We Updated Our Privacy Policy
On May 25th, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (herein referred to as "GDPR") took effect changing how the privacy of internet users is handled not only in the European Union, but across the globe.

In Canada, we have strict rules protecting the privacy of internet users, so we already comply with many of the new GDPR rules. One of the main differences between Canadian privacy law and the GDPR involves giving internet users the ability to view and delete all personally identifiable information collected online.

We like the new policy, and want to comply because your rights are very important to us. So we've updated our privacy policy to comply with the GDPR.
