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.
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.
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.
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- have your Personal Information updated and amended if it is incorrect, out of date or incomplete.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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
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.
