What personal data we collect and why we collect it

The privacy and protection of all the information we gather is governed by Canadian law, specifically the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). This legislation contains specific provisions about the collection, storage and use of information collected and recognizes the right of individuals to have that information protected and disclosed to them. In addition, this protection extends to other countries that recognize this law’s provisions. We treat your information with care. We will not share or otherwise provide any personal information to any third party except as required for maintaining our website and for processing online transactions. In addition to personal information provided by visitors by filling out and submitting forms or using our site to send us an e-mail, our web servers collect standard information about visits to the site, including date and time, the IP address of the machine being used, and the pages requested. In some cases our server may send a cookie to your browser to identify your machine as having previously connected. In all these cases, the information, although not directly tied to personal information, is also protected. Note also that we do not track your movements on the web (e.g., through ad tracking services) or on our website site in order to serve up ads. We tailor the ads you see based on the content of the page or story you view, not on your personal characteristics.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. If you have any questions about this policy, or any comments about the information we collect or how we collect it, please contact us.
