This privacy statement relates to all of our activities, unless we have provided you with a separate privacy statement for a particular product, service or activity.
Please review this privacy statement carefully.

Meaning of Personal Information
"Personal information" means information about an identifiable individual. This information may include, but is not limited to, your name, mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number, SIN number, bank account and accreditation status.
Personal information does not include any business contact information that is solely used to communicate with you in relation to your employment, business or profession, such as your name, position name or title, work address, work telephone number, work fax number or work electronic address.
Personal information also does not include information that has been anonymized or aggregated in such a way that there is no serious possibility it can be used to identify an individual, whether on its own or in combination with other information.
Your Consent to Collection, Use and Disclosure
We collect, use and disclose your personal information with your consent or as permitted or required by law. How we obtain your consent (i.e. the form we use) will depend on the circumstances, as well as the sensitivity of the information collected. Subject to applicable laws, your consent may be express or implied, depending on the circumstances and the sensitivity of the personal information in question. If you choose to provide personal information to us, we assume that you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as outlined in this privacy statement.
Typically, we will seek your consent at the time your personal information is collected. Where we want to use your personal information for a purpose not previously identified to you at the time of collection, we will seek your consent prior to our use of such information for this new purpose.
You may withdraw your consent to our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information at any time by contacting us using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below. However, before we implement the withdrawal of consent, we may require proof of your identity. In some cases, withdrawal of your consent may mean that we will no longer be able to provide certain products or services.
If you provide personal information about another individual to us, it is your responsibility to obtain the consent of that individual to enable us to collect, use and disclose his or her information as described in this privacy statement.
Personal Information We Collect
The personal information we collect is generally in one or more of the following categories.
- Products and Services
- For individuals who use our products and services, we may collect information from you or from your use of our products or services.
- Information you submit to us: we collect information that you submit through your use of our products or services, including information you provide in connection with the creation and management of your account for our products or services, such as your name, e-mail address and other contact information and password.
- Information we automatically collect: we collect log data and usage information relating to your use of our products and services.
- For individuals who visit our website located at getwalter.com or any of our related websites (collectively, “our website”), we may collect information from you or from your activities on the site.

- Other Interactions
- For individuals who otherwise interact with us, whether in person, by phone or email, through social media or otherwise, including individuals who might be interested in acquiring our products or services, who sign-up to receive newsletters or other communications, or who respond to surveys and questionnaires, we may collect information that you provide to us during these interactions. This information may include your name, e-mail address and other contact information.
We do not collect payment card information. If you make an online payment using a payment card, such as a credit card or debit card, you are connected directly to our online payment processing service provider and your payment card information is collected and processed by that service provider.
How We Use Your Personal Information
We may use your personal information and other information for purposes such as:
- to provide you with our products and services and to support your use of our products and services;
- to contact you relating to our products and services;
- to monitor and improve our products and services, and to develop new products and services;

