Welcome to the Tandem Expositions Inc. website (“Tandem”).
We are committed to providing transparency with respect to our practices in handling Personal information.
1.1. Application and Scope
1.2. Definition of Personal Information
1.3. Collection of Personal Information
1.3.1. Information you provide directly to us. In many cases, we collect Personal information directly from you when you are interacting with us, for instance:
188.8.131.52. Contact information, such as name, email address, postal address, gender, date of birth, mailing address, phone number, facsimile number and mobile number when you create an account on Tandem’s Websites or Apps, make an inquiry or contact us in person or through Tandem’s Websites or Apps or when you enter a contest or promotion;
184.108.40.206. Communications preferences and correspondence you send to us;
220.127.116.11. Information collected about you offline (including via facsimile, mail, or in person when you visit our Venues).
1.3.2. Information Collected Automatically. In some cases, we may collect information automatically which may not necessarily identify you as an individual. For instance, we may collect the following type of information:
18.104.22.168. Traffic and Device Count. We may use cameras and other technologies at our Venues to conduct anonymous video analytics and anonymous traffic analysis. These practices allow to track the number of individuals at a specific location and estimate certain demographic information such as gender and age, but not to identify them or store photos or videos of them. We may also track devices which have accessed our Wi-Fi, on an anonymous basis, for similar purposes. We may use statistical data about traffic at our Venues to help us manage our Venues, and we may share this statistical information with our business partners, including advertisers.
22.214.171.124. Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics which allows us to see information on user online activities including, but not limited to, page views, source and time spent on our Websites and/or Apps. This information is depersonalized and is displayed as numbers, meaning that it cannot be tracked back to individuals. You may opt-out of our use of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics opt-out page.
126.96.36.199. Online Advertising. We use advertising and remarketing services (such as Google AdWords Remarketing, Facebook Advertising, LinkedIn Advertising, Adobe Analytics and Localytics), to advertise Tandem across the Internet and to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors of our Websites. These services will display ads to you based on what parts of the Websites you have viewed by placing a cookie on your web browser when you visit our Websites. It could mean that previous visitors who have not completed a task on our Websites receive an advertisement on the Google search results page, on a site in the Google Display Network or on a social media platform. If you do not wish to receive such personalized advertising, you may opt out by changing your settings on the social media services you are using, through the advertising services (for instance by visiting Google’s Ads Preferences Manager). You can also generally opt-out of receiving personalized ads from third party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada. Please visit the DAAC opt-out page for more information.
188.8.131.52. Geolocation Information. If you choose to use our Apps, we may collect geolocation information if you have activated this functionality.
184.108.40.206. Social Media. If you sign into one of our Websites or Apps using a social media account such as Facebook, Google, LinkedIn or Twitter (“Social Media Platforms”), we will collect information that you have added in your registration profile from those accounts and which is made available to us by default by Social Media Platforms. We may also collect Personal information about you from your use of Social Media Platforms, through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) Personal information about you, such as details of your friends/connections, “likes”, comments you have shared, groups and location. In addition, we may receive Personal information about you if other users of a third-party website give us access to their profiles and you are one of their friends/connections or information about you is otherwise accessible through your friends’/connections’ web page, profile page, or similar page on a Social Media Platform or other third party website or interactive service. We may supplement the information we collect about you directly with the information we receive from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you and send you details of promotions and/or offers which we believe may be of interest to you, although at all times, in compliance with applicable privacy laws.
1.3.3. Information we obtain from other sources. In some other cases, we may collect Personal information from third parties (for example, from the vendor through which you purchased a ticket to our event), with your prior consent and/or as authorized by law.
1.4. Use of Personal Information
1.4.1. Tandem generally uses Personal information for the following purposes:
a) to provide our products and services to our customers, to establish and administer their accounts and to respond to their inquiries;
b) to authenticate the identity and preserve the privacy of individuals contacting us by telephone, electronic means or otherwise;
c) for internal training, quality assurance, risk management, fraud detecting and safety purposes;
d) to meet legal and regulatory requirements;
e) to understand and assess the interests, wants and changing needs of customers with a view to provide personalized products and services, improve our products and services and develop new ones (for instance, we may assess the types of events our customers prefer to determine which types of events to organize in the future);
1.4.2. When possible, rather than using Personal information, we will anonymize and/or aggregate Personal information so that it no longer identifies an individual and use it for the purposes mentioned above or any legal purpose.
1.5. Sharing of Personal Information
220.127.116.11. Business partners. In certain circumstances, we may share Personal information with our business partners. We may also share Personal information with business partners with your consent or as authorized by law.
18.104.22.168. Service providers. We may hire service providers, which may be affiliates, to perform services on our behalf. This may include, without limitation, a person or an organization retained by Tandem to perform work on its behalf (e.g. ticketing). We provide them with the limited amount of information necessary in order for them to provide the services required. They are prohibited from using the information for purposes other than to facilitate and carry out the services they have been engaged to provide. These service providers are not permitted to disclose this information to others. Tandem will seek to protect Personal information disclosed to third parties by contractual agreements.
22.214.171.124. As permitted or required by law. From time to time, Tandem may be compelled to disclose Personal information in response to a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, valid demand, search warrant, government investigation or other legally valid request or enquiry. We may also disclose Personal information to our accountants, auditors, agents and lawyers in connection with the enforcement or protection of our legal rights. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful or to law enforcement, in an emergency or where required or permitted by law. We may release certain Personal information when we have reasonable grounds to believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of others and ourselves, in accordance with or as authorized by law.
126.96.36.199. Business transaction. We may disclose Personal information to a third party in connection with a sale or transfer of business or assets, an amalgamation, re-organization or financing of parts of our business. However, in the event the transaction is completed, your Personal information will remain protected by applicable privacy laws. In the event the transaction is not completed, we will require the other party not to use or disclose your Personal information in any manner whatsoever and to completely delete such information.
Only those employees of Tandem or trusted third party contractors, who need access for business reasons, or whose duties reasonably so require, will be granted access to Personal information about customers.
1.6. Your Consent and Right to Withdraw Consent
1.6.2. Withdrawing your consent for integral purposes. If you withdraw your consent for purposes that are integral to the provision of our products and services, we may have to limit the services or products we are able to provide. If you ask Tandem to shut down your account or delete your information, we will disable your account within a reasonable period of time.
