Security of Your Personal Information
We endeavor to protect the Personal Information You entrusted to Us and treat it securely by placing appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the confidentiality of this Personal Information and to protect the Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and which provide a level of security appropriate to the risk represented by the processing and the nature of the data to be protected.
We also contractually require that our suppliers protect such Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. The Internet and mobile networks, however, cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any Personal Information You provide to us through such means.
Except as required by law, We are not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to any such security failures. Transmission of Personal Information is at Your own risk. Our website contains links to other websites that do not belong to Us. We are not responsible for, nor can We ensure the privacy practices or content of such other sites, and this Policy does not apply to those other websites. If You have any questions about security on our website, You can email us at [email protected].
Access to and Accuracy of Your Personal Information
We need Your help in keeping your Personal Information accurate and up to date. We provide a number of options to access and correct Your Personal Information:
- You can view or edit your Personal Information and preferences online by logging into Your account.
- You can request that We delete certain Personal Information or, at Our option, make it non-identifiable and We will make every reasonable effort to accommodate that request, unless We have a legitimate reason to refuse to do so.
- If You need additional assistance or help with accessing or correcting Your Personal Information, please feel free to contact Us directly. We make good faith efforts to honor reasonable requests to access, update, or correct Your data. We will respond to Your request in a timely manner. If We are unable to honor Your request, We will provide You with an explanation.
Consent to Transfer, Processing, and Storage of Personal Information
As We are a global organization, we may transfer your Personal Information between offices in Canada and the United States of America, or to third parties and business partners as described above that are located in various countries around the world. By using Our websites and Services or providing any Personal Information to Us, where applicable law permits, You consent to the transfer, processing, and storage of such information outside of Your country of residence where data protection standards may be different.
Retention of Personal Information
We will retain your Personal Information as needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. We will retain and use Your Personal Information as necessary to comply with Our business requirements, legal obligations, resolve disputes, protect our assets, and enforce Our agreements.
Like many websites, We use automatic data collection tools, such as cookies, embedded web links, and web beacons. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our website. Examples include your browser type and the address of the website from which you arrived at our website. We automatically receive and record information on our server logs from Your browser including IP addresses, cookie information, browsing history and Our website pages requested. We only use this data in aggregate form, for statistical purposes, and not in a manner that would give Us sufficient information to identify You personally. This type of aggregate data enables Us to figure out how often users access parts of Our website, what types of Services they are interested in, where they are generally located and what are their general online behavior patterns. We utilize this information so that we can improve Our website and the Services. This information may be shared with advertisers and other third parties on an aggregated basis, but it does not include the Personal Information of individual Users.
They may also collect information about:
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This is a number automatically assigned to Your computer or device whenever You connect to the Internet. Among other things, the IP address allows web servers to locate and identify Your device for the purpose of facilitating online communications between You and other parties you engage with on the Internet.
- Clickstream behavior. This includes, for example, the pages You view and the links you click. These tools help make your visit to Our website easier, more efficient, and more valuable by providing You with a customized experience and recognizing You when You return.
Some web browsers may give You the ability to enable a "do not track" feature that sends signals to the websites You visit, indicating that You do not want your online activities tracked. This is different from blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with a "do not track" feature enabled may still accept cookies.
No industry standard currently exists on how companies should respond to "do not track" signals, although one may develop in the future. Our websites functionality is not currently able to recognize and respond to "do not track" signals. If We do in the future, We will describe how in this Privacy Statement.
As part of these efforts to improve your online experience, We use a service provided by both Google and Facebook called "retargeting” or "remarketing". This permits Us to reach people who have previously visited our site, and show them relevant advertisements when they visit other sites across the Internet in the Google Display Network and Facebook Ads platform.
We may provide links to other third-party websites and services that are outside Our control and not covered by this Privacy Statement. We encourage You to review the privacy statements posted on those websites (and all websites) You visit.
Your Choices and Selecting Your Communication Preferences
We give You the choice of receiving a variety of information related to Our Services. You can manage Your communication preferences through the following methods:
- By following the instructions included in each promotional email from Us to unsubscribe from that particular mailing.
- By emailing us at [email protected]
These choices do not apply to service notifications or other required communications that are considered part of certain Services, which You may receive periodically unless You stop using or cancel the Service in accordance with our Terms.
By using Our websites, Services, or otherwise providing Personal Information to Us, You agree that We may communicate with You electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to Your use. For example, if We learn of a security system breach, We may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on Our websites, by sending an email, or otherwise contacting You.
We encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children's online activities. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children without appropriate parental or guardian consent. If You believe that we may have collected Personal Information from someone under the applicable age of consent in Your country without proper consent, please let Us know using the methods described in the ‘Contact Us’ section of this Privacy Statement and We will take appropriate measures to investigate and address the issue promptly.
Your Privacy Rights
If You are a California resident and use Our Services, You are entitled to request certain information regarding our disclosure of certain ‘personal information’ (as defined in California Civil Code Section 1798.83) to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
If You are a California resident and have provided us with personal information within the last year, You may make such a request by emailing us at [email protected] and typing “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line of the email.

California residents may also request that We do not share Your Personal Information with third parties for use in direct marketing by them to You. To make such an opt-out request, please email us at [email protected] and type “California Opt Out” in the subject line of the email.
