TEDxCalgary is committed to protecting the Personal Information of our users and meeting the requirements of the Personal Information Protection Act  (PIPA). At all times, TEDxCalgary will ensure you are aware why we collect and use your Personal Information, and who we may disclose that information to when you register with us. 

 What is Personal Information?

"Personal Information" refers to any information that identifies you as an individual. It does not include business contact information used for business purposes.

 What Personal Information do we collect?

In order for us to keep you informed, have you enrolled in contests, or to interact with you in a meaningful way through the social features of our website and social media tools, we need to know a little something about you. We collect your Personal Information to either enroll you in a service you have requested, or to inform you of other TEDxCalgary-related events or services you may find interesting.

Personal Information that we collect, use, and disclose may include but is not limited to your name, email address, and social media user ID information (your public ID on a particular service).

TEDxCalgary will treat your Personal Information in accordance with our Privacy Statement and any written agreement between you and TEDxCalgary. To better help us conduct business with you, please ensure that all Personal Information you provide to us is true, accurate, and complete.

 What Personal Information do we share?

In the case of our events, we may have special arrangements with our partners for discounted tickets or other offers that are beneficial to our participants. In such cases, we may ask you for additional information when you are purchasing such discounted tickets, which is shared only with the partner in question and always with your knowledge. This information is not used for any other purposes, and is subject to the provisions of PIPA and/or the Alberta FOIP Act if the partner is governed under that act. If you do not wish to share this information, you are able to purchase non-discounted tickets that are not subject to those terms and conditions.

 Limiting your Personal Information

Except where your relationship with us is governed by securities law, regulatory requirements, or agreement, you may choose not to provide TEDxCalgary with some or all of your Personal Information. In such cases, please know that not providing certain Personal Information may mean TEDxCalgary cannot offer you the products or services you have requested.

 Marketing and other Personal Information use

TEDxCalgary may, in accordance with our Privacy Statement, use your Personal Information for marketing purposes that include but are not limited to communications, contests, and promoting products and services.

 Withdrawing Your Consent

When we ask for your Personal Information, you may withdraw your consent or ask us not to use your Personal Information in the ways described under Marketing and other Personal Information use at any time by de-registering your account.

 Accessing Your Personal Information

If you wish to review, inquire about, or verify your own Personal Information, or find out to whom we may have disclosed it, please contact TEDxCalgary.

 Protecting your Personal Information

TEDxCalgary is responsible for keeping the Personal Information private and confidential. Passwords and encryption are in place at TEDxCalgary to ensure the privacy of your information while in transit.
