We recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of personal information we receive and collect when you visit Edquest.ca, and how we safeguard your information. We will never sell your personal information to third parties without your solicitation.
As with most other web servers on the internet, we collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files include which website you were referred from, your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AOL, Comcast or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit our site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited our site and which pages you visited throughout our site.
When you register at Edquest.ca we store all of the information you provide to us on a database server. This server is on a private network and cannot communicate to the Internet. As well, your password is encrypted through several layers using best practices before being saved; this means we will never be able to read your password directly.
Cookies and Web Beacons
We also use third party advertisements on Edquest.ca to support the costs of maintaining our site and our staff. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP , the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can greatly affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as most other websites. This could include the inability to login to our website for longer than a single browser session.
If you have any questions relating to our privacy practices please don't hesitate to contact us.
