1. What does this policy cover?

At Summa Linguae Technologies Canada, Inc. (“Summa Linguae”, “us”, “we”, “our”), your privacy is important to us. We want to be transparent about what personal data we process, why-and-how we process it and what your rights are. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) outlines these points and is designed to help you understand our practices with respect to the processing (including collection, use and disclosure) of your personal data in connection with our Robson mobile application (the “Application”) through which we may administer data collection Tasks (“Tasks”). We have appointed a Privacy Officer who is responsible for our compliance with this Privacy Policy. Information on how to contact the Privacy Officer can be found at the end of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to “personal data”, which means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
