Last revised: December 31, 2021.  

12282071 Canada Inc. dba Azingo and our corporate affiliates (variously referred to as “Azingo”, “we”, “us” or “our”) respect your privacy. This privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) available at www.azingo.com/privacy-policy describes the manner in which we collect, use, disclose, and protect the personal information of our customers, application users and website users (“you”). This Privacy Policy applies to the personal information we collect through your use of the Azingo application or the Azingo website at https://www.azingo.com (jointly, the “Platform”), through your interactions with our advertisements on third-party websites or that you otherwise provide us.  

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices for collecting, processing, and disclosing your information. We will only use your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy except where otherwise permitted or required by applicable law. By visiting our Platform or providing us with personal information, you consent to the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is to be read in conjunction with the Azingo Terms of Service located at https://www.azingo.com/terms (the “Agreement”) and are incorporated by reference therein. Undefined capitalized terms used herein have the same meanings as such terms are given in the Agreement.

1. What Information Does Azingo Collect?
The types of information we collect depends on the nature of your interaction with us. We may collect and use several types of information from and about you, including:  

Personal information. Privacy laws in Canada generally define “personal information” as any information about an identifiable individual, which includes information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person. Personal information may be collected online when you voluntarily register with us or update your existing profile with us, purchase products or services, sign up for newsletters or emails, use chat or telecommunication features, enter contests or other promotional opportunities or interact with our advertising on third-party websites. Here are the types of personal information we may collect when you navigate the Platform:  

Contact information. For example, your name, postal address, telephone number, email address and login credentials. In certain circumstances, we may request a video call during which we may request to verify your identification with a driver’s license or similar card and to verify your credit card.  
Your personal preferences. For example, preferences based on previous transactions and page interaction information (including the timing, frequency and pattern of use) and marketing consent.
Your transaction information. For example, products and services purchased, delivery addresses, methods of payment, amounts paid and card details.   Technical information. For example, IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating systems and platforms, referral source, length of visit on the Platform, page views and website navigation paths.  
Other information you provide us. For example, information contained in or relating to any communication that you send to us or send through the Platform (including the communication content and metadata associated with the communication) or any other personal information that you choose to send to us.

Non-personal information. Azingo also creates and collects “non-personal information.” This is information that is not associated with or linked to your personal information, including information that has been aggregated or otherwise anonymized so that it no longer relates to an identifiable individual. Azingo may use, disclose, transfer, and retain non-personal information for any purpose and in any manner whatsoever. If non-personal information is combined with personal information, then the non-personal information will be treated as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.  

2. How does Azingo Collect Information?
Azingo uses different methods to collect your information, including through:  

Direct Interactions with You. We collect information you directly provide us by, for example, filling in forms or corresponding with us by email.  
Cookies. The Platform uses “cookies”, a tiny element of data that our Platform sends to your browser, which may then be stored in a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer to recognize future visits using that browser. Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the Platform. For example, the information provided through cookies is used to recognize you as a previous user of the website, to offer personalized web page content and to track your activity on the website (such as the items in your shopping cart). Our Platform will automatically issue cookies when you visit our Platform unless you adjust the applicable settings on your browser to refuse cookies. However, if you refuse to accept cookies, you may be unable to access certain parts of our website.  
Website Tracking Tools. We may use web beacons or pixel tags to compile statistical information, for example, regarding website user demographics, preferences and traffic patterns.  
Social Networking Platforms. We may offer you the opportunity to engage with our content on or through third-party social networking websites, plug-ins, and applications. When you engage with our content on or through third-party social networking websites, plug-ins, and applications, you may allow us to have access to certain information associated with your social media account (for example: name, username, email address, profile picture, gender) to deliver the content or as part of the operation of the website, plug-in or application.  

3. Interest-Based (behavioural) Advertising and Third Parties
Interest-Based (behavioural) Advertising. We or third parties such as ad networks and other advertising companies may serve advertisements on the Platform and on other websites. We or those third parties may use cookies, tracer tags or web beacons to report certain information about your visits to the Platform and other websites, such as web pages you visit and your responses to ads, in order to measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns, better understand our users and to deliver ads that are more relevant to you, both on and off the Platform. You can opt-out of having your information used by participating companies for online behavioural advertising purposes by using the opt-out tool created by the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada or the opt-out tool created by the Network Advertising Initiative. Please note that if you choose to opt-out you must opt-out on each web browser on each computer, mobile device and tablet you use. If you opt-out of receiving interest-based ads, you will continue to receive ads, but they will not be tailored to you.

