At LCBO API, we use the “Privacy by Design” approach. This means that we think of privacy implication before building a new feature, we don’t ask for information we don’t need, and we protect the information we have. We take pride in treating our users’ privacy the way we’d like to be treated by a website like LCBO API, as individuals.
We collect anonymous data from every visitor of the Website to monitor traffic and fix bugs. For example, we collect information like web requests, the data sent in response to such requests, the Internet Protocol address, the browser type, the browser language, and a timestamp for the request.
You are able to view, change and remove your data associated with your profile, you can also permanently delete it and any data associated with it from your account settings page.
Minors and children should not use LCBO API. By using the Website, you represent that you have the legal capacity to enter into a binding agreement.
