If you use a third-party login to register or otherwise link to us, we may receive certain information about you from the third party (such as a social network) based on your registration and privacy settings on that third-party service.
If you would like, you can also fill out a customer profile. While it is not required, information obtained from the customer profile questions helps us to learn more about our customers and is used to improve your shopping experience and to provide you with more relevant content and advertising.
A cookie is a small data file that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. For example, we may automatically collect information such as your IP address, geolocation data (if activated by you), unique user ID, cell phone model, operating system, and carrier, and Internet Service Provider. We also may collect information about your use of our Services, such as the time you spend using the Site, the number of times you return, whether you click-through, open, or forward links, emails, and ads, and other Site usage data.
These technologies, such as cookies, allow us to keep track of your order as you shop on our Site, recognize registered users when they visit, and to provide those customers with information and advertising that is more relevant to them.
Tracking Options. You may adjust your browser settings to limit certain tracking or to decline cookies, but by doing so, you may not be able to use certain features on the Site or take full advantage of our offerings.
Even without a cookie, you can still take advantage of most of the features of our Site, including making a purchase. Our system may not respond to Do Not Track requests or headers from some or all browsers.
Information Collected From Other Sources. We may obtain information about you from other sources, including social networks that you use to connect with us depending on the privacy settings and permissions you have set up. This information may include name, user name, demographic information, updated address or contact information, interests, and publicly-observed data, such as from social media and online activity.
Combination of Information. We may also combine the information we receive from and about you, including the information you provide to us on the Site, or through the Loyalty Program, information we receive from third parties, information we automatically collect (as explained above), and information provided or collected offline when you shop in our Stores.

It is a violation of the Site's for you to post any content that requests personally identifiable information from others on the Site.
As with any business, it is possible that as our business develops, we might sell or buy online stores or other assets. In such transactions, information about customers often is among the transferred assets.

Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personal information provided through the Services in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.
For the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement, we or one of our affiliates or an unaffiliated service provider may process and store your personal information outside of the province in which you reside and/or outside of Canada, and as such, courts in those other provinces or foreign jurisdictions may, in certain circumstances, be entitled to access your personal information.
