This website is administered by Adult Lifestyle Communities in Markham, Ontario, Canada (“ALC”). This Privacy Policy discloses the Personal Information handling practices for ALC websites, including what type of Personal Information is gathered and tracked, how the Personal Information is used and with whom the Personal Information is shared.

By submitting Personal Information to ALC through this website, you expressly agree to the collection, use, and transfer of your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, the Terms of Use, and as permitted or required by applicable laws. If you refuse or withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide you, or continue to provide you, with certain services or information which may be of value to you.

If you provide us with the Personal Information of another individual, you represent that you have all necessary authority and/or have obtained all necessary consents from such individual to enable us to collect, use, and disclose such Personal Information for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy. ALC reserves the right to change these terms and conditions at any time without prior notice to you.

When you visit our website, you are accessing it anonymously. ALC does not acquire your email address or other Personal Information about you unless you choose to provide it to us. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means information about an identifiable as defined from time to time in applicable privacy laws. This may include but is not limited to: name, address, email address, telephone number, postal code, gender, birthday, credit card information, and social insurance number.

If you choose to provide Personal Information directly to ALC, we will maintain such Personal Information in confidence. We will not collect, use, or disclose your Personal Information other than in accordance with this Privacy Policy, the Terms of Use, and as permitted or required by applicable laws. However, please note that ALC shall not treat as confidential and shall not have any duty to protect any Personal Information that is posted or uploaded to the ALC website and available for general viewing. Please do not submit patient health information through this website.

ALC limits the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information, both in the amount and type of Personal Information, to that which is necessary in order to fulfill the purposes identified in this Privacy Policy. In general, ALC collects, uses, and discloses Personal Information for the purposes of furthering our business and those of our affiliates, and their respective successors and assigns, as set forth in this Privacy Policy and as permitted or required by applicable laws.

Personal Information may be collected by ALC when website visitors complete one of our online forms (examples include newsletter subscriptions or contact forms). The following list includes ways we generally collect Personal Information from our website visitors and the types of Personal Information generally collected:

You may find numerous forms throughout our site to help you evaluate or engage our services and ask questions. Required Personal Information varies depending on the form and at most includes full name and email address. The provision of this Personal Information is mandatory in order to receive a response from ALC. The provision of the remaining Personal Information requested on the registration form is optional. The same is true for any online newsletters or other types of regular electronic updates we may offer to website visitors.

ALC only collects user-provided Personal Information. For example, you may want to give us your name and contact information to communicate with you, to provide you with a service, or to conduct business with us if you are a supplier or a business partner. You may share a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at ALC for which you wish to be considered. If you use the procedures described in this Privacy Policy to tell us that you do not want us to use your Personal Information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your request, we will respect your wishes.

If you provide a false name or email, you may not receive a response to your inquiry or your request may not be processed. However, any Personal Information you provide in other fields may be used to help solve issues that exist. For example, if you have Personal Information that you would like to relay to someone at ALC but do not accurately identify yourself, you may include the Personal Information in the comments section of the form. That Personal Information will be sent to the appropriate person who can help resolve the issue regardless of whether or not we are able to send a response to you. The same is true for anyone who enters an email address, phone number, or other form of contact information incorrectly. We are not responsible for a failure to respond to someone who has submitted inaccurate or invalid contact information.

From time to time, we may also collect Personal Information that pertains to you indirectly through other sources, such as list vendors. When we do so, we ask the vendors to confirm that the Personal Information was legally acquired by the third-party and that we have the right to obtain it from them and use it.

The Personal Information that we collect, either directly or indirectly, may be combined to help us improve its overall accuracy and completeness and to help us better tailor our interactions with you.

We may also collect Personal Information relating to your use of our websites through the use of various technologies. For example, when you visit our websites, we may log certain Personal Information that your browser sends us, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring website addresses. We may also collect Personal Information about the pages you view within our sites and other actions you take while visiting us. In addition, we may also use such technologies to determine whether you’ve opened an email or clicked on a link contained in an email. Collecting Personal Information about how you use our websites helps us personalize your future experiences on our websites, as well as tailor our interactions with you.

One technology we use to collect Personal Information is called “cookies”. A cookie is a piece of data that a website sends to your browser. The data is stored on your computer as a tag that identifies your computer. Cookies are used mainly to measure website usage and effectiveness and to allow for ease of navigation or use. As such, they are not associated with any Personal Information.

Cookies are also used at times to personalize a known visitor’s experience to a website by being associated with profile information or user preferences. As described below, you can adjust your browser settings in most instances to turn off cookies or to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it or not. Since cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our websites’ features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

If you choose to use the “Send to a Friend” function to share website information with a friend or colleague, we will ask for their name and email address. We will automatically send a one-time email sharing the page you indicated, but will not use that Personal Information for other purposes.

The following paragraphs describe the general purposes for which ALC uses and discloses your Personal Information:


If you request something from ALC, for example, information about a community, a callback, or specific marketing materials, we may use the Personal Information you provide to fulfill your request. To help us do this, we may share Personal Information with others, for instance, a specific ALC community or regional staff member who can best handle the request. In connection with a transaction, we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.


We may use Personal Information we collect about you to provide you with a personalized experience on our websites, such as providing you with content that may interest you and making navigation on our sites easier.


We may use your Personal Information to notify you of events, news, or upcoming developments. We also may provide “Live Chat” sessions to assist you while you’re navigating through our sites; we may use Personal Information you provide via these sessions in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


The Personal Information you provide to ALC as well as the Personal Information we have collected about you indirectly, may be used by ALC for ALC’s marketing purposes. We may provide the Personal Information to third parties who may assist ALC in contacting you with special offers or information that we believe may be of interest to you about ALC’s services, programs, or events. You may at any time choose not to receive marketing materials from us by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each email you may receive, by indicating that you wish to unsubscribe when we call you, or by contacting us directly (please refer to “Opt-Out Procedures” below).


In connection with a job application or inquiry, whether advertised on an ALC website or otherwise, you may provide us with Personal Information about yourself, such as a résumé. We may use this Personal Information to address your inquiry or consider you for employment purposes. Unless you tell us not to do so, we may keep the Personal Information for future consideration.

ALC is strongly opposed to spam. We will only send email to users that have explicitly requested to receive an email from us, such as “opt-in subscribers” to ALC online newsletters or users who complete a contact form.

You can always choose not to provide Personal Information, although it might be needed to submit an inquiry or place a request. If you place a request and do not provide the necessary Personal Information to contact you, your request may not be fulfilled.

When we collect Personal Information from you, you may tell us that you do not want it used for further marketing contact by using the Opt-Out Procedures below.

You may also turn off cookies in your browser. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some features of this website, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Any Personal Information or other content you post or divulge, such as pictures, information, opinions or any other type of Personal Information that you make available to other participants on these social platforms is deemed non-confidential, public information and is not subject to this Privacy Policy. Rather, such content may be subject to the Terms of Use of this website and/or those social platforms, and any additional guidelines and privacy information provided in relation to their use. Please refer to applicable terms and conditions. You should be aware that content you post on any such social computing platforms may be made broadly available to others inside and outside ALC.
