What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Browsing our online catalogue does not require you to login however we do provide additional downloads, freebies and information that will require you create and account and log in. Should you wish to purchase online, you will be required to create and account register with us. When you register, we will provide you with a password-secured customer login that can be used for subsequent visits or for order inquiry purposes.
We strongly advise that you do not share your personal login information with anyone. Registration is free and anyone may register, so really, there’s no need to share.
Any user that creates an account using false information will be automatically deleted. Examples of false information are email addresses appearing in any spam user database, address either blank or filled in by a single character(s), street address of 123 Anywhere, phone number of 123-456-7890, etc.
We do not use your information for anything other than assessing whether or not taxes should have been charged on a purchase, regardless of the value of the purchase, as per Canadian accounting requirements.

Data Used: If Akismet is enabled on the site, the contact form submission data — IP address, user agent, name, email address, website, and message — is submitted to the Akismet service (also owned by Automattic) for the sole purpose of spam checking. The actual submission data is stored in the database of the site on which it was submitted and is emailed directly to the owner of the form (i.e. the site author who published the page on which the contact form resides). This email will include the submitter’s IP address, timestamp, name, email address, website, and message.
Data Synced: Post and post meta data associated with a user’s contact form submission. If Akismet is enabled on the site, the IP address and user agent originally submitted with the comment are synced, as well, as they are stored in post meta.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

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.
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.
