Accessing Hoopla

Be informed before you connect to Hoopla!

The personal information and privacy laws of British Columbia require that we obtain your consent before we continue.

The personal information you provide in order to register and use Hoopla may be collected by the North Vancouver District Public Library (“the Library”) under s.26(c) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act for the purpose of delivering digital content to you. Please be aware that any information collected about you or contained within your Library account* will be stored and/or accessed outside of Canada through the Hoopla service provider site over which the Library has no control and which is governed by the terms and conditions of the service provider. (* This does not include your borrowing history.)

By registering, you are acknowledging and consenting to the handling of your personal information outside of Canada where the privacy requirements will be different than the requirements of privacy legislation in BC. Please be aware that occasionally Hoopla may include third party links that may have independent privacy policies.

Please be aware that parents/legal guardians are responsible for their children’s use of Hoopla. While individuals under the age of 13 may use Lynda.com, access to materials restricted in Canada may be done only with the involvement, supervision, and approval of a parent or legal guardian.

Do you voluntarily agree and give your consent to your data being accessed and stored outside of Canada?

Yes, I consent. Take me to Hoopla. 

No, I do not consent. Take me to the NVDPL home page.

If you select “Yes,” your consent will be effective from the time your account for this service is created until it is closed.

NVDPL is committed to maintaining services and collections in both physical and online formats. If you do not consent, you will continue to have access to NVDPL’s diverse collection of books, movies, TV shows, audiobooks and music on DVDs and CDs, and to our in-person programs and training; however, you will not be able to use the requested service.

For questions regarding the collection of personal information, please contact NVDPL’s FOI/Privacy Officer, North Vancouver District Public Library, 300-1277 Lynn Valley Road, North Vancouver, BC, V7J 0A2. 604-990-5800. jvandyk@nvdpl.ca.
