To whom do we disclose your personal information?
Third Party Service Providers.
In providing our Website, we may use third-party service providers to help perform administrative functions such as database management, analytics or for assisting us in understanding how our Website is used. Service providers have access to your personal information only to perform their tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Some of these third-party service providers may be located outside Canada in jurisdictions with less stringent privacy-preserving laws and regulations. As a result of transfer outside Canada, your personal information will be subject to foreign laws which may not be as protective as Canadian law, and may be accessible to law enforcement, courts and regulatory authorities in accordance with the laws of these foreign jurisdictions.
Sale or Change of Control
In the event of a sale, assignment, or other transfer of all or a portion of our business or assets, information we have about you may be transferred or disclosed to a purchaser or prospective purchaser. Should such a transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to ensure that the transferee uses your information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy unless otherwise permitted or required by applicable law.
Just as any other business, we may be compelled to share your information with a court of law or other person(s) or entity/entities with jurisdiction to compel production of such information.
We may also disclose your personal information in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
Protect and defend our rights or property
Prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Website
Protect the personal safety of users of the Website or the public
Protect against legal liability
Where do we store and how do we safeguard your information?
The information that we have collected from you is stored in Canada, on an encrypted cloud service.
We also take appropriate technical, physical and organizational security measures to protect personal information in our custody and control against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure, destruction and damage. These measure include using industry standard and commercially reasonable security practices, provide employee access only on a “need to know” basis and train our staff on privacy requirements and procedures.
Despite these measures, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our system or database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. Any transmission of information by you to us is at your own risk.
Third party links
We may provide links to third-party websites. These links are provided as a matter of convenience only and are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. As we do not own or control these websites, we have no responsibility or liability for the manner in which these websites or organizations that operate such linked websites may collect, use or disclose, secure and otherwise manage your personal information.
Except as provided in this policy, we will not give your personal information to these third parties without your consent.
