For instance, we may be forced to disclose information by a court of law or another person or organization having the authority to compel such disclosure. We may provide information to law enforcement authorities or other relevant investigative bodies if we have reasonable cause to suggest that it will aid in the investigation of illegal conduct. Additionally, we may reveal personal information to other organizations in the event of an investigation into a breach of an agreement or a violation of the law, or in the event of discovering, suppressing, or preventing fraud.
Denue Inc. does not sell (in the conventional sense of the word "sell") your personal information to other parties. That means, we do not sell, rent, or trade your name, phone number, address, email address, or other personal information with other parties.

If you visited our website at any point in time and saw advertisements, your information was "sold" to our advertising partners in accordance with Canadian law.
SECTION 4 – (PAYMENT PLATFORM)
Our store is hosted on a custom built solution using PHP, CodeIgniter and Bootstrap. This platform gives us the ability to sell our products and services to you. Your data is entrenched in this custom solution’s data storage, and the general Denue application. It should be noted that your data is kept on a secure server, behind a firewall.
If you decide to complete the purchase of your product through a direct payment gateway, Denue keeps your credit card information. This is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your transaction data is kept only as long as is deemed necessary, in order to complete your purchase transaction. Once this is done, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
Every direct payment conforms to the standards set by PCI-DSS, which is managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint collaboration of various brands, such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements assist in the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers. For further details, you may also want to read Denue’s Terms of Service or Privacy Statement.
SECTION 5 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES
Overall, the third-party providers engaged by us will only collect, disclose and use your information only as exigencies may demand them to perform the services provided to us.
Although, certain third-party service providers, which includes payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, incorporate their own privacy policies in respect of the information that we are expected to provide to them, with respect to your purchase-related transactions.
With regards to such providers, we highly recommend that their privacy policies are read, in order for you to fully understand how your personal information shall be handled by such providers.
Remember, specific providers may be located in a jurisdiction, or have facilities that are situated in jurisdictions different from either you or us. So, if you elect to proceed with a particular transaction that requires the services of a third-party service provider, your information may be subjected to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) which regulate the service provider or its facilities. For instance, if you, the user, are located in the United States, while the payment gateway is located in Canada, your personal information that is used in completing such transaction may be subject to disclosure regulated by Canada’s legislation.
