The personal data we collect and why we collect it

Contact forms

If you make a submission through one of our contact forms, your data is passed directly to one of our agents via email. There are no third party companies involved in this. All of our agents and our website manager(s) are residents of Newfoundland.

From time to time, websites can get breached/hacked by unscrupulous people. While this has never happened to our site, it is always a possibility. Because of this our data collection forms only ask you to submit the minimum information that is required for us to contact you. Any sensitive or personal information that is required will usually be collected via phone/fax or by posted mail.

We generally only ask for your name, Phone / Email info, and your age.

We will never ask for your SIN number, Credit Card Number, or MCP number through our website. In the unlikely event that you see such a request in one of our contact forms, it indicates possible malicious activity. Don’t fill it in.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
