This Privacy Notice has been prepared by the AMPS Greate White North show committee (collectively, "AGWN", "we", "us" or "our"),
and it sets out the manner in which AGWN collects, uses, discloses and otherwise manages personal information. This Privacy Notice
applies to the privacy practices on our websites located at www.AMPSGreatWhiteNorth.com (the "Website").
Collection and Use Of Personal Information
The term “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, including but not limited to full
name, address, email address, and other information relating to an individual.
We may collect personal information when you:
- Make a request on the Website to receive samples;
- Participate in our contests, sweepstakes or promotions;
- Check the status of your order;
- Complete a survey available through our Website;
- Sign up to receive promotional email and other communications;
- Contact us with a comment, question or complaint.
Contests, Sweepstakes and Promotions: When you enter a contest, sweepstakes or participate in a promotion, we may
collect your name, address, phone number, email address, and other information you provide. We use this information to administer
your participation in the contest, sweepstakes or promotion. At the time you enter the contest, sweepstakes or promotion, we may
obtain your consent to send you future promotional communications. If a contest, sweepstakes or promotion is jointly sponsored by
us and one or more sponsors, your personal information may be shared with such sponsors, as specified at the time of collection of your
personal information. We do not control the use, disclosure or security of your personal information by other sponsors, and recommend you
review their respective privacy notices or statements.
Email and Other Communications: From time to time, we may obtain your consent to send you email and other communications
about products, services, promotions or events relating to AGWN that may be of interest to you.
Our policy is to not disclose your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes unless we first
obtain your opt-in consent.
You can opt-out of receiving promotional messages from us by doing one of the following:
- If you have received an email, you can follow the opt-out or "unsubscribe" instructions provided in your email.
- If you have received a text message, you unsubscribe by replying with “STOP”.
- You can always request to be unsubscribed by contacting us through the "Contact Us" page on our Website or using the contact information set out below.
Contact Us: When you contact us with a comment, question or complaint, you may be asked to provide personal information
(such as your name, address, email address and a phone number) along with additional information we need to help us promptly answer
your question or respond to your comment or complaint. We may also retain this information to assist you in the future and to
improve our customer service, product and service offerings, and events and promotions.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Our policy is that we will not disclose, trade, rent, sell or otherwise transfer your personal information, without your consent,
except as otherwise set out herein. We may maintain or process your personal information in the US or other jurisdictions.
Service Provider Arrangements: We may transfer (or otherwise make available) your personal information to third
parties who provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use service providers to authorize and process sample orders,
host our Website, operate certain of its features, serve advertisements on our Website, send email or other communications,
or run our contests and promotions.
Your personal information may be maintained and processed by our service providers in the US or other jurisdictions. Our service
providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose
personal information for their own marketing or other purposes.
Ratings/Reviews: If you provide a product rating and/or review and choose to permit AGWN and the brands whose
products you try to use your feedback to help others make smart shopping decisions, AGWN may use personal information you have
provided such as your first name and last initial, city and province/state, gender, product rating or review, your public IP
address at the time of submitting the Review, and other information you provide about your experience with the product (the “Review”)
for the purposes of displaying the Review to the public. AGWN may also provide this information to the brands whose products you have
tried, and if applicable, their service provider. The public IP address is disclosed to the brand partner or their service provider
for review fraud detection and mitigation purposes.
Sale of Business: We may transfer any information we have about you as an asset in connection with a merger or
sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of AGWN or as part of a
corporate reorganization or stock sale or other change in corporate control.
Legal: AGWN and our Canadian, US and other service providers may provide your personal information in response
to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order, or to an investigative body in the case of a breach of an agreement
or contravention of law, or as otherwise required by applicable Canadian, US or other law. We may also disclose personal information
where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or as otherwise permitted by law.
