Privacy Policy

Culture Days is committed to protecting your personal information. This privacy policy has been established to help you understand our commitment to protecting your personal information, and governs the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information in any communication or interaction you may have with us. By submitting your personal information and using this website, you accept this policy and consent, without qualification, to its terms as described to you at the time of collection of your personal information. If you do not agree to the terms of this policy, please do not use this website.

This policy was last updated on May 13, 2019. Culture Days reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to modify, revise, or update this policy. Please refer back to this page from time to time for such modifications, revisions, or updates.

What is personal information?

"Personal information" is personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and information that is not otherwise publicly available. Publicly available information, such as business contact information or a public directory listing of your name, address, or phone number, or information that is aggregated and not associated with a specific individual, including demographic information and statistics, is not considered personal information.

What personal information do we collect?

Culture Days will only request personal information from you that is necessary to establish and manage our relationship with you. We collect your personal information when you provide it to us, such as when you subscribe to a specific service like a newsletter, register an account on this website, participate in a contest or promotion, or contact us. We may also receive personal information from our business partners and other third parties, provided that we have obtained your consent or that these third parties confirm that they have obtained your consent.

What non-personal information do we collect?

When you visit this website, Culture Days automatically collects information such as the web browser and computer you're using, your IP address, the website you came from, and the pages you view on this website. We use this information to better understand how people use this website and to monitor trends in website traffic, but all of this information is collected and analyzed in aggregate, and none of it identifies you personally. This aggregated data may be shared with Culture Days partners or the media, and in that case these organizations will be required to comply with this policy as applicable. Culture Days sometimes uses third-party analytics tools to collect this information, including Google Analytics and Heap.

Culture Days may also store information on your computer in "cookies," which are small pieces of data that identify your browser. Cookies allow us to store information such as identifiers and user preferences, which help us tailor this website to your needs and interests. Cookies will only be stored in your browser if your browser's settings allow it. If you don't want Culture Days to use cookies, you can change your browser settings to prevent it from storing them.

How do we use the information we collect?

Other than noted below, Culture Days does not share your personal information publicly or with third parties, except with your consent or when required to by law. Culture Days also does not sell any information about our website users.

Culture Days collects and discloses your personal information for the following purposes:

  • to contact and correspond with you
  • to administer various contests, promotions, and marketing initiatives (including our newsletter)
  • to promote Culture Days initiatives

Culture Days uses a number of third-party services to enhance the functionality of this website, including MailChimp, Facebook, Twitter, Google, and Heap. Personal information that you provide to us may be with these third parties, but only to the extent required for them to operate properly. When your personal information is shared with these third parties it is covered by their respective privacy policies, which we encourage you to read.

Despite Culture Days' efforts to ensure third parties will not access or obtain your personal information through this website, complete confidentiality and security cannot be guaranteed.

Processing of personal information

Your personal information may be processed and stored outside of the province in which you reside, and/or outside of Canada. Under the laws of these other jurisdictions, in certain circumstances foreign courts, law enforcement agencies, or regulatory agencies may be entitled to access your personal information without notice to you. By submitting your personal information on this website, you agree to this transfer, storing, and processing.

Consent

By providing Culture Days with your personal information, you consent to our using your personal information for the purposes described above.
