We may transfer personal information that we collect or that you provide to contractors, service providers, and other third parties that we use to support our business and who are contractually obligated to provide a comparable level of privacy protection while the information is processed or handled by them.
We may process, store, and transfer your personal information in and to other countries with different privacy laws that may or may not be as comprehensive as Canadian law.
