We may share your personal information with our service providers and our corporate affiliates that help us with our business operations. For additional information, please see our list of sub-processors at: https://www.hrsg.ca/dpa-subprocessors.
Service Providers. We use third-party service providers or affiliates who provide us with marketing, promotional and other business services (such as customer relationship management capabilities or payment processing) and who help us with providing our website and online services to you (such as hosting and email distribution services). If a service provider or affiliate needs to access information about you to perform services on our behalf, they do so under close instruction from us, including policies and procedures designed to protect your personal information.
Compliance and Enforcement: We may disclose personal information to a third party where we reasonably believe that the sharing of the personal information is necessary to (a) comply with applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental requests (for example, in response to subpoenas, civil investigative demands, or similar processes, or in connection with know-your customer requirements or for export and economic sanctions-related compliance); (b) enforce our agreements, policies, and/or Terms of Service; (c) protect the security of our website and/or the online services and/or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues; or (d) prevent damage to property, bodily injury and/or death.
Merger or Sale. We may transfer any personal information we have about you in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of our business. The foregoing disclosures of personal information include for due diligence activities in connection with a merger or sale involving all or part of our business. We may also disclose your personal information if it is necessary for us to collect a debt from you or where we have reason to believe that it is relevant to the investigation or decision to investigate a breach of the laws of Canada, a province or territory of Canada, or a foreign jurisdiction, and we are legally permitted to do so.
Other Users. We may also share your personal information with other users of our online services. You may provide content that can be shared with other users as part of the intended uses of the online services. Depending on the capabilities of the online services used by you and your organization, this may include content that you have granted permission for other users to see, like your picture for the purpose of identifying you to other users, personal logs shared with a manager or other specified employee, or your name and position associated with a job in the career path capabilities provided by the online services. Where registration is done on your behalf by an administrator designated by your organization, information about you, including your Account Information and employment details are accessible by that administrator. Your comments provided in an area accessible by both you and another user or other users will appear to that other user or those other users without you having to grant express permission.
We take administrative, technical, and physical measures to safeguard your personal information against unauthorized access, unauthorized disclosure, theft, and misuse. These measures include confidentiality agreements with employees and contractors, firewalls, Secure Sockets Layer protocol, usernames, and passwords. We take physical precautions to ensure that the computer servers on which your personal information is stored and archived are secure and that access to such servers is protected.
Although we take precautions against possible breaches of our security systems, no company can fully eliminate the risks of unauthorized access to your personal information and no website or online service is completely secure. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss or breaches of our security systems will never occur. Accordingly, you should not transmit personal information to us using our website or online services if you consider that information to be sensitive.
Your personal information may be used or stored by us or our service providers and our corporate affiliates outside of Canada. We require that our service providers and corporate affiliates safeguard your personal information. You acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be accessible to law enforcement and governmental agencies in Canada and the United States and other jurisdictions under lawful access regimes or court orders. For the location of the various sub-processors used by us, please see our list of sub-processors at: https://www.hrsg.ca/dpa-subprocessors. For individuals in the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom or Switzerland, we will only transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction not providing adequate protection for personal information in accordance with applicable European Economic Area, United Kingdom or Swiss law.
If you are resident of the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom or Switzerland, you have several important rights free of charge, however, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive, or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. Your requests may be limited in certain cases. For example, where fulfilling your request would reveal information about another person, or where you ask to delete information which we or your employer are permitted by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep. If you have unresolved concerns, you may have the right to complain to a data protection authority in the country where you live, where you work or where you feel your rights were infringed.
In summary, those include rights as follows:
Subject to the provisions below about processing done on behalf of your employer, if you would like to exercise any of the foregoing rights, please email, call, or write to us at the contact information indicated below and provide us with information confirming your identity and let us know what personal data your request pertains to.
If you are resident in California, you may have certain rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”).
For more details about the personal information we have collected about you over the last twelve (12) months, please see the “Personal information that We Collect” section above. We collect this personal information for the commercial purposes described above. We do not sell (as that term is defined in the CCPA) the personal information we collect.
Subject to applicability and certain limitations, the CCPA provides California consumers the right to request details about the categories or specific pieces of personal information we collect about them (including how we use and disclose this personal information), to delete their personal information, to opt out of any “sales” of personal information that may be occurring, and to not be discriminated against for exercising these rights.
