“Personal information” means recorded information that is reasonably capable of identifying an individual.  This information may include, but is not limited to, your name, date of birth, mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number.

Depending on where you live, personal information may not include any business contact information that is solely used to communicate with you in relation to your employment, business or profession, such as your name, position name or title, work address, work telephone number, work fax number or work electronic address.

Personal information also does not include information that has been anonymized or aggregated in such a way that there is no serious possibility it can be used to identify an individual, whether on its own or in combination with other information.


We collect, use and disclose your personal information with your consent or as permitted or required by law.  How we obtain your consent (i.e. the form we use) will depend on the circumstances, as well as the sensitivity of the information collected.  Subject to applicable laws, your consent may be express or implied, depending on the circumstances and the sensitivity of the personal information in question.  Sometimes your consent will be implied through your conduct with us if the purpose of the collection, use or disclosure is obvious and you voluntarily provide the information.  If you choose to provide personal information to us, we assume that you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as outlined in this Policy.

Typically, we will seek your consent at the time your personal information is collected. Where we want to use your personal information for a purpose not previously identified to you at the time of collection, we will seek your consent prior to our use of such information for this new purpose.

You may withdraw your consent to our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information at any time by contacting us using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below.  However, before we implement the withdrawal of consent, we may require proof of your identity. In some cases, withdrawal of your consent may mean that we will no longer be able to provide certain products or services, including access to the Application.

If you provide personal information about another individual to us, it is your responsibility to obtain the consent of that individual to enable us to collect, use and disclose their information as described in this Privacy Policy. By providing personal information about another individual to us, you represent and warrant that you have obtained their prior consent to do so, and made them aware of this Privacy Policy.


We do not collect any personal information from you except as discussed in this Policy. The personal information we collect is generally in one or more of the following:

This information may include your name, profile photo, or other information included in your profile, e-mail address and other contact information.  We may also record customer calls to our customer service representatives. 


General, aggregated, demographic, and non-personal information may be collected by us through our websites, but any such information will not be linked to any of your personal information. This type of anonymous, aggregated profiling and session data may include information that you have provided to us through surveys, polls, etc., and may also include aggregated anonymous information about website usage and the customer base.  

We will take reasonable measures to ensure the aggregated/anonymized information cannot be associated with an individual, we will maintain and use such information only in an aggregated/anonymized form, and we will not attempt to reidentify such information except as permitted by law.

We may occasionally communicate with you regarding our products and offerings we believe might be of interest to you. For more information, please see the “Opting Out of Communications” section of the Policy.

Whatever the purpose may be, we will collect and process your personal information to the extent you have provided us with your consent, or alternatively as reasonably necessary to fulfill our contracts with you, perform our legitimate business objectives, or as may be required by applicable law. We may use your personal information and other information for purposes for which we have obtained your consent, and for such other purposes as may be permitted or required by applicable law.


We rely on third party services providers to perform a variety of services on our behalf, such as payment card processing, customer support, telephone and technical support, hosting, data storage and processing, customer surveys, marketing, advertising, customer rewards, and research and analytics.  

We may share your information with service providers to facilitate the services they provide to us. If we provide your information to service providers, then we require that the service providers maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and keep your personal information secure.  We also require that they only use your personal information for the limited purposes for which it is provided.  When our service providers no longer need your personal information for those limited purposes, we require that they dispose of the personal information.  In some circumstances, we may permit our service providers to retain aggregated, anonymized or statistical information that does not identify you.  We do not authorize the service providers to disclose your personal information to unauthorized parties or to use your personal information for their direct marketing purposes. A more detailed list of third party service providers is outlined below under “Third Party Websites and Services”.

Additionally, we may use and disclose your information when we believe such use or disclosure is permitted, necessary or appropriate: 

  1. under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; 
  2. to comply with legal process, including outside of your country of residence; 
  3. to respond to requests from public and government authorities, or to cooperate with law enforcement, including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; 
  4. to enforce the terms of the agreements for our products and services, including the Application; 
  5. to protect our operations or those of any of our affiliates or subsidiaries; 
  6. to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property, and/or those of our affiliates, you or others; 
  7. to allow us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain; and
  8. in connection with a sale or business transaction, we may transfer your personal information and other information to a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, brands, affiliates, subsidiaries or other assets.

If we otherwise intend to disclose your personal information to a third party, in a manner not identified in this Privacy Policy, we will identify that third party and the purpose for the disclosure, and obtain your consent.


If you no longer want to receive marketing-related emails from us, you may opt-out of receiving marketing-related emails by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any email you receive from us.  You may also opt-out by contacting us directly using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below. 

We will endeavour to respond to your opt-out request promptly, but we ask that you please allow us a reasonable time to process your request.  Please note that if you opt-out from receiving marketing-related emails, we may still need to send you communications about your use of our products, including the Application, or other matters.


We will use, disclose or retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which that personal information was collected and as permitted or required by law.


We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual and technological security measures with a view to protecting your personal information and other information from loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.  We have taken steps to ensure that the only personnel who are granted access to your personal information are those with a business ‘need-to-know’ or whose duties reasonably require such information. 

While we take precautions against possible breaches in our web sites and customer databases, no web site or Internet transmission is completely secure, so unfortunately we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. Your use of our website(s) and the Application is at your own risk. We assume no liability for disclosure of your personal information due to transmission errors, unauthorized access, or causes beyond our control, including security failures on the part of our partners and third party service providers and processors.

If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any information that you provided to us has been compromised), please contact us immediately using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below.


We make reasonable efforts to ensure that your personal information is kept as accurate, complete and up-to-date as reasonably necessary.  We will not routinely update your personal information, unless such a process is necessary.  We expect you, from time to time, to supply us with updates to your personal information, when required.

You may make a written request to review any personal information about you that we have collected, used or disclosed, and we will provide you with any such personal information to the extent required and/or permitted by law.  You may also challenge the accuracy or completeness of your personal information in our records and request corrections. If you successfully demonstrate that your personal information in our records is inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend the personal information as required. To exercise these rights, please contact us by using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below.

We may require that you provide sufficient identification to fulfill your request to access or correct your personal information.  Any such identifying information will be used only for this purpose.


Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage third party service providers. As a result, your personal information may be transferred to countries outside your country of residence, which may have different data protection rules than in your country.  While such information is outside of your country, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is located, and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of such other country, pursuant to the laws of such country.


This Policy applies only to our websites, products, and services, including the Application.  It does not extend to any websites, products, social media platforms or services provided by third parties.
