Privacy Policy

The Barrie Arts and Culture Council (BACC) is committed to protecting the privacy of our users. We want to provide a safe, secure user experience. We will use our best efforts to ensure that the information you submit to us remains private, and it is used only for the purposes described below.

Information About

In general, we gather information about all of our users collectively, such as what areas users visit most frequently and what services users access the most. We only use such data anonymously and in the aggregate. This information helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users, and how we can continually create a better overall experience for you. We may share this information with our partners, but only in the aggregate, so that they, too, may understand how visitors use our site for the purpose of creating a better overall experience for registry users. We will also use the information gathered to further understand the needs of artists in Barrie. This data will only be viewed by the BACC.

If you are an Artist who wishes to be identified in the Network, we will collect your name and contact information and accept images or descriptions of your Worksamples for display on our website. By submitting your contact information and Worksamples, you agree that we may display this information on our website, and you understand that we can accept no responsibility for any use of your material or contact information made by other users of the site. Artists may change or update information by logging in and editing their own info or if they wish to be removed from the Network, they can contact us at info@barriearts.ca. If we feel the profiles in anyway are being mis-used or information is not appropriate or erroneous, we will contact the artist and/or Organization and let them know they have 24hrs to correct any miss-imformation or be deleted from the Network.
