We retain this information for as long as it is deemed necessary or relevant for the identified purposes or as required by law. If you require access to this information or want it removed, please contact our Compliance and Data Protection Officer.
We will not share your information with any third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so (such as by court order or search warrant), or when you have authorized us to do so. In accordance with the CASL, we will not disclose your email address to any third parties, unless you have provided us with your express consent (ex. you have granted us permission to share your email address with a company prospect).

DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Please note that any of these disclosures may involve the storage or processing of personal information outside of Canada and may, therefore, be subject to different privacy laws than those applicable in Canada, including laws that require the disclosure of personal information to governmental authorities under circumstances that are different than those that apply in Canada.
Because we do not have control over the means of transmission of your personal data, we cannot guarantee that the information that you disclose will be kept private. Although we have security features in place to protect your privacy, we cannot take any responsibility for your use of the Internet to send confidential information.
