At U-Lace Canada, the security of your personal information is a high priority. We maintain appropriate safeguards and current security standards to protect your personal information, whether recorded on paper or captured electronically, against loss or theft, unauthorised access, disclosure, or misuse.
Further, when you use our Service we may solicit your permission to collect your location data. Please be advised, for some features within our Applications to function (e.g. Store Locator) we must confirm your current location and therefore some features will not be available if you choose not to provide your location data to us. The specificity of the location data collected may depend on a number of factors, including the device you are using (e.g. laptop, smartphone, tablet) and how you are connected to the internet (e.g. via cable broadband connection, WiFi, etc.). If you enable location services for our Applications, we may collect location data (e.g. Postal Code) periodically as you use or leave open our Applications. We may also use this data internally or in conjunction with our third party service providers to customize your experience and provide offers that may be relevant to you. Depending on the platform you use to access our Applications (e.g., Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android, Windows, etc.) you may be able to control from within the settings on your wireless device or the Application(s) whether location data is collected.
We reserve the right to co-operate with local, provincial/state, national and international authorities in investigations of improper or unlawful activities and this may require the disclosure of personal information. We may also report to other organizations about improper or unlawful activities on any U-Lace Canada Corporation website and this disclosure may include disclosure of personal information relating to those individuals conducting such improper or unlawful activities.
In addition, in order to protect you and U-Lace Canada from fraudulent transactions, we may provide your online shopping related information to a reputable outside organization to perform address verification. This address verification is intended to ensure that the “bill to” address that you provide matches your credit card address. The outside organization does not store any personal information that we provide from shopping transactions.
