IWHC.CA respects the privacy of the visitors to our sites on the Internet. IWHC.CA does not automatically collect any personally identifiable information from its visitors. Instead, names, addresses, email addresses and other personal information are obtained only when voluntarily submitted, such as when visitors fill out contest entry forms, subscribe to newsletters, respond to user surveys, or purchase merchandise or services online. Submitting personal information is not necessary to visit and use this or any IWHC.CA site, but may be necessary to participate in interactive aspects of the sites, such as contests and purchases. IWHC.CA does not sell or otherwise disclose to any outside parties any personal information that is provided to us, although IWHC.CA may sometimes use the information to add to our own mailing lists for newsletters and other mailings. IWHC.CA also may at times conduct contests or other promotions that are sponsored by or with outside parties. By virtue of the sponsorship, these outside parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit in order to enter the contest or other promotions. IWHC.CA has no control over the outside sponsors’ use of this information. IWHC.CA will, however, provide notice to visitors when parties other than IWHC.CA will have access to personal information submitted in connection with this site.

While IWHC.CA does not obtain personal information from visitors to its Web sites unless it is voluntarily provided to us, we do use “cookies” and other technology to record certain non-personal information. This information is used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor, and may include the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system being used by the visitor (e.g., Macintosh, Windows), and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Netcom). Non-personal information may also be used to count the number of visitors to the sites, but only in an aggregate form that does not personally identify any visitor. Likewise, personal information that is provided to us voluntarily may be aggregated and used for marketing, advertising, and other purposes in a manner that does not disclose the personal information of any individuals. We do not use “cookies” or similar technology to collect or cross-relate personal information about our visitors.

A Special Note For Parents Concerning Privacy

IWHC.CA asks that children under 13 years of age not submit personal information on this site and encourages all children to consult with their parents before furnishing personal information on this site or any other site on the Internet. Technology is not currently available, however, that would enable IWHC.CA to restrict children under 13 from submitting personal information without unduly limiting the ability of other visitors to interact with us and others online. Consequently, IWHC.CA suggests that parents supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers. Among other things, these tools can prevent children from disclosing personal information online without parental permission.
