About Canadian Privacy Protection
This privacy policy has been developed to meet the compliance standars established by Canada's Personal Information Protection and the Electronic Documents Act.

Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act
Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act respects an individual's right to privacy while recognizing the need for industry and organizations to collect, use and disclose personal information. This law addresses two primary areas of concern. The first provides rules to govern the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by the private sector. The second acknowledges the validity and legality of electronic documents.

For more information regarding this legislation, please visit the official Web site of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada or the Electronic Commerce branch of Industry Canada.

We want our users to always be aware of any information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.
