Domicile and Hosting of the Site
The Site is hosted in Canada. If you are visiting from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from Canadian law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to Canada and by providing your personal data you consent to that transfer and to our use of that information in accordance with this policy. When you provide personal data to use or our service providers or vendors, you consent to the processing of your data in Canada as the Site is operated in Canada. You acknowledge that the laws of Canada may treat your information in a manner that may be substantially different from, and less protective than, the treatment required under laws of other countries and jurisdictions.

To the extent allowed by the law of the country in which you are located, you expressly waive any right you may have to require us to treat your identifying information in accordance with the laws of any country or jurisdiction other than Canada. However, the foregoing waiver may not be legally binding in some countries such as member states of the European Union. To the extent it is not legally binding in the country in which you are located, this foregoing waiver does not apply to you and is severed from the remaining policy, leaving the rest intact.
