What is considered personal information?
Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact, as specific as an individual's name, address, birth date, email address and phone number. As a regular course of business, it may be provided to those who provide us with contracted services. We verify that these companies adhere to the relevant privacy legislation. Personal identifiers will not be rented or sold to any third party without approval.

2. Identifying Purposes
The organization collects and uses personal information for a variety of purposes including but not limited to:
-providing services to individuals served by the organization;
-establishing and maintaining members lists and/or membership history; and purchases, registrations, donations and preferred payment methods.
The organization shall identify and explain the purposes for which it collects personal information to the person from whom the personal information is being collected before or at the time the information is collected.
Consent will be obtained from the person whose personal information is collected, used and disclosed, unless obtaining the consent would be inappropriate or not required by law.
