Protecting your Privacy
Trans Canada Trail follows the highest ethical standards in carrying out its mission and, therefore, protecting your privacy is very important to us. We value the trust of those we deal with and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat the information that is shared with us.
Defining Personal Information
Personal information is any information that identifies a living individual or can be used to identify such individual. Such information may include names, age, gender, e-mail address, location and telephone number. Exceptions include business contact information and publicly available information such as name, address, and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories.
Personal information gathered by us will be treated with respect. Our staff is authorized to access personal information based only on their need to deal with the information for the reasons for which it was obtained. Safeguards are in place and continue to be enhanced to ensure that information is not disclosed or shared more widely than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. We also take measures to ensure that the integrity of this information is maintained. On occasion, Trans Canada Trail may provide supporter names to other like-minded organizations.
We routinely offer individuals with whom we deal the option not to have their information shared for purposes beyond those for which it was explicitly collected.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent if we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other Website members, users of the Online Community, or anyone else (including the rights or property of anyone else) that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose Personal Information when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is required by and in accordance with the law.
