1. OUR POLICY
MedalBook values its customers and respects your privacy. MedalBook recognizes that it must maintain and use your personal information responsibly. We have created this Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy and security, and to advise you about the collection, use and disclosure of personal information provided through this website, by mail, telephone or otherwise. This Policy also provides you the ability to “opt-out” of providing personal information that you do not wish to provide and to access, change or remove any personal information already collected. MedalBook will not collect, use or disclose your personal information other than in this compliance with this Policy.
By providing any personal information through this website, by mail, telephone or otherwise, you hereby agree to all of the terms and conditions of this Policy and consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Policy.
You should know that Canadians have certain rights to privacy under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”), which addresses the collection, storage and use of personal information by organizations in the private sector. Additionally, Canadians have certain rights under Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”) to protection from unsolicited and malicious electronic communications.
The terms “we”, “us”, and “our” used in this Policy refer, collectively, to MedalBook and its affiliates, divisions, successors and assigns and their respective employees, mandataries and agents.

We identify the purpose for which personal information will be used typically at or before the time the personal information is collected. Our use of personal information is limited to the purposes described in this Policy, the purposes set out in the terms and conditions of any product or service in connection with which personal information was collected, purposes required by law and uses consistent with any of those purposes. As new purposes may develop over time, we may update this Policy so we encourage you to review this Policy periodically online.
MedalBook collects, uses and shares personal information for the following purposes, which involve, among other things, the activities described for each:
• Process your subscription and answer questions about the status of your subscription;
• Maintain contact with you and provide you with ongoing personalized service and help us to better understand and respond to your needs and preferences; and
• Develop, improve, market and provide our Services and manage our business.
4. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will not disclose your personal information to any non-affiliated third party without your prior consent, other than as provided below. MedalBook may use personal information without the individual’s consent under particular circumstances. These situations may include but are not limited to:
• MedalBook is obliged by law to disclose personal information to adhere to the requirements of an investigation conducted by law enforcement officials;
• An emergency exists that threatens an individuals’ life, health or personal security;
• The personal information is already publicly available; and
• Disclosure is required to investigate a breach of contract.
We want you to know that you have choices and can refuse or withdraw your consent to the collection, use or disclosure of personal information.
You have the choice simply not to submit any personal information to us, however this may limit our ability to serve you as it may prevent you from contributing and subscribing to this website. You may also choose only to submit information constituting required fields when making purchases. In the event that you have already consented to the collection, use and/or disclosure of your personal information, you may subsequently “opt-out” at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, by contacting us using the information contained in the “Contact Information” section below or selecting “Cancel My Account” on your profile page.
You are entitled to request access to, and, if necessary, correct your personal information collected by us. In order to make such a request, please contact us using the information contained in the “Contact Information” section below.
We will keep your personal information only as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Policy, or such longer period as may be required by applicable law.
6. THIRD PARTY SERVICES
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers. For example, MedalBook does not store credit card information but instead uses a third party provider to handle payment for subscriptions.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located. As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.
We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.
