Such companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.

We may access or disclose your information, including your PII, if we believe such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or legal process served on the Sites or Superna; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Sites or Superna (including the enforcement of our agreements); or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Superna’s Sites or Offerings or members of the public.

This section of the Privacy Policy applies only to individuals who reside in California. The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) provides additional rights to know, delete and opt out, and requires businesses collecting or disclosing Personal Information to provide notices and means to exercise rights.

California Notice of Collection

In the past 12 months, we or our service providers have collected the following categories of information enumerated in the CCPA in connection with the Sites and the Offerings:

  • First and last name, billing, or other physical address (including street name, city/town, state/province, postal code, and country of origin), e-mail address, and telephone number, to the extent you are interacting with our Sites or ordering or using the Offerings;
  • Information about Site and Offering usage;
  • Any other identifier that permits Superna to make physical or online contact with you; 
  • Internet activity, including history of visiting and interacting with our Sites, browser type, browser language and other information collected automatically by the Sites or Offerings; and

For more information on information we collect, including the sources we receive information from, review the sections above titled “Superna may collect your Personal Information when,” “The types of Personal Information collected may include (but are not limited to)” and “Cookies and Browser Information.” We collect and use these categories of Personal Information for the business purposes described in the “How does Superna use your information” section, including to provide, manage and improve our Sites. Superna does not generally sell information as the term “sell” is traditionally understood. However, to the extent “sale” under the CCPA would be interpreted to include any of the activities described in the “Sharing of Your Personal Information” section, we will comply with applicable law as to such activity.

Right to Know and Delete

If you are a California resident, you have the right to delete Personal Information we have collected about you and you have the right to know certain information about our data practices in the preceding 12 months. In particular, you have the right to request the following:

We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) days. We may require specific information from you to help us verify your identity and process your request. Please note that, in many instances, Superna does not collect types of Personal Information that enable us to identify you. As such, if we do not have information that permits us to verify your identity, we may deny your requests to know or delete. A request for access can be made by you only twice within a twelve (12) month period.

California Do-Not-Track Notice

We may collect information about your online activity while using our Sites and after you leave our Properties. Superna does not support Do Not Track signals, and therefore we do not respond to such signals. 

NOTICE TO INTERNATIONAL RESIDENTS: The Sites are primarily operated and managed on servers located and operated within the United States. In order to receive information about Superna or participate in the Offerings of Superna, you may be sending your PII outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to the United States. Accordingly, if you reside or are located outside of the United States, your PII may be transferred outside of the country where you reside or are located, including to countries that may not or do not provide the same level of protection for your PII. We are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of PII when it is transferred. 


Superna is headquartered in the Canada and has operations and service providers in Canada, the United States and throughout the world. As such, we and our service providers may transfer your Personal Information to, or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide levels of data protection equivalent to those in your country of residence. By using our Offerings, or otherwise interacting with us, regardless of where you live or where you provide information to us, you consent to our use and our service providers’ use of your Personal Information worldwide and to the transfer of your Personal Information to countries outside of your country of residence, including the United States. In certain circumstances, courts, regulatory agencies, law enforcement agencies, or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your Personal Information.

Superna is aware of the July 16, 2020 ruling by the European Court of Justice invalidating the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. Accordingly, Superna will take adequate measures designed to protect the transfer of Personal Information of individuals in the European Economic Area (EU Member States, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway) (“EEA”), such as relying on the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCCs”) as a legal mechanism for such transfer, or other adequate transfer mechanism as required under relevant data protection laws, as well as additional safeguards, where appropriate. A copy of these clauses may be obtained by contacting us at the email address listed below. 

For transfers to or from the United Kingdom (“UK”), we make use of the SCCs, as adapted for the UK. For individuals located in the EEA or the UK, the terms “PII” and “Personal Information,” as used in this Privacy Policy, are equivalent to “personal data” under applicable European and UK data protection legislation.

If you are located in the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland, you have certain rights and protections under applicable law regarding the processing of your Personal Information, as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and this section applies to you.

Legal Basis for Processing 

When we process your Personal Information, we will do so in reliance on the following lawful bases:

  • To perform our responsibilities under our contract with you (e.g., providing the products or services you requested).
  • When we have a legitimate interest in processing your Personal Information to operate our business or protect our interests (e.g., to provide, maintain, and improve our Offerings, conduct data analytics, and communicate with you).
  • To comply with our legal obligations (e.g., to maintain a record of your consent and track those who have opted out of non-administrative communications).
  • When we have your consent to do so (e.g. when you opt-in to receive non-administrative communications from us). When consent is the legal basis for our processing of your Personal Information, you may withdraw such consent at any time.

Data Retention

We store Personal Information associated with your account for as long as your account remains active. In some cases, we retain Personal Information for longer if doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with our legal, regulatory, or other compliance obligations. We store other data for as long as necessary to carry out the purposes for which we originally collected it and for other legitimate business purposes, including to meet our legal, regulatory, or other compliance obligations. 

Your Rights

For users in the European Union, according to the GDPR, you have the following statutory rights:

  • Information. At the point where Personal Information is collected from the data subject, as defined by the GDPR, or obtained from another source, there is a requirement to inform the data subject about Superna’s use of that Personal Information and the rights of data subjects over it. Compliance with this right is provided within this Privacy Policy.
  • Access. You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not Personal Information concerning you is being processed, and, where that is the case, all necessary information to make the process transparent. You also have the right to obtain a copy of your Personal Information being processed.
