At Seaway Mall we are committed to protecting your privacy, and support a general policy of openness about how we collect, use and disclose your personal information.
The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to inform you about Seaway Mall's practices relating to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information that may be provided through access to or use of our website or services and related products or that may otherwise be collected by us. By entering our Mall and purchasing our products, or using our services or website, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information (as defined below) in accordance with the following terms and conditions.
This Privacy Statement also explains how you can contact us if you have a question about, want to make a change to or delete any personal information that Seaway Mall may be holding about you. We strongly recommend that you take the time to read this Privacy Statement and retain it for future reference.
For the purpose of this Privacy Statement, "personal information" means information about an identifiable individual.
What Personal Information We Collect The personal information collected by Seaway Mall may include at least some of the following:
Contact information (such as name, address, e-mail address and telephone number in a non-business capacity) if you enter contests or take part in a promotional event that we organize, contribute event listings, or provide comments or questions to us either at our Customer Service desk or online regarding customer service; Financial and billing information (such as credit card number/expiration date) when you purchase gift certificates at our Customer Service desk; and Additional information regarding your employment and employment history, should you choose to post your resume through Seaway Mall's website or respond to job postings on our website.
We have a "Mall Cam" that captures images from our Centre Court and broadcasts them via streaming live video, which refreshes every two seconds, on our website. The Mall Cam captures promotional events that take place in Centre Court, as well as daily pedestrian traffic in this area, and we use this streaming video for two main purposes:
To allow us to establish and maintain commercial relationships with customers by creating interest in Seaway Mall and our events; and To promote Seaway Mall to both residents of and visitors to the Niagara region.
The Mall Cam uses low resolution imaging technology; this gives you an idea of what's happening in our Centre Court area of the Mall at any given moment while maintaining the privacy of individuals in this public area. Because individuals are not recognizable in the video that is streamed to our website, these images do not constitute personal information. Images are not recorded or stored in any manner. If you have any questions or comments regarding the use of our Mall Cam, please contact our Privacy Officer as outlined below (see "Contacting Us").
How We Use Your Personal Information
We use your personal information to:
Administer the various contests and promotions in which you choose to take part, including the use of your name and selected other information to contact you for the purposes of contacting, announcing and promoting the winners of contests and promotions; Process financial transactions when you purchase gift certificates from our Customer Service desk; and Facilitate your career search by providing our merchants with the employment information you choose to make available on the "Resume posting" section of our website or in response to the job postings that are posted from time to time on our website. Your participation in any of the above programs is completely voluntary and you therefore have the choice whether or not to disclose personal information to us.
When We Disclose Your Personal Information Except with your consent, we will not sell, license, trade or rent your personal information to or with others. Seaway Mall reserves the right to disclose personal information to a third party if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so. Seaway Mall also reserves the right to disclose and/or transfer personal information to a third party in the event of a proposed or actual purchase, sale (including a liquidation, realization, foreclosure or repossession), lease, merger, amalgamation or any other type of acquisition, disposal, transfer, conveyance or financing of all or any portion of Seaway Mall or of any of the business or assets or shares of Seaway Mall or a division thereof in order for you to continue to receive the same products and services from the third party.
Knowledge and Consent
Seaway Mall collects personal information about you only when you voluntarily provide it. Typically, we will seek consent for the use or disclosure of your personal information at the time of collection. In certain circumstances, consent may be sought after the information has been collected but before use (for example, when we want to use information for a purpose not previously identified). The form of consent that we seek, including whether it is express or implied, will largely depend on the sensitivity of the personal information and the reasonable expectations of the individual in the circumstances. You may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. If you wish to withdraw your consent at any time, please contact our Privacy Officer at 1.800.561.0697 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will inform you of the implications of withdrawing consent. We will not, as a condition of the supply of a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of information beyond that required to fulfill the explicitly specified and legitimate purposes for which the information is being provided.
