Privacy Policy

 

Your privacy is important to us.

Here are the nitty-gritty details of our privacy policy with regards to the information we collect from you when you subscribe to our updates or use our online shop.

This policy applies where we are acting as a data controller with respect to the personal data of our website visitors; in other words, we determine the purposes and means of the processing of that personal data.

SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

When you purchase something from our store, as part of the buying and selling process, we collect the personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address.

When you browse our store, we also automatically receive your computer’s internet protocol (IP) address in order to provide us with information that helps us learn about your browser and operating system.

Email marketing: With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.

SECTION 2 - CONSENT

How do you get my consent?

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

How do I withdraw my consent?

If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at any time, by contacting us at buzz@threeforagers.ca or by requesting our company’s mailing address through the same email.

SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

Our website is hosted by Squarespace Inc.

Your data is stored through Squarespace data storage, databases and the general application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

SECTION 5 – LINKS

Section 8 - Your Rights

In this section we have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some rights are complex and not all details are present in our summaries. We encourage you to read relevant guidelines from the regulatory authorities for a more thorough explanation of your rights.

First and foremost, data subjects have the right to confirm if controllers in fact process their personal data. Should the answer be yes, subjects may then request the following:

  1. A copy of the personal data undergoing processing

  2. Purpose of processing

    • In particular, if automated decision-making or profiling takes place, and if so, the logic involved, significance and likely consequences of such processing

  3. Categories of data processed (e.g., name, address, online browsing behaviour)

  4. Any third party recipients of this personal data, both backward or forward looking, especially recipients in third countries (i.e. countries outside of the EU)

    • What safeguards are in place to protect the data being transferred

  5. Any third party sources of data subject’s personal data (i.e. not collected from the data subject directly, for instance by purchasing said data from another source that previously collected the data directly)

  6. How long such personal data would be stored, or if that’s not determinable, how the length of this period would be determined

  7. The existence of the rights to:

    • Rectification

    • Erasure

    • Restriction of processing

    • Objection to processing

    • Complain to a supervisory authority

SECTION 9 - CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here that it has been updated, so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we use and/or disclose it.

If our store is acquired or merged with another company, your information may be transferred to the new owners so that we may continue to sell products to you.
