Your use of the Website and/or any Content does not grant or transfer to you any ownership or other rights in the Website and/or any Content, and except as expressly provided, nothing herein or within the Website and/or any Content shall be construed as conferring on you or any other person or entity any license under any CSTGA or third party intellectual property or other rights. Any rights not expressly granted to you in these Terms are expressly reserved.

All remarks, suggestions, ideas, graphics, or other information communicated to CSTGA through a Site (collectively, “Submissions”) will forever be the property of CSTGA, unless otherwise agreed by CSTGA in writing. CSTGA will not be required to treat any Submission as confidential, and will not be liable for any ideas for its business (including without limitation, product or advertising ideas) and will not incur any liability as a result of any similarities that may appear in future products or operations of CSTGA. Without limitation, CSTGA will have exclusive ownership of all present and future existing rights to the Submission of every kind and nature everywhere. CSTGA will be entitled to use the Submission for any commercial or other purpose whatsoever, without compensation to you or any other person sending the Submission.

CSTGA respects the privacy of everyone who visits a Website. As a result, we would like to inform you regarding the way we would use your personal information. We recommend you to read this privacy statement so that you understand our approach towards the use of your personal information.
By submitting your personal information to CSTGA, you will be treated as having given your permission – where necessary and appropriate – for disclosures referred to in this privacy statement. Under no circumstances will CSTGA sell, distribute, or otherwise disclose personal information or contact lists to third parties. However, limited disclosure may be required as part of CSTGA fulfilling its stated business duties and day-to-day operations. This may include consultants, suppliers, or business partners of CSTGA, but only with the understanding that these parties obey and abide by this privacy statement, to the extent necessary to fulfil their own business duties and day-to-day operations.
Please be assured that we will not use your personal information for any purposes if you have indicated in writing that you do not wish us to use your information in this way when submitting the information or at a later stage.
Collection of Non-Personal Information
We may automatically collect non-personal information about you such as the type of internet browsers you use or the website from which you linked to a Website. We may also aggregate details that you have submitted to a Website (for example, your age and location). You cannot be identified from this information and it is only used to assist us in providing an effective service through the Website. We may from time to time supply third parties with this non-personal or aggregated information for uses in connection with the Website.
We have implemented technology and policies with the objective of protecting your privacy from unauthorized access and improper use and will update these measures as new technology becomes available, as reasonable and appropriate.
Security and confidentiality
The transmission of data or information over the internet or other forms of networks may not be secure, and is subject to possible loss, interception or alteration while in transit. CSTGA cannot guarantee security of any communication to or from the Website. CSTGA does not assume any liability for any damage you may experience or costs you may incur as a result of any electronic transmissions over the internet, other forms of networks or otherwise while using the Website. In no event will any information you provide on or through the Website be deemed to be confidential, create any fiduciary obligations to you on our part, or result in any liability to you on our part.
Any passwords and user ID’s used for a Website are for individual business use only. You will be responsible for the security of your password and user ID (if any). CSTGA will be entitled to monitor your password and user ID and, at its discretion, require you to change it. If you use a password that CSTGA considers insecure, CSTGA will be entitled to require the password to be changed and/or terminate your account. You further agree not to disclose your password or user ID to any other person and CSTGA will not be responsible for the unauthorized use of your profile by any other person and are under no obligation to confirm the actual identity of any password or user ID. You agree to notify CSTGA immediately upon becoming aware of any known or suspected unauthorized use(s) of the your password or user ID to gain access to your profile, or any breach of security, or if at any time your password or user ID is, or you believe it has been, lost, stolen, disclosed, or otherwise compromised. CSTGA cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these provisions.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
Subject to applicable law, by accessing or using a Website, you agree that all matters relating to your access to, or use of, such Website and its Content shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada, without regard to conflict of laws principles, and you agree and hereby submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario with respect to all matters relating to your access to and use of such Website.
CSTGA may, in its sole discretion, cancel or terminate your right to use any or all Websites, or any part of any Website, or any Content, at any time without notice. In the event of termination, you are no longer authorized to access the applicable Website, the part of the Website, or Content affected by such cancellation or termination. The restrictions imposed on you with respect to both Content and the Website set out in these Terms shall survive. CSTGA shall not be liable to any party for such termination.
If any term or provision of these Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, it shall be severed and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force without being invalidated in any way. You may not assign, convey, subcontract or delegate your rights, duties or obligations hereunder. CSTGA will not be considered to have waived any of its rights or remedies described in these Terms unless the waiver is in writing and signed by CSTGA. No delay or omission by CSTGA in exercising its rights or remedies will impair or be construed as a waiver. Any single or partial exercise of a right or remedy will not preclude further exercise of any other right or remedy. The failure of CSTGA to enforce the strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of the right of CSTGA to subsequently enforce such provision or any other provisions of these Terms. The headings used in these Terms are included for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Except for any agreement in respect of Content, this is the entire agreement between you and CSTGA relating to your access and use of any Website and the Content herein.
