More specifically, Livingstone collects and uses the following information:

All individuals (customer and non-customer)

Email address:

When you register for a user account and/or subscribe to our email newsletter, we collect your email address.  Your email will be used for account generation, and it will also be used to contact you for the purposes of product information, service updates, and notifications relating to the Sites.  In accordance with Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (S.C. 2010, c. 23) (CASL) with your consent, your email address will also be used to provide you with Information for promotional and marketing purposes.  At any time, you can opt-out of most email communication from us by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our emails, updating your subscription preferences in your online user account, or contacting our Store.  We may still contact you for product safety updates.

To understand and improve the effectiveness of our email marketing efforts, when we send you a marketing email, we will collect information about whether you open the email, access the link(s) provided, and, if you do, what pages you visit on our Sites, and also what, if anything, you purchase.

When you register for an account or subscribe to our email newsletter, you will be required to acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to comply with the Terms of Use and this Website Privacy Policy, as it may be amended from time to time, for as long as you continue to use our Sites.  If you disagree with the Terms of Use or this Website Privacy Policy, do not sign up for an account, subscribe to our emails, and/or use our Sites.

Website feedback form:

When you submit feedback about our Sites via our "Website Feedback Form" and/or complete an online survey that we have circulated, our third-party platform will collect information about you, including your expressed opinions and comments about your Livingstone experience.  You will have the option to submit your email address as well.  You will be bound by this Website Privacy Policy and Terms of Use of the platform, provided for your review when you access the Website Feedback Form and/or survey.  Livingstone will use the Information you provide to enhance user experiences and respond to feedback.  We may follow up with you to request further information related to the input provided.

Cookies, web beacons, pixel tags:

A cookie is a small text file stored on a user’s hard drive. Cookies are required to make purchases on our Sites.  We also use cookies to assist with site traffic analysis, which includes tracking the time/date of visits, pages viewed, and referring URLs.  We may use cookies to serve our remarketing campaigns so that third party vendors, which could include platforms like Google and Facebook, show our ads on sites across the Internet.  We may also use web beacons or pixel tags to compile tracking information reports regarding website user demographics, website traffic patterns, and website purchases.  None of the tracking information in these reports can be connected to the identities or other Personal Information of individual users.  For our own research purposes, we may link tracking information with Personal Information provided by individuals who access the Sites.  Once such a link is made, all of the linked information is treated as Personal Information and will be used and disclosed only in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Tracking and analytics:

Livingstone may use certain third-party analytics and/or ad serving services that also use cookies to monitor system usage, server, and software performance, to improve system design, to create benchmarks and to conduct trending analyses.  The providers of these services may independently collect, use, and disclose your IP address together with information about your visits to this and other websites that they service in accordance with their own privacy policies (and not this privacy policy).  These third-party services may use their own cookies and other data collection technologies.  They may use your browsing behaviour to improve your experience, to gain a view of how people are using websites that they service so that improvements can be made, and as otherwise permitted in their privacy policies.  Livingstone may also use targeted advertising service providers to tailor Livingstone advertisements to your preferences.  These advertisements may appear on Livingstone’s website or social media sites, or on third party sites.  If you do not consent to 3rd party analytics, please do not use our Sites.  If you have opted in to receive email news or offers, we may use your email address to target advertising to you. You may opt out of Livingstone email advertising by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our emails, updating your subscription preferences in your online user account, or contacting our Store.

Cached data:

When you use our Sites and App, some data is cached in the memory of your device.  Cached data is encrypted and kept on the device as long as you are logged in, even if the Site is put in the background.  The data is deleted from the device when you sign out of the Site and does not remain on the device.

Additional customer-specific information

Customer information:

When you create an online account to purchase products through our Sites, you can store credit card information and your billing address in your account.  Your credit card information will be stored as tokenized information and will be only available to you and for your use when purchasing products.

Processing of customer purchases from our sites:

When customers purchase an item from our Sites, we only request the information needed to complete the processing of orders and billing, which includes your shipping and billing address, telephone number, credit card and debit card details.

Your payment will be processed by an authorized third-party platform and shipping information will be shared with shipping companies that fulfill the shipment of your order on behalf of Livingstone.  As noted above, to expediate your purchases, in your user account, you may choose to save your preferred shipping and billing address, and payment card details.

Disclosure of information

Disclosure of information by Livingstone:

Livingstone will not disclose Personal Information for purposes other than the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy or for purposes that we expressly identify to you at the time we seek to collect your personal information.  We do not sell, rent or disclose your Personal Information to any third party without your consent unless disclosure without your consent is required or authorized by law.

