You can withdraw your consent for the use of identifiable information, like an email address, by unsubscribing from the service for which you provided that information.
Please be advised that this site makes every effort to protect your personal information and abides by the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (also known as PIPEDA), which requires that consent be obtained in all instances where personal information is requested.
What is "Personal Information"?
Simply stated, personal information is factual information that is not already available in a public directory, such as a telephone book; or on your business card. Examples of personal information include age, full name, weight, height, medical records, ID numbers (driver's license, health card), ethnic origin, or blood type.
This site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect information from site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to Websites.
Active Information Collection
Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through a Website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags, and navigational data collection. We use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses on this site. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider so you can access the Internet; it is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user's computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site.
A "cookie" is information that a Web site sends to your Web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences. "Session" cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased upon closing your Web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to improve navigation on Web sites and to collect aggregate statistical information. This site uses session cookies. "Persistent" cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (e.g., passwords), helping to determine what areas of the Web site visitors find most valuable, and customizing the Web site based on your preferences. This site uses persistent cookies.
We work with partners who collect preference data through the use of "third-party cookies". Third-party cookies collect anonymous pieces of information about you based on your use of our site. Anonymous information may include things such as which pages you viewed, how much time you spent on the site, or which country you visited from. This anonymous information does NOT contain any personally identifiable information ("PII") about you. Personally identifiable information such as name, address, telephone number, social security number or e-mail address is NOT collected through the third-party cookies used on this site. The anonymous information collected through third-party cookies is used by our partners to provide a more targeted advertising experience both on and off our websites. This is known as Interest-Based Advertising. With this type of advertising, companies and advertisers try to predict what ads might be the most interesting to you based on your anonymous preference data. Interest Based Advertising helps support sites you visit to provide free content and helps advertisers reach the right people for their products and services.
You, as a consumer, have several choices to control the collection and use of information about your web browsing activities. There are two ways a user can opt-out of the collection and usage of anonymous information through third-party cookies:
- Block all cookies by globally or selectively disabling cookie use in your browser configuration.

"Internet tags" (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the Web site server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor's computer. We use Internet tags at this site. Tags have been placed both on online advertisements that bring people to the site and on different pages of the site. These tags indicate how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted. We do not collect or seek personally identifiable information through these tags.
"Navigational data" ("log files", "server logs", and "clickstream" data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site for market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors. This site uses navigational data.
We are using Google Analytics cookies and have enabled the Demographics and Interest Reporting which provides us with data from Google's Interest-based advertising and 3rd-party audience data (such as age, gender, and interests). This feature allows us to better evaluate who our users are, how their behaviour varies by demographics and interests, and ultimately help us create more appropriate content for our users. You can choose to opt-out of this feature using Google Ads Settings or Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
We follow industry privacy standards for online advertising. The advertisements displayed on our websites are served through one or more reputable third party advertisement-serving companies, including Google. We are using Google Adsense cookies. You can control advertising cookies from Google by using its Ad Preferences Manager, available here: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en. If you are interested in more information about tailored browser advertising and how you control cookies from being put on your computer by other companies you can visit http://youradchoices.ca/.
