Collection of Personal Information

As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal information” means personally-identifiable information such as your name, street and address, telephone number, screen name and e-mail address. Throughout our site, you may be asked for personal information so that you can register for a sweepstakes or contests, request information or mailings, fill out a survey or for a variety of other reasons. Please be assured that BankNerd.ca will not collect any Personal Information from this site unless and until you provide this information to us voluntarily. If you do not want us to have access to your Personal Information, please do not provide it while using our site.
