1. What Personal Information Do We Collect?
Information You Provide
We receive and store information you provide to us. We only collect your personal information with your consent. For example, we collect personal information such as your name, email address, telephone number, employment information and IP address. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of some of our features. We might also receive information about you from other sources and add it to the personal information we have collected.
In addition, we automatically collect other information such as browser types, operating systems, and the URL addresses of sites clicked to and from this site.
We may also collect anonymous aggregate information on what pages you access or visit. The aggregate information we collect is used for many different purposes in order to serve you better. Among these purposes are to improve the content of the Website, provide services such as technical support, and to customize the content and/or layout of the Website for each individual visitor.
2. How Do We Use Your Information?
We use personal information for the purposes stated or implied at the time of collection, including to respond to your requests, improve the Website, communicate with you, complete transactions that you initiate, to meet the legal and regulatory requirements applicable to us and to improve our business. We may otherwise use your personal information where permissible by law, for example to respond to an emergency, or in the course of an investigation into illegal behavior.
3. Transfers and disclosures of personal information
We will not disclose personal information to any external organization without your consent, unless we are required to do so by law.
Third Party Service Providers
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, and to administer accounts. Some of our third party service providers may be located outside of Canada, and subject to the laws of foreign jurisdictions.
We may transfer personal information to our third party service providers to perform their functions, but they may not use personal information for other purposes. Whenever we hire other organizations to provide support services, they will be required to conform to our privacy standards and to allow us to audit them for compliance.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores or assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that we are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets. We may therefore disclose your personal information in the event of a corporate amalgamation, reorganization, change of control or sale.
If we receive a lawful court order to release account or other personal information then we will comply with the law. We will also release information when necessary to protect the life, safety or property of others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
4. How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?
We take all reasonable steps to protect the security and confidentiality of your personal information. We protect the personal information within our custody or control with appropriate organizational, technological and physical safeguards.
For example, we use encryption to protect your information contained in our customer list. We use a firewall to protect against unlawful intrusion. We limit access to your information on a need to know basis. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer. No system can guarantee absolute security, just as the finest lock cannot guarantee physical security. However, we take every reasonable precaution to assure that your data is secure.
We only retain personal information for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. When we no longer are required to retain the information, we will destroy, erase, or de-identify the information. Legal requirements, however, may require us to retain some or all of the personal information we hold for a period of time that is longer than that for which we might otherwise hold.
6. Your Choice: Opt-in or Opt-out
It is your choice whether to receive emails or special offers from us or others. Where applicable, we will seek your express consent to send you information, including by way of commercial electronic messages (such as emails). This consent is sought by Equiton Partners Inc. at 1111 International Blvd, Suite 600, Burlington ON, Canada, L7L 6W1 and email@example.com. You can unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions in the commercial electronic message.
If you have opted out of receiving marketing communications from us, please be aware that we may still contact you for other purposes. For example, we may contact you to provide communications you have consented to receive, regarding the services we provide to you, or if you contact us with an inquiry.

8. Access, Correction and Accountability
We will strive to keep all personal information in our files complete, up-to-date and accurate.
You or a person authorized on your behalf has the right to request to see and obtain a copy of your personal information and to request changes or corrections to inaccurate or incomplete information.
If you have any questions or concerns with respect to your personal information or our information practices, you may contact us by filling out the form on the “Contact Us” tab of the Website.
