Privacy Policy

We protect your privacy


SCENE® is a loyalty program that is operated by Scene Limited Partnership ("Scene LP"). Cineplex Entertainment LP ("Cineplex") and The Bank of Nova Scotia ("Scotiabank") are the limited partners and originating sponsors (which, including their subsidiaries, affiliates and joint ventures, are described below as the "Sponsors" hereinafter referred to as "us", "we" or "our") of Scene LP and the SCENE loyalty program ("SCENE" or "Program").

SCENE is committed to protecting your right to privacy. We treat your personal information with the utmost of respect and operate in strict accordance with all privacy legislation. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this Policy as it outlines how we collect, use, disclose and protect your personal information. We also recommend that you periodically review this Policy as it may be altered or updated from time to time.

What is personal information?


"Personal information" is information about an identifiable individual member of the SCENE loyalty program ("Member"). This may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, e-mail address, age, member number and password and certain demographic information.

Collecting, using and disclosing your personal information


Your personal information will not be collected, used or disclosed without your consent. Scene LP only collects the information that we need to provide services to you and to administer SCENE. We collect your personal information through:

  • Your enrollment in SCENE;
  • Online and electronic activity with Scene LP;
  • Telephone, paper and online surveys and contests; and,
  • Your use of your SCENE membership card and SCENE® ScotiaCardMD and SCENE VISA* card issued by Scotiabank.
The personal information we collect includes your name, mailing address, home telephone number and e-mail address. We ask for your birth date to verify eligibility for SCENE and to facilitate the automatic connection and/or enrollment of your Scene membership account to your Scene ScotiaCard and/or Scene Visa card. We also ask you to choose a password to verify your identity, and a unique question related to your password. We may also ask for your cell number and secure messaging service number, but providing this information is optional. We will disclose your name, email address, postal code, birth date and home telephone number to Scotiabank for the purpose of connecting your Scene membership account with your Scene ScotiaCard and/or Scene Visa card.

We may collect additional information from you to create a member profile including marital status, number of people in household, household income, gender, education, home language, movie-going preferences and information that identifies you as an existing Scotiabank customer, if applicable. Providing this information is optional. We do not collect the personal information of individuals under 14 years of age and only collect a limited amount of personal information from Members who are under the age of majority in the province in which they reside. For further details on this matter please see the SCENE Terms and Conditions available at www.scene.ca.

We collect, use and disclose your personal information for the following purposes:


  • To set up and administer SCENE including ongoing management of SCENE accounts, and to accurately record points and up-to-date point balances;
  • To process SCENE redemptions and issue rewards;
  • To allow you to participate in promotions and contests;

  • To facilitate or enable any corporate or commercial transaction involving Scene LP.
We do not provide directly all the services related to your relationship with us. We may use third party service providers to process or handle personal information on our behalf. A third party service provider is someone other than Scotiabank, Cineplex and any of their respective subsidiaries or affiliates. Some of our third party service providers may be located outside of Canada and subject to foreign legislation. As a result, your personal information may be accessible to regulatory authorities in accordance with the law of these jurisdictions. When personal information is provided to our service providers, we require them to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy.

You agree that we may use, disclose to and collect from credit bureaus or financial service industry databases, credit and other information about you in order to offer you pre-approved credit products . You may withdraw your consent at any time by giving us reasonable notice.

We will obtain your consent before using or disclosing personal information for a purpose that has not been specified in this Policy, unless the new purpose is required by law.

Withdrawing consent


Subject to legal, regulatory and contractual requirements, you may withdraw your consent to our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information at any time by giving us reasonable notice. Depending on the circumstances, however, withdrawal of your consent may impact on our ability to provide you or to continue to provide you with some of the privileges and opportunities of SCENE membership.

Security, retention and destruction of personal information


We do our utmost to protect and safeguard your personal information using physical, electronic and procedural measures appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, including safeguards to protect your information against loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification.
