Capitalized and defined terms in this privacy policy shall have the same meaning attributed to them in our Terms and Conditions of Use, available on our website at https://secondloveshoes.com/terms-and-conditions/.

By using our Second Love Marketplace, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information in accordance with this privacy policy. Please note that third-party service providers may have their own privacy policies on the collection and use of your information which either we or you provide them.

To create an account and buy or sell goods on the Second Love Marketplace, we may collect your:

  • Name;
  • Billing Address;
  • Shipping address (if different);
  • Email address;
  • Phone number;
  • Government issued identification, which we request in some cases to confirm the identity of sellers;

Credit Card and Payment Processing Companies

The Second Love Marketplace uses a third-party payment processor, PayPal Canada Co. and their related and affiliated entities (collectively “PayPal”) to process payments from you.  While we do not store your full credit card number ourselves, we may have access to your name, the name on the credit card, the credit card expiration date and other details via our payment processors.  Although we may host or embed their forms on the Second Love Marketplace, when you provide your payment details, you are providing them directly to PayPal. You consent to their collection and use of your personal information in doing so.

Providing us With the Personal Information of Someone Else

Where you provide us with, or upload data that includes the personal information of another person, you represent and warrant that you have their authorization to provide us with that information to use in accordance with this privacy policy and our Terms and Conditions of Use.

The collection of your personal information may also be used to:

  • Confirm your identity if you are selling goods;
  • Make payments to you, if you are a seller;
  • Facilitate the shipment of goods you order or are returning. Your name and shipping address will be provided directly to each seller you purchase goods from. In the event of a product return, as a seller, your name and shipping address to process the return will be provided directly to the buyer;

Disclosure Pursuant to Court Order, Subpoena or Other Legal Process

We reserve the right to provide your content and personal information to third parties if required by law (such as in response to a subpoena, court order or other legal process in any jurisdiction), and to cooperate with law enforcement authorities in the investigation of any criminal or civil matter. If we are required by law to make any disclosure of your content or personal information, we may, but are not obligated to, provide you with written notice (to the extent permitted by law) prior to such disclosure so that you may take appropriate action.

In accordance with our terms of use, you agree that we may report to the applicable authorities on any goods or images of goods you upload if we reasonably believe such goods are fraudulent, attempting to be sold in breach of a third-party’s intellectual property rights or are otherwise illegal. This includes providing your name and personal information to law enforcement authorities and the owners of intellectual property rights which we reasonably believe you may be infringing or attempting to infringe.

The Disclosure of Your Personal Information and Access to It

We may share your personal information with employees to use that information in connection with one or more of the purposes for which that personal information was collected.

We also operate the Second Love Marketplace in conjunction with our independent contractors and service providers.  Our independent contractors may have access to, and store your personal information, in providing services to us or providing you with access to the Second Love Marketplace. 

We may use a variety of service providers, servers, email providers, online software providers, advertisers and employees in locations both inside and outside of Canada, which may make your personal information the subject of foreign laws and foreign legal proceedings. If you have questions on our use of such third-party service providers, please contact our Privacy Officer by e-mail at info@secondloveshoes.com.

We may also disclose your personal information to our successors (if our business or the Second Love Marketplace is acquired by another legal entity) or any assignee of our assets.

WHILE WE TAKE MEASURES TO PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION, YOU AGREE THAT, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL WE, OUR AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, AGENTS, SUPPLIERS, OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE, HOWSOEVER CAUSED, FOR THE LOSS OR THEFT OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, OR ANY DAMAGES CAUSED, AS A RESULT THEREOF, SO LONG AS WE WERE NOT DIRECTLY GROSSLY NEGLIGENT IN THE PROTECTION OF SAID INFORMATION.

Retention of Your Personal Information 

We keep your personal information for as long as it is required for the purpose for which it was collected. There is no single retention period applicable to the various types of personal information collected. If you would like us to delete your personal information, please contact us.
