Information we collect and how we use it

Personal information

“Personal information” is any information that can be used to identify, or infer the identity of, a specific person, including, for example, your name, address, birth date, gender, etc. In some cases, your computer’s IP address can be considered personal information, as it may give some indication of your geographic location. 

We may ask you for personal information in a variety of ways, including website forms, surveys, mail-in forms, over the phone and in person. 

There are a range of reasons why we may ask you for this information, including: to process a donation or registration; to fulfil your subscription to an e-newsletter; to allow you to send letters or sign a petition via our online action platforms; to invite you to events; or to provide other information about us which might interest you. We may also contact you by mail, email or phone about opportunities to donate in support of our work. 

Your choice to provide us with your personal information is at your discretion.  In some cases, we use information to fulfil a transaction such as  in the case of a donation where we are required by law to take your full name and mailing address in order to send you a tax-deductible receipt.

This helps us stay relevant.
