Privacy Policy

Taken Season Four Inc. (“Company”) is concerned about safeguarding your privacy. Company’s Privacy Policy is based upon the principles set out in the Canadian Personal Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and complies with PIPEDA and all other applicable Federal and Provincial (Manitoba) legislation.

This Privacy Policy applies to the “TAKEN” mobile application (the “Mobile App”).

Knowledge Keeper Album. The Knowledge Keeper section of the Mobile App encourages you to create an Album of each of their loved ones. The user can enter Name, Age, Gender, Photos, Friends and Family, Hangouts, City, Address, Description (i.e. appearance or distinguishing features), Health information, Medications and Other Notes. Should a loved one then go missing, you can file a comprehensive police report using the information contained in the Album. This information resides on your mobile device and is not uploaded, accessed by Company, or shared with anyone in any way, unless and until you decide to access the Album information if your loved one goes missing. The Knowledge Keeper section of the Mobile App also has a Missing Persons Action Plan, educational videos, and a segment on self care and healing.

e-Ceremony. The Mobile App includes the ability for a user to honor by “e-smudge” a missing or murdered Indigenous woman selected from the Tribute Wall/Pearce Database. Your name is not collected by the Mobile App or Company, however you may elect to include a post on the Company’s Facebook page, or may tweet that they have done so, and if you so elect you understand that your identity will likely become known to the public.

You are responsible for the security of your own mobile device. It is highly recommended that you password protect your mobile device and also do periodic backups (the Mobile App includes the facility to access the standard iOS and Android backup features – refer to the Access And Use Agreement); Company is not responsible for a breach of privacy resulting from unauthorized access to your mobile device, nor for any other failure of your mobile device.

Even though Company does not collect or access your personally identifiable information or the personally identifiable information of your loved ones, Company has established the following Privacy Policy in the event that personally identifiable information is collected in the future.

Company’s Privacy Policy is based upon the following ten basic principles:

Principle 1: Accountability

Personally identifiable information may include your or your loved one’s name, age, address and email address.

Company is responsible for personally identifiable information under its control. If you wish to contact the individual responsible for the organization’s compliance with the following principles and information, he/she can be reached at – please mark “Takentheseries Privacy Policy” in the subject line.

The Mobile App provides links to other third party websites. These websites operate independently from the Mobile App and therefore any personally identifiable information you give to these other websites is not controlled by us or our Privacy Policy.

Principle 2: Identifying Purpose

The purposes for which personally identifiable information is collected shall be identified on the Mobile App at or before the time the information is collected. Personally identifiable information collected from you for one purpose will not be used for any other purpose without your prior consent.

We do not sell or otherwise share personally identifiable information without your prior approval; if applicable we will ask for your approval at the place on the Mobile App where we collect the information. There will be a prominently displayed method to indicate to us that you do or do not want to receive promotional and/or marketing information about products, services and offerings. Check the appropriate box and your information may be used as described on the Mobile App: leave it blank, and we consider it an opt-out. Either way, it is always your choice.

As a subscriber to receive promotional/marketing or other additional information, each electronic communication you receive from us will contain an “unsubscribe” link, and if you elect to unsubscribe you will be promptly removed from our mailing list.

Principle 3: Consent

Your knowledge and consent will be required for the collection, use, or disclosure of your or your loved one’s personally identifiable information. By providing personally identifiable information, you accept the privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy.

A customer information database is customarily considered a business asset, Company and its related companies shall have the right to transfer this database in a merger, sale, or in an action for bankruptcy, but in all events the use of the database will be subject to this Privacy Policy by any acquiring or merged company.

We may disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Mobile App; to enforce or apply this Privacy Policy, our Mobile App Terms of Use or other agreements; or to protect the rights, property or safety of the Mobile App, its users or others.

Principle 4: Limiting Collection

The collection of personally identifiable information shall be limited to that which is necessary for the purpose identified by the Mobile App. Information shall be collected by fair and lawful means.

Certain non-personally identifiable information may be recorded by our web-servers and hosts, including type of browser being used, its operating system, and domain name, which provide us with aggregate statistics, including number of users to the Mobile App, average length of visit to the Mobile App, etc.

Principle 5: Limiting Use, Disclosure And Information
