          • 2. Privacy for Members

              This section applies to the Personal Information we collect and process from a Member or potential Member through the provision of the Services. If you are not a Member, the Visitors section of this policy may be more applicable to you and your data. In this section, "you" and "your" refer to Members and potential Members.

              2.1. Information We Collect

              The Personal Information that we may collect broadly falls into the following categories:

              • (2.1.1) Information you provide to us: In the course of engaging with our Services, you may provide Personal Information about you and your Contacts. Personal Information is often, but not exclusively, provided to us when you sign up for and use the Services, consult with our customer service team, send us an email, integrate the Services with another website or service (for example, when you choose to connect your e-commerce account with Spreespot), or communicate with us in any other way.

                We will let you know prior to collection whether the provision of Personal Information we are collecting is compulsory or if it may be provided on a voluntary basis and the consequences, if any, of not providing the information. By giving us this information, you agree to this information being collected, used and disclosed as described in our Terms of Use and in this privacy policy. This information may include:

                • • Registration information: You need a Spreespot account to use the Services as a Member. When you register for an account, you will be asked to provide certain basic information, such as your name, email address, username, password (for example, if you are using two-factor authentication).
                • • Billing and communications information: In order to use our Services, you may also need to provide us with payment and billing information, such as your credit card details and billing address. Spreespot will also maintain a record of your billing transactions and purchases, and any communications and responses.
                • • Information we process on your behalf: In order to sell or use certain features in your account, you need to upload item information and pictures. We use and process this information to provide the Services in accordance with your instructions.
              • (2.1.2) Information we collect automatically: When you use the Services, we may automatically collect certain information about your device and usage of the Services. We use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect some of this information. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies is discussed more below, and in more detail in our Cookie Statement. This information may include:

                • • Device information: We collect information about the device and applications you use to access the Services, such as your IP address, your operating system, your browser ID, and other information about your system and connection.
                • • Log data: Our web servers keep log files that record data each time a device accesses those servers and those log files contain data about the nature of each access, including originating IP addresses. We may also access metadata and other information associated with files that you upload into our Services.
                • • Product usage data: We collect usage data about you whenever you interact with our Services, which may include the dates and times you access the Services and your browsing activities (such as what portions of the Services are used). We also collect information regarding the performance of the Services, including metrics related to the deliverability of emails and other communications you send through the Services. This information allows us to improve the content and operation of the Services, and facilitate research and analysis of the Services.
              • (2.1.3) Information we collect from other sources: From time to time, we may obtain information about you or your Contacts from third-party sources, such as public databases, social media platforms, third-party data providers and our joint marketing partners. We take steps to ensure that such third parties are legally or contractually permitted to disclose such information to us.

                • • Examples of the information we receive from other sources include demographic information (such as age and gender), device information (such as IP addresses), location (such as city and state), and online behavioral data (such as information about use of social media websites, page view information and search results and links). We use this information, alone or in combination with other information (including Personal Information) we collect, to enhance our ability to provide relevant marketing and content to you and to develop and provide you with more relevant products, features, and services.

              2.2. Use of Personal Information

              We may use the Personal Information we collect through the Services or other sources for a range of reasons, including:

