We protect personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access and alteration by using standard security practices and tools and internal policies and practices consistent with practices for similar types of services. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, and no means of electronic or physical storage, is absolutely secure, and thus we cannot ensure or warrant the security of that information. We may use third-party service providers to process or handle personal information on our behalf, such as in processing payments. Some of our service providers may be located outside of Canada and subject to foreign legislation. We will use contractual or other means to provide the highest available level of protection while personal information is being processed by a third party.
