Privacy and Security
What Information is Collected on our Website
At TIPTOP.ca, we believe your privacy when using our web site is paramount. To enhance your TIPTOP.ca visit and inform you about the latest developments at TIPTOP.ca, we collect the following information:
Every time you visit the site, the following non-personally identifiable information is automatically obtained and compiled: the internet protocol (IP) address, the domain name registry information associated with the IP address, your internet browser, operating system and hardware platform, the date and time of your visit, the name and address (URL) of the web page you viewed immediately prior to accessing the current page, your entire query (if any) that was entered into a search engine which led you to the current site and any other “click stream” data. This information is stored in our log files. Additionally, the complete record of your actions at the web site including all pages visited, time spent at each page, the information sent or received and the names of all files uploaded or downloaded are available. This tracking information may be compiled by us in the aggregate and made available to third parties primarily to identify demographic data regarding our visitors.
It is important to note that IP addresses do not necessarily reveal the identity of an individual visitor. Since most individuals connect through an internet service provider at home, the IP address would identify the internet service provider and not that actual person. Users should refer to these specific instructions accompanying their browsers to ensure that personal information is not automatically being provided without their agreement.
Small text files that record your computer's unique IP address and information to help us keep track of those parts of the site that are visited most frequently. Cookies don't contain any personal information and cannot be accessed by anyone outside TIPTOP.ca.
You can choose either to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent or to turn off all cookies. This is done through your browser settings. However, if you disable the cookie function, your experience on the site might be limited as, amongst other things, we will not recognize you as a past visitor or a registered user.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with our site, contact us at service@TIPTOP.ca.
You may opt to join our mailing list. When you submit your email address to use we assume that you want to be contacted regarding promotions and offers at TIPTOP.ca. When you join our mailing list we respect your privacy and do not share your address with any third companies without your permission. If you at any time decide that you don't want to receive any future mailings, simply send an email to privacy@TIPTOP.ca.
When we run contests on our site, we occasionally ask visitors for contact information so we can get in touch with them when necessary.
