Personal Data Usage
Personal Data could be used for the following purposes:
We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. These measures are appropriate to the risks involved and the nature of the Personal Data. Although TimeHero seeks to protect the privacy of others who use our Service, there is inherent risk in internet based activities so there is no 100% guarantee of absolute security.
When you interact with us through the Service, we and third parties that provide functionality on the Service, may engage, receive, collect and store certain types of information through automatic data collection tools including cookies, encrypted authentication tokens and similar technology. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, may include but is not limited to information about your device, referring/exit pages and URLs and number of clicks. TimeHero may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by TimeHero or third party service providers. The Service may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Service, the number of visitors to each page of our Service, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. Information that we collect will allow TimeHero to make decisions on how to provide better products and better services for our users.
Like many sites, we use “cookies” to collect some of the information detailed above. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
We may use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) to help us analyze how users use our Service. Google will use the information it collects for the purpose of evaluating your use of our Service, compiling reports on Service activity and providing other related services. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
There are certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In connection with any potential or actual corporate sale, merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, dissolution or similar event or transaction, Personal Data may be disclosed to third parties as it may be part of the assets potentially transferred or otherwise relevant to the transaction.
Agents, Consultants and Third Parties: Like many businesses, TimeHero sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions, including to help us understand and improve the use of our Service. We may share any information we receive with vendors and service providers retained in connection with the operation of our business. Before disclosing Personal Data to a subcontractor or third-party agent, TimeHero will obtain assurances from the recipient that it will: (a) use the Personal Data only to assist TimeHero in providing the Service; (b) provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Data as required by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada; and (c) notify TimeHero if the recipient is no longer able to provide the required protections. Upon notice, TimeHero will act promptly to stop and remediate unauthorized processing of Personal Data by a recipient.
Legal Requirements: TimeHero may disclose your Personal Data if requested, subpoenaed and/or if we are required to do so by law, regulation, legal process, or by any court of competent jurisdiction or any inquiry or investigation by any governmental, official or regulatory body which is lawfully entitled to require any such disclosure, or otherwise in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of TimeHero or a third party, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public, or (iv) protect TimeHero against potential legal liability.
TimeHero may use the Personal Data collected to occasionally provide newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, and other information that is relevant to the users and administrators of our Service.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizen data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. TimeHero is compliant in many areas and will be compliant in all areas before May 25, 2018 when GDPR becomes enforceable.
