Cookies & Pixels

Our Website may employ the use of “cookies”.  A “cookie” is a small line of data that is sent to your internet browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive.  Cookies can track how and when you use a site.  A cookie does not damage your system and identifies your browser, not you personally.  If you do not wish to receive a cookie, use the options in your web browser.

The Company reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. The Company reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.

Third-Party Service Providers

There are some instances where we may need to disclose personal information to a third party service provider.  Whenever we engage a third party service provider, we confirm that its privacy and security standards meet our requirements.  In the event that a third party service provider is located outside of Canada, the government, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of that jurisdiction may be able to obtain disclosure of your personal information through the laws of that jurisdiction.

By submitting your personal information to us, you have consented to our use and disclosure of the personal information for the purposes as outlined in this policy.  If we wish to use or disclose your personal information other than as described in this policy, we will obtain your express consent before doing so. Whenever we engage a third party service provider, we ensure that the information is properly safeguarded at all times at a comparable level of protection the information would have received if it had not been transferred.

We also use Google Analytics Advertiser Features to optimize our business. Advertiser features include:

  • Remarketing with Google Analytics
  • Google Display Network Impression Reporting
  • DoubleClick Platform integrations
  • Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting

By enabling these Google Analytics Display features, we are required to notify our visitors by disclosing the use of these features and that we and third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) or other first-party identifiers, and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to gather data about your activities on our Site.  Among other uses, this allows us to contact you if you begin to fill out our check-out form but abandon it before completion with an email reminding you to complete your order.  The “Remarketing” feature allows us to reach people who previously visited our Site, and match the right audience with the right advertising message.

You can opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting Google’s ad settings and/or you may opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page.
