Privacy and security policy
We do not sell, trade, transfer, rent or exchange your personal information with anyone. We only collect information necessary from web use and our contact form to best provide professional services to clients and customers. We are dedicated to maintaining both a high standard of privacy and a high standard of data protection in all of our activities. As a web services provider, we keep valuable and sensitive information, such as websites files, contact information, and financial data safe. It’s a responsibility we take very seriously. We also must consider the responsibility of ensuring that thorough security measures and strong passwords are in effect in the systems we manage. Cookies are used in order to improve the website to give you the best experience. Your continued use of this website confirms you agree with the use of cookies from Google and WordPress. Personally identifiable information is not collected without your knowledge. We take every precaution to protect users’ information. Please note that contact forms on the web use email through the Internet and so may not be secure with sensitive information. We must balance that respect for the privacy rights of our customers and contractors with my responsibilities in the administration of our services. This policy is based on Canada’s PIPEDA legislation.


Accessibility & Usability Practises
In line with Ontario’s Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), these pages have been constructed to “transform gracefully”, in other words, they: 1) separate structure from presentation. They use Cascading Style Sheets to control much of the presentation. 2) all content is provided as text; when images, audio or video files are used, they are given equivalent alternatives. 3) documents do not rely on one type of hardware. Users can access the site with a variety of browser technologies, mobile devices, screen resolutions and settings, with or without mice, etc. 4) all attempts have been made to ensure that the content is understandable and navigable. There is a standardized site menu that indicates where you are within the site structure. Remember, we each will have a disability one day even if from just getting old.


Commenting Guidelines
When posting on this site and related social networks let’s engage, help others, and give constructive criticism. Let’s commit to building and strengthening relationships based on ongoing dialogue and mutual respect. Please be legal, respectful, relevant, and aware. 1) Be legal. Do not post comments that are libelous, defamatory, obscene, abusive or contain otherwise illegal content. 2) Be respectful. You should not make others feel unsafe or unwelcome. You should not threaten, written or otherwise, others. 3) Be relevant. Your comments should be on-topic and not self-promoting (unless that’s the topic). 4) Be aware. This site and related social media accounts are not monitored 24/7. Posts may be moderated and decisions should be considered final. Postings are subject to all applicable Federal and Provincial legislation. This includes, but is not limited, to the Criminal Code of Canada and the Ontario Human Rights Code. See more about how the Canadian Criminal Code and other jurisdictions interpret interpersonal communications online. Basically what we’re hoping is that when we chat online we do it as if we’re in our restaurant.
