Information and How We Collect It

During normal Internet browsing of our website, you may visit without providing any personal information. However, to make use of certain features such as signing up, providing historical home information, participating in the discussion forums, volunteering or feedback, you will be required to provide us with personal information.

By voluntarily providing this personal information to us you will be consenting to the collection, use and distribution of your personal information by us for the purpose of contacting you directly. You are under no obligation to provide us with this personal information and you can access and enjoy many parts of the HeritageWeston.com website without providing us any personal information. However, for clarity, please understand that by volunteering this personal information you are also agreeing to its collection, use and distribution for the purposes stated below.

The objective of the HeritageWeston.com website is to be your primary destination for information regarding the Weston Heritage Conservation District with related links and topics on the Internet by providing information that is most relevant to you on this endeavor. By registering you may also receive emails concerning events and notification of meetings about the Phase 2 project. The other purpose of the web site is to collect information from registered users, ‘on a voluntary basis’ about their home. This information will be used in the final report for Phase 2 to be submitted to the City of Toronto. To achieve this objective, HeritageWeston.com may need to collect certain information to better serve you.

We do not collect any personally identifying information about you unless you knowingly and specifically supply us this information. We will not disclose any personal information on this website about you to any outside party, unless you have been advised of this possibility before providing the personal information.

We collect information for three purposes: (1) to distribute upcoming meeting and event information: (2) to allow residents of phase 2 to enter information about their homes and other homes they might be researching. This information will be used for the heritage report to be submitted to the City of Toronto; and (3) to help us better understand how our website is utilized by visitors so that we may improve our services. HeritageWeston.com does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.

The collection of this information may be characterized in two categories:

(1) Personal information you provide voluntarily.
(2) Anonymous information about your visit.

Personal information that HeritageWeston.com collects may include information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, address, email address and optional phone numbers. The personal information you provide voluntarily is collected in the online forms you fill out or from emails that you send to us. On our website, where HeritageWeston.com collects this personal information, we make every effort to include a link to this privacy policy so that you may better understand our commitment to you.

The anonymous information we collect may include computer and connection information such as your IP (Internet Protocol) address, and browser and platform types. This collection of information is used to improve the content of our websites and to learn about the traffic patterns throughout our site. Profiles of individual users are never shared, rented or sold. We do not use technologies such as "web bugs" to maintain any information on site visitors.
