Cheer District's operations include activities related to providing an online forum for cheerleaders and related professionals to train, educate, chat, and connect. As such, Cheer District may also collect personal information from individuals participating in and / or impacted by these activities. For example, we may carry out interviews (that may potentially be uploaded onto our Mobile App) and collect user-generated content from users of our Mobile App.

As a general rule, Cheer District collects personal information directly from you. In most circumstances where the personal information that we collect about you is held by a third party, we will obtain your permission before we seek out this information from such sources (such permission may be given directly by you or implied from your actions).

From time to time, we may utilize the services of third parties and may also receive personal information collected by those third parties in the course of the performance of their services for us or otherwise. Where this is the case, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that such third parties have represented to us that they have the right to disclose your personal information to us.

Where permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, we may collect information about you without your knowledge or consent.

We may collect information related to your visit to our Mobile App, including the IP address and domain name used to access our Mobile App and Services, the type and version of your browser, the Mobile App you came from to access our Mobile App and Services, the page you entered and exited at, any Mobile App page within our Mobile App or Services that is viewed by that IP address and what country you are from.

We may place a "cookie" on the hard drive of your mobile device to track your visit. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your hard drive through your web browser that can be read by the Mobile App that placed the cookie on your hard drive. The cookie acts as an identification card and allows our Mobile App to identify you and to record your passwords and preferences. The cookie allows us to track your visit to the Mobile App so that we can better understand your use of our Mobile App so that we can customize and tailor the Mobile App to better meet your needs. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. However, on most web browsers you may change this setting to have your web browser either: (i) notify you prior to a Mobile App placing a cookie on your hard drive so that you can decide whether or not to accept the cookie; or (ii) automatically prevent the placing of a cookie on your hard drive. It should be noted that if cookies are not accepted, you may not be able to access a number of web pages found on the Mobile App.

Third Party Links and Data Collection

Our Mobile App may contain links to or embedded frames of other Mobile Apps or Websites that may be subject to less stringent privacy standards. For example, our online store is hosted by a third party, Shopify, and any transaction information directly related to purchases or behavior within the online store will be governed by its privacy policy, available here:  https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy

If you click on a link to such a third party Mobile App or Website, a third party may also place a cookie on your hard drive. We cannot assume any responsibility for the privacy practices, policies or actions of the third parties that operate these Mobile Apps or Websites. Cheer District is not responsible for how such third parties collect, use or disclose your personal information. You should review the privacy policies of these Mobile Apps or Websites before providing them with personal information.

Interpretation of this Privacy Policy

Any interpretation associated with this Privacy Policy will be made by our Privacy Officer. This Privacy Policy includes examples but is not intended to be restricted in its application to such examples; therefore where the word "including" is used, it shall mean "including without limitation".

This Privacy Policy does not create or confer upon any individual any rights, or impose upon Cheer District any rights or obligations outside of, or in addition to, any rights or obligations imposed by Canada's federal and provincial privacy laws, or United States laws, as applicable.

Do Not Track Policy

Our Mobile App and Services do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that We or our analytics providers or other third parties with which we are working collect information about your online activity both during and after your use of the Mobile App and Services.
