Information You Give Us
We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, and communicating with you.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses getbounce.ca or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of www.getbounce.ca on other Web sites.
When you download or use apps created by WGI Service Plan Division Inc. (Dba W3 Solutions) or its subsidiaries, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as repair shops, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services.
To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from getbounce.ca if your computer supports such capabilities. If you don't want to receive email or other mail from us, you can always unsubscribe to our emails.

Where applicable, we will seek your express consent to send you information, including by way of commercial electronic messages. For example, if you have purchased a repair or accessory from us we may occasionally contact you via email to keep you updated, or ask for your consent to extend special offers to you. This consent is sought by WGI Service Plan Division Inc. (Dba W3 Solutions) at 1455 Bellevue Avenue, West Vancouver, BC, V7T 1C3.

Even if you have opted out of receiving marketing communications from us, please be aware that we may still contact you for other purposes. For example, we may contact you to provide communications you have consented to receive, regarding the services we provide to you, or if you contact us with an inquiry.
How We Protect and Retain Your Information
We take all reasonable steps to protect the security and confidentiality of your personal information. We protect personal information with appropriate organizational, technological and physical safeguards.
For example, we adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Site. We store personal information in a secure manner, and our security measures include secure on- and off-site storage, restricted access to records and data processing equipment, password protocols, and encryption and security software. We apply appropriate safeguards reflective of the sensitivity of the personal information. For example, any payment information is kept safe by using SSL software, which encrypts your sensitive information. We conduct audits and monitor compliance with our privacy practices.
We only retain personal information for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. When we no longer are required to retain the information, we will destroy, erase, or de-identify the information. Legal requirements, however, may require us to retain some or all of the personal information we hold for a period of time that is longer than that for which we might otherwise hold.
