Email services, and domain name registrations (including server usage and technical support), regardless of duration and whether paid for or not;
      3. any access or use related to the website, including the website itself;
      4. any design or programming services provided by Internet Advertising to the Customer, including but not limited to interface design, graphic design, content creation, multimedia development, html programming, and database design;
      5. any other service mentioned in the TOU;
      6. any other service provided by Internet Advertising to the Customer, whether used or not;
      7. any other service related to Internet Advertising that is used by the Customer, whether offered or provided by Internet Advertising to the Customer.
    2. Management & Backup of Data. Except where Internet Advertising has expressly agreed in writing to the contrary, the Customer is solely and entirely responsible, and Internet Advertising is in no way responsible, for the management and backup of all of the Customer’s data, and all updates, upgrades, and patches to any software that the Customer uses in connection with Services offered by Internet Advertising.
    3. Maintenance Periods. The Customer acknowledges and agrees to the weekly scheduled periods of maintenance, which Internet Advertising may perform at least every week. The Customer understands and agrees that during a scheduled maintenance period, any or all Services provided by Internet Advertising may be unavailable. The Customer further understands and agrees that Internet Advertising has the right to conduct emergency maintenance at any time, during which any or all of Internet Advertising’ Services may be unavailable.
    4. License to Occupy Only. The Customer acknowledges that the Customer has no real property interest in any equipment space provided to the Customer by Internet Advertising, and the Customer agrees that any such provision of equipment space grants the Customer only a license to occupy the equipment space. Payment by the Customer for the equipment space does not create or vest in the Customer (or in any other party) any leasehold estate, easement, ownership interest, lien, or other proprietary right or interest of any nature in any part of Internet Advertising’ premises or facilities including the equipment space.
    5. Domain Name Registrations. Internet Advertising Services related to the registration of a domain name is limited to the submission of the registration request to the appropriate registrar. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE, AND Internet Advertising SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ANY SUCH GUARANTEE, THAT A PARTICULAR APPLICATION FOR A DOMAIN NAME WILL BE ACCEPTED, APPROVED, OR REGISTERED. The Customer understands and agrees that each individual domain name constitutes a single submission. It is the Customer’s sole responsibility to provide accurate information and to notify the appropriate registrar directly, and NOT Internet Advertising, about any change to the original information. For country code top-level domain names, the Customer acknowledges that the fees are non-refundable, even if the domain name is rejected (because the fee is for the service of submitting the application). The Customer understands and acknowledges that each individual registry or registrar may have additional domain registration fees that the Customer will have to pay.
    6. Internet Advertising’ Right of Refusal & Termination. Internet Advertising may, at its sole discretion, refuse Services to any Customer (whether potential, new, or existing) and/or terminate the supply of Internet Advertising Services to the Customer immediately, with or without any prior notice, if Internet Advertising deems the Customer to be in breach of the TOU, notwithstanding that the Customer may be in breach of any other agreement by complying with the TOU.
  2. Use of Company Services
    1. The Customer’s Account. Only the Customer may use the Customer’s Account, which is defined as including all billing data related to the Customer’s Services and the space on the particular Web server that Internet Advertising provides to the Customer for the purpose of providing Internet Advertising Services to the Customer. The Customer may not transfer, sell, lease, rent, or assign, in any way, any part or whole of the Customer’s Account and/or Internet Advertising Services to any party, unless the Customer obtains Internet Advertising’ prior written consent.
    2. Ownership of the Customer’s Account & the Customer’s Web Site. The Customer acknowledges, warrants, and agrees that the legal owner of the Customer’s Account will be the individual, company, or entity whose name is listed in Internet Advertising’ database as the owner of the Customer’s Account (“Account Owner”). Only the Account Owner may MAKE MODIFICATIONS, INCLUDING CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP, TO THE Customer’s Account, SUBJECT TO Internet Advertising’ WRITTEN CONSENT. The Customer further acknowledges and agrees that the legal owner of the web site(s) hosted under the Customer’s Account will be the Account Owner, EXCEPT WHERE THE CUSTOMER’S CUSTOMERS OWN THE WEB SITES. Customer WILL fully cooperate with and abide by any and all of Internet Advertising’ security measures and procedures (including the Customer’s provision to Internet Advertising of valid identification, credit card number, and/or notarized affidavit) in the event of any conflict with regards to the ownership of the Customer’s Account and/or web site(s).
    3. Customer’s Lawful and Ethical Use. The Customer agrees to use Internet Advertising’ Services as permitted by applicable laws (including, without limitation, local, provincial, state, and federal laws) and in a manner that is not unethical, libelous, or contrary to public or Internet Advertising policy.
    4. Customer’s Warranty, Liability, & Indemnification. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that Internet Advertising will be the sole determinant of whether or not the Customer is in breach of the TOU. The Customer is solely responsible for any legal liability arising out of, or relating to, the Customer’s use of Internet Advertising’ Services. The Customer represents, warrants, and covenants to Internet Advertising that the Customer holds the necessary rights to use, or permit to use, any item used through any of Internet Advertising’ Services, and that the use, reproduction, distribution, transmission, or display of any data to the public, and any material to which the public can link or access, or any aspect of Internet Advertising’ Services made available to the public through the Customer, does NOT and will NOT:
      1. violate or potentially violate any right of any third party, including copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade secrets, or other proprietary rights;
      2. constitute or potentially constitute violations, including false advertisement, unfair competition, defamation, invasion of privacy, invasion of rights, and discrimination;
      3. cause or potentially cause any dispute or legal action/proceeding;
      4. contain or potentially contain any material that is unlawful, harmful, fraudulent, libelous, slanderous, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, hateful, or otherwise offensive;
      5. contain or potentially contain any material that is racially, ethnically, disputatiously, argumentatively, or ethically objectionable;
      6. contain or potentially contain any material only suitable for persons over the age of majority in the province of British Columbia, Canada, including adult content and explicit adult material; or
      7. contain any other material that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable law (including export control laws).

