Privacy Policy

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, ReferToMe.ca collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ReferToMe.ca’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ReferToMe.ca visitors use its website. From time-to-time, ReferToMe.ca may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

ReferToMe.ca also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. ReferToMe.ca does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to ReferToMe.ca choose to interact in ways that requires RefeToMe.ca to gather personally-identifying information. ReferToMe.ca collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with ReferToMe.ca. ReferToMe.ca does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below or as a result of implied permission when the visitor personally enters such information for public use. If one registers to become a member of ReferToMe.ca, they will be asked to create a profile but will be able to make this profile private by activating the privacy feature on their account page.

Aggregated Statistics

ReferToMe.ca may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

ReferToMe.ca will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information to anyone. ReferToMe.ca discloses potentially personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when ReferToMe.ca believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ReferToMe.ca, third parties, or the public at large. ReferToMe.ca takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying information.
