Canada Screens, and its parent company First Weekend Club, respects the privacy rights of our visitors and is committed to protecting the information we collect about you online. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use and disclose your personal information. Canada Screens will take reasonable steps to protect your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable laws. As we update and expand our services, this policy may change, so please refer back to it periodically.

We collect the personal information you provide us and we store and maintain that information, as well as email messages we receive from you, on our secure servers.

We will never rent, sell or share information that personally identifies you for marketing purposes without your permission.

Information Collected About You

In order to give you the best experience on our site, Canada Screens may collect various types of information about you, including personal and demographic information. Personal information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person such as a user's name, address, telephone number, or email address. Demographic information is anonymous information, which may include age/date of birth, gender, geographic area, hobbies, interests, and favorites. Demographic information is not considered personal information unless it is linked to personal information about a specific user.

We will only collect the information deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your online requests and our legitimate business objectives.

How We Use The Information We Collect

We may use and/or request personal and demographic information for any of the following purposes: to send email newsletters, for participation in online contests and sweepstakes, and email correspondence about special offers, promotional announcements and consumer surveys. In addition, Canada Screens may respond to email correspondence and communications if such correspondence includes a return email address. Because an email address is personal information, Canada Screens protects the privacy of the sender by limiting access to these email messages. For quality control purposes, email messages may be kept for a period of time. There may, however, be certain cases where hard copies may be kept on file. Information from all email messages received will not be used for marketing purposes and will be maintained in a secure location.

In addition to the uses specified above, and so we can constantly improve the products and services we provide you and to better meet your needs, we also use your personal and demographic information for our internal demographic and marketing studies, and for quality assurance.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Canada Screens does not sell or rent personal information to third parties.

Any exceptions to this policy of sharing your personal information with a partner company will be done only with your permission. Canada Screens also reserves the right to disclose information when required by law.