      The Customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Internet Advertising, any third party entity related to Internet Advertising (including third party vendors), and Internet Advertising’ executives, directors, officers, attorneys, managers, employees, consultants, contractors, agents, parent companies, subsidiaries, and co-subsidiaries from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, judgments, damages, claims, or causes of action, including any and all legal fees and expenses arising out of or relating to the Customer’s breach of any provision of the TOU or any other third party claim with respect thereto.

    5. The Customer’s Prevention of Corruption. The Customer must actively endeavor to prevent any corruption of Internet Advertising’ systems, including viruses. Internet Advertising reserves the right to run anti-virus programs, at its sole discretion, to minimize potential and actual damages.
    6. Mandatory Upgrades. If Internet Advertising, in its sole discretion, deems the Customer or the Customer’s Account to be adversely affecting Internet Advertising’ server performance or network integrity, or the Customer’s Account is consuming use of bandwidth or disk space above the allowance specified in the Customer’s particular service package, then Internet Advertising may request of the Customer, and the Customer must comply with such request, to upgrade the Customer’s Account to a service package that would, in Internet Advertising’ sole discretion, adequately accommodate the use, consumption, and other requirements of the Customer’s Account and accommodate Internet Advertising’ provision of Internet Advertising Services to the Customer’s Account. Any and all downgrades of service packages are subject to Internet Advertising’ sole approval and applicable fees.
  3. The Customer’s Abuse and Breach
    1. Spamming. The Customer understands and acknowledges that Internet Advertising has a zero-tolerance policy against the sending of unsolicited bulk Emails and/or commercial messages over the Internet (“Spam” or “Spamming”), which definition also includes maintaining an open SMTP policy, engaging in Spamming using the services of another Internet Service Provider (“ISP”) or Internet Presence Provider (“IPP”) and referencing in the Spam a web site hosted on Internet Advertising’ server, and selling or distributing software on a web site that facilitates Spamming and resides on a server of Internet Advertising. Spamming is strictly prohibited under the TOU and is just cause for Internet Advertising to terminate this TOU and any and all provision of Internet Advertising Services to the Customer.
    2. Disciplinary Measures. In the event of the Customer’s Abuse, Internet Advertising may implement, at its sole discretion, any disciplinary measure, including warning, suspension, or termination of the Customer’s Account and all provision of Internet Advertising Services to the Customer. If the Customer has been suspended and Internet Advertising chooses to repeal the suspension, Internet Advertising may, at its sole discretion, charge the Customer a reconnection charge before Internet Advertising provides any further Services to the Customer. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that if the Customer’s Account has been suspended or placed on hold, Internet Advertising may redirect visitors of the particular Customer’s web site to an Internet Advertising technical support web page. The Customer further agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Internet Advertising, any third party entity related to Internet Advertising (including third party vendors), and Internet Advertising’ executives, directors, officers, attorneys, managers, employees, consultants, contractors, agents, parent companies, subsidiaries, and co-subsidiaries from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, judgments, damages, claims, or causes of action, including any and all legal fees and expenses arising out of or relating to Internet Advertising placing the Customer’s Account on hold.
    3. Monitoring. Internet Advertising reserves the right, and the Customer consents, to Internet Advertising monitoring the usage and utilization of Internet Advertising Services and the content on the Customer’s web site(s) to determine whether or not the Customer is using Internet Advertising Services in compliance with the TOU. However, the Customer understands and acknowledges that Internet Advertising does not monitor the Customer’s communications, activities, or web site content as a general practice, and Internet Advertising expressly disclaims that it maintains any such general practice.
    4. Misclassification. The Customer acknowledges that the Customer’s activity may be misclassified as Customer’s Abuse. A Customer who believes that the Customer’s activity has been misclassified may appeal to Internet Advertising’ Technical Support Manager. Determination of whether or not the Customer’s activity is indeed Customer’s Abuse is at the sole discretion of Internet Advertising. The Customer further agrees to hold harmless Internet Advertising, any third party entity related to Internet Advertising (including third party vendors), and Internet Advertising’ executives, directors, officers, attorneys, managers, employees, consultants, contractors, agents, parent companies, subsidiaries, and co-subsidiaries from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, judgments, damages, claims, or causes of action, including any and all legal fees and expenses arising out of or relating to Internet Advertising misclassifying the Customer’s activities as Customer’s Abuse.
  4. TERMINATION
    1. Cause for Termination. THE CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS, ACKNOWLEDGES, AND AGREES THAT IF Internet Advertising DEEMS THE CUSTOMER TO BE INVOLVED, IN ANY WAY, IN ANY BREACH OF THE TOU Internet Advertising RESERVES THE RIGHT TO IMMEDIATELY TERMINATE, WITHOUT ANY PRIOR NOTICE TO THE CUSTOMER, THE TOU AND Internet Advertising Services TO THE CUSTOMER. Internet Advertising WILL NOT IN ANY WAY BE LIABLE TO THE CUSTOMER, AND THE CUSTOMER WILL MAKE NO CLAIM AGAINST Internet Advertising, FOR TERMINATING THE TOU OR Internet Advertising Services TO THE CUSTOMER AS PROVIDED HEREIN.
    2. Bankruptcy & Insolvency. In the event the Customer becomes insolvent or any bankruptcy petition is filed by the Customer or any third party against the Customer, this TOU will automatically terminate and Internet Advertising may immediately terminate Internet Advertising Services to the Customer without prior notice and/or any penalty whatsoever. The Customer further consents to the grant of relief from any automatic stay of proceedings against Internet Advertising in such event.
