This policy explains how we track, store and use the information we collect from this website. We collect information in two ways:
- Personally identifiable information through form submissions.
- Anonymous information through tracking cookies.
Full details are provided on the page below.
Personal information from form submissions
The only time we collect any personally identifiable information about you is when you send it to us voluntarily through one of our forms. We will collect personally identification information from users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personally identification information, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain features on this website. Publicly available information, such as a public directory listing of your name, address, and telephone number are not considered to be personally identification information. We only collect the information we need to fulfill the interaction.
Any information you send to us is kept secure and confidential. We do not share or sell your information with outside marketers (“spammers”).
What are cookies?
Cookies are small sets of data that are stored in text files on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors.
This information is used to help us make improvements to the site.
Anonymous demographics information
As part of our anonymous tracking through Google Analytics, we collect information about your gender, age range, and general interests (for example, “travel” or “news”). This helps us understand our users to improve our website. We do NOT collect any information that:
Can be used to identify you personally.
Reflects your faith, racial heritage, or sexual preferences.
If anonymous tracking concerns you, you can opt out of Google’s tracking cookies using the information and tools on this page.
Your information is kept confidential. Only authorized employees and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure) have access to this information.
There are very rare occasions in which we might be required by law to share information with government agencies for the purposes of criminal investigations or in the interests of preventing fraud.
How we protect your information
We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our website. This includes, for example, firewalls, password protection and other access and authentication controls. We also use SSL technology to encrypt data during transmission through public internet, and we also employ application-layer security features as further protection.
While no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, if we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you and the authorities of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.
When you place an order through the website, we will maintain your order information for our records for a limited period of time as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law, unless and until you ask us to delete this information.
Third party websites
Users may find advertising or other content on our website that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our website. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our Site, is subject to that website’s own terms and policies.
Your acceptance of these terms
By using this website, you signify your acceptance of this policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our website. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.
The privacy of Canadians is protected by the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). The provinces of Québec, Alberta and British Columbia have additional legislation.
