What Is Personal Information?
What Personal Information Do We Collect?
You can visit our Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself, including your email address. Our web server may collect information related to your visit to our Site, including: the IP address and domain used to access our Site; the type and version of your browser; the website you came from to access our Site; the page you entered and exited at; any website page that is viewed by that IP address; and what country you are from. We use this information to monitor our Site’s performance (e.g., number of visits, average time spent, page views) and for our business purposes such as working to continually upgrade our Site.
In addition, we collect the Personal Information that you submit to our Site, such as your name, residential or business address, email address, [employment history, training records] and any other contact or other information that you choose to provide by:

- in any other way interacting with us through the Site, or in any way facilitated by the Site.
Where you request information from us, we may use the email address that you provide to send you information that we believe may be of interest to you. If you have asked us to put you on an email mailing list to provide you with certain information on a regular basis, such as company news or investor updates, you may ask us to remove you from the list at any time (using the unsubscribe instructions provided with each email you receive from us).
When you visit the Site, we place a “cookie” on the hard drive of your computer to track your visit. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your hard drive through your web browser that can only be read by the website that placed the cookie on your hard drive. The cookie acts as an identification card and allows our Site to identify you and to record your passwords and/or preferences. The cookie allows us to track your visit to the Site so that we can better understand your use of our Site so that we can customize and tailor the Site to better meet your needs.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. However, on most web browsers you may change this setting to have your web browser either: (1) notify you prior to a website placing a cookie on your hard drive so that you can decide whether or not to accept the cookie; or (2) automatically prevent the placing of a cookie on your hard drive. It should be noted that if cookies are not accepted, you will not be able to access a number of web pages found on the Site.
What About Links to Other Websites?
Our Site may contain links to other websites that may be subject to less stringent privacy standards. We cannot assume any responsibility for the privacy practices, policies or actions of the third parties that operate these websites. PetroTal is not responsible for how such third parties collect, use or disclose your Personal Information. You should review the privacy policies of these websites before providing them with Personal Information.
Why Do We Collect, Use and Disclose Personal Information?
Your Personal Information may be shared with our employees, contractors, consultants, affiliates and other parties who require such information to assist us with establishing, maintaining and managing our relationship with you. In addition, Personal Information may be disclosed or transferred to another party in the event of a change in ownership of, or a grant of a security interest in, all or a part of PetroTal.
We may collect, use or disclose your Personal Information without your knowledge or consent where we are permitted or required by applicable law or regulations to do so.
Your Consent Is Important to Us
We ask for your express consent for some purposes and may not be able to provide certain services if you are unwilling to provide consent to the collection, use or disclosure of certain Personal Information. Where express consent is needed, we will normally ask you to provide your consent in writing.
You may change or withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, by contacting PetroTal using the contact information provided on the “Contact” portion of the Site. In some circumstances, a change in or withdrawal of consent may severely limit our ability to provide products or services to, or acquire products or services from, you. All communications with respect to such withdrawal or variation of consent should be in writing and addressed to PetroTal.
Minors and children
The Site is not intended for individuals under the age of majority in their province or territory of residence or, if a product is specifically regulated, under the legal age for that product. We do not intentionally collect Personal Information from children under 13. If you are a parent or guardian and believe your child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us at the address below to request deletion.
How Is Your Personal Information Protected?
PetroTal endeavours to maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the Personal Information in question. These safeguards are designed to prevent your Personal Information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification or disclosure.
PetroTal retains your Personal Information only as long as is reasonable to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected or for legal or business purposes. We render your Personal Information non-identifying or destroy records containing Personal Information once the information is no longer needed. [We use appropriate security measures when destroying your Personal Information, including shredding paper records and permanently deleting electronic records.]
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while this Site strives to protect your Personal Information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once the Site receives your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
Updating Your Personal Information
It is important that the information contained in our records is both accurate and current. If your Personal Information happens to change during the course of our relationship, please keep us informed of such changes.
In some circumstances we may not agree with your request to change your Personal Information and will instead append an alternative text to the record in question.

Subject to certain exceptions prescribed by applicable law, you have the right to access your Personal Information.
You can ask to see the Personal Information that we hold about you. If you want to review, verify or correct your Personal Information, please contact PetroTal using the contact information provided below. Please note that any such communication must be in writing.
In the event that we cannot provide you with access to your Personal Information, we will endeavour to inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.
