These obligations extend to all Canadian businesses including Efficiency Engineering Inc. (EE). PIPEDA gives you rights concerning the privacy of your personal information. EE is responsible for the personal information we collect and hold. To ensure this accountability, we have developed this policy.

Privacy on the Internet
This privacy statement is applicable to all EE web-sites. EE respects the privacy of its Internet users and will protect that privacy as vigorously as possible.
EE does not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, e-mail or address. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, or registering in a secure portion of the site.
Any personal information you do provide is protected under the federal Privacy Act. This means that, at the point of collection, you will be informed that your personal information is being collected, the purpose for which it is being collected and that you have a right of access to the information.
Individual information provided to EE to gain access to any EE site will not be sold or made available to any third party.
EE does reserve the right, however, to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of its sites so as to improve design and navigation and to gather marketing information. Only aggregated data from these analyses, not individual data, will be used for this purpose.
As well, users should be aware that certain non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by EE through the operation of cookies. “Cookies” are small text files that identify an individual computer’s browser entering a web site. They allow the site to track that browser’s movement through the site over several sessions. Through cookies, a web site can recognize repeat users, facilitate the user’s access to and use of the site and allow a site to track usage behaviour that will allow content improvements.
If you do not want a cookie placed on your computer by EE, you may disable cookies altogether by modifying the Preferences section of your browser. Note that it is possible that some aspects of EE sites may be unavailable to you if you choose this option.
If you have no problem accepting cookies, but wish to be informed of their appearance, you may turn on a warning prompt by modifying the cookie warning section in Edit/Preferences/Advanced.
