We never share or sell any personal information. Information or data sharing is not part of our business operations, excepting information you send to retirement communities (your name and email address), which goes through our website form(s). We are not responsible for what clients do with your information once you submit information to them. If you are a user from the EU, and you have submitted this information to us in the past, we will remove it at your request. (If you would like it removed, send a request to [email protected]).

All of our email communications allow you to unsubscribe at any time.
3. Online advertising
We may use Google AdWords Remarketing to advertise Comfortlife.ca across the Internet. AdWords remarketing will display relevant ads tailored to you based on what parts of the Site you have viewed by placing a cookie on your machine. This cookie does not in anyway identify you or give anyone access to your computer. The cookie is used to say "This person visited this page, so show them ads relating to that page." Google AdWords Remarketing allows us to tailor our marketing to better suit your needs and only display ads that are relevant to you. Read more about our cookies policy below.

This is intended only to provide generalized, relevant information for our clients, and is provided by users with their consent. If you submit information, you can have it removed by submitting a request to Comfort Life at [email protected].
6. Information Use and Disclosure

When Comfort Life sends you emails, we may use tracking, cookies or a web beacon or these may be part of third party software we employ in bulk emailing. These only allow us to determine the number of people who open our emails and where traffic moves within our site. When you click on a link in an email, we may record this single response.
All of these identifiers collect very limited information that helps us with our marketing initiatives and is likely to include no more than the time and date of a page being viewed and the name and location (url) of the page on which the Web Beacon resides.
If you are concerned about this, you can disable identifiers by disabling HTML images or refusing HTML (use Text only) emails via your email software.
While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. 100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline. If you have submitted data that is controlled by Comfort Life and Our Kids Media, be assured that we take reasonable measures to comply with GDPR stipulations concerning the reporting of data breaches, especially those concerning submitted personal information.
Upon your request, we will (a) correct or update your personal information and/or (b) stop sending emails to your email address.
