We also may use this information to better understand your needs and preferences and to recommend particular products and services that may meet your need.

"Personal Information":

“Personal information” is information about an identifiable individual and includes name, address or telephone number.

Collection and Use of your personal information

We collect and use your personal information only by lawful and fair means. The purposes for which we collect personal information will be limited to those related to our business and to those a reasonable person would consider appropriate. In particular, we will never sell, lease, or trade personal information to third parties without your express consent. However, some cases the purposes will be implied. For example, when you sign up to our newsletter, you implicitly consent to our use of your personal information for the purpose of delivering this service to you.

Furthermore, the Cask Days Festival is the recipient of a grant from the provincial government, which requires collection of anonymous, statistical / demographic information, to assist in better serving and understanding tourism in the Province of Ontario. By purchasing tickets to and / or attending the Cask Days festival, you are consenting to the collection and use of this anonymous information.


Consent for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information may be obtained orally, or in writing and may be expressly given or implied. In determining how we obtain your consent, we take into account the sensitivity of the personal information to be collected, used or disclosed. Where the information is not sensitive, your consent may be implied at the time of collection unless you inform us otherwise. For example, if you fill out a ballot for a contest, you imply consent to our use of your personal information to administer the contest. When you purchase a ticket to Cask Days, we will ask for your explicit consent to include you in any direct marketing activity we undertake concerning Cask Days and future festivals, news and events. If you explicitly consent, we will send you email communications, but you are free to opt-out at any time in accordance with the Canadian Anti-Spam Law. Further, as per the Canadian Anti-Spam Law, we will not share your email contact information with any third party source without your consent.

Withdrawal of Consent

You can withdraw your consent for the use of your personal information at any time by contacting us at the address or telephone number listed below or through the feedback form on our website, subject to legal restrictions and upon reasonable notice to us. However, not allowing us to use this information about you may mean that we may not be able to provide you with certain products and services. We will seek your consent at the time your personal information is collected. Where we want to use your personal information for a purpose not previously identified, we will seek your consent prior to such new use of your personal information.


We do not disclose your personal information to any third party to enable them to market their products and services to you without first obtaining your express consent.

We may transfer certain personal information to third parties solely for the purpose of administering, processing, or fulfilling an order or service you have requested on our behalf, such as mailing houses, contest administration, etc. We will insist that any such third parties maintain the confidentiality of the personal information we provide to them and implement appropriate safeguards to prevent its unauthorized disclosure.

Where you have given us your explicit consent to do so, we may provide non-sensitive personal information (such as name, address and other contact information) to our corporate sponsors and advertisers so that they might send you offers and information relating to those products and services that may be of interest to you. We will ensure that any such third party maintain the same high standards regarding the protection of your personal information as set out in this privacy policy and that their use of such information be limited only to the purposes which you have consented to.

We reserve the right to co-operate with local, provincial, national and international authorities in investigations of improper or unlawful activities and this may require the disclosure of personal information. We may also report to other organizations about improper or unlawful user activities on the Sites and this reporting may include disclosure of personal information relating to those individuals conducting such improper or unlawful activities.

Protection of Your Personal Information

We take all reasonable precautions to ensure that your personal information is kept from loss, unauthorized access, modification, or disclosure, and to limit access to your personal information to those employees who may need it for use in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 9 Gallon employs security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information we receive from you. Where applicable we use secure socket layer (SSL) technology to maintain the security of commerce transactions. We also encrypt your contact information and financial information as it travels over the Internet and we store your financial information on our servers in encrypted form. Your information may be transferred to and maintained in whole or in part on computer networks which may be located outside of the province, country or other governmental jurisdiction in which you reside, and may be stored on equipment or in facilities leased or licensed from third parties.

How long personal information is kept

We keep your personal information as long as is reasonably necessary or as may be required by law, whichever period is longer.

Access to your Personal Information

You may ask for access to any personal information we hold about you. We will respond to your request within 30 days. There is no cost for reasonable requests unless you require copies of records. We may not be able to provide you with access to your personal information where denial of access is required or permitted by law, the information cannot be separated from the records of others, cannot be disclosed for reasons of security or confidentiality, or is protected by legal privilege. If we deny your request for access to, or refuse a request to correct, information, we shall explain the reasons for the denial/refusal.
