Respecting privacy and protecting personal information are essential to us. Therefore, through this Policy, we aim to protect them in accordance with applicable laws.
To ensure this protection, ARKYS WEB SOFTWARE INC. commits to collect, process, and share information that can identify an individual only when the individual has consented to it, unless it is allowed or required by law, in which case your consent will not be necessary.
The Policy aims to inform users of the reasons and how ARKYS WEB SOFTWARE INC. or anyone acting on its behalf will collect and use their personal information. It is written in clear language to ensure informed consent from users.
For the purposes of this Policy, “personal information” means any information about an identifiable person or information that can identify a person. Whenever possible, we will anonymize, pseudonymize, and/or aggregate this information so that it no longer identifies a person.

3. Consent Collection Methods:
We commit to obtaining consent before collecting an individual’s personal information. Consent can be explicit or implicit and can be provided directly by the individual or their authorized representative.
We prefer to obtain explicit consent, whether verbally, electronically, or in writing. However, implicit consent may be reasonably inferred from a person’s action or inaction. For example, providing a name and address to receive a publication or a name and phone number to get a response to a question is considered implicit consent to the collection of information containing personal information. To determine the appropriate type of consent, we consider the sensitivity of the personal information involved, the purposes for which it is collected, and the reasonable expectations of a person in a similar situation.
If we intend to use personal information for a new purpose, we will describe the intended use and request consent again.
It is not always possible, especially in the case of a government request, to obtain a person’s consent to collect, use, or disclose their personal information. We commit to never disclose such information except as required or permitted by law and in accordance with this Policy.
