Information collected is used only to identify potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding Website usage. This statistical information is not otherwise aggregated in such a way that would identify any particular user of the system.
We may process Personal Data related to You if one of the following applies: (i) You have given consent for one or more specific purposes. (ii) Provision of information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with You and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof; (ii) Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which You are subject; (iv) Processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in Us; (v) Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Us or by a third party. In any case, We will be happy to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of Personal Data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.
Information Transfer and Storage
Depending on Your location, data transfers may involve transferring and storing Your information in a country other than Your own. If You are a European Union user, You are entitled to learn about the legal basis of information transfers to a country outside the European Union or to any international organization governed by public international law or set up by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by Us to safeguard Your information. As such transfer takes place, You can find out more by checking the relevant sections of this document or inquire with Us using the information provided in the contact section.
The European Commission has recognized Canada, amongst a few others, as providing adequate data protection. This means that the EU has deemed it suitable for personal data to flow from the EU to the “safe” country, without any further safeguards being necessary. In other words, transfers to Canada will be assimilated to be intra-EU transmissions of data.

You may exercise certain rights regarding Your information processed by Us. In particular, European Union citizens have the right to do the following:
- The right to withdraw consent where You have previously given Your consent to the processing of Your information;

- The right to receive Your information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and, if technically feasible, to have it transmitted to another controller without any hindrance.
