This site is owned and operated by TeamAyden (Canada). Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At TeamAyden, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
Definition of the Information TeamAyden gathers and keeps track of.
TeamAyden gathers two types of information about users:
TeamAyden gathers information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions that include but are not limited to receiving our electronic newsletters, requesting information through forms, participating in message boards or forums, emailing a friend or participating in polls and surveys;
Information TeamAyden gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help us better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does TeamAyden divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.
TeamAyden Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
OPTIONAL VOLUNTARY INFORMATION
We may offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
Online Forms - We offer several online forms for requesting information such as contact us, leave a message or electronic newsletter signups. Users must provide the necessary contact and other information in order for us to respond to their request.
Electronic newsletters (Dispatches) - We may offer a free electronic newsletter to users. TeamAyden gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the "unsubscribe" link provided in every newsletter. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
"E-mail this to a friend" Service - Our site users may choose to electronically forward a link, page, or documents to someone else. The user may have to provide their email address, as well as that of the recipient. This information would be used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the email. The information is not used for any other purpose.
Polling - We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. CCA may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
Surveys - TeamAyden may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
CHILDREN we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
USAGE TRACKING TeamAyden tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users.
TeamAyden uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience on our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls, surveys, message boards, and forums. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. TeamAyden never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users. But we don't track which terms a particular user enters.
SHARING OF THE INFORMATION
TeamAyden uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
TeamAyden operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.
Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users.
