Privacy Policy

 

This Website collects personal information and data from its users. This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for the website www.Joiedesigns.ca (the “Website”) of Joie Designs (“Company”, “we”, “us”, or the “Owner”), as well as related products and services we may offer to you (collectively referred to as the “Services”). This Privacy Policy also covers how Personal Data and other information that we receive or collect about you is treated. The term “you” or “User” refers to any purchaser or user of any of our Services.

This Privacy Policy is designed to be read in connection with our Terms of Use, which is available here. By accessing our Website and using our Services, you agree to be bound by both the Website’s Terms of Use, as well as this Privacy Policy. In the Privacy Policy, we go into full detail about our privacy practices and how we collect information, including your rights as Users.

Data Collected

In order to better provide you with the Website and Services, we may collect two types of information about our Users: Personal Data that lets us know the specifics of who you are, and Aggregate Information, which does not by itself identify you, but is a collection of information related to a collective of Users. Note that while you determine whether to disclose Personal Data to us, if you elect not to do so, we may not be able to provide you with the full User experience.

The data we may collect includes:

• Personal Data: voluntarily provided information which may include your name, address, email address, billing and/or credit card information etc. which may be used when you purchase products and/or services and to deliver the services you have requested; or

• Aggregate Information: non-personal anonymous demographic information, or other information automatically collected when visiting our Website, which may include cookies, third party tracking technologies and server logs.

Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of data stored in text files that are saved on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to remember you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a temporary “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”).

Any use of cookies – or of other tracking tools – by the Website or by the owners of third-party services used by the Website serves the purpose of better providing you with the Services, in addition to any other purposes described in this Policy or any other policy we may publish on the Website from time to time.

You can change your browser’s settings to delete cookies that have already been set and to not accept new cookies. To learn more about how to do this or to learn more about cookies, visit internetcookies.org. Note if you delete cookies or do not accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features our Website and Services offer.

How We Collect and Use Data

The Website will only collect Personal Data that you knowingly and willingly provide to us, for example by way of surveys and other online forms your complete, emails you send us, or signups for newsletters, giveaways or contests. It is the intent of the Website to use Personal Data only for the purpose for which it was requested, and any additional uses specifically provided for in this Privacy Policy.

We will primarily use your Personal Data to specific to the Services offered to you. We will also use certain forms of Personal Data to enhance the operation of our Website, improve our internal marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyse Website use, improve our product and service offerings, and customize our Website’s content, layout, and services. We may use Personal Data to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices. Finally, we may use your Personal Data to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you, including our Website Terms of Use, and this Privacy Policy.

We may also collect, or our third-party advertising partners may collect, certain Aggregate Information. For example, we may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers or software, or to administer our Website and to gather demographic information.

Data Retention

We will not retain Personal Data longer than is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected in the first place, or as required by applicable laws or regulations. For example:

• Personal Data collected for purposes related to the performance of a contract between the Owner and the User shall be retained until such contract has been fully performed; and

• Personal Data collected for the purposes of the Owner’s legitimate interests shall be retained as long as needed to fulfil such purposes. Users may find specific information regarding the legitimate interests pursued by the Owner within the relevant sections of this document or by contacting the Owner.

We may be allowed to retain Personal Data for a longer period whenever the User has given consent to such processing, as long as such consent is not withdrawn. Furthermore, there may be circumstances in which we may be obliged to retain Personal Data for a longer period whenever required to do so for the performance of a legal obligation or upon order of an authority.

Once the retention period expires, Personal Data shall be deleted. Therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification and the right to data portability cannot be enforced after expiration of the retention period.

Disclosure of Information

We may not use or disclose your Personal Data except under the following circumstances:

• as necessary to provide Services you have accessed, ordered or requested;

• in other ways described in this Policy or to which you have otherwise consented;

• in the aggregate with other information in such a way so that your identity cannot reasonably be determined;

• as required by law, or in response to a subpoena or search warrant;

• to outside auditors who have agreed to keep the information confidential;

• as necessary to enforce the Terms of Use or any other policies or regulations on this Website;

• as necessary to maintain, safeguard and preserve all the rights and property of the Owner.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to Personal Data. The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. This is all done to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of the user’s personal information under our control.
