Last modified: February 25, 2022

Introduction

E-Porter Inc. ("we", "us", "our") respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it by complying with this policy.

This policy describes how we collect, use, disclose, and protect the personal information of our customers and website users ("you") when you visit our website https://www.eporter.com; and through mobile and website portal applications you download, which provide dedicated application-based interaction between you and our website (collectively the "Platform").

We will only use your personal information in accordance with this policy unless otherwise required by applicable law. We take steps to ensure that the personal information that we collect about you is adequate, relevant, not excessive, and used for limited purposes.

The Platform may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins, services, social networks, or applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow the third party to collect or share data about you. If you follow a link to a third-party website or engage a third-party plugin, please note that these third parties have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. We do not control these third-party websites, and we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.

Please read this policy carefully. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Platform. By accessing or using this Platform, you indicate that you understand, accept, and consent to the practices described in this policy. This policy may change from time to time and your continued use of this Platform after we make changes indicates that you accept and consent to those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

Information we collect

We collect and use personal information that we can reasonably use to identify you directly or indirectly, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, username or other similar identifier, and account information.

Payment processing is outsourced to our payment processor, and we do not store your credit card information other than the first four and last four digits of the credit card number.

We may use your personal information to contact you for marketing or other purposes and we provide an opportunity for you to unsubscribe or opt-out of these by contacting us or using the unsubscribe mechanism.

How we collect your information

We use different methods to collect your information, including:

  • Information you provide to us. You may provide us information through direct interaction for example, by filling in forms or corresponding with us by phone, email, or otherwise; or that we collect directly from you through our Platform, for example, at the time of subscribing to our service, or requesting further services.
  • User contributions. You may also provide information for us to publish or display on public Platform areas or transmit to other Platform users or third parties.
  • Information we collect through cookies and other automatic data collection technologies. As you navigate through our Platform, information collected automatically may include usage details, IP addresses, and information collected through cookies and other tracking technologies.

  • To our subsidiaries and affiliates.

Transferring your personal information

We may transfer personal information that we collect or that you provide as described in this policy to contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business (such as analytics and search engine providers that assist us with website improvement and optimization) and who are contractually obligated to keep personal information confidential, use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them, and to process the personal information with the same standards set out in this policy.

We may process, store, and transfer your personal information in and to a foreign country, with different privacy laws that may or may not be as comprehensive as Canadian law. In these circumstances, the governments, courts, law enforcement, or regulatory agencies of that country may be able to obtain access to your personal information through the laws of the foreign country. Whenever we engage a service provider, we require that its privacy and security standards adhere to this policy and applicable Canadian privacy legislation.

By submitting your personal information or engaging with the Platform, you consent to this transfer, storage, or processing.

Data Security

The security of your personal information is very important to us. We use physical, electronic, and administrative measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure.

The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Platform. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Platform.

Data Retention

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements, except as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or regulation.

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.

Children's Privacy

Our Platform is not intended for children under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on the Platform. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on this Platform. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us.

Accessing and Correcting your personal information

It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes. By law you have the right to request access to and to correct the personal information that we hold about you.

Withdrawing your consent

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.

To withdraw your consent, if applicable, contact us.
