HOW AND WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
We will obtain personal information from you when you inquire about our activities, register with us, make a donation to us or otherwise provide us with personal information. We may also receive information about you from third parties, for example from a friend who wants to tell you about the website.
Personal information is anything that enables us to identify you as an individual, for example, your name and e-mail address. When you supply information to us, we are legally obliged by the Data Protection Act 1998 to ensure that the information you have provided is only used for the purpose for which it was requested, and to ensure that the data is kept securely.
WHAT DOES PROVIDING MY PERSONAL INFORMATION MEAN?
When you provide us with your personal data, you are consenting to collection and use of any information you provide in accordance with the above purposes and this privacy statement.
HOW DO WE USE THIS INFORMATION?
We may use your personal information to provide you with the services, products or information you have requested, for administration purposes and to further our charitable aims, including for fundraising activities. We may need to share your information with our service providers, associated organizations and agents for these purposes.
We only use your personal information for direct marketing purposes if we are allowed to do this by law or if we have your consent. You can change your mind at any time by contacting CFHU at 4950 Yonge Street, Suite 1202, Toronto, Ontario, M2N 6K1 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
DO WE USE ‘COOKIES’?
If you want to prevent our cookies being stored on your computer in future, you may do so by referring to your internet browser’s instructions. You can do this by clicking on the “Help” menu. Please note, however, that if you disable our cookies, you may not be able to access certain services or facilities on our sites and your use of our sites may be restricted. Further information on deleting or controlling cookies is available at www.AboutCookies.org.
SECURITY AND HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION
All information provided to www.cu.org is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of CFHU. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
WILL WE DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT TO OUTSIDE PARTIES?
As indicated above, we may pass your information to our service providers, agents and associated organizations, and, if you have consented, to other organizations who may share our objectives. We may also need to disclose your information if required to do so by law.
By providing us with your personal data, you consent to the collection and use of any information you give in accordance with the above purposes and this privacy statement.
You also consent to our transferring your information to countries or jurisdictions which do not provide the same level of data protection as Canada, if necessary for the above purposes. If we do make such a transfer, we will, if appropriate, put a contract in place to ensure your information is protected.
If you are under the age of 18, be sure to obtain your parent or guardian’s permission before you send any personal information to us, or anyone else. We encourage parents to get involved with their children’s online usage and to be aware of the activities in which they are participating.
CAN I HAVE ACCESS TO MY INFORMATION?
You have the right to ask for a copy of the information we hold about you (for which we may charge a small fee) and to have any inaccuracies in your information corrected.
