Some of this information is provided directly by you, while other data is collected passively or automatically as you navigate our site. The collected information encompasses the following:

  • Personally identifying information, such as your email address, website URL, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, is acquired when you submit a form. We use this data solely to respond to your queries and do not share it with any third parties unless required for specific purposes, as described in this policy.

  • In the event of a donation on our website, we collect limited personally identifying information based on the nature of the transaction. We only request information essential for fulfilling your request and do not disclose it beyond the scope outlined in this policy.

  • Google Analytics records anonymized browsing data, navigation paths, and visit times.

  • MailChimp captures your email address when you actively subscribe via our site’s forms. You can modify your email preferences or unsubscribe through the links provided in every email you receive.

  • When we embed videos from Vimeo or YouTube on our site, these platforms may collect browser and IP data, but they do not receive additional personally identifying information (such as your name or email) from us.

International Users

We may transfer the personal data we collect about you to recipients in countries other than your country of residence, including Canada, where our headquarters are located.
