Privacy Policy

PlayMagazine.ca

"PlayMagazine.ca” and “Click Magazine Inc.” (trading names of Bottle Top Media Ltd) take the issue of data privacy very seriously and we are committed to protecting and respecting our users' privacy. We ask that you take a few minutes to read the following policy so you understand how we use the personal information we ask you to submit on the ‘website’ (PlayMagazine.ca) or any applications provided by PlayMagazine.ca on third-party websites such as Facebook.com, mobile or device applications. If you have any queries or concerns regarding these practices, you should contact us. As we update and expand our services, this policy may change, so please refer back to it periodically.

For the purposes of UK's Data Protection Act 1998, Bottle Top Media, a company registered in the UK under company registration number 606194 and having its registered office at Scottish Provident Building, Donegall Sq West, Belfast, North Ireland, is the data controller in relation to the personal data you disclose to us.

By accessing our Web site or using our services, you consent to our information practices as set out as follows:

This Privacy Policy is deemed to be incorporated into the Website Terms and Conditions, which you should read together with this Privacy Policy. Capitalised words used but not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given to them in the Terms and Conditions.

Collection and use of information
Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you, specifically your name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number, as well as other information when such information is combined with your personal information.

When you register at our website, we ask you to supply us with such personal information so that we can provide, enhance and personalize our services and marketing efforts. We use this personal information to process your registration and to communicate with you on a range of topics. We also use your e-mail address to send you newsletters, as well as messages about special offers, promotional announcements and consumer surveys. If you no longer want to receive our newsletters, or other promotional emails, simply unselect the relevant option under your profile or alternatively click the unsubscribe option at the bottom of the newsletter or offer email.

While using the website, you will have opportunities to post reviews and comments or other personal information in public forums. Please understand that when you post such information, it is made public and is not subject to this policy. You must certify that you are at least 13 years old. Any personal information which you volunteer in your public profile or which you post as a message will be available worldwide to anyone with access to the website. Please do not post any information with which you are not happy to leave up indefinitely. As with all public websites we recommend you do not post your name, address, telephone number, email address or anything else that may lead someone to identify you if this is something you are uncomfortable with.

We also use outside providers for web-site statistics. Please note that to provide statistics these use visitors’ IP addresses but do not have access to users’ usernames or email addresses. The primary provider we use is Google Analytics. For further information on Google analytics please see http://www.google.com/analytics/.

Cookies and Other Technology
As you browse the website, cookies are placed on your computer's hard drive. (Cookies are small pieces of data that are sent to your browser from a Web server and stored on your hard drive.) In general, cookies can make the Web more useful by storing information about your preferences on a particular site. Cookies in and of themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user's computer.

In addition to cookies, we may use other technologies, including pixel tags, to gather information on how our users interact with our site and to otherwise help us efficiently operate and monitor our site. These technologies show us, for example, popular pages, and other information that can be used to improve, operate and monitor our site. Third parties, including consultants we engage and online advertisers, may also use this technology to perform similar services for us as well as to assess their own advertising or services.

More detailed information on cookies can generally be found in the "help" (or similar) section of your Internet web browser.

Links to other websites
The website may occasionally contain links to sites operated by third parties whose policies regarding the handling of personal information may differ from ours. While we endeavour to associate with reputable sites, we cannot be responsible for the information handling practices of these other sites and we recommend that you read the privacy policy of such third party sites prior to giving over any information.

Information sharing and Disclosure
PlayMagazine.ca is committed to protecting your personal information. We will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent except:
  • a). Where we are required by law to disclose information to third parties;
  • b). Where the disclosure is necessary for the performance of our operations (e.g. hosting services, protecting us from fraud); or
  • c). In connection with a corporate transaction, such as a sale, merger, consolidation or asset sale, or an internal reorganisation, or in the unlikely event of an insolvency. If such a transaction or event required the transfer of customer information, then that information would be one of the transferred assets, but would remain subject to the commitments made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy or equivalent.

We also may share your personal information with third parties (i.e. agents or sub-contractors) specifically engaged by PlayMagazine.ca to provide services to us, in which case we will require those parties to keep that information confidential and secure and to use it solely for the purpose of providing the specified services to us.

Security
Your PlayMagazine.ca account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. You can play an important role in keeping your personal information secure by maintaining the confidentiality of your password used on the website.

Users of public or shared computers or unprotected mobile devices should log out at the completion of each visit to the website. We recommend that you change your password from time to time for additional security. Please advise us immediately if there is any unauthorised use of your account by any other Internet user or any other breach of security.

Backups are run to prevent loss of information, and our Internet servers are housed in secure facilities with firewall protection.

While we make every effort to ensure that your information is secure on our system, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk

Changes to This Policy
As we update and expand our services, we may make changes to this policy. You should check back for updates to this policy from time to time. If the changes result in materially less protection for your personal information than that provided in this policy, we will make reasonable efforts to contact you and obtain your consent to the changes. Like our Terms of Use, of which this policy is a part, your use of the website after our efforts to contact you means that you agree to be bound by such changes.
