Please note that this policy is not applicable to Personal Data collected offsite or through channels other than the SHYUI website. Additionally, it does not apply to practices of entities that FutureWave Group Inc. does not own or control or to individuals we do not employ or manage.

In accordance with the Canadian Federal Privacy Act, this Privacy Policy informs you of our policies concerning the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Data when you use our Site and/or Services, as well as the choices you have regarding Personal Data.

This data primarily supports the security and operation of our Site, as well as our internal analytics and reporting purposes. While Usage Data is essentially anonymous when collected, it could potentially be used indirectly to identify a person.

Retention

We retain collected Personal Data only for as long as necessary to provide you with your requested service or until you request its removal. Certain information may need to be retained for longer periods, such as for record-keeping and reporting in accordance with applicable law or for other legitimate reasons like enforcement of legal rights and fraud prevention. Residual anonymous information and aggregate information, which do not identify you directly or indirectly, may be stored indefinitely. When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process Personal Data, we will delete it, or, if this is not possible, we will securely store Personal Data and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Transfer, Storage, and Security

Personal Data may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside your jurisdiction. We have implemented appropriate and reasonable security measures to ensure that Personal Data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. No transfer of Personal Data will take place unless adequate controls are in place, including the security of the Personal Data. While we strive to protect Personal Data by following accepted industry standards, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Although we will do our best to protect Personal Data, transmission to and from our Services is at your own risk.
