Google’s analytical procedures
Targeted or interest-based advertising are programs that display advertisements based on information about your online activities, such as the measurements you take when visiting the website. This information helps us understand your interests so that we can display advertisements that you may enjoy and not waste your time with advertisements that are not of interest to you. We use third party technologies, including their own social media platforms, to show you targeted advertisements.
We use the advertising platforms of Facebook and other companies to promote interest-based ads to you and to measure how users interact with those ads. We do this by using web tracking tools to convert the email address, phone number, or other contact information you provide to us into a unique value that these platforms can compare to a unique value created from the information you provided to them. Also, some of this data is used to help identify other people with similar demographics who might also enjoy watching these ads. The data remains anonymous. Please visit Facebook for information on Facebook’s advertising privacy policies and how to opt out https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. If you no longer wish to receive our targeted ads, please change your social media advertising settings and use the option to unsubscribe in the ad.
In order for us to provide our products and services to you, we need the help of third parties. Epoxy Online (Epoxy & Co. Canada) may use and share your personal information with affiliated and unaffiliated third parties (partners, service providers, agencies, and other organizations) for the purposes of assisting:
- Process payments and verify credit card details
- Provide customer service
- Store and secure data
- Contribute to promotional, advertising and marketing initiatives
We may share personal information with a government, regulator or law enforcement agency based on requests from those agencies, if disclosure is required or permitted by law. We may also do so to protect Epoxy Online (Epoxy Inc. Canada) or its employees or customers, to take action regarding illegal activity or breach of terms, or as otherwise required or permitted by law.
We employ reasonable security measures to protect personal information against loss, unauthorized use, access, tampering, modification, disclosure or destruction, whether physical, organizational and technological.
If we use external service providers, we require them to use safeguards similar to ours. We also ask them to limit access to your personal information and to keep it strictly confidential. These providers may only use your personal information for the purposes for which it was collected.
