“Phishing” is a scam that is employed to steal your personal information. If you receive an unsolicited e-mail from us asking for personal information, do not respond. We will not request your user name, password or personal financial information through e-mail
A “cookie” is a small data file transferred to your computer’s hard drive that allows a Web site to respond to you as an individual, gathering and remembering information about your preferences in order to tailor its operation to your needs, likes and dislikes. Cookies also enable an electronic retailer like Yourschoolgear.ca to keep track of a customer’s electronic “shopping bag” before completing a purchase. When your computer accepts a cookie it does not provide us with access to your computer or any personal information about you other than the information you choose to provide to us.
Most browsers will allow you to remove cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. However, if you block or turn off cookies, certain features might not be available to you and our ability to personalize your experience would be limited.
