Privacy Policy

Where Can I Watch (hereafter abbreviated "WCIW") is a service currently operated as a sole proprietorship by Joshua Gorner, an individual residing in Ontario, Canada (hereafter "we", "us", or the "Publisher"). This privacy policy explains how the Publisher uses personal data we collect from you when you use WCIW. By accessing WCIW, you consent to this privacy policy.

This website is published from Canada and is only intended for use by Canadian residents.

This privacy policy was last updated on November 25, 2020. We reserve the right to update this policy without notice and thus encourage you to review this page, and in particular the "Significant revisions" section, regularly.

What data do we collect?

When you access WCIW, our third-party service providers, including Google Analytics, collect non-personally-identifying information that is typically made available by web browsers and servers, such as external IP addresses, the browser used, any referring site, and the dates and times  of each visit. This information may be obtained in part using browser cookies, as described below. We strongly encourage you to review this page that describes how Google Analytics uses information from partner sites such as WCIW.

If you choose to make a financial contribution to WCIW, such as through our page on Buy Me a Coffee, we can access some of the information that Buy Me a Coffee and its payment processor partners (namely, PayPal and Stripe) collect, which may include personally-identifiable information including your name and/or email address, your postal code, and partially-redacted payment information (such as the last four digits of a payment card number). Buy Me a Coffee, PayPal, and Stripe all have separate privacy policies that we encourage you to review before using their services to make a donation to WCIW.

What do we use your information for?

We, and our service providers, collect and use this information in order to:

  1. understand how our services are used, such as which pages are most popular, when it's being accessed, and how users are being referred to WCIW; and
  2. process payments when you choose to make a financial contribution to WCIW.

How do we store and protect your information?

We use a variety of security measures and best practices, including multi-factor authentication on all service provider accounts on which it is supported, to ensure that any personal information that you provide, directly or indirectly, remains safe and is only accessible by the Proprietor (or, in limited circumstances, by our service providers).

We review all of our service providers on a regular basis to ensure they are also maintaining a high level of security, and are keeping confidential any information that our users have not explicitly chosen to share publicly (e.g., supporter names on our Buy Me a Coffee page).

Do we share any of your information with outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to any outside parties, except to the extent that such information is handled by our service providers as discussed above, or as may be required to conduct our business (i.e., accounting or legal purposes).

We may also release information if we reasonably believe such release is necessary in order to comply with the law, or to protect our (or others') rights, property or safety.

Finally, in the event that the WCIW service is transferred by the Proprietor to a different entity, ownership of (or access to) that information will also be transferred to the new owner.

Do we use cookies?

Yes. HTTP cookies are small text files placed on your computer to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behaviour information. When you visit WCIW, we, and our service providers, may collect information from you automatically through cookies.

What types of cookies do we use, and for what purposes?

Functional: Like many websites, WCIW uses Google Analytics to help measure our traffic. Google Analytics sets cookies (_ga, _gid, and _gat) to help distinguish between visitors and identify how they use our website. You can find out about Google Analytics' use of cookies here and here. These are "functional" cookies and blocking them will not prevent you from access this website.

Strictly necessary: Cloudflare (one of the intermediate hosting providers used by WCIW's main hosting provider, Ghost) sets what it considers "strictly necessary" cookies (_cflb and _cfduid) for traffic management and protection purposes. Blocking these cookies may make it more difficult for you to access WCIW. You can find out more about these cookies here.

How do I manage cookies?

If you do not want to accept cookies, you can set your browser to block them (instructions for: Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari), however as discussed above these may have an impact on your ability to access WCIW.

How do I contact you?

If you have questions above this privacy policy or the data we hold on you, please email us at hello@wherecaniwatch.ca.

This privacy policy is adapted in part from the Proton Technologies template posted here.
