How we collect information about you

Finally, we may collect additional information from or about you in other ways not specifically described here. For example, we may collect information related to your contact with our support team or store results when you respond to a survey.
We send a “session cookie” to your computer when you log in to your account. This type of cookie helps us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages on our site during the same session, so that we don’t need to ask you for your password on each page. Once you log out or close your browser, this cookie expires and no longer has any effect.
We also use longer-lasting cookies for other purposes such as to display your e-mail address on our support request form, so that you don’t need to retype these basic details each time you log in to your account.
We encode our cookies so that only we can interpret the information stored in them. You are free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may interfere with your use of our website features. We may also collect information about your computer or other access devices to mitigate risk and for fraud prevention purposes.
How we protect and store personal information
Throughout this policy, we use the term “personal information” to describe information that can be associated with a specific person and can be used to identify that person. We do not consider personal information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not identify a specific individual.
We store and process your personal information on our computers in Canada and the US, and we protect it by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable federal and provincial regulations. We use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, we enforce physical access controls to our buildings and files, and we authorize access to personal information only for those employees who require it to fulfill their job responsibilities.

How we share personal information with other parties
We may share your personal information with:
