Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN, “we”, “us” or “our”) is Canada’s largest rights management organization that represents the rights of millions of Canadian and international music creators and publishers and grants licences for the use of musical works in its repertoire. SOCAN is proud to play a leading role in supporting the long-term success of its many members, as well as the Canadian music industry.
An important part of SOCAN’s commitment to its members, licensees, employees, and visitors (“you” or “your”) is respect for your right to privacy.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
SOCAN may also place a cookie on your device when you visit the Website. A cookie is a small text file that our site may place on your computer as a tool to remember your preferences. If you have cookie notification turned on your device, you will be notified if SOCAN places a cookie on your device. Through third party affiliates, like Google Analytics, we implement cookies to collect information about the device you use to browse, the operating system, the inferred location of your IP address to identify your computer, your visit duration, pages visited etc. SOCAN will keep the information collected during your visit to the secure site to enable your use of the Website. Cookies may expire if you log out of the secure site or close your browser.
In addition, SOCAN and other third parties (such as ad networks and other advertising companies) may use interest-based advertising cookies and other tracking technologies (such as pixel tags). These cookies can be used to measure whether an advertising campaign is relevant to you or a specific group. They can also be used to increase the relevance of the advertising and other material provided on the Website or those of third parties by coordinating this with your web browsing behavior and interests. SOCAN and third parties may collect information about your activity across your different devices on the Website and third-party websites (such as web pages you visit and your interaction with our advertising and other communications) and use this information to make predictions about your preferences and deliver advertising that is more relevant to you across the Internet. In addition, these cookies can be used to limit the number of times that an advertisement is shown.
There are a number of ways to manage or disable cookies. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new browser cookie, and how to disable existing browser cookies. You can also use your mobile device’s settings to manage the available privacy options. However, if you block cookies, you may lose full use of the Website.

Please note that even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a third party, these tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will not be targeted based on behavioural information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.
