Privacy Policy

(Last Updated June 14, 2017)


These are the sites of Leeward Security Ltd. and Painted Lemur Studios Inc. (collectively “Painted Lemur”). This Privacy Policy (as defined herein) applies to all Painted Lemur sites which reference this Privacy Policy including, without limitation,,,,, and (each a “Painted Lemur Site” and, collectively, the “Painted Lemur Sites”).

Painted Lemur is committed to maintaining the privacy, accuracy and security of your Personal Information. We fulfill this commitment through our employee training, the safeguards used to protect your information and our policies, including this Privacy Policy.

“Personal Information” is information about you as an identifiable individual that is protected by law. This Privacy Policy explains:

  • how and why we collect, use, and sometimes disclose your Personal Information;
  • how and when your informed consent will be requested (along with certain exceptions);
  • how you can access your Personal Information that we hold; and
  • who to contact if you have questions or concerns about your privacy.

Application of this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to any and all of Painted Lemur customers, authorized users of our products and services, and employees of the Companies.
While this document is meant to be comprehensive, it cannot address every situation where we deal with Personal Information so some of our products or services may also have product or service-specific privacy policies. Notice of these product or service-specific policies is provided in various ways appropriate to the circumstances. These policies form part of this Privacy Policy.

For example, given the unique nature of mobile devices, we may develop a Mobile App Privacy Notice for any mobile apps that Painted Lemur publishes. We may also provide you with additional information about our privacy practices, including through our website terms of use, online notices or prompts, frequently asked questions or other documents or websites.

Employee Personal Information is also governed by other policies, codes of conduct and agreements.

This Privacy Policy applies to any and all Painted Lemur companies and any successor companies, as a result of corporate reorganizations or restructuring. While our suppliers and authorized agents may have their own privacy policies, our contracts endeavour to ensure they treat your Personal Information with safeguards as strong as those set out in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to any and all Personal Information that we collect, use or disclose about our individual customers, authorized users and employees is covered by this Privacy Policy. This may include information such as your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, credit information, and billing or service records. There are some exceptions created by applicable law to what might ordinarily be considered Personal Information.

Not all information that identifies you is considered protected Personal Information. When certain Personal Information, such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address, is listed in a public directory, it is not protected by privacy laws. Your business contact information, such as name, title, business address, telephone number and business e-mail address used in relation to your employment or business, is also exempt. Information about you, but which cannot be associated with you as an identifiable individual, is not considered to be Personal Information. For example, information about you that has been de-identified so that it doesn’t identify you as an individual is not Personal Information.

Consent and Your Personal Information

Painted Lemur may need your consent to collect, use or disclose you Personal Information. When it is reasonable in the circumstances, we will imply consent from your actions. For example, if you give us your address we may use it to send you bills or other important notices related to your products and services on the basis that your consent can be reasonably implied.

In other situations, we may need your express consent before we collect, use or disclose your Personal Information. For example, we would get your express consent before using your Personal Information to perform a credit check. Express consent is when you explicitly consent verbally, or by signing a document, or ticking a box or performing a similar act demonstrating your consent.

Sometimes it may be impossible or inappropriate to obtain your consent, and in those cases, we may collect, use or disclose your information without your consent. For example:

  • if it is clearly in your interests (such as a medical emergency or a threat to your safety);
  • to comply with a warrant or other court order;
  • to collect a debt;
  • to investigate the breach of an agreement or applicable law; or
  • as otherwise legally required or allowed.

Painted Lemur may imply your consent if it is reasonable in the circumstances. We may ask for your express consent when our collection, use or disclosure of Personal Information is more sensitive or not necessarily expected.

An example of implied and express consent: When you sign up for a paid Service, we rely on implied consent to track your service usage for the purpose of billing you. However, we would request your express consent before we would use your Personal Information to enable individual location-based marketing for a third-party (unless you have already provided such consent to the third-party).

Painted Lemur may de-identify your Personal Information so that you cannot be identified as an individual, and use that de-identified information to improve our operations, to provide social benefits (such as assisting municipalities with traffic planning) and to develop analytic marketing reports for our use and for the use of our partners.

Collection, Use, and Disclosure of Your Personal Information

Painted Lemur may collect Personal Information for many purposes, including but not limited to:

  • automatically, when you use our products or services, or visit one of our websites (such as through the use of cookies or similar technologies), call into a call centre, and via security cameras when you shop in one of our corporate retail locations; or

Withdrawing Your Consent

You can withdraw your consent, or opt-out, of the collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Information in certain situations. For example, where you have provided express consent for the use of specific wireless location information for marketing purposes, you can opt-out later if you wish.

Similarly, you can opt-out of your Personal Information being used for a variety of marketing communications by us, including telemarketing or addressed marketing mail, or commercial electronic messages like emails and SMS messages. But where your Personal Information is reasonably necessary to provide you with the services you requested or the operation of our network, you cannot continue to use the services and opt-out of the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information because it is a condition of service. To stop the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information in these circumstances, you must terminate your use of the services.

Accuracy and Safeguarding of Your Personal Information

In order to learn more about your Personal Information and if it is accurate you can contact Painted Lemur directly. We will give you the opportunity to review the Personal Information in your file, subject to certain restrictions and exceptions, within a reasonable time after receiving a request in writing from you. If we cannot provide you with access to your Personal Information (for example, if it would involve the disclosure of someone else’s Personal Information or other confidential or privileged information), then we will advise you of the reason why. Our goal is to keep the Personal Information we hold about you accurate, up-to-date and complete. If you find an inaccuracy, let us know and we will correct it.

Painted Lemur uses appropriate technical and operational security safeguards which vary depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information in question. All of our employees with access to Personal Information are required to respect the confidentiality of Personal Information. Personal Information we disclose to third-parties is governed by this Privacy Policy through comparable protections in our commercial agreements and is also protected by additional safeguards, if required, depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information involved.

Your Personal Information may be transferred, stored or processed outside of Canada. Your Personal Information is only provided to our suppliers and authorized agents operating outside of Canada in accordance with safeguards no less rigorous than those that we apply in Canada. Personal Information processed outside of Canada may only be used by such third parties for the purposes we set. In such cases, however, your Personal Information may be subject to the legal jurisdiction of foreign countries.

Your Personal Information is kept only as long as is reasonably necessary or relevant for the identified purposes or as required by law. Once Personal Information is no longer reasonably necessary or relevant for the identified purposes, or required by law to be retained, your Personal Information is destroyed, erased or de-identified.
