La tête chercheuse keeps your information for a period of time it deems reasonable either to providing you proper access to the Website, completely address any of your inquiries or to fulfill identified purposes, or in accordance with the law, whichever time frame is longer, but for no longer than 2 years.

Once your information is no longer required to be kept, we ensure it remains anonymous or destroy it in a way which ensures protection against unauthorized access or communication. If this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.  

Data may be accessed by relevant personnel, when required for the performance of their functions related to the Services and in accordance with the purposes enunciated in this Privacy Policy.

We never disclose your personal information to anyone outside of La tête chercheuse without your consent, except for the following and only if such third party has in place appropriate safeguards that ensure at least the same level of security than ours:

  • our providers whose services have been retained to carry out duties on our behalf (e.g. data processing). La tête chercheuse takes the necessary means to ensure that these third-party providers process your information for the sole purpose identified by La tête chercheuse;
  • any entity resulting from a merger, a corporation reorganization or change in control of La tête chercheuse, in whole or in part;
  • any public authority if the law so requires, to defend our rights, or otherwise in compliance with the law. In the event where La tête chercheuse is required to divulge information or to provide a copy of such information to a governmental authority under law or pursuant to a court order, La tête chercheuse will attempt to notify you beforehand, to the extent, however, that it is legally authorized to do so.

We do not sell available personal information to third parties. We use collected information exclusively for our internal and marketing purposes, where applicable.
