Website Users

Like most website operators, we collect information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each user visit and request. Our purpose in collecting such information is to better understand how the users use the Site and its services. From time to time we may release such information in the aggregate, for example, by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our service.

Cloud-Based Services

Source.Online Inc. offers online and cloud-based accounting and bookkeeping services. We collect and use client information in the ordinary course of business and in so doing take reasonable precautions and have security procedures in place to maintain the integrity of such services and protect against the misuse of client information. Given that transmitting data online cannot be guaranteed to be absolutely secure, we do not ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted electronically.

Gathering of Client Information

Certain users may choose to interact with the Site in ways that require us to gather client information. The amount and type of client information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. We do not disclose client information other than as described herein.

We disclose client information only to those of our employees, contractors, and any affiliated organizations, some of which may be located outside of Canada, who need to know that information to process it on our behalf or to provide services and who have agreed not to disclose it to others. Other than to these affiliated individuals and organizations, as described above, we disclose information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of our Site, third parties, or the public at large.
Our service providers may host data in the United States of America (“USA”), and accordingly your information may be made available to government agencies in the USA if our service providers receive a government request for access.
We take commercially responsible measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of client information.