              • • To bill and collect money owed to us by you. This includes sending you emails, invoices, receipts, notices of delinquency, and alerting you if we need a different credit card number. We use third parties for secure credit card transaction processing, and those third parties collect billing information to process your orders and credit card payments. To learn more about the steps we take to safeguard that data, see the "Our Security" section of this privacy policy.
              • • To send you system alert messages. For example, we may inform you about temporary or permanent changes to our Services, such as planned outages, or send you account, security or compliance notifications, such as new features, version updates, releases, abuse warnings, and changes to this privacy policy.
              • • To communicate with you about your account and provide customer support
              • • To enforce compliance with our Terms of Use and applicable law, and to protect the rights and safety of our Members and third parties, as well as our own. This may include developing tools and algorithms that help us prevent violations. For example, sometimes we review the content of our Members’ email campaigns to make sure they comply with our Terms of Use. To improve that process, we have software that helps us find email campaigns that may violate our Terms of Use. Our employees or independent contractors may review those particular email campaigns. This benefits all Members who comply with our Terms of Use because it reduces the amount of spam being sent through our servers and helps us maintain high deliverability. Email was not built for confidential information. Please do not use Spreespot to send confidential information.
              • • To meet legal requirements, including complying with court orders, valid discovery requests, valid subpoenas, and other appropriate legal mechanisms.
              • • To provide information to representatives and advisors, including attorneys and accountants, to help us comply with legal, accounting, or security requirements.
              • • To prosecute and defend a court, arbitration, or similar legal proceeding.
              • • To respond to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
              • • To provide, support and improve the Services. For example, this may include sharing your or your Contacts’ information with third parties in order to provide and support our Services or to make certain features of the Services available to you. When we share Personal Information with third parties, we take steps to protect your information by requiring these third parties to enter into a contract with us that requires them to use the Personal Information we transfer to them in a manner that is consistent with this privacy policy and applicable privacy laws.
              • • To provide suggestions to you. Some of these suggestions are generated by use of our data analytics projects, which are described below. For more information about our use of cookies and other tracking technologies for this purpose, and instructions about how to opt out of having data collected through the use of cookies, please see our Cookie Statement.
              • • For our data analytics projects. Our data analytics projects use data from Spreespot accounts, including Personal Information of Contacts, to provide and improve the Services. We use information like your selling habits and purchase history, so we can make more informed predictions, decisions, and products for our Members. If you or your Contact prefers not to share this data, you can email us at any time at support@Spreespot.com. For example, we use data from Spreespot accounts to enable product recommendation, audience segmentation, and predicted demographics features for our Members. We will act as a data controller to process data for our data analytics projects in reliance on our legitimate business interests of improving and enhancing our products and services for our Members. As always, we take the privacy of Personal Information seriously, and will continue to implement appropriate safeguards to protect this Personal Information from misuse or unauthorized disclosure.
              • • Combined information. We may combine Personal Information with other information we collect or obtain about you (such as information we source from our third-party partners) to serve you specifically, such as to deliver a product or service according to your preferences or restrictions, or for advertising or targeting purposes in accordance with this privacy policy. When we combine Personal Information with other information in this way, we treat it as, and apply all of the safeguards in this privacy policy applicable to, Personal Information.
              • • Other purposes. To carry out other legitimate business purposes, as well as other lawful purposes about which we will notify you.

              2.3. Cookies and Tracking Technologies

              We and our partners may use various technologies to collect and store information when you use our Services, and this may include using cookies and similar tracking technologies, such as pixels and web beacons. We use this information to measure performance, and to provide analytics information and enhance the effectiveness of our Services.

              Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies is discussed in more detail in our Cookie Statement.

              2.4. Other Data Protection Rights

              You and your Contacts may have the following data protection rights:

              • • To access, correct, update or request deletion of Personal Information. Spreespot takes reasonable steps to ensure that the data we collect is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete and up to date.

              • • Similarly, if Personal Information is collected or processed on the basis of consent, the data subject can withdraw their consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your Personal Information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
              • • The right to complain to a data protection authority about the collection and use of Personal Information.

              We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection law. We may ask you to verify your identity in order to help us respond efficiently to your request. If we receive a request from one of your Contacts, we will either direct the Contact to reach out to you, or, if appropriate, we may respond directly to their request.

We will notify you of the change either by sending you an email or posting a notice on our Website.

                  • (4.1.5) Any other person with your consent.

                  4.2. Your Choices and Opt-Outs

                  Members and Visitors who have opted in to our marketing emails can opt out of receiving marketing emails from us at any time by clicking the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of our marketing messages.

                  Also, all opt-out requests can be made by emailing us using the contact details provided in the "Questions and Concerns" section below. Please note that some communications (such as service messages, account notifications, billing information) are considered transactional and necessary for account management, and Members cannot opt out of these messages unless you cancel your Spreespot account.

                  4.3. Our Security

                  We take appropriate and reasonable technical and organizational measures to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the Personal Information.

                  Spreespot accounts require a username and password to log in. Members must keep their username and password secure, and never disclose it to a third party.

