Corus may interact with you across our various Sites and in a variety of contexts. Depending on the context, we may need to collect personal information from you to allow us to provide you with our products and services, or for other legitimate purposes outlined below, at the time of collection, or as otherwise permitted by law. We only collect, use, and retain personal information to the extent necessary to carry out our intended purposes.

The following are common examples where we may collect your personal information:

  1. Contests

We administer public contests.

We will only publish a contest winner’s name and/or photograph after receiving prior written consent from the winner and the appropriate, fully completed release forms. If a parent or guardian enters a contest on behalf of a child who is under the age of majority in their province of residence, we will only publish the minor’s name and/or photograph after the parent or guardian takes an active step to confirm consent and we receive fully completed release forms from them.

  1. Direct communication about programming and accessibility

In some cases, you may communicate directly with us in relation to our programming, including when participating in interactive program segments (such as calling in to a talk radio program) and providing feedback or expressing concerns to us about a program segment after it airs. In those cases, we may collect personal information from you (such as name, e-mail address, phone number or mailing address, as applicable) for purposes of establishing your identity.

For these purposes, we may collect personal information, such as demographic data, preferences or interests.

The personal information collected in connection with a research study or focus group will depend on the nature of the underlying study.

  1. Fulfilling a transaction

We may need to collect personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, email address, or billing address, to fulfill a transaction between us and you, for example, if you purchase a ticket for one of our events.

For the above purposes, we may also collect data across your smartphone, tablet, desktop computer or other connected devices (cross-device data). For more information, refer to the “Cookies and Online Interest Based Advertising” section below.

Additionally, when you seek to access age-gated content on one of our Sites, we may request information about your date of birth to establish that you are old enough to access the content.

  1. SMS and push notifications

If we offer SMS notification or push notification functionality, and you choose to receive SMS notifications and/or push notifications, we may send such notifications to your mobile device. We will collect and store the information you provide, including your telephone number. You can opt out of receiving SMS and push notifications and you can adjust the types of notifications you receive by editing your notification settings on your mobile device (see “Withdrawal of Consent” below). We will not charge a fee to use SMS notifications or push notifications, but any text messages sent and/or received are subject to standard text messaging rates. Additionally, text messages sent and/or received count towards a monthly quota as any other messages do. Any users, whether sending or receiving text messages, should be aware that standard text messaging rates may apply. Text messaging rates can normally be found by asking your mobile carrier.

  1. Show/content submissions

Occasionally, you will have the opportunity to submit ideas or content such as videos or audio for inclusion on one of our Sites. At the time of submission, you may be asked to include your name, contact number, email, or address. Only those who produce the show in question and designated support staff will have access to the contact information and it will not be passed on to a third party. People who submit ideas or content may be contacted if the show’s producers are interested in using idea submissions.

  1. Chat forums

Our Sites may, from time-to-time, feature forums (such as message boards and chat rooms) which enable our users to communicate with each other. We do not moderate and are not responsible for the content that you or any user posts on any forum on the Site. All personal information you post in a forum becomes public information and may be viewed, collected, and used by any visitor to the Site, and may expose you to unsolicited messages. This is beyond our control. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you do not post any personal information on any forum that you do not wish to disclose to others.

  1. “Refer A Friend” Or “Sharing” Features

If you choose to use a referral service to “tell a friend” about the website, a specific article or feature on the website, or a contest that is running, we may ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will then send your friend an email on your behalf inviting them to visit the content which you have shared. We store your friend’s name and email for a short period for the sole purpose of sending this email and for redundancy checking, to be sure that your friend does not receive multiple copies of the same email message. We do not keep or use this information for any other purpose.

In the event that you provide your friend’s name and email address, you represent that you have their consent, and you agree to provide them with the information contained in this Privacy Policy, exempting us from any liability in this regard. However, we may carry out the necessary verifications to verify this fact, adopting the corresponding due diligence measures, in accordance with applicable law.

  1. Social Media Campaigns

We may collect personal information from you for execution of our social media campaigns, such as name, email address or your device ID.

The relevant social media platform may collect your personal information separately from us. Please review the “ When do we link to our business partners’ and third- party content/websites?” section below for more information.

  1. Tailored Content and Advertising

When you engage with us, we may collect certain information, such as your gender, age range, device ID number, e-mail address, IP address, postal code, or location data, and combine them with data from other sources to better understand your preferences and provide you with a more tailored experience and relevant advertising.

For example, when you subscribe to our newsletters, enter our contests, or download our apps, we may collect this information and combine it with your usage activities (such as browsing, viewing habits or app usage) when you watch our programming through our owned and operated platforms (such as the Global TV app) or our partner platforms (for example, StackTV on Amazon, Rogers, and Fubo TV, or Pluto TV), and with aggregated demographic data from our own and our partner organizations. We may also combine this data from a third-party source to support various forms of segmentation for marketing and advertising purposes, content, or experience personalization.

Our analysis of your personal information may involve automated decisions, wherein software processes your data along with other factors to present you with more pertinent content and advertisements.

