If you choose, you may voluntarily provide personal information, but it is not required. Any personal information provided will be subject to the privacy policy below.

Privacy Statement

Our Privacy Statement has changed. We now use cookies for accessibility and personalization when you browse our Web Sites, as outlined in more detail in the "Cookies" section of our Privacy Statement. We have also made changes to the second last paragraph under, "How will Pearson use and disclose the personal information we collect?" to address changes to our use of service providers located outside of Canada.


This Privacy Statement applies to Pearson Canada Inc. (referred to as "Pearson", "we", "us" or "our" in this Privacy Statement) in the course of our business in Canada. This Privacy Statement is designed to tell individuals with whom we may interact in the course of our business in Canada, including individuals who purchase our products, (referred to as "you" or "your" in this Privacy Statement) about our practices regarding collection, use and disclosure of your personal information, including information you provide over the telephone, by mail, email or facsimile and via our Web Sites. This Privacy Statement applies to the Web Sites that Pearson maintains that post or include a link to this Privacy Statement (the "Web Sites"). This Privacy Statement does not apply to personal information about our employees or information that is not personal information.

What personal information will Pearson collect?

Pearson collects personal information from you that you provide to us voluntarily. Such personal information may include: personal contact information, such as name, address, and telephone number; your personally identifiable comments and questions about our products and services; and information required to order our products and services (including credit card information).

Pearson collects personal information about its guests and visitors. Specifically, visitors to Pearson's offices may be asked to provide their name, telephone number, and organization name. Pearson collects this information for premises security and disaster preparedness purposes. Pearson has installed video cameras in certain areas on its premises. Signs are posted notifying individuals of the existence and purpose of any such cameras.

In some cases, we may collect information about you that is not personal information. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet Browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using and the domain name of the web site from which you linked to our Web Sites. If that material is not linked to other information that is "personal information" about you, the non–personal information is not subject to this Privacy Policy.

If we obtain personal information from third parties, for example to send promotional mailings, we seek assurances that the provider has received consent to provide that information to us.

In addition, please remember that any personal information that is voluntarily posted to any public area of the Web Sites - such as a chat room - may always be accessible to other visitors and that there is nothing Pearson can do to prevent collection, use or disclosure of this information by those visitors.

If you apply for a position at Pearson, we will collect the personal information contained in, and generated in relation to, your application, in order to evaluate your application and assess whether to offer you a position at Pearson. For candidates who are not offered or do not accept a position, we normally retain this information for a reasonable time, in the event that an appropriate position becomes available or that you re-apply to Pearson, unless you ask us not to retain this information and there is no legal requirement that we retain it. If you accept a position at Pearson, the information will be retained in accordance with our privacy procedures applicable to the personal information of employees of Pearson.

In relation to potential employees, in addition to personal information that you provide, we may collect personal information from:

  • the third parties you provide as references in support of your application; and
  • individuals involved in the evaluation and review process.

How will Pearson use and disclose the personal information we collect?

We use and disclose this personal information for the following purposes:

  1. (a) to fulfill your orders, to process payments (including by credit card) and to collect amounts you owe;
  2. (b) to respond to your requests for information and service and to communicate with you;
  3. (c) to carry out internal financial processes including to credit our sales representatives;
  4. (d) for internal research to better understand your needs and ways in which we can improve our products, services and Web Sites;
  5. (e) to manage and administer our business;
  6. (f) to send product information and special offers, including sample texts sent to educators, that we think may be of interest to you; in support of joint marketing and promotion activities with related entities, and to permit those related entities to send information or offers regarding their products and services to you, in each case if you have provided your consent to receiving such materials; and
  7. (g) to enforce our Terms of Use and Terms of Sale and other agreements and for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

We may also use or disclose your personal information for other purposes with your consent or as permitted or required by law.

We sometimes transfer personal information to others, including to affiliated entities or unrelated companies ("service providers"), that carry out certain functions on our behalf such as order fulfillment, accounts receivable and data processing. In those cases we require those service providers not to use or disclose your personal information for any purpose other than as directed by Pearson. Some of these service providers may be located outside of Canada, including in the United States, the United Kingdom and India, and your personal information may be collected, used, disclosed, stored and processed in those jurisdictions for the purposes described in this Privacy Statement. We take reasonable contractual or other measures to protect your personal information while processed or handled by these service providers. If your personal information is located outside Canada it will be subject to legal requirements in those foreign countries applicable to our service providers, for example, lawful requirements to disclose personal information to government authorities in those countries.

Your personal information may be used by Pearson and shared with others connected with the contemplated or actual financing, insuring, sale, assignment or other disposal of all or part of Pearson's business or assets, including for the purposes of permitting such parties to determine whether to proceed with such transaction or business relationship, or to fulfill any disclosure obligations we have to such parties. If we do sell or assign all or part of our business, the purchaser or assignee will be able to use and disclose personal information to the same extent, under the same conditions and for substantially the same purposes as Pearson, as described in this Privacy Statement.

