Who we are
You may visit my site anonymously. In connection with the Services I may request personal information from you (such as your name, street address, telephone number, credit card number, email address) in connection with your use of, or participation in the Sites or Services. I only collect personal information from you if you voluntarily submit such information. I will never intentionally disclose any personal information to any third party without your permission (through opting-in or similar procedures) except as provided for herein or otherwise as permitted or required under Applicable Laws. I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information, except as set forth herein.
I collect your information:
- To personalize your experience;
- To improve our Sites;
- To improve customer service; and
- To process transactions.
I may contact you based on the information you provide online in connection with the Services or use the information in connection with the performance of the Services. I will share information with necessary third parties for the purpose of carrying out the Services. Your participation in the Services constitutes your consent to such disclosure and use of such information. In the event that your personal information is requested as part of my surveys, polls or promotions, such personal information may be added to your registration information.
If you give me your permission or otherwise “opt-in”, I may use personal information for marketing and promotional purposes. I will give you an opportunity to “opt-in” at the time our request for your personal information is made. Please note, however, that under certain circumstances, if you initially do not choose to “opt-in” or if you later “opt-out,” you may not be eligible for certain benefits or Services for which personal information is required.
These policies have the following exceptions: I will release specific information to comply with any valid legal inquiry or process or any Applicable Laws. I will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the Sites or a physical or property threat to you or others. I may provide access to your personal information to our contractors who are performing services for me in connection with my Sites or the Services that you have requested. Any information you provide when making a purchase will be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, credit card companies and any other necessary third parties. If you publicly post personal information on our Sites, that information can be collected and used by third parties. Although I strive to protect my users’ privacy, I cannot guarantee the security of information you post on the Sites and have no control over how such third parties may use your information. You disclose such information at your own risk. I strongly suggest that you never post your last name, address or telephone on my Sites.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information and password. You shall be responsible for all uses of your account, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to notify me immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or password.
If you are within the European Union or the State of California, see below (Opt-Out and GDPR / CCPA) to understand the choices you have about the ways I use your personal information.
NONPERSONAL IDENTIFICATION INFORMATION
I may collect non-personal information through the use of, without limitation, cookies, IP address tracking and web beacons.
Nonpersonal information might include the browser you use, the type of computer you use, your operating system or your internet service provider. My systems may also automatically gather information about your location, the areas you visit and search terms you use on our Sites and about the links you may select from within my Sites to other areas of the web or elsewhere online.
I use such information for my business purposes, to administer the Sites, to better manage advertising on the Sites, to understand how my users use our Sites and to improve my Sites.
I may aggregate and share non-personal information with my partners, suppliers, and other third parties, but i will not share any individual names, personal navigational or other personal information without your consent and I maintain control how your non-personal information will be used. For example, I may use a third-party advertising company to customize ads and share demographic and preference information to display advertisements appropriate for you. I may contract with a third-party web analytics provider to help optimize my Sites.
More About IP Addresses: An “IP address” is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. It is used to identify your computer’s “location” in cyberspace, so that the information you request can be delivered to you. IP addresses do not include your name, email address, or other information that identifies you personally, but in some cases, they can be used to identify you. For example, if you have registered with this Site, we may link your IP address to account information that identifies you personally. I may also provide your IP address to our third-party service providers who can use it to identify your state and zip code. This gives me valuable demographic information about the individuals who use this Site. In addition, if I suspect inappropriate or criminal activity or a threat to the security of this Site or its users, I may share our server logs—which contain users’ IP addresses—with the appropriate investigative authorities, who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.
OPT-OUT AND GDPR / CCPA
I provide opportunities to unsubscribe/opt-out from my Services in all newsletters and marketing emails and you may choose to do so at any time.
If you live in the European Union or the State of California, you may also use the unsubscribe/opt-out features to request that I redact your personal information from my records. I will comply within a reasonable time and, in any case, within the time limits established by applicable law. I may ask you for additional information to verify your identity. In some cases, however, I may limit or deny your request if the law permits or requires me to do so or if I am unable to verify your identify.
At my discretion, I may determine that your lack of engagement in the Services indicates your desire to opt-out of the Services. For example, you may be removed from my email list if you have not opened an email from me for a certain period of time. You may opt-in again at any time.
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION?
I will retain your information indefinitely until you opt-out, request removal or redaction, or I choose to remove it.
PRIVACY OF CHILDREN
I am in compliance with the requirements of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. The Sites are not directed to children under the age of 13 and therefore I will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13.
I require users under 18 to obtain the consent of a parent or guardian to view the Sites. You agree to abide by any such restrictions and not to help anyone avoid these restrictions.
By using the Sites, you assume the risk of an unauthorized security breach. Even though I take prudent and reasonable measures to secure your personal information, my servers and my physical premises, I cannot guarantee that my efforts will be completely effective.
CONSENT TO TRANSFER
The Sites are operated from Canada. If you are located outside of the Canada, be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to Canada. By using my Sites, participating in any of the Services and/or providing me with your information, you consent to this transfer.
CHANGES IN SITE OWNERSHIP
In the event of a merger, acquisition, or sale of any of our assets or the Sites, you consent to the disclosure to, and use by, any subsequent owner or operator of the Sites, of any information about you contained in our databases.
