Future Stars will not sell or rent to any third party personal information provided by sports leagues to Future Stars. Future Stars may share personal information with third parties, including without limitation third parties outside of Canada, engaged to assist us in providing services or products to you or to carry out one or more of the Purposes. These service providers are prohibited from using personal information for any purpose other than to provide such assistance and are required to protect personal information disclosed to them by Future Stars, destroy such information following service or product fulfillment or otherwise upon our request, and to comply with the general privacy principles described in this Privacy Policy.

Future Stars reserves the right to collect, use and disclose your personal information and the personal information of your players, staff, and other employees or attendees of your institutions without your knowledge and/or consent where we are allowed or required to by the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act or other applicable legislation.

If you provide us with photographs, images, videos, audio, documents, user profiles, audiovisual materials, questions, comments or other content (collectively, “User Content”), we can reproduce, publish, distribute or otherwise use submitted User Content in any media or format currently existing or later developed in order to provide you with the product, service or information you requested. Please think carefully before deciding what information you provide as User Content. Please note that we do not control who will have access to the information and User Content that you choose to make public, and cannot ensure that parties who have access to such publicly available information will respect your privacy or keep it secure. We are not responsible for the accuracy, use or misuse of any User Content that you provide. If you provide us with any ideas, comments, suggestions, or other feedback related to our products, services or business, you grant us a perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide right to use it for any purpose related to our business without compensation to you.

Future Stars may rely on express consent when collecting personal information. However, where the purpose of the collection of personal information is obvious (such as the use of a credit card to pay an account), Future Stars will rely on implied consent.

Future Stars will only collect personal information where it is necessary to provide the service which you are seeking. Future Stars may also require individuals in certain instances, as a condition of the supply of services, to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of personal information in order to fulfill the Purposes.

Future Stars reserves the right to collect, use or disclose personal information in certain limited circumstances, without the knowledge and consent of the individual, where required or permitted by law. Examples of this include:

  • Future Stars may collect or use personal information to create aggregate information, in order to identify customer needs and trends, and to aid in the development of new services and products.
  • Future Stars may disclose personal information to law enforcement
    authorities if requested by an appropriate governmental authority.
  • Future Stars may disclose personal information without knowledge or consent to collect a debt, to comply with a subpoena, warrant or other court order, or as may otherwise be required or authorized by law.
  • Future Stars may collect, use or disclose personal information without the knowledge and consent of the individual if seeking consent of the individual is reasonably expected to compromise the availability or the accuracy of personal information reasonably required for an investigation or a proceeding such as in the case of an investigation of a breach of agreement or contravention of federal or provincial law.
  • Future Stars may disclose your personal information to third parties in order to collect debts owed to Future Stars.

You may withdraw consent to the use and disclosure of personal information in connection with the services that you have requested at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. Future Stars will inform you of the implications of withdrawing consent. If you wish to withdraw your consent at any time, please contact our Privacy Officer (listed below).

Our Website is operated in Canada, and the information we collect, including personal information, is processed and stored in Canada. By using our Website or requesting our products or services, you are consenting to the application of the laws of Canada in all matters concerning the Website and this Privacy Policy.

Access To Personal Information
You have the right to access personal information in connection with the services that you have requested that are in the possession or control of Future Stars and to know how that personal information has been and is being used, and to whom it has been disclosed.

Future Stars reserves the right to refuse to comply with all or part of a request where we are required to or are permitted to refuse to do so by the provisions of Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act or other applicable legislation.

Applications must be in writing and be sent to our Privacy Officer either by mail or email at the addresses set out below. Applications should have sufficient detail that allows us to identify you and the information you are requesting.

We will assist you with your requests and will respond as accurately and completely as reasonably possible.

Protection of Personal Information
Future Stars makes reasonable efforts in accordance with industry standards to ensure that personal information that you have provided to us is protected against loss and unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying or similar risks.

This protection applies in relation to information stored in both electronic and hard copy form and will vary depending on the sensitivity of the information.

Access to personal information is restricted to selected employees, Future Stars representatives or third party service providers on a need-to-know basis. In addition, Future Stars employs generally accepted information security techniques, such as firewalls, encrypted files and access control procedures in order to protect personal information against unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modifying, disposal or similar risk. It is important that you understand, however, that no commerce solution, website, app, database or system is completely secure or “hacker proof,” and we cannot anticipate all potential misuse of data over the Internet. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and your use of our Website or Order Forms indicates that you are willing to assume this risk.

Retention of Personal Information
Future Stars retains personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the Purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws. Your consent to such Purpose(s) remains valid after termination of Future Stars’ relationship with you.

Changes To This Privacy Policy
Future Stars reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time without notice. The Privacy Policy distributed at any time or from-time-to time posted via its website at www.Future-stars-sp.com shall be deemed to be the Privacy Statement then in effect.

Future Stars is responsible for the Personal Information under its control, and we have designated a Privacy Officer who is responsible for our compliance with this Privacy Policy and with applicable laws. Other individuals within Future Stars may be delegated to act on behalf of the Privacy Officer and Future Stars shall use appropriate means to provide a comparable level of protection while information is being processed by a third party. Should you have any questions about the collection, use or disclosure by Future Stars of your personal information or the personal information of your players, staff, and other employees or attendees of your institutions, we ask that you discuss the matter further with our Privacy Officer.
