Privacy Policy Statement

Our Commitment:

  1. The EFC is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its employees, members, donors and stakeholders. We will be transparent and accountable in how we treat the information that donors choose to share with us.
  2. Anyone from whom we collect personal information can expect that it will be carefully protected and that the use of, or others dealing with this information, is subject to consent.
  3. Anyone may request that their personal information in EFC files be deleted and destroyed.

Defining Personal Information

  1. Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. The information can include an individual’s opinions or beliefs, as well as facts about, or related to, the individual. Exceptions: business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories, are not considered personal information.
  2. Where an individual uses his or her home contact information as business contact information as well, we consider that the contact information provided is business contact information, and is not therefore subject to protection as personal information.

Privacy Practices

Personal information gathered by the EFC is kept in confidence. Our personnel are authorized to access personal information based only on their need to deal with the information for the reason(s) for which it was obtained. We also take measures to ensure the integrity of this information is maintained and to prevent its being lost or destroyed.

Website and Electronic Commerce

We use password protocols and encryption software to protect personal and other information we receive when a product or service is requested and/or paid for online or when a donation is made online. Our software is routinely updated to maximize protection of such information.

Updating of Privacy Policy

We regularly review our privacy practices for our various activities, and update our policy.

Contact Information:

Question, concerns or complaints relating to the EFC’s privacy policy on the treatment of personal information will be handled by the Director, Administration and Finance.
