Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Fathers Canada public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Fathers Canada does not read any of your private online communications.

Fathers Canada encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from Fathers Canada so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. Fathers Canada is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the Fathers Canada and Fathers Canada family of Web sites.

Use of your Personal Information

Fathers Canada also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Fathers Canada and its affiliates. Fathers Canada may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

Fathers Canada does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Fathers Canada may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Fathers Canada may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Fathers Canada, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

Fathers Canada does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

Fathers Canada keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Fathers Canada, in order to determine what Fathers Canada services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Fathers Canada to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Fathers Canada Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Fathers Canada or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Fathers Canada; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Fathers Canada, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Fathers Canada Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Fathers Canada pages, or register with Fathers Canada site or services, a cookie helps Fathers Canada to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Fathers Canada Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Fathers Canada features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Fathers Canada services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Fathers Canada secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Fathers Canada secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

Fathers Canada will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Fathers Canada encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how Fathers Canada is protecting your information.
