It is important to note that when we do business with a service provider or any other person mentioned in the preceding’s paragraphs and when that person is located outside of Canada, or when we use our own facilities outside of Canada for storing or processing data, foreign government authorities may obtain your personal information through orders issued under the laws that are applicable on their territories. Also, such laws may provide for different rules on protection of personal information.
The personal information that we collect about our Users is retained for the duration of their relationship with Caudalie, increased by a period of three years thereafter, and is then archived to meet certain legal requirements, or are kept on an anonymous basis for study and statistics purposes.
However, we retain certain data after the deletion of the account of an User when such retention is provided by law, or when such retention is necessary to prevent and detect fraud, breaches of Web site security, activities that may be prohibited or unlawful or reassignment of that information to a different person, as well as for the protection of Caudalie's rights and remedies.
All Users have the right to review and correct or update the personal information that we have collected about them, as well as the right to stop receiving communications from Caudalie for marketing or quality control purposes. To exercise one or more of these rights, the User may contact Caudalie at [email protected] or postal address of the Company.
