Our Commitment to Member and Customer Privacy
Our association is committed to providing every member and customer with quality service. We consider the protection of personal information concerning each of our members and customers (including potential members and customers) to be a key part of our high level of service.
We consider “personal information” to be information about an identifiable individual. We do not consider public information found in directories and listings, or business names, addresses and/or contact numbers, to be personal information.
We have adopted the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information (CAN/CSA -Q830). We will identify individuals in or association who are specifically responsible for our compliance with the CSA Code.
Why We Collect Personal Information
We collect and use personal information about our members and customers in order to identify them, to communicate with them, to protect the Association and our members and customers against error and fraud, to understand what products or services our members and customers want and to provide information about our products and services. We do not disclose the personal information of our customers to anyone else and we will not permit anyone else to use the personal information of our members or customers for any purpose without the customer’s consent.
