Cookies

A “cookie” is a small piece of information that a website assign to your device while you are viewing a website. Cookies are very helpful and can be used for various purposes. These purposes include allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, enable automatic activation of certain features, remembering your preferences and making the interaction between you and our Services quicker and easier. Cookies are also used to compile statistical data on your use of our Site.

The Site uses the following types of cookies:

  1. ‘session cookies which are stored only temporarily during a browsing session in order to allow normal use of the system and are deleted from your device when the browser is closed;
  2. third party cookies which are set by other online services who run content on the page you are viewing, for example by Youtube.

Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you. You may remove the cookies by following the instructions of your device preferences; however, if you choose to disable cookies, some features of our Site may not operate as intended and your online experience may be limited.

We also use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about your use of the Site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users access the Site, what pages they visit when they do so, etc. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our Site and services. Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit sites, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this Site is restricted by the Google Analytics terms of use found here: https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/us/  and the Google Privacy Policy found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-CAN

 

Nested content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Content embedded from other sites behaves as if the visitor were visiting that other site.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, install third party tracking tools, or track your interactions with such embedded content if you have an account and are logged into their website.

Our policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent you disclose your information to other parties or sites throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. Accordingly, we encourage you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policy of each third party that you choose to disclose information to.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control, or to individuals whom we do not employ or manage, including any of the third parties which we may disclose information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

 

YouTube

Our website uses integrated content from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of these pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you visit one of our pages with YouTube embedded content, a connection to YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is then notified of the pages you have visited.

If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube under  https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-CAN

MailChimp

This website uses the services of MailChimp to send newsletters. This service is provided by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.

MailChimp is a service which organizes and analyzes the distribution of newsletters. If you provide data (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter, it will be stored on MailChimp servers in the USA.

We use MailChimp to analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file included in the email (called a web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the United States. This allows us to determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links you click on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to a specific recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to your interests.

If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by MailChimp, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send.

You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted from our servers and those of MailChimp. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected.

For details, see the MailChimp privacy policy at https://mailchimp.com/en/help/about-the-canada-anti-spam-law-casl/

 

How do we safeguard your information?

We take great care in implementing and maintaining the security of the Site and your information.  Although we take reasonable steps to safeguard information, we cannot be responsible for the acts of those who gain unauthorized access or abuse our Site, and we make no warranty, express, implied or otherwise, that we will prevent such access.

 

Marketing

We may use your Personal Information, such as your name, email address, telephone number, etc. for the purpose of providing you with information concerning our activities and services, which we believe may interest you.

Out of respect to your right to privacy we provide you within such materials with means to decline receiving further marketing emails from us. If you unsubscribe we will remove your email address or telephone number from our marketing distribution lists.

Please note that even if you have unsubscribed from receiving marketing emails from us, we may send you other types of important e-mail communications without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. These may be announcements or administrative notices about your membership to RDÉE TNL.
