We Respect Privacy
Our policies are designed to respect privacy and we only collect what information is necessary to fulfill our commitments to you and only when you contact us first.
We have no desire to collect unnecessary information.

While this site does not recognize the Do Not Track signal, we assume that you don't want to be tracked.
No Google Analytics
This site does not use Google Analytics to protect visitor privacy.
The site search function uses Google. StartPage or DuckDuckGo are safer but don't provide the necessary mechanisms.
Notice to European Site Visitors
This site is aimed primarily at Canadian users but it is available world-wide to anyone with an Internet connection.
This site does NOT practice the sort of widespread collection and retention of personal data that GDPR is designed to address.

Information Collection and Use
While using our Site, we do not ask you to provide us with personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you unless you engage our services or request our help.
We retain the right to respond if you contact us.
No Data Collection
We do not collect information about site visitors nor do we share any such information with third parties.
Our correspondence records are generally limited to email stored on our email program unless we do business together. We do not share that information with anyone unless it is required to comply with your requested services. For example, if you request that we contact a vendor or service on your behalf, we will need to provide at least the data to identify you as their customer and our permission to act on your behalf.
We do not maintain any databases or other segregate collections of personal data.
If we do business together, there will necessarily be more personal information collected in order for us to perform any actions such business with us requires.
Such personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, postal address and phone number ("Personal Information").
Our use of that data is governed by the PIPEDA/PIPA statement on this page.
Client personal information that is collected in the performance of services is stored in with that client's working data.
Such data may be deleted or destroyed at our discretion when we consider it no longer useful for the purposes which it was collected.
We reserve the right to correspond to those we have an existing business relationship. We do not engage in spam or similar opt-out marketing practices nor do we respond to such tactics.
We do not currently maintain mailing lists of any kind.
We may pass on information we believe is important to our individual clients or correspond as needed to fulfill our business agreements with them.
We may need to correspond with third parties on your behalf if that is part of the services we are providing to you. This may include corresponding with ISPs or hosting companies or other technical support facilities on your behalf.
In such cases, we will only provide such personal information as is required to accomplish the necessary transactions and it will be subject to the privacy policies of those entities. If you have concerns, you should let us know prior to giving us permission to proceed.
We are subject to the laws of Canada and British Columbia.
Changes to Original Agreement
Note: The original Terms and Conditions Agreement was purchased from TermsFeed. We have modified that agreement to reflect the fact that this Site does not collect the sort of information that most sites do (e.g., cookies and Google Analytics).
We have also added privacy suggestions and the PIPEDA/PIPA statement required by Canadian law.
