Privacy Policy

Privacy Document

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how your personal information is processed and explains data collection and use practices for the DynamicBilliard.ca network. DynamicBilliard.ca network includes all Web pages, newsletters, discussion forums and lists and opt-in announcement lists owned and operated by Dynamic Billiard Ltd. and each of its wholly-owned subsidiaries as linked directly or indirectly from the DynamicBilliard.ca (collectively the "Site") home page (collectively hereafter "DynamicBilliard.ca”). By accessing DynamicBilliard.ca website and network you are consenting to the information collection and use practices described in this Privacy Policy. We promise that we will use your personal information only in ways that are compatible with this Privacy Policy as follows:

Personal Information

When you register for certain services on the Sites, we will ask you to provide personal information. For some services we collect personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. We may also collect demographic information, such as your postal code, ZIP code, age, gender, and preferences. Information we collect may be combined with information we obtained through other services we offer

Do you collect IP addresses?

Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as a computer's "Internet Protocol" (IP) address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the DynamicBilliard.ca network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our Sites. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the DynamicBilliard.ca network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. We may collect information about your visit to the Sites, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with the Sites and services. We may also collect certain standard information that your browser sends to every web site you visit, such as browser type and language, access times and referring Web site addresses. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

What are cookies?

From time to time, the DynamicBilliard.ca network or its advertisers may send a "cookie" to your computer. A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent to your Internet browser from a Web server and stored on your computer's hard drive. A cookie can't read data off of your computer hard disk or read cookie files created by other Web sites. Cookies do not damage your system. We use cookies to identify which areas of DynamicBilliard.ca network you have visited or customized, so the next time you visit those pages may be readily accessible. Our advertisers may also use cookies to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. Our advertisers and we may use this information to better personalize the content, banners, and promotions that you see on our Site. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings of your Internet browser. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies, or allow your browser to show you when a cookie is being sent. If you choose not to accept these cookies, your experience at our Site and other Web sites may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

What personal information do you collect?

Wherever the DynamicBilliard.ca network collects personal information we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy. We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. The personal information we collect may include your name, title, company or organization name, e-mail address, phone number, work or home address, information about your job function, information about your company, and credit card information.

We may request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a contest or to provide additional services (for example, new advertising specials, new listings, properties just sold, subscriptions to announcement lists or information about conferences and products). Participation in contests or other promotions on the DynamicBilliard.ca Network is completely voluntary and you have a choice whether or not to disclose personal information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code). This information may be used to offer products and services.

If you are purchasing our standard listing service or advertising services, any third party provider, and we, need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number and expiration date. This allows us, or third party providers, to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. Credit card and e-mail information will not be shared or sold to third parties for any purpose except as provided in this Privacy Policy without your express permission.

The DynamicBilliard.ca network also offers access to some services that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification to you of products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We may also use your IP address internally and share it with third parties. You may stop the arrival of announcements and newsletters at any time by removing your e-mail address from the list by forwarding the request to service@dynamicbilliard.ca or by following the instructions on the e-mails you receive.

When you use co-branded services, or those provided by a third party, within the DynamicBilliard.ca Network, your information may be passed to the co-brand or third party provider and their use of your information is subject to their applicable privacy policies.

We may from time to time send e-mail announcing new products and services. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive postal mailings from DynamicBilliard.ca or third party companies.

Transaction Processing

We will disclose personal information to one or more third parties, as necessary, to provide you with the services. As stated above, your personal information is forwarded to one or more third party service providers in order to provide you with the services. If a particular service provider is unable to fulfill your request within a reasonable time, we may forward your information to an alternate service provider to ensure that your request is fulfilled. Service providers may contact you to complete the transactions you have requested by any methods available to him or her including via e-mail, telephone, regular mail, in person visits or other means.

We do not regulate how these third party service providers use or disclose your personal information and are not responsible for removing your information from any third party lists. Please contact the third party service providers directly to be removed from their lists.

Protection of Dynamic Billiard Ltd. and Others:

We disclose personal information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply this privacy statement or our other policies or agreements; to initiate, render, bill, and collect for amounts owed to us; to protect our or our users' rights, property or safety; or to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our Sites; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.

LINKS

Please be aware that we may provide links to third party Web sites from our Sites as a service to our users and we are not responsible for the content or information collection practices of those sites. We have no ability to control the privacy and data collection practices of such sites and the privacy policies of such sites may differ from that of the DynamicBilliard.ca network. Therefore, we encourage you to review and understand the privacy policies of such sites before providing them with any information.

COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS

We may use cookies to identify users and customize their experience on our site based on information they give us. Cookies are small pieces of information or files that are stored on a user's computer by the Web server through a user's browser for record keeping purposes. A cookie itself is not designed or intended to read any information from your computer (other than the contents of the cookie); rather, it is an identifier used by the Web site that originally placed it on your hard drive. The actual contents of the cookie information can be retrieved by the same site's Web server in order to personalize, monitor, or regulate the use of the site. We do not use Web beacons, or similar technology on our Sites. However, we permit third parties to place Web beacons on our Sites to monitor the effectiveness of advertising and for other lawful purposes. A Web beacon, also known as a "Web bug," is a small, graphic image on a Web page, Web-based document or in an e-mail message that is designed to allow the site owner or a third party to monitor who is visiting a site. Web beacons collect non-personally identifying information such as the IP address of the computer that the Web beacon is sent to, the URL of the page the Web beacon comes from and the time it was viewed. We do not use (or permit third parties to use) Web beacons to collect personally identifying information about you.

SECURITY

We use reasonable security measures to store and maintain personally identifying information to protect it from loss, misuse, alternation or destruction by any unauthorized party while it is under our control.

Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?

DynamicBilliard.ca will disclose personal information and/or an IP address:

  1. To contact you regarding other products and services which may be of interest to you (including those we may offer jointly with other companies). At any time, however, you may opt out of such contact;
  2. When required by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to:
    1. Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the DynamicBilliard.ca network;
    2. Protect and defend the rights or property of the DynamicBilliard.ca Network of sites and related properties, or visitors to the DynamicBilliard.ca Network of sites and related properties;
    3. Identify persons who may be violating the law, the DynamicBilliard.ca Web site User Agreement, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the DynamicBilliard.ca Network or its related properties;
    4. Fulfill a user's order or request;
  3. To process and fulfill your order or notify you of order status;
  4. When we have your consent to share the information;
  5. When you use co-branded services within our network of sites, you grant us permission to pass your registration information back to that service partner. Their use of your information is subject to their applicable privacy policies.

We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy that means that we do not sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party, without your consent or as permitted by this Privacy Policy.

What else should I know about my privacy when online?

The DynamicBilliard.ca Network contains many hyperlinks to third party Web sites. The DynamicBilliard.ca Network also contains advertisements of third parties. DynamicBilliard.ca is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such third party Web sites or advertisers. The DynamicBilliard.ca network does not share any of the individual personal information you provide DynamicBilliard.ca with the third parties to which DynamicBilliard.ca links, except as stated elsewhere within this Privacy Policy, although DynamicBilliard.ca may share general, aggregate data with such third parties (such as how many people use our Site). Please check with those Web sites to determine their privacy policy. If you use DynamicBilliard.ca discussion threads, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these discussion threads. In order to avoid your e-mail address or other personal information from being gathered and used by others for inappropriate or harmful purposes, DynamicBilliard.ca advises that you should be cautious about posting a real e-mail address or other personal information to newsgroups, chats, or other public forums. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example through e-mail, discussion lists, or elsewhere - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Certain DynamicBilliard.ca media properties use a shopping cart feature that safeguards this information by using industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypted servers. SSL codes the information transferred between you and the server, rendering it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept the information. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your personal information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.

Business transfers

We are always seeking to improve our network of Web sites and our business. In accomplishing these objectives, we may sell a company, assets or websites or one or more of the companies in our corporate family may merge with, or be acquired by, another company. In connection with the foregoing, we may transfer some or all of your information in order that the service being provided to you may continue or for other business purposes. In addition, information about users of our Sites, including personally identifiable information provided to us by our users, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personally identifiable information could be transferred to third parties as one of the business assets of the company.

Your Consent To This Agreement

By using the DynamicBilliard.ca Network, you consent to the collection and use of information by DynamicBilliard.ca as specified above. We reserve the right to modify this Policy. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.

USE OF THIRD PARTY AD NETWORKS

We may allow other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to display advertisements on the Sites. Some of these ad networks may place a persistent cookie on your computer in order to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. We do not have access to the cookies that may be placed by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.

CHILDREN

We do not intend, and these Sites are not designed, to collect personal information from children under the age of 18. If you are under 18 years old, you should not register for our services or otherwise provide information on our Sites.