  5. Indemnification The Customer agrees to protect, defend, hold harmless, and indemnify Internet Advertising, any third party entity related to Internet Advertising (including third party vendors), and Internet Advertising’ executives, directors, officers, attorneys, managers, employees, consultants, contractors, agents, parent companies, subsidiaries, and co-subsidiaries from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, judgments, damages, claims, or causes of actions, including any and all legal fees and expenses, arising out of or resulting in any way from the Customer’s use of Internet Advertising Services.
  6. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT, AND UNDER NO THEORY OF LAW OR EQUITY, WILL Internet Advertising (including Internet Advertising’ EXECUTIVES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, ATTORNEYS, MANAGERS, employees, CONSULTANTS, CONTRACTORS, AGENTS, parent companies, subsidiaries, co-subsidiaries, affiliates, third-party providers, merchants, licensors, or the like) or anyone else involved in creating, producing, or distributing Internet Advertising Services, be liable FOR THE LOSS OF A DOMAIN NAME, OR ANY BUSINESS OR PERSONAL LOSS, REVENUE DECREASE, EXPENSE INCREASE, COST OF SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS AND/OR Internet Advertising Services, OR ANY OTHER LOSS OR DAMAGE WHATSOEVER, OR FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR INDIRECT DAMAGES OF ANY KIND – EVEN IF Internet Advertising HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES – (I) ARISING OUT OF ANY USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE ANY Internet Advertising Services, OR (II) RELATED TO Internet Advertising’ MIGRATION OR MOVEMENT OF ANY EQUIPMENT BELONGING TO THE CUSTOMER AND/OR Internet Advertising. Internet Advertising’ TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY, IF ANY, TO THE CUSTOMER, OR ANY THIRD PARTY, FOR ANY AND ALL DAMAGES, RELATED TO THE TOU OR Internet Advertising Services, INCLUDING THOSE FROM ANY NEGLIGENCE, ANY ACT OR OMISSION BY Internet Advertising OR Internet Advertising’ REPRESENTATIVES, OR UNDER ANY OTHER THEORY OF LAW OR EQUITY, WILL BE LIMITED TO, AND WILL NOT EXCEED, THE SETUP FEE OR THE MONTHLY FEES PAID BY THE CUSTOMER FOR Internet Advertising Services, WHICHEVER IS GREATER.
  7. DISCLAIMER
      No Warranties. EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTIES EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS TOU, no advice, whether written, oral, or otherwise, that is given by Internet Advertising, its employees, agents, licensors, or the like, will create a warranty and any reliance on such information or advice by the Customer will be at sole risk of the Customer, and Internet Advertising will in no way be liable to anyone for such reliance.
    1. Backup of Data & Insurance. THE CUSTOMER acknowledges and agrees that it is THE CUSTOMER’S sole responsibility, and that Internet Advertising is in no way responsible, for the back up of THE CUSTOMER’S data and for the maintenance of adequate insurance in relation to THE CUSTOMER’S equipment.
    2. Systems Information. Internet Advertising makes NO warranty of any kind, either express or implied, regarding the quality, accuracy, or validity of the data and/or information available. Use of information obtained from or through Internet Advertising is at the sole risk of the Customer.
    3. Third Party Licenses. The Customer understands and acknowledges that Internet Advertising makes a reasonable effort to provide the Customer with technologies, developments, and innovations (collectively “Technologies”), part of which are being licensed or co-branded from or by third party entities. However, Internet Advertising makes NO warranty of any kind, either express or implied, regarding the quality, accuracy, reliability, validity, or continued existence of any or all aspects of such Technologies. Moreover, Internet Advertising specifically disclaims all warranties of merchantability and fitness FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE for such Technologies. Furthermore, the Customer will NOT hold Internet Advertising, any third party entity related to Internet Advertising (including third party vendors), or Internet Advertising’ executives, directors, officers, attorneys, managers, employees, consultants, contractors, agents, parent companies, subsidiaries and co-subsidiaries liable in any way for the revocation of any license, which has been licensed to Internet Advertising from or by third parties, that results in any actual or potential harm, damage, cost, expense, or otherwise to the Customer, the Customer’s business, the Customer’s affiliates, the Customer’s customers, or anyone or anything related to the Customer. The use of the Technologies obtained from or through Internet Advertising, or any other referred third party, whether directly or indirectly, is at the sole risk of the Customer.
  8. Payment
    1. Billing Cycle. The billing or invoicing of the Customer’s Account may vary depending on various factors, including the date on which the Customer becomes a customer of Internet Advertising and particular Services that Internet Advertising is providing the Customer. Internet Advertising’ provision of Internet Advertising Services to the Customer for one (1) month will constitute one “Billing Cycle” which will begin on the first day, and end on the last day, of each calendar month. The Billing Cycle will continue to renew each month until Internet Advertising receives a “Cancellation Request” from the Customer in accordance with this TOU. The first Billing Cycle for the Customer’s Account will commence on the day that Internet Advertising receives the Customer’s Order Form. If Internet Advertising receives an Order on or after the first day of a calendar month, then Internet Advertising may pro-rate accordingly the charges and fees for that month. Internet Advertising reserves the right to modify the Billing Cycle, at any time and without prior notice, so that the Customer may be billed or invoiced for Internet Advertising Services more or less frequently. Any period during which the Customer’s account is suspended or on hold will be included in the Billing Cycle.
    2. Payment Due. The Customer must ensure that Internet Advertising receives full payment for any and all Services utilized before the beginning of the Billing Cycle, including the initial Billing Cycle. The Customer is solely responsible for ensuring that Internet Advertising receives full payment of an invoice before the due date specified thereon. Internet Advertising may, at its sole discretion, decide not to provide the Customer with Services until Internet Advertising receives full payment in advance.
    3. Methods of Payment. Methods of payment accepted by Internet Advertising are cheque, certified cheque, money order, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express). If the Customer is paying by check, certified cheque or money order, the payment must be sent to Internet Advertising’ address as it appears on the web site. Internet Advertising will charge the Customer a twenty Canadian-dollar ($20.00 CAD) service charge for each check that is not honored or for each credit card payment that is charged back.