Analytics. The Platform uses web analytics services such as Google Analytics. Such service providers use cookies to help us analyze how visitors use the Platform. For example, with Google Analytics, the information generated by the cookie about your use of the Platform (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored on a Google server. Google uses this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Platform, compiling reports on Platform activity for us and providing us with other services relating to Platform activity and internet usage. You can prevent the storage of data relating to your use of the Platform (including your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. You can also obtain additional information on Google Analytics’ collection and processing of data and data privacy and security at the following links:   https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites https://support.google.com/analytics/topic/2919631

Links to Third Party Websites. Our website may contain links to other third-party websites or internet resources which are provided solely for your convenience and information. As will be evident, when you click on one of those links, you will be leaving Azingo’s Platform and going to the third party’s website. Any information provided to such third party is governed by their privacy policies, which you may read on the applicable site. Azingo has no responsibility or liability for, or control over, the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information by those third-party websites or internet resources.

5. How Azingo Shares Personal Information

With affiliates. Azingo may share personal information amongst our corporate affiliates.  
With suppliers and service providers. Azingo may disclose your personal information to Azingo’s suppliers and service providers who perform services on our behalf such as the provision of payment processing services, customer communications, data storage, data processing, data management, advertising, marketing or fraud detection. When we do use an outside company, we use contractual or other appropriate means to ensure that your personal information is used in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.  
With Third Party Providers. Azingo may disclose your personal information to Third Party Providers in connection with your purchase or use of Third Party Services.

We do not disclose data about identifiable individuals to advertising networks, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users. For more information, see “3. Interest-Based (behavioral) Advertising and Third Parties”.  With any successor to all or part of our business. Azingo may disclose your personal information in connection with a proposed or actual business transaction, such as a corporate reorganization, merger or acquisition, or the sale of some or all of Azingo’s business or assets (including in connection with a bankruptcy proceeding), but Azingo will require that the information recipient agree to protect the privacy of your personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.  
With legal authorities. Azingo and its service providers may disclose your information as permitted or required to comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request, in accordance with applicable law.  
Other. We may disclose your personal information as required or permitted by applicable law, to prevent fraud or criminal activity, to protect the rights and interests of Azingo and to safeguard the security of our customers, Azingo and others.  All our Platform financial transactions are handled through our payment services provider, Stripe. You can review Stripe’s privacy policy at https://stripe.com/en-ca/privacy. We will share information with our payment services provider only to the extent necessary for the purposes of processing payments you make via the Platform, refunding such payments and dealing with complaints and queries relating to such payments and refunds.

6. Retention, Location, and Protection of Personal Information  
Azingo retains your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy or such longer retention period as may be required or permitted by applicable legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. Under some circumstances, we may anonymize your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you. We reserve the right to use such anonymous and de-identified data for any legitimate business purpose without further notice to you or your consent.  

We may process, store, and transfer your personal information in and to a foreign country, such as the United States, with different privacy laws that may or may not be as comprehensive as Canadian law. In these circumstances, law enforcement or regulatory agencies of that country may be able to obtain access to your personal information in accordance with the laws of the foreign country. Whenever we engage a service provider, we require that its privacy and security standards be at least substantially equivalent to this Privacy Policy and applicable Canadian privacy legislation.  

Azingo employs safeguards, including organizational, technical, and physical measures, appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in its possession or under its control to protect that information from unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, disposal or similar risks. [For example, we store all the personal information you provide on our secure (password- and firewall-protected) servers and all electronic financial transactions entered through our application are protected by encryption technology.] While Azingo uses reasonable efforts to protect your information, no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure, and therefore, Azingo cannot guarantee absolute security of your personal information.  

7. Accuracy, Access to Personal Information and Withdrawing Consent
By law you have the right to request access to and to correct the personal information that we hold about you. You may review, verify or correct your Azingo account information through Azingo’s Platform. You may also contact us using the information provided below under “9. Contact Us” to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us.  

We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and your right to access and provide you with the personal information that we hold about you or make your requested changes. Applicable law may allow or require us to refuse to provide you with access to some or all of the personal information that we hold about you, or we may have destroyed, erased, or made your personal information anonymous in accordance with our record retention obligations and practices. If we cannot provide you with access to your personal information, we will inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions. Examples of such exceptions include: information protected by solicitor-client privilege, information that is part of a formal dispute resolution process, information that is about another individual that would reveal their personal information or confidential commercial information or information that is prohibitively expensive to provide.  

Where you have provided your consent to the collection, use, and transfer of your personal information, you may have the legal right to withdraw your consent under certain circumstances.
