It is the intent of CCS to be in compliance with the principles of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act of Canada, the European Union Safe Harbour Act, the Data Protection Act of the United Kingdom, and selected legislation worldwide regarding privacy of data. If any provision of this policy is in conflict with such legislation, the provisions of this policy shall apply, except when otherwise required by law.

CCS uses these statistics to improve site content and usability; this information does not identify visitors personally.

However, when a visitor enters an email address obtained by the means described above on an CCS website for the purpose of requesting services, information production or registration for an event CCS will retain that email address in the CCS customer information system.
