Promotional Email
Running Free maintains a list of customers who wish to receive periodic emails containing advance sale notifications, special offers, exclusive discounts, as well as news about product launches, special events, and interesting training articles and reviews. You have the option of joining this update list by providing your email address at a Running Free store location when you make a purchase, registering for updates when you make an online purchase, or entering online through a sign-up box.

As of July 1st, 2014, Canadian Anti-Spam legislation (CASL) requires that all email addresses added to our update list must be accompanied by proof of express consent or implied consent. Detailed below are the steps we take to ensure all of our email communciations are in accordance with Anti-Spam laws.

Express Consent
If you joined our list at a store location or online, or have been on the list for a while, you can provide your Express consent at anytime by clicking on the Confirm link found at the top of every promotional email we send. If you enter your email address into a sign up box on our website or through a social media page, we use a double opt-in process which means you must provide your Express consent to receive email. Double Opt-In or Confirmed Opt-In works like this: After you have submitted your email address we'll send you a Confirm Consent email. You must click the confirm link in this email to be able to receive email from us. You should receive a Confirm Consent email with 5-10 minutes. If you do not, please contact us at

Implied Consent
If you have provided your email address at one of our store locations or online, and made a purchase within two years of that date, that is considered IMPLIED consent. At anytime you may provide your EXPRESS consent by clicking the confirm link, or revoke your consent by click the Unsubscribe link found in every promotional email you receive. If you haven't made a purchase for two years and you haven't unsubscribed or provided your Express consent, you will be sent one last email requesting that you confirm your address. If you do not, we will no longer send you any promotional email from that point onwards.

Unsubscribe and Update your Preferences
Recipients are provided with a Unsubscribe link and an Update Profile link in each promotional email they receive. If you wish to Unsubscribe or Change your preferences you must use these in-email links. If for any reason you cannot, please contact us a for removal or to edit your preferences. Our store staff do not have access to edit this for you. Email preferences include which (if any) Running Free store you're interested in receiveing information from in addition to regular updates (i.e. If you provided your address at a store, that store will be listed as one of your interests in your profile).

Identity, Privacy, and Address Information
All emails are sent through a email marketing service provider for the purposes of managing consent, bounces, and other email markerting related functions. Running Free will never share or otherwise provide your email address to a third party for any reason unless required by law. All emails are sent from a Running Free store location and the physical mailing address of that location will be listed in the email.

Non-promotional email interactions related to business with Running Free
Your confirmed consent is not required if you have initiated the communication by asking a question, or making a comment via email, or social media, or you initiated a special order, transfer, backorder at a Running Free location and requested information be sent to you via email.

Website Security customer service | privacy and security

Back to Previous Page
We use ultra-secure 3DES encryption technology along with 128 bit https encryption on every page to provide 100% security for your online transactions.

Whenever you place an order on our site your information is protected. When you begin your checkout and when you log into your account, we encrypt your information using state-of-the-art encryption technology. This scrambles your information while it moves across the internet, the only computer that can descramble this information is ours!

Once your information arrives at our servers, your information stored in our database using triple-des encryption, this is one of the most secure ways to encrypt stored data. All software that reads information in the database is secured and kept under lock and key.

The servers that contain your data are kept in a secure co-location facility where admittance is regulated through access only privileges and all persons entering this facility are under constant video surveillance. In the most unlikely event that a server containing data is compromised, the data on it would be useless to anyone without access to the ultra secure decryption key that is under physical lock-and-key in a separate facility.

Your peace of mind is extremely important to us, and for that reason we take your privacy very seriously!