- to conduct research and analysis related to our business, products and services;
- to respond to inquiries and other requests;
- to collect opinions and comments in regard to our products and services;
- to provide you with information that we think may interest you, including in regards to our products and services; and
- to investigate legal claims.
We may use your personal information and other information for purposes for which we have obtained your consent, and for such other purposes as may be permitted or required by applicable law.
We do not use the information we collect to provide advertising of third party products and services or targeted advertising of Company products and services across third party websites or service offerings.
How We Share Your Personal Information
We rely on third party services providers to perform a variety of services on our behalf, such as e-commerce providers, payment card processers, telephone and technical support providers, hosting, data storage and processing service providers, and research and analytics providers.
If we provide your information to service providers, then we require that the service providers maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and keep your personal information secure. We also require that they only use your personal information for the limited purposes for which it is provided. When our service providers no longer need your personal information for those limited purposes, we require that they dispose of the personal information. In some circumstances, we may permit our service providers to retain aggregated, anonymized or statistical information that does not identify you. We do not authorize the service providers to disclose your personal information to unauthorized parties or to use your personal information for their direct marketing purposes. If you would like more information about our service providers, please contact us using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below.
Additionally, we may use and disclose your information when we believe such use or disclosure is permitted, necessary or appropriate: (a) under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (b) to comply with legal process; (c) to respond to requests from public and government authorities, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; (d) to enforce the terms of the agreements for our products and services; (e) to protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates or subsidiaries; (f) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, and/or those of our affiliates, you or others; and (g) to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. In addition, we may transfer your personal information and other information to a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, brands, affiliates, subsidiaries or other assets.
If we otherwise intend to disclose your personal information to a third party, we will identify that third party and the purpose for the disclosure, and obtain your consent.
Opting Out of Communications
If you no longer want to receive marketing-related emails from us, you may opt-out of receiving marketing-related emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email you receive from us, or, if you created an online account when you registered to receive our emails, you may log-in to your account and make changes to your communication preferences. You may also opt-out by contacting us directly using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below.
We will endeavour to respond to your opt-out request promptly, but we ask that you please allow us a reasonable time to process your request. Please note that if you opt-out from receiving marketing-related emails, we may still need to send you communications about your use of our products or services, or other matters.
Retention of Personal Information
We will use, disclose or retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which that personal information was collected and as permitted or required by law.
We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual and technological security measures with a view to protecting your personal information and other information from loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. We have taken steps to ensure that the only personnel who are granted access to your personal information are those with a business ‘need-to-know’ or whose duties reasonably require such information.
Despite the measure outlined above, no method of information transmission or information storage is 100% secure or error-free, so we unfortunately cannot guarantee absolute security. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any information that you provided to us has been compromised), please contact us immediately using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below.
Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information
We will take steps to ensure that your personal information is kept as accurate, complete and up-to-date as reasonably necessary. We will not routinely update your personal information, unless such a process is necessary. We expect you, from time to time, to supply us with updates to your personal information, when required.
You may make a written request to review any personal information about you that we have collected, used or disclosed, and we will provide you with any such personal information to the extent required by law. You may also challenge the accuracy or completeness of your personal information in our records. If you successfully demonstrate that your personal information in our records is inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend the personal information as required.
We may require that you provide sufficient identification to fulfill your request to access or correct your personal information. Any such identifying information will be used only for this purpose.
International Transfer and Storage of Information
Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage third party service providers. As a result, your personal information may be transferred to countries outside your country of residence, which may have different data protection rules than in your country. While such information is outside of your country, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is located, and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of such other country, pursuant to the laws of such country.
Third Party Websites and Services
This privacy statement applies only to our products and services. This privacy statement does not extend to any websites or products or services provided by third parties. We do not assume responsibility for the privacy practices of such third parties, and we encourage you to review all third party privacy policies prior to using third party websites or products or services.
Our products and services are not intended for children under the age of 16, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16. Children under the age of 16 should not use our products and services and should not provide us with their personal information.
Privacy Statement Updates
This privacy statement is current as of the “updated” date which appears at the top of this page. We may modify this privacy statement from time to time. When changes are made to this privacy statement they will become immediately effective when published in a revised privacy statement posted on our website unless otherwise noted. We may also communicate the changes through our services or by other means. By submitting your personal information to us, by registering for or using any of the services we offer, by using our website, or by voluntarily interacting with us after we publish or communicate a notice about the changes to this privacy statement, you consent to our collecting, using and disclosing your personal information as set out in the revised privacy statement.

Attention: Privacy Officer, Walter Software Corporation,

These Terms of Service (this “Agreement”) set forth the terms and conditions that apply to your access and use of the internet website located at getwalter.com (collectively, the “Site”), each owned and operated by Walter Software Corporation (“Provider”, “we”, “our” or “us”), and the services available thereon, including without limitation the services that enable you to track and issue securities of a legal entity, raise financings and conduct other activities related to corporate finance (the “Services”).

