This privacy statement describes how “we” (David T. Michaels, buynotes.ca, Google Analytics) collects and uses the personal and non-personal information that you may provide us.
Information Obtained from Third Parties
If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us and we will not re-distribute personal information.
We will not share your personal information with third parties except in the ways that are described in this privacy statement. We will not sell your personal information to third parties.
We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as processing and shipping your order or offering customer service. These companies will be authorized to only use your personal information as necessary to provide these services to us.
We may also disclose your personal information as required by law such as: to comply with a court order, a subpoena, or similar legal process. If we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, or to investigate a fraud, we may share your information with investigators, lawyers, and a court, if necessary.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
As is true of most websites, both buynotes.ca’s webhosting servers and Google Analytics automatically collect information about your computer such as your IP address, browser type, referring websites, your landing and exit pages, the length of time that you spend on and your operating system type. We can only access aggregate information and we are unable to determine any personnally identifiable information about any particular user. This data is collected from buynotes.ca’s webhosting servers at 1and1.com and by Google Analytics in the United States of America.
We disabled scripts on the Google Plus, Twitter, and Facebook buttons on buynotes.ca, so that these third parties may not obtain any personal identifiable information from you, unless you click on one of these buttons and you are a subscriber to one or more of these third party services.
Cookies are used to collect general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personal information. 1and1.com, buynotes.ca, and Google Analytics may place cookies on your computer to collect non-personally identifiable information to compile aggregated statistics for us about the visitors to our site and they may also use local storage on your browser as newer browsers may permit.
buynotes.ca may contain electronic images known as web beacons, or single-pixel gifs, which may be used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how buynotes.ca is accessed and to let us know whether our marketing emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.
Our Web pages may also contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) that are set by our third party advertising partners. These web beacons may be used along with cookies to enable our partners to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used and whether we refer them any business for their complementary products and services.
We use a third party, such as Google Analytics and 1and1.com, to gather information about how you and others use buynotes.ca. For example, we will know how many users accessed a specific page, how long they stayed on the page, and what page they went to next. We use this aggregated information to understand and optimize how our site is used.
