The following terms and conditions form a binding agreement (“Agreement”) between you and Toronto International Film Festival Inc. (“TIFF”).

The Toronto International Film Festival Inc. employs a Secure Server using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption for the secure exchange of data between the patron and our system. The system supports both 40bit, 56bit and 128bit SSL encryption on virtually all browsers.
The website transactions are secured using a Thawte SCG Digital Certificate. This ensures that all information you send to us via the World Wide Web will be encrypted. If any other Internet user intercepts the communication he/she should only be able to see it in an encrypted (garbled) form. Certificate technology allows us to decrypt the information, and view it in plain text form. For more information on SSL digital certificates for web servers please click here. The SGC SuperCert is Thawte's strongest encryption certificate.
TIFF’s transaction system provides many other elements of security and risk management including protections that reduce the risk of fraudulent credit card number generators, redundant accidental transactions, and more.
TIFF’s web server resides behind a dedicated Firewall in a separate secure network. This protects and isolates TIFF’s web server.
No credit card information is maintained on TIFF’s web servers.
Although this website uses encryption technology and other means of security, there is no guarantee that personal information and transactions on the internet will be maintained confidential and secure.

Canadian Copyright Law
Copyright protection is automatic in Canada. A work need not be registered with the Canadian Copyright Office nor does it have to be marked with a © to indicate that it is copyright protected.
A copy of the Canadian Copyright Act is available here.
It is important to understand the basics of Canadian copyright law and how it relates to film and underlying works such as music, literature, and promotional material for film. As well, it is important to know that Canada is a member of two international copyright treaties. Thus, when work is used in Canada, Canadian copyright law applies; when it is used in another country such as Germany, German copyright law applies.
