THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you visit our website, we only collect personal information from you (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, etc.) if you voluntarily provide it to us. Depending on the purpose for which the information was provided, we may use the information to communicate with you regarding our products, services, and promotions, to provide you with other information or materials that you request, to customize your interactive experience, and/or to improve our product and service offerings.
Here are the circumstances in which we might ask for personal information from our consumers though our website, the types of information we obtain, and how we might use the information:
- If you contact one of our Consumer Services Representatives through our website, we may ask you for personal information such as your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address so that we can respond to your questions or comments. (Of course, if you send us an e-mail, we will at a minimum obtain your e-mail address.)
- You may be asked to provide personal information if you:
- register as a user of our website or to post content to our website;
- agree to receive an online newsletter or other information or material from us;
- register for a contest, or other promotion;
- register to receive coupons through our website;
- participate in a survey, a consumer research panel, or similar type of activity; or
- otherwise participate in features of our website that ask for personal information.
Your participation in any of these activities (and therefore your provision of personally identifiable information) is entirely voluntary. We may use the information to respond to your questions or comments, to administer our promotions and websites, to fulfill your request, subscription, or order, to provide you with a customized interactive experience, or to otherwise provide or improve our products and services. Based on the information you provide, we also may obtain additional information about you, such as Canada Post address change data or demographic information, from commercially available sources.
We will not send you any online newsletter or similar e-mail communication unless you expressly consent to receive such a communication from us. And if you do choose to receive any such e-mail communication from us, you will always have the opportunity to “unsubscribe” from receiving the e-mail at any time.
WHO WE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH

We may engage parties located in the United States to help provide our services, but any customer personal information they collect or view remains on servers that reside in Canada.
Personal information is stored in a combination of paper and electronic files. They are protected by security measures appropriate to the nature of the information.
