The Canadian Technology Fast 50TM is a Deloitte program for public and private technology companies who've demonstrated ability to innovate and sustain growth. The program ranks the fastest-growing Canadian tech companies based on percentage revenue growth over a four-year period. Promising, younger companies are eligible to apply for the Companies-to-Watch awards. Deloitte also nominates outstanding companies to the Fast 50TM Leadership awards.
What we collect
Candidates who meet the basic eligibility requirements are invited to complete an application, and may be asked to provide additional information through forms and interviews. During the application and evaluation process, we generally collect business contact information and corporate information, which may include confidential financial and research and development information. We collect this information from you and from other sources. Where we wish to collect additional information about any individual personally from another source, we will ask for permission first. CEOs who choose to participate in the CEO survey submit a business profile, which captures a range of information including gender and details of professional and educational background.
How we use your information
Information is used to evaluate candidates and administer the Canadian Technology Fast 50TM awards program. Candidates are evaluated by Deloitte and its Canadian Technology Fast 50TM sponsors according to the published awards criteria. Program winners are publicly announced once finalized by a panel of industry leaders and, if you choose, are entered into the North American Technology Fast 500TM, the awards program that recognizes growing technology companies in Canada and the United States. Unless otherwise requested, candidate information is shared with sponsors and is retained by Deloitte to identify services, information and events we believe will interest you. Deloitte does not sell its mailing lists.
How we protect your information
The Canadian Technology Fast 50TM recognizes the importance of protecting candidates' personal and confidential business information, and takes steps to protect it. These include password-protecting applications submitted over the internet and a variety of technological, organizational and contractual measures to limit access and use by Deloitte, its program sponsors and industry experts, as well as third parties that support administration of the Canadian Technology Fast 50TM program.
Please note that forwarding Fast 50TM email communications may generate identifying information about the recipient to Deloitte, although Deloitte does not use the information for any purpose.
We respect your choices
When you're invited to apply to the Canadian Technology Fast 50TM program, this is generally because our records indicate you have given us your permission. From time to time Deloitte sends invitations to individuals identified through third parties, such as list providers. Where we do, we take steps to ensure this is authorized. Please contact us if you wish to review or update your personal information, remove your name from our mailing lists, or inquire or complain about our privacy practices.
