  • Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.
  • We will collect and use personal information solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by law.
  • Any personal data we collect will never be shared nor sold to a third party. 
  • We will retain personal information only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes outlined to you.
  • We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.

  1. What Information does the Bears’ Lair collect and how is it used?

At Bears’ Lair, we collect two types of information: personal information and non-personal information. With your consent, we may use your personal information for a number of different purposes, for example to:

  • Fulfill requests for services, products or information
  • Provide excellent customer service
  • Offer new products and services
  • Administer contests, competitions  or promotions
  • Measure and improve the effectiveness of our website or our marketing endeavors
  • Enhance our products and services according to your preferences.

We may also collect and summarize customer information in a format that no longer identifies the individual for statistical purposes. Personal information typically includes your name, address, phone number, and email address. 

You can always choose not to provide us with any of your personal information. However, if you make this choice we may not be able to provide you with the full product, service, or information that you requested. Non-personal information does not identify you as an individual. For example, we may ask you for your postal code or zip code to assist us with event planning.

  1. Your Implied Consent

In some cases, your consent is implied if we ask you to provide personal information with a stated purpose. For example, we can only send newsletters if you provide us with a valid email address or send products if you provide us with your mailing address and a contact phone number.

  1. Your Express Consent

In other cases, we will ask you to give your express consent to use any profile pictures, testimonials or research comments on our site, reports or other marketing materials. We will also ask you to give us your express consent to inform you of products or services that may be of interest. You always have the opportunity to “opt out” of having your information used for this purpose. 

  1. Withdrawing Your Consent

If you have “opted in” or subscribed to one of our information sources, we will always provide you with the opportunity to “opt-out” or unsubscribe. For example, any newsletter we send you will include links to ‘unsubscribe’ to tell you how to decline further emails.

Cookies enhance the convenience and use of the website.

  • 6.4 Tracking Information

We may use non-personal information to compile tracking information reports regarding website user demographics, website traffic patterns, and website purchases, and then provide those reports to advertisers and others. None of the tracking information in the reports can be connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users. We may also link tracking information with personal information voluntarily provided by website users. Once such a link is made, all of the linked information is treated as personal information and will be used and disclosed only in accordance with this policy.
