Web analytics is the collection, analysis, measurement and reporting of data about web traffic and website visits for the purposes of understanding and optimizing website usage. We carry out web analytics to help determine how we can improve our website to better serve our customers.

We carry out web analytics using services from the third-party service provider Google Inc. (Google Analytics). This service provider is based in the United States, which means that the personal information collected is transmitted outside of Canada and may be subject to U.S. laws, including the USA Patriot Act. In addition, Google operates servers in other countries on which it may process the web analytics data. Consequently, the data may be subject to the governing legislation of those jurisdictions.

To track visits to our website for web analytics, Google Analytics requires the use of digital markers (“sessions” and “persistent cookies”) to collect standard Internet log information and to track visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address, truncated to ensure your anonymity) is transmitted to Google. No personally identifying information is recorded or provided to Google.
If you wish, you may opt out of having your visit tracked by doing one of the following:

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