    4. Overages. Internet Advertising may charge the Customer for any “Overages”, which includes excessive bandwidth and disk space use (which is any use of bandwidth or disk space above the allowance specified in the Customer’s particular service package). The Customer is solely responsible for preventing any and all Overages on a daily basis. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Internet Advertising has no obligation to warn the Customer about any pending or actual Overage.
    5. Delinquent Customer’s Account. Customer’s Account will be deemed “Delinquent” if Internet Advertising does not receive payment for Internet Advertising Services within thirty (30) days after the commencement of a Billing Cycle.
    6. Penalties for Delinquent Customer’s Account. The Customer’s Account that is Delinquent may be put on hold and the Customer may be prevented from using the Customer’s Account. Delinquent Customer’s Account may have visitors redirected from the Customer’s web site to an Internet Advertising technical support web page. A Delinquent Customer’s Account that is unpaid for an entire Billing Cycle may, at Internet Advertising’ sole discretion, have any or all files archived, purged, or otherwise deleted. The Customer’s Account will continue to accrue charges (including interest charges) while the Customer’s Account is on hold.
  9. CANCELLATION REQUESTS
    1. Automatic Renewal. The TOU will bind the Customer, and the Customer will be deemed to have accepted the TOU, upon Internet Advertising’ receipt of the Customer’s Order Form. The TOU, and the particular service agreement(s) executed between the Customer and Internet Advertising (if any), will automatically renew upon expiration of the relevant Billing Cycle until the Customer makes a proper Cancellation Request.
    2. Cancellation Request Defined. “Cancellation Request” means the Customer’s request, in accordance with this TOU, to Internet Advertising to cease the provision of Internet Advertising Services for the particular Customer’s Account. For a valid Cancellation Request that Internet Advertising will deem effective, the Customer must make any and all Cancellation Requests according to the following specifications:
      1. Monthly Basis. If the Customer pays on a monthly basis, a Cancellation Request must be given by writing via facsimile, first class postal service (postage prepaid), or by prepaid overnight commercial courier delivered to Internet Advertising’ address directly (available on the web site). The Customer may also make a Cancellation Request by telephone call to Internet Advertising’ Customer Service Department during the hours of 8:30AM PST to 5:30PM PST, Monday to Friday (excluding holidays). The Cancellation Request must be received by Internet Advertising before 5:30PM PST on the last business day of the particular month in order for the Cancellation Request to be processed by the end of the same month; otherwise, Internet Advertising will automatically renew the Customer’s Account for the next month or Billing Cycle. CHARGES ARE NOT PRO-RATED WHEN THE CUSTOMER TERMINATES THE CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT WITH Internet Advertising.
      2. Non-Monthly Basis. If the Customer pays on a non-monthly basis (three (3), six (6), twelve (12), or other number of multiple months), a Cancellation Request for the Customer’s Account must be given by writing via facsimile, first class postal service (postage prepaid), or by prepaid overnight commercial courier delivered to Internet Advertising’ address directly (available on the web site). The Customer may also make a Cancellation Request by telephone call to Internet Advertising’ Customer Service Department during the hours of 8:30AM PST to 5:30PM PST, Monday to Friday (excluding holidays). Internet Advertising must receive the Cancellation Request before 5:30PM PST, fifteen (15) days before the anniversary date of when Internet Advertising received the Customer’s Order for any Services provided by Internet Advertising to be processed before such anniversary date; otherwise, Internet Advertising will be entitled and authorized to, at its own discretion, automatically renew the Customer’s Account, and the Customer will be bound and responsible, for the next applicable period. CHARGES ARE NOT PRO-RATED WHEN THE CUSTOMER TERMINATES THE CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT WITH Internet Advertising.
    3. Full Payment Requirement. The Customer’s Account must be PAID IN FULL before any Cancellation Request will be considered effective.
  10. IP Addresses Internet Advertising maintains control and ownership of any and all IP numbers and addresses that may be assigned to the Customer, and Internet Advertising reserves the right to change or remove, at its sole discretion, any and all IP numbers and addresses.
  11. Governing Law and Severability Any agreement, including the TOU, or any other agreement for Internet Advertising Services, between Internet Advertising and the Customer, will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of British Columbia, Canada without reference to its conflicts of laws principles. The Customer agrees that any litigation or arbitration between the Customer and Internet Advertising will take place in such jurisdiction, and the Customer consents to personal jurisdiction and venue in that jurisdiction. If any provision or portion of the agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable for any reason, the remainder of that agreement will continue in full force and effect.
  12. WAIVER, MODIFICATION AND AMENDMENT Any waiver, modification, or amendment of any provision of the TOU, or other agreement for Internet Advertising Services, initiated by the Customer, will be effective only if accepted in writing and signed by an authorized representative of Internet Advertising.
  13. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS Nothing in this Agreement will be construed as creating a partnership or relationship of employer and employee, principal and agent, partnership or joint venture between the Parties. Each Party will be deemed an independent contractor at all times and will have no right or authority to assume or create any obligation on behalf of the other Party, except as may be expressly provided herein.
  14. CONSTRUCTION AND INTERPRETATION Wherever in this TOU the masculine, feminine, or neuter gender is used, it will be construed as including all genders, and wherever the singular is used, it will be deemed to include the plural and vice versa, where the context so requires. The term “including,” wherever used in any provision of the TOU, means “including but without limiting the generality of any description preceding or succeeding such term.” The division of the TOU into sections/paragraphs, and the insertion of headings/captions, are for convenience of reference only and will not affect the construction or interpretation of the TOU. Any rule of construction to the effect that any ambiguity is to be resolved against the drafting party will not be applicable in the construction or interpretation of the TOU.

Privacy Policy

International Internet Advertising Services Inc.
Last updated: May 24, 2016 / Date of original issue: June 13, 2006.

INTRODUCTION

In 2000, the federal government of Canada enacted The Protection of Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”). Effective January 1, 2004, all organizations that collect, use or disclose personal information in the course of their commercial activities will be subject to PIPEDA or substantially similar provincial legislation (collectively, “privacy legislation”).

Briefly stated, privacy legislation requires that the consent of an individual be obtained for the collection and use of his or her personal information, that steps be taken to protect personal information and that one or more individuals be appointed to monitor compliance with the provisions of applicable privacy legislation.

International Internet Advertising Services Inc. (“Internet Advertising”) is committed to controlling the collection, use and disclosure of personal information provided by the customers and employees of Internet Advertising and has adopted this Privacy Policy to ensure the accuracy, confidentiality and integrity of such personal information.

 

APPLICATION

This Privacy Policy applies to personal information that Internet Advertising collects, uses or discloses in respect to any of its customers or employees in the course of its commercial activities.

It does not, however, apply in respect of the collection, use or disclosure of the following information by Internet Advertising: information that is publicly available, such as a customer’s name, address, telephone number and electronic address, when listed in a directory or made available through directory assistance; the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization; or personal information that Internet Advertising collects, uses or discloses for journalistic, artistic or literary purposes and does not collect, use or disclose for any other purpose.

The application of this Privacy Policy is subject to the requirements or provisions of any applicable legislation, regulations, tariffs or agreements (such as collective agreements), or the order of any court or other lawful authority. Various legal criteria independent of this Privacy Policy will determine whether federal or provincial privacy legislation applies to the personal information that Internet Advertising collects, uses or discloses in respect of its customers or employees. This Privacy Policy does not replace those criteria and nothing in this Privacy Policy should be construed as indicating which privacy legislation, if any, applies to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

 

DEFINITIONS

The following defined terms are used throughout this Privacy Policy:
Internet Advertising – means International Internet Advertising Services Inc.
Collection – means the act of gathering, acquiring, recording or obtaining personal information from any source, including third parties, by any means.
Consent – means voluntary agreement with the collection, use and disclosure of personal information for defined purposes. Consent can be either express or implied and can be provided directly by the individual or by an authorized representative.
Express consent can be given orally, electronically or in writing but is always unequivocal and does not require an inference on the part of
Internet Advertising. Implied consent is consent that can reasonably be inferred from an individual’s action or inaction. Customer – means an individual who:

  1. (a) subscribes for, uses, or applies to use, the products or services of Internet Advertising;
  2. (b) corresponds with Internet Advertising; or
  3. (c) enters a contest sponsored by Internet Advertising.

Disclosure – means making personal information available to third parties outside of Internet Advertising.
Employee – means an employee, former employee or pensioner of Internet Advertising and, for the purposes of this Privacy Policy, includes the directors, shareholders and security holders of Internet Advertising.

Personal information – means information about an identifiable individual recorded in any form and includes, but is not limited to, such things as race, ethnic origin, nationality, colour, age, gender, marital status, religion, education, medical information, criminal information, performance reviews, trade union membership, employment and financial history, income, address and telephone number, e-mail address, numerical identifiers such as Social Insurance Number, and views and personal opinions. Personal information also includes information about a customer’s product and service subscriptions and usage, credit information, billing records, service and any recorded complaints and, in the case of an employee, includes information found in personal employment files, performance appraisals and medical and benefits information. Publicly available information, such as a public directory listing of names, addresses, telephone numbers and electronic addresses, however, is not considered personal information.

Privacy legislation – means The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (Canada) and/or substantially similar provincial legislation.
Third party – means an individual other than the customer/employee or his or her agent or an organization other than Internet Advertising. Use – means the treatment, handling and management of personal information by Internet Advertising.

 

THE TEN PRIVACY PRINCIPLES

This Privacy Policy has been developed in accordance with the standards set out in PIPEDA and is modeled after the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information, CAN/CSA-Q830-96 (the “CSA Code”). Accordingly, the ten principles of fair information practices, as identified by the Canadian Standards Association, have been adopted by Internet Advertising and represent a formal statement of the minimum requirements to be adhered to by Internet Advertising for the protection of personal information collected
from the customers and employees of Internet Advertising.

 

PRINCIPLE 1 – ACCOUNTABILITY

Internet Advertising is responsible for the personal information under its control and shall designate one or more individuals who shall be accountable for the company’s compliance with the procedures and principles set out in this Privacy Policy.

1.1. Accountability for compliance by Internet Advertising with the policies and procedures set out in this Privacy Policy rests with the Privacy
Compliance Officer for that company, even though other individuals within the company may be responsible for the day-to-day collection
and processing of personal information. The Privacy Compliance Officer may, from time to time, designate one or more individuals within the company to act on his or her behalf.

1.2. Internet Advertising shall be responsible for the personal information in its possession or custody, including information that has been transferred to a third party for processing. Internet Advertising shall use contractual or other appropriate means to ensure a comparable level of protection while the information is being processed by a third party.

1.3. Internet Advertising has implemented policies and practices to give effect to the principles and procedures set out in this Privacy Policy, including:

(a) implementing procedures to protect personal information such as the adoption of physical, organization and technological security measures;
(b) establishing procedures to receive and respond to complaints and inquiries through the establishment of a confidential e-mail address; (c) training and communicating to staff information about the Internet Advertising policies and practices; and
(d) developing public information to explain the Internet Advertising policies and procedures.

 

PRINCIPLE 2 – IDENTIFYING PURPOSE

Internet Advertising will identify the purpose for which personal information is collected at or before the time the information is collected. The purposes for which information is collected, used or disclosed by Internet Advertising must be those that a reasonable person would consider are appropriate in the circumstances.

2.1. Internet Advertising will document the purposes for which personal information is collected in order to comply with the Openness principle (See Principle 8) and the Individual Access principle (See Principle 9).

2.2. Identifying the purpose for which personal information is collected at or before the time of collection allows Internet Advertising to determine the information it needs to collect to fulfill these purposes. The Limiting Collection principle (Principle 4) requires Internet Advertising to collect only that information necessary for the purposes that have been identified.

2.3. The identified purposes for which personal information is collected shall be specified at or before the time of collection to the customer or employee from whom the personal information is collected. Depending upon the way in which the information is collected, this shall be done orally or in writing.

2.4. When Internet Advertising proposes to use personal information that has been collected for a purpose not previously identified, it will identify the new purpose before using such personal information. Unless the new purpose is required by law, or consent is otherwise not required pursuant to privacy legislation, the consent of the individual shall be obtained before the personal information is used for the new purpose.

2.5. Individuals responsible for collecting personal information on behalf of Internet Advertising will explain to customers and/or employees the purposes for which the information is being collected, including any purposes that may not be immediately obvious to the individual.

2.6 The purposes for which the personal information of employees is collected may include, but is not limited to: administering payroll and employee benefit programs; conducting performance evaluations and discipline; effecting employee training;
conducting internal reviews, investigations and complaint resolution processes;
participating in union negotiations and labour arbitrations; facilitating transactional due diligence reviews; complying with legal and regulatory obligations.

2.7 The purposes for which the personal information of customers is collected may include, but is not limited to: processing commercial transactions; communicating with customers; establishing and maintaining commercial relations; developing, marketing or providing products and services; recommending particular products and services; conducting market research and surveys; managing and developing business opportunities; conducting investigations and complaint resolution processes;
facilitating transactional due diligence reviews; complying with legal and regulatory obligations.

2.8 Anonymous or “non-personal” information gathered by Internet Advertising through its web site may be used for technical, research and analytical purposes. Information collected through surveys, existing files and public archives may be used by Internet Advertising to analyze its markets and to develop or enhance service offerings.

 

PRINCIPLE 3 – CONSENT

The knowledge and consent of the individual are required for the collection, use or disclosure of personal information, except where consent is not required by privacy legislation as, for example, where the collection, use or disclosure of personal information is solely for journalistic, artistic or literary purposes.

3.1. Consent is required for the collection of personal information and the subsequent use or disclosure of this information. Generally, Internet Advertising will seek consent for the use or disclosure of the information at the time of collection. In certain circumstances, consent with respect to the use or disclosure of personal information may be sought after the information has been collected but before the personal information is used (for example, when Internet Advertising wants to use information for a purpose not previously identified). In obtaining consent, Internet Advertising shall use reasonable efforts to ensure that a customer or employee is advised of the identified purposes for which personal information will be used or disclosed. Purposes shall be stated in a manner that can be reasonably understood by the customer or employee.

3.2. In certain circumstances personal information may be collected, used or disclosed without the knowledge and consent of the individual. For example, Internet Advertising may collect or use personal information without the knowledge or consent of its employees and/or customers if the collection or use of personal information is clearly in the interests of the individual and consent cannot be obtained in a timely way, such as when the individual is a minor, seriously ill or mentally incapacitated or if seeking the consent of the individual might defeat the purpose of collecting the information such as in the investigation of a breach of an agreement or a contravention of a federal or provincial law. Personal information may also be used or disclosed without the knowledge or consent of the individual in the case of an emergency where the life, health or security of an individual is threatened. Internet Advertising may disclose personal information without knowledge or consent to a lawyer representing the company, to collect a debt, to comply with a subpoena, warrant or other court order, or as may be otherwise required by law.

3.3. Internet Advertising will not, as a condition of the supply of a product or service, require an individual to consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of information beyond that required to fulfill the explicitly specified and legitimate purposes.

3.4. In obtaining consent, Internet Advertising will take into account the sensitivity of the personal information and the reasonable expectations of its customers and employees. Consent will not be obtained through deception. For example:
A viewer who enters a contest online through www.Internet Advertising.com would reasonably expect that his or her relevant contact information (name, phone number, personal identification) would be collected and used to identify the viewer if and when he or she was selected as a contest winner. However, the viewer would not reasonably expect that this information would be used for a purpose other than the administration of the contest, without the viewer’s knowledge and consent.

An individual filing an application for employment with Internet Advertising would reasonably expect that his or her age and marital status would be used for the purposes of administering benefit plans.

An employee filing an application for an Internet Advertising dental coverage plan would reasonably expect that the relevant information (employee identification number, name, date of birth) would be collected, used and communicated to third parties in accordance with the dental coverage and for such period of time as the coverage was in effect.

3.5 The way in which Internet Advertising seeks consent may vary, depending on the circumstances and the type of information collected. Internet Advertising will generally seek express consent when the information is likely to be considered sensitive. It will rely on implied consent only where collection and use of the personal information is directly related to a transaction or exchange of information in which the individual is directly participating. Consent may also be given by an authorized representative (such as a legal guardian or a person having power of attorney).

3.6 Consent may be obtained in any one of the following ways: an application form may be used to seek consent, collect information and inform the individual of the use that will be made of the information. By completing and signing the form, the individual is giving consent to the collection and the specified uses; a check-off box may be used to allow individuals to request that their names and addresses not be given to other organizations. Individuals who do not check the box are assumed to consent to the transfer of their information to third parties; consent may be given orally when information is collected over the telephone; or consent may be given at the time that individuals use a product or service.


3.7 Generally, the use of products and services by a customer, or the acceptance of employment or benefits by an employee, constitutes implied consent for Internet Advertising to collect, use and disclose personal information for all identified purposes.

3.8 An individual may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. Internet Advertising will inform individuals of the implications of withdrawing consent. Customers and employees may contact Internet Advertising for more information regarding the implications of withdrawing consent.

 

PRINCIPLE 4 – LIMITING COLLECTION

Internet Advertising shall limit the collection of personal information to that which is necessary for the purposes identified by the company. Personal information shall be collected by fair and lawful means.

