07.  Do We Disclose Your Personal Information to Others?

We may share your personal information with our service providers and our corporate affiliates that help us with our business operations.

Service Providers. We use third-party service providers or affiliates who provide us with marketing and promotional services and help us with providing the Services to you. If a service provider 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 information.

Links to Third Party Sites. The Services may include links to other websites whose privacy practices we have no control over. If you submit Personal Information to any of those sites, your information is governed by the privacy policies belonging to those sites. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any website you visit.

Merger or Sale. We may transfer any 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.

08.  Protecting Your Personal Information

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 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 if you consider that information to be sensitive.

09.  Storage Outside of Canada

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.

10.  Your Rights

You have the right of access to your personal data and to other supplementary information, which this Notice is intended to address and the right to request correction to any mistakes in your information.

If you are a user who is a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) applies, you have several important rights free of charge. 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 administrator 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:

  • Right to Erasure. Request erasure/deletion of your personal data in certain circumstances
  • Data Portability. You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to a third party in certain situations.
  • Right to Object. At any time, you may object to processing of personal data concerning you for direct marketing and object in certain other situations to our continued processing of your personal data.
  • Right to Restrict Processing. In circumstances where you have objected to the processing of your personal information or if you need the data to make or defend a legal claim, you can request that any further processing of your personal data be restricted. When processing is successfully restricted, your organization still has the right to store the personal data.

If you would like to exercise any of those 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 information your request pertains to.
