Privacy policy & Terms of use

Principal Inc. (“Principal”) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate its firm commitment to privacy. It is important that you read and understand the entirety of this privacy policy before you contact Principal or interact with Principal by accessing or using this site. Last update: Apr 2, 2022

Scope and application

This Privacy Policy describes Principal’s practices with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by Principal and it applies whenever you interact with Principal, including when you visit the website www.principal.studio (the “Site”), purchase products on the Site, engage with Principal on social media, or otherwise participate in or use any programs or services Principal may offer, such as promotional activities and contests. This Privacy Policy is also established for the benefit of the members of the Principal group, its suppliers and subcontractors.

Definition of “personal information”

When used in this Privacy Policy, and consistent with applicable Canadian data protection laws, personal information means “any information about an identifiable individual”. This may include, for example, your name, birth date, address, e-mail address, purchase history, payment information, and information relating to your account with us. It may also include other types of more technical information such as website visitors’ IP addresses, browser history (pages accessed, date of access, location when accessed), but only when this information can identify you as an individual. Personal information that is aggregated and/or de-identified and cannot be associated with an identifiable individual is not considered to be personal information.

What type of personal information does Principal collect and how?

Principal limits the collection of personal information to what is reasonably required to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. Principal collects personal information directly from you, from other sources, through online technologies (such as when you are interacting with us through the Site) or otherwise with your consent or as required and/or permitted by law. Principal collects personal information in the following ways:

Directly From You

You may provide personal information to Principal by mail, by email, over the telephone, through the Site or in any other direct manner.

For example:

Principal collects the information you provide when you contact Principal with an inquiry, contact customer service (including through the chat feature on the Site), complete a satisfaction survey or contact Principal through social media.

Principal collects the information you provide when you create an account on the Site or sign up for a newsletter and when you make a purchase.

Principal collects information about your transactions on the Site, for instance when you make a purchase.

From Other Sources

Occasionally, Principal may receive personal information from other sources. In these cases, Principal receives your personal information from these other sources with your consent or if the law requires or permits Principal to do so.

Online Technologies

Principal collects information about your transactions on the Site, for instance when you make a purchase.. Principal may collect certain types of information electronically when you interact with the Site, emails, social media accounts, online advertising, or through technologies. This information helps Principal understand what actions you take on the Site and allows the Site to work correctly.

For example:

Principal may use information about your purchase on the Site to provide you with interest-based advertisements based on your purchasing profile; and

Principal may collect, combine and categorize your personal information on an aggregated basis to identify purchasing patterns to help it analyze its business activities in order to better serve customers.

The technologies and services used by Principal include:

Cookies, which are small text files that are saved on your computer when you visit a website so that information can be saved between visits, such as your login credentials or language preferences. For example, cookies allow you to log in quickly when you visit the Site.

Web beacons, and single pixel gifs, which are small image files that have information about you, such as your IP address, that can be downloaded when you visit a website or open an e-mail. This allows Principal to understand your online behaviour, monitor its email delivery, and provide you with interest-based advertising. These tools also allow Principal’s third-party tracking tools to gather information, such as your IP address, and provide this back to Principal in an anonymized, aggregate form (i.e. in a manner that prevents it from identifying you personally). Aggregate information refers to personal information compiled and expressed in a summary form where no personal identifiers are included.

Other technologies, such as analytics engines, which pull usage data from multiple sources and help manage and collect this data to use for personalization, interest-based advertising, customizing content and other methods to gain insights into Principal’s customers’ needs and preferences. For instance, Principal uses Google Analytics which allows it to see information on user website activities including, but not limited to, page views, source and time spent on the Site. This information is depersonalized and is displayed as numbers, meaning that it cannot be tracked back to individuals. You may opt out of Principal’s use of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics opt-out page.

Through these technologies, Principal may collect personal information as follows:

Third-Party Social Networks.