                  4.4. Retention of Data

                  We retain Personal Information where we have an ongoing legitimate business or legal need to do so. Our retention periods will vary depending on the type of data involved, but, generally, we'll refer to these criteria in order to determine retention period:

                  • • Whether we have a legal or contractual need to retain the data.
                  • • Whether the data is necessary to provide our Services.
                  • • Whether our Members have the ability to access and delete the data within their Spreespot accounts
                  • • Whether our Members would reasonably expect that we would retain the data until they remove it or until their Spreespot accounts are closed or terminated.

                  When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

                  4.5. Changes to this Policy

                  We may change this privacy policy at any time and from time to time. The most recent version of the privacy policy is reflected by the version date located at the top of this privacy policy. All updates and amendments are effective immediately upon notice, which we may give by any means, including, but not limited to, by posting a revised version of this privacy policy or other notice on the Websites. We encourage you to review this privacy policy often to stay informed of changes that may affect you. Our electronically or otherwise properly stored copies of this privacy policy are each deemed to be the true, complete, valid, authentic, and enforceable copy of the version of this privacy policy that was in effect on each respective date you visited the Website.

                  4.6. Questions & Concerns

                  If you have any questions or comments, or if you have a concern about the way in which we have handled any privacy matter, please use our contact form to send us a message. You may also contact us by postal mail:

        Terms of Use

          Updated: September 12, 2019
          Spreespot takes data privacy seriously. This privacy policy explains who we are, how we collect, share and use Personal Information, and how you can exercise your privacy rights.
          Thanks for using Spreespot.

          Please read these Terms carefully. By using Spreespot or signing up for an account, you’re agreeing to these Terms, which will result in a legal agreement between you and Spreespot (“Agreement”). We’ll start with the basics, including a few definitions that should help you understand these Terms. Spreespot Inc. (“Spreespot,” “we,” or “us”) is an online Marketplace platform (the “Service”) that allows users to buy and sell goods through a network of pick up / drop off points. The Service is offered through our website, http://www.Spreespot.com. Spreespot is a Canadian incorporated company whose legal name is Spreespot Inc. As a customer of the Service or a representative of an entity that’s a customer of the Service, you’re a “Member” according to this Agreement (or “you”).

          These Standard Terms of Use define the terms and conditions under which you’re allowed to use the Service in accordance with the Agreement, and how we’ll treat your account while you’re a Member. If you don’t agree to these Terms, you must immediately discontinue your use of the Service.

          Spreespot uses Google Maps to provide certain features of the Service, and, as a result, we are contractually obligated to make our Members aware of certain terms related to the use of such features. Therefore, you acknowledge and agree that by signing up for an account and using the Service, you are also bound by the Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service (including the Google Privacy Policy).

          If you have any questions about our Terms, feel free to contact us

            1. Age Restriction
            • 1.1 In order to minimize risks, Spreespot asks that anyone under the age of 16 years have their parent/guardian respond and post ads on their behalf. Spreespot reserves the right to remove any ad if we feel it is in the best interest and safety of our users.

              2. Account
              • 2.1 Transactions

                Transactions made using the Spreespot service are made between buyer and seller. Statements made on Item condition must be verified by the buyer prior to accepting the item into their possession. Once the item is accepted, the transaction is deemed as complete.

              • 2.2 Eligibility

                In order to use the Service, you must:

                1. be at least eighteen (16) years old and able to enter into contracts;
                2. complete the account registration process;
                3. agree to our Terms;
                4. provide true, complete, and up-to-date contact information;
                5. be based in Canada
                6. not be listed on any list of prohibited or restricted persons.

                By using the Service, you represent and warrant that you meet all the requirements listed above, and that you won’t use the Service in a way that violates any laws or regulations. Note that by representing and warranting, you are making a legally enforceable promise.

                Spreespot may refuse service, close accounts of any Members, and change eligibility requirements at any time.

              • 2.3 Term

                When you sign up for an account and agree to these Terms, the Agreement between you and Spreespot is formed, and the term of the Agreement (the “Term”) will begin. The Term will continue for as long as you have a Spreespot account or until you or we terminate the Agreement in accordance with these Terms, whichever happens first. If you sign up for an account on behalf of a company or other entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to accept these Terms and enter into the Agreement on its behalf.

