HOW WE MAY SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

Don’t worry, your Personal Information is in safe hands. We absolutely do not sell or market your Personal Information to third parties. Your Data is yours. However, to provide you the Services, we may share certain information that we collect from you in the following manner:

  • Within our family of companies, including parents, corporate, affiliates, subsidiaries, business units and other companies that share common ownership;

We may provide Personal Information to our providers and partners to process it for us based on our instruction and in compliance with our privacy policy;

  • For business transactions relating to any reorganization, merger, sale of assets, funding or acquisition of all or part of our activities by another corporation, including in the context of a due diligence or closing process;

  • In all cases where sharing your information is permitted or required by applicable law (for example, court order, situation that threatens the life, health or safety of an individual).

When we share your Personal Information to third parties, we take reasonable measures to ensure that those third parties follow the rules in this Privacy Policy, and that they provide sufficient guarantees to implement the appropriate technical and organizational measures.

We may share certain automatically-collected, aggregated, or otherwise non-personally-identifiable information with third parties for various purposes, including (i)  for following various reporting obligations; (ii) for business or marketing purposes; or (iii) to assist such parties in understanding your interests, habits, and usage patterns for certain programs, content, services, and/or functionality available through the Services. In short, whenever we share your information with others, it is to best serve your needs.

OTHER WEBSITES AND SOCIAL MEDIA

Our website may have links to third party websites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud or others. We can’t control or be held responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties. Some features, such as data sharing, offer you the possibility of granting third parties access to your information. For example, through API interfaces. Please be aware that how these third parties handle your information is under the privacy policies of those third parties. Also bear in mind that anyone may read, collect and use information that you publish in a public forum such as our social media.

REFERRAL CAMPAIGNS

We may from time to time invite you to share a promotional offer or to refer our Services to members of your family or close friends. In such cases, please make sure that the people you refer us to are indeed members of your family (spouse, common-law partner, parent or child) or are people with whom you have a personal relationship (frequent communications, shared affinities, opinions, etc.). We would really appreciate it if you referred us only to people you closely know who’d be interested in our Services.

HOW WE MANAGE YOUR INFORMATION

Boost Collective may store or process your Personal Information in other countries where we have facilities or have third party service providers. By using the Service, you consent to the transfer of information to countries outside your country of residence, including the United States. Therefore, your Personal Information may be subject to data protection and privacy laws different than in your country. While such information is outside of Canada, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is held, and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of such other country, in accordance to the laws of such country. However, our practices regarding your Personal Information will always be  governed by this Privacy Policy and, if applicable, we will comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) requirements, providing adequate protection for the transfer of Personal Information from the EU/EEA to a third country. Information can also be stored locally on the devices that you use to access our Services.

We store your Data as long as we need it to provide the Services to you, or as required by applicable laws, regulations, or government orders. If you delete your account, we will also delete all of your Personal Information. However, please note that: (1) there may be a delay before this information is deleted from our servers and our backup servers; and (2) our legal obligations might require us to retain some information. With the exception of paid accounts, we reserve the right to delete your account if you fail to access our Services for twelve (12) consecutive months. Before deleting your account, we will send you a notice to your email address.

CHILDREN

Our Services are not intended for children under 13 years of age and we never knowingly collect any Personal Information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected Personal Information on a child under 13 years of age without first having received the authorization of a parent or guardian, we will take the necessary measures to promptly remove that information.

SECURITY

We are very committed to protecting your Personal Information. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information you submit to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We maintain appropriate technical and administrative safeguards to protect your Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of your Personal Information in our possession. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the Service, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or administrative safeguards. If you believe your Personal Information has been compromised, please contact us as described in the “Contact Information” section. If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you and the authorities of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.

If we make any such change, we will post a notice to that effect on our website to inform you of the date on which these amendments will come into effect.
