We use this information to provide better, more relevant content on our site, to identify and fix any problems with our site, and to improve your overall experience on our site.

  • If you do not want information collected through the use of these technologies, there is a procedure in most browsers that allows you to automatically decline many of these technologies, or to be given the choice of declining or accepting them.
  • Additionally, if you reside in the EEA or other jurisdiction that requires us to obtain your consent to use cookies on our site, then you will have an opportunity to manage your cookie preferences on our site, other than certain cookies required to enable core site functionality, which you cannot choose to disable.

Do Not Track Signals:  Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, Wicket does not currently respond to browser DNT signals.

5. Use and Transfer of Your Information Out of the EEA

This website is operated in Canada and the third parties with whom we might share your personal data as explained above are also located in Canada, the United States or other countries located outside of the EEA.

Whenever personal data is processed, there is a risk that such data could be lost, misused, modified, hacked, breached, and/or otherwise accessed by an unauthorized third party. You acknowledge that no system or online transmission of data is completely secure. In the event that our system is compromised, we will notify you as soon as is feasible if it is reasonable to believe that the breach created a real risk of significant harm to you. In addition to the measures that Wicket has in place to protect your personal data, you should use appropriate security measures to protect your personal data, including taking reasonable steps to protect your password or access information for Wicket software or services.
