Where is your Personal Information stored and transferred?

Personal Information we collect is hosted in secure systems hosted on servers that may be located outside your province, territory, or country of residence, including in Canada, the European Union and the United States.

However, we strive to protect Personal Information in our custody, including Personal Information entrusted to an agent or service provider, whether they are located in Canada, the European Union, the United States or other jurisdictions or countries. In particular, we strive to limit their access to Personal Information to that which is necessary to perform their assigned functions. Please be aware that we also strive to put in place contractual arrangements with these agents and service providers to ensure the confidentiality and security of your Personal Information. This may include implementing robust and effective security measures. If you have additional questions about this, you may contact us.


HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Your Personal Information will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of the Purposes for which it was collected, or in accordance with Depix’s legitimate interests, or to comply with applicable legal, tax or regulatory requirements. At the end of this period, we will endeavor to destroy or anonymize such information. 


In determining the appropriate retention period for your Personal Information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of Personal Information involved, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information, the Purposes for which we Process your Personal Information and the possibility of achieving those Purposes by other means, as well as any applicable legal, tax or regulatory requirements. If you would like more information on this subject, please contact us. 


At any time, you may request deletion of your account by contacting us.
