Look Both Ways User Agreement


1. Data storage and privacy

Please read this User Agreement (“Agreement”) carefully before submitting or answering a question on LookBothWays.ca (“Look Both Ways”). The following sets out our privacy policy, how we will use your personal data, and limitations on your use of Look Both Ways’s services. By submitting any content to Look Both Ways, notably in the form of a question or answer, you agree to be bound by this Agreement.

An important part of Look Both Ways’s project is collecting data on (i) the types of questions and answers that are being submitted and (ii) where content is coming from. However, your privacy and, more specifically, protecting the disclosure of your personal identity is very important to us. Our privacy and data policy therefore aims to find a balance.

We will store and keep the content of the questions and answers you submit, subject to limitations by law, notably those set out by the Act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector (chapter P‑39.1) (the “Act”). We will use this for a number of reasons, including but not limited to data creation, data analysis, marketing, and funding for the Look Both Ways podcast and website. We will also store all geolocation data that is available to us, subject to limitations by law. This helps us identify where certain questions are coming from and better understand the geographical distribution of questions and concerns throughout Canada, especially in terms of the rural-urban divide.

Because we want to share any interesting insights we might gather from the collection of this data, Look Both Ways retains the right to publish, share, or distribute the content and geolocation data gathered from your submissions.

We aim to anonymize the personal information we collect to avoid you being personally identifiable. This also means that we will make reasonable efforts to mask your personal identity when you may be identifiable through geographic location and the content of your question or answer. For example, if you are a person from a visible minority in a small town, we may not identify the town you are from.

We will also delete all personally identifiable information, except for geolocation data and content you submit, within a reasonable period of time, in accordance with the Act. We will not publish identifiable information such as your name or email address.

We reserve the right to share with law enforcement any identifiable information such as email or IP addresses of users. This includes but is not limited to users who abuse or threaten any other person or who publish personally identifiable information while using Look Both Ways’s services.

If your User-Generated Content does violate any such intellectual property rights, we retain the right to delete it.
