When you order our newsletter, we may ask for your name, address, e-mail address, and other demographic information so that we can gather knowledge of who our customers are, what they want, and administer to their needs promptly. We tailor our site to the interest of our customers by using their orders to shape our recommendations about services (for example, types of funding available in specific Canadian locations) that might be of interest to them. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site. We may also occasionally use the information we collect to notify you about important changes in the functioning of our web site, new services and special offers that we think you will find useful. If you would rather not receive this information, you can contact us at any time at email@example.com. We might occasionally ask you to tell us about your experience with us. These short surveys will be completely optional. None of this data is associated with any individual's name. We then work with this anonymous data to tailor our future offers to your needs and to the needs of our future customers.
