III. HOW WE USE AND SHARE INFORMATION

Personal Information:

In general, we do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share your Personal Information with third parties without your consent. We may share your Personal Information with vendors and other third-party providers who are performing services for the Company. In general, the vendors and third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide for the Company. For example, when you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery, or return a purchase, you consent to our collecting and using such personal information for that specific purpose, including by transmitting such information to our vendors (and their service providers) performing these services for the Company. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment processors, have their own privacy policies in respect of the information that we are required to provide to them in order to use their services. For these third-party service providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so that you can understand the manner in which your Personal Information will be handled by such providers. In addition, we may disclose your Personal Information if required to do so by law. We may share your personal information in other limited circumstances:

  • when necessary to protect the safety, property, or other rights of Modero, our customers, our associates, or any other person, or where otherwise required or permitted by applicable law. Examples include protecting the health or safety of customers, or addressing crimes committed on Modero property.
  • to third parties, including payment card processors and issuers for the purpose of detecting and preventing fraud on Modero properties (including our websites) and the properties of other merchants. This information may include your name and contact information, shipping information, information collected from your computer or device such as an IP address or device ID, and information about your purchase.
  • in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order (which may include lawful access by Canadian, US or other foreign governmental authorities, courts or law enforcement agencies); and
  • to other organizations when investigating a breach of an agreement or law or detecting, suppressing or preventing fraud, or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable Canadian, US or other law.

Non-Personal Information:

In general, we use Non-Personal Information to help us improve the Service and customize the user experience. We also aggregate Non-Personal Information in order to track trends and analyze use patterns of the Service.
