For the purposes of this Policy:

  • “Visitor” means an individual who has requested information from TPLC by accessing its website at www.tplc.ca and is also referred to as “you”;

  • “TPLC” is also referred to as “we”, “our” or “us”;

Personal Information

TPLC does not collect any information and/or store it in an online environment, other than the information you submit to receive printed materials from us or to sign up for our e-mail newsletter.

Use & Disclosure

TPLC does not share, exchange or lend personal information to any third party except with persons for purposes of administration and to contracted service providers for providing services relating to business and who agree to comply with our policies relating to privacy and confidentiality of information.

We use our electronic newsletter and e-mail for communicating to our stakeholder from whom we have received consent. If you sign up for our e-mail newsletter, please provide only your e-mail address. Each newsletter that is e-mailed to you will display instructions on how to unsubscribe (opt-out) from our mailing list.

Statistics are gathered from the e-mails in order to track the effectiveness of the mailings. This information is only used for our own internal purposes.

Please note that there are circumstances where the use and/or disclosure of Personal Information may be justified or permitted, or where we are obliged to disclose information without consent. Such circumstances may include:

  • where we believe, upon reasonable grounds, that it is necessary to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of an identifiable person or group;
  • where it is necessary to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit any damages that we may sustain; or

In situations where we are obliged or permitted to disclose information without consent, we will not disclose more information than is required in the applicable circumstances.

Logging Practices

TPLC logs HTTP requests to the TPLC’s server. These logs record the IP address of site visitors. An IP address is the number automatically assigned to the computer or to the ISP (Internet Service Provider) requesting a URL.

Our logging is passive and we do not use technologies such as “cookies” or “Web bugs” to maintain any information on site visitors. Logged information, also known as clickstream data, is recorded in non-identifiable form and is used by TPLC staff or those under contract for Web site system administration. Log files are archived and used for systems analysis, maintenance and site evaluation.

This Policy is in effect as of March 1, 2011. We will review, and may revise our privacy practices and this Policy.
