We may disclose information about you or your use of the Website and/or Services without your prior permission if we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

They will have access to your personal information in order to perform these services, but are not authorized to use your information for any other purpose.
We take care to make our site secure. The payment system used by Far and Wide is Stripe. This means there is no need for Far and Wide to record your credit card details as this is a secure gateway for online payment. To learn more about Stripe visit their website.
If you’re a customer whose credit card is not denominated in Canadian dollars, the final price will be calculated in accordance with the applicable exchange rate on the day your card issuer processes the transaction. When converting to another currency, or when an item is charged to a credit card, a price variation may occur due to fluctuating exchange rates and credit card company charges. Once an order is sent, we take no responsibility for charges, taxes or duties incurred at the receiver’s end as this can vary depending on the rules of customs in each country. All prices displayed on the Far and Wide online shop are at our sole discretion. Pricing may change without notice and differ between national and international markets.
