We collect the following types of information about you.
- Postal Address
- Zip code or postal code

When you provide personally identifiable information to Rush Hour Media through one of our web sites, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. However, Rush Hour Media reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about your Rush Hour Media services. Rush Hour Media currently sends service communication e-mails through www.rushhourmedia.ca and does not send marketing e-mails or newsletters through www.rushhourmedia.ca. The service communication e-mails are essential to our registering you for service and to our continuing provision of services to you. Therefore, you may not opt out of receiving these e-mail messages. Rush Hour Media will not, however, sell, trade, or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to any person. On those Rush Hour Media sites where you may provide Rush Hour Media with credit card, electronic payment service, or other ordering information via the web Rush Hour Media protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary Web-based security and encryption protocols, an example of which is the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Rush Hour Media will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Rush Hour Media assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.
Non-Personally Identifiable (Generic) Information.
In general, Rush Hour Media gathers some generic information automatically. Generic information does not reveal the identity of the visitor. It usually includes information about the Internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors, and the Rush Hour Media sites visited. Rush Hour Media gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and Web site needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies, including “cookies” (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about Rush Hour Media services). Rush Hour Media does not combine information collected in this way with any personally identifiable information. You can set your Web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it. However, refusing some cookies may make it impossible to use or navigate the Rush Hour Media Web site properly.
