Last updated: March 29, 2022

The Rideau Sports Centre (“RSC”, “we”, “our”, “us”) recognizes the importance of your right to privacy and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use, and disclose any personal information that individually identifies you.

This Privacy Policy describes the RSC policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your information when you use our website (“site”) and our programs and services (“Services”). This Privacy Policy outlines the terms and conditions you agree to when using our Site and Services. We will only collect, use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

By using our Site and Services, you acknowledge that you have read and understood this Privacy Policy, and you agree and consent to the collection, use, disclosure and other processing of your personal information as outlined in this Privacy Policy.


We may collect and process information that relates to identified or identifiable individuals (“Personal Data”). The types of personal information that we may collect include, but are not limited to:

  • Your name;
  • Your title;
  • Your address;
  • Your phone number;
  • Your email address;
  • Your IP address; and
  • Personal information you give us that we did not request (such as any personal information you voluntarily put into an email to us).


We collect, use and disclose your personal information to comply with legal and regulatory requirements and as otherwise may be permitted or required by applicable laws. We will only use the personal information that we collect for the purposes for which it was collected. Specifically, we collect your personal information for the following purposes:

  • To provide you with our Services as requested by you;
  • To manage, develop and enhance RCS operations, programs and services;
  • To process and collect fees for service;
  • To assess participant needs;
  • To conduct participant satisfaction research;
  • To determine program, service, employment, or volunteer eligibility;
  • To collect date for statistical purposes;
  • For administration, management, strategic planning, decision making, research, and allocating of resources within RSC;
  • Subject to applicable law, to provide you with newsletters and articles to notify you about other programs and services provided by RSC
  • To improve the Site and help us develop new services, apps, tools and Site features; and
  • To meet any legal or regulatory requirements.


We may collect your personal information when you voluntarily provide it to us by using our Site or Services. For example, we may ask you to provide personal information if you:

  • Use our Site or our Services;
  • Register, update, create or sign into an account on our Site and our Services;
  • Send us a question or comment by email, social media or phone;
  • Register to receive newsletters, articles, and updates about our Services; and
  • Otherwise participate in features of our Site or our Services that ask for personal information.

Any personal information posted, used or disclosed on a Facebook page, Twitter page, LinkedIn page, Instagram page, or other social networking page or site is subject to that website’s privacy policy and is not subject to this Privacy Policy.


We limit the collection of personal information to that which is necessary to fulfill the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy and we collect, use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


Your personal information will not be used without your consent for purposes other than those for which it was collected or in accordance with applicable laws. We may wish to use personal information for new or additional purposes, in which case we will amend the Privacy Policy to include these new or additional purposes and will obtain your consent through your continued use of our Site and Services.

To help safeguard your privacy, we will consider using non-identifiable information, such as coded or Anonymous Data that does not identify you whenever possible. We may generate Anonymous Data from personal information collected through the Site and Services by removing information that makes the data personally identifiable to an individual. We may use this Anonymous Data and aggregated data for any reasonable purpose and disclose such data to third parties in our sole discretion.

We may use and disclose your personal information to service providers, data processors and other third parties (“Third Parties”) under the following limited circumstances:

  1. to service providers that help with our operations, Site and Services including, without limitation, for customer services, monitoring and analyzing Site activity, and operating and maintaining the Site. Such service providers and partner companies may only use your personal information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy;
  2. when necessary to protect our safety, property or other rights, our representatives, customers and users of the Site, including to detect and prevent fraud;
  3. if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets to a related company or a third party. Your personal information will remain subject to any pre-existing Privacy Policy unless you agree to the privacy policy of the company or third party that acquires your personal information;
  4. with your consent; or
  5. when otherwise required or permitted by law.

In certain circumstances, personal information can be collected, used or disclosed without your consent. For instance, RSC may disclose personal information without your prior knowledge or consent:

  1. to a lawyer or other legal representative of the RSC;
  2. to a government body or agency in certain circumstances;
  3. to collect a debt, or comply with a subpoena, warrant or other court order; or
  4. in circumstances otherwise required or permitted by law.

We retain your personal information only for as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected (including as required by contract with a funding partner) or as required by law.


As discussed in Article 5, we may engage Third Parties to perform certain services on our behalf and to otherwise provide the Services. These Third Parties may store, process, and transfer personal information on servers located outside of Canada in jurisdictions whose data protection laws may differ from those of Canada, such as the United States of America. As a result, personal information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to the laws in those jurisdictions. For example, information may be shared in response to valid demands or requests from government authorities, courts and law enforcement officials in those countries. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require our Third Parties to maintain protections on personal information that are equivalent to those that apply in Canada.


Our Site may contain links to other sites that are independently owned and operated by third parties. These other sites may have their own privacy policies and are not governed by this Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any sites owned and operated by any third parties. Other sites may collect and treat information collected differently, so we encourage you to carefully read and review the privacy policy of each site you visit.

In no case will Google use your IP address in connection with any other information held by Google. You can set your internet browser to prohibit the installation of cookies, although we must point out that some features and functions of our Site will then be unusable.
