What information do you Give?
Any information you voluntarily provided is received and stored on my Website. I use the data as deemed purposes to respond to your requests, provide services and communicating with you unless you permit me to use it in another manner, for example, to add you to one of my mailing lists.
Automatic Information: Whenever you interact with me on the Website, certain types of information is stored. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies,” other technologies to keep track of the web searches you make while visiting this Website, as well as your web surfing behaviour on this Website and other websites you may visit to enhance your online experience and to learn about how you use the Web Site to improve the quality of our services or serve appropriate advertising. I obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our sites.
Examples of the Information collected and analyzed include the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our Website, including date and time.
Your IP addresses are used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Personal information is not being collected via cookies; however, if you previously provided personally identifiable information, cookies may be tied to such information. Aggregate cookie and tracking information may be shared with third parties. In some cases, third-party advertising companies are used to serve ads when you visit our Website.
These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
Cookies: There may be information logged using cookies, which are small data files stored on your browser by the Website. Both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted, could be used to provide you with a more personalized experience on the Website.

The information collected may be used in the following ways:
- To operate and maintain the Website;

How does Third-Party Use Your Personal Information?
When you explicitly authorize to share your information, it may be shared with third parties. Additionally, the Website may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Website. Their respective privacy policies dictate each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information.
The Website currently uses the following third-party service providers:
Google Analytics – This service tracks Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but Google Analytics captures no other personal information.
At this time, your personal information is not shared with any other third-party applications. This list may be amended from time to time in the Website’s sole discretion.
Except when required by law, I will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent; however, I may disclose or transfer personal information collected through the Website to third parties who acquire all or a portion of my business, which may be the result of a merger, consolidation, or purchase of all or a portion of my assets, or in connection with any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding brought by or against me.
Affiliate Program Participation
The Website may engage in affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Website. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions.
On the Website, you may subscribe to my newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, I may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behaviour will not be passed on to third parties.