              • 2.4 Closing your account

                You or Spreespot may terminate the Agreement at any time and for any reason by terminating your Spreespot account or giving notice to the other party. We may suspend the Service to you at any time, with or without cause. If we terminate your account without cause, and your account has a balance remaining, we’ll issue payment for the remaining balance. If your account is suspended or terminated for cause, like a breach or any violation of the Agreement, an inquiry will be made as to the validity of you remaining balance. If your account is inactive for 24 or more months, we may terminate the account. Once your account is terminated, you acknowledge and agree that we may permanently delete your account and all the data associated with it, including your listings.

              • 2.5 Changes

                We may change any of the Terms by posting revised Terms on our Website. Unless you terminate your account, the new Terms will be effective immediately and apply to any continued or new use of the Service. We may change the Service, Add-ons, or any features of the Service at any time, and we may discontinue the Service, Add-ons, or any features of the Service at any time.

              • 2.6 Account and PasswordTerm

                You’re responsible for keeping your account name and password confidential. You’re also responsible for any account that you have access to and any activity occurring in such account (other than activity that Spreespot is directly responsible for that isn’t performed in accordance with your instructions), whether or not you authorized that activity. You’ll immediately notify us of any unauthorized access or use of your accounts. We’re not responsible for any losses due to stolen or hacked passwords. We don’t have access to your current password, and for security reasons, we may only provide you with instructions on how to reset your password. We have the right to update any of your contact information in your account for billing purposes. In addition, you represent and warrant that all information you provide to us when you establish an account, and when you access and use the Service, is and will remain complete and accurate.

              • 2.7 Disputes

                You won’t request access to or information about an account that’s not yours, and you’ll resolve any account-related disputes directly with the other party. We decide who owns an account based on the content in that account, and if multiple people or entities are identified in the content, then we’ll rely on the contact and profile information listed for that account. In cases where differing contact and profile information is present, we’ll require you to resolve the matter through proper channels outside of Spreespot.

                When a dispute is identified, we may suspend any account associated with the dispute, including disabling login and sending capabilities, to protect the security and privacy of the data held within the account.

                3. Payment
                • 3.1 Seller Fees

                  Listing items on Spreespot is free. A commission will be taken at the time of sale. The commission amount will be dependent on the service type that was selected to list the item. Commission amounts will be directly deducted from total sale proceeds.

                • 3.2 Payments

                  Payment requests can be made through the seller’s account. Payments will be processed on a best effort basis and speed of payment may depend on timing of request.

                • 3.3 Service fees for buyers

                  A service fee is charged for the pickup / drop off service. The fee will be visible in the shopping cart during checkout.

                • 3.4 Fee Changes

                  We may change our fees, including our commissions or purchase charges at any time by posting a new pricing structure to our Website or in your account and/or sending you a notification by email. Quoted fees don’t include sales or other transaction-based taxes of any kind.

                  4. Rights
                  • 4.1 Proprietary Rights Owned by Us and by You

                    We own all proprietary rights in the Service, including, but not limited to, patents, trademarks, service marks, trade secrets, copyrights, and other intellectual property rights.

                      • • Hateful Content.

                      If you violate any of these rules, then we may suspend or terminate your account.

                    • 5.2 Reporting Abuse

                      If you think anyone is violating any of these Terms, please notify us immediately.

                    • 5.3 Compliance with Laws

                      You represent and warrant that your use of the Service will comply with all applicable laws and regulations. You’re responsible for determining whether the Service is suitable for you to use in light of your obligations under any regulations. You may not use the Service for any unlawful or discriminatory activities, or any other applicable laws.

                      If you collect any personal information pertaining to a minor and store such information within your Spreespot account, you represent and warrant that you have obtained valid consent for such activities according to the applicable laws of the jurisdiction in which the minor lives.

                      You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any losses, including all legal fees and expenses, that result from your breach of this Section 5.2.

                      6. Liability
                      • 6.1 Limitation of Liability

                        To the maximum extent permitted by law, you acknowledge and agree that (i) you assume full responsibility for any loss that results from your use of the Service, including any downloads from the Website; (ii) we and our Team won’t be liable for any indirect, punitive, special, or consequential damages under any circumstances, even if they’re based on negligence or we’ve been advised of the possibility of those damages; and (iii) in any calendar month, our total liability to you arising under or in connection with the Agreement—whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise—will be no more than what you paid us for the Service the preceding month.

