What information is being collected and how is it used? For online shoppers, data is collected within Canada by Power Plant Smoke Inc. There are various sections of the website, for which we collect different information.
What we collect and how this is used is as follows:
Non Registered Users Power Plant Smoke Inc. powerplantsmoke.com
If you access parts of powerplantsmoke.com we collect information about your use of the site. Essentially this will be which pages you have visited and how long you stay online. We will not be able to identify who you are from the information we store, but we will be able to identify where you are located
What else do we collect when you use our website?
Each time you use the internet, an IP address is assigned to your computer via the internet service provider. This number may either be the same or different each time. Each time your computer requests information from our website, we log your IP address on our server. We may use this in order to gather information about the website traffic and usage. Our web server collects certain information such as (a) IP address; (b) host names (c) domain name (d) time and date information as requested (e) the browser version and platform when it is requested, (f) a record of which pages have been requested.
What else do we use personal information for?
Other than for fulfilling our obligations to you (where these exist), on some occasions we use the information provided to produce aggregate statistics in relation to pages being accessed. We may also use it to monitor usage patterns on the website in order to improve navigation and design features to help you get information more easily. This information is provided to us as daily logged files. In order to help us develop the website and our services, we may provide such aggregate information to third parties. The statistics however will not include any information that can be used to identify any individual.
To whom will personal information be disclosed?
We will not disclose your personal data to any third party. Aggregated data regarding the number or users, position and organization may be used to generate statistical information for our contractors.
How long do we keep the information we collect?
We’ll store your personal data for no longer than one year after purchasing an item.
How is personal information stored and protected?
Your personal data and website usage information is stored by us electronically.
Security: The information we collect about site visitors is stored in secure environments and we do not share any data that identifies any individual, to any other individual or party. We have mechanisms in place to protect data. One such mechanism is called a “firewall”. A firewall is a barrier that allows only authorized traffic through. It safeguards our computer systems and your information. We also use system and application logs to track all access. We review these logs periodically and investigate any anomalies or discrepancies. We understand that the security of your information is important to you. We also understand that our continued success as a retailer on the web, relies on our ability to communicate with you in a secure manner. We adhere to the highest standards of decency, fairness, and integrity in our operations. We use several measures to authenticate your identity when you visit our site. We also take steps to protect your information as it travels the internet, and to make sure all information is as secure as possible against unauthorized access and use (for example, by hackers). We review our security measures regularly.
Despite our best efforts, and the best efforts of other firms, “perfect security” does not exist on the internet, or anywhere else. As a result, whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of the information you transmit to us online. You therefore do so at your own risk.
Once we receive your transmission, we make our best efforts to ensure its security on our system.
Authentication: You should not share your username and password with other people.
Email: Any email between you and Power Plant Smoke Inc. is not encrypted. It will be stored securely within our corporate firewall (see above).
