Any personal contact information that I (Grayden Laing) collect (email addresses, phone numbers, etc.) from any emails I receive will never be shared with any third parties. The contact information I collect will be used to contact artists, animation industry individuals, or people connected to the animation industry for the purposes of creating "Artist of the Day" posts for the Canadian Animation website or for writing articles or conducting interviews for the Canadian Animation Blog website.

The artist information shared by this site (Canadian Animation) will be in the form of answers provided by artists who are participating in an “Artist of the Day” post featuring their work. The “Artist of the Day” posts will feature an Amazon Link in relation to an artist’s “Favourite (Animation) Book”, which will be connected to the Amazon Associates account connected with Canadian Animation. If a book is purchased when a viewer clicks on the Amazon Link I will receive a small commission on the purchase from Amazon. If any artist would prefer to not have the book they recommended linked to an Amazon site where the book can be purchased - they can send an email requesting that the link either not be included or request that it be removed.

I use Google Analytics to see how folks find and use this website. This allows me to optimize this site to be ranked higher for key search terms in Google organic search results. This information also allows me to feature content that I know the majority of my viewers will be interested in. If you would like to opt-out of Google Analytics you can visit this opt-out link to add that feature to your browser, which will stop Google from showing me how you found this site and what pages you visited.

If you have any other questions feel to email me at I would like to mention however, that because I work as a freelance cinematographer and occasionally shoot in remote locations email requests may take some time to process if I have limited or no access to email at the time of the request.
