We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. Please read the following carefully.
What information do we collect about you
We collect and process the following data about you (‘your information’):
Verifying you age
As this Website relates to vaping and vaping products, users of the Website must be adults who have reached the legal age to purchase vaping products in their jurisdiction of residence (i.e. 18 or 19 years of age, depending on the province). Before you can purchase Vype products from the Website, create a Vype account or subscribe to Vype news, offers and information, we must verify your age.
We use a third party to verify your age by confirming that the date of birth you provide to us matches the date of birth on your credit file (but we do not obtain any credit-related information from you).
Any verification check with a consumer reporting agency will be registered as a ‘soft inquiry’ on your credit report. A soft inquiry means that the search was not made for lending purposes and it is only included on your credit report so that you know the search was made. It does not affect your credit rating or score.
What we do with the information we collect about you
We use your Personal Information in the following ways:
If you are an existing customer or you have made a sales inquiry, we may contact you by email / telephone / mail with Vype news, offers and information about products and services that are similar to those we previously provided to you, unless you have indicated that you do not want to hear from us.
You can manage your communication preferences on the Vype Subscription Preference page or with the relevant checkbox during the order process. You may ask us at any time not to use your information for marketing purposes or unsubscribe from our communications by contacting us at email@example.com.
