Outshine collects personal information about its website visitors and clients. With a few exceptions, this information is generally limited to:
We may use this information to provide prospects and clients with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or the instructions provided in any email we send.
We do not sell personal information to anyone and only share it with third parties who are facilitating the delivery of our services.
From time to time, Outshine receives personal information about individuals from third parties. Typically, information collected from third parties will include further details on your employer or industry. We may also collect your personal data from a third party website (e.g. LinkedIn).

The information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, the region or general location where your computer or device is accessing the internet, browser type, operating system and other usage information about the use of Outshine’s website, including a history of the pages you view.

Cookies and tracking technologies
Sharing information with third parties
The personal information Outshine collects from you is stored in one or more databases hosted by third parties located in the United States. These third parties do not use or have access to your personal information for any purpose other than cloud storage and retrieval.
Outshine also uses certain infrastructure subprocessors, platform subprocessors and customer success subprocessors to provide services to its clients. It should be noted the applicability of these subprocessors is dependent upon one or more of the following factors: Outshine contracting entity, client location, or services delivered.
We do not otherwise reveal your personal data to non-Outshine persons or businesses for their independent use unless:
Transferring personal data to the U.S.
Outshine has its headquarters in Canada but utilizes third party services located in the U.S. If you choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to the U.S. and process it there. Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to—and maintained on—computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those of your jurisdiction.
The United States has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. Pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR, Outshine is providing for appropriate safeguards by entering binding, standard data protection clauses, enforceable by data subjects in the EEA and the UK. These clauses have been enhanced based on the guidance of the European Data Protection Board and will be updated when the new draft model clauses are approved.
Depending on the circumstance, Outshine also collects and transfers to Canada and the U.S. personal data with consent; to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of Outshine in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. Outshine endeavors to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with Outshine and the practices described in this Privacy Statement. Outshine also enters into data processing agreements and model clauses with its vendors whenever feasible and appropriate. Since it was founded, Outshine has received zero government requests for information.
