Important Notice: PetroFeed, Inc. and its related companies (collectively, "PetroFeed", "us", "our" or "we") consider matters relating to the protection of personal information and privacy to be extremely important.

By providing personal information to us and by dealing with PetroFeed, including through use of our website at Tether.id and our mobile apps and other software (the website and apps and other software are collectively called, the "Electronic Services"), you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Definitions

In this Privacy Policy, the following term has the following meaning:

  • "personal information" means information about you as an identifiable individual. Personal information does not include information that cannot be attributed to you. For example, information of an aggregate or anonymous nature is not personal information under this Privacy Policy and, therefore, is not subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Choosing to Provide Personal Information

In using the Electronic Services and in dealing with us you will have the ability to control the amount of personal information you are providing and therefore you may restrict the disclosure of your personal information by not providing your personal information through the Electronic Services.

Consent

When we collect, use or disclose your personal information we will generally obtain your consent. Your consent may be explicit or implied and you may give consent orally or in writing, depending on the circumstances. In particular, if the use or disclosure of your personal information would be fairly obvious at the time of collection we will not obtain your explicit consent to that use or disclosure. In those circumstances, your consent will be implied.

Most of the time, we will obtain your consent before or at the same time we collect your personal information. In some instances, however, we may seek your consent after we have collected your personal information if we wish to make an additional use or disclosure of your personal information where we do not already have your consent for that new use or disclosure.

Privacy Policy as a Means of Consent

Certain collection, uses and disclosures that we wish to make of your personal information are specifically set out in this Privacy Policy. Be sure to review this Privacy Policy since by providing your personal information to us we will assume that you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Changing Consent

You may change or withdraw your consent at any time on reasonable notice, subject to pre-existing legal and contractual obligations, by contacting our Privacy Officer as set out below. However, if you withdraw certain consents, it may limit the manner in which you can make use of PetroFeed's services, including the Electronic Services, or otherwise interact with PetroFeed. Also, your ability to change or withdraw consent is not absolute. PetroFeed reserves the right to continue handling your personal information in those circumstances required or permitted by law despite a change or withdrawal of consent.

Collection

Where practical, we will try to collect personal information directly from you. Occasionally, we may need to collect personal information from other sources. In those circumstances, when required by law, we will have those third parties verify that they have obtained your consent to disclose that personal information to PetroFeed.

Set out below are certain circumstances where we may collect your personal information without obtaining your further consent:

  • your employer may have one of its employees input your personal information onto our systems;
  • professional certifications you upload will be stored on our systems;
  • information that you provide through the Electronic Services, when requesting our goods or services, when requesting information about PetroFeed or when you report a problem to us;
  • any messaging activity occurring on our through our systems; and
  • If you check-in at a worksite, that fact and the location and time will be stored on our systems.

Use

Set out below are certain circumstances where we may use your personal information without obtaining your further consent:

  • in connection with any use of our services, we may process, transfer, store and archive your personal information including your messaging, your work certifications, your corporate relationships and work locations.
  • When you check-in to a worksite, certain of your personal information may be processed at that time, including whether or not you have the required certifications to be at that location.
  • using identification information and contact information, such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address to provide information about PetroFeed when you request that information;
  • using identification information and contact information, such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address so that we can identify you and communicate with you in connection with our operations;
  • using customer and/or supplier relationship information such as your service requests, instructions, comments and feedback to assist us in delivering services in accordance with your wishes; and
  • using personal information for the purpose for which it was provided and certain other activities that are reasonably ancillary to that purpose. For example, if we think there may be an error in the personal information contained in one of records we may use your contact information to contact you regarding that error.

Disclosure

Set out below are certain circumstances where we may disclose your personal information without obtaining your further consent. These are:

  • If you choose to join corporate network accounts, then certain third party individuals, such as administrators of those corporate networks, of may have access to your personal information including your work certifications, your contact information and check-in history that makes up your work history, while you are logged in under that corporate network.
  • Certain other individuals, such as worksite administrators or administrators of corporate networks you don’t belong to, but with whom you’ve elected to share specific personal information, such as work certifications, will have access to the information you’ve shared, even after you’ve stopped sharing with them. The personal information the viewer will have access to will be the most recent version of your shared information for the time period you shared. This means if you stop sharing certain information, the system will stop updating that information for that viewer, but the record of your information that has already been transferred will continue to be available to that viewer, which will help that viewer to meet future legal and safety obligations;
  • In the event PetroFeed transfers or is considering transferring control of any or all of its operations or assets to another organization, PetroFeed reserves the right to transfer and/or disclose your personal information to that organization. However, PetroFeed will require that organization to agree to be similarly bound by the provisions of this Privacy Policy and to agree that it will only use and disclose your personal information as PetroFeed is similarly entitled to under this Privacy Policy; and
  • PetroFeed may work with other organizations towards some common purpose consistent with the objectives of PetroFeed. In that case, it may be necessary for PetroFeed to disclose your personal information to these organizations. However, PetroFeed will require each such organization to agree that it will only use and disclose your personal information as necessary for the common purpose and that each will adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Employer/Employee or Company/Contractor

Much of the personal information PetroFeed collects, uses, and discloses about you in connection with its services relates to your activities as an employee or contractor of your company. As set out above, your company's right to access that personal information is governed, in part, by your employer/employee or company/contractor relationship with your company.

Service Providers

PetroFeed may engage certain service providers. Those service providers may provide services to PetroFeed to assist PetroFeed in its activities. Other service providers may provide services directly to you at the request of PetroFeed. As such, it may be necessary for PetroFeed to disclose your personal information to these service providers. PetroFeed will take steps to ensure that these service providers will only use and disclose your personal information as necessary to provide their services and that they will adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy. As well, some of these service providers may assist PetroFeed in the collection of your personal information. PetroFeed will ensure that they will not use or disclose your personal information for any other purpose and that they will adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

As well, we may collect, use, and disclose your personal information without your knowledge or consent when that personal information is relevant to an actual or potential legal proceeding or when we are required or permitted to do so by court order, applicable law or regulatory requirements.
