The Children’s Aid Society for the District of Nipissing and Parry Sound (The Society) respects the privacy of our donors, prospective donors, and website visitors. All personal information from or concerning those parties is kept strictly confidential by staff and volunteers unless the donors or prospective donors grant permission to use the information. Personal information may include names and addresses, nature, and value of prospective or past gifts, employers, business addresses, credit card numbers, social security numbers, email addresses and other information. All electronic data is stored securely, and only trusted individuals are granted access. Online donations are processed by Canada Helps, a trusted donation processing tool that provides easy-to-use, optimized, secure, customizable donation forms.
The Society may use personal information, with permission, for referral, testimonial, or example. Information may also be used to conduct business transactions such as processing online donations, responding to information requests, and customizing fundraising procedures.
The Society does not collect any personal information via its website. Unless an individual calls, faxes, or emails and identifies himself or herself, The Society is unaware of the person’s identity. The Society may, however, collect standard aggregate data such as pages visited and files downloaded, to improve the functionality of the website and to report to grantors. Such information is not linked to individual donors.
Donors, prospective donors, and others may receive correspondence from The Society after submitting a donation or other communication through The Society’s website. Such persons may opt out of future communications by contacting us.
The privacy of donors, prospective donors, website visitors, and members of the general public is important to The Society. To update personal information or ask questions about The Society’s privacy statement, please contact us.
