Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

ETEFL Online Canada (“The Company”) is committed to respecting your online privacy. We recognize the need for protection and management of information of a personal and/or identifiable nature, termed Personal Information.” This privacy policy has been developed with your safety and security at the forefront.

ETEFL Online Canada wants you to understand the extreme level of care with which we treat your Personal Information and the trust that you have placed in us when sharing your information with us.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies and personal tracking technology

Personal Information

Personal Information includes any and all information you give to us that may identify an individual. That is why on our web site, we limit our information request to only include a first name and an email address. Should you or we choose to advance our business relationship further, this privacy statement will extend to include only the information that we absolutely require, which may include a first and last name, a physical address, email address and/or other contact information that we may deem to be necessary. We make it normal course for you to visit ETEFL Online Canada’s web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself.

Some of our Web pages use “cookies,” the small text files commonly used to collect information about Web site activity. Cookies may be used to recall Personal Information previously entered by a Web user, and most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of a Web site.

Tracking technologies differ in that they may record information such as Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; and dates and times that our site is accessed. Our use of cookies and other tracking technologies allows us to improve our Web site and your Web experience. We will mostly analyze information that does not contain Personal Information for trends and statistics.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

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 tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

In the event that you elect to provide any additional Personal Information (such as by signing up as a customer or commenting on our blog), we will share that Information within ETEFL Online and our infrastructure partners (such as our email service provider and order fulfillment contractors among others). It will be our paramount goal to ensure that any and all information is protected and remains within our circle of control.

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, or have left comments, 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.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.


By using the eTEFL Online Canada Web site, you consent to the terms of our Online Privacy Policy and to eTEFL Online Canada’s processing of Personal Information for the purposes given above as well as those explained where eTEFL Online Canada collects Personal Information on the Web. Should the Online Privacy Policy change, we will take every reasonable step to ensure that these changes are brought to your attention by posting all changes prominently on our web site for a reasonable period of time.

Our promise to you

When you place your trust in eTEFL Online Canada, we take that action seriously.

We promise and commit to do everything possible to ensure the safety and security of all your data that comes into our possession.

We promise to collect only the information deemed absolutely necessary.

We promise to destroy any and all of your information upon instruction from you to do so, or when our relationship is terminated or comes to closure for any other reason, or when the information is no longer needed.

Highly sensitive information, such as any and all payment details, will not be retained.


One exception to the above is the circumstance in which we are instructed to retain information by government or a similar legal regulator. We promise that we will not share any of your information with any person or organization unless that person or organization has legally documented their needs for such action and has provided official proof of identification.
