Personal Information” is information about an identifiable individual, including your name, age, residential address and e-mail address, credit card and billing information, and your views and personal opinions.  Publicly available information, such as business contact information or a public directory listing of your name, address, telephone number or information that is aggregated and not associated with a specific individual, including demographic information and statistics, or anonymous information is not considered Personal Information.


We will only request Personal Information from you that is necessary to establish, manage and maintain our relationship with you.  Personal Information is collected by Insight when you provide it to us, such as, when you fill out an application to participate, or otherwise participate in one of our productions, contact us via the Site, post content on the Site that may contain Personal Information or call us. We may also collect your IP address when you use the Site and your location data if you choose to turn on the location services on your mobile device.

We may also receive Personal Information from our business partners and other third parties, provided that such third parties confirm to us that they have obtained your consent or we have obtained your consent in this regard.

Insight does not trade or sell Personal Information to others.

As described in greater detail below, Insight may generally disclose Personal Information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone’s rights, property, or safety. Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

Limited disclosure of Personal Information to third party service providers (“Third Party Service Providers”) may be required as part of Insight fulfilling its stated business duties and day-to-day operations.  However, information will only be disclosed to such Third Party Service Providers if they have entered into a written agreement with us to abide by this Policy. We will limit this disclosure to only the Personal Information that is reasonably necessary for the purpose or service for which the Third Party Service Provider is engaged. We will use contractual and other means to provide a comparable level of protection while the information is being processed by these Third Party Service Providers, including limiting such providers to using your Personal Information solely to provide Insight with the specific service for which they were engaged, and for no other purpose.

We may be involved in the sale or transfer of some or all of our businesses. As part of that sale or transfer transaction, we may disclose your Personal Information to the acquiring organization, but will require the acquiring organization to agree to protect the privacy of your Personal Information in a manner that is consistent with the Policy.

We may share your Personal Information with law enforcement, national security agencies or other governmental officials, as required or permitted by law, such as in response to a court order or a verified request relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity.


We will retain your Personal Information for only so long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, and for such periods of time as may be required to comply with applicable law.

When your Personal Information is no longer required, we will make all reasonable efforts to ensure all electronic and hard copies of such information are securely destroyed and irreversibly deleted from our systems.

Your Personal Information may be processed and stored outside of the province in which you reside and/or outside of Canada.  Under the laws of these other jurisdictions, in certain circumstances foreign courts, law enforcement agencies or regulatory agencies may be entitled to access your Personal Information without notice to you.  By submitting your Personal Information, you consent to such transborder dataflows.


By providing us with your Personal Information, you consent to our using your Personal Information for the purpose set forth above.  Other than as required by law, your Personal Information will not be used for any other purpose without your consent.  You can at any time withdraw consent to receive further information or correspondence from us by contacting our Chief Privacy Officer at the address set out below.


We take all reasonable measures designed to safeguard your Personal Information against unauthorized access, use, disclosure, copying or modification. Such measures, which may necessarily evolve over time as the availability and effectiveness of methods vary, include physical, organizational and technological safeguards, such as:

  • restricting access to Personal Information to employees and Third Party Service Providers who need such information for a legitimate business purpose, and who are required to abide by this Privacy Policy and Insight’s internal privacy and security practices;
  • restricting access to our systems, accounts and electronic databases or other electronic formats that may contain Personal Information through password protection and internal security policies; and
  • implementing technical security measures such as firewall technology, anti-malware screening and data encryption technology.

While Insight employs security measures, you should be aware that there is a residual risk in transmitting any data electronically. Despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.  This risk is inherent in all Internet dealings.


The Site may contain links to independently owned, controlled and/or managed third party websites to which the Policy does not apply.  Please note that we do not monitor or control the content that appears on these sites and such content may be constantly changing.  If you view these sites, the sites may assign a cookie.  Insight does not control these cookies, nor is it responsible for any marketing or other use of your information by these third parties.  We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each website you visit.


Insight wants to ensure that information about you is accurate, complete and current.  Please inform Insight of any change of name, address or other information.  In addition, you have the right to access the Personal Information that Insight has collected, stored, and disclosed about you, subject to any legal restrictions. If there are errors in the information in your files, you may request that it be changed.  If we have disclosed inaccurate information about you to a third party, we will be pleased to contact the third party in order to advise them of the error.

In order to access this information, you must put your request in writing as set out below.