Third-party social networks that provide interactive plug-ins to enable social network features (e.g., to connect to Facebook) on the Site may use cookies to gather information on your use of the Site. How this collected data is used by a third party is dependent on the privacy policy of the social network, which is available on the appropriate parties’ website. Principal encourages you to review the privacy policies of third parties as well. Third parties involved may use these tracking methods such as but not limited to cookies to achieve their own business goals and purposes by relating and combining information about your usage of the Site to any other personal information they may have collected on you. Principal may also obtain and use analytical and statistical information from third-party social networks to help it measure performance and effectiveness of content displayed by Principal on social networks, for example, by measuring impressions and clicks on the content Principal promotes.

Google Ads

Principal uses Google Ads Remarketing to advertise Principal across the Internet and to advertise on third-party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to the Site. Google Ads remarketing will display ads to you based on what parts of the Site you have viewed by placing a cookie on your web browser. It could mean that Principal advertises to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on the Site or this could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a website in the Google Display Network. This cookie does not in any way identify you or give access to your computer or mobile device. The cookie is only used to indicate to other websites that you have visited a particular page on the Site, so that they may show you ads relating to that page. If you do not wish to participate in Principal’s Google Ads Remarketing, you can opt out by visiting Google’s Ads Preferences Manager.

Online Interest-based Advertising.

Principal may also allow a limited number of trusted third parties to install cookies on your hard drive from the Site. The Site may include third-party advertising and links to other websites which may be used to generate personalized advertisements. Personalized ads, sometimes referred to as interest-based or behavioral ads, are ads based upon information about you, such as your page views on the Site, your information requests or purchases on the Site. Principal does not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party sites that display interest-based ads on the Site. However, advertisers and other third parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized ad or content displayed on the Site are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards. Advertisers or ad companies working on their behalf sometimes use technology to serve the ads that appear on the Site directly to your browser. They may also use cookies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize ad content. Principal does not have access to or control over cookies or other features that advertisers and third party sites may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices. You can also generally opt-out of receiving personalized ads from third-party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada. Please visit the DAAC opt-out page for more information.

You may delete or disable certain of these technologies at any time via your browser. However, if you do so, you may not be able to use some of the features on the Site.

How Principal stores and safeguards personal information?

Principal takes the security of your personal information very seriously and are committed to protecting your privacy by using a combination of administrative, physical and technical safeguards implemented by Principal and its web hosting agency.

How Principal Protects Personal Information

Principal employs organizational, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality of personal information and to safeguard personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification, in light of, among other things, the sensitivity of the information and the purposes for which it is to be used. These measures include access restrictions, encryption, and personnel training concerning the importance of preserving the privacy, confidentiality, and security of the personal information collected. These safeguards also apply when Principal disposes of or destroy your personal information.

Please be careful whenever sending personal information to Principal electronically. Please note that transmissions over the Internet are never completed protected or exempt from error. It is the reason why Principal cannot guarantee the security of the information transmitted electronically since such transmissions are conducted at your risk and peril. More specifically, an email sent to the Site or from the Site cannot be protected. Principal recommends that you keep this in mind when you determine the nature of the information transmitted electronically. Moreover, when you use them, the protection of your login, password and other special access elements of the Site is your exclusive responsibility. Please ensure that they are kept confidential.

As a result, when your personal information is used or stored in a jurisdiction other than Canada, it may be subject to the law of this foreign jurisdiction, including any law permitting or requiring disclosure of the information to the government, government agencies, courts and law enforcement in that jurisdiction.

How Long Principal Keeps Personal Information

Nous conservons vos renseignements personnels aussi longtemps qu’il est nécessaire de le faire aux fins pour lesquelles nous les avons recueillis, sauf si la loi exige ou permet une conservation différente. Lorsque nous n’en avons plus besoin, nous détruisons vos renseignements personnels de façon sûre ou les anonymisons (de sorte qu’ils ne permettent plus de vous identifier).

Principal does not knowingly provide any personal information collected from such persons, regardless of its source, to any third party for any purpose whatsoever.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is possible that Principal nevertheless collects such information if same is provided to it.
