This Policy may be supplemented or amended from time to time by additional privacy notices (“Privacy Notices”), provided at the time we collect your information. In other cases, specific Privacy Notices may be required to comply with the privacy laws of one of the countries, provinces, or states in which we do business.
We do not collect personal information about you unless you voluntarily submit that information to us by registering an account with us or some other means. The personal information which you may provide to us could include your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address (“Personal Information”).
We may send your Personal Information to other group companies, affiliates and third parties to help us process your Personal Information for the purposes set out in this Policy. Generally, we use the information we collect through the Site in the following ways:
With Third-Party Vendors
Blistex shares information collected through the Site with third-party vendors who act for us or on our behalf. For example, we may use third-party service providers (“Service Providers”) to design and operate the Site, or to develop software applications and databases; to conduct surveys; and to help us with our promotional efforts. These Service Providers may need to have access to your personal and anonymous information in order to perform these functions on our behalf. These Service Providers may also contact you or send communications on our behalf, including, without limitation, in connection with market research studies about our products or our competitors’ products. Whenever we hire other organizations to provide support services, they will be required to conform to our privacy standards. These third parties shall respect strict contractual conditions that oblige them to maintain the confidentiality of all information and use it only for purposes related to the supply of services to us.
With Our Licensors, Manufacturers and Our Affiliates
Blistex may share the information collected through the Site with our affiliates, manufacturers and licensors (collectively “Other Parties”). Our Other Parties may use the information in all the ways listed in this Policy, provided that such use relates to services authorized by Blistex.
As Part of a Business Transfer
Your information may be transferred to a successor organization if, for example, we transfer the ownership or operation of the Site to another organization or if we merge with another organization. If such a transfer occurs, the successor organization’s use of your information will still be subject to this Policy and the privacy preferences you have expressed to us.
To Comply with Laws and Protect Our Rights and the Rights of Others
Transfers of personal information
Your personal information may be stored, processed or otherwise used by us, our affiliates or our service providers, both inside and outside of Canada. As a result, that country's courts, governments or law enforcement agencies could obtain disclosure of your information in accordance with that country's laws.
Information You Manually Provide
Blistex collects the information you manually provide (using your keyboard, mouse, or touchpad on your computer, mobile or tablet device (collectively, “Device”)) when you use the Site. For example, we collect the information you provide via e-mail and feedback/comment forms. In certain sections of the Site (e.g., "Give Us Lip", "Contact Blistex", "Bliss Flip"), we request and collect Personal Information that may be used to contact you directly to respond to questions, comments or inquiries you submit, or to contact you about a contest or sweepstakes you enter on the Site.
Information From Your Mobile or Tablet Device
Information Collected by Cookies and Similar Technologies
We use technologies to collect information and support certain features of the Site, such as cookies or other tracking technologies. For example, we may use these technologies to:
The information we collect using cookies and similar technologies is not, in and of itself, personally identifiable, but we may link it to personal information that you provide. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your Device. You can also clear your cookies at any time through your browser’s settings. Although you are not required to accept cookies when you visit the Site, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of the Site if your browser rejects our cookies.
In addition to the cookies we may deliver to your Computer or Mobile or Tablet Device through our Site, certain third parties may deliver cookies to you for a variety of reasons.

Other third parties may deliver cookies to your computer or mobile or tablet device for the purpose of tracking your online behaviors across nonaffiliated websites and delivering targeted advertisements either on our Site or on other websites.
You have choices about the collection of information by third parties on our Site. For example, if you don’t want information about your visit to our Site sent to Google Analytics, you may download an Opt-out Browser Add-on. Please note that the Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to us.
In addition, you may opt-out of having interest-based information collected by certain entities during your visits to our Site or other websites. You will be directed to an industry-developed website that contains mechanisms for choosing whether each listed entity may collect and use data for online behavioral advertising purposes. It may be that some of the third parties that collect interest-based information on our Site do not participate in the industry-developed opt-out website, in which case the best way to avoid third-party tracking of your online behaviors may be through your browser settings and deletion of cookies.
Our Site may link to third-party websites or advertisers. These third-party websites or advertisers may collect certain personal and non-personal information, including, product usage data, and general location based information.

Blistex takes reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the information we collect. We protect the personal information within our custody or control with appropriate organizational, technological and physical safeguards. Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your information against unauthorized use or disclosure, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information provided online.
We only retain personal information for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. Legal requirements, however, may require us to retain some or all of the personal information we hold for a period of time that is longer than that for which we might otherwise hold.
We cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet or stored in our databases and will not be responsible for breaches of security beyond our reasonable control.
In the event of an interception or unauthorized access, Blistex shall not be responsible for such interception or unauthorized access, or any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages (including lost profits) suffered by you, even if Blistex has previously been advised of the possibility of such damages. Blistex does not warrant, either expressly or implied, that the information provided by you shall be free from interception or unauthorized access and does not provide any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, therefore such exclusions may not apply to you.
In transmitting electronic communications to Blistex, the user of this Site is requesting that Blistex send information to or contact the user regarding our products. Blistex will make every effort to accommodate reasonable requests for information pertaining to our Site, products and services in a timely manner but makes no guarantees for the timeliness of such responses. You should be aware that Blistex is not responsible for delay, non-delivery or non-receipt of any information exchanged between Blistex and the user or vice-versa due to internet connectivity problems, man-made or natural disasters, force majeure, computer malfunctions or incorrect contact information (including but not limited to e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, telephone, cellular, pager or fax numbers) you supply.

We do not seek to, nor do we knowingly collect or use any personal information from children without explicit parental consent. We do not knowingly allow children to become subscribers, make submissions, register with us, order our products or services, communicate with us, or use any of our online services.
Where applicable, we will seek your express consent to contact you, including by way of commercial electronic messages. This consent is sought by Blistex Corp. and you can contact us at 1-800-837-1800, at 6790 Century Avenue, Suite 300, Mississauga, Ontario L5N 2V8 or email@example.com.

Even if you have opted out of receiving marketing communications from us, please be aware that we may still contact you for other purposes. For example, we may contact you to provide communications you have consented to receive, regarding the products or services we provide to you, or if you contact us with an inquiry.
We will strive to keep all personal information in our files complete, up-to-date and accurate.
You or a person authorized on your behalf has the right to request to see and obtain a copy of your personal information and to request changes or corrections to inaccurate or incomplete information. If you have such a request, please contact us using the details listed in “Contact Us” below.
We reserve the right, at our discretion, to add to, change, update, modify or remove portions of this Policy at any time.
