Privacy Policy

Respecting the privacy and confidentiality of your personal information is important to viaSport. This Privacy Policy explains how viaSport collects, uses, and discloses an individual's personal information that is requested during the collection of data for the BC Sport Information website (the "Website").

Contact information is not covered by the Personal Information Protection Act.

Like many other websites, the Website may automatically collect certain non-personally identifying information regarding your use of the Website, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access the Website, the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to the Website, the operating system you are using, the sections of the Website you visit, the Website pages read and images viewed, and the content you download from the Website.

This information is not linked to you as an individual user. Rather, it is recorded as general statistical information, which is used by us in order to monitor use of the Website, to improve the Website and generally enable us to provide you with the best possible web experience. We may also archive this information for future use.

Personal Information Collected

During your use of the Website, you will be asked provide your business contact information or the business contact information for other staff, board members or coaches within the organization your Website account is registered under. If the business contact information contains personal information such as a home telephone, home address, or personal email address, it is always your choice whether or not to provide such personal information. If you choose to provide either contact information or personal information, it will be stored and processed at a secure site administered by viaSport.

We will not sell, trade, lend or otherwise voluntarily disclose contact information to any third parties for commercial use. However, contact information may be released to other members of the Website or sport and recreation organizations associated with viaSport. Any personally identifying information that you have provided to us for the purpose of contact information may be disclosed.

Purpose of Collecting Contact Information

We may use the contact information provided to correspond with individuals, respond to your inquiries, process instructions or to facilitate and enhance your use of the Website. We may send to you, from time to time, e-mail or other communications containing information about us, our activities and other matters that we believe will be of interest to you. Any personally identifying information that you have provided to us for the purpose of contact information may be used in this manner.

Securing Your Contact Information

To help protect the confidentiality of your contact and personal information, we employ security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. Nevertheless, due to the nature of the Internet and Internet technologies, security and privacy risks cannot be entirely eliminated.
