This information includes your name, username, personal e-mail address, your address, your cellphone number, your occupation, place of work, your education and work history, your image, photographs, videos, gender identity, date of birth, sexual preference, location and the login information for your social media accounts (Instagram, Spotify, etc.) linked to your Heartstring account and other similar information when associated with you.

We collect personal information from you when you create an account, make a purchase, enter a contest or promotion, communicate with us using our web forms to make a request or ask a question, submit a product review, take a survey or otherwise submit personal information to us with your communication.

We will also ask you for contact information in order to ship your product to you or the recipient that you designate.

Your Account will be password protected and you will be prompted to create a password upon your registration. Once you register an Account you will be able to update your account and profile information. It is your responsibility to ensure that your Account and profile information are accurate and up to date.

Your account registration information such as your sexual preference, name and username may be made visible to other Users who view your profile page. As such, we recommend and encourage you to:

think carefully about disclosing information about yourself in the App;

the amount of personal information you decide to share on our platform is at your own risk.

Profile Verification

Upon registering an account with us, we require Users to verify their account and may ask for you to do so by asking for your phone number. We may go as far as requesting you to verify your profile information through photo or video verification. Heartstring wants to ensure that you are who you say you are, and this avoid the creation of fake Heartstrings accounts being created for malicious activities and cybercrime. This process is put in place to avoid any sort of Fraud. There is also an option to voluntary verify your account.

Payment Information and other information we collect

We receive personal information about you from other sources. For example, we will receive information from credit card processors regarding whether the credit card details you gave us have been accepted or declined.

Advertising: When using a mobile application, you may receive tailored in-application advertisements.

You may review the support materials and/or the privacy settings for the respective operating systems in order to opt-out of tailored in-application advertisements. For any other devices and/or operating systems, please visit the privacy settings for the applicable device or contact the applicable platform operator.

Location Information: When you use one of our location-enabled services (for example, when you access Services from a mobile device), we may need to collect and process information about your specific GPS location (including the latitude, longitude or altitude of your mobile device) and the time the location information was recorded, and we may use that information to customize the Services with location-based information, advertising, and features. Some of these services require your personal data for the feature to work and we associate location data with your device ID and other information we hold about you. You can stop your location information from being collected by disabling this function within the settings available on your device.
We encourage you to contact us at the contact information set forth below to update or correct your information if it changes or if the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate.

These pixel files and cookies are generally valid for a limited number of days (usually no more than 90 days) and are provided by our ad management providers. We require our ad management providers to participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada's Ad Choices Program. Click here [https://youradchoices.ca/] to visit the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada's Your Ad Choices website where you can find out more information about digital advertising and how you can opt-out of interest-based advertising.

Please note that if you opt-out of interest-based advertising you may still see advertisements from us on other websites. However, they will not be customized based on your browsing history on our Sites. In addition, we will continue to customize our offers of products and services to you when you are on our Sites unless you block cookies from our Sites. If you block cookies on our Sites, certain functions, such as the "shopping cart" will not function properly because our Sites must recognize you as you move through the checkout process.

Regarding Children and Minors

Our Sites and the services offered on our Sites are directed towards individuals that are the age of majority in Canada (18 years old or older) or their applicable jurisdiction, whichever is greater. We will not knowingly collect personal information about minors.

We do not allow minors (persons who are under the age of majority in their place of residence) to create accounts, make purchases or enter contests or promotions.

Do We Disclose Your Personal Information to Others?

We may share your personal information with our service providers that help us with our business operations. For example, we may share information about your identity with our corporate sponsors that provide discounts and services based on membership. We share information with service providers who provide us with marketing and promotional services. We require our service providers to keep your personal information secure. We also evaluate the privacy practices of all the service providers we use. By the same token, all the service providers we work with must agree to protect your Personal Information with at least the same level of protection that we do. In addition, our service providers may not use or disclose personal information for any purpose other than providing the services on our behalf unless we or they have obtained your consent.

We may transfer any information we have about you in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization or stock sale or other change in corporate control.

We may also disclose your personal information if it is necessary for us to collect a debt from you or where we have reason to believe that it is relevant to the investigation or decision to investigate a breach of the laws of Canada, a province or territory of Canada, or a foreign jurisdiction, and we are legally permitted to do so.

Law Enforcement Requests

We will disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent if we receive an order, subpoena, warrant or other legal requirement issued by a court, tribunal, regulator or other person with jurisdiction to compel disclosure of your personal information. If we receive a request from a police officer or other law enforcement agency for access to your personal information in the course of an actual or potential investigation, our policy is to require the police officer or law enforcement agency to obtain an order, subpoena or warrant, unless the information is urgently required to prevent serious bodily injury or serious damage to personal property.

Storage Outside of Canada

Your personal information may be used or stored by us or our service providers outside of Canada. We require that our service providers safeguard your personal information. However, if your personal information is used or stored outside of Canada, it will also be subject to the laws of the country in which it is used or stored and may be accessible by law enforcement agencies in that country.

You can also store information such as your home and shipping address and credit card information in order to make future purchases faster. You will also be able to review your order history, past product reviews and track shipments.

You can modify your information by logging into your account and making the requested changes.

You may also choose "close my account" and we will remove your account information from active use. Any product or service reviews will be listed as from a "former user".

If you do not re-activate your account within 30 days, we will permanently delete your account after 18 months of non-use. Please note that we still maintain information that you provided to us for audit purposes or to comply with our legal obligations.

How Do We Protect Your Personal Information?

We take administrative, technical and physical measures to safeguard your personal information against unauthorized access, unauthorized disclosure, theft and misuse. This includes limiting access of employees to, and the use of, your personal information through the use of passwords and graduated levels of clearance. We do not publish all of our security measures online because this may reduce their effectiveness. We take physical precautions to ensure that the computer servers on which your personal information is stored and archived are secure and that access to such servers is protected. We educate our employees with respect to their obligations to protect your personal information and we require our affiliates and any third-party service providers to take comparable steps to ensure the protection of any of your personal information that is shared with them.

Although we take precautions against possible breaches of our security systems, no company can fully eliminate the risks of unauthorized access to your personal information and no website is completely secure. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss or breaches of our security systems will never occur. Accordingly, you should not transmit personal information to us using our Sites if you consider that information to be sensitive, or legally privileged.

You may be able to access third-party websites through links available on our Sites. You may also connect to social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. These links are provided for your convenience. We do not have any control over those third-party Sites, and we do not provide any guarantee that the privacy practices of the hosts of those Sites meet our standards.
