Your privacy is important to us. We comply with the privacy laws and regulations of Canada, including the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). We make no representation that this Site is governed by the laws of other nations, or that the Site or any part thereof is appropriate or available for use in other jurisdictions. Individuals who choose to access the Site do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations. By using this Site, visitors from outside of Canada acknowledge that this Site is subject to Canadian laws and regulations and waive any claims that may arise under their own national laws.

I. Information We Collect
We gather two basic types of information through the Site: “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” (or “Non-PII”) and “Personally Identifiable Information” (or “PII”). Non-PII is aggregated information, demographic information, Internet protocol addresses (IP addresses) and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity. PII is information that identifies or can identify you as an individual (such as residential address, telephone number, or billing information).
A. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information – When you visit and interact with the Site, Beyond Exhibitions Inc and third parties with whom we have contracted to provide services to us may collect Non-PII (for example, a catalog of the Site pages you visit). Non-PII is anonymous and does not identify you personally. Non-PII is generally collected through the Site from four different sources: IP addresses and web logs; cookies; pixel tags and other similar technologies; and other Non-PII that you voluntarily provide (as explained below).
IP Addresses and Web Logs – This Site’s web servers automatically collect the IP addresses and log files of visitors. Your IP address is an identifying number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Site, along with the time(s) of your visit(s) and the page(s) that you visited. This information is collected in an aggregate form only and does not contain any PII. We use your IP address, and the IP addresses of all users, for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose problems with the Site’s servers, and administering the Site. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites.
Pixel Tags – Exhibition Adventure Inc, our affiliates and our service providers may also use so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “Pixel Tags”) in connection with some Site pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, compile aggregate statistics about Site usage and response rates. A Pixel Tag is an electronic image, often a single pixel (1×1), that is ordinarily not visible to Site visitors and may be associated with cookies on the visitors’ hard drives. Pixel Tags do not contain any PII and allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when an email has been opened.
Information You Voluntarily Provide – We may also collect certain information (e.g., your geographic location, your genre preferences etc.) when you voluntarily provide such information to us. When such information is not combined with any PII, such information is considered to be Non-PII, as it does not personally identify you or any other user. Additionally, we may aggregate PII in a manner such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, for example, by using PII to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code. Such aggregate information is considered Non-PII for purposes of this Policy.
B. Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information – You may use many features of this Site without providing any PII. However, in order to take advantage of particular opportunities made available through the Site (for example, to access additional services provided by this Site such as concert updates, chat room forums and/or personalized content, contests or promotions) we may require that you furnish PII to us such as: your name, postal address, telephone number, fax number, email address, age, gender, credit card number or other payment account number, and health-related information (for example, accessibility requests). Please keep in mind that you may also be providing PII when you submit comments through forums, message boards or news groups, or third party social media, although we do not collect or use PII from these sources. We collect PII from you through the Site only when you voluntarily provide it. When you provide PII, the information may be sent to and stored on servers located in the United States of America. Such information will be stored in accordance with the laws and regulations of the United States of America. At all times we will endeavor to ensure that the PII of Canadian users is protected in accordance with the laws and regulations of Canada. From time to time PII may also be stored on servers located in Canada.
II. How Information We Collect Is Used (Non-PII and PII)
A. Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information – Because Non-PII does not personally identify you, we may use such information for any purpose. For example, we may use Non-PII to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site and pages viewed as well as to diagnose problems with our servers and to administer the Site. We may then use this information to analyze and improve the features and functionality of this Site. We may use non-PII information about you and other Site visitors on an aggregate basis to sell and deliver advertising, promotions and content that we believe will be of interest to you.
In addition, we reserve the right to share such Non-PII, which does not personally identify you, with third parties, for any purpose. For example, we may share information with advertisers or other third parties that are not part of Beyond Exhibitions Inc on an aggregate or other basis that does not disclose any of your PII.
In some instances, we may combine Non-PII with PII (such as embedding email addresses in cookies). If we do combine any Non-PII with PII, the combined information will be treated as PII as long as it is so combined. This “combined” PII is not shared with third parties, except as described in this Policy.
B. Personally Identifiable Information

To do so, any PII you provide in connection with sending such other party the message, such as your name and your email address or Instant Messenger screen name, will, of course, be disclosed to such other party. While, due to technical restrictions, the recipient’s email address or Instant Messenger screen names may be retained in our log files, we do not knowingly share it with third parties and we do not use this PII for any purpose except to send this message (unless the recipient has already consented to such use of his/her PII).

IV. Collection of Information By Third Parties
Third Party Advertising – The ads appearing on this Site are delivered to you by third-party advertisers.

V. Opt-In Policy
Beyond Exhibitions Inc Communications – When you supply Beyond Exhibitions Inc with PII you will be asked to indicate whether you are interested in receiving information from us about special offers in connection with the Site, BE Affiliates, vendors or advertisers. If you choose to opt-in to receive such communications, we may, from time to time, send you marketing communications. All such communications shall comply with Canadian law and without limitation will include an “opt-out” option link. If at any time you change your mind and no longer wish to receive marketing communications from us, you may opt-out of such marketing communications by using the link provided in our newsletters or commercial email messages to opt-out of receiving further marketing communications from us. If you do submit a request to opt-out, we will implement this change in a reasonable time frame. Please be aware that your requested change will not be effective until we implement such change, and such requests will be implemented only in connection with your Site profile. Opt-out requests through Beyond Exhibitions Inc communications will not impact any preferences you may have made to any other site controlled, owned or operated by Beyond Exhibitions Inc or its affiliates.
Affiliate and Third Party Communications – From time-to-time in Beyond Exhibition Inc.’s discretion, you may be provided with the opportunity to opt-in to receive offers directly from Beyond Exhibitions Inc, BE Affiliates and/or from third parties. If you do choose to accept any such offer(s) any PII provided to Beyond Exhibitions Inc for such purposes may be shared with the applicable third parties / BE Affiliates, to allow them to provide you with such offers and communications. If you change your mind and would prefer that we no longer share your PII with BE Affiliates and/or with third parties for their marketing purposes, you may opt-out of such future sharing at any time by using the “opt-out” link provided in all such marketing materials.
Effects Of Opting Out — By opting-in you have allowed Beyond Exhibitions Inc to share PII with BE Affiliates for their marketing purposes and/or allowing Beyond Exhibitions Inc to share PII with third-party companies for their marketing purposes. Please note that if you subsequently opt-out (i) we will not be able to remove your PII from the databases of affiliates or third parties with which we have already shared your PII (i.e., to which we have already provided your PII as of the date that we implement your opt-out request), therefore you must contact such affiliates or third parties directly in order to opt-out of further marketing communications made directly from them or utilize the opt-out mechanisms set forth in their respective privacy policies or marketing messages; and (ii) you may still be presented new offers from Beyond Exhibitions Inc and/or BE Affiliates or third parties while you are within the Site, including offers from those third parties which you have opted-out of receiving direct offers; but in connection with each new offer within the Site you will have the right not to accept such offers. In the event you receive an offer from a third party through our Site, but choose not to accept it, your PII will not be shared.
