In some cases, it also lets us track your activity to promote our products. While a unique code in the cookie file allows us to identify you as a user, it doesn't contain your name or address.

This information may be sent to or stored on servers in Canada or elsewhere, such as the United States. Barrage does not combine information collected by third parties with any information we have about you, but some providers may have to disclose the data they collect to a third party for legal reasons or for data processing purposes. We do not share information that would allow service providers to identify you.

Third-party service providers have their own cookies and privacy policies.
