Types of Information Collected

981THEBRIDGE.CA may collect either “Personal Information” and/or “Non-Personal Information”. Personal Information is any information about you as an identifiable individual, such as your name, user name, address, postal code, telephone number, email address, age, date of birth, etc.  981THEBRIDGE.CA collects Personal Information only when you voluntarily provide it.

Non-Personal Information is any information that cannot be associated with an identifiable individual. This may include statistical information such as the type and version of browser being used to access the website, the length of time spent on the website, pages viewed on the website, etc.

Registration is not required in order to use or access 981TheBridge.ca and you may choose not to provide your Personal Information but this may lead to decreased functionality and will prevent us from providing you with certain products or services. However, you can still access and visit most of the features on 981THEBRIDGE.CA.

We may also request you to voluntarily provide Personal Information that is not required to access features of 981THEBRIDGE.CA when you enter a contest or other promotional activities and/or when you contact us to make requests or comments.  You may be required to register for these features, particularly if you wish to enter a contest or promotional activity.

If you register with 981THEBRIDGE.CA and/or provide us with Personal Information through contact forms, we hold that Personal Information in the strictest of confidence and it will not be shared with any third-party organization without your prior express consent.

Visitors to 981THEBRIDGE.CA can opt-in to receive communications from us. These communications will include our regular newsletter, product promotions and any other information that we feel may be pertinent to our visitors.

We only use and disclose a contest winner's name and photograph after receiving prior written consent from the winner (or their parent or guardian if the winner is under the age of majority in his or her Province of residence).

To help ensure the privacy of your information we urge you not to share your user name and password with anyone and recommend that you change your password often.

We follow the guidelines and practices as detailed in the Canadian Marketing Association’s Code of Ethics and Standards or Practice which details special considerations and guidelines in Marketing to Children.  You can read more here.

If a user is 13 years of age and under, we require the consent of a parent or guardian prior to the submission of a user's Personal Information. Personal Information from a child under the age of 13 is only collected when it is necessary for the purpose of administering a child’s participation in a contest or promotion. If a child under the age of 13 wins a prize, we will only contact the child’s parent or guardian and will not use, store or disclose the Personal Information for any other purpose.

Parents or guardians of any child can contact us at any time to get more information about our Personal Information practices or to remove a child’s Personal Information from our records.