4.1 Internet Advertising will not collect personal information indiscriminately. Both the amount and the type of information collected shall be limited to that which is necessary to fulfill the purposes identified. Internet Advertising shall specify the type of information collected as part of its information-handling policies and practices, in accordance with the Openness principle (Principle 8).
4.2 The requirement that personal information be collected by fair and lawful means is intended to prevent Internet Advertising from collecting information by misleading or deceiving individuals about the purpose for which information is being collected. Consent to the collection of personal information must not be obtained through Deception

 

PRINCIPLE 5 – LIMITING USE, DISCLOSURE AND RETENTION

Personal information shall not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with the consent of the individual or as required by law. Personal information shall be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes for which it was collected.

5.1 Where Internet Advertising intends to use personal information for a purpose not previously identified, Internet Advertising shall document the new purpose and shall obtain the consent of the individual prior to using the information for a new purpose.

5.2 Internet Advertising may disclose the personal information of its employees:
to human resources, payroll, benefits, information management, medical and security personnel;
to third party service providers for the purposes of administering payroll and benefits programs;
to union representatives and labour arbitrators;
to internal or external legal counsel and auditors;
to the Privacy Compliance Officers of Internet Advertising;
to the management personnel of Internet Advertising;
in the context of providing references regarding current or former employees in response to requests from prospective employers and/or financial institutions;
to prospective parties in the context of a transactional due diligence review; and where disclosure is required by law.

5.3 Internet Advertising may disclose the personal information of its customers:
to third party service providers;
to internal or external legal counsel and auditors;
to the Privacy Compliance Officers of Internet Advertising;
to the management personnel of Internet Advertising;
to third parties for the development, enhancement or marketing of Internet Advertising products or services;
to an agent retained by Internet Advertising in connection with the collection of the customer’s account;
to credit grantors and reporting agencies;
to a third party or parties, where the customer consents to such disclosure;
to prospective parties in the context of a transactional due diligence review; and where disclosure is required by law.

5.4 Except as required or permitted by law, when disclosure is made to a party other than Internet Advertising or a third party provider of personal information processing services, the consent of the individual shall be obtained and reasonable steps shall be taken to ensure that any such third party has personal information privacy procedures and policies in place that are at least comparable to those implemented by Internet Advertising.

5.5 Unless authorized by the customer, Internet Advertising will not sell, lease or trade the personal information of their employees or customers to other parties.

5.6 Personal information shall be kept only as long as it remains necessary or relevant for the identified purposes or as required by law. Depending on the circumstances, where personal information has been used to make a decision about a customer or an employee, Internet Advertising shall retain, for a period of time that is reasonably sufficient to allow for access by the customer or employee, either the actual information or the rationale for making the decision.

5.7 Internet Advertising has adopted guidelines and procedures with respect to the retention of personal information. Personal information that is no longer necessary or relevant for the identified purposes or required by law to be retained, shall be destroyed, erased or made anonymous.

 

PRINCIPLE 6 – ACCURACY

Personal information shall be as accurate, complete and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used.

6.1 Personal information used by Internet Advertising shall be sufficiently accurate, complete and up-to-date to minimize the possibility that inappropriate information may be used to make a decision about the individual customer or employee. The extent to which personal information will be accurate, complete and up-to-date will depend upon the use of the information, taking into account the interests of the individual.

6.2 Internet Advertising will not, however, routinely update personal information, unless this is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected. Personal information about customers and employees shall be updated only as and when necessary to fulfill the identified purposes or upon notification by the individual.

6.3 Internet Advertising shall ensure that personal information that is used on an ongoing basis, including information that is disclosed to third parties, is generally accurate and up-to-date, unless limits to the requirement for accuracy are clearly set out

 

PRINCIPLE 7 – SAFEGUARDS

Personal information shall be protected by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.

7.1 Internet Advertising will implement security safeguards to protect personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification, regardless of the format in which the information is held.

7.2 The nature of the safeguards will vary depending on (i) the sensitivity of the information that has been collected, (ii) the amount, distribution and format of the information, and (iii) the method of storage.

7.3 Physical measures such as locked filing cabinets and restricted access to offices, organizational measures such as security clearances and limiting access on a “need-to-know” basis, and technological measures such as the use of passwords and encryption have been adopted by Internet Advertising.

7.4 Each employee of Internet Advertising shall be made aware of the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of personal information.

7.5 Personal information disclosed to third parties shall be protected by contractual agreement stipulating the confidentiality of the information and the purposes for which it is to be used.

7.6 The disposal or destruction of personal information shall be carried out to prevent unauthorized access to personal information.

 

PRINCIPLE 8 – OPENNESS

Internet Advertising shall make readily available to its customers and employees specific information about its policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.

8.1 Internet Advertising will be open about its policies and practices with respect to the management of personal information. Customers and employees shall be able to acquire information about Internet Advertising’s policies and practices with respect to the management of personal information without unreasonable effort.

8.2 Such information shall be made available through the Internet Advertising website and through the Internet Advertising Intranet sites and shall include:
the name or title, and the address, of each Privacy Compliance Officer;
the means of gaining access to personal information held by Internet Advertising;
a description of the type of personal information held by Internet Advertising including a general account of its use;
copies of any brochures or other information that explain Internet Advertising policies, standards or codes; and a description of what personal information is made available to related organizations (e.g. subsidiaries).

 

PRINCIPLE 9 – INDIVIDUAL ACCESS

Upon request, an individual shall be informed of the existence, use and disclosure of his or her personal information and shall be given access to that information except where Internet Advertising is permitted or required by law not to disclose personal information to the individual customer or employee. An individual customer or employee shall be able to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information disclosed to him or her and have it amended as appropriate.

9.1. Upon request, Internet Advertising shall inform an individual customer or employee whether it holds personal information about that individual (except where permitted or required by law not to disclose personal information) and shall afford the individual a reasonable opportunity to review the personal information in his or her file at minimal or no cost to the individual. Internet Advertising shall provide an account of the use that has been made or is being made of the personal information and an account of the third parties to which the personal information has been disclosed. Where reasonably possible, Internet Advertising shall indicate the source of the personal information.

