Visitors can browse at their will on the site by blocking the cookies, however, the only drawback will be that not all access to every section of the site will be available.

Some of our business partners may also use cookies from our site (for example, advertisers); we have no control over these cookies.

Log Files

We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track visitor's movement and gather socio-economic data for general use. IP addresses cannot identify an individual and are used solely for site management.

Information Sharing

We share certain socio-economic data with our partners and advertisers. This information cannot identify an individual.


This website contains links to other sites. Please note that the Breakfast Club of Canada is not responsible for the privacy practices of these sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy policies of all sites that collect personal information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by our website.

Surveys and Contests

Occasionally, our site collects information about users via surveys or contests. The user is entirely free to participate in these surveys or contests, and therefore has a choice whether to disclose its information. Information requested may include name, address, postal code and age group. The name and address of the user are used to notify the winners and distribute prizes. The information obtained by surveys is used to evaluate and improve the use and satisfaction of visitors from this site. If these surveys or contests are managed by a third party, the information you provide will be transferred to the third party.

Security and SSL

This website takes every precaution to protect information. When the user provides confidential information through this site, the information is protected both on and off the website.

In order to protect confidential information (such as credit card numbers), our registration forms use the best encryption software in the industry: SSL; the security icon that appears at the bottom of browsers. To learn more about SSL, follow this link: www.verisign.com.

At the same time we use SSL to protect personal information online, we also make every effort to protect such information outside of our website. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive/primary information mentioned above, is kept in our offices. Only employees who need to know personal information to perform a specific task (a billing clerk or customer service for example) are granted access to personal information that could identify users.
