Welcome to our Privacy Policy. (Updated May 2020).

Your privacy is critically important to us.

Who We Are

Exit Matters is located in Waterloo, Ontario and you can reach Jennifer Davis, our Exit Matters’ Privacy Officer at jennifer@exitmatters.com or you can call (226) 791-8367.  

It is Exit Matters’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. This Privacy Policy applies to www.exitmatters.com (hereinafter, “us”, “we”, or “www.exitmatters.com”). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.   

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and Conditions (below) posted on our Website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

Website Visitors  

Like most website operators, Exit Matters collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Exit Matters’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Exit Matters’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Exit Matters may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.  

Exit Matters also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://www.exitmatters.com blog posts. Exit Matters only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

Security 

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Links to External Sites

Our Service may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party’s site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit. While not an exhaustive list, please also see also our list of Third-Party Plugins (below).

We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.

Aggregated Statistics 

Exit Matters may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. Exit Matters may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Exit Matters does not disclose your personally-identifying information.

Cookies

To enrich and perfect your online experience, Exit Matters uses “Cookies”, similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content, appropriate advertising and store your preferences on your computer. 

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Exit Matters uses cookies to help Exit Matters identify and track visitors, their usage of https://www.exitmatters.com, and their website access preferences. Exit Matters’ visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Exit Matters’ website, with the drawback that certain features of Exit Matters’ website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Exit Matters does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below (and see also additional details in the WooCommerce section below). And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Third-Party Plugins


WooCommerce

We collect information about you during the checkout process on our store.

What We Collect and Store

While you visit our site, we’ll track:

  • Products you’ve viewed: we’ll use this to, for example, show you products you’ve recently viewed
  • Location, IP address and browser type: we’ll use this for purposes like estimating taxes and shipping
  • Shipping address: we’ll ask you to enter this so we can, for instance, estimate shipping before you place an order, and send you the order!

We’ll also use cookies to keep track of cart contents while you’re browsing our site as noted (above) in the Cookies section.

When you purchase from us, we’ll ask you to provide information including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address, phone number, credit card/payment details and optional account information like username and password. We’ll use this information for purposes, such as, to:

  • Send you information about your account and order
  • Respond to your requests, including refunds and complaints
  • Process payments and prevent fraud
  • Set up your account for our store
  • Comply with any legal obligations we have, such as calculating taxes
  • Improve our store offerings
  • Send you marketing messages, if you choose to receive them

If you create an account, we will store your name, address, email and phone number, which will be used to populate the checkout for future orders.

We generally store information about you for as long as we need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it, and we are not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we will store order information for 7+ years for tax and accounting purposes. This includes your name, email address and billing and shipping addresses.

We will also store comments or reviews, if you choose to leave them.

Who on our Team has Access
Members of our team have access to the information you provide us. For example, both Administrators and Shop Managers can access:

  • Order information like what was purchased, when it was purchased and where it should be sent, and
  • Customer information like your name, email address, and billing and shipping information.

Our team members have access to this information to help fulfill orders, process refunds and support you.

What we share with others

We share information with third parties who help us provide your orders and store services to you; for example — when you order an item and we process it for shipment, the third party that processes and ships will see your address and may be asked to know how much the item/s cost if shipping insurance is required.

We do use basic analytics that come with WordPress and WooCommerce and Mailchimp.

We accept payments through PayPal. When processing payments, some of your data will be passed to PayPal, including information required to process or support the payment, such as the purchase total and billing information. Please see the PayPal Privacy Policy for more details.

Really Simple SSL and Really Simple SSL add-ons do not process any personal identifiable information, so the GDPR does not apply to these plugins or usage of these plugins on your website. You can find their privacy policy here.
