PRIVACY STATEMENT

—-

SECTION 1 – WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

Your privacy matters to us, which is why we follow a few simple rules when handling your information:

We will never ask you for any personal information that we don’t actually need.

We will never share your personal information with any third parties except in certain limited circumstances.

In the course of operating this website, Brand Gesture collects certain kinds of non-personally-identifying information, such as the kind of browser you use to access the site, your language, and the date and time of your visit. The reason we collect this information is to help us understand how you are using this site. We may occasionally publish reports that include non-personally-identifying information.

We also collect information that could personally identify you, such as your IP address, when you browse this site or leave comments. Again, we will never share or disclose this information unless it is required to deliver an affiliate program, to comply with requests from law enforcement, or to defend our rights.

We may also collect email addresses and usernames, depending on how you choose to use our site. In any case, we only collect as much information as is needed to meet our obligations to you. You can always decline to provide personally identifying information, though it may restrict the kinds of activities you can perform on this site.

We collect statistical information based on visitor behaviour. We may publicize this information or share it with others. But we do not give out any information that can personally identify you except in certain cases when it is required.

 

SECTION 2 – 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. We also collect your credit card details when you purchase something using a credit card.

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 (if applicable): With your permission, we may send you emails about our store, new products and other updates.

 

SECTION 3 – 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 express 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 mike@brandgesture.ca or mailing us at: Brand Gesture Marketing 247-1865 Dilworth Drive, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 9T1, Canada

 

SECTION 4 – DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so, if we must disclose your personal information in order to defend our legal rights, or if you violate our Terms of Service. We may also disclose your information if administering an affiliate program requires us to.

We disclose information that could personally identify you to our contractors, employees, and affiliates when (i) divulging that personal information is necessary to the provision of services through this website and/or its contractors, employees, and affiliates, and (ii) our contractors, employees, and affiliates have agreed to keep your information confidential.

Our contractors, employees, and affiliates may be located outside the country in which you reside. By using our website, you acknowledge that your personal information may cross international borders, and you consent to this transfer of information.

Brand Gesture will never sell or auction any of your personally identifying information to third parties. Aside from as described above, we only divulge your personal information when a court order, subpoena, or other government action forces us to, or when we hold a good-faith belief that divulging your personal information is an essential step in protecting our property or rights, or the rights or property of any third parties or of the public.

If you have provided us with your email address, we may occasionally email you with content, or to announce new products and services, or to ask for your feedback.

 

SECTION 5 – THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies regarding the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.

Links

When you click on links on our store, they may direct you away from our site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

 

SECTION 6 – SECURITY

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we implement generally accepted industry standards.

 

SECTION 7 – COOKIES

This website uses HTTP cookies. A cookie is a small data packet that a website places on your computer. Your computer provides this cookie to the website every time you come back to the website. You can choose to disable cookies in your web browser’s preferences settings.

 

SECTION 8 – GOOGLE ANALYTICS

This site uses Google Analytics to track user behaviour and gather data in order to help us optimize the site and create a better user experience. The kind of data collected is non-personally-identifying and consists of things such as your general location (your country), your operating system, your browser, and what pages you visit.

 

SECTION 9 – AGE OF CONSENT

By using this site, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state or province of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence and you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.

 

SECTION 10 – 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.