Your consent

Your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information may be given in various ways. Consent can be express (express consent may be oral, in writing or electronic), implied (such as when you provide your name and address in order for us to send you products you have ordered or information you have requested) and in some jurisdictions may be given by your authorized representative (such as a legal guardian or a person having a power of attorney). Generally, if you provide us with your personal information, we will assume that you consent to our collection, use and disclosure of such information as described in this Privacy Statement, if applicable, or otherwise at the time of collection.

Collection, Use or Disclosure Without Your Consent

In certain limited circumstances our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information without consent is permitted or required by law, for example, to collect a debt you owe to us or to comply with a subpoena or court order.

What if I do not want my personal information collected, used or disclosed?

If you do not want your personal information collected, used or disclosed by us, please do one of the following: 1) follow the procedures, where available, indicated at the point of collection such as to "opt out" from the particular purposes of use and disclosure, or 2) if no "opt out" is available, do not submit personal information to us if you do not want us to collect, use or disclose it. If you have submitted personal information and later wish to withdraw your consent to its retention, use or disclosure, please contact us as indicated below. You may withdraw your consent, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice.

Please understand that without your consent, we may not be able to provide certain goods or services to you. For example, if you do not provide consent to collect and use personal information necessary to process an order that you wish to place, or if you withdraw your consent to uses that are necessary to fulfill your request, we may not be able to process your order or to supply those products to you. We will endeavour to advise you if this should happen.


We will protect your personal information using physical, electronic or managerial procedures designed to protect the integrity, security and appropriate use of your personal information and to prevent theft, loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. Authorized employees, agents and mandataries of Pearson who require the personal information to fulfil the purpose for which the information was collected will be permitted to access personal information. We will retain your personal information as is required for these purposes, subject to reasonable legal limitation periods and statutory or regulatory retention requirements and our document retention policies.

Although we have enacted security measures for our Web Sites, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of our Web Sites or the security of information that you submit (or that we send to you) over the Internet, since no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error–free. Your use of the Internet and electronic mail is at your own risk. You should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e–mail or posting on the Pearson Web Sites.

Our Links to Other Web Sites:

The Pearson Web Sites may contain links or references to other web sites to which this Privacy Statement does not apply. Pearson is not responsible for the data collection and use practices of companies or organizations to which the Pearson Web Sites may provide links. We encourage you to read the Privacy Policy of every web site you visit.


Our Web Sites use cookies. "Cookies" are small files containing information that a web site creates when someone visits the site. Generally your browser can be set to reject cookies or to notify you when receiving a cookie. Some features of our Web Sites may not be available if your browser is not set to accept cookies.

When you browse our Web Sites, we use cookies for accessibility and personalization. For example, these cookies allow our Web Sites to remember choices you make (such as your language preference or the region you are in) in order to provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies also remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other customizable parts of our Web Sites.

When you register on a Web Site or purchase products, Pearson may also use cookies to facilitate your registration profile or purchase.

We do not use cookies to track your browsing activity on other websites.

Special Notice To Parents

We have no intention of seeking personal information about minors who visit our Web Sites. If such information is collected, this Privacy Statement will apply to that information. In addition, if we can identify a user as a minor, the personal information will not be used for further marketing and promotion unless the minor’s guardian has consented. We encourage you to ask your children to seek your permission before providing information about themselves or their family over the Internet.

Special Notice To Children

Ask your parent or guardian for permission before you send any personal information over the Internet, including to our Web Sites.

Please print and keep a copy of this Subscription and End-User License Agreement ("Agreement"). Use of the Website constitutes acceptance of this Agreement. If you do not agree to abide by the terms and conditions of this Agreement, please do not become a Subscriber of a Pearson Education Website. Pearson Education may change any of the terms in this Agreement at any time. Changes will become effective when Pearson Education posts the modified Agreement on the Website. The Subscription and End-User License link will be flagged any time changes are posted. If you do not agree to the changes, you may cancel your subscription to the Website in the way described in Section 10. Continued use of this Website by you or any other subscriber under your license constitutes acceptance of the terms of the modified Agreement.

1. The Websites

Pearson Education offers on-line, World Wide Web-based subscription and non-subscription Websites. This document will refer to these sites collectively as "the Website". In the event of a conflict between these terms and conditions and more specific terms and conditions that apply to another Website of Pearson Education, the more specific terms and conditions of such other Website shall prevail with respect to such conflict.

