Privacy Policy

At DevFacto Technologies Inc., (“DevFacto”) we are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of your personal information. We take protection of your privacy seriously, and we comply with the federal privacy legislation known as the Personal Information Protection and Electronics Documents Act (the “Act”), the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Canadian Standards Association’s National Standard Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information.

This Privacy Policy details how DevFacto collects, uses, and discloses personal information from (the “Site”); it also applies to other online or offline DevFacto sites, products, or services, unless specifically stated otherwise on such sites, products, or services. Your provision of Personal Information (as defined below) to DevFacto means that you agree that we may collect, use, and disclose your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with these terms, please do not provide any Personal Information to DevFacto. Unfortunately, certain services can only be offered if you provide Personal Information to us. Consequently, if you choose not to provide us with any required Personal Information, we may not be able to offer you those services. DevFacto reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time without notice. We therefore recommend that you visit this page often to ensure that you are up to date on our latest Privacy Policy.

What is Personal Information?

“Personal Information” means information about an identifiable individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, etc.). Information such as the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization is not considered “Personal Information”.

What data we collect and how we collect it

When you fill out an online form, register as a newsletter subscriber, or contact us, we may ask for your name, address, postal code, e-mail address and phone number.

In order to better understand our audience to serve their needs, we use Google Analytics and HubSpot to track the numbers of visitors to our site. We do not collect any personal information or store IP addresses locally on our site. This information is only used to monitor the number of hits on our pages and location at the city level, therefore we cannot track or trace individual users or their physical addresses.

DevFacto uses cookies to personalize the Site. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies help the Site recall your specific information to ease your Site navigation, allowing you easier use of the features on the Site that you customized, among other things. Visitors to the DevFacto website can opt-out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting Google Ads Settings page. Alternatively, visitors can opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.

DevFacto does not sell, trade, or otherwise provide to third parties any Personal Information it has obtained except as described in this Privacy Policy.

How we use your personal information

Any Personal Information that you provide to DevFacto will be used for the purpose for which it was collected. If you are located in the European Economic Area, you must be informed that your data is being transferred outside of the EU, to Canada. We will always inform you why we are collecting the Personal Information and if you are not comfortable with that use, please do not provide us with your information. Your Personal Information may also be used to contact you regarding other products and services that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of such future contact, meaning you can ask us to no longer send you e-mails or direct mail. Every direct mail piece or e-mail that we send you will detail how you may opt out of being contacted. DevFacto will delete Personal Information that is no longer required to perform the identified purposes.

Legal grounds

By agreeing to this privacy policy, subscribing to DevFacto updates online, communicating with, commenting in proprietary online spaces, or asking us to contact you, you understand that you are providing this information to us voluntarily and there is a legitimate reason to retain this information for the period required to discharge those obligations mentioned above. Without the contact information we will not be able to provide the products, services, and information about which you have requested.

Your rights

Depending on the legal grounds for processing, you may:

  • have your Personal Information updated and amended if it is incorrect, out of date or incomplete.
  • restrict the level of processing or automated processing.
  • know how long we keep your Personal Information.
  • ask us to erase your Personal Information at any point and be forgotten.
  • ask us to provide details of your Personal Information we hold.
  • You can do this by emailing us at We will, of course, need to verify your identity before we can speak to you about the Personal Information or act on your instructions.

How long we keep your Personal Information

Your Personal Information will be retained for the period needed to interact with you, but no longer than 5 years subsequent or as required by law.

For blog content your comments and information will be retained for the length of time the platform is published and active, or until you choose to delete such information.

Sharing of Personal Information

DevFacto may transfer Personal Information to organizations hired to perform services on our behalf. Personal Information will only be provided to organizations providing services to DevFacto if they agree to use such information solely for the purposes of providing services to DevFacto, under the instruction of DevFacto and to act in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy. We disclose only as much of the Personal Information as is required by these agents to perform the task they have been retained to perform. Please note that we will release Personal Information if in our opinion we are required to do so pursuant to law (including the Act), or by a search warrant, subpoena, court order or other legal process.

Our commitment to data security

Although DevFacto does not collect sensitive information, we do have physical measures, organizational measures and technological measures in place to ensure protection of your Personal Information. Our security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available. DevFacto assumes no liability for interception, alteration or misuse of information transmitted over the Internet.

Collection of information that is not "identifiable"

We may collect additional demographic information which will never be connected to any Personal Information you may provide. We do this in an effort to provide the highest quality of services to our clients. This data is collected in the aggregate to provide research information and trending models. For instance, we may collect just your postal code.
