Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) tells you how we collect information from you on the WHATISCAINZ website (the “Website”), how we use it and with whom we share it. This Privacy Policy describes the principles that govern our information practices and other privacy aspects of the Website. In this Privacy Policy, we refer to information that specifically identifies you or can be used to contact you as “personally identifiable information.” This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by WHATISCAINZ via the Website and does not apply to information collected or obtained by WHATISCAINZ by any other means.

Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to the Website. By using the Website, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. Whenever you submit information to the Website or send information via the Website, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Please note that if you choose to make your member profile viewable by other members (i.e., make such profile “public”) or submit any information or content to the message board, any information or content you submit, including any personally identifiable and/or health information, is public and is therefore not protected by this Privacy Policy because public information or content may be viewed and used by other members in ways we cannot predict or control.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate this Website, certain anonymous information may be passively collected by us (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies.

This Website may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this Website might not work without cookies.

This Website may use and aggregate such passively collected anonymous information to better serve Website visitors, customize the Website, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Website. Such information is not combined with personally identifiable information collected elsewhere on the Website unless you have consented.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

How We May Use Your Information

With respect to the information we collect about you, we may retain and use that information for several purposes. For example, we may use it to process and fulfill any purchases and/or subscriptions you make on the Website (including any customary follow-up or confirmation communications regarding such purchases and/or subscriptions), process your requests, enter you into sweepstakes, establish an account for you, respond to your questions or send emails to our mailing list subscribers. We may also use it to ensure compliance with our policies and applicable law. In addition, we may send you periodic communications by email or regular mail, such as news updates, special promotional offers or information on our products or services which may be of interest to you. If you later wish to opt-out of receiving such promotional communications from us at any time, use the opt-out mechanism provided in such email. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to send you certain non-promotional communications relating to the Website, such as service announcements, email related to purchases you have made, or similar administrative or transactional messages, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.


This Website takes reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as you transmit it to our Website and to protect such information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
