Personal Information and Purpose of Collection

The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) governs privacy of information.  Personal information is the information that relates to you as an identifiable individual.  Personal information does not include business information (e.g., an individual’s business address and telephone number).

Mariposa School of Skating will only collect personal information for purposes that include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Membership and registration for programs, activities, and events. 
  • Purchasing equipment and other products.
  • Receiving communications from Mariposa School of Skating regarding programs, events, activities, and fundraising.
  • Award nominations, biographies, published articles and media relations.
  • Promotional materials (e.g., photographs, videos, posters, displays).

When requesting information from you to fulfill the purposes, we will inform you of the reason for the collection and that providing such information is deemed consent to its collection, use and disclosure. We will endeavor to provide you with as much detail as possible so that you are making a meaningful and informed decision. If any new or additional purposes are identified, we will contact you for your consent.

Consent, Collection, Use, Disclosure and Retention

Mariposa School of Skating  will collect personal information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.  We only request personal information reasonably necessary to carry out the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. By voluntarily providing your personal information, you are deemed to consent to our use of the information for the purposes described herein. If you choose not to provide requested personal information, or if you choose at any time to withdraw your consent to the use of your personal information for any purpose, we will do our best to accommodate your choice without diminishing the services we provide to you. However, depending on the personal information withheld or withdrawn, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide you with all or any of our services. We will inform you of the consequences of withholding or withdrawing information.

We will never intentionally disclose any personal information about you as an individual (such as, for example, your full name, street address, telephone number, credit card number or e-mail address) to any third party without having received your permission.

Mariposa School of Skating does not sell, exchange, rent or lease its membership or registration lists to third parties without your prior express consent.  Mariposa School of Skating may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you.  In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail address, name, street address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.  Mariposa School of Skating may, however, share data with trusted partners to help us perform a statistical analysis.  In such a case, we request that the partner limit the use of your personal information to the provision of the services to Mariposa School of Skating, and we request that they maintain the confidentiality of your personal information.

Mariposa School of Skating may share aggregate statistical information with our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties, but we will not share any personal information.  For example, we may use a third-party advertising company to serve advertisements when you visit our website.  We may share demographic and preference information with this company to allow them to display appropriate advertisements for you.

We have the following exceptions regarding the disclosure of your personal information: we will disclose your personal information, without notice, (a) to comply with any valid legal inquiry, order or process served on Mariposa School of Skating; (b) to protect and defend the rights or property of Mariposa School of Skating; and, (c) to protect the personal safety of users of Mariposa School of Skating, or the public.  We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, to a successor corporate entity in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, sale of assets or corporate division or other fundamental corporate change.

Personal information will be retained for certain periods of time in accordance with the following:

  1. Membership and program registration data and athlete information will be retained indefinitely for the sake of historical record and tracking purposes.
  2. Registration data for programs, clinics, camps, and competitions may be retained indefinitely after the event for record purposes.
  3. Credit card information will be destroyed immediately upon completion of a financial transaction when provided verbally.  Credit card information is saved by a third party company when purchasing memberships and passes in Punchpass.  Mariposa School of Skating reserves the right to push payments on memberships which have been agreed upon when purchased in Punchpass.  For example, a monthly member payment has failed, we may push the payment to complete the transaction at a later date.  Mariposa School of Skating will not charge push payments on any transaction which was not agreed upon at the time of purchase.
  4. As otherwise may be stipulated in federal or provincial legislation.


Electronic records are subject to limited access by authorized personnel who must use passwords and other security measures.  Print records containing personal information are subject to physical protection such as locked rooms or cabinets, accessible only to authorized personnel.

I have been bringing skaters to the Mariposa Seminar for 18 years. Every year is a fabulous experience for both my skaters as well as myself. It never ceases to amaze me how professional everyone is and how willing this team of coaches is to share information to both the skaters as well as the coaches at the seminar.
