Protecting your privacy at Jack and Jane
Jack and Jane is committed to protecting the privacy of its customers, in accordance with Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA).
We understand that our customers expect us to keep their purchases confidential, and so we have made a deliberate choice to protect personal information.
We only collect personal information that is necessary for each transaction. We won’t use or share your personal information for any other purposes, and your personal information will never be sold to third parties. All information will be kept for only the minimum length of time required by law and then deleted as soon as possible.
When we ship orders, we deliver in discreet packaging so the nature of your purchase is not revealed.
Jack and Jane is responsible for protection of personal information in its custody or under its control. This Policy describes key principles and practices followed by Jack and Jane with respect to its collection, use, disclosure, retention and disposal of personal information.

It reveals something of a personal nature about the individual, and it could reasonably identify the individual if disclosed (either on its own, or in combination with other information).
