What is “personal information”?
Personal information is information that identifies you as an individual. It includes, but is not limited to: a person’s name, address, phone number, e-mail address and credit card information. Personal information does not include information that is collected anonymously or demographic information not connected to an identifiable individual.
The personal information Barbara’s may collect or obtain includes but may not be limited to your name, address, phone number, email address, or gender.
How is personal information stored and how does Barbara’s keep personal information secure?
Our employees receive regular training regarding our security policy and practices and are familiar with, and expected to comply with policies designed to protect your personal information. The personal information of our Sites’ visitors is only accessible to a limited number of qualified employees who are given a password in order to gain access to the information. We audit our security systems and processes on a regular basis. Sensitive information, such as personal financial information, is protected by encryption protocols, in place to protect information sent over the Internet. While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure Site, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins, and we cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place and we will not be liable to visitors to our Sites for any such occurrences.
Personal information is subject to the laws of the country where it is stored. As Barbara’s may be storing and processing personal information in the United States or Canada, the use and disclosure of your personal information may be subject to applicable laws in both of these countries. For personal information stored in the United States this includes the USA Patriot Act, and for personal information stored in Canada this includes the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. If you have any concerns in this regard, please contact our Privacy Officer as set out below.
