We will keep personal information used to make a decision affecting you for at least one year after using it to make the decision, unless otherwise permitted or required by law.
We will destroy, erase or make anonymous documents or other records containing personal information as soon as it is reasonable to assume that the original purpose is no longer being served by retention of the information and retention is no longer necessary for legal or business purposes.
We will take due care when destroying personal information so as to prevent unauthorized access to the information.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Website and our App, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at our Website or our App. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.
· Session Cookies.
Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the Website. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our Website.
· Persistent Cookies.
Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity, and to display advertising both on our Website and on third-party sites.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Website who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the Website, but some features may not function.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other technologies.
Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer's hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Website and our App to, among other things, track the activities of our Website visitors and App users, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Website and App usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded. We also use third party SDKs to, among other things, track our conversions, associate with your account how you use our Website and our App when you are not logged in to the account, and bring you advertising both on and off our Website and our App.
Third Party Analytics.
There is no industry do-not-track standard; SPINCO has processes in place that are designed to recognize web browser "do-not-track" signals. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to use your web browser's do-not-track feature. Please be advised that we cannot guarantee that our processes will capture all such do-not-track signals. You also may disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies); you may opt-out of targeted advertising by following the instructions in the Third Party Ad Network section.
G. Third-Party Ad Networks
Users in Canada may opt out of many third-party ad networks. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada ("DAAC")Online Interest-Based Advertising FAQ for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by DAAC companies. Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAAC will opt you out from those companies' delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our Site or on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt out on the DAAC websites, your opt out may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAAC's website at https://youradchoices.ca/.
H. Customer Matching
We use third-parties to serve advertisements targeted to reach people (or people similar to people) who have visited our Services or are identified in one or more of our databases (“Matched Ads”). This is done by us uploading a customer list to the third-party (such as through Facebook Custom Audiences or Google Customer Match) or incorporating a pixel from the third-party on our Services, and the third-party matching common factors between our data and their data. We may also work with partners to deliver Matched Ads based on data about you and others in those partners’ own databases or match the partner’s data against our own customer lists. To opt-out of us using your data for Matched Ads, please contact us at email@example.com and specify that you wish to opt-out of Matched Ads. We will request that the applicable third-parties not serve you Matched Ads based on information we provide to it. You may also contact the applicable third-party to opt-out. We are not responsible for such third-party’s failure to comply with our or your opt-out instructions.
I. Third-Party Links
Our Website and App may contain links to third-party websites. Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Policy, but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third party websites. We are not responsible for the information practices of such third party websites.
J. Security of Your Personal Information
We have implemented commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee security.
We may also process or transfer your information to jurisdictions outside of your home country where privacy laws may not be as protective. We take appropriate measures to ensure that your personal information remains secure when it is transferred outside of your home country, in accordance with applicable privacy laws.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
K. Access to My Personal Information
You may modify personal information that you have submitted by logging into your account and updating your profile information. Please note that copies of information that you have updated, modified or deleted may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Website or App for a period of time.
Also, upon written request to our Privacy Officer and authentication of identity, we will provide you with your other personal information under our control, information about the ways in which that information is being used and a description of the individuals and organizations to whom that information has been disclosed. We will make that information available within 30 days or provide written notice where additional time is required to fulfil the request.
In some situations we may not be able to provide access to certain personal information. This may be the case where, for example, disclosure would reveal personal information about another individual, the personal information is protected by solicitor/client privilege, the information was collected for the purpose of an investigation or where disclosure of the information would reveal confidential commercial information that, if disclosed could harm our competitive position. We may also be prevented by law from providing access to certain personal information. When an access request is refused, we will notify you in writing, document the reasons for refusal and outline further steps which are available to you.
We will make a reasonable effort to ensure that personal information we are using or disclosing is accurate and complete. In most cases, we rely on you to ensure that your information is current, complete and accurate.
If you demonstrate the inaccuracy or incompleteness of personal information, we will amend the information as required. If appropriate, we will send the amended information to third parties to whom the information has been disclosed. When a challenge regarding the accuracy of personal information is not resolved to your satisfaction, we will annotate the personal information under our control with a note that the correction was requested, but not made.
M. SPINCO Challenges
By participating on a team during any SPINCO challenges, your teammates may see your name, riding goal and riding progress. Not all members of a team are invited and some individuals may join a team through a random coding process. The creator of a SPINCO team may remove any teammate from his/her team at any time at his/her sole discretion.
N. What Choices Do I Have Regarding Promotional Emails?
As permitted by applicable law, we may send periodic promotional emails to you. You may opt-out of our promotional communications by following the opt-out instructions contained in the e-mail. Please note that it may take up to 10 business days for us to process opt-out requests. If you opt-out of receiving promotional emails about recommendations or other information we think may interest you, we may still send you e-mails about your account or any Services you have requested or received from us.
Upon completion of a SPINCO challenge, SPINCO will send one email to challenge participants, including those who have unsubscribed from general marketing messages, with his/her rewards details. Challenge participants can unsubscribe from receiving the rewards notification at any time by emailing infotoronto@SPINCO.ca.
You may also withdraw your consent to our collections, uses and disclosures of your information at any time, subject to legal, contractual and other restrictions, provided that you give reasonable notice of withdrawal of consent to our Privacy Officer.
O. Privacy of Minors
If SPINCO discovers that personal information has been provided by a person who is under the age of majority in the province where he/she has provided such information not in accordance with our Website and App Terms and Conditions or our New Rider Agreement, SPINCO reserves the right to delete such information.
P. Contact Us
