Our responsibility to protect your personal information
Creed Canada is responsible for the protection of your personal information collected through our online store, our offices, as well as our program activities. This responsibility extends when personal information is transferred to or collected by third parties on our behalf.
Our obligation to identify the purposes for collecting personal information
Before we collect any personal information from you, we will identify the purpose for the collection. A statement of purposes will be communicated wherever possible. * Creed Canada uses Google Site Stats to collect anonymous user information and make improvements to our website.
The requirement for knowledge and consent
We will only collect personal information with your knowledge and consent, except in limited situations as permitted by law. This may be with your express consent (for example, where you voluntarily provide information on a form for purposes you clearly understand and agree to) or by declining an opportunity to opt-out of our collection or use of your personal information.
Opt-out consent will be used only for non-sensitive information where we believe that the privacy impacts are low and you will be provided with sufficient notice of your right to opt-out of such uses.
Further, you can withdraw your consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information at any time, subject to any legal requirements and reasonable notice. (1)
(1) A decision to withhold some personal information may influence the ability of Creed Canada to provide you with services.

Our responsibility to ensure the accuracy of your personal information

Our responsibility to safeguard your personal information

We are open about our policies and procedures. We make reasonable efforts to inform individuals about our policies and procedures, the purposes for which we collect, use or disclose personal information, and how to access your personal information.
Your right to access your personal information
Upon request, we will inform you if we hold any personal information about you and provide you with access to this information. If we have any personal information about you, we will also tell you for what purposes it is used or disclosed.
You have a right to update any personal information that we hold on you.
