What personal data we collect and why we collect it
If visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
The Juan de Fuca Performing Arts Centre Society values your support and respects your privacy. We are using a Canadian host for our website, so that no data must leave Canada.
Petitions and Other Initiatives
We are transparent about how your data are used. For example:
- you don’t have to provide your address to electronically sign a petition, but we ask for it to identify supporters to municipal governments, and make your support more meaningful to them, and
- we need your address information in order to provide you with a Thrifty’s Smile Card.
Generally, information held by public bodies can be accessed with an access to information request. We hope that you would be proud to be identified as a supporter of arts and culture on the Westshore!
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
We will not sell information to any other entity, and will only share your information with your explicit consent. If you have any questions or concerns, please email info@jdfArtsCentre.ca.
How we protect your data
We use a Canadian host for our website, and collect a minimum of data, with informed consent. We use an American cloud platform to share administrative documents, but not membership data.
We use SSL (Secure Socket Layers) to encrypt your interaction with our website private.
As we grow, we need better tools and processes for membership management. We are working to incorporate these into our website to serve you better while protecting your data and keeping it in Canada.
What data breach procedures we have in place
If we become aware of a data breach, we will be transparent and specific about what has happened and by what mechanism.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We may use IP addresses to determine if an interaction has come from within Canada or from anther country. We may aggregate users’ or supporters’ data to effectively interact with government entities, primarily municipalities.
