Our Privacy Philosophy
This Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose and safeguard the personal information that you or a third party provide. Providing personal information or authorizing a third party to disclose personal information to us signifies your consent to Global Wave’s collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Policy.
For the purposes of this Policy, “personal information” means information that can identify an individual directly or through other reasonably available means. The meaning of “personal information” shall be interpreted in a manner that conforms with the minimum requirements of applicable provincial and federal privacy legislation.
Our Privacy Principles
Identifying Purposes and Obtaining Your Consent
We identify the purposes for collecting your personal information at or before the time it is collected. We will not collect, use or disclose your personal information without your informed consent, unless required or permitted to do so by law.
As a participant in one of Global Wave’s tournaments, training camps, competitions, or other events or even just registering on our website to receive information, you may be required to provide us with certain information about yourself together with the personal information of those for whom you may be registering, including name, date of birth, address, phone number, email address, credit card details, passport information, dietary restrictions, health information, and medication information.
The collection of this information is done for purposes relating to why you provided the personal information, such as to facilitate your participation in Global Wave events, arrangements relating to such events (such as tournaments, training camps, competition, festivals, etc), your safety, to process payments, to send newsletters, answering your requests for information, communicate with you about events for which you are registered or may be interested, tickets, merchandise offers and special promotions, to provide information about DJ Global Wave and its partners, business associates, corporate sponsors, suppliers, that we believe you may find interesting. Furthermore, this personal information allows us to understand the needs of our participants and/or potential participants and inform you about our events, products and services, or those of our partners, sponsors and/or business associates, that we believe may be of interest to you, via direct marketing, or through mail, telephone or electronic means, and conduct after-sales marketing.
Photographs and/or Videos
Global Wave collects and utilizes the personal information to administer and conduct the events, activities, training, competitions, tournaments, travel (the “Program”) and to collect and use the participant’s name, voice, statements, photograph, image, likeness, actions at the Program and/or participant’s biographical data in any live or recorded form (including, but not limited to, any form of video display or other transmission or reproduction), in whole or in part, for purposes of promoting Global Wave and/or any of the Programs associated with Global Wave, on standard and non-standard television, video, print, electronic and on-line media (including, without limitation, the Internet), and in any other means of distribution, publication or exhibition, whether now known or hereinafter created in connection with the Program, future programs, and the marketing, advertising and promotion thereof.
The choice to provide us with your personal information, either directly or through a third party, is always yours. However, your decision to withhold particular information may limit our ability to register you for an event, allow you to participate for an event or provide you with some of our products or services.
How your information is collected
Personal information may be collected in a number of ways, including: in person, over the phone, by mail, by fax, over the Internet, and from third parties who you have authorized to disclose personal information to us.
We make every reasonable effort to ensure that those third parties that disclose your personal information to us have first obtained your consent. If you believe that a third party has inappropriately disclosed your personal information to us, please contact that third party directly. If the third party does not sufficiently respond to your inquiries, please let us know immediately.
Disclosure to third parties
In the event of a medical emergency, we may disclose personal information to health care professionals or others if we reasonably believe the disclosure is necessary for your health and/or safety.
The type of information we are legally required to disclose may relate to criminal investigations or government tax reporting requirements. In some instances, such as a legal proceeding or court order, we may also be required to disclose your personal information to authorities. Only the information specifically requested is disclosed and we take precautions to satisfy ourselves that the authorities that are making the disclosure request have legitimate grounds to do so.
Your personal information may be disclosed in situations where we are legally permitted to do so, such as in the course of employing reasonable and legal methods to enforce your rights or to investigate suspicion of unlawful activities. We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, health and safety of ourselves and others.
You also understand and agree that we may use your personal information and disclose your personal information to third parties in connection with the proposed or actual financing, insuring, sale, securitization, assignment or other disposal of all or part of our business or assets (including accounts) for the purposes of evaluating and/or performing the proposed transaction. These purposes may include, as examples, permitting such parties to determine whether to proceed or continue with the transaction, fulfilling any reporting or audit requirements to such parties, and/or disclosing personal information as part of concluding a sale or transfer of assets. Our successors and assigns may collect, use and disclose your personal information for substantially the same purposes as those set out in this Policy. In the event the transaction does not go through, we will require, by contract, the other party or parties to the transaction not to use or disclose your personal information in any manner whatsoever for any purpose, and to return or destroy such personal information.
Keeping your information accurate
We make every reasonable effort to keep your personal information as accurate, complete and up-to-date as necessary. If desired, you may verify the accuracy and completeness of your personal information in our records. Despite our best efforts, errors sometimes do occur. Should you identify any incorrect or out-of-date information in your file, we will remedy any such errors on a timely basis.
