As a Canadian online pharmacy it is a top priority to protect your privacy just as if you were dealing with a company in the United States. We know the connotation of disclosing personal information while buying online medication may be somewhat disconcerting and that makes us want to work harder to ensure your privacy is protected.
Although you are dealing with a pharmacy online, we are a Canadian company, and therefore we adhere to the strict national standards in Canada. The national privacy standards in Canada are known as PIPEDA (The Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act).
We do collect personal information about you in order to fill your prescription orders and we pledge to maintain the confidentiality of that information. Although you are our customers, you are also patients of the medical professionals we work closely with. That is the reason we seek your consent to communicate with pharmacists and other medical professionals in order to ensure the medication order we send you is handled with utmost care while at the same time ensuring your privacy is maintained. We do not sell, rent or give away the information you have entrusted to us.
Privacy and Security
We have strict policies and procedures in place to safeguard the privacy and security when you disclose personal information to us. Our website is SSL encrypted and both McAfee Secured and Let’s Encrypt to ensure private data transferred to us meets the standards set by our Privacy Officer.
Your personal information, including the data contained in our computers and transferred to us online, is protected from unauthorized access. Its use is restricted to employees who have a legitimate business need and reason for accessing the information. All employees of CanDrugstore are required to adhere to the privacy standards we have established and to follow all applicable laws and regulations. Employees are strictly prohibited from accessing and/or disclosing your personal information without previous authorization. All employees are aware that failing to maintain the confidentiality of personal information at all times will result in immediate and appropriate disciplinary action.
Types and Use of Personal Information Collected
The personal information we collect from you and about you is used to provide you with discount prescription medicines, communicate with you about your prescription order, send newsletters, enhance your visit to our website, process your prescription order, and provide the products and services you have requested. This information varies depending upon whether you are a client or a prospective client. Examples of personal information we may collect from you or about you include: your name, height, weight, date of birth, gender, the existence and types of drug allergies, medications requested, medical history information, details of your existing medications, prescription information, the name of your primary physician and their contact information, your email address, your physical address, telephone number, and credit card information.
The information may be obtained from a telephone or email conversation, online account creation, prescription form or from other sources, such as medical forms or reports. We maintain personal information regarding your transactions with CanDrugstore and we may request additional information in order to provide you with our products.
When visiting CanDrugstore you are doing so anonymously and privately without revealing any personal information. We do not collect information that could identify you personally unless you choose to provide it voluntarily.
The choice is always yours when it comes to providing us with your personal information. However, deciding to withhold details may limit our ability to provide you with the products and services we offer. If we cannot move forward with your order based on the information you have provided, we may ask for additional details to facilitate the process.
Choice to Opt-Out
You may access your personal information at any point by logging into your online account on our website. If you no longer wish to receive our marketing materials, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions on how to unsubscribe or by emailing us at [email protected].
Safeguarding Your Medical Information
CanDrugstore does not rent, sell, or give away your personally identifiable medical information to anyone for marketing purposes. We will only use and share personally identifiable medical information for specifically requested transactions and for those purposes required or permitted by law.
When We May Disclose Information
CanDrugstore respects the confidentiality of your personal information. There are circumstances in which we may disclose to third parties information we have about you in order to conduct our business, including processing a prescription transaction that you request or authorize. We will make these disclosures only when they are permitted or required by law. These disclosures may include providing information in response to a request by regulatory or governmental authorities, other administrators, auditors, or consultants.
We use third parties such as dispensing pharmacies, pharmacists, and doctors to help fulfill orders, check processing companies to issue payment transactions, and an email service provider to communicate via email with you on our behalf. We may share your personal information (i.e. name, mailing address, or medical profile information) with these third parties to administer your business and provide services to you. These third parties are prohibited from using your personal information for promotional purposes.