                        For the avoidance of doubt, in no instance will we or our Team be liable for any losses or damages you suffer if you use the Service in violation of these Terms, regardless of whether we terminate or suspend your account due to such violation.

                      • 6.2 . No Warranties

                        To the maximum extent permitted by law, we provide the Service as-is. This means that, except as expressly stated in these Terms, we don’t provide warranties, conditions, or undertakings of any kind in relation to the Service, either express or implied. This includes, but isn’t limited to, warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, which are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Agreement. Since Members use the Service for a variety of reasons, we can’t guarantee that it’ll meet your specific needs.

                      • 6.3 Indemnity

                        You agree to indemnify and hold us and our Team harmless from any losses, including legal fees and expenses that directly or indirectly result from any claims you make that aren’t allowed under these Terms due to a “Limitation of Liability” or other provision. (Indemnity is an agreement to compensate someone for a loss.) You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any losses, including legal fees and expenses, that directly or indirectly result from (i) your Content, (ii) your use of the Service, (iii) your violation of any laws or regulations, (iv) third-party claims that you or someone using your password did something that, if true, would violate any of these Terms, (v) any misrepresentations made by you, or (vi) a breach of any representations or warranties you’ve made to us.

                      • 6.4 Equitable Relief

                        Your violation of these Terms may cause irreparable harm to us and our Team. Therefore, we have the right to seek injunctive relief or other equitable relief if you violate these Terms (meaning we may request a court order to stop you).

                      • 6.5 Subpoena Fees

                        If we have to provide information in response to a subpoena, court order, or other legal, governmental, or regulatory inquiry related to your account, then we may charge you for our costs. These fees may include attorney and employee time spent retrieving the records, preparing documents, and participating in a deposition.

                      • 6.6 Disclaimers

                        We and our Team aren’t responsible for the behavior of any third parties, linked websites, or other Members.

                        7. Other Important Stuff
                        • 7.1 . Assignments

                          You may not assign any of your rights under this Agreement to anyone else. We may assign our rights to any other individual or entity at our discretion.

                        • 7.2 . Force Majeure

                          We won’t be held liable for any delays or failure in performance of any part of the Service, from any cause beyond our control. This includes, but is not limited to, acts of god, changes to law or regulations, embargoes, war, terrorist acts, riots, fires, earthquakes, nuclear accidents, zombie apocalypse, floods, strikes, power blackouts, volcanic action, unusually severe weather conditions, and acts of hackers, or third-party internet service providers.

                        • 7.3 Severability

                          If it turns out that a section of these Terms isn’t enforceable, then that section will be removed or edited as little as required, and the rest of the Agreement will still be valid.

                        • 7.4 . Interpretation

                          The headers and sidebar text are provided only to make these Terms easier to read and understand. The fact that we wrote these Terms won’t affect the way the Agreement is interpreted.

                        • 7.5 Waiver

                          If we don’t immediately take action on a violation of these Terms, we’re not giving up any rights under the Terms, and we may still take action at some point.

                        • 7.6 No Changes in Terms at Request of Member

                          Because we have so many Members, we can’t change these Terms for any one Member or group.

                        • 7.7 Further Actions

                          You’ll provide all documents and take any actions necessary to meet your obligations under these Terms.

                        • 7.8 Notification of Security Incident

                          If we become aware of a security incident related to our systems or databases that contain personal information of you or your contacts, we’ll notify you if required by law. In that event, we’ll also provide you with information about that incident so that you can evaluate the consequences to you and any legal or regulatory requirements that may apply to you, unless we’re prevented from doing so by legal, security or confidentiality obligations. Notifying you of a security incident or cooperating with you to respond to one will not be deemed an acknowledgement or assumption of any liability or fault of Spreespot for such incident.

                        • 7.9 Entire Agreement

                          These Terms and any Additional Terms you’ve agreed to by enabling any Add-ons make up the entire agreement between us in relation to its subject matter and supersede all prior agreements, representations, and understandings. Any Additional Terms will be considered incorporated into the Agreement when you activate the corresponding Add-on.

                          Where there’s a conflict between these Terms and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control to the extent of the conflict.

                        • 7.10 Notice

                          Any notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail to the address in Spreespot’s records. Any notice from you to us shall be sent in writing to our mailing address:
