Privacy Policy

Dot Brands Inc. (“Candy.ca“) operates candy.ca and may operate other websites. It is Candy.ca’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Candy.ca collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Candy.ca’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Candy.ca’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Candy.ca may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Candy.ca also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on candy.ca blogs/sites. Candy.ca only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Candy.ca’s websites choose to interact with Candy.ca in ways that require Candy.ca to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Candy.ca gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at candy.ca to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Candy.ca are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Candy.ca collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Candy.ca. Candy.ca does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Candy.ca may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Candy.ca may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Candy.ca does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Candy.ca discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Candy.ca’s behalf or to provide services available at Candy.ca’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Candy.ca’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Candy.ca will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Candy.ca discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Candy.ca believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Candy.ca, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Candy.ca website and have supplied your email address, Candy.ca may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Candy.ca and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Candy.ca takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Candy.ca uses cookies to help Candy.ca identify and track visitors, their usage of Candy.ca website, and their website access preferences. Candy.ca visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Candy.ca’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Candy.ca’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Candy.ca, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Candy.ca goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Candy.ca may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Candy.ca and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Candy.ca may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Candy.ca’s sole discretion. Candy.ca encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a candy.ca account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Security and Fraud Controls

Candy.ca is responsible for protecting the security of Payment Data in our possession and will maintain commercially reasonable administrative, technical, and physical procedures to protect all the personal information regarding you and your customers that is stored in our servers from unauthorized access and accidental loss or modification. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use such personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide this personal information regarding you and your customers at your own risk. We recommend you review our Privacy Policy, which will help you understand how we collect, use and safeguard the information you provide to us.

Candy.ca may provide or suggest security procedures and controls intended to reduce the risk to you of fraud (“Security Controls”). These Security Controls may include processes or applications that are developed by Candy.ca or by third parties, including but not limited to providing two-factor authentication for logging into your Candy.ca Account. You agree to review all Security Controls and choose those that are appropriate for your business to protect against unauthorized transactions and, if necessary, use other procedures and controls not provided by us. Disabling or failing to properly use Security Controls increases your exposure to unauthorized Card transactions. Keep in mind that you are responsible for the use of lost or stolen data that is used to purchase products or services from your business. We are not liable for and do not insure against losses to you or your customers resulting from use of lost or stolen data with Candy.ca Payments (including but not limited to losses arising from the use of lost or stolen credit cards to make purchases from your site or app, or those caused by a compromise of your login credentials).
