In order to provide you with the best possible experience on my website, I may also collect demographic and aggregate information from online visitors who access the website. “Demographic information” is anonymous information such as age, gender and geographic location. “Aggregate information” is data about a group or category of services or users from which individual identities have been removed. Demographic and aggregate information is not considered personal information, as it does not permit the identification of an individual.

My website may invite users to provide me with their comments on my services or on certain programs. Users who wish to provide me with their comments will sometimes have the option of also providing me with their name and email address. I do not require users to provide us with such information, however. Comments provided by users may be posted on my websites. Alongside such comments, I may also post the user’s first name and last initial as well as the city and province that this user has indicated he or she is from. However, I will take measures to prevent such postings from containing any additional personal information.
If an online form or an email submitted by a user contains personal information, I will only use such personal information to the extent necessary to respond to any comment or question from such user. I will limit access to such personal information and will keep such personal information in a secure system.
