We make the Website, www.MeatMix.ca (after this referred to as the “Website”) available together with our services as further described in our Terms of Use (after this called the “Services”).

Except as outlined in this Privacy Policy, your Personal Information will NOT be used for any purpose without your permission. We will not actively collect Personal Information for marketing or sale in a way that specifically identifies you, the individual. In other words, we do not sell customer lists in any way or form. You may withdraw your consent from your Personal Information to be used at any time. Though, withdrawing your consent may affect your ability to continue using our Website and/or our Services.

Collection of Information:

Only information that is required to manage your account, to provide the Services, to maintain our customer/visitor lists, to respond to your inquiries or provide feedback for identification, authentication purposes and service improvement as it relates to the company itself, will be collected, used and disclosed.

This Privacy Policy does not extend to the collection, use or disclosure of the following information which is currently not limited by applicable privacy laws, namely Non-Personal Information (please see further definition of this below).

The first type of information we collect is “Personal Information” which refers to the information about an identifiable individual, i.e. your name, address, email address, credit card information, birth date and gender. We shall identify the data being collected and the purposes for which it will/may be used at the time of collection.

Certain requested Personal Information is required to register to use the Website or Services or be able to access and use the Website or Services at all. Providing Personal Information is your choice, and you can decide whether to provide or not. However, by not providing certain information, you may not be able to register and or use the Website or Services at all. In some instances, it may also mean that you will not be able to use only certain features of the Website or Services. We may collect Personal Information in respect of the Website through the registration process, communications with you ( email, phone, etc. ), purchases, surveys, and user support.

The second type of information we collect is: “Non-Personal Information” which refers to the information of an anonymous nature that is not capable of being linked to an identifiable individual, such as the domain used to access the Website, IP Address ( Internet Protocol Address ) and the type and version of browser or operating system being used by visitors to the Website when the foregoing is not linked to a specific individual.

Collective information, such as a count of visitors, what page(s) users access or visit, demographic statistics of our users (such as average age or the geographical location of our users/visitors, as examples) and average time spent on the Website are not considered Personal Information. Likewise, business contact information such as the name, title, business address, or telephone number of a business or professional person or an employee of an organisation is not considered Personal Information. Even though the use of certain Non-Personal Information collected, used or disclosed through the Internet as described herein is not restricted, we provide information in this Privacy Policy about the collection of such information for the sake of transparency to our customers, visitors, and customers concerning the operation of the Website.
