Collection of Information

Latitude Geographics collects personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address, only if you provide this information to us voluntarily. Latitude Geographics is committed to complying with CASL and other privacy laws governing the protection of your personal information, including your email address.

The voluntary information we collect is used to complete transactions; ensure appropriate legal use of licensed Latitude Geographics software; provide notification to licensees about updates to Latitude Geographics’ and our affiliates' software, data, and services; and help provide technical and product support to our users. Where appropriate, Latitude Geographics may pass this data to a Geocortex Reseller that provides the above services in your country, or to a Latitude Geographics affiliate or vendor whose software, data, and services are used to meet your needs or process transactions. Our affiliates and vendors are also committed to protecting personally identifiable information as described in their privacy statements/policies.

Latitude Geographics websites and software installation may require registration to gain access to special services, authorization codes, license keys, or other features. This information will be used to provide support and deliver specialized services.

Latitude Geographics may also collect personally identifiable information you voluntarily provide when you order and register software, data, or services; enter contests; order newsletters; register for training or conferences; or make requests that require a direct response to you.

While browsing the Latitude Geographics website, you may be able to access the websites of our affiliates and third parties through a hyperlink. Latitude Geographics assumes no responsibility for the privacy practices of third parties' websites and suggests you review the privacy statements/policies on such websites before sharing your personally identifiable data.

Latitude Geographics' website uses third-party web analytics services that collect and aggregate web surfing data. The services do not collect personally identifiable information that you do not voluntarily enter in Latitude Geographics' website and do not track your browsing habits across websites that do not use the services.

Release of Personal Information

Other than as described in this Privacy Policy, Latitude Geographics will not disclose or authorize others to disclose your personally identifiable information unless required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to legal requirements or prevent fraud or imminent harm, (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Latitude Geographics, or (3) as part of a transfer of assets to a successor in interest.

Except as stated, Latitude Geographics does not rent, sell, or otherwise share personally identifiable information.

Latitude Geographics will take reasonable and prudent precautions to ensure that your personally identifiable data is protected against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. While Latitude Geographics strives to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Latitude Geographics, and you do so at your own risk.


If you believe for any reason that Latitude Geographics has not followed these principles, please contact us, and Latitude Geographics will act promptly to investigate, correct as appropriate, and advise you of the correction. Please identify the issue as a Privacy Policy concern in your communication to Latitude Geographics.
