    Cookies

    Cookies are small data files that are sent to your browser and stored on your computer's hard-drive when you visit certain web sites, thereby "tracking" your use of the website. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information other than your IP address and server location. We use cookies to analyze web traffic and allow you to access certain areas of our website and to give you maps and locations of contractors if you request. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can set your browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent.

    Use of Information

    The Company uses personal information of visitors to our website in order to respond to your request or, if you checked the opt-in box, to send you Promotional Mailings.

    The Company may also use your personal information to create aggregated information that does not allow you to be personally identified or contacted. Rather than showing individual activity, aggregated information shows user behaviour as a whole (for example, information might be compiled in order to calculate the number of customers living in certain geographic areas). Aggregated information is used to evaluate the use of our website for development of the website, new products and services and marketing initiatives. The Company may disclose aggregated information to its affiliates and to agents appointed by it for purposes of administration or operation of the website.

    When We Disclose Your Personal Information

    Except as provided in this Privacy Policy, the Company does not disclose, give, rent or sell your personal information collected through the website to any third party. Access to your personal information is restricted to selected Company employees, representatives, contractors, dealers, suppliers or agents ("Agents").

    Agents appointed by the Company to assist with or operate the website, administer your requests, provide the information you are seeking or administer the Company's marketing programs will have access to your personal information for these purposes. Such Agents are required by the Company to comply with the provisions of this Privacy Policy and are prohibited from disclosing personal information to third parties except as required by law.

    The Company reserves the right to co-operate fully with local, provincial and federal officials in any investigation relating to any personal information (including private electronic communications transmitted on the Company website) or any purported unlawful activities.

    The Company reserves the right to disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual sale, merger or other transfer of the assets or shares of the Company, an affiliate or division thereof, provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the principles expressed in this Privacy Policy and the personal information does not constitute all or substantially all of the assets being transferred.

    How We Protect Your Personal Information

    The Company makes all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that personal information collected from you is protected against loss and unauthorized access. Personal information is collected and stored in a secure manner as required by the Company.

    Retention and Destruction of Personal Information

    Documents regarding your personal information will be retained only for the period required by law or as operationally necessary and then destroyed/erased in a confidential manner.

    Links to Third Party Website

    The website may offer links to other websites. You should be aware that operators of linked websites might also collect your personal information (including information generated through the use of cookies) when you link to their websites. The Company is not responsible for how such third parties collect, use or disclose your personal information, so it is important to familiarize yourself with their privacy policies before providing them with your personal information.
