Personal Information and Privacy Policy

This personal information and privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") was last amended on September 17, 2018.

Tykans Group Inc. ("Tykans") considers matters relating to the protection of personal information and privacy to be extremely important. Tykans has created and implemented this Privacy Policy so that you understand how personal information may be utilized and disclosed and how it is protected.

By providing personal information in connection with your use of the Tykans Web-Based Application (the "Tykans Application" herein) with knowledge of this Privacy Policy, we will assume that you agree to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information in accordance with the terms set out in this Privacy Policy.

If you have questions regarding this Privacy Policy or our privacy practices, then please contact our Privacy Officer. His or her contact information is set out at the bottom of this Privacy Policy.

Our Commitment

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, Tykans will not sell, rent, loan, trade, lease, transfer or otherwise disclose personal information, including e-mail addresses, to any third party.

Respecting Health Information

Nothing in this Privacy Policy will apply in any way to reduce any of Tykans Inc.'s obligations and restrictions that may arise, whether by contract, by law or otherwise, with respect to health information, and for greater certainty, all such obligations and restrictions will take precedence over the provisions in this Privacy Policy.

Definitions

In this Privacy Policy, the following term has the following meaning:

  • "personal information" means information about an individual. Personal information does not include information that cannot be attributed to an individual. For example, information of an aggregate or anonymous nature.
Personal Information Made Anonymous

To the extent that we make any personal information anonymous or we aggregate it with the personal information of others, then that information will no longer be considered to be personal information. Therefore, Tykans will be entitled to use and disclose personal information in any manner that it desires provided the personal information has been rendered anonymous or aggregated where that information cannot be attributed to any individual.

Consent

You shall obtain any required consents to the placement of any personal information into the Tykans Application and the processing and disclosure of the personal information as part of the Tykans Application and Tykans' handling of the personal information in connection with the offering, support, management and development of the Tykans Application as well as set out in this Privacy Policy, including as set out in the next 2 sections, "Use" and "Disclosure".
