Personal Information We Collect
“Personal information” means information about an identifiable individual as described under applicable privacy laws.
We may collect, use, and disclose different types of personal information, depending on our relationship with you. Generally, we collect the following types of personal information (not all of which may apply to you):
- name and contact information
- personal information contained in your correspondence with us or that you chose to share with us
We also collect, use, and share aggregated and anonymized data for any purpose. Aggregated and anonymized data is not considered personal information because it cannot be used to identify you.
How We Use Your Personal Information
We generally use your personal information for the following purposes:
- to respond to your inquiries or requests
- to communicate with you about business opportunities or collaborations
- for such other purposes as you may consent to from time to time
- as otherwise required or permitted by law.
How We Share Your Personal Information
We generally only disclose your personal information with your consent – or as required or permitted by law. In addition, we may disclose your personal information to a third party in the event of any significant business transaction, such as a merger or reorganization.
We rely on service providers to perform a variety of services on our behalf, such as technical support providers and data storage and processing service providers. If we transfer your personal information to a service provider, we require that they maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and keep it secure. We also require that our service providers comply with applicable privacy laws and only use your personal information for the limited purposes for which it is provided.
Your Consent to the Collection, Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information
We collect, use, and disclose your personal information with your consent or as permitted or required by law. How we obtain your consent, including whether it is express or implied, will depend on the circumstances and the sensitivity of the personal information in question. Generally, we will seek your consent at the time we collect your personal information, either orally, electronically, or in writing.
If you provide personal information about another individual to us, it is your responsibility to obtain the consent of that individual to enable us to collect, use and disclose their information as described in this Privacy Statement.
If you wish to withdraw your consent to our collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information, please contact us using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below. We will accommodate your request to withdraw consent, subject to legal or contractual restrictions. Withdrawal of your consent may limit our ability to communicate with you or to engage in business activities with you.
Retention, Storage, and International Transfer of Personal Information
We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, and as permitted or required by law.
We may use and retain your personal information in the United States and Canada to fulfil the purpose for which we collected it, including for processing and storage by service providers. While your personal information is in the United States or Canada, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is located, which may have different data protection laws than your country of residence. Those laws may require disclosure of your personal information to authorities in that country.
We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual, and technological security measures in an effort to protect your personal information from loss or theft, unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.
Despite these measures, we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will always be effective. A breach of security safeguards can result in such risks as phishing and identity theft. In such cases, we will act promptly to mitigate the risks and to inform you where there is a real risk of significant harm, or as otherwise required by law.
If you have reason to believe that your personal information is no longer secure, please contact us immediately using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information
We expect you to supply us with updates to your personal information, when required. We will not routinely update your personal information unless such a process is necessary.
You may make a request to review any personal information about you that we have collected, used, or disclosed, and we will provide you with any such personal information to the extent required by applicable laws.
You may also challenge the accuracy or completeness of your personal information in our records. If you demonstrate that your personal information in our records is inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend your personal information as required.
We may require that you provide sufficient identification to fulfill your request to access or correct your personal information. Any such identifying information will be used only for this purpose. We will not charge you any fees to access your personal information in our records without first providing you with an estimate of the approximate fees, if any.
If you object to how we handle your request, you may have the right to make a complaint to the applicable privacy commissioner or similar privacy regulator.
Third-Party Websites and Services
We may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. Those other websites, products, or services are governed by the privacy statements and policies of the respective third party. This Privacy Statement does not extend to any websites, products, or services provided by third parties. We do not assume responsibility for the privacy practices of third parties and we encourage you to review all third-party privacy statements prior to using third-party websites, products, or services.