We will always comply with an applicable privacy legislation and industry best practices and standards  before using your information in this way, and you can opt out at any time if you change your mind. See “Withdrawal of Consent” below for more information.

Most of the personal information we collect from you for the purposes stated above will be provided directly by you.   However, in the cases immediately below, we may collect personal information from you indirectly.

  1. Information from third parties

We may collect information about you from our service providers acting on our behalf, your telecommunications service provider that makes our services or content available to you, or other third parties, such as data licensors and aggregators, marketing companies, advertising partners, programming distributors, social media platforms, and public databases.

  1. Information inferred about you

We may derive additional information or draw inferences about you based on the information we have collected from you directly, through your device, from our partners and service providers or through third parties in accordance with their privacy policies.

We collect information about the computer or device you use to access our Sites. Our Sites use cookies and other technologies, like web beacons, pixel tags or your device’s unique identifier, to provide the best browsing experience possible.

Corus participates in the DAAC AdChoices program, and adheres to its principles of education, transparency, customer control, data security, sensitive data, and accountability.

Online interest-based advertising uses information gathered through your browser or mobile device about your visits over time and across different websites and apps in order to help predict your preferences and show you advertisements that are more likely to be of interest to you.

We may engage third party advertising and analytics companies to collect personal information from you when you access our Sites, and/or serve interest-based advertisements to you when you visit our Sites.

We may also infer information about you based on the information you provide to us directly, or indirectly from third parties, including information received from social media sites in accordance with your privacy settings on those Sites. We may also collect demographic, psychographic and lifestyle profile data from third parties, which may be predictively associated with you, based on what we know about you. For example, data may be available suggesting common interests or attributes of people living in a specific geographic area. Any of the above information that is considered to be personal information will be treated as such according to this Privacy Policy.

If you would like more information about these practices, or would like to better understand your choices please visit .

AdChoices’ various tools allow you to opt out of interest-based advertising from one or all of the participating companies (including Corus) on websites and apps.

Anonymous information is information that is not related to an identified or an identifiable natural person and cannot be combined with other information to re-identify individuals. Aggregated information are information elements collated on a number of individuals, typically used for the purposes of making comparisons or identifying patterns. If personal information is properly anonymized so that it can no longer be linked to you, the information is no longer considered personal.

We, including our affiliates and such other third party as we may designate reserve the right to use, maintain, update, disclose and/or sell anonymous, aggregated information to third parties.

We may share your  personal information with Corus affiliates, business partners, external suppliers and service providers who perform functions on our behalf, including fulfilling orders, providing streaming services or other third-party content, providing promotional materials to our users, sending e-mail, managing, compiling, storing and processing data, administering contests, processing credit card payments, providing customer service, or for any other purposes described under ““What personal information do we collect and why do we collect and use it?” above.

We do not share your personal information with these parties except to the extent necessary to enable us to conduct our business or to provide the services and products to you directly or on our behalf.  We require any such service providers or suppliers to store your personal information securely, and to only use your personal information in a manner consistent with an applicable privacy legislation and industry best practices and standards.

Corus will not disclose your personal information to a third party for purposes other than those described above unless you have explicitly consented to this disclosure, or in connection with a prospective sale of all or part of our business assets, or as required by law, such as in compliance with a court order.

Some of these third parties may be located outside of your province of residence or outside of Canada and may access and process your personal information from the United States or other jurisdictions. In such circumstances, we require the personal information to be protected with appropriate safeguards consistent with applicable privacy legislation and industry best practices and standards. Nevertheless, your personal information may be subject to the laws of other countries.

We will store your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary or relevant to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected, or for longer periods as required or authorized by law.

When your personal information is no longer needed, we will use reasonable efforts to delete, destroy or de-identify your personal information in a secure manner, and we will request any third parties storing your personal information on our behalf to delete, destroy or de-identify your personal information in a secure manner.

We use appropriate security safeguards which vary depending on the sensitivity of the personal information. This includes policies and procedures in place to protect the integrity, privacy, and confidentiality of the information that we collect and maintain, and contracts with third parties that manage the information provided by you. We review our security procedures and tools to ensure they meet industry standards. When using personal information that we have collected, at Corus, only individuals with a legitimate business need will have access to your personal information. Please be aware that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.  The open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks connecting you to our systems without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.

To help ensure the privacy of your information, we urge you not to share your username and password with anyone and recommend that you change your password frequently and store it in a safe place. If you are asked to create a username or password, please select words that do not personally identify you. We may offer “auto login” which allows users to enter member areas of our website without re-entering password information. You may want to disable auto login on your device, in order to prevent access by unauthorized users of your device.

We will make reasonable efforts to comply with certain types of requests with respect to your personal information to the extent that they do not compromise privacy or security interests and as required by applicable laws.

Before complying with such requests, we will need to reasonably verify your identity and the scope of your request. This will likely include asking for additional information at the time of the request, such as which Corus entity you interacted with and under what circumstances (for example, when entering a contest or subscribing to a membership for a particular Corus brand), the type of personal information involved, and the date range of your interaction.
