Privacy Policy

Kawartha TV & Stereo has developed this Privacy Policy, because we may collect personal information from our customers during the course of doing business. We understand the importance of protecting your personal information and using the information that we collect in a responsible and accountable manner.

Your use of this Website is governed by the Terms and Conditions, this Privacy Policy, and the Warranty and Returns Policy. You are responsible for familiarizing yourself with these policies.

In this Policy, the name “Kawartha TV & Stereo”, as well as the words “we” and “our” are taken to mean Kawartha TV & Stereo and its authorized associates, partners, and subsidiaries.

How is my consent involved?
There are two ways in which we will seek to obtain consent from you when we are about to collect personal information.

Express consent: We may present you with an explicit option to allow the collection of certain kinds of personal information. For example, we may present you with a checkbox that, when checked by you, indicates your consent to receive promotional materials from us using your email address.

Implicit consent: We may obtain your consent implicitly when we can reasonably conclude that you’ve given consent by some action you have taken or an action you have decided not to take. Generally, this occurs where the purpose for use of your personal information would be reasonably apparent to you.

You may withdraw your consent at any time by notifying us. However, this may prevent you from using this Website and our other products and services. When you choose to withdraw your consent to the collection of some or all of your personal information, we will inform you of the consequences of doing so.

Kawartha TV & Stereo does not intentionally solicit or collect personal information from anyone under the age of sixteen (16).
