THE GARAGE will NOT share, sell, rent or trade information with third parties for their own promotional purposes, and will only share information as outlined below or with your consent.

  • Customer Testimonials – At times, we may post customer testimonials on our website. We will obtain your consent via email and/or opt-in methods prior to posting your name, city, or stated activity/interest along with any testimonial.

  • Service Providers – We use third party service providers to offer or facilitate services on our behalf, such as a shipping company to fulfill orders, a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services, and an email service provider to send out emails on our behalf. When you order products from THE GARAGE, we will share your information as necessary for such third party services providers to provide the applicable service to us or on our behalf. These third parties are strictly prohibited from using any identifying information about you for promotional purposes.
  • Marketing Communication – Unless individuals ask THE GARAGE not to, THE GARAGE may contact individuals via email in the future to tell individuals about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy. If you purchase a product but do not wish to receive any additional marketing material from us, you can indicate your preference on our order form by leaving the “Opt-In” checkbox blank.

ONLINE ADVERTISING AND ANALYTICS:

When you use our websites (including our ecommerce online store), we may collect and analyze information about your computer or mobile device such as your IP address, a mobile device identifier (e.g., a IDFA on Apple products like the iPhone and iPad or similar advertising identifiers), browser types, browser language, operating system, the state or country from which you accessed the Services, referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, the number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time you used the Services and upload or post content, error logs, and other similar information. We monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site, and to improve the content of our website to better match the interests of our website users.

Online Analytics.

We may use third-party web analytics services on our Services, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use the sort of technology described in the Automatically-Collected Information section above to help us analyze how users use the Services, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Services. We also use Google Analytics for certain purposes related to online marketing, as described in the following section.

Online Advertising.

We do not serve third party advertisements to you while using thegarageperformance.ca. However, we do work with website analytics and advertising partners, including Google, Doubleclick Campaign Manager, AdRoll, Commission Junction and Facebook, to deliver THE GARAGE advertisements on third party publisher websites - these partners may set cookies on your computer's web browser. These cookies allow our partners to recognize your computer so that the ad server can show you THE GARAGE advertisements elsewhere on the Internet, and so that our analytics software can measure your engagement and interactions while using thegarageperformance.ca. In this way, ad servers may compile anonymous, de-identified information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw our advertisements, whether or not you interacted with our advertisements, and actions performed on subsequent visits to thegarageperformance.ca. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you, and it allows THE GARAGE to optimize the performance of our advertising campaigns and the usability of our website. In other words, we use analytics data in concert with data about our online ads that have been shown using the Google Display Network, DoubleClick for Advertisers, or other online advertising networks. By doing so, we can understand how anonymous users interacted with our website after seeing our ads.
