Others working for BILSI. BILSI uses certain trusted third parties (“Third Party Providers”) to help us provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services. These Third Party Providers will access your information only to perform tasks on our behalf and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and will not share any of your personal information for any other purpose without your prior consent. We use contracts and other measures with our Third Party Providers to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal information and to endeavour to prevent personal information from being used for any other purpose, including for any advertising or other commercial purposes. These Third Party Providers include: (i) companies that help us process the transaction that you have requested; (ii) companies we disclose your credit card information number that screens for lost and stolen card numbers;

However, you should know that Third Party Providers performing services on our behalf may store, transfer and process personal information on servers located outside of Canada in countries (including the United States) whose data protection laws differ from those of the Canada. As a result, your personal information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions. For example, information may be shared in response to valid demands or requests from government authorities, courts and law enforcement officials in those countries. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require our Third Party Providers to maintain protections on personal information that are equivalent to those that apply in Canada.

Legal Requirements. Further, we reserve the right to disclose any personal information as needed if such information is requested by law enforcement agencies that possess warrants or if we are requested to do so by law, regulation, court order, or by a government entity. We may also disclose your personal information to third parties if we have reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to: (i) conduct investigations of possible breaches of law; (ii) cooperate in any legal investigation; (iii) identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Use; or (iv) to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property.

4.    Links to Other Websites The Services may contain links to websites that are independently owned and operated by third parties. These other websites may have their own privacy policies and are not governed by this Privacy Policy. BILSI is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any website(s) owned and operated by any such subsidiaries, affiliates or third parties. Other websites may collect and treat personal information collected differently, so we encourage you to carefully read and review the privacy policy for each website you visit.

5.    How we protect your personal information The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards (appropriate to the sensitivity of such information) designed to protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access of the personal information that we collect on the Sites. We have a team dedicated to keeping your information secure and testing for vulnerabilities. We also continue to work on features to keep your information safe in addition to things like two-factor authentication, encryption of files at rest, and alerts when new devices and apps are linked to your account.

The security of your Shipllama account also relies on your protection of your Shipllama account password. You may not share your Shipllama password with anyone. Shipllama will never ask you to send your password or other sensitive information to us in an e-mail, though Shipllama may ask you to enter this type of information on the Shipllama website, which will always have a URL beginning with https://shipllama.com/. The padlock icon found in most browsers will appear locked and the first characters of the website address will change from “http” to “https” if you are accessing a secure server.

Any e-mail or other communication requesting your password, asking you to provide sensitive account information via e-mail, or linking to a website with a URL that does not begin with https://shipllama.com/ should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and should be reported to BILSI immediately. If you share your Shipllama password with a third party for any reason, including because the third party has promised to provide you additional services such as account aggregation, the third party will have access to your account and personal information, and you may be responsible for actions taken using your password. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your account password, please change it immediately by logging into your account and changing your profile settings.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.

You may have also opted in to receive future promotional communications from us. If you opt-in to receive such communications, we may use the information to: communicate with you regarding our products, services and promotions; provide you with other information that you request; and/or improve our product and service offerings. You will always have the opportunity to “unsubscribe” from receiving any of our e-mail or other communications at any time. We provide an on-going opportunity to unsubscribe or opt-out of contact by us by accessing our web-site, or by e-mail to unsubscribe@shipllama.com or by telephoning 1-800-663-8891. Additionally, each e-mail includes an opt-out feature and instructions on how to un-subscribe if you do not wish to receive future e-mails from us for these purposes.

If you opt out of receiving email from us, we will only contact you for the purposes allowed under applicable law and to send you notices of changes to our Privacy Policy.

7.    Retention We’ll retain information you store on our Services for as long as we need it to provide you the Services and to fulfill the purposes for which it was disclosed in accordance with BILSI’s retention policy. If you delete your account, we’ll also delete this information. Please note: (1) there might be some latency in deleting this information from our servers and back-up storage; and (2) we may retain this information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements.

If you decide to close your BILSI account, your account information will be kept in our database for up to seven years. This is necessary in order to deter fraud, by ensuring that persons who try to commit fraud will not be able to avoid detection simply by closing their account and opening a new account and cover requirements of CBSA. However, if you do close your BILSI account, your personal information will not be used by us for any further purposes, nor sold or shared with third parties. Accessing and Changing Your Information
