Your personal information shall be collected, used, processed, transferred, and retained in multiple countries including Canada, the United States, and the European Economic Area which shall be outside the region in which you are situated and shall have different privacy or data protection legislation, and shall therefore be subject to the laws of these countries. If you are a resident of the European Economic Area or a country which restricts data transfers outside of that jurisdiction or region without your consent, by using our Offerings, you consent to your personal information being transferred outside of the European Economic Area or your country for processing or storage by or on behalf of us.

11. CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track ("DNT") feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. At this stage no uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy notice.
