I am committed to providing quality information within a trusted environment. Protecting your privacy and safety are an integral part of our service to you.
I respect the security and privacy of my users. Your personal information will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent unless mandated by law.
The Internet, Privacy, and Me
The Internet contains a wealth of information, unfortunately, it may also contain personal details about you that you don't want everyone to know. For example, your real name (lots of people on the Internet use aliases, alter egos or nicknames), street address, phone number, or e-mail address. When you go online, sites you visit may be gathering information about you without your knowledge. I strive to help my customers protect their privacy while using my services.
My policy is to respect and protect the privacy of my users. This policy statement tells you how I collect information from you and how I use it. Using the Internet should be a fun experience and I want to keep it that way.
The information you provide for your personal account is shared among the site as it is our goal to make your visits to our site easy and enjoyable. However, be assured that I will not disclose your personal information to any third parties without your consent. I may disclose user information in special cases when I have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) my rights or property, other clients, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. I may disclose user information when I believe in good faith that the law requires it.
I may share aggregate information about my users with advertisers, business partners, sponsors and other third parties. For example, I will say our audience is x percent females and y percent males. This data is used to customize our content and advertising to deliver a better experience for my users.
There are cases where I may ask you for personal information such as your name, email and address. For example, I request personal information when you register as a member for the website. I need to collect this information for fulfilling your request and tracking/verifying compliance with my policies as well as federal, provincial and local laws and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes.
In case you change your mind or some personal information changes (such as your contact information), I will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove the personal data you give me.
At any time, you may opt out of, or discontinue, any services you had previously requested. Go to the Contact Me page and use your preferred method to advise me of your preferences.
Use of IP Address
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers -- the big computers that "serve up" Web pages -- automatically identify your computer by its IP address.
I may collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to improve my service, and to audit the use of our site. When users request pages from my sites, my servers may log the guests' IP addresses. I do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to me. I can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when I feel it is necessary to protect my service, site, customers or others.
By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies help me see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. I use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to my users needs.
I place a high priority on security. My computer system uses a combination of hardware and software designed to protect against unauthorized entry and loss, theft, or misuse of personal information. Although I make every effort to protect personal information, no computer system is immune from hackers and others who might misuse information. I am not responsible for any breach of security that is beyond my reasonable control.
Personal information gathered from registration forms (such as name, email or street address) is used to send information directly to my office by email. This information is not stored on this website.
Links to Other Sites
Users should be aware that when you are on my site, you could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. There are links to other sites from my pages that take you outside my service. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information.
Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information that information can be collected and used by people you don't know. I cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.
My policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond my control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
