Privacy Policy

Nepra Foods Inc., and our corporate affiliates (referred as “Nepra”, “we”, “us” and similar terms throughout this Privacy Policy), believe that you should understand the way in which we collect, use, disclose and protect your personal information. Accordingly, this Privacy Policy describes our personal information management practices in relation to our websites, products, and services.

Personal information is any information that directly or indirectly identifies you. It does not include information that is publicly available, as defined by applicable laws. Please note that this Privacy Policy is intended for individuals located in Canada and the United States.

What Personal Information Do We Collect?

1. Information you voluntarily provide to us or authorize us to collect

We collect the information that you voluntarily provide to us, when you communicate with us or purchase our products or services. For example, when you communicate with us or sign up for any promotional material, the information we collect may include your name, email address, year of birth, province of residence, phone number and/or mailing address, depending upon the means by which you contact us, as well as the contents of any communications you send to us.

2. Information we collect from our website or digital services

We may automatically collect certain types of usage information when you visit our website, use our eCommerce applications, engage with our social media pages, emails or other digital services. We typically collect this information through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, and similar technologies like single-pixel GIFs, web beacons and Flash LSOs (collectively, “tracking technologies”). For example, we may collect information such as your domain name, browser type, operating system, IP address, web pages viewed while visiting our site or using our digital services, links clicked, length of time spent on our website, and reference website from which you accessed the site.

If you do not wish to allow tracking technologies, you may be able to disable them. Although this may provide you with enhanced anonymity, it may affect the functioning of our website or eCommerce services. However, please note that you cannot control, delete, or disable the acceptance of Flash LSOs through your web browser in the same way that you can disable cookies. For more information on Flash LSOs, or to learn how to manage your settings for Flash LSOs, go to the Adobe Flash Player Help Page.

We may collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools like Google Analytics, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the website and to understand more about the demographics of our users. In gathering this information we are able to enhance your experience when visiting our website.

We may also use social plugins on our Website, such as Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and LinkedIn. When you view a site that contains a plugin, your browser will create a direct link to the social media platform’s servers.

Please visit the social media platform’s privacy policy for more information.

Third parties may also collect information via tracking technologies when you interact with our website or purchase our products online. Third parties usually include search engines, providers of measurement and analytics services, social media networks, and advertising companies. The use of these technologies and any information about you that third parties collect using same is governed by each third-party’s specific privacy policy, not this one. Third-party advertising partners may collect information about you when you interact with their content, advertising, or services. Any access to and use of third-party links or websites is not governed by this Privacy Policy but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third-party operators. We are not responsible for the information practices of third parties.

3. Information we collect from third parties

We do not knowingly collect your personal information from a third party unless you consent.

Notwithstanding the above, we reserve the right to collect your personal information from any third party without your consent if such collection is exempted, required or permitted by applicable laws to do so. For example, we may collect your personal information without your consent from the following third parties:

  • Your authorized representative(s) (for example, your authorized agents, legal representatives or family members that you have authorized to speak to us on your behalf);
  • Organization(s) that you previously consented to collect your personal information; and
  • Public sources in which your personal information is publicly available.

If we collect your personal information from third parties that you have previously consented to collecting your personal information, we will only process that information for the specific purpose for which it was provided to us in accordance with this Policy and the policy under which that information was originally collected.

4. Information about minors

We do not knowingly collect personal information about any person under 18 years of age, unless such personal information is provided to us through the consent of the minor’s parent(s) or guardian(s). Otherwise, under no circumstances should a minor or his or her parent or guardian submit a minor’s personal information to us for any reason.

Why Do We Collect Personal Information and How Is It Used?

We primarily use the information that you provide to us to administer and deliver our products and services to you, respond to your enquiries and/or send you our promotional material (if you have signed up for it). To the extent that we receive feedback on our website, products and services, we may also use that information for internal business purposes, such as to improve the website or those products and services.

The information that is automatically collected from users of our website and digital services is used to improve visitors’ online experience and the operation of our website and digital services. This includes assessing use of the website and digital services, improving content, and troubleshooting technical difficulties and errors.

More particularly, we may use your personal information as follows:

  • Contact information: We may use your contact information to communicate with you through relevant channels such as email and chat and to answer your requests. This includes contacting you (or other necessary parties) to advise you of important safety-related information, to respond to inquiries involving our products, or to send you marketing or promotional material if you have consented to receiving same.
  • Payment information and subscription information: To administer, process and deliver our products to you and to handle contracts relating to your Nepra products, including without limitation, registrations, subscriptions, surveys, purchases, incentive programs, credit approvals and processing of payments.
  • Product use information, including use of our website and digital services: To assess the use, evaluate performance, fix performance errors, offer customer support, develop and improve our products and services.

