Privacy Policy

  1. In harmony with our status as a Canadian consulting firm dedicated to creating meaningful, sustainable business and social value through corporate societal engagement and multi-stakeholder partnerships, Umalia does not track visitors to our site, which means we don’t use cookies, Google Analytics or any other tracking programs.
  2. However, as part of our effort to improve the socio-economic status of people worldwide through the creation of ethical, sustainable, grass-roots projects, we do connect to third party sites – such as YouTube, LinkedIn and Facebook – where we occasionally post updates to get word out about the positive impact of our projects.
  3. Those third party sites are not governed by Umalia’s Privacy Policy. You can read about their Privacy Policies on the sites in question to learn how they collect, use and/or share your information.
  4. On the Umalia homepage, we also have a link which reads, “Subscribe to Our Newsletter” which takes you to a “unambiguous consent” form that readers must fill out if they wish for us to notify them by email when we post a new edition of our Stimulus digital newsletter – no more than twice a year.
  5. “Unambiguous consent” is required under the European Union’s privacy law known as the General Data Privacy Regulations (GDPR), which came into force on May 25, 2018 in order to protect the privacy of E.U. citizens. Although Umalia is a Canadian company located in the Montreal area, it has opted to abide by the GDPR –which is tougher than either Canadian or U.S. privacy laws – due to our belief in the sanctity of the privacy rights of citizens worldwide.
  6. The “unambiguous consent” form – which needs to be filled out by readers who wish to be notified by us when a new edition of Stimulus is posted – is stored by MailChimp, which sends out, tracks and stores email notifications for our newsletter, much as it does for millions of other clients worldwide. The full Privacy Policy for MailChimp – which says it has “top-level digital and physical security in place to protect the personal information of email recipients” – can be found at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/
