We establish written contracts with our Service providers before disclosing your Personal information to them and we only provide them with the Personal information they need to perform their duties. As part of these contracts with our Service providers, we are committed to ensuring that the principles set out in this Policy are observed, and these Service providers are required to use Personal information as directed by us and only for the purposes for which it was provided. In addition, these Service providers provide us with sufficient assurances that they will implement appropriate security measures that are consistent with the sensitivity of the Personal information being processed or communicated. When our Service providers no longer require your Personal information, we require them to destroy this data in an appropriate manner.

We will seek your consent before using your Personal information for purposes other than those set out herein, subject to exceptions provided by the law, including when the new proposed use is consistent with the purpose for which the Personal information was originally collected.
Whenever possible, Tootelo obtains consent directly from the individual in question for us to collect, use and communicate their Personal information. However, if you provide us with Personal information about other individuals, you must ensure that you have duly notified them that you are providing us with their information in addition to having obtained their consent to such disclosure.
