Anonymous information refers to information that cannot be traced back to an identifiable specific individual. Each time a visitor comes to the Accentus site, Accentus collects information that is necessary to improve the overall quality of the visitor's online experience and to measure traffic patterns. Accentus collects the visitor's IP address (e.g., whether the user is logged on from a .ca, .com, .gov or .edu domain), referral data (e.g., the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to our website), and browser and platform type (e.g., a Netscape browser on a Macintosh platform). Accentus also collects aggregate search terms from its search services and “usage data”, such as the number of visitors we receive or what pages are visited most often. All this data helps us to analyze and improve the usefulness of the information we provide on our web site.
Accentus collects such anonymous information with the help of cookies. A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a our site to the hard drive of your computer. This unique number identifies your browser, but not you, to the Accentus computers whenever you visit the accentus.ca site. A cookie will NOT let a web site know any identifiable information about you, such as your real name and address. The coding in the cookies Accentus sets lets us know that you are using a particular computer but nothing more. Since cookies are only text files, they cannot run on your computer, search your computer for other information or transmit any information to anyone.
Accentus has adopted and adheres to stringent security standards designed to protect non-public personal information against accidental or unauthorized access or disclosure. Among the safeguards that Accentus has developed for this site are administrative and technical barriers that together form a protective firewall around the information retrieved via this web site. /font>>/>/font>>/>
