The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you about TFP’s practices relating to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information that may be provided through access to or use of our websites, including the website located at http://www.thefeminismproject.com (collectively referred to as the “Website”) as well as the services and functionalities provided on the Website (collectively referred to as the “Services”), or that may otherwise be collected by us. By using the Services or Website, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information (as defined below) in accordance with the following terms and conditions.

This Privacy Policy also explains how you can contact us if you have a question about, want to make a change to or delete any personal information that TFP may be holding about you. We strongly recommend that you take the time to read this Privacy Policy and retain it for future reference.

Personal Information

For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual.

What Personal Information We Collect

The personal information we may collect in the course of you accessing or using the Website or the Services (including through your initial registration for an account and the subsequent administration of that account) may include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • contact information (such as name, address, postal code, e-mail address and telephone number);
  • social media profile information (such as username and other profile data);
  • demographic information (such as gender, age and occupation) and information about individual preferences; and
  • personal information, including the information you may transmit to us or authorize us to obtain from you or a third party in connection with the Services or the Website (collectively, “Customer Data”).

How We Use Your Personal Information

We use your personal information to:

  • provide you with, or make available to you, personalized Services and a personalized experience on our Website and interactive communication;
  • do all the things necessary to administer the Services and the Website;
  • research, develop, manage, protect and improve the Services and the Website; and
  • develop and maintain our relationship with you and communicate with you.

When We Disclose Your Personal Information

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or otherwise with your consent, we will not sell, license, trade or rent your personal information to or with others.

TFP may share personal information with third parties engaged to assist us in providing or making available the Services to you or to carry out one or more of the purposes described above. TFP reserves the right to disclose personal information to a third party if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so. TFP also reserves the right to disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale (including a liquidation, realization, foreclosure or repossession), lease or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of TFP or of any of the business or assets.

Knowledge and Consent

TFP collects personal information about you, from you, or from third parties you authorize us to collect such information from, only when you voluntarily provide it or authorize us to collect it. Typically, we will seek consent for the use or disclosure of your personal information at the time of collection. In certain circumstances, consent may be sought after the information has been collected but before use (for example, when we want to use information for a purpose not previously identified).

The form of consent that we seek, including whether it is express or implied, will largely depend on the sensitivity of the personal information and the reasonable expectations of the individual in the circumstances.

You may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. If you wish to withdraw your consent at any time, please contact us using the contact information provided in the “Contact Us” section of this Privacy Policy. We will inform you of the implications of withdrawing consent.

We will not, as a condition of the supply of a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of information beyond that required to fulfill the explicitly specified and legitimate purposes for which the information is being provided.

Use or Disclosure for Marketing Purposes

If you have not opted out of receiving marketing materials, we may also use (but will not disclose) your personal information to promote and market additional goods, services and special offers from us and/or our business associates, including by means of direct marketing. We may also disclose your name and mailing address to these affiliates and/or third party business associates so that they can send you promotional materials directly.

You can choose not to allow us to use or disclose your personal information for direct marketing purposes by indicating your preference by contacting us as outlined below (see “Contacting Us”).

A cookie is a small piece of information that a website can store on your web browser and later retrieve. The cookie cannot be read by any website other than the one that set up the cookies. Some browsers can be set to reject all cookies. If you choose to modify your browser in this manner, some pages of this website may not function properly / your experience on this website will not be affected.

We may also use cookies and work with third party service providers who use cookies to collect traffic data and other information about your use of our Website. We and our service providers will use this information in aggregated and anonymous form to analyze usage of our Website and to improve the operation of our Website and the Services generally.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

TFP makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that personal information collected in the course of you accessing or using the Website or the Services is protected against loss, theft and unauthorized access. This protection applies in relation to information stored in both electronic and hard copy form. Access to such personal information is restricted to selected employees or representatives.

Links to Third Party Sites

This website may offer links to other third party websites. You should be aware that operators of linked websites may also collect your personal information (including information generated through the use of cookies) when you link to their websites. TFP is not responsible for how such third parties collect, use or disclose your personal information, so it is important to familiarize yourself with their privacy policies before providing them with your personal information.

Retention and Storage of Your Personal Information

TFP retains your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws, and your consent to such purposes(s) remains valid after you leave or cease using the Website and/or Services.

For the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, we or one of our affiliates or an unaffiliated service provider may process and store your personal information outside of the province in which you reside and/or outside of Canada, and under the laws of those other jurisdictions, in certain circumstances courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other provinces or foreign jurisdictions may be entitled to access your personal information.

TFP reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at anytime without notice to reflect changes in legal or regulatory obligations or changes in the manner in which we deal with personal information. The Privacy Policy posted at any time or from time to time via this website will be deemed to be the Privacy Policy then in effect.
