Payment and Delivery

You have a legal obligation to pay for any orders indicated to be made by you. In order to complete an order through the website, you may be required to provide certain information that is required to process your order. For example, you will be required to provide valid payment information (e.g. a valid credit card number and expiration date) to facilitate payment of your order. By completing an order through the website, you are agreeing to pay, in full, the prices and all applicable taxes and specified shipping and handling and other fees in relation to your order, either by credit card or other permitted payment method. Unless otherwise indicated, all dollar amounts on the website are in Canadian Dollars.

We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to change the permitted methods of payment, including without limitation, the credit cards and/or other types of payment options we are able to accept, at any time. If complete payment for your order is not received and verified by us, your order will not be processed. If you do not complete or improperly complete your order it may not be accepted or acknowledged.

A hold will be placed on your credit card at the time the order is placed. Once the order has been reviewed, approved and processed, the hold will be released and your card will be charged. You will be responsible for all applicable taxes related to your order. Applicable taxes will be charged at the time you are billed. Applicable sales tax will also be applied to the shipping and handling, return shipping and gift packaging or other charges. Taxes may depend on delivery location.

Please note that adding an item or items to your shopping cart (“Cart”) does not reserve such item(s) for you or guarantee that you will be able to purchase such item(s) at a later date. An item can sell out while it is sitting in your Cart. If an item was removed from your Cart, this may mean that we have sold out prior to you completing your Order. We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion, to change the prices offered on the website at any time, including without limitation, items that have been placed in your Cart.

Delivery

The estimated delivery time will be specified when you place your order. However, as we use a third party to ship purchases, your order may arrive before or after the expected date. The estimated delivery time will also depend on product availability and on the shipment destination.

Multiple orders may not always be shipped together. Depending on our product availability and on the size of your order, we reserve the right to divide the delivery of your order into partial shipments. Thus, you may receive several shipments to complete your order.

Purchases will only be shipped to a valid mailing address recognized by the third party shipping company. We do not ship outside of Canada. In the event we are not able to ship to the shipping address you provide, we will notify you to obtain an alternate eligible shipping address. Otherwise, your order will be cancelled, and you will receive a refund in respect of your purchase.

Optional Tools

We may provide you with access to third-party tools over which we neither monitor nor have any control nor input.

You acknowledge and agree that we provide access to such tools “as is” and “as available” without any warranties, representations or conditions of any kind and without any endorsement. We shall have no liability whatsoever arising from or relating to your use of optional third-party tools.

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any use by you of optional tools offered through the site is entirely at your own risk and discretion and you should ensure that you are familiar with and approve of the terms on which tools are provided by the relevant third-party provider(s).

All your personal data is strictly confidential and will only be accessible, on a need-to-know basis, to duly authorized personnel of La Difference Time Centre and other third-party providers acting on our behalf with appropriate physical, technical and organizational security safeguards.

La Difference Time Centre has implemented security measures to protect your personal data against unauthorized access, use and disclosure. We follow appropriate security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal data to prevent unauthorized access by third parties and to prevent your data being accidentally lost or deleted. We limit those who access your personal data to those who have a genuine business need to access it.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

We require those parties to whom we transfer your personal data to comply with the above security measures. However, unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. So, we cannot ensure the security of your personal data transmitted by you to us via the internet. Any such transmission is at your own risk and you acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible for any unauthorized use, distribution, damage or destruction of your personal data, except to the extent we are required to accept such responsibility under applicable law. Once we have received your personal data, we will use the security measures described above to safeguard such information.

The security of your personal data is important to us, so please contact us immediately should you become aware of any incident involving the loss or unauthorized access to or disclosure of your personal data that is in our custody or control. You agree, at your own risk, to keep the username and password for your Digital Platform customer account confidential and never to disclose them to third parties. In case of loss, theft or unauthorized use of your username or password, you agree to immediately notify us using the contact information set out below.

What rights do you have to protect your personal data?

In accordance with the applicable data protection laws, you can, at any time, request access, rectification, erasure and portability of your personal data or restrict and object to the processing of your personal data.

You have the right of access to a copy of your personal data. In certain limited and specific situations, we may not be able to provide access to all of your personal data, such as information that contains references to other individuals or information that cannot be disclosed for legal, security, or commercial proprietary reasons. In those circumstances, we will provide you with the reason for denying such access, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.

You have the right to require us to rectify any mistakes in your data or to complete your information. Depending upon the nature of the information challenged, amendment may involve the correction, deletion, or addition of information.

You have the right to require us to delete your personal data, in certain applicable situations.

You have the right to require us to restrict processing of your personal data, in certain applicable circumstances.

You have the right to receive the personal information you provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and/or transmit that data to a third party — in certain applicable situations.

You have the right to object the processing of your personal data at any time for direct marketing.

When the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you may at any time decide to withdraw it. If your consent is withdrawn, it will not affect the processing of your personal data based on other legal bases, such as fulfilling your orders and storing your order data as required by applicable law.

If you no longer wish to receive our marketing/promotional information, we remind you that you may withdraw your consent to direct marketing at any time directly from the unsubscribe link included in each electronic promotional message we send to you or by contacting us as set out below. If you do so, we will promptly update our databases, and will take all reasonable steps to meet your request. However, we may continue to contact you to the extent necessary for the purposes of any products or services you have requested.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local privacy commissioner in case of alleged infringement of the data protection rules applicable to you.

To exercise any of those rights, please contact us using the contact information below.

Please note that upon exercising any of the rights listed above, you will be requested to let us know what right you want to exercise and provide information, for example a copy of an identity card, passport or other legally recognized identity, for identification purposes in order to process your request and protect you against fraudulent requests from third parties. Such proof of identification will only be used for this purpose.
