Privacy Policy


This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) sets out the policy of the Toronto Port Authority (“TPA”) regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information and security of personal information in connection with the Billy Bishop Application and any related websites (collectively, the “App”).

By using the App you agree that you have read and understand this Privacy Policy and consent to the collection, use, storage and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to these provisions, do not access or use the App.

TPA reserves the right to amend or revise this Privacy Policy from time to time in any way, and each time you access the App you are bound by the Privacy Policy, accessible at www.billyytz.com/privacy. By continuing to use the App you are indicating your renewed agreement with the provisions of this Privacy Policy, as amended or revised.


TPA has designated a Privacy Compliance Officer to handle privacy matters and inquiries regarding personal information.

Personal Information

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, including information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you, alone or in combination with other available information. This includes, but is not limited to, information that you provide through the App. Personal information includes name, physical and e-mail address, passwords, postal code, mobile phone number, IP address, device ID, mobile country code, integrated circuit card identifier, gender, age, personal information you input into the App, information about your use of the App, such as your searches, the information you access using the App, the date and time you use the App, your geographic location, your travel itineraries and reservations, and your electronic messages and notifications communicated or accessed through the App. It may be possible for you to disable the provision of some personal information through settings on your mobile device.

Purposes of Collection, Use, Storage and Disclosure of Personal Information

TPA collects, uses, stores and discloses personal information of users of the App as necessary for the operation of the App, and to provide services to those users. These purposes include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Provision of services and products requested by you;
  • Responding to queries or requests submitted by you;
  • Administering or otherwise carrying out our obligations in relation to any agreement you have with us;
  • We may also analyze the personal information provided to us to offer you additional services or products; You may, at any time, advise us that you do not wish to receive such offers from TPA by contacting us using the contact information below;
  • Billing for services and products provided to you for which there is a charge;
  • Compiling statistics for analytical and marketing purposes; and
  • As otherwise required or permitted by applicable law.

For example, certain services provided by the App may require use or disclosure of your mobile device’s location, your mobile phone number or a list of the services to which you have subscribed. In addition, this information may be personalized and augmented using information that you input into your mobile device or the App. This personal information will be used, among other things, to provide you with information about your travel itineraries and reservations; provide guidance for navigating airports and cities; provide targeted information, advertisements and other communications to you on nearby digital displays as well as e-mails and text messages; and to allow you to connect, download and purchase content and services made available by those means. TPA will first obtain your express consent before collecting, using or disclosing this location or other information. You may review and change your preferences in this regard at any time. However, use or disclosure of this information may be necessary to provide some of the App’s services.

Transfers of Personal Information

TPA will transfer personal information only if consent is given by the relevant individual or as follows:

1. to businesses that assist TPA in operating TPA or in providing services to TPA’s clients and customers;
2. if TPA is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, personal information may be disclosed and transferred to a third party in connection with due diligence for, and completion of, the transaction;
3. to meet legal obligations such as tax and regulatory reporting; or
4. when otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, such as in response to a subpoena or other legal process.

Protecting Confidential Information, Including Personal Information

TPA protects confidential information of all types, including personal information, with organizational, physical, mechanical and electronic safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, including encryption and secure server technology where appropriate.

Your personal information may be transferred outside of Canada for processing and storage. We or our service providers may store personal information on servers located in other jurisdictions, including the United States. Please note that privacy laws in such jurisdictions differ from Canadian privacy laws and that in some jurisdictions your personal information may be accessed by law enforcement authorities or the courts in such jurisdictions. You may obtain information and address questions about the privacy policies and practices relating to handling of your personal information outside of Canada by contacting our Privacy Compliance Officer using the contact information below.

Your personal information will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes referred to in this Privacy Policy.

TPA, and third parties with whom we partner, may use cookies, web beacons/pixel tags, log files, local shared objects, flash cookies, barcodes, near field communication, WiFi location information and other technologies to collect certain information about users of the App. For example, through these means, we may collect information about your mobile device type, browser, operating system, viewed webpages, links that are clicked, IP address, sites visited before coming to our website, e-mails we send that you open, forward or click through to our website. We may also track promotion redemptions that are downloaded from third party websites, in connection with the App. Collecting this information and linking it with your personal information, helps us to best tailor the App, to help identify products, features, advertisements and offers that may be of particular interest to you, and to serve more targeted advertisements to you. The technology may also allow other service providers to receive information related to our online advertising. It may be possible for you to disable some cookies and other technologies through settings on your device or browser.
