Very Canadian.ca Privacy Notice
Last Updated: June 8, 2018
What Personal Information About Customers Does Very Canadian.ca Gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your Very Canadian experience. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our stores, and communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses Very Canadian.ca or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of Very Canadian.ca on other Web sites.
When you download or use apps created by Very Canadian or its subsidiaries, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Very Canadian.ca if your computer supports such capabilities. If you don't want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Customer Communication Preferences.
What About Cookies?
Cookies are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device, to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide features such as faster checkout, personalized advertisements on other Web sites (e.g., Very Canadian Associates with content served by Very Canadian.ca), and storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
Does Very Canadian.ca Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we're not in the business of selling it to others.
Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control:
We work closely with our affiliated businesses. In some cases, these businesses may operate stores at Very Canadian.ca or sell offerings to you at Very Canadian.ca. In other cases, we operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines jointly with these businesses. You can tell when a third party is involved in your transactions, and we share customer information related to those transactions with that third party.
Third-Party Service Providers:
We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Sometimes, we send offers to selected groups of Very Canadian.ca customers on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we don't give that business your name and address.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that Very Canadian.com.ca, Inc. or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information of course will be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of Very Canadian.ca and Others:
We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Very Canadian.ca, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit-risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
With Your Consent:
Other than as set out above, you'll receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you'll have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
How Secure is Information About Me?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you enter.
We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It's important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and your computer. Be sure to sign off when you've finished using a shared computer.
It is important to understand that all payments made through Very Cananadian.ca are made with Shopify Payments.
Which Information Can I Access?
Very Canadian.ca gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with Very Canadian.ca for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.
What Choices Do I have?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of such Very Canadian.ca features as Customer Reviews and Wish Lists.
If you don't want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Customer Communication Preferences. (If you don't want to receive Conditions of Use and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice, those notices still will govern your use of Very Canadian.ca, and it's your responsibility to review them for changes.)
If you do not want us to use personal information that we gather to allow third parties to personalize advertisements we display to you, please adjust your Advertising Preferences.
Are Children Allowed to Use Very Canadian.ca?
Very Canadian.ca does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you're under 18, you may use Very Canadian.ca only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.
Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions
If you choose to visit Very Canadian.ca, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the Province of Ontario. If you have any concern about privacy at Very Canadian.ca, please contact us with a thorough description, and we'll try to resolve it.
Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice and the Conditions of Use will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
Examples of Information Collected
Information You Give Us
You provide most such information when you search, buy, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate with customer service. For example, you provide information when you search for a product; make an order; provide information in Your Account (and you might have more than one, if you've used more than one e-mail address when shopping with us); communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise; complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form; compile Wish Lists or other gift registries; and provide and rate reviews. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, and telephone number; credit card information; names of people to whom purchases have been shipped, including address and telephone number; names of people (with addresses and telephone numbers) listed in settings; content of reviews and e-mails to us; and financial information.
Most mobile devices provide users with the ability to disable location services. Most likely, these controls are located in the device's settings menu. If you have questions about how to disable your device's location services, we recommend you contact your mobile service carrier or your device manufacturer.
Information from Other Sources
Examples of information we receive from other sources include updated delivery and address information from our carriers or other third parties, which we use to correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily; and credit history information from credit bureaus, which we use to help prevent and detect fraud and to offer certain credit or financial services to some customers.
Information You Can Access
Examples of information you can currently access easily at Very Canadian.ca include up-to-date information regarding recent orders, personally identifiable information (including name, e-mail, password, communications preferences, address book, and settings), payment settings (including credit card information, gift certificate, gift card, and check balances), e-mail notification settings, Wish Lists, and recommendations.

At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, Very Canadian.ca does not take title to the refunded item.

"List Price" means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer, supplier, or seller.

With respect to items sold by Very Canadian.ca, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If an item's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.
We generally do not charge your credit card until after your order has entered the shipping process or, for digital products, until we make the digital product available to you.

Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability

IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE BELOW DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MIGHT NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
THE Very Canadian.CA SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE Very Canadian SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY Very Canadian.CA ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. Very Canadian.CA MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE Very Canadian.CA SERVICES OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE Very Canadian.CA SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.

Applicable Law and Disputes
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Very Canadian.ca Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Very Canadian.ca or through Very Canadian.ca Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Corporation Service Company. Likewise, Very Canadian.ca will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
By using any Very Canadian.ca Service, you agree that the Canadian Federal Arbitration Act, applicable Canadian federal law, and the laws of the province of Ontario, Canada, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Very Canadian.ca.
For Quebec consumers: These Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Very Canadian.ca shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Quebec, without reference to its conflict of laws provisions, and the laws of Canada applicable therein, and any disputes will be submitted to the courts of competent jurisdiction of the District of Montreal (Quebec).
Site Policies, Modification, and Severability
Please review our other policies, such as our pricing policy, posted on the Very Canadian.ca site. These policies also govern your use of Very Canadian.ca Services. We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, Service Terms, and these Conditions of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
