The Coast respects your privacy. Here's our policy for this site and The Coast:
We track how visitors use this site so that we can see what people like and don't like. We also analyze and aggregate information about use patterns and share the collected data with our advertisers (for example, we keep track of how many users see and click on particular advertisements).
Visitors to thecoast.ca may make a profile to comment. Profiles can be deleted and all personal data via the edit profile option once logged in.
We may collect personal information (for example name, address, eddress and telephone number) via registration for contests, surveys and newsletters. We will not, however, release your name, eddress or any other personal information to anyone outside The Coast, i.e. advertisers, unless we have your consent or are compelled to by court order or search warrant.
We may collect personal information and track IP addresses for commenters and other users of the site. We will not release such information to anyone outside The Coast unless we have your consent or are compelled to by court order, search warrant or other legal instruments.
If you enter a contest or other promotion, we use your personal contact information to administer the contest or promotion, including contacting, announcing and promoting prizewinners. Your name may be added to our newsletter list.
We collect credit card information if you make a monthly a contribution. This credit card information is used solely for the purpose of fulfilling your order.
If you use our website, we may assign an internet cookie. An internet cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your internet browser, which can collect and store information. For example, a cookie may recall a set of preferences you have set for our online classified ads. The cookie is invisible to you and is generally intended to improve your internet surfing convenience.
We may place advertising or other links on our site that originate from outside advertisers. If you view these ads, that advertiser may assign a cookie. The Coast does not control these cookies, nor is it responsible for any marketing or any other use of your information by these advertisers.
Occasionally, we ask our users to complete market research surveys. Survey results are aggregates and are shared with our advertisers and sponsors in a manner that does not disclose personal information.
If you are a freelance contributor, we collect your social insurance number for tax reporting purposes and your contact information in order to pay you.
