We use such information to offer the services of the Website, and to enhance users’ experiences on the Website. By accessing or using the Website, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, do not make a purchase, or access or use the Website, or provide us with any personal information.

II. Information We Collect

a. Information You Provide

We collect certain personal information you provide to us (such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), for example, when you register an account with us. Personal information is information that identifies or could reasonably be associated with you. You can choose not to provide us with such personal information although this may affect your ability to receive communications from us or use our Website.

b. Automated Information Collection

We receive and store certain types of information when you interact with our Website, emails, and online advertising. This may include information such as the type of Internet browser or computer operating system you are using and the domain name of the website from which you linked to the Website. We use this information to optimize our Website and the services we provide. In addition, when you view the Website, we may store some information on your computer in the form of a "cookie" or similar file. Cookies are small pieces of data which are stored on your computer to allow your Internet browser to remember something about a website.

At your option, you may turn off our cookies using the applicable features contained in your Internet browser; however, doing so may prevent you from accessing all or part of the Website.
We do not link your cookies to other personal information about you. Our Website uses Google Analytics, which is a web analytics service provided by the third party provider Google, Inc., and is used to evaluate use of our Website, visitor demographics and to develop Website content. This analytics data is not tied to any personal information. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You can opt-out of Google’s collection and processing of data generated by your use of the Website by going to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Our Website also utilizes third-party tracking tools from third-party service providers, which may enable these third parties to analyze our Website traffic for analytics purposes. Some of these third-party service providers may collect information from this Website for retargeting and interest-based advertising purposes, also known as online behavioral advertising. For more information about these forms of ad targeting and to understand your right to opt-out from these practices, please visit https://youradchoices.ca/. All of these tools are hosted by the third parties who provide them, and your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policies of the third parties providing them.

c. Social Media

We may offer you the opportunity to engage with us through third-party social networking websites, plug-ins and applications. Through these platforms, you may allow us to access information associated with your social media account. We may use this information to confirm your identity and to personalize your experience on our Website.
You are encouraged to read all policies and information on the applicable social media services to learn more about how they handle your information before using any such features made available to you through our Website. We are not responsible for any acts or omissions by any social media service provider or your use of features on their platforms.

d. Email Subscription

Where applicable, we will seek your express consent to contact you, including by way of commercial electronic emails. This consent is sought by Britebuy Inc. operating as tribeify and you can contact us at the email address or mailing address included in the Questions or Concerns section below.

III. How We Use and Disclose Your Information

We may use the information we collect to respond to your inquiry, to help us better understand your needs or how we may improve the products and services that we offer you, and to contact you in accordance with applicable law.

Your information may be shared with our agents, contractors or third-party service providers in connection with services that these individuals or entities perform for us. Our successors and assigns may collect and use your information for substantially similar purposes as described in this Privacy Policy. Except as set out in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to outside parties. We may, however, disclose your personal information in the following limited circumstances:

  • As necessary to our service providers that help us with our business operations;
  • If necessary to protect the safety or security of users of the Website, to detect and prevent fraud or abusive behaviour, or when otherwise required or permitted by law;
  • In the event that we sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of the business to an affiliate, successor, assign or other third party entity; or
  • With your consent.

Otherwise, we will not disclose your personal information to others without your consent.

IV. Security

We take our commitment to keep your data secure seriously and will take reasonable precautions to protect your personal information from access, loss, misuse or alteration. Agents, contractors or third party service providers of Britebuy Inc. who have access to your personal information in connection with providing services to us are required to keep the information confidential and must use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We keep your personal information only for as long as it is required and we destroy, delete or convert such information into an anonymous form when it is no longer required. Legal requirements, however, may require us to retain some or all of the personal information we hold for a period of time that is longer than that for which we might otherwise hold.

V. Personal Information Processed outside Canada

Please note that the personal information you provide to us may be stored, transferred or processed by us or our service providers, both inside and outside Canada. As a result, the laws of that country regarding processing of personal information may be less stringent than the laws in Canada. We will take steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated and secured in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

IX. Referrals

Our service allows you to invite your friends to sign up to refer your friends by sharing a referral link via an SMS, email or other means, or by sending invitations through Tribeify’s referral page hosted on our website. If you choose to upload your contacts to the referral program, we will receive and store those contacts’ information and use it to send invitations on your behalf when you choose to do so. When you refer someone via our refer-a-friend page, your referral will include only your name.

X. Amendments

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy, and any of our policies and procedures concerning our practices for managing personal information, at any time and without prior notice, subject to applicable law.
