Information We Collect
We collect some information which is not attributable to an identifiable individual. For example, when you visit one of our websites, our web server automatically recognizes only your computer’s domain name, but not your e-mail address or any other information that identifies you personally. This renders your visit virtually anonymous, unless you volunteer your personal information in connection with your visit.
We may also collect anonymous aggregate information on what pages you access or visit. The aggregate information we collect is used for many different purposes in order to serve you better. Among these purposes are to improve the content of our website, provide services such as technical support, and to customize the content and/or layout of our website for each individual visitor.
Collection of Personal Information
From time to time we may also ask you to provide your personal information, including when you visit our website, submit an inquiry, log in as a producer, or engage with us for promotional purposes. We only collect your personal information with your consent. For example, we may collect the following personal information about you: name, email address, mailing address and telephone number.
How We May Use Your Personal Information
We use personal information for the purposes stated or implied at the time of collection, including to confirm your identity, provide you with services, complete transactions that you initiate, respond to your inquiries, to meet the legal and regulatory requirements applicable to us and to improve our business. We may otherwise use your personal information where permissible by law, for example to respond to an emergency, or in the course of an investigation into illegal behavior.
Where applicable, we will seek your express consent to send you information, including by way of commercial electronic messages. This consent is sought by L. H. Gray & Son Limited at RR#7, Strathroy Ontario, N7G 3H8. You can unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions in the commercial electronic message, or by contacting us at email@example.com.
Please be aware that, even if you have opted out of receiving marketing communications from us, we may still contact you for other purposes. For example, we may contact you to provide communications you have consented to receive, regarding the services we provide to you, or if you contact us with an inquiry.
Transfers and Disclosures of Personal Information
We will not disclose personal information to any external organization without your consent unless we are required to do so by law. We may also disclose your personal information in the event of a corporate amalgamation, reorganization, change of control or sale.
We sometimes use third party service providers that assist us to provide products and services and to administer your account. Whenever we hire other organizations to provide support services, they will be required to conform to our privacy standards and to allow us to audit them for compliance.
Security and Retention
We take all reasonable steps to protect the security and confidentiality of your personal information. We protect the personal information within our custody or control with appropriate organizational, technological and physical safeguards.
We store personal information in electronic and physical files that are secure, and our security measures include secure on- and off-site storage, restricted access to records and data processing equipment, password protocols, and encryption and security software. We conduct audits and monitor compliance with our privacy practices.
We only retain personal information for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. When we no longer are required to retain the information, we will destroy, erase, or de-identify the information. Legal requirements, however, may require us to retain some or all of the personal information we hold for a period of time that is longer than that for which we might otherwise hold.

Important Note to Children: Before providing your name, address, email address, or any other personal information to anyone on the Internet, be sure to ask your parents if it is okay.