IF YOU ARE ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF A COMPANY OR OTHER LEGAL ENTITY, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO BIND SUCH ENTITY TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, IN WHICH CASE THE TERMS “YOU” OR “YOUR” WILL REFER TO SUCH ENTITY.

We may amend any part of this Agreement by adding, deleting, or varying its terms from time-to-time in our discretion.

If you accept this Agreement, you represent that you have the capacity to be bound by it.
Intellectual Property Rights
All material available on the Site and all material and services provided by or through Provider, its affiliates, subsidiaries, employees, agents, licensors or other commercial partners including, but not limited to, software, all informational text, software documentation, design of and “look and feel”, layout, photographs, graphics, audio, video, messages, interactive and instant messaging, design and functions, files, documents, images, or other materials, whether publicly posted or privately transmitted as well as all derivative works thereof (collectively, the “Materials”), are owned by us or our licensors or service providers, and are protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property laws.
Subject to your compliance with all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, during the term of this Agreement, Provider grants to you a non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, revocable, limited-purpose right to access and use the Materials that we make available to you. You are not permitted to download, copy or otherwise store any Materials.
If Provider, in its sole discretion and without notice, considers that there is an immediate security or operational risk to the Services or any of its, your or a third party system, then Provider may immediately suspend access to or use of the Services. The suspension of use and access is not a breach of this Agreement. You acknowledge that the preservation of security, confidentiality and data is paramount. Provider has no liability to you for suspending the Services under this provision.
This section does not apply to Content; however you agree that any ideas, suggestions, concepts, processes or techniques which you provide to Provider related to the Services, the Site or Provider or its business (“Feedback”) are and will be Provider’s exclusive property without any compensation or other consideration payable to you by Provider, and you do so of your own free will and volition. Provider may or may not, in its sole discretion, use or incorporate the Feedback in whatever form or derivative Provider may decide into the Site, the Services, its software, documentation, business or other products or services, or any future versions or derivatives of the foregoing. You hereby assign all rights on a worldwide basis in perpetuity to Provider in any Feedback and, as applicable, waive any moral rights.
Provider retains the right to use or share any Aggregated Data generated by anyone using the Site or the Services, including our users, for the purpose of enhancing and providing the Services. “Aggregated Data” means data that does not contain personal information and which has been manipulated or combined to provide generalized, anonymous information. You are still responsible for any and all personal information that is part of any Content (as defined below).
Your Profile Information and Account
If you sign up for a Provider account (“Account”), you agree that Provider is providing you with one user identification reference that you will use to create a username and password (together, the “User ID”) to the extent, and only to the extent, necessary to access and use the Site and Services in accordance with this Agreement. You agree and understand that you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User ID. That User ID, together with any or other user information you provide, including but not limited to your social media profiles and location, will form your “Profile Information” and allow you to access your Account. You will provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself, and you agree not to misrepresent your Profile Information. You represent and warrant to Provider that you have not misrepresented any Profile Information. You are responsible for any Profile Information that may be lost or unrecoverable through the use of the Site or Services.
Your right to access and use the Services is personal to you and is not transferable by you to any other person or entity. You agree not to disclose your User ID to any third party. You are solely responsible for all activities that occur under your Account or under your Profile Information. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Account or Profile Information, you are responsible for notifying Provider immediately. It is your responsibility to update or change any Account or Profile Information, as appropriate.
For paid Accounts (each, a “Paid Account”), Provider deems the person under whose name appears on the credit or charge card that pays the charges for the Services to be the owner and controller of the User ID, Profile Information and Paid Account for all purposes under this Agreement. If a corporate or other organization’s name appears on the credit or charge card, that corporation or organization is deemed to be the owner. If any dispute arises as to who owns or controls a User ID, Profile Information or Paid Account, the credit or charge card will continue to be charged and you will be responsible to pay for the Services until Provider receives written confirmation from the Paid Account email address confirming a change in ownership and control of the Paid Account.
