We collect, use and disclose Personal Information to provide you with the product or service you have requested and to offer you additional products and services we believe you might be interested in.
The purposes for which we collect Personal Information will be identified before or at the time we collect the information. In certain circumstances, the purposes for which information is collected may be clear, and consent may be implied, such as where your name, address and payment information is provided as part of the order process.

Some of the articles and content within The Vintage Seeker may use affiliate (third-party) links. These links in no way influence the direction of our editorial content, and we remain committed to delivering accurate and trustworthy information.
When you click on an affiliate link, a cookie that tracks your journey on that site alone will be dropped onto your computer for a period of time (length varies depending on the third-party site, but usually around 30 days). The Vintage Seeker does not receive the tracking information. If you make a purchase on that third-party site, we may receive a small commission from the retailer or service provider at no additional cost to you. This compensation helps us maintain and improve our website, ensuring that we can continue to offer you insightful and engaging content.
Our recommendations are always based on our own research and expertise. We will only promote products and services that we think will be of value to you. We are not responsible for the products and services themselves, nor are we responsible for the privacy policies on those websites.
Articles that contain affiliate links are always labelled as such at the top of the article, underneath the headline and subhead.
If you would prefer not to use these links for privacy reasons, you can still find the recommended products by using your favourite search engine and visiting pages directly.
If you have questions about how we use affiliate links, please contact us.
We will not sell or share your data with other third parties, except in the following cases:
User data will be stored for two years before re-confirming consent as per Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). You will be notified if your data is kept for longer than this period.
In order to protect your security, our data is stored on secure servers. All data is only accessible to our employees.
While we take all reasonable precautions to ensure that user data is secure and that users are protected, there always remains the risk of harm. The Internet as a whole can be insecure at times and therefore we are unable to guarantee the security of user data beyond what is reasonably practical.
Personal information will be maintained in as accurate, complete and up-to-date form as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is to be used.
We do not knowingly collect or use personal data from children under 16 years of age. If we learn that we have collected personal data from a child under 16 years of age, the personal data will be deleted as soon as possible. If a child under 16 years of age has provided us with personal data their parent or guardian may contact our privacy officer.
If you would like to know if we have collected your personal data, how we have used your personal data, if we have disclosed your personal data and to who we disclosed your personal data, if you would like your data to be deleted or modified in any way, or if you would like to exercise any of your other rights under PIPEDA or the GDPR, please contact our privacy officer here: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that you can set in certain web browsers. We do not track the users of our Site over time and across third party websites and therefore do not respond to browser-initiated DNT signals.
