We collect information on our own behalf and on the behalf of businesses and third party organizations that use the Site and/or use services offered through the Site to provide incentives, referrals and communicate to customers or potential customers (the "Program") and for our own use in connection with our operation of the Site and the Program. We also collect information directly from individuals identified as sources of potential referrals (the “Users”). The Users may also provide us with information about potential customers interested in the Site and/or purchasing goods and services directly from Gerry’s Truck Centre Ltd. and consenting to receiving further information (the “Leads”). We do not rent or sell your personal information to third party organizations for any purposes, including marketing purposes, without your express consent.
We collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you, but does not include the name, title, business address, or telephone number of an employee of an organization ("Personally Identifiable Information"). We also may collect information that by itself typically cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (e.g. age, profession or gender), user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, internet service providers, referring/exit pages, date/time stamp, operating system, clickstream data and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of our Site ("Non-Personally Identifiable Information").
Personally Identifiable Information we collect may include your name, email addresses, postal addresses, zip/postal code, prior addresses, employer, job title, income, telephone number, credit card information, bank account information and routing numbers, date of birth, gender, age, marital status, user name and password and other information either desirable or necessary to provide quality services to our customers and visitors. We may also collect information about you such as your use of the Site, Program, and communication preferences.
If you choose to use our Site as a referrer to send an email, mobile or other electronic message to tell a Lead who has voluntarily asked for a referral about our Site or our goods and services, we will ask for the Lead’s name and email address. For example, by clicking the “Referral” link, you will automatically send the Lead a one-time email, mobile or electronic message providing an electronic link to a referral, promotion, coupon, incentive and/or reward for our Site and/or one of our Business. Gerry’s Truck Centre Ltd. stores the Lead’s contact information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email (and tracking the success of our referral program). Business may be provided with Non-Personally Identifiable Information about the Lead, such as the promotion code provided to the Lead.