In the case of any newsletter or other marketing initiatives, you can withdraw your consent to receiving those communications and unsubscribe to any Provider subscriptions at any time by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of such communication or by contacting email@example.com. Doing so may have a material impact on our ability to provide any Services to you, and we are not responsible if you do so.
Fees and Renewals
Current pricing for a Paid Account is available at getwalter.com/pricing. Unless otherwise agreed to by Provider, fees for a Paid Account will be billed in advance for each year and are non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service or for periods in which your Paid Account remains open but you do not use the Services.
We reserve the right to modify our billing rates at any time upon 30 days written notice by posting such fee changes to the Site or through email notification to you. You will be liable to pay such modified billing rates.
Term and Renewal
Subject to your payment of applicable fees for a Paid Account, we will provide the Services to you for the period of time that you have paid for such Services (the “Subscription Period”).
At the end of the Subscription Period, your Paid Account subscription will automatically renew for an additional Subscription Period until explicitly cancelled by you as described in the “Cancellation and Termination” section below.
If you purchase any fee-based Services, you agree that Provider, or our third party service providers, may store your credit or charge card information. You expressly agree that we are authorized to charge you (i) a fee for any applicable Services for which you have subscribed, billed on a basis of the Subscription Period, (ii) any other fees for Services you may purchase, (iii) any charges for use of the Services in excess of the usage or other limits placed on your use of the Services (and you hereby consent to such charges and agree we are not required to notify you of any such charge in advance) and (iv) any applicable taxes in connection with your use of the Services to the credit or charge card you provide and to reimburse us for all collection costs and interest for any overdue amounts. If the credit or charge card you provide expires and you do not provide new credit or charge card information or cancel your account, you authorize us to continue billing you and you agree to remain responsible for any uncollected fees.
From time to time and at our sole discretion, we may offer free or discounted pricing for you to evaluate the use of the current Services that are generally available to customers for a limited period of time (the “Trial Program”). If you register for a Trial Program, you must decide to purchase the Services within the term of the Trial Program specified by us (the “Trial Period”) in order to continue to use the Services or retain any Content (as defined below) that you have posted or uploaded during the Trial Period. If you do not purchase the Services by the end of the Trial Period, the Services will be unavailable to you, although your Content will be available to you until the end of the trial period. Once the Trial Period has expired, you agree that our normal billing rates will apply. You agree to comply with any additional terms, restrictions or limitations (including limitations on the total amount of usage) we impose in connection with any Trial Program. You may not sign-up for multiple Accounts in order to receive additional benefits under any Trial Programs. We may terminate or suspend any Trial Program at any time without notice or liability and in our sole discretion. We reserve the right to charge or charge more for any Service or product offered through any Trial Program.
You take full responsibility for all taxes and fees of any nature associated with the Services, including any sales tax related to any purchase or sale of services or goods under this Agreement. When purchasing or selling services or goods under this Agreement, it is your responsibility to determine whether or not sales taxes apply to a transaction and to collect, report and remit the correct amounts to the appropriate authority. Any tools provided as Materials or in connection with the Services indicating estimated taxes due are for illustration purposes only. You take full responsibility for all taxes and fees of any nature associated with the Services, including any sales tax related to the purchase or sale of services or goods under this Agreement.

The Site and the Services available thereon enable you to provide or upload content, including but not limited to messages, materials, data, text, music, sound, photos, videos, graphics, applications, code and other information or content (collectively, “Content”), to Provider for the purpose of providing the Services or as otherwise permitted under this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for all Content you submit, provide or upload and the consequences for submitting, providing or uploading it.
Provider will use Content you upload solely in connection with providing the Services to you, and for no other reason. You agree that by uploading, or otherwise providing any Content on or through the Site and/or the Services, you grant to Provider a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, process, display, all or any portion of such Content, solely in connection with providing the Services to you. This license includes the right to host, index, cache or otherwise format your Content in order to provide the Services.
