NuPharma Inc. (the “NuPharma” or “We”) respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this policy.

This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use, disclose, and protect the personal information of our Application users (“you”), describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the “NuPharma Doctor” software application (our “Application”), and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

We will only use your personal information in accordance with this policy unless otherwise required by Applicable Law. We take steps to ensure that the personal information that we collect about you is adequate, relevant, not excessive, and used for limited purposes.

Privacy laws in Canada generally define “personal information” as any information about an identifiable individual, which includes information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person. Personal information does not include business contact information, including your name, title, or business contact information.

The Application may include links to third-party Applications, plug-ins, services, social networks, or websites. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow the third party to collect or share data about you. If you follow a link to a third-party Application or engage a third-party plugin, please note that these third parties have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. We do not control these third-party Applications, and we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website or application you use.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected by:

  1. Any other application operated by NuPharma or any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries); or
  2. any third party (including our affiliates and subsidiaries) through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or on the Application.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices for collecting, processing, and storing your information. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Application. By accessing or using this Application, you indicate that you understand, accept, and consent to the practices described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy may change from time to time and will be published on Application. Your continued use of this Application after we make changes indicates that you accept and consent to those changes, so please check the Privacy Policy periodically for updates.

Data Security

The security of your personal information is very important to us. We use physical, electronic, and administrative measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. We store all information you provide to us behind firewalls on secured cloud-based servers hosted by a market leading service provider.

Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Application.

Data Retention

Except as otherwise permitted or required by Applicable Law, we will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. Under some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you. We reserve the right to use such anonymous and de-identified data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to you or your consent.

Accessing and Correcting Your Personal Information

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes. By law you have the right to request access to and to correct the personal information that we hold about you.

We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and your right to access, and to provide you with the personal information that we hold about you or make your requested changes.

If we cannot provide you with access to your personal information, we will inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.

We will provide access to your personal information, subject to exceptions set out in Applicable Law. Examples of such exceptions include:

  1. information protected by solicitor-client privilege;

  2. information that is part of a formal dispute resolution process;

  3. information that is about another individual that would reveal their personal information or confidential commercial information; and
