Video Surveillance

In the course of conducting its business, Aquasport may potentially monitor the activities of individuals in respect of its operations and its property. For example, some Aquasport facilities are equipped with surveillance cameras. These cameras are generally in high-risk areas. Where in use, surveillance cameras are there for the protection of employees and third parties, and to protect against theft, vandalism and damage to goods and property. Video tapes recording images are routinely destroyed and not shared with third parties unless there is suspicion of a crime, in which case they may be turned over to the police or other appropriate government agency or authority.

We may share your personal information with our employees, contractors, consultants, affiliates, and other parties who require such information to assist us with managing our relationship with you, including: (i) third parties that provide services to us; (ii) third parties that assist Aquasport in the provision of services to you; and (iii) third parties whose services we use to conduct our business.

 

For example, we may share your personal information from time to time with our third party information technology, data processing and payment processing service providers so that we may operate our business. We may also share your personal information with our third party marketing agency in the United States so that they can provide us with certain marketing services. As a result, your personal information may be collected, used, processed, stored or disclosed in Canada and the United States. As such, your personal information may potentially be accessible to law enforcement and national security authorities of that jurisdiction.

 

In addition, your personal information may be disclosed or transferred to another party during the course of the grant of a security interest in Aquasport assets, or completion of, all or a part of Aquasport through, for example, an asset or share sale, or some other form of business combination, merger or joint venture, or bankruptcy proceeding, provided that such party is bound by appropriate agreements or obligations and required to use or disclose your personal information in a manner consistent with the use and disclosure provisions of this Privacy Policy, unless you consent otherwise.

 

Finally, your personal information may be disclosed:

Aquasport endeavors to maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to prevent your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal or destruction. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security: for example, unauthorized access use, or disclosure, (ii) hardware or software failure, and (iii) other events may compromise the security of your personal information at any time.
