Privacy is an important issue here at JOURNALFORLIFE.CA. It is a recorded fact that the United States NSA collects over 21 million gigabytes of information every hour.
Recent exposures by Snowdon, confirmed by others, have proven the worst fears of George Orwell. Our governments do spy on their own people without good probable cause.
In Canada recently, the government welcomed the American agencies to set up shop in Quebec City, to eavesdrop on the leaders of the G8 Summit. Many countries cross-share ambiguous information about their citizens with their allies.
Today many people believe if you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear.
At JOURNALFORLIFE.CA we are concerned that even mundane information in the wrong hands can be damaging to certain people. Therefore, we researched and selected an email service provider (FastMail) which has a stellar reputation for maintaining privacy of all information contained on their servers.
However, if you use a service provider such as gmail, or outlook.com, then you are subject to their policies when it comes to dealing with data mining and spy agencies.
We encourage you to consider all emails to be like a postcard sent through snail mail. They are open to someone to look at, if they wish to.
We require that you use only your first name and last initial when registering on our site, writing comments or forum posts, and that you leave out personal information which may identify you or where you live in your comments or posts. Should you order products from our Gift Shop, your full name, contact, and shipping information is required and will be stored on our servers.
In addition, we must advise you that any correspondence which leads an advisor to believe you have done, or intend to do, serious harm to yourself or another person, such correspondence may be forwarded to the appropriate authorities. The decision to forward or not forward such information shall be at the sole discretion of the advisor and the administrator of the JOURNALFORLIFE.CA website.
If you have any questions about our policies, or our philosophy regarding privacy, please contact us.
