  • To our third party service providers who provide services such as Web site hosting, maintenance, data analysis, payment processing, order fulfillment, infrastructure provision, IT services, customer service, email delivery services, credit card processing, auditing services and other similar services, but only to the extent necessary or useful to provide such services, and only pursuant to contractual obligations requiring such third parties to maintain the privacy and security of your Personal Information.

Please note that any Personal Information you post or disclose on Forums will become public information, and may be available to visitors of the Site. EZTV urges you to be very careful when deciding to disclose your Personal Information, or any other information, on the site.
  • To a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of EZTV’s business, assets or stock (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings).
  • When a government institution has requested the information and the information relates to the enforcement of any law, carrying out an investigation relating to the enforcement of a law or relates to national security and/or defence
  • If we have reasonable grounds to believe that the information relates to a breach of an agreement or a contravention of any law that has been, or is about to be, committed, we will disclose the Personal Information to an investigative body or government institution
  • When we are required to comply with subpoenas, warrants issued or court orders made by a court, person or body with jurisdiction to compel the production of information or when we are required to comply with rules of court regarding the production of records.

Implied Consent: In some cases, consent is implied. For example, if we ask to be provided with Personal Information for a stated purpose and the Personal Information is provided without objection, implied consent has been given.

Limiting the Use, Retention, and Disclosure of Personal Information: EZTV will only use or disclose Personal Information for the purpose for which it was collected, unless the individual consents, or if the use or disclosure is authorized by the terms of this Privacy Policy, PIPEDA or another legal authority. We will only keep your Personal Information for as long as it remains necessary or relevant for the purposes stated above or as otherwise required by law. Once it becomes unnecessary to retain such Personal Information or is otherwise required by law to be removed or deleted from EZTV’s records, EZTV will take all steps as necessary to ensure the secure removal and destruction of any Personal Information records in its possession.

Security of Personal Information: We will maintain the strictest confidentiality of all Personal Information collected, and will only disclose such information to our employees, or to third parties, when you have consented to such a disclosure.

We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information about you. We will maintain your personal information in secure data storage to safeguard it from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Our soft copy data storage will be protected by the appropriate technological measures (e.g. passwords and encryption) and any hard copies of Personal Information will be kept in locked filing cabinets or kept in offices with restricted access.

In the event that you believe you may be the victim of identity theft or other illegal conduct, please contact the appropriate federal, provincial or local law enforcement agencies directly.

Individual Access to Information: You have the right to access, verify and update your Account Information and preferences at any time, including whether you want EZTV to contact you about specials and new products. You may request deletion of your EZTV account by contacting the Privacy Officer and verifying your identity.

Upon request and following appropriate identification of the requestor that is satisfactory both to EZTV and under PIPEDA, an individual will be informed of the existence, use and any disclosure of his/her Personal Information. The individual will be given access to that information if requested. A reasonable administration fee may be charged to supply the information. The approximate cost of the administration fee will be communicated to the individual prior to the release of the information.

If the Personal Information held by EZTV is inaccurate, EZTV shall amend the information as required. In limited circumstances, EZTV may refuse an individual access to their Personal Information; however, access will only be refused in accordance with PIPEDA or other applicable laws. For instance, if the Personal Information is protected by solicitor-client privilege, or would reveal confidential commercial information, EZTV may refuse access to such information.

Products Offered in Partnership with Third Parties and Third Party Links: In general, EZTV’s Service accesses third party information (such as your Facebook account information) through application interfaces. EZTV may provide links to third-party Web sites, such as Facebook, as a service to our users. EZTV may also carry advertisements from other companies. When you click on links of third parties on a EZTV site or in an application, you may leave the site or application. Some of these third party sites may be co-branded with our name/logo or our affiliated entity’s name/logo, even though they are not operated or maintained by us. This Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices of Web sites operated by third parties, whether they are linked to or otherwise accessible from a EZTV website or the Service. The inclusion of a link or accessibility of third party Web sites does not imply endorsement of such third party Web site by us.

Opting Out of Marketing-Related Communications: You may opt out from receiving marketing-related emails, texts, phone messages or other communications from EZTV on a going-forward basis by indicating so where requested or otherwise contacting EZTV as set out below.

EZTV will try to comply with your opt-out request as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt out as described above, this will apply to marketing messages from EZTV only. EZTV will not be able to remove your Personal Information from third parties to whom you have previously authorized EZTV to share such information (i.e., to which we have already provided your Personal Information as of the date that we implement your opt-out request). Please also note that if you do opt-out of receiving marketing-related messages from us, EZTV may still send you important administrative messages, and you cannot opt-out from receiving administrative messages.

Changes in Practices: EZTV will keep this Privacy Policy current. EZTV will inform you of any changes that it makes by updating this Privacy Policy accordingly and amending the date first written above to reflect the date of changes. In addition, EZTV will inform you by e-mail that its Privacy Policy has changed.

Children: EZTV assumes that if you are legally providing us with credit card information that you are an adult or are otherwise authorized to do so. We encourage parents and guardians to participate in their children’s activities and to supervise them when they access on-line resources. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. No information should be submitted to or posted on EZTV sites by users under 13 years of age. If a child under the age of 13 submits Personal Information to EZTV sites, we will delete the information as soon as we discover it was provided by a child under 13 years of age. We will not and do not use such information for any purpose.
