Although managed by Royal Roads, the WebSpace service is hosted by a FIPPA compliant Canadian web hosting company so we can take advantage of the top tier data centers and high infrastructure reliability.  When you login to your hosted WebSpace, Royal Roads servers sync your name and email address.  The first time you login, you will be asked to consent to this data sync.  If you select the “Clear prior granting of permission for release of your information to this service” when you login successive times, you would be again asked for consent for the data sync otherwise you are only asked the first time you login.
