Privacy Policy

Canadian Association of Neurophysiological Monitoring (CANM) values your privacy and we take steps intended to meet our privacy obligations with respect to personal information under applicable Canadian privacy legislation. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use, store, process, and share your information. By accessing or browsing the Site, you expressly consent to the collection, use, storage, processing, and disclosure of your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY, YOU SHOULD NOT ACCESS THE WEBSITE OR USE THE SERVICE.

Information Collection

When you visit the Site, you can browse without submitting any personal information about yourself. We will, however, receive and store some non-personally identifiable information about you, as described below. If you Subscribe or apply for Membership to CANM, personally identifiable information, i.e., information that can identify you, including, for example, your name or email address, may be requested.

If you create an account or purchase paid features, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our payment form, including, but not limited to, name and email address. Payment is made through PayPal. You will be directed to the PayPal website and provide your payment information directly to PayPal. PayPal’s privacy policy applies to the information you provide on the PayPal website.

In order to receive certain communications from us, such as responses to user inquiries or CANM news, you will be required to submit your email address to us.

Similar to other websites, we may collect some information automatically from you and store it in log files. This collection may include, but is not limited to: your domain name and host for Internet access, the Internet address of the site from which you came, the date and time of your access, your computer’s IP address and information about its operating system, browser, and host, the date and time you access the Service and the pages you visit. We collect this non-identifying information in order to help diagnose problems and to gather broad demographic information. We may automatically collect information using various mechanisms, including but not limited to cookies and pixels.

A “cookie” is a small text file that is stored on a computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies for analyzing trends, site administration, tracking user movement, and to gather demographic information from our base as a whole. Some cookies remain on your computer until you delete them. Others, like session ID cookies, expire when you close your browser. We do not control the use of cookies by third parties.

“Pixels” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a computer’s hard drive, pixels are small graphics that are about the size of the period at the end of the sentence that are embedded invisibly on web pages or in HTML-based emails. Our third-party analytics provider, MonsterInsights, may place pixels on the Site that track what other websites you visit (both before and after visiting the Site). MonsterInsights may use information obtained from pixels to help us improve our website. We do not control the use of pixels by third parties.

We use third parties to help us operate and improve our Service. In doing so, we may share with these third parties non-personally identifiable information about users’ use of the Service. These third party providers also use cookies. We use third party analytics providers, such as MonsterInsights, to provide us with general demographic and interest-level information about our users and to help create a better user experience. We do not control information collected by third parties and are not responsible for their use of that information.

The Site may contain links to third party websites (“Linked Sites”), including social media features such as Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter buttons. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of any Linked Sites and Linked Sites may collect personally identifiable information from you that are not subject to our control. The data collection practices of Linked Sites will be governed by that site’s privacy policy.

Information Use

We will use your personally identifiable information to a more personalized experience; to communicate with you; and to provide you information about our Services. Except as set out in this privacy policy, we will not disclose any personally identifiable information without your permission unless we are legally entitled or required to do so or if we believe that such action is necessary to protect and/or defend our rights, property or personal safety and those of our website users or other individuals.

We may use non-personally identifiable information and aggregate information for any lawful purpose, including, but not limited to, analyzing trends, managing and administering the Service, tracking users’ movements, for research purposes, or to improve our business and the Service.

We will retain your information indefinitely, or as long as legally required or allowed. We may dispose of any information in our discretion without notice, subject to applicable law. We do not undertake any retention obligations through this statement.

Information Disclosure

Due to the complexity and open nature of the Internet, no transmission of data over the Internet can be 100% secure. There is always a risk that information collected by and/or displayed on the Website may be compromised or accessed notwithstanding the steps we take to secure your information. Accordingly, you agree that you are providing such information at your own risk.


Keeping your information secure is of great concern to us. We exercise care in facilitating the transmission of information between your device or computer and our servers (or the third party servers that operate and store information for the Service). Any personally identifiable information collected by CANM is stored in operating environments that are not available to the public. CANM employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. This software receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that has contacted our network, the date and time of the visit and the pages visited. While we have mechanisms in place to safeguard your personal information after we receive it, no transmission of data over the internet can be 100% secure.

International Use

Our servers and offices are located in Canada, so your information may be transferred to, stored, or processed in Canada. While the data protection, privacy, and other laws of Canada might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, we take many steps to protect your privacy.

By using the Services, you understand and consent to the collection, storage, processing, and transfer of your information to our facilities in Canada and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this policy.

Changes and Updates to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to revise this Privacy Policy by updating it and posting it at, with the new terms taking effect on the date of posting. You should periodically review this Privacy Policy to ensure you are familiar with the most current version. Your use of the website and Services after the Effective Date posted above constitutes your acceptance of the updated Privacy Policy.

Accessing, Updating, or Deleting User Content and Your Personal Information

You may access, update, or delete your personal information by contacting us at We will make good faith efforts to resolve requests to correct inaccurate information except where the request is unreasonable, requires disproportionate technical effort or expense, jeopardizes the privacy of others, or would be impractical.
