The purchase process requires you to give Bare Necessities your purchase information,
billing and shipping addresses and credit card information. This information is
provided to Canada Post to allow Canada Post and its suppliers (such as credit card

written confidentiality requirements and may only use this information to provide
their services to Canada Post. Canada Post also may from time to time analyze and
study this information to help Canada Post better serve merchants and consumers
with its Borderfree Service, including purchase trends using the Borderfree Service,
at the postal code level. Any such studies or reports so generated for Canada Post,

In order to protect you, Bare Necessities and Canada Post from fraudulent transactions,
Canada Post may provide your transaction-related information to a reputable third
party organization to perform address and credit verification. This address verification
is intended to ensure that the "bill to" address that you provide matches your credit
card address. Canada Post also reserves the right not to ship items ordered or purchased
on this website to certain addresses, at its discretion. In the event that Canada
Post chooses not to ship an item, you will be notified by Bare Necessities.
Bare Necessities and Canada Post reserve the right to co-operate with local, provincial

reporting may include disclosure of personal information relating to those individuals
conducting such improper or unlawful activities.
