Privacy Policy

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.

During the course of our various programs and activities, we frequently gather personal information. Anyone from whom we collect such information should expect that it will be carefully protected and that it is used only for the purposes for which it is collected or other uses notified to you in this Privacy Policy as updated from time to time.  By submitting personal information to us, you consent to our processing of that information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.   You can withdraw your consent at any time but withdrawing consent may result in your inability to continue using certain functionality on the Trans Canada Trail website and various aspects of our programs and activities.

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.

Privacy Practices

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.

Amendment of this Policy

If we find it necessary or desirable to change our Privacy Policy in the future, we will post an appropriate notice on the Website.  Any change to this Privacy Policy will become effective ten (10) days following the date the change is posted and will apply to information collected from the date of the posting of the revised privacy policy and to existing information held by Trans Canada Trail.  The date on which the latest update was made is indicated at the bottom of this document.  We recommend that you print a copy of this privacy policy for your reference and revisit this policy from time to time to ensure you are aware of any changes.  Your continued use of the website and/or the services signifies your acceptance of any changes to this policy.
