Your Personal Information
Personal information is the information that relates to you, that identifies you as a DivaGirl Member or Licensee, and that allows us to provide services directly to you. We ask you for your personal information so that we can:
Your knowledge and consent is required for the collection, use, or disclosure of your personal information. We only collect, use or disclose personal information for the purposes we believe you would consider appropriate under the circumstances. When you become part of the DivaGirl community, we will use your name and email for general purposes. We believe you would also expect us to contact you to advise you of new and existing services and benefits that may be of interest to you. From time to time, we will inform you of such services and benefits via direct marketing. Direct marketing material is usually delivered to you by mail, telephone or electronic means.
- Understand your needs;
- Determine your admissibility for our products and services;
- Inform you about our products and services, that we believe may be of interest to you; or
- Invite you to participate in member surveys or other opinion gathering devices;
- Comply with the law.
Of course, you can choose not to provide us with some or all of your personal information. However, this choice may prevent us from providing you with the product, services or information that you requested or that could be offered to you. We may also combine your personal information with that of other individuals to create aggregate data which we will use to, for example, improve our products and services and develop new ones. Aggregate data is general information about groups of customers but not about you as an individual.
We only collect the information that we need in order to deliver services and benefits to you. We do not use techniques to collect information about you without your knowledge.
Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention
We do not use or disclose your personal information for any purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with your consent or as required by law.
What personal information do we collect?
Canadian privacy legislation defines personal information broadly as information about “an identifiable individual” or as information that allows an individual to be identified. The types of personal information that we may collect from you from time to time include: your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. In addition, from time to time, we may ask you to provide us with more detailed information regarding your interests, occupation, and background. For example, we sometimes ask our customers to complete surveys in order to get a better sense of who they are and what topics may be of interest to them. Finally, from time to time, we may acquire demographic and other information about you (e.g. your occupation and interests) in order to serve you better.
How do we protect your personal information?
We make every reasonable effort to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personal information under our control.Only authorized employees and suppliers have access to your personal information.DivaGirl Inc. retains your personal information only as long as necessary to fulfill the identified purpose or as otherwise required or allowed by law. When that need has ended, your personal information will be removed from our system and destroyed in a manner that ensures your security.
