Our Commitment to Privacy

SPINCO IP Holdings Inc. (“SPINCO” “we”, “us” and “our”) values and is committed to protecting your privacy by ensuring that your Personal Information (defined below) is treated with care and is not used or disclosed in ways to which you have not consented. 

This privacy policy (“Policy”) explains the ways in which we collect, use and disclose your Personal Information.  It applies to any Personal Information that is collected by us, whether it is collected over the telephone, in writing, or electronically.

By visiting and/or using the SPINCO website located at www.spinco.ca/ (the “Site”), booking or purchasing SPINCO classes, purchasing merchandise, communicating with SPINCO, using and attending SPINCO studios (“Studio(s)”), and/or utilizing any other services we provide in connection with the above (collectively, the “Services”), you agree that your Personal Information will be handled as described in this Policy as well as any other terms that are described to you when your Personal Information is collected.  If you do not agree with this Policy or such other terms, please do not use the Site or our Services or otherwise provide your Personal Information to us.

When you visit our Site or communicate with SPINCO via email, you are communicating electronically. You will receive communications from SPINCO electronically in accordance with the consent that you provide to us. SPINCO will communicate with you by email or by posting notifications on our Site. You understand and agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that SPINCO provides electronically, satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

SPINCO will never disclose, sell or lease to any third party any Personal Information that you provide to us, without your permission, other than as described in this Policy, or unless we are required to do so by law. Notwithstanding this, this Site is hosted and administered by a third party. Accordingly, the Personal Information provided through this Site will be available to that third party for the limited purposes of hosting and administering this Site.

It is SPINCO’s policy to comply with the privacy legislation within each jurisdiction in which we operate. Sometimes the privacy legislation and/or an individual’s right to privacy are different from one jurisdiction to another. This Policy covers only those activities that are subject to the provisions of Canada’s federal and provincial privacy laws, as applicable. 

We may modify, revise or update this Policy at any time by updating this posting. Each time you use the Site, the version of this Policy then posted will apply to that use, so you should check this page each time you use the Site.

We do not collect more Personal Information than we require for the purposes for which Personal Information is being collected, unless we are required or permitted by law to collect additional information.

We will notify the individual from whom the information is collected of the purposes for which we are collecting the information.  This notice will be provided at or before the time that we collect the Personal Information.  Depending on the way in which Personal Information is collected, this may be done orally or in writing.

When Personal Information that has been collected is to be used for a purpose that we have not previously identified, we will communicate the new purpose prior to using the information for the new purpose, unless the new purpose is required or permitted by law.

Other than as required or allowed by law (for example, in response to a court order or subpoena, or to comply with local or federal regulations), your Personal Information will not be used for any other purpose without your consent.

Disclosure of Your Personal Information

Your Personal Information will never be sold, exchanged, transferred or shared with another company other than as set out in this Policy without your consent.

We may disclose the information we collect from you to our affiliates or subsidiaries; however, if we do so, their use and disclosure of your Personally Information will be subject to this Policy.

We may disclose the information we collect from you to third party service providers, contractors or agents who perform functions on our behalf. 

We may share your Personal Information if we are acquired by or merged with another company, if some or all of our assets are transferred to another company, or as part of a bankruptcy proceeding, we may transfer the information we have collected from you to the other company.

We may disclose the information we collect from you in order to comply with the law, a judicial proceeding, court order, or other legal process, such as in response to a court order or a subpoena.

We also may disclose the information we collect from you where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person, violations of our Terms and Conditions or this  Policy, or as evidence in litigation in which we are involved.

Security, Retention and Disposal of Personal Information

We implement security safeguards to protect Personal Information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification, regardless of the format in which the information is held.  We use physical, organizational and technological measures to protect Personal Information, such as locked filing cabinets, firewalls, encryption, and employee education.

We will keep Personal Information only for as long as it remains necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law.  We use secure means of disposing of Personal Information.

You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your username and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

Processing of Personal Information

Your Personal Information may be stored on servers located outside of Canada, including in the U.S., and as a result may be accessible without notice to you by the courts, law enforcement and national security authorities of that jurisdiction.
