By visiting or using the website www.saltmedia.ca and any related sites, and using any services offered through this website, you (the person, and all website users) signify that you’ve read, understand, and agree to be bound by allllll the Terms and Conditions with Saltmedia Ltd.
The details below are important—stuff about your rights and obligations and the limitations and indemnities of the Terms and Conditions—and we encourage you to read them carefully.
If you use this website, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. If you don’t want to be bound by them, don’t use the website.
So, here it goes…
We might need to update these Terms and Conditions suddenly and without notice (although we’ll always try to let you know about changes) and we reserve the right to do so.
It’s up to you to keep up to date on any changes, and to stop using the website if you disagree with any changes. If you use the website, it is understood that you’ve accepted the most current version of these Terms and Conditions.
You agree that you have the legal right, capacity, and ability to abide by these Terms and Conditions—and by extension the use of the website. The Saltmedia websites that are covered by these Terms and Conditions are not designed or directed for children 13 years of age or younger.
We will never knowingly collect or keep info on anyone under the age of 13 years. Oh! And ‘you’ also means any organization you are using the website on behalf of—so the Terms and Conditions cover such organizations, together and separately from you personally.
We give you a license (no, not a driver’s licence): a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license only to use the website under the terms of these Terms and Conditions. We reserve the right to only issue the rights we (and our licensors) choose to issue. (That was a fun sentence!)
If you need an account to use any part of this website, you’re responsible for every aspect of it including privacy, passwords, and any activities anyone does if they gain access to your account for any reason.
You agree to let us know if your account has been compromised in any way. (That would suck, but we’re here to help!)
You also agree that any info you give us is completely accurate and current, and you’ll let us know if anything changes. Feel free to not update us when your relationship status changes. Unless you want to!
We do not guarantee we can grant wishes or create world peace—although we’ll always try! We’re also limited by the internet. When it’s acting up, we might not be able to offer all services. Or, services may be verrrrrrrry slowwwww.
An internet outage or issue may cause the privacy of any info you send to be compromised. This is out of our control.
You will ensure you only use this website for lawful purposes, and you’ll inform us immediately if you become aware of any violation of these Terms and Conditions. You’ll also work with us, if requested, to stop and/or fix any violations.
You will ensure that you will not, in connection with the website, either directly or indirectly do or allow any of the following: posting, uploading, reproducing, distributing, or otherwise transmitting any content that is illegal, unauthorized or unsolicited commercial communications or any sort, anything that contains any harmful or disruptive or surreptitious components, anything defamatory or infringing, anything inappropriate, profane, or indecent, anything that could lead to civil liability of any of us or any 3rd party, pyramid selling, obscenity or child pornography, threats or harassment of any kind, do anything to disguise the origin of any data transmitted by this website, do anything to compromise the operation or security of any site or device, and not take or share anything without consent.
In other words? Please be nice!
Our Remedies: We wish we had a remedy for pandemics! But as far as this website goes, without limiting any of our rights, we may take action to suspend, restrict, or end your use of the website without notice if there is any reason to believe you have violated any of the above rules.
Content means all the stuff (content) of every sort on our website and in the code that runs our website. 3rd party content includes any content you get or can see on the website that’s owned by other companies. Using this website does not give you any rights to 3rd party content.
Oh, and it’s not our job to verify and 3rd party content or links. Of course, we’ll try to only use good stuff, but it’s up to you to check any 3rd party content.
All our content (what you see and what you don’t see) and everything that makes the site operate is fully vested in us, our licensors, or our suppliers and is protected by applicable laws and other proprietary rights and laws. You don’t have any rights to our stuff.
Unless we give you permission in writing, you agree not to take, copy, use, deep link, or in any other way transfer any right or interest in our content, or distribute it in any way, or do anything to try to discover the source code of our content, or do anything to take away any proprietary info or let any other person or company do any of the above.
If you post, upload, input, provide, submit, or otherwise transmit to us or any 3rd party info using our website, you agree that you’ve given us license to use your info in any way, you confirm the info completely belongs to you and you have permission to give us permission to use it, and you completely indemnify and save us harmless from any bad stuff like (but not limited to) liabilities, claims, demands, and losses.
This includes any case where your content either infringes on any 3rd party content/3rd party intellectual property rights, or is unlawful or inappropriate in any way.
You acknowledge that using our website may involve transmitting and/or storing your content to others—even those outside Canada who are under other laws. And that content may be cached or processed or transmitted at other places on the internet.
You agree that even if you delete your account with us, we may retain some of your content or info for archival or compliance or other purposes. We may also disclose info/your content to 3rd party service providers.
It’s not our obligation to check your content or 3rd party content in any way. But, if we receive a complaint that relates to you, you acknowledge that we can investigate without notice or liability and take any appropriate action.
We’d like to keep all accounts! Be nice and everything will work out. But if we need to suspend, restrict, or terminate your account and your use of the website, we can do so whenever and for any reason. We don’t have to tell 3rd parties that we’ve done so.
You acknowledge and agree that you use this website and all its content at your own risk, you use links at your own risk, and we do not endorse, investigate, or verify these websites and their content, and the website operating under these Terms and Conditions is offered on an ‘As is’ and ‘As available’ basis.

This agreement is deemed to satisfy any writings required of any applicable law.
The captions and headings are just to be helpful and are not substantive matter. Words like ‘including’, ‘includes’, and ‘such as’ are not to be limiting, and the word ‘or’ doesn’t imply an exclusive relationship between the matters that it connects. All references to website addresses or URLs include any successor or replacement websites.
Even if we don’t insist on/enforce strict performance of any of our Terms and Conditions, it is not a waiver of any provision or right. Nothing we do with any individual or company will act to change any provision of these Terms and Conditions. Our rights, powers, and remedies remain in full effect.
If any provision here turns out to be invalid/unenforceable in whole or part, the invalidity/unenforceability will only attach to the provision or part thereof and everything else will remain in full effect.
Any cause of action you have with respect to these Terms and Conditions or the website must be commenced within one year after the claim or cause of action arose, or it will be barred.
Any communication in connection with these Terms and Conditions delivered by us to you will be deemed to be given if sent to the contact info in your account. Any communication given by you to us will be deemed to be given and valid only if given in writing and delivered or submitted to the Chief Privacy Officer.
We may assign our rights and obligations under these Terms and Conditions (in whole or in part) without notice to you. But you can’t do the same without our prior, written consent. Plus, these Terms and Conditions will inure to the benefit of and bind you and us and our respective personal and legal representatives, successors, and permitted assigns.

Our store is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you.
Your data is stored through Shopify's data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.
If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.