In addition to the above, we may use your personal information when required to comply with applicable laws, to prevent fraud, abuse and credit risks or for other purposes that we may communicate to you from time to time.

Is Personal Information Shared or Disclosed?

Your personal information may be accessed by or disclosed to our employees who have a need to know such information. Such employees may include employees from the marketing department, sales department, and IT department.

We do not sell your personal information, or disclose it to any third party marketers. However, information may be shared or disclosed to third parties in the following circumstances:

1. Service Providers

There are certain services that third party service providers carry out on our behalf. Currently, the only service providers that we use that may have access to or possession of the personal information that we collect, store and process, are payment processors located in the United States or Canada that processes payments on our behalf.

Please note that some of these service providers store information in the United States and Canada, and, as such, your personal information may be accessible to foreign courts, law enforcement and national security authorities in the United States and Canada.

When we engage a third party service provider to do work for us, we ensure that their access to personal information is limited to the information needed to perform their roles. Moreover, we do not permit them to use such personal information for any other purposes. Further, we require our service providers to adhere to the same or comparable requirements as set out in this Privacy Policy.

2. Affiliated Businesses

We may transfer personal information to our affiliates and other related companies from time to time as permitted by this Privacy Policy.

3. Partners to Business Transactions

We may be involved, from time to time, in transactions to sell all or part of our business or assets or merge with other businesses (“Business Transaction”). Certain information may be relevant to such transactions, in which case we may disclose this information to other parties involved in the transaction. In such cases, the information that is shared is limited to what is necessary to accomplish the transaction, and we take appropriate steps to protect the information from improper use or disclosure. Upon completion of the transaction, your information may be transferred to the purchaser, to be used in the same manner that it was used by us.

4. When required by Law

There are circumstances where we may collect, use or disclose personal information without notice or consent when required by law or lawful authority. For example, from time to time, we may be compelled by legal action to release information (e.g., statutory reporting obligation, search warrant, court order, bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings etc.). In certain circumstances, we may also be permitted bylaw to collect, use or disclose information without the consent of the individual concerned. For example, we may disclose personal information without consent to investigate a potential breach of law or contract, to collect on a debt, or in certain emergency situations that threaten the life, health or security of an individual.

5. When you direct us to do so

From time to time, you may engage third parties who offer products or services and to whom you request that we share your personal information. If you choose to engage with such third parties, you authorize us to share your personal information about you that such third parties may request from us and agree that their use of the personal information we share will be governed by the third-parties provider’s privacy policy and not this one.

How Do We Protect Personal Information

We protect the personal information that you provide to us by limiting access to employees with a need to know the information, and selecting service providers that implement appropriate protections to safeguard the confidentiality and security of the information that they process on our behalf.

Although we take the steps outlined above to safeguard the personal information under our control,“perfect security” does not exist.

Retention of Personal Information

We generally keep personal information for only as long as it is needed to accomplish the purposes for which it was collected, unless we are permitted by law to retain the information longer for a legal or business purpose.

Consent

We will process your personal information as set out in this Privacy Policy only with your knowledge and consent, except where exempted, required or permitted by applicable laws. The form of consent may vary depending on the circumstances and the type of information being requested. Your consent may be express with clear options to say “yes” or “no”, such as by being asked to check a box to indicate your consent, or implied, such as when you provide us with your address through a form or email seeking information and we use those means to respond to your request. Your consent can also be provided by your authorized representative. Taking into account the sensitivity of your personal information, purposes of collection, and your reasonable expectations, we will obtain the form of consent that is appropriate to the personal information being processed.

By using our websites, products and services, or otherwise by choosing to provide us with your personal information, you acknowledge and consent to the processing of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as may be further identified when the personal information is collected. When we process your personal information for a new purpose, we will document that new purpose and ask for your consent again.

If you do not consent to the processing of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, please do not access or continue to use any of the websites, products, and services or otherwise provide any personal information to us.

You may refuse to provide consent or may notify us at any time that you wish to withdraw or change your consent to the processing of your personal information without penalty, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice by (i) changing your privacy preferences on your devices, (ii) deleting your account with our websites, applications, products and services and stop using or accessing our websites, applications, products and services, or (iii) opting out of the use of your personal information such as unsubscribing to any newsletter or mailing list subscription that we provide through the websites, applications, products and services. However, if you withdraw or change your consent, we may not be able to provide you with the our services through our websites, products, and services.
