5. How Do We Use Your Personal Data?

Under the Applicable law, we must always have a lawful basis for using personal data. This may be because the data is necessary for our provision of services to you and the performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data, or because it is in our legitimate business interests to use it. Your personal data may be used for one of the following purposes:

  1. Providing and managing your access to our platform;
  2. Supplying our products and services to you;
  3. Communicating with you;

7. How Long Will We Keep Your Personal Data?

We will keep your personal data for such a period as is required for us to provide services to you, or such a longer period as we may be required to process the data to ensure our compliance with all relevant laws and regulatory obligations to which we are subject.

8.How and Where Do We Store Your Personal Data?

Personal data is processed both manually and electronically and may be held in a number of different places in line with the operations of a typical business. The locations your personal data could be stored include, but are not limited to:

We have a framework of policies, procedures and training to cover information and cyber security, confidentiality and data protection.

9. Sharing and Transfer of Personal Data

We will only disclose personal data to third parties as is necessary to provide our services and/or to comply with your instructions. We may share your personal data with our affiliates and subsidiaries. We do not give or sell your personal information to third parties.

In addition, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.

If any of your personal data is required by a third-party, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, our obligations, and the third-party’s obligations under the law.

As some of our external third parties are based outside of Canada, the processing of your personal data may involve a transfer of data outside of Canada.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of Canada, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring that the country to which we transfer your personal data has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data.

We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information against loss, theft, and any form of unauthorized access. Only those who are authorized employees, agents, or representatives that require access to your personal information in order to fulfill their job requirements will have access to the information. Our obligations will become effective only when the information is received by us physically or by its internal systems, but not while it is in transmission out of or to our physical possession or internal systems; because data exchange over the internet or the telephone system or physical mail cannot be guaranteed to be perfectly secure, any personal information you submit to us or access electronically or over the telephone is done at your own risk, and we does not guarantee or warrant the security of information so transmitted to us. You should exercise caution to prevent any third parties, or parties fraudulently posing as us, from unlawfully intercepting your transmissions or causing you to disclose personal information.
