How We Protect, Store, and Transmit Your Information
We use a combination of physical, technical, and organizational measures to protect your personal information. These measures are adapted to the volume and sensitivity of the information, the purposes for which they are used, and the format in which they are stored, and include the following:
A framework for privacy and confidentiality governing the protection of personal information throughout its lifecycle. This framework defines the roles and responsibilities of our staff, establishes a process for handling complaints about information protection, and addresses the retention and destruction of personal information.
Internal policies and procedures that define the roles and responsibilities of our employees throughout the information lifecycle and limit their access to this information on a "need-to-know" basis.
Technical protection measures such as encryption, firewalls, passwords, antivirus software, and secure technologies to protect information transmitted over the Internet. For example, when you place orders on our website or through other third-party websites, all information related to your orders, including your credit card number and delivery address, is transmitted over the Internet using SSL technology, ensuring that your browser encrypts the information related to your orders before transmitting it to our secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent anyone other than the operators of our websites from capturing and viewing your personal information.
A designated privacy officer to monitor our compliance with applicable privacy and confidentiality laws.
Training for employees on privacy protection, confidentiality, and data security.
While we use appropriate means to protect our websites and your information, the Internet is not entirely secure. The measures we use are appropriate for the type of information we collect. However, we cannot promise that your use of our websites or mobile applications will be entirely secure. We encourage you to exercise caution when using the Internet. Online access to your personal information is protected by the password you have chosen. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose, share, or reuse your password and use unique passwords for all your online accounts.
We retain the personal information we collect for as long as reasonably necessary to achieve the purposes stated in this Privacy and Security Statement or at the time they were collected, unless the law requires a shorter retention period. We may retain personal information after the end of our relationship with you. The retention period may vary depending on factors such as:
- Bookkeeping, record-keeping, or legal compliance requirements;
- The need to respond to information requests or resolve complaints;
- The operation, expansion, and improvement of our business;
- The need to prevent fraud, protect assets, and promote security; and
- The protection of your rights and safety, ours, or those of third parties.
If we no longer need your personal information for any of these purposes, we will delete or anonymize it in accordance with applicable law, unless the law requires or authorizes us to retain it longer.
Changes to this Privacy and Security Statement
From time to time, we may update our privacy and privacy protection policies, including this Privacy and Security Statement, to reflect changes in our information processing practices, comply with applicable laws and regulations, or improve the clarity and transparency of our policies. If we make significant changes to our Privacy and Security Statement, we will notify you by posting an updated copy on our website and by any other means authorized or required by applicable law, such as sending you an email, displaying a notice in a prominent place on our websites, or giving you notice through other reasonably likely communication channels.
