Privacy Policy

Your Privacy Rights



With respect for our customers, it is necessary that you know what personal information Checkout First may collect about you, how it may be used, how it may be shared, and how you can limit the use or sharing of your information.



This privacy policy is specific to Checkout First customer operations in Canada. As used within the context of this policy, "personal information" means personally identifiable, non-public information—such as your name or email address—that is not otherwise publicly available. Answers to survey questions, comments, and suggestions that do not identify you are not personal information, and Checkout First is free to use and distribute this information without obligation. However, any personal information you submit to us in connection with such surveys, comments, or suggestions is subject to this privacy policy.



This privacy policy does not apply to information we collect in connection with employment matters about our employees or applicants for employment.



If you are a Checkout First Payment Plan customer, please read Privacy for the Checkout First payment plan instead to understand what personal information we may collect about you, how we may use and share this information, and the steps you may take to limit this use or sharing.

Online Tracking

In order to make improvements to CheckoutFirst.com and your online shopping experience, we automatically receive and record information from your computer and browser, including your IP address, Checkout First cookie information (see below), software and hardware attributes, and the pages you visit. To do this, we may use applications that recognize your computer and gather information about its online activity.



For example, we use "cookies" on our website. A cookie is a small amount of data, often including an anonymous unique identifier, sent to your browser from a website. If your browser's preferences are set to accept it, the cookie is stored on your computer's hard drive. Your browser will permit a website to access the cookies it has sent to you, but not the cookies sent to you by other websites.



Our cookies provide information that makes it easier for you to use our website. They enable you to make purchases on CheckoutFirst.com and move uninterrupted between areas on the site. They collect information about your use of our site, your computer's operating system, browser type, your Internet service provider, domain name, IP address, the website visited before our site and the link used to leave our site.



We may also use cookies for a number of other reasons including:



To allow you to access your information when you "Login" to your account
To provide you with customized content
To remember the last page you visited
To keep track of preferences you specify while visiting CheckoutFirst.com
To conduct general analysis and research
To identify purchases made in response to our advertising
To provide you with enhanced online display advertising tailored to your interests


A cookie does not allow us to read any other information from your hard drive. If you are concerned about having cookies on your computer, you can remove them at any time. You can also set your browser to block cookies, or to notify you when you receive a cookie, allowing you to decide whether or not to accept it.



We may also use an application known as a "web beacon." A web beacon is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be placed on a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include personal information. We may use web beacons, in conjunction with cookies, for a number of reasons, including:



To assist in tracking and analyzing advertising effectiveness

To verify purchases made on CheckoutFirst.com

To count and recognize site visitors

To personalize your experience



In addition to our use of these applications, certain third parties and affiliates may set and access cookies on your computer and use web beacons in conjunction with them. For example, third parties or affiliates may administer Checkout First banner advertising programs on non-Checkout First websites or they may provide auditing, research, or reporting. Specifically, a third-party provider may collect information to target some Checkout First advertisements.



The use of any applications utilized by third parties and affiliates is subject to their own privacy policies, not the CheckoutFirst.com privacy policy. If you prefer to prevent third parties and affiliates from setting and accessing cookies on your computer and using web beacons in conjunction with them, you may set your browser to block cookies.



Please note: To complete a purchase on our website, you'll need to accept cookies sent by our website. If you choose not to accept our cookies, please by email or the contact form to place your order. Blocking our cookies may also impact the usability of other features on CheckoutFirst.com.
