Collection of Personal Information 


Under PIPEDA, personal information includes any any information by which an individual can be identified. 


We collect personal information only when it is provided by you. If you sign up for the email list, register for the Freebie Library or other resources, and/or purchase a product or service from us, we may collect your email address, name, and other personal information you provide. If you fill out a survey and identify yourself, contact us through email, social media, or the contact forms on this site, we may collect additional information from you. We use this information to deliver products or services to you, keep you informed about related products or services, and to track your preferences. 




A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.


Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.


Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