For example, under certain circumstances, Livingstone will disclose your Personal Information without first obtaining your consent to:

  • Legal authorities: when we are required or authorized by law to cooperate with local, national, or international law enforcement or other authorities for the reporting of and/or investigation of improper or unlawful activities, at the request of a third party, or if we believe disclosure is reasonable to comply with court orders, protect individual’s health and safety, or protect Livingstone’s rights and property.
  • Trusted third parties: when the services we are providing to you require us to provide your information to a third party who performs functions on our behalf. Your information will be treated with the same level of privacy and security as we are committed to providing as an organization and will not be used for other purposes than that which we authorize.

Disclosure of information by you:

By you: You may disclose information when you post content to our websites, in-store technologies, or other public forums, such as our brands’ social media pages, blogs, and online product reviews.  Any information that you disclose through these services will become publicly available.

Social sharing: when you use certain aspects of Livingstone’s website or other services, or you post information to other social networking sites (e.g. posting a link to Livingstone’s Facebook or Instagram pages, or “liking” a product on your Facebook or Instagram account, or “pinning” a product on your Pinterest account), the Personal Information that you post or share in connection with these third party sites is visible to other persons and can be read, collected, used and disclosed by other persons.  Any information provided to such third-party social networking sites and other sites is outside of Livingstone’s control and is not governed by this Privacy Policy.

Collection of debt: Where it is necessary to establish or collect amounts owed to us.

Retention of information

At any time and without penalty, you can close your Livingstone online account by sending an e-mail to our Service Centre at [email protected].  If you would like to update or remove specific pieces of information you have saved within your account you can update them yourself by logging into your account (e.g., saved credit cards, billing address, etc.).

If you wish to have any of your information removed from our databases, or if you no longer want us to send any further communications to you, you can adjust your email settings through your online account or you can send an e-mail to our Store at [email protected].  Where your information is stored with our third parties, we will proceed as necessary to remove your information as requested. If you decide you no longer want us to send you further communications, we may still contact you for product safety reasons.

If you are a part of Livingstone’s membership program and have purchased products through Livingstone, we will retain a copy of your purchase history to ensure the appropriate enforcement of our “Guarantee” unless otherwise requested. If, however, you request that we delete your purchase history this may negatively impact our ability to honour this guarantee.


Livingstone takes a consent-based approach to the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information. Subject to situations where consent is not legally required, we identify the purpose(s) for which we are collecting your Personal Information at or before the time we collect it. Depending on the nature and sensitivity of the Personal Information we collect, we will do one of the following: (1) obtain your express consent to the collection; (2) imply your consent to the collection from the fact that you have chosen to supply your Personal Information to us; or (3) consider that you have consented to the collection unless you have chosen to opt-out of providing consent where we have made an opt-out option available.

International operations and data transfers

Unless there is a legal or regulatory requirement to store, access and/or use Personal Information in Canada, we may use third party platforms located outside of Canada to process and/or store Personal Information for us. Please note that Personal Information in the custody of these third-party platforms may be subject to access by the law enforcement authorities of those jurisdictions in which the third parties are located.

Our Privacy Officer can provide further information about our policies and practices regarding third party platforms located outside of Canada and further information about how they collect, use, disclose or store Personal Information on Livingstone’s behalf.


Livingstone relies on you to ensure that the Personal Information you provide to us while using the Site is as accurate, complete, and up to date as necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. You are welcome to make changes, request deletion or correction to Personal Information previously provided to Livingstone can be up updated online by logging into your account.


Livingstone uses administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect your Personal Information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal, or destruction in accordance with applicable legal requirements and industry standards. For example, we implement encryption and security controls to protect against unauthorized access to Personal Information during electronic transmission and require third parties acting on our behalf to maintain reasonable and appropriate safeguards.

We will review and update our security policies and controls as technology changes to ensure ongoing security of your information, however, please bear in mind that no internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free and no security system is impenetrable. We cannot fully guarantee the confidentiality of any information that you share with us.


Livingstone makes clear and transparent notice of our privacy practices publicly available via this Website Privacy Policy and via the notifications that we provide to you at the time that we collect your Personal Information directly from you. You are also welcomed to contact our Privacy Officer (see Accountability section above for contact information) to seek additional information about our privacy policies and practices.

Individual access

At any time, you can review, edit, or request removal of information you have provided to Livingstone within the requirements as outlined in Retention of Information above. Upon written request, addressed to the Livingstone Privacy Office, Livingstone will also provide you with a list of entities to whom we have disclosed your Personal information.

Additional features and information

It is important to guard your privacy when you are online. If our Sites and App contain links to other websites, those websites are not governed by this Privacy Policy. Whether we have posted those links or other organizations, or individuals have posted those links, you should read their privacy policies and make an informed decision about whether you want to use those websites or their services.

Where Livingstone has enabled you to connect with other third-party platforms in order to utilize their services in conjunction with our Sites, you will be subject to their collection practices and the terms of use and privacy policies of those third-party platforms. You are responsible for reviewing and agreeing to those privacy policies, and terms and conditions. If you do not agree with the third-party terms of use or privacy policies, you should not use the services offered by such third-party service providers.
