BY USING THE SERVICELAB WEB SITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS STATEMENT, PLEASE DISCONTINUE USE OF THIS SITE IMMEDIATELY.
What is “personal information”?
Personal information is information about you that allows you to be identified. Your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number are examples of personal information. However, the name, address and telephone number of an individual listed in a telephone directory and accessible to the public do not fall under the definition of “personal information”, as they are publicly accessible. Furthermore, in certain cases, some of this information may constitute commercial information which is not covered by this Declaration.
Collection of personal information
We do not automatically collect personal information from visitors to Servicelab Websites. Personal information is only obtained online if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, entering a contest online, submitting a request via contact form, responding to online surveys, participating in a blog or forum, providing feedback, or subscribing to Web services. You are not required to provide any personal information to view the content of an Servicelab Website. Also, please be aware that when you share personal information in public areas of an Servicelab Web Site, that information may be seen and used by other users. We encourage you to exercise discretion when sharing personal information in such areas.
If you choose not to provide us with personal information online, no material consequences will result, although you may not be able to participate in certain promotional offers, receive product information, or use those portions of an Servicelab Web Site that require personalized information or applications.
We may use software that receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that has contacted the Servicelab website. We make no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting our Website.
We may also use service providers to serve third-party advertisements on the Servicelab Website or Servicelab advertisements on other websites. When serving such advertisements, these service providers may place “cookies” on your computer’s browser and collect certain anonymous information about your visits to other websites or to the Servicelab Website. This information may include browser type, IP address, domain name and web page name from which you linked to such sites, your web activity and time of day. This information is used to better understand and optimize online advertising campaigns.
From time to time, we analyze traffic and use the Servicelab Web Site to determine what features and services people like and don’t like, so we can improve what we do. We prepare aggregated statistics or summaries of information to describe our services to third parties such as potential business partners and advertisers and for other lawful purposes.
Use and sharing of personal information
Generally, we collect and use personal information to administer our products, services, contests, promotions, surveys, reward programs and other services, to understand our customers’ reactions, needs and preferences, and for the general management of our business. Examples of use include, but are not limited to:
- To process and fulfill orders, merchandise returns and gift cards placed online and in our stores;
- To create your account and provide you with services offered on our website such as the Wish List and Gift Registry;
- To send you email updates on Servicelab events and promotions;
- To manage contests and promotions;
- To help us get to know you better so that we can personalize and improve our service offering as much as possible to meet our customers’ needs;
- To respond to your questions, comments and observations. Maintaining a good relationship with our customers and hearing your comments are of paramount importance to us;
- To process and respond to your job applications.
We may also use third-party application services to send and manage e-mail and other communications (e.g. SMS) when requesting information, making purchases or reservations initiated by the user of our Web Site.
We may also use personal information to communicate marketing or promotional material about our products, programs and services to our customers or suppliers, or to assist our front-line staff in making personalized offers to our customers. We may exchange or merge personal information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.
We may disclose personal information to our agents or contractors in connection with the services they perform for us. Our agreements with these agents and contractors stipulate that this information may only be used for the purpose for which it was communicated to them and that our agents and contractors must manage personal information in accordance with this Declaration. Some of our agents and contractors are located outside Canada and are therefore subject to foreign laws that may require disclosure of personal information to government agencies in their country.
We may offer you the opportunity to participate in our content on or through third-party social networking sites, plug-ins and applications. When you participate in our content on or through third-party social websites, “plug-ins” and applications, this allows us to access certain information contained in your social media accounts (e.g., your name, username, email address, profile, gender) to deliver the content or as part of the operation of the website, plug-in or application. When you provide us with personal information through your social media accounts, we may use that information to personalize your experience on third-party websites and third-party networking sites, plug-ins and applications and thereby offer you products or services you may need.
By providing us with your personal information, you consent to our collection, use and disclosure of that information as described in this Statement as it may be amended from time to time, or as described prior to or at the time of collection, use or disclosure, as the case may be. If you do not want your personal information collected, used or disclosed in this manner, please :
- Refrain from providing us with personal information;
- Exercise the opt-out option described above or offered at the time of collection; or
- Refrain from following the consent procedure described above or proposed at the time of collection of your information.
If you have submitted personal information to us and wish to withdraw your consent to its retention, use or disclosure, please send an e-mail to our Privacy Officer listed at the bottom of this page. You may withdraw your consent at any time upon reasonable notice and subject to any legal or contractual restrictions that may apply. If you withdraw your consent, we may no longer be able to provide you with certain products or services.
Where permitted or required by law, we may collect, use or disclose your personal information without your consent, for example, to collect a debt you owe us, to comply with a lawful request from a government agency or to comply with a court order.
Safeguards and retention of information
We use physical, organizational and technological safeguards to protect your personal information against theft and loss, as well as unauthorized access, use, disclosure and destruction. As a general rule, you can visit the Servicelab website without disclosing any personal information about yourself. However, since electronic data transmission is never completely secure, we do not guarantee the security of any personal information you submit online, which you do at your own risk.
Access and contact
Upon written request, Servicelab will provide you with access to your personal information, subject to certain exceptions provided by applicable legislation. If you notice any errors or omissions in your personal information, please inform us in writing and we will promptly make the necessary corrections, if any. If you have any concerns about this Privacy Statement, the security of your personal information or our compliance with applicable privacy legislation, please send a brief written explanation of your concerns to our Privacy Officer at the following address:
