What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Usage data

Like millions of other websites, Hardware Canucks Inc. uses Google Analytics to collect usage data on our site. We use it to track:

  • What website you came from to get here
  • Which pages that you visit
  • How long you stay on our pages
  • Information about your PC type and browser
  • Using this information, we get a better understanding of our visitors and which areas of our site that we should focus on. Occasionally, we compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors that we get on our site – there is no personally identifying information being included in this type of reporting.

You can at any time opt-out of Google Analytics here.


If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Your contact information

When you contact us via our contact form we will save your e-mail address and name if applicable.
