Individually Identifiable Information
Our site, customculinary.ca, will not collect any individually identifiable information about you such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address unless you voluntarily provide it to us.
If you do not want your individually identifiable information collected, please do not submit it to us. If you have already submitted this information and would like to access or rectify this information, please contact us at the e-mail address listed at the bottom of this policy.
When you do provide us with individually identifiable information, we may use that information in the following ways unless stated otherwise: we may store and process it to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services; we may use it to contact you; and we may provide it to third parties (such as companies within our corporate group, third-party service providers, a third party in the course of a sale or transfer of business or other transaction, or as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law or with your consent).
We will store individually identifiable information in accordance with our retention policies or as otherwise required or permitted by law, after which your personal information will be securely destroyed or anonymized (so the information no longer identifies you).
Our site, customculinary.ca, has no intention of collecting any individually identifiable information such as name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address from individuals under the age of 13. Where appropriate, customculinary.ca will specifically instruct children not to submit such information on our web site or in response to advertisements. If a child has provided us with individually identifiable information, that child's parent or guardian should contact us at the e-mail address listed at the bottom of this policy if they would like this information deleted from our records.

In the event this information identifies you, we will treat it as detailed above in the “Individually Identifiable Information” section.
