4. How We Transfer Data We Collect Internationally

  • Some of the third parties described in this Privacy Policy, which provide services to us under contract, are based in other countries that may not have equivalent privacy and data protection laws to the country in which you reside.

For transfers to or from the United Kingdom, we make use of the standard contractual clauses as adapted for the UK. For transfers to or from Canada, we make use of the standard contractual clauses. With respect to personal data received from or transferred to Canada, C4 is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.

All Personal Data is protected using appropriate physical, technical and organizational measures.

b. Retention of Personal Data

  • How long we keep information we collect about you depends on the type of information and how we collect and store it.  After a reasonable period of time, we will either delete or anonymize your information or, if this is not possible, then we will securely store your information and isolate it from any further use until deletion is possible.
