FlexDealz Privacy Policy

(Last updated May 24, 2017)

This FlexDealz Privacy Policy (this “Policy”) describes the collection of personal information by FlexDealz Corporation, an Ontario, Canada corporation (“FlexDealz,” “we,” or “us”) from users of our Web site at www.FlexDealz.com (the “Website”), as well as all related applications, widgets, software, tools, and other services provided by us and on which a link to this Policy is displayed (collectively, together with the Website, our “Services”). This Policy also describes our use and disclosure of such information. By using our Services, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information in accordance with this Policy. This Policy is incorporated by reference into the FlexDealz Terms of Service and subject to the provisions of the FlexDealz Terms of Use.

FlexDealz is not a health care provider or acting on behalf of any health care provider. Any information you provide is at your own risk and not subject to protections afforded to Personal Health Information under applicable law but will be treated in accordance with this Policy.


1. Personal Information

Personal Information,” as used in this Policy, is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as an individual's name, address, telephone number, credit card information, or e-mail address. Personal Information also includes information about an individual’s activities, such as information about his or her activity on our Services, and demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic area, and preferences, when any of this information is linked to Personal Information that identifies that individual.

Personal Information does not include “aggregate” or other non-personally identifiable information. Aggregate information is information that we collect about a group or category of products, services, or users that is not personally identifiable or from which individual identities are removed. We may use and disclose aggregate information, and other non-personally identifiable information, for various purposes.


2. Collection of Information

Collection of Voluntarily-Provided Information

We collect Personal Information that our users provide to us in a variety of ways on our Services. These include the following:

  • User Accounts and Profiles. Our Services give you the ability to register for a FlexDealz account or to create and update a user profile on the applicable Service. If we offer user account or profile functionality on the Services, we will collect the Personal Information that you provide to us in the course of registering for an account or creating or updating a user profile. This information may include, for example, name, e-mail address, and related demographic information about you. We may indicate that some personal information is required for you to register for the account or to create the profile, while some is optional.
  • Events. In order to register and pay for Events offered by Vendors, each as defined in the FlexDealz Terms of Use, you must (i) create a FlexDealz account and (ii) provide your email address and credit card information to Global One Pay Inc. (“Global One Pay”), our payment processor, via a pop-up window appearing on the Service and branded with the applicable Vendor’s trademarks but hosted by Global One Pay (“Payment Window”). We do not collect the payment information that you enter in the Payment Window, but we do make and keep purchasing history records of each Event for which you register. For more information on how Global One Pay collects, uses, and discloses Personal Information you enter in the Payment Window, please review the Global One Pay Privacy Policy.
  • Integrated Services. You may be given the option to access or register for the Services through the use of your user name and passwords for certain services provided by third parties (each an “Integrated Service”), such as through the use of your Facebook credentials through Facebook Connect. By doing this, you authorize us to access and store the credentials you provide, your name, email address(es), date of birth, gender, current city, profile picture URL, and other information that the Integrated Service makes available to us, and to use and disclose it in accordance with this Policy. You should check your Facebook or other Integrated Service privacy settings to understand and change the information sent to us through Facebook Connect or other Integrated Services. Please review each Integrated Service’s terms of use and privacy policies carefully before using their services and connecting to our Services.
  • Correspondence. If you contact us by e-mail, using a contact form on the Services, or by mail, fax, or other means, we collect the Personal Information contained within, and associated with, your correspondence.
  • Contests and Sweepstakes. We or our business partners may conduct or sponsor special contests, sweepstakes, and other promotions that users may enter or otherwise participate in on our Services. Certain of these promotions may be co-branded with one of our business partners. In these instances, the collection of your Personal Information may occur directly by the third- party partner on its website or other online service and may be shared with us. The promotion will state the privacy policy or policies governing the collection of such personal information.

3. Passive Information Collection

When you visit our Services, some information is collected automatically. For example, when you access our Services, we or our third party analytics providers may automatically collect your browser’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your location, your browser type, the nature of the device from which you are visiting the Services (e.g., a personal computer or a mobile device), the identifier for any handheld or mobile device that you may be using, the Web site that you visited immediately prior to accessing any Web-based Services, the actions you take on our Services, and the content, features, and activities that you access and participate in on our Services. We or our third party email services providers also may collect information regarding your interaction with e-mail messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message.

We may collect this information passively using technologies such as standard server logs, cookies, and clear GIFs (also known as “Web beacons”). We use passively-collected information to administer, operate, and improve the Website and our other services and systems, and as otherwise set forth in this Policy. If we link or associate any information gathered through passive means with Personal Information, or if applicable laws require us to treat any information gathered through passive means as Personal Information, we treat the combined information as Personal Information under this Policy. Otherwise, we use and disclose information collected by passive means in aggregate form or otherwise in a non-personally identifiable form.

Also, please be aware that sites or services provided by third parties (“Third-Party Sites”), such as our third party analytics providers, may be embedded into or linked to from the Services, may set cookies on your hard drive, or use other means of passively collecting information about your use of their services, Third-Party Sites or content. We do not have access to, or control over, these third-party means of passive data collection.


4. Information from Other Sources

We may receive information about you, including Personal Information, from third parties, and may combine this information with other Personal Information we maintain about you. If we do so, this Policy governs any combined information that we maintain in personally identifiable format.


5. Use of Personal Information

We use Personal Information to provide services and information that you request; to enhance, improve, operate, and maintain our Services, our programs, services, Web sites, and other systems; to prevent fraudulent use of our Services and other systems; to prevent or take action against activities that are, or may be, in violation of our Terms of Use or applicable law; to tailor content, and other aspects of your experience on and in connection with the Services; to maintain a record of our dealings with you, including a history of your Event purchases; for other administrative purposes; and for any other purposes that we may disclose to you at the point at which we request your Personal Information, and pursuant to your consent.

Global One Pay, our payment processing service provider, will use the information you provide in the Payment Window to process your payment of fees for Events, and as otherwise set forth in the Global One Pay Privacy Policy

We may also use Personal Information you provide to contact you regarding products, services, and offers from us that we believe you may find of interest. We allow you to opt-out from receiving marketing communications from us as described in the “Choice” section below.

However, Vendors may collect your name and other Personal Information as a Rule or other requirement prior to entering an Event, and we are not responsible for Vendors’ use of your Personal Information that you or others provide to Vendors.


7. Service Providers

We may disclose Personal Information to third-party service providers (e.g., payment processing and data storage and processing facilities) that assist us in our work, including Global One Pay, Google Analytics, and Compose.io.

Additionally, if we offer user account functionality on the Services, we may allow you to view and modify settings relating to the nature and frequency of promotional communications that you receive from us.

If you request that we delete your account on any of our Services in accordance with the FlexDealz Terms of Use we will do so within a reasonable period of time, but we may need to retain some of your Personal Information in order to satisfy our legal obligations, or where we reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so.


12. Links

The Services may contain links to other Web sites, products, or services that we do not own or operate. If you choose to visit or use any Third-Party Sites or products or services available on or through such Third-Party Sites, please be aware that this Policy will not apply to your activities or any information you disclose while using those Third-Party Sites or any products or services available on or through such Third-Party Sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these Third-Party Sites or any products or services on or through them. Additionally, please be aware that the Services may contain links to Web sites and services that we operate but that are governed by different privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies applicable to any Web site or service you visit other than the Services before providing any Personal Information on them.


13. Children

Children’s safety is important to us, and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in supervising in the online activities of their children. Our Services are not directed to persons under the age of 18, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from persons under the age of 18 without obtaining parental consent. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a person under the age of 18 on our Services, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we may have collected any such personal information on our Services, please notify us at info@FlexDealz.com.


14. International Visitors

Our servers and data centers are currently located in Canada, however that may change in the future. If you choose to use the Services from outside of Canada, then you should know that you are transferring your Personal Information outside of your region and into Canada for storage and processing. By providing your Personal Information to us through your use of the Service, you agree to that transfer, storage, and processing in Canada. Also, we may transfer your data from Canada to other countries or regions in connection with storage and processing of data, fulfilling your requests, and operating the Services. You should know that each region can have its own privacy and data security laws, some of which may be less stringent as compared to those of your own region.


15. Security

We use reasonable security measures that are designed to protect personal information from accidental loss, disclosure, misuse, and destruction. We rely on the security procedures of our third party data storage service provider, Compose.io, to protect Personal Information in our databases. Please be aware, however, that no data security measures can be guaranteed to be completely effective. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you provide to us. You transmit information to us at your own risk.


16. Updates to this Policy

We may occasionally update this Policy. When we do, we will also revise the “last updated” date at the beginning of the Policy. Your continued use of our Services after such changes will be subject to the then-current policy. If we change this Policy in a manner that is materially less restrictive of our use or disclosure of your Personal Information, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you of the change and to obtain your consent prior to applying the change to any Personal Information that we collected from you prior to the date the change becomes effective. We encourage you to periodically review this Policy to stay informed about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information.
