Confidential Information and Privacy
Crystal Wind™ respects each individual’s autonomy and is committed to protecting the privacy of all users of the site. Crystal Wind™’s stance on privacy is very simple: first, Crystal Wind™ collects personal information about you only when you knowingly and willingly provide it; and second, Crystal Wind™ will not share, sell or otherwise profit from the distribution of personal data beyond the use it was provided to fulfill. As with all Crystal Wind™’s relationships either on or off the Internet, Crystal Wind™ holds its customers’ information with care and in strict confidentiality. Notwithstanding, Crystal Wind™ reserves the right at all times, without prior notification to you, to disclose any information about you or your use of this Web site as necessary to satisfy any law, regulation, governmental request or court order. Crystal Wind™ aggregates non-personal information about our customers usage behaviour from the Web site and/or surveys to better understand our customers’ needs and to improve our services overall. This aggregate information is shared with business-partners and advertisers but does not include any personally identifiable information, and does not put the confidentiality of your information at risk. Complete confidentiality and security is not yet possible over the Internet. Internet use and communication is subject to interception, loss and alteration. On whichever site you provide personal information, it is possible for a third party to view that information. It is not surprising, for example, that messages to newsgroups have resulted in unsolicited email from spammers. You acknowledge and agree that Crystal Wind™ and its affiliates and related companies shall not be responsible for any damages you may suffer as a result of the transmission of confidential or sensitive information over the Internet, and that all such communications will be at your own risk.
Web sites accessed via hypertext link or other means from this Web site have, unless otherwise indicated, been independently developed by third parties and we do not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in such sites. The inclusion of any information, material, content or links on this Web site should not be construed as an express or an implied endorsement of any third party products or services.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Crystal Wind™, its affiliates and related companies, and each of their respective directors, officers, employees, consultants and agents from and against all claims, liability, and expenses, including all legal fees and costs, arising out of: (i) your breach of these provisions; or (ii) your use of this Web site, the content contained in this Web site and the placement or transmission of any information or other materials on this Web site made by you or others using your account. You agree to promptly notify Crystal Wind™ immediately after you become aware of any unauthorized use of your account and to take such reasonable steps as are necessary to prevent any reoccurrence of such event. Crystal Wind™ reserves the right, in its sole discretion and at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you. You will co-operate as fully as reasonably required in the defence of any claim.
If you are dissatisfied with this Web site, its services or these provisions, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using this Web site. In such an event, you agree to destroy all materials obtained by you on this Web site and all copies thereof. These provisions shall survive any such termination.
Third Party Content
Crystal Wind™ is an aggregator (and not a publisher) of content available through the Internets, books and other public access sources along with information supplied by third parties and users of this Web site including, but not limited to, the images displayed. Accordingly, Crystal Wind™ has no more editorial control over such content than does a public library, bookstore, or newsstand. Any opinions, advice, statements, services, offers, images or other information or content expressed or made available by third parties, including information providers and users, are those of the respective author(s) or distributor(s) and not of Crystal Wind™. In many instances, the content available through this Web site represents the opinions and judgments of the respective information provider or user. Crystal Wind™ neither endorses nor is responsible for the accuracy or reliability of any opinion, advice or statement made on this Web site by anyone other than authorized Crystal Wind™ employee spokespersons while acting in their official capacities.
This website features an ability for both a panel of administrators and its subscribers to manage its content. Therefore the websites developer cannot be held accountable or liable for ownership of the text copy or images found within. Some of the documents contained within this website are public domain obtained from third parties. However, these cases are not always identified. Please consult our administrators prior to borrowing content wherever such permission is not explicitly stated.

Any disputes arising hereunder shall be governed exclusively by the laws of the province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein, without giving effect to their conflict of laws principles. You expressly consent to the exclusive forum, jurisdiction, and venue of the courts of Ontario and/or the Federal Court of Canada in Ontario, or any other judicial district or jurisdiction as Crystal Wind™ may determine, in any and all actions, disputes, or controversies relating hereto. These provisions and any rules, policies or guidelines posted on this Web site by Crystal Wind™ constitute the entire agreement between Crystal Wind™ and you with respect to the subject matter hereof. No waiver by either Crystal Wind™ or you of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. If any provision contained herein shall be determined to be void, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such termination shall not affect the remaining provisions contained herein. The parties have required that these provisions and all documents relating thereto be drawn up in English.
