You may find that some parts of the site will not function properly if you have refused cookies. We use this Usage Data to collect statistical information and to help us to understand how our Website is used (e.g., which pages or sections are most popular and when are the peak activity times), which assists us in planning for future improvements to the Website.

Web Beacons: Our Website may also use small pieces of software code called "web beacons" or "clear gifs" to collect anonymous and aggregate advertising matrix, such as counting page views, promotion views, or advertising responses. A web beacon is an electronic image called a single-pixel or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information, such as a user’s cookie number, time and date of a page view, and description of the page where the web beacon is placed. You may render some web beacons unusable if you choose to reject their associated cookies. These web beacons may be used to deliver cookies that conform to our cookie policy above.

Except as expressly set out in this Privacy Policy, we will not sell, rent, transfer or otherwise disclose any of your personal information to any third party without your consent.

Third Party Processors: Certain personal information may be transferred among our family of companies or other third parties solely for the purposes of responding to your question, concern, or request.  We may also transfer (or otherwise make available) your personal information to third parties who provide services on our behalf.  We may store and process personal information in Canada and the United States, or in any other country in which we (or any of our parents, affiliates, subsidiaries, or agents) maintains facilities.  All of our service providers are required to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal information and to use it only in compliance with applicable data privacy laws, and are prohibited from using or disclosing your personal information for any purpose other than providing the services on our behalf or as otherwise required by applicable law.

Third Party Websites and Advertisers

The Website may include links to third party websites. The inclusion of any link does not imply our endorsement of any other company, its websites, or its products and/or services.  These third parties have separate and independent privacy policies, which we recommend you read carefully.  Any personal information you share with these third parties through their websites will be administered under their privacy policies.  We have no control over third party websites and therefore have no responsibility or liability for the manner in which such third parties may collect, use or disclose and otherwise treat your personal information.


Security of Personal Information

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards in an effort to protect against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of personal information in our custody and control. We have implemented measures in an effort to maintain the confidentiality of all personal information in our custody and control, including only providing access to personal information to employees and authorized service providers who require such information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. We will only keep your personal information for as long as it remains necessary or relevant for the purposes stated above or as otherwise required by law.

To provide you with increased online security, access to your personal information may be protected by a user name and/or password. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (including unsolicited correspondence such as letters, phone calls or e-mail messages).


Changes to our Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy may be updated periodically to reflect changes to our personal information practices. The revised Privacy Policy will be posted on the Website. We will treat your personal information in accordance with the privacy policy in place at the time of collection of such information, or as you otherwise consent.
