Some of all of the products and services offered on this website may not be eligible for solicitation in your jurisdiction. If you are accessing this website from such a jurisdiction, you should not consider anything on this site as an offer to sell or as a solicitation to the public to purchase any product or service from SQL Snippets.

Unless otherwise specified, the materials contained in SQL Snippets' website are presented solely for the purpose of Education in Canada. This site is controlled and operated by SQL Snippets from its offices in Canada. SQL Snippets makes no representation that any of the materials contained in SQL Snippets' website are appropriate or available for use in other locations.

SQL Snippets appreciates and respects the privacy concerns of the visitors to its website. As a general policy, no personal information is automatically collected from customers visiting this website. However, certain information is recorded as a matter of course by SQL Snippets' servers in order to track the number of visitors to the website and to help provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor. The type of information tracked by our servers includes the browser and operating system in use by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor's Internet service. Collecting this information allows SQL Snippets to optimize the visitor's website experience. Email addresses and other personally identifiable data about visitors to this site are known to SQL Snippets only if and when voluntarily submitted by the visitor. All personal information collected by SQL Snippets is retained by SQL Snippets and not sold or otherwise provided to third parties. SQL Snippets sometimes uses email addresses and other personally identifiable information to communicate with visitors who have provided SQL Snippets with their email addresses for specific purposes such as receiving newsletters or other information. Visitors should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information on feedback sections, bulletin boards, or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other parties. SQL Snippets is not responsible for the use of such personal information by other users of the SQL Snippets website.

SQL Snippets' web pages may place a "cookie" in the browser files of a visitor's computer. The cookie itself does not contain any personal information. Although cookies enable SQL Snippets to relate a visitor's use of SQL Snippets' site to information that the visitor has specifically and knowingly provided, SQL Snippets does not do so for any sites specifically designed for and aimed at children. SQL Snippets believes that parents should supervise their children's online activities and should consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online any personal information without parental permission.