9.2 In order to safeguard personal information, a customer or employee may be required to provide sufficient identification information to permit Internet Advertising to account for the existence, use and disclosure of personal information and to authorize access to the individual’s file. Any such information shall be used only for this purpose.

9.3 In certain situations, Internet Advertising may not be able to provide access to all of the personal information that they hold about a customer or employee. For example, Internet Advertising is not required to provide access to information if doing so would likely reveal personal information about a third party or could reasonably be expected to threaten the life or security of another individual. Similarly, Internet Advertising may not be required to provide access to information if disclosure would reveal confidential commercial information, if the information is protected by solicitor-client privilege, if the information was generated in the course of a formal dispute resolution process, or if the information was collected in relation to the investigation of a breach of an agreement or a contravention of a federal or provincial law. If access to personal information cannot be provided, Internet Advertising shall provide the reasons for denying access upon request.

9.4 In providing an account of third parties to which it has disclosed personal information about a customer or an employee, Internet Advertising shall attempt to be as specific as possible. When it is not possible to provide a list of the organizations to which it has actually disclosed personal information, Internet Advertising shall provide a list of organizations to which it may have disclosed personal information about the customer or employee.

9.5 Internet Advertising will respond to an individual’s request within a reasonable time and in any event within thirty (30) days of the request. The time for responding to a request may be extended for up to an additional thirty (30) days if meeting the time limit would unreasonably interfere with the activities of Internet Advertising, or if the time required to undertake any consultations necessary to respond to the request would make the time limit impracticable to meet. Internet Advertising may also extend the time for responding for such
period of time as is necessary to be able to convert the personal information into an alternative format. Internet Advertising will provide notice to the individual of any extension taken within thirty (30) days of the individual’s request and will advise the individual of the right to make a complaint to the Privacy Commissioner about the extension. They will provide the requested information or make it available in a form that is generally understandable. For example, if abbreviations or codes are used to record information, Internet Advertising will provide a corresponding explanation.

9.6 Upon request by an individual with sensory disabilities, Internet Advertising will give access to personal information about the individual in an alternative format if a version of the information already exists in that format or if its conversion to an alternative format is necessary
to allow the individual to exercise rights to request correction, challenge compliance of Internet Advertising under Principle 10 or file a formal complaint pursuant to applicable privacy legislation.

9.7 Internet Advertising shall promptly correct or complete any personal information found to be inaccurate or incomplete. Any unresolved differences as to the accuracy or completeness shall be noted in the individual’s file. Where appropriate, Internet Advertising shall transmit to third parties having access to the personal information in question any amended information or the existence of any unresolved differences.

9.8 A customer can obtain information or seek access to his or her individual file by contacting Internet Advertising. An employee can obtain information or seek access to his or her individual file by contacting his or her immediate supervisor within Internet Advertising.

 

PRINCIPLE 10 – CHALLENGING COMPLIANCE

An individual customer or employee shall be able to address a challenge concerning compliance with the principles in this Privacy Policy to his or her designated Privacy Compliance Officer.

10.1 Internet Advertising shall maintain procedures for addressing and responding to all inquiries or complaints from its customers and employees about the companies’ handling of personal information.

10.2 Internet Advertising will inform their customers and employees about the existence of these procedures as well as the availability of complaint procedures.

10.3 Internet Advertising shall investigate all complaints concerning compliance with this Privacy Policy. If a complaint is found to be justified, Internet Advertising shall take appropriate measures to resolve the complaint including, if necessary, amending its policies and procedures. A customer or employee shall be informed of the outcome of the investigation regarding his or her complaint.

10.4 If an individual is not satisfied with the response from the Privacy Compliance Officer, he or she may have recourse to additional remedies under applicable privacy legislation. For further information, contact the applicable governmental agency listed in the attached Schedule A.

Thank you! I forgot to mention – it looks awesome I just cannot begin to thank you enough! I am so very happy with how the website has come along!!! Love the changes, and just the other day I had a lady come in and say she found me via Google and really liked the website. So thankful for all you have done with the website. Blessings and thank you!
Marlene Hendeerson
I just wanted to say what a GREAT job you and your team have done with the updated skin on the AEA website. It is very pleasing to the eye and enjoyable to work with!
Morgan Banks
Coordinator
Oh my goodness! You just made our lives so much easier!
I have relied on the team at Internet Advertising for many years, and they have never let me down! When I was running Ambassador Travel, we had continuous deadlines for print ads, sales newsletters, and internet ads, and the deadlines were always met. Even when they were given very short notice, the work was always top quality and came in on budget. More recently, I was about to launch my first book, www.financialfitnessbooks.com, and needed a website and a promotional plan set up in a real hurry.

I was amazed with how quickly everything was completed, and truly delighted with the results. Thanks to the work at IIAS, my book became an Amazon best-seller on June 12, 2012. Internet Advertising has also set up my website and newsletter package for our Silver Star rental condo. www.silverstays.com This successful website has allowed us to keep the unit occupied throughout the year.

For almost a decade, IIAS has been there for me as I created new projects. What has always impressed me is how quickly they responded and how they were always able to come up with a solution for my technical needs. I have no hesitation in recommending Internet Advertising for any type of design, web or promotional work. They don’t just do the work – they deliver results.
I love it! I’m so excited with the changes you’ve done to the web site. It’s definitely something to be proud of. I can’t wait to print new business cards and get some logo jackets made for staff!
Sharon Forbes
Co-Executive Director
WOW! That looks incredible, I love it! Thank you Mike.
Heidi Klein
Writer - Editor
My company used IIAS and they were great, my website is professional, easy to use and suits me. I met with Mike before just for a consultation and he was able to explain everything in detail and in what order things should go. My website was made earlier than the time frame that was given and was definitely up to my standards. I would recommend IIAS to anybody if you are looking to have a website done.
Andrew Dicknoether

Wow….the website looks great. Thank you for making those changes and adding the extras!
