This Digital Collection is a third-party service hosted in the U.S. or in another location outside Canada. Creation of a user account may store limited Personal Information (email address, password, library barcode and password, and the date of your last login) on a server stored outside Canada. Upon account creation, you are consenting and become subject to the privacy policy of the service provider. GVPL encourages patrons to review all third-party privacy policies and statements to protect their personal information.

Where other (third-party) organizations require personal information in order to provide services on behalf of the Library, the Library makes reasonable efforts to obtain commitments from such organizations that they treat the personal information in compliance with FIPPA and this policy. However, once information is in the hands of other organizations, it is beyond the Library’s control, and the Library cannot be accountable for the use, or further disclosure, of that information.

Peek-a-boo! Here’s a quote to brighten your day:

“When in doubt, go to the library.” – Hermione Granger
