HOW INFORMATION IS COLLECTED, & OUR MAILING LIST
Contact Form/Email: If you send us a message via our website contact forms, we require you to enter your first name and email address so that we can respond to your inquiry.

We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see Mailchimp’s privacy statement. You can unsubscribe from general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
HOW INFORMATION IS USED
Any information that you provide us via our website or to our office may be used to provide you with the services that you’ve requested from us including answering your inquiry, and also keeping you informed of future offerings via our mailing list.

Delete / Erase Your Information Completely
You may request at any time the deletion of all the information that we may have for you. We take all removal requests seriously. You may need to be removed from more than one database, and any oversight or delay is purely unintentional and will be corrected.

If you re-join our systems, by voluntarily providing your personal information, you will appear to us as a completely new record.
To request deletion of your personal information, contact us at email@example.com or 604-500-0188 using the email address we hold for you or otherwise proving your identity.
