Like many online services, we automatically collect technical data when you visit and use the Site

Technical Data: When you access and use the Site, we may automatically collect certain technical information about your visit, including the date, time, browser type, your internet service provider, your IP address, device information (including device identifiers), geo-location information, computer and network performance data, the version of the application that you are using, the URL that you are coming from and your navigation history in order to customize and personalize your experience on the Site, improve the Site, understand usage of the Site and for statistical research purposes.

Cookies and similar technologies: We use “cookies” (session and persistent), scripts, pixel tags, web beacons and other similar technologies and digital markers on certain pages of the Site. These automatically collect data from a visitor to the Site. Cookies help us recognize repeat visitors, personalize the Service and communications and tailor content to match particular interests.

You are always free to decline cookies. If you decline “cookies” or delete them from your computer, you will still be able to access the Site, but you may find that some areas do not work as smoothly as when cookies are enabled on your system.

5. Disclosure of Personal Information

We do not disclose personal information that we hold to third parties except in the following circumstances:

Brands / Affiliates: We may disclose personal information to our affiliates and our brands.

Required by Law: We will disclose personal information in our custody when we believe that the disclosure is required by law, including to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us and when we receive a request from law enforcement authorities. We will only disclose personal information to law enforcement authorities upon demonstration of lawful authority.

Investigations: We will disclose personal information where it is reasonable for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or a contravention of the law that has been, is being or is about to be committed and it is reasonable to expect that disclosure with the knowledge or consent of the individual would compromise the investigation.

Fraud: We will disclose personal information where it is reasonable for the purposes of preventing, detecting or suppressing fraud and it is reasonable to expect that the disclosure with the knowledge or consent of the individual would compromise the ability to prevent, detect or suppress the fraud.

Business Transaction: We may disclose and share your personal information to explore and/or undertake a corporate transaction, including a merger, acquisition, amalgamation, IPO, reorganization or sale of SLANG and/or the Site. We will enter into an agreement that ensures that your personal information will be used and disclosed solely for the purposes related to the transaction and will be protected by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.

6. Aggregate Data

We may aggregate (i.e. assemble on a basis that does not enable one to personally identify you) the information we collect from you, including any technical data we automatically collect. Aggregated data may be used by us to improve the Site and for marketing purposes, and may be shared with and used by advertisers, our partners and other third parties.

7. Transfer of Personal Information

We may transfer personal information to third-party service providers, suppliers and sub-contractors who assist us in providing and administering the Site. We store personal information in Canada and the United States of America. We may transfer personal information to a third-party service provider outside of your jurisdiction of residence for storage and processing. In the event that your personal information is transferred abroad, the government, courts, law enforcement or regulatory agencies of that jurisdiction may be able to obtain disclosure of the data through the laws of that jurisdiction.

8. Security of Personal Information

SLANG is committed to data security and protects personal information through integrated physical, technological and administrative safeguards. In particular, personal information is protected by security safeguards appropriate to the level of sensitivity of the data through (i) physical measures, such as secure areas; (ii) technical measures, such as secure servers; and (iii) organizational measures such as access policies based on the need-to-know and employee security through vetting and supervision.

It is important to understand that we will undertake every reasonable precaution to safeguard your personal information. However, if a data breach occurs, we will notify you as soon as feasible (in accordance with applicable data protection laws) and will comply with all legal requirements to mitigate any harms resulting from such a breach.

9. Data Retention

Personal information is retained only for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or transferred. When personal information is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or transferred, we will delete the information or convert the information into aggregated or de-identified data.

10. Privacy Rights

Individual Access: If you make a request, we will let you know what personal information we have about you, what it is being used for, and with whom it has been shared. We will provide you with access to your personal information that is in our possession, subject to certain exceptions, including information that is referenced to another individual’s personal information that we cannot sever, or information subject to solicitor-client privilege, or other legal restrictions that may prevent us from fulfilling your access request. To inquire contact us at: privacy@slangworldwide.co (include “Attention: Privacy Officer” in the subject line).

We will respond to your request within one month, free of charge, unless the volume or the complexity of the request requires a longer process. We will notify you if we require an extension and may charge a reasonable fee to cover administrative costs.

Rectification: If you notice any inaccuracies or wish to update any part of your personal information, we will rectify the information as necessary. We will provide rectification as soon as possible within one month. If we refuse the request, we will provide justification.
