1. Purposes of collecting personal information
Some Webcast Canada webcasts, designed to be private and secure, may require you to submit personal information using an online registration form. The purpose or purposes of collecting personal data will be disclosed to you on the registration form before you are asked to fill out the registration fields and click the "Submit" button. If you register directly with a webcast host - the organization that is putting on the webcast - and not through a webcast registration page, then it is the responsibility of the host to inform you of all reasons your data is being collected and for how long. Webcast Canada, on its webcast registration forms, will never ask you for financial information, your social insurance number or any information considered to be highly confidential. Webcasts typically require only your name, email address and location. This information is collected for one or both of the following reasons: To allow you access to the webcast or webcast recording, and also to allow the webcast host to evaluate the success of a webcast or recording. Your IP address will also be recorded for analytics and security purposes. Your personal information will never be shared publicly or with a third party or third parties unless the webcast host requests and receives your consent to do so, and unless required by law.
2. How long your data will be retained
It is the Webcast Canada Policy to permanently delete your personal information when no longer required. In the case of a live webcast, deletion will take place immediately following the end of the webcast. In some cases, your personal information is stored for a longer period of time in order to allow you access to a webcast recording. When the recording is removed, your data is also deleted. In cases where a webcast host is using data to evaluate the success of a webcast, your data is permanently deleted upon the completion of the evaluation, typically within one week of a webcast.
