We have provided and will continue to provide a secure environment and this strict Policy that describes the limited ways your information is used and the limited access to such information. We ask that you read it carefully.
Key Elements of this Policy
Here are the key elements of this Policy so you can know the important parts right away to make an informed decision about your consent for our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. By submitting any personal information to us via any means, you consent to such collection, use and disclosure. You can find the details in the rest of the Policy.
|Personal information we collect from you but only with your consent||What we do with it||Third parties we share it with|
|Newsletter Information||Send you our newsletter||Companies that provide our communications, specifically MailChimp|
|Advertising identifiers||Deliver you contextual advertising about M'LORD while you are on the internet||Companies that provide online advertising, such as Google|
Before we get started with the details, here are a few terms we think you should know as you read this Policy.
“Data Protection Laws” refers to the laws that are designed to protect your personal information and privacy in the place where you live. The Data Protection Laws include: (1) “PIPEDA” (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act), which is the Canadian Data Protection Law that applies to our activities in Canada; (2) Quebec’s Act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector (the “Quebec Privacy Act”) as amended by Law 25, that applies to our activities in Quebec; and (3) the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”) as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020, which applies to our activities in the United States. I-D Foods is committed to adhering to these and any other applicable Data Protection laws.
“Personal information” – this is information we collect from you or about you and which is defined in PIPEDA as “information about an identifiable individual” and under the Quebec Privacy Act as “any information which relates to a natural person and allows that person to be identified either directly or indirectly.” It can be as simple as your name or your email, or something more complicated like an online identifier (usually a string of letters and / or numbers) that gets attached to you.
