- Analyze how our Services are used so that we can improve them to engage and retain users
- Diagnose problems and/or prevent fraudulent activities

In certain exceptional cases, we may be legally permitted under applicable law to process your information without your consent, including, for example:
- If the collection is clearly in the interests of an individual and consent cannot be obtained in a timely manner
- For investigation, detection and prevention of fraud
- For commercial transactions provided certain conditions are met
- If contained in a witness statement and the collection is necessary to assess, process or settle an insurance claim
- To identify injured, ill or deceased persons and contact next of kin
- If we have reasonable grounds to believe that an individual has been, is being or may be financially exploited
- If the collection and use with consent could reasonably be expected to compromise the availability or accuracy of the information and the collection is reasonable for purposes related to investigating a breach of an agreement or a contravention of the laws of Canada or a province
- If disclosure is necessary to comply with a subpoena, warrant, court order or court rules relating to the production of documents
- If it was generated by an individual in the course of his or her employment, business or profession and the collection is consistent with the purpose for which the information was generated
- If the collection is solely for journalistic, artistic or literary purposes
- If the information is publicly available and is specified by regulation
When and with whom do we share your personal information?
Third party suppliers, consultants and other service providers. We may share your data with third party vendors, service providers, contractors or agents (“third parties”) who perform services for us or on our behalf and who need access to this information to perform this work. We have contracts in place with our third parties that are designed to help protect your personal information. This means that they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have asked them to do so. They will also not share your personal information with any organization other than us. They also agree to protect the data they hold on our behalf and to keep it for the length of time we request. The categories of third parties with whom we may share personal information are as follows:

- Payment processors (e.g. Stripes)

How do we manage your social connections?
Our Services provide you with the ability to register and log in using your third-party social media account details (such as your Facebook or Twitter credentials). When you choose to do so, we will receive certain profile information about you from your social media provider. The profile information we receive may vary depending on the particular social media provider, but will often include your name, email address, list of friends and profile picture, as well as other information you choose to make public on such social media platform.
We will use the information we receive only for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice or otherwise specified to you on the relevant Services. Please note that we do not control and are not responsible for any other uses of your personal information by your third-party social media provider. We recommend that you review their privacy notice to understand how they collect, use and share your personal information, and how you can set your privacy preferences on their sites and applications.
Is your information transferred internationally?
Our servers are located in Canada and the United States. If you access our services from outside Canada and the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored and processed by us at our facilities and by third parties with whom we may share your personal information (see ” When and with whom do we share your personal information? The Company is not responsible for the content of its products (e.g., the products in the “above” category), in Canada, the United States and other countries.
If you reside in the European Economic Area (EEA) or the United Kingdom (UK), these countries may not have data protection or similar laws that are as comprehensive as those in your country. However, we will take all necessary steps to protect your personal information in accordance with this privacy notice and applicable law.
How long do we keep your information?
We will retain your personal information only as long as necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other requirements). No purpose of this notice will require us to retain your personal information for more than three (3) months after the termination of the user’s account.
When we no longer have a legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will delete or anonymize that information, or, if that is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in a backup archive), securely store your personal information and isolate it from further processing until deletion is possible.
How do we keep your information secure?
We have implemented appropriate and reasonable technical and organizational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, despite our safeguards and efforts to secure your information, no electronic transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot promise or guarantee that hackers, cybercriminals, or other unauthorized third parties will not be able to defeat our security and improperly collect, access, steal, or modify your information. While we do our best to protect your personal information, the transmission of personal information to and from our Services is at your own risk. You should only access the Services in a secure environment.
Do we collect information from minors?
We do not knowingly collect data and our Services do not target children under the age of 18. By using the Services, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age or the parent or guardian of such a minor and consent to the use of the Services by such dependent minor. If we learn that personal information of users under the age of 18 has been collected, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable steps to promptly delete such data from our records. If you become aware of any data we may have collected from children under the age of 18, please contact us at email@example.com.

Commands for the functions do not follow
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and applications include a “Do-Not-Track” (“DNT”) feature or setting that you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data monitored and collected about your online browsing activities. At this stage, no uniform technology standard for the recognition and implementation of DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If an online tracking standard is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will notify you of that practice in a revised version of this privacy notice.
Do we make any updates to this notice?
