In this Privacy Statement, “personal information” is information about an identifiable individual, such as your name, address, and email address. To the extent permitted by law, the provisions of this Privacy Statement concerning “personal information” do not apply to information that enables you to be contacted at a place of business (such as your business telephone number and business email address).
Use of your personal information
During your use of the Website, you may be asked to voluntarily provide personal information for purposes such as corresponding with you, providing Services to you, entering promotional contests, or other purposes specified at the time of collection. Personal information we collect to use for these purposes includes your name, email, job title, social media handles and/or name of your workplace. G&F will not use your personal information for purposes other than those for which it is collected, except with your consent or as permitted or required by applicable law. Additionally, G&F may keep a record of all communications with you.
Disclosure of your personal information
G&F may disclose your personal information as required or permitted by applicable law, or to its agents, suppliers and service providers for use in connection with matters relating to your use of the Website, G&F’s provision of Services to you, or otherwise as specified by G&F at the time of collection. G&F may also disclose your personal information to other persons at your request, with your consent, or in connection with an investigation or proceeding to investigate or protect you and other persons and G&F from error, risk, fraud, or criminal activity. G&F will not sell or rent your personal information to any third party. G&F has no control over, and no responsibility or liability for, those persons’ use and disclosure of your personal information, and that use and disclosure is not subject to this Privacy Statement.
G&F may use your personal information to create non-personal information regarding the use of the Website and the Services. We may use and disclose this aggregate data to better understand our overall user base and for other purposes in our sole discretion. G&F may permanently retain non-personal information for future use.
You may withdraw your consent to the use and disclosure of your personal information, but doing so may mean that G&F cannot provide services to you. To withdraw consent, please contact G&F’s Privacy Officer.
Retention of your information
G&F retains your personal information for as long as required to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as may be required by law. When no longer required, your personal information will be destroyed, anonymized, or disposed of using secure methods.
Location of information
G&F will store and process your personal information in secured locations. The personal information is stored and processed in Canada. However, the disclosure of your information in accordance with this Privacy Statement and applicable law may result in your personal information being transferred outside of Canada, including to the United States. The laws of other countries regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information may be different from the laws of Canada. Your use of the Website indicates your consent to your personal information being transferred outside of Canada and subject to the laws of these other jurisdictions.
Safeguarding your information
G&F has reasonable security safeguards to protect personal information against loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying or modification. Nevertheless, you should be aware that security risks cannot be eliminated and G&F cannot guarantee that your personal information will not be used or disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Statement.
