Privacy Policy

Canadian Circular Economy Summit is committed to safeguarding the personal information entrusted to us by our visitors. We manage your personal information in accordance with Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and other applicable laws. This policy outlines the principles and practices we follow in protecting your personal information.

What is personal information?

Personal information means information about an identifiable individual. This includes an individual’s name, home address, phone number, email address, age, gender, marital or family status, an identifying number, financial information, educational history, etc.

What personal information do we collect?

We collect only the personal information that we need for the purposes of providing services to our visitors. This information may include your name, contact information, ticketing history, credit card information, and communications such as emails or verbal feedback.

We do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals through this website unless it is provided voluntarily and knowingly, as in via our email subscription forms, event registration information, or ticket purchases.

We do collect non-personal and aggregate information from our site visitors.

We automatically log information about visits to this website in the normal course of establishing and maintaining web connections. Our servers record statistical information such as visitors' IP addresses, time and duration of visit, and web pages visited.

Like most websites, ours uses "cookies" to obtain non-personal information from site visitors (small data files that your web browser places on your computer when you visit a website). Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but can be configured not to accept them or to indicate when a cookie is being sent, which the user is able to customize.

How do we use and disclose personal information?

Canadian Circular Economy Summit uses personal information for billing purposes, to deliver tickets, and to contact participants about programming, special events, special offers, and ongoing communication about circular economy and related environmental issues. Personal information may also be used to contact you for the option to provide us with feedback.

This site does not extract personal information in this process, nor do we provide this information to third parties.

Cookies allow us to speed up the navigation process and to make the website experience more efficient; they also help us measure the traffic on our website so that we can assess the effectiveness of our education and outreach efforts. If you choose to provide personal information in order to sign up for email communications, we will only use that information to contact you about the event.

As the Canadian Circular Economy Summit is a partnership between Circular Economy Leadership Canada (and it’s parent organization The Natural Step Canada) and Circular Innovation Council, information you provide through this site will be available and accessible to those organizations, exclusively for the purposes outlined in this privacy policy.
