Changes to this Policy
We reserve the right to change the provisions of this Policy at any time. We will alert you that material changes to this Policy have been made by announcing the updates on the Sites, so please check back periodically. If we make any change to our Policy, previously collected information will continue to be governed by the protections of the Policy in effect at the time the information was collected unless otherwise required by law. If, at any time, you do not agree with the terms of this Policy, you should not access or use the Sites, Apps or Services.
Canada Wide, its Sites and mobile applications operate in Canada and are intended for use in Canada. You agree that your access to and use of the Canada Wide Sites, Apps and Services, including this Policy, are governed exclusively by the laws of the Province of British Columbia and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein (excluding conflicts or choice of laws principles). Applicable laws include the BC Personal Information Protection Act and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (the “Privacy Legislation”). other applicable laws.. Certain provisions of Canada’s “anti-spam” legislation, commonly referred to as “CASL” may also govern the use of your personal information.
Personal Information Collection
Personal Information Use and Choice
We use personal information collected for a variety of purposes, primarily to provide you with the Services that you have agreed to receive, to provide you with information regarding news features, products or services, or to contact you regarding the use of our Services. If you have subscribed with us, we will send you information from time to time relating to your account, products and services, such as renewal notices, invoices or service related announcements. If you have consented to receive our email newsletter(s), partner offers and/or other commercial electronic messages, we will use your personal information to send that communication to you. We have a number of communications such as marketing offers and surveys which are sent to recipients from whom we have express or implied consent to send such communications. When we contact you about these special offers or services, you may opt out by following the unsubscribe instructions located at the bottom of these emails or in the case of direct mail marketing offers, contact us at the contact information set forth at the end of this Policy. From time to time we may offer sweepstakes, contests or other promotions. These will require that you register and will be subject to specific rules governing the contest or promotion. You should note that if you consent to participate, your personal information may be disclosed to third parties for the purpose of conducting the promotion. We may use third party service providers to provide advertisements when you visit our Sites or mobile applications. These third party advertisers automatically receive a device identifier and may use tracking technologies to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and personalize the content. You may choose to opt out of receiving targeted ads from such service providers and ad networks, by consulting the respective privacy policies of any of the advertisers to see your options for opting out of such targeted ads. You will continue to receive random advertising and promotional messages but they will not be customized or personalized to you, and will not involve the use of your specific personal information.
CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT
Without being discriminated against for exercising these rights, California law gives its residents the right to request that we disclose what personal information we collect from you, to delete that information, and to opt-out of the sale of your personal information (if we sell such information), subject to certain restrictions. For security purposes, we will verify your identity—in part by requesting certain information from you—when you request to exercise your California privacy rights. You also have the right to designate an agent to exercise these rights on your behalf. This section describes how to exercise those rights and our process for handling those requests.
RIGHT TO KNOW
If you are a California resident, you may submit, free of charge, but no more than twice in a 12-month period, a verifiable request for the following information.
- The specific pieces of personal information we have about you.
- The categories of personal information we collected, sold, or disclosed for a business purpose about you within the last 12 months.
- The categories of sources from which the personal information was collected.
- The purposes for which the information was collected or sold.
- The categories of third parties to whom the information was sold, disclosed for a business purpose, or otherwise shared.
If possible, we will provide this information to you in a readily usable format that allows transmission to another entity. The easiest way to submit a request and receive your report is to direct your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
RIGHT TO DELETE
If you are a California resident, you may submit a verifiable request for us to delete the personal information we have collected about you. The easiest way to submit a request for deletion is to direct your requests to email@example.com.
RIGHT TO OPT-OUT
California residents may opt out of the “sale” of their personal information, as defined by the CCPA. This does not include the following.
- You direct us to disclose your personal information or use us to interact with a third party and the third party does not sell the personal information.
- We use or share an identifier solely to alert a third party you have opted out of the sale of your personal information.
- Your personal information is transferred as an asset as part of a transaction in which the third party assumes control of all or part of our business, in which case the third party would have to tell you in writing if it materially changes how the information is used or shared.
- We use or share your personal information under a written contract with a service provider necessary to perform a business purpose. Here, the service the service provider performs is on our behalf, and our written contract prohibits it from keeping, using, or disclosing your personal information for any purpose other than for the specific purpose identified in the contract.
RIGHT TO BE FREE FROM DISCRIMINATION
We may not discriminate against you because you have exercised your rights, including, for example, by denying you access to our owned and/or operated websites.
If you would like to designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf, please be sure the agent can (i) demonstrate you have provided written permission for the agent to submit the request on your behalf, and (ii) provide proof of his or her own identity. If the agent does not satisfy these requirements, we will deny the request.
Updating, Correcting or Deleting Your Personal Information
If you have an online account with us, you may change any of your personal information in your account at any time. We encourage you to promptly update your information if it changes. You may at any time ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed, or withdraw consent to receive commercial electronic messages from us. You may also contact us at the email or address listed below and request that we update, correct or delete any personal information we have collected, and we will endeavor to respond to your inquiry or to correct, update or remove the personal information you have provided us as you indicate. However, please note that in some cases, we may believe it is necessary or appropriate to retain certain personal information we have collected, and the deletion of such personal information will be in our discretion unless otherwise required by law. If you withdraw consent to receive any commercial electronic messages from us, we will promptly stop sending those messages to you. If you withdraw consent to any other use of your personal information, we will advise you of the implications (if any) of such withdrawal. As an additional security measure we may “back up” the data stored on our systems. Data archived for back-up purposes at a given point in time may include information that you corrected or deleted after the back-up was made.
Online Information Security
We have endeavored to put into place and maintain reasonable industry-recognized security measures in an effort to protect the security of your personal information. For example, if you have an online account, it is only accessible through the use of a password. To protect the confidentiality of your information, to the extent you obtain a password for access to the Sites or for use in connection with the Services, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all uses of the Sites and Services by any person using your password. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused or misappropriated. We also require our partners and Service Providers to adopt and follow stringent consumer privacy policies and communications policies that are consistent with “no call”, “anti-spam” and other applicable legislation. You may choose to link to other third party sites from our Sites or mobile applications in which case you should be aware that we are not responsible for the third parties’ privacy practices or collection, use and disclosure of personal information. You should read the privacy polices of all third party sites before submitting any personal information to those sites.
Changes in Ownership
Canada Wide may decide to sell, buy, merge, or reorganize businesses to further strategic or business interests. Where a transaction of this kind involves disclosing personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, our practice is to seek appropriate protections consistent with our Policy.
