This information may include your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number and payment information. If we combine any automatically collected information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information for so long as it is identifiable to an individual.

1.2 Law and Style is committed to ensuring that your Personal Information is collected, used and disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations (as amended or replaced from time to time) protecting the privacy of Personal Information in the jurisdictions in which we operate (“Privacy Laws”). If a Law and Style website, product or service describes privacy practices applicable to specific types of information or in certain circumstances and those descriptions conflict with this Privacy Policy, those descriptions shall supersede this Privacy Policy.

1.3 Please read the following carefully to understand Law and Style’s practices regarding your Personal Information and how we will treat it. By using our Service or by otherwise submitting your Personal Information to us, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree or withdraw your consent, you should not provide us with Personal Information or should notify us that you have withdrawn your consent by contacting us using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below. However, before we implement the withdrawal of consent, we may require proof of your identity. In some cases, withdrawal of your consent may mean that we will no longer be able to provide certain products or services. Where you have submitted Personal Information about another individual to us, you must have obtained all consent required by Privacy Laws to do so.

Law and Style does not knowingly collect information from people under the age of 14 without the consent of a parent or guardian, and we do not target our products and Service to children under 13.

This Privacy Policy was last revised on the date noted above. Law and Style may update this Privacy Policy from time to time.

Our HTML-formatted emails may contain a web beacon or tracking pixel to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links or advertisements within the email.

5.1 Law and Style may transfer your Personal Information to our affiliates in order to provide the Service. We may transfer your Personal Information to third parties located in Canada or the United States of America or other countries in connection with the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. Other jurisdictions may have different data protection rules than Canada.  While your Personal Information is outside of Canada, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is located.  Those laws may require disclosure of your Personal Information to authorities in that country. For written information about our policies and practices regarding service providers outside of Canada, contact our Privacy Information Officer at the email address below in the section “How to Contact Us”.

By submitting your Personal Information, you consent to the transfer, disclosure, storage and/or processing of your Personal Information outside of your jurisdiction.


Law and Style has in place security measures to store all Personal Information collected and received securely. We use appropriate technical, organizational, contractual, administrative and physical measures to protect your Personal Information  that we hold against accidental and unlawful damage, deletion, misuse, copying, loss, theft and unauthorized access, use or alteration. 

Despite the measure outlined above, no method of information transmission or information storage is 100% secure or error-free, so we unfortunately cannot guarantee absolute security.  If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any information that you provided to us has been compromised), please contact us immediately using the contact information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.


7.1 You have the right to, at any time, ask us not to process or share your Personal Information for marketing-related purposes (even where you have previously given consent).

7.2 You have the right to access details of your Personal Information that we hold about you by written request and we will provide you with any such Personal information to the extent required by Privacy Laws. You may also challenge the accuracy and completeness of your Personal Information in our records and request correction or rectification of such Personal Information, if the Applicable Laws allows you to do so. If you successfully demonstrate that your personal information in our records is inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend the personal information as required. We may require that you provide sufficient identification to fulfill your request to access or correct your personal information.  Any such identifying information will be used only for this purpose.

7.3 You may choose to no longer receive communications from us. You may unsubscribe to any email from us using the instructions in the email you receive; this will not stop us from sending emails about your account or transactions with us or other information required for your use of the Service.
