GoingThruVinyl Ltd is committed to protecting the privacy and security of your personal information. Our policies and practices have been designed to comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Document Act (PIPEDA) and corresponding provincial privacy acts.
GoingThruVinyl is responsible for all personal information under its control, and its employees are accountable for compliance with these privacy and security principles.
Personal Information We Collect
When you set up an account with us, or when you make a purchase through our website, we collect certain personal information. That information includes:
This information is collected and used for a number of purposes:
If we intend to use personal information for purposes not identified to you or as set out above, these other purposes will be described to you at the time of collection or before using the information. We will not use your information for any other purpose without your consent.
Users also should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of our Internet servers or through the use of “cookies”. Cookies are small text files containing a unique identification number that identifies your browser - but not you - to our servers each time you visit our website. Cookies are not pervasive or invasive programs that enter a user’s system and damage files. They simply tell us which pages of our website are visited and by how many visitors. Cookies cannot, by themselves, disclose the individual identity of any site user, and we never combine information gathered by a cookie with personally identifiable information like your name, telephone number or email address, without your consent.
Third Parties’ Access to Information
GoingThruVinyl Ltd is not in the business of selling customer information to others. Our customer information is not available for sale to any outside entity. We contract with third parties to fulfill certain functions on our behalf, such as providing marketing assistance, analyzing data, preparing and maintaining site content, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. These agents have access to customer information only as required in order to help them perform their functions on our behalf, but they are not allowed to use that information for any other purpose and must keep such information confidential.
We also work closely with our affiliates, and in some cases we offer services or sell documents jointly with these affiliates. When you purchase documents or services that are provided jointly by GoingThruVinyl Ltd and one of its affiliates, we share our customer information with that affiliate with respect to your purchase.
Customer information is a valuable business asset. If for any reason GoingThruVinyl Ltd transfers or divests itself of its business assets, our customer information will be transferred as one of those business assets.
GoingThruVinyl Ltd will release customer information to the appropriate law enforcement, governmental or other authorities if legally required to do so. GoingThruVinyl Ltd will also release such information if we feel it is necessary in order to protect our rights or the rights of our customers, affiliates, partners or any other party and for purposes of protection from fraud and credit risk.
Non-Secure Website Areas
You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., user name, email address) on non-secure areas of the GoingThruVinyl Ltd website, that information can be collected and correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of GoingThruVinyl Ltd .
We store subscriber and password information on our website in a secure manner. We store such information in a manner not accessible to Web browsers, behind firewall and password protection, or offline.
This site has security measures in place (including the use of Secure Socket Layers (“SSL”) encryption technology) to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the personal information under our control. All order forms are encrypted and are transmitted via a secure server.
Employees, agents and affiliates of GoingThruVinyl Ltd who require access to your personal information in order to fulfill their job or contractual requirements will have access to your personal information to the extent necessary to fulfill such requirements.
This site uses secure and reliable hosting sites to store your valuable data. We also use data duplication to make doubly sure that none of your data is lost.
Updating Your Account Information
If you wish to update your personal information, use the “Go To My Account” option after logging in to access your account information and make changes online.
Upon request, GoingThruVinyl Ltd will allow any user to “opt out” of further promotional contacts at any time. Also, upon a user’s request, GoingThruVinyl Ltd will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally delete the user and his or her personal information from our database; however, it may be impossible to delete a user's entry without some residual information because of backups and records of deletions. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that your account information be deleted from our servers.
