Trout Unlimited Canada is committed to safeguarding the personal information entrusted to us by our members and others. We manage your personal information in accordance with all applicable Canadian provincial and federal laws. This policy outlines the principles and practices we follow in protecting your personal information.
What personal information do we collect and what do we use it for?
We normally collect client personal information directly from you. We may collect your information from others with your consent or as authorized by law.
We will inform you, before or at the time of collecting personal information, of the purposes for which we are collecting the information. The only time we don't provide this notification is when a client volunteers information for an obvious purpose (for example,producing a credit card to pay a membership fee when the information will be used only to process the payment).
We will not sell your personal information to any other organisation. Your information may be shared within Trout Unlimited Canada as part of our national, regional and Chapter activities,including fundraising and volunteer activities. Your information will not be sold or shared with any third party without your consent.
Financial information you provide to us will be used solely for the transactions for which it is provided. No financial information will be retained by Trout Unlimited Canada or shared with anyone,except as necessary to process the transaction. To safeguard your personal information submitted for online transactions, those transactions will be processed on a secure server hosted by our payment provider which is currently, Moneris Solutions.
We may ask for your express consent for some purposes and may not be able to provide certain services if you are unwilling to provide consent to the collection, use or disclosure of certain personal information.
In cases that do not involve sensitive personal information, we may rely on "opt-out" consent. In such cases you can opt out by checking the appropriate box on our form or by telephoning our toll-free number.
You may withdraw consent to the use and disclosure of your personal information at any time, unless the personal information is necessary for us to fulfil our legal obligations. We will respect your decision, but we may not be able to provide you with certain products and services if we do not have the necessary personal information.
We may collect, use or disclose your personal information without consent if such use is authorized by law. For example, we may not request consent when the collection, use or disclosure is to determine suitability for an honour or award, or in an emergency that threatens life, health or safety.
How do we safeguard personal information?
We protect personal information in a manner appropriate for the sensitivity of the information. We make every reasonable effort to prevent any loss, misuse, disclosure or modification of personal information, as well as any unauthorized access to personal information.
We retain personal information only as long as is reasonable to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected or for legal or business purposes.
Access to records containing personal information
You may make a written request for access to your personal information by contacting to Dean Orlando, Director of Finance, at the Trout Unlimited Canada National Office. You must provide sufficient information in your request to allow us to identify the information you are seeking.
