Although Mr. Payday does its best to protect Personal Information on the Site, for other websites linked to the Site which are not managed by Mr. Payday, we are unable to manage your Personal Information, and Mr. Payday is not responsible for information that is provided to these other websites.
We may also disclose Personal Information to Affiliated Companies and Non-Affiliated Third Parties that provide services to us (“Service Providers”), which may be located outside of Canada.
