Association of Canadian Publishers Online Privacy Statement

The policy set forth below is applicable to the Association of Canadian Publishers site and all other domains registered under the Association (ACP).

If you have any questions about this privacy policy, about the information we gather, or about the operation of our websites, please contact us.

Privacy Policy

As part of our operations, we gather certain types of information about our members, the Canadian book publishing community, and other website visitors. We would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with it, and how to change, request, or delete the information.

Information Collected by Our Sites

We collect two types of personally identifiable information from users: individual information (such as names, company or affiliation, and email addresses); and aggregated data (such as information about website traffic patterns).

Individual Information

Professional contact information is collected when you provide it to our websites or through forms created by ACP and hosted externally on third-party sites, for example in registering for electronic newsletters, our member portal, or other membership services, answering surveys, registering for events, and sending email to ACP. By using our websites and/or subscribing to our mailing lists, your behaviour may be tracked through the use of cookies or in relation to your registered ACP account.

Aggregated Information

Aggregated information includes such information as which pages visitors access on our websites and information volunteered anonymously through surveys and other forms. Reports on user behaviour, e.g. “Top Searches,” are generated from aggregate user traffic and may be posted on our websites, either publicly or visible to users of the service in question.

Use of Information Collected by ACP

Our websites use both the individual and aggregated information collected for multiple purposes. The information is used to improve the content of our online resources, to monitor the efficacy of our communications and services, to answer questions that will direct ACP initiatives, and to gather information about what our members and the Canadian publishing industry want to know.


Contact information collected by our websites is used only for ACP purposes. As Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act enacted 1 January 2004 dictates, we will not share your information without your consent.


All the information we collect is stored on ACP servers or with trusted external server companies and third-party services like Mailchimp, SurveyMonkey, and Google Forms.

Changing, Requesting, or Deleting Information

If you have subscribed to any mailing lists hosted by ACP and do not want to receive such email in the future, please click the “unsubscribe” link in the last email you received. You can also email to cancel any subscriptions, to request a copy of the information we have on file for you, or to request that we delete it. We will respond within 10 business days and will address each request on a case-by-case basis to the best of our ability.

Links to Other Sites

It is important to note that this site contains links to other sites, and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as our site.

Use of this site signifies your agreement to the terms of use and privacy policy. We reserve the right to change this policy at any time by posting a revised privacy policy.
