What Personal Information About Participants Does the Website Gather?
The information we learn from Participants helps us personalize and continually improve your experience on the Website and with the Project. Here are the types of information we gather.
- Information You Give Us: We receive and store all information that you give us through our Website (including your name, email address, pictures, videos, audio recordings and the like) (“User Information”) on our secured servers. You can always control how much or how little information you want to give us.
- Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many other Websites, we use “cookies” (see below) when your web browser accesses the Website.
- E-mail Communications: We will be asking for your consent to send you email announcements, but these communications will be exclusively related to your Videos uploaded and/or your participation (e.g. subscription to the CIAD newsletter) in the Project, as applicable. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please adjust your user consent settings or unsubscribe, but please understand this will preclude you from contributing to the Project.
- Information from Other Sources: We may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
What About Cookies?
- Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as personalized information and advertisements on other websites.
Does the Website Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our Participants is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share Participant information only as described below.
- Affiliated Businesses We Do Not Control: We work closely with affiliated businesses. In particular, we are producing the project with the assistance of Bell Media Inc. (“Bell Media”). We will be sharing Participant (or that of his/her parent or legal guardian in the case of a Participant aged between 14 and 18 as of September 10, 2016 (a “Youth”)) information with Bell Media in the proper and legitimate course of producing the Project.
- Third-Party Service Providers: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include website design, website programming, delivering packages, sending postal mail, e-mail and other electronic communication, removing repetitive information from Participant lists, analyzing data, and providing information to Participants. These entities have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
- Business Transfers: In the unlikely event that CIAD sells substantially all of its assets, Participant information may be one of the transferred assets.
- With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.
How Secure Is Information About Me?
- We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
- It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
What Information Can I Access?
The Website gives you access to a limited range of information about your account and your interactions with the Website for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.
Are Youths Allowed to Use the Website?
If you are a Youth, you may use the Website only with the involvement of a parent or legal guardian. User Information from a Youth Participant includes the full name and email address of a parent or legal guardian who shall be deemed the Participant and communicated with in-place of the Youth. Children below the age of 14 as of September 10, 2016 may not submit User Information and are encouraged to engage with the Project through their parent or legal guardian.
