Commitment to Privacy

Protecting the security and privacy of your personal information is important to Tourism Winnipeg and to the way we conduct our business in compliance with laws on privacy and data protection in the areas in which we operate. This Privacy Policy will help you understand the nature of the personal information collected by Tourism Winnipeg, how the information is used and with whom the information may be shared.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time by updating this posting. Please check this Privacy Policy periodically for changes. Your continued use of this site following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy will mean you accept those changes.

Information Collected by "cookies"

Like most major websites, we use cookies for some aspects of measurement of use and quality of performance of our site, particularly the way search pages are delivered.

Tourism Winnipeg engages third party information management service providers to help maintain efficient operations and improve delivery to the user. Because such information management service providers may access our systems, such information management service providers may have access to your information. 

Personally Identifiable Information

Tourism Winnipeg reserves the right to share general demographic information for reporting purposes; however, profiles of individual users are not shared, unless users expressly request information from our members or request information from our site.

However, by providing personal information to Tourism Winnipeg, you acknowledge that you expressly consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information pursuant to this Privacy Policy.

If you are under 18, be sure to obtain your parent's or guardian's permission before you send any information about yourself (your name, address, e-mail address, etc.) to us or anyone else over the Internet. We encourage parents to get involved with their children's online usage and to be aware of the activities in which they are participating.

Use of Personal Information
When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the service or information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information. We may store your personal information and comments for future use and reference in order to maintain an appropriate record of our relationship with you. If there are legal requirements relating to the period of time which we must retain your personal information, we will comply with those requirements.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Tourism Winnipeg may share any of your personal information with Tourism Winnipeg Affiliates or external suppliers, but only to fulfill the purposes of use as described above. Tourism Winnipeg will not sell or provide your personal information to any other party, unless you provide us with explicit permission to do so or unless we are compelled by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to law or to legal process served on Tourism Winnipeg.
