We hope you enjoy the Cabot Trail Companion and its fascinating selection of Cape Breton tales. Although great care has gone into the making of both the Cabot Trail Companion and this website, the information they contain is subject to change, and no warranty can be made regarding its accuracy. The Publisher, Author and Contributors shall not be held liable for any damage, loss or inconvenience caused through the use of the Cabot Trail Companion or cabotguides.com. Due care and attention must be paid to road safety at all times. Do not use the Cabot Trail Companion if road or weather conditions are hazardous. Do not read printed material whilst driving. By using the Cabot Trail Companion or the website www.cabotguides.com, you confirm that you will not hold their Publisher or Contributors liable for any damage, loss, injury or inconvenience that may result from their use.

Please refer to the current edition of the Nova Scotia Doers and Dreamers guide or visit www.cabottrail.travel before making important arrangements.

Map distances printed in the Cabot Trail Companion audio guide are approximate and rounded to the nearest half-kilometre; geographical features may be simplified, omitted or not to scale. Visitors wishing to hike or explore in depth should pick up an official Cabot Trail map (at Visitor Information Centres) and the Cape Breton Highlands National Park map (at Parks Canada stations).

The business directory that appears in the Cabot Trail Companion and on www.cabotguides.com is not exhaustive: please email info@cabotguides.com if you would like to be included in future editions.

Cabot Travel Guides does not collect private information about its customers except for certain essential transaction details, limited to: the order reference number; the name, quantity and cost of items ordered; the customer's telephone number, email address, and home/shipping addresses. As a due-diligence (anti-fraud) precaution, we also receive the IP number/location of the computer used to make the order.

The only time we use order-history and customer-contact information is when completing a transaction or addressing a customer-service concern. Cabot Travel Guides does not share the information we receive from you with any other organization or individual, and you will not be contacted about other products or services.

No confidential information is collected or stored by Cabot Travel Guides: all sensitive data regarding credit-card transactions is protected by 2CO (also referred to as 2CO.com, 2Checkout, 2checkout.com and 2Checkout.com), an authorized retailer of Cabot Travel Guides.

Cabot Travel Guides measures the effectiveness of its online advertising campaign with a tool developed by Google that counts AdWords conversions. A 'conversion' occurs when a click on a Google AdWord leads directly to a purchase. It works by placing a cookie on the user's computer when he or she clicks on our AdWords ad. Then, if the user reaches a sales confirmation page, the cookie is matched to the www.cabotguides.com web page and Google records the successful transaction. Google's cookie expires in around 30 days and conversion tracking and search results use separate servers, protecting the user's privacy.

Any unopened item may be returned within 15 days of receipt for a full refund (return to the Cabot Travel Guides address at the foot of this page). Upon our receipt of the returned item 2CO will credit the original payment method (Visa, MasterCard etc). Return shipping is currently at the customer's expense.

If you have received a defective or incorrect order, or if your order fails to arrive within 45 days, please contact us to arrange a replacement.
