Privacy Policy

This privacy statement is intended to explain what is done with your information and what you can expect. Personally identifiable information (such as your name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number) may be obtained and used, subject to the terms of this privacy policy and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) of Canada and Bill C-28 of Canada (also known as the Fighting Internet and Wireless Spam bill). Your information will never be sold, bartered or rented to any unauthorized third party.

 

How information is gathered from users

 

How information is collected depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of the website or request certain features, such as updates or when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate in contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other interactive areas that may be part of the site. Like most websites, this site also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to visitors. For example, the name of your Internet Service Provider may be logged or cookie technology used to recognize you and hold information from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting the site. As additional technology is adapted for this site, information may be gathered through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide certain information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and it may not be possible for the site’s IT personnel to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.

 

What is done with the collected information

 

As is commonly done by other publishers of other websites, your information is collected to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. Please be assured that your privacy is respected and your information will not be shared with anyone.

 

Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, information about your usage patterns may be combined with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance the site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.

 

Personally Identifiable Information collected on the site may be used to communicate with you about your registration and customization preferences, the Terms of Use & Service, the privacy policy, services and products offered or promoted on the site, and other topics the site’s publisher  believes you might find of interest.

 

Personally Identifiable Information collected by the site may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration, troubleshooting, processing of e-commerce transactions, administration of contests, and other communications with you. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of the site (the Web hosting service for example) may access such information. This information will be used by the site’s publisher only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as the business of the site’s publisher continues to develop, the publisher may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. Your information may also be disclosed in response to a court order or at other times when it is believed that the publisher is reasonably required to do so by law or in connection with the collection of a sum of money that may be owed by you and/or to law enforcement authorities whenever the publisher deems it appropriate or necessary. Please note, you may not be provided with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.

 

Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements

 

The publisher of this site expects its partners, advertisers and affiliates to respect the privacy of the site’s users. Be aware, however, that third parties, including the publisher’s partners, advertisers, affiliates and other content providers accessible through the site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to the site you may link to, or view as part of a frame one of this site’s pages, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through this site you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, websites, features, offers or contests offered by other parties. The publisher of this site is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.

 

While on this site, advertisers, promotional partners or other third parties may use cookies or other technology to attempt to identify some of your preferences or retrieve information about you. For example, some advertising on the site may be served by third parties and may include cookies that enable the advertiser to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before. Other features available on the site may offer services operated by third parties and may use cookies or other technology to gather information. The publisher of this site does not control the use of this technology by third parties or the resulting information and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.

 

You should also be aware that if you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on message boards or in chat areas, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without the site publisher’s knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of this site’s publisher and this policy.

 

Children (“minors”)

 

The publisher of this site does not knowingly collect or solicit Personally Identifiable Information from or about minors except as permitted by law. If it is discovered that any information collected from a minor is in violation of this policy, that information will be deleted immediately. If you believe any information has been collected and is being stored from or about anyone who is a minor, please contact the publisher using the contact information listed below.

Information collected prior to the time any change is posted will be used according to the rules and laws that applied at the time the information was collected.