2. Ownership of the Information, Materials and Software of the Website

You expressly acknowledge and agree that the Website contains information, text, software, photos, video, graphics, music, sounds and other material (called "Materials") that are protected by copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other proprietary rights (called "Intellectual Property Rights"), that these Intellectual Property Rights are valid and protected in all forms, media and technologies existing now or developed later, and that all right, title and interest in and to these Materials, including but not limited to all Intellectual Property Rights, belong solely and exclusively to Pearson Education or its licensors.

Pearson Education may change or discontinue any portion, feature or content of the Website at any time with or without notice to you. Likewise, Pearson Education may at any time, with or without notice to you, restrict the use and accessibility of the Website as well as limit the duration and amount of use made of the Website.

Pearson Education assumes no responsibility for any End-User Content (as described in Section 4) or any material outside of the Pearson Education Website which may be accessed through any hypertext or other computer "links". Some links on the Website lead to sites posted by independent site owners. Because Pearson Education has no control over these third party websites, Pearson Education is not responsible for such sites’ accessibility via the Internet and does not endorse products, services or information provided by such websites. As such, Pearson Education shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with, use or reliance on any content, goods or services available on or through any third party site. Further, the inclusion of these links does not imply that the other sites have given permission for inclusion of these links, or that there is any relationship between Pearson Education and the linked third party sites. Pearson Education is an independent operating company and reference to other companies does not imply any partnership, joint venture, or other legal connection where Pearson Education would be responsible for the actions of their respective owners.

Pearson Education subscription Websites require the use of internet browser cookies to facilitate subscription processing, and to validate user role (instructor, student, etc.) upon login. Unless otherwise noted, these cookies are session based and expire when the internet browser is shut down. Pearson does not share this information with third parties, nor does Pearson Education use it for any purpose other than facilitating the user experience.

7. Disclosure of Demographic and Personally Identifiable Information

7.2. Some activities within Website may request users to submit information that is tabulated and stored in a database. The data obtained is used to produce statistics that are integral to the educational value of these activities. Anywhere the requested data is personal in nature, a user’s specific responses remain confidential and are not associated with name or e-mail address in any way. In some activities where the data is not personal in nature, a user’s specific responses may be identified by e-mail address and accessed separate from the aggregate. By participating in an activity that uses a database, you are giving us consent to include your data in the study.

7.3. Pearson Education will not disclose personally identifiable information associated with your use of the Website (e.g., name, address, access code) to any third parties not affiliated with Pearson Education, except (1) for the limited purpose of investigating a good faith claim that a particular user has violated the Restrictions on Use in Section 5; or (2) where disclosure is requested by the educational institution in which the user is enrolled for educational or administrative purposes, such as evaluating student or instructor participation in the Website activities.

No statement, information or advice, including, but not limited to, statements regarding capacity, suitability for use or performance, whether made by a Pearson Education employee, reseller or other representative or otherwise, which is not contained in this agreement shall be deemed to be a warranty by Pearson Education for any purpose or give rise to any liability of Pearson Education whatsoever, and you agree that you will not rely on any such statement, information or advice.

11.3. Where Pearson Education is a distributor, rather than a publisher, of Materials accessible through the Website, Pearson Education exercises no more editorial control over such Materials than does a typical public library, bookstore or newsstand. The views and opinions expressed in such information do not necessarily reflect those of Pearson Education or its content providers or licensors. Neither Pearson Education nor its content providers or licensors make any warranties or representations regarding the accuracy, adequacy, truthfulness, completeness, or usefulness of such information.

12. Limitation of Liability


12.2. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, Pearson Education were to be held liable for damages, then regardless of the form of action (whether in contract, tort, breach of warranty or otherwise), in no event shall the maximum liability of Pearson Education and the parties described in the next sentence (Pearson Education’s "Related Parties") exceed, either jointly or severally, the aggregate dollar amount paid by you to Pearson Education in the twelve (12) months prior to the claimed injury or damage. All of the provisions of this section are also for the benefit of Pearson Education’s directors, officers, shareholders, employees, affiliates, agents, third-party content providers, licensors, and anyone else involved in creating, producing or distributing the Website, and each shall have the right to assert and enforce these provisions directly on their own behalf.

13. Indemnification by You

14. Compliance with United States Export Requirements

This Agreement and your use of the Website are subject to any laws, regulations, orders or other restrictions on export from the United States of America (which we will call the "U.S.") of certain materials and technical data which may be imposed from time to time by the U.S. Government. Therefore, you will not transfer, directly or indirectly, by electronic means or otherwise, any Website Content , or any direct products thereof, to any country, or to any agent, representative, or foreign national of any country, for which the U.S. Government or any agency thereof requires an export license or other governmental approval at the time of export without first obtaining such license or approval. Pursuant to current restrictions of the U.S. Government, nationals of Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea and Syria may not use or access the Website or Website Content at this time.
