The Contest Administrators and Our affiliates are committed to protecting the online privacy of visitors to Our website. The policy set forth below (this “Policy”) applies only to the www.thereelchallenge.ca website and administration of The Reel Challenge Contest. The purpose of this Policy is to inform You about the types of information we gather about You when you visit Our website, how we may use that information, and how we disclose it to third parties.
1. INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT
At various locations on Our website, such as in registration forms, surveys, and polls, We may request that You supply us with “personal information,” such as Your name, email address, mailing address, home or work telephone number. You will hopefully know when We are collecting personal information, because We attempt to collect personal information only when You voluntarily submit it to us through our online forms and questionnaires. Although You do not have to provide us with any information to visit Our website, You may not be able to fully utilize all of the services on Our website if You choose not to provide certain information. If You do choose to give us personal information through Our website, We will collect and retain that information.
When You use our website, we may also collect “non-personal information.” We consider “non-personal information” to be information that, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you personally, such as demographic information (your age, gender, income, education, profession, postal code, etc.). Non-personal information may also include technical information, such as Your IP address, the type of browser You are using, the websites You visit immediately before and immediately after You visit Our website, and other anonymous or anonymized data involving Your use of our website. Non-personal information may also include information that You provide Us through Your use of Our website, such as the terms You enter into the search functions of Our website. We reserve the right to use or disclose non-personal information in any way We see fit.
You do have control over cookies. Most browsers can be set to notify You when a cookie is being placed on Your computer. Most browsers can also be set to refuse to accept cookies, although this may affect Your Internet experience. You can also erase cookies that are already on your computer. For more information about working with cookies, you should consult your user manual, FAQ, or “help” function of your specific browser and operating system software.
2. USE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Our Services and Website
We use Your personal information to provide You any services that You may request or require, to communicate with You and to allow you to participate in The Reel Challenge Contest. We use aggregated non-personal information about Our users to understand our website’s demographics, such as the percentage of male and female users, the geographic distribution of our users, the age ranges of our users, a combination of these or other demographics. We may also use the personal or non-personal information We collect to analyze how Our website is being used, and to improve the content of Our website..
If You send us an email with questions or comments, We will use your personal information to respond to Your questions or comments, and We may save your questions or comments for future reference. However, aside from our reply to such an email, it is not Our standard practice to send You email unless you request a particular service that involves email communications or You otherwise consent to being contacted by email
3. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
Except as specifically set forth in this Policy, We do not share Your personal information with any non-affiliated third party without your permission. We may disclose aggregate information, such as demographic information, and our statistical analyses to third parties, including advertisers or other business partners. This aggregate information has been anonymized and does not include Your personal information.
We sometimes engage unaffiliated businesses to assist us in providing you certain services. For example, We may use third parties to facilitate our online services. In those instances, We may need to share Your personal information with them. We require these companies to use Your personal information only to provide the particular product or service and do not authorize them to use Your personal information for any other reason.
We may disclose personal information when we are required or requested to do so by law, court order or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency; to enforce or apply Our rights and agreements; or when We believe in good faith that disclosing this information is necessary or advisable, including, for example, to protect the rights, property, or safety of our users, or others.
Our website is not designed for use by children without their parent’s supervision. We ask that anyone under the age of eighteen not submit any personal information through our website. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children, and therefore we do not knowingly distribute such information to third parties.
6. SECURITY OF THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The security of Your personal information is important to Us. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to secure Your personal information. However, there is always some risk in transmitting information electronically. The personal information We collect is stored within databases that We or our affiliates control. As We deem appropriate, We use security measures consistent with industry standards, such as firewalls and encryption technology, to protect Your information. However, We cannot guarantee the security of Our databases, nor can We guarantee that information You supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to Us over the Internet.
7.Â How can I update my Profile?
You can help Us maintain the accuracy of Your profile by notifying Us when You change postal code, country of residence, age range, or e-mail address..
