Privacy Policy

EcoParent is committed to providing our users and community with a web site that respects their privacy.

Any personal or other information you provide is protected under the federal Privacy Act of Canada. This means that, at the point of collection, you will be informed that your personal information is being collected, the purpose for which it is being collected and that you have a right of access to the information.

We do not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, e-mail or address. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, signing up to receive our newsletter or other electronic communications, or registering in a secure portion of the site.

We use software that receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that has contacted our Web site. Our newsletter also utilizes a non-obtrusive tracking mechanism, for the purposes of collecting statistics, which does not and cannot collect any personal information from you. We make no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting our site.

We do not regularly use "cookies" to track how our visitors use the site. Whenever we enable "cookies" to facilitate your transactions, we will first inform you.

Visitor information is not disclosed to anyone except EcoParent personnel who need the information, e.g., to respond to a request.

If you participate in EcoParent's online activities such as discussion forums, reviews, classified ads, etc. we may ask you to volunteer personal information such as your name and email address for the purposes of effective administration of such activities. In some cases, our groups are limited to member only discussions and as such cannot be accessed by the general public.

If we alter our privacy policy in any way we will post those changes here so you can be aware of anything that may affect you in the way we disclose information.

For questions or comments regarding this policy please contact us. Additional information about Canada's Privacy Act can be found here.
