What information of yours do we collect?
We only collect anonymous information about visitors to our site. That is, only information that CANNOT be used to identify the visitor. This includes information sent to us by your browser and information contained in cookies that we sent to your web browser.
All web browsers reveal the following information when you visit any site:
- Your IP address
- Your operating system
- Your browser type
We use this information to improve our service. For example, all browsers display pages differently. We could use the browser information to design our pages for a particular browser. No attempt is ever made to identify individual users.
What are “cookies” and how do you use them?
A cookie is a small text file that your web browser stores on your hard drive. It contains a small bit of information that lets our website identify your web browser the next time you visit the site. Cookies can only contain information sent to it by the website. They cannot be used to get other information from your computer.
Your web browser has an option that allows you to ‘turn off’ the cookies.
How do we use the information it collects?
Information is used to track the number of times pages are displayed. We use this to determine the subject of future articles. What are the policies concerning links to other sites?
We provide links to sites with business and other articles that may be of interest to our clients. However, we have no control over the information on these sites. While we make every effort to link to reputable sites and information, we cannot guarantee that the material presented on these sites is still accurate or suitable for general viewing.
We also link to community organizations and local Comox Valley area businesses that we feel would be of interest to our visitors. These links are provided as a service only. They should not be seen as an endorsement of any organization or business. While we do entertain requests to link to sites, we reserve the right to refuse to link to any site. No reason will be given.
Who collects the information for us?
