Privacy Policy

The Professional Editors Association of Vancouver Island (PEAVI) recognizes the privacy concerns of visitors to this Website and therefore advises visitors that the Internet is not a completely secure medium.


PEAVI does not proactively collect identifiable information from users. When you visit our Website, our web server automatically collects a limited amount of information essential for the operation and security of our Website. Some of this information (e.g., browser type) does not identify who you are, while other information, such as your Internet domain name or Internet Provider (IP) address may identify you. The extent of personal identification depends, in large part, on the “naming standards” followed by your Internet Service Provider. We may also use non-personal information to determine total number of visitors to our Website.

If you send us an email from a link you find on this Website, you consent that a member of PEAVI may reply to you. We will only use your personal information to provide you with information. We do not provide or sell email addresses to mailing lists.

Use of cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that a Website may transfer to an individual computer’s hard drive or distribute to web browsers to assist the user upon return to specific areas on the site. If you have concerns about the use of cookies from this or other sites, you can change your web browser to not accept this information or display warning messages.

How we protect and use the personal information that we collect

Collection, use, disclosure and retention of information must comply with provisions of the British Columbia Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA).

Third parties acting on PEAVI’s behalf

We will not transfer personal information to third parties, except for our business partners who have agreed to comply with legally required privacy standards (such as PIPA), and who will use the information only for the purposes disclosed at the time of collection or for a use consistent with that purpose.

We may use collected information in collective form without personal identifiers to improve our site’s services to visitors. This statistical compilation of non-identifiable information may be used by PEAVI or be provided by others for PEAVI’s purposes.
