What is Personal Information?
We consider “Personal Information” to mean any information, recorded in any form, about an identified individual or an individual whose identity may be inferred or determined from such information, other than business contact information (e.g. name, title, business address, telephone and fax numbers and e-mail address).
Why CAWEE May Collect Personal Information
CAWEE collects information provided in writing (including via electronic media) or verbally about Members and Guests who attend CAWEE events, and does so to fulfill the objectives and mandate of the Association, which involve:
- Communicating with and determining the needs of its membership;
- Providing products, services and information to its Members;
- Managing our relationship with Members;
- Providing contact information of members and guests attending CAWEE events to encourage networking between members and guests. Only members of CAWEE receive such lists;
- Meeting any legal or regulatory requirements; and
Such other purposes consistent with the foregoing purposes.
How CAWEE Uses Personal Information
CAWEE only collects, uses and discloses Personal Information for purposes that would be considered reasonable in the circumstances and only such information as is required for the purposes of providing products, services or information to our Members. We use only fair and lawful methods to collect Personal Information.
Our use of Personal Information is limited to the purposes described in this Policy.
When CAWEE May Disclose Your Personal Information
As a general rule, all information concerning a Member is held in strict confidence and with exception in limited circumstances, is not revealed to anyone unless expressly or implicitly authorized by the Member.
Where CAWEE discloses Personal Information to organizations that perform services on its behalf, we will require those service providers to use such information solely for the purposes of providing services to the person concerned or CAWEE and to have appropriate safeguards for the protection of that Personal Information.
Please note that there are circumstances where the use and/or disclosure of Personal Information may be justified or permitted or where CAWEE is obliged to disclose information without consent. Such circumstances may include:
- Where required by law or by order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental tribunal;
- Where CAWEE believes, upon reasonable grounds, that it is necessary to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of an identifiable person or group;
- Where it is necessary to establish or collect fees;
- Where it is necessary to permit CAWEE to pursue available remedies or limit any damages that CAWEE may sustain; or
- Where the information is public.
Where obliged or permitted to disclose information without consent, CAWEE will not disclose more information than is required.
Unless permitted by law, no Personal Information is collected, without first obtaining the consent of the individual concerned to the collection, use and dissemination of that information. However, we may seek consent to use and disclose Personal Information after it has been collected in those cases where CAWEE wishes to use the information for a purpose not identified in this Policy or not previously identified or for which the individual concerned has not previously consented.
If a Member consents, her/their personal information shall be used for the purposes indicated in this policy statement. If a member does not consent, then her/their personal information shall be used by CAWEE for purposes of communicating with the Member only and shall not be provided to anyone else (e.g. Preferred Suppliers). In the event a Member does not indicate her/their consent, the submission of the information constitutes the consent of an applicant to the use of her/their personal information for these purposes.
If a Member wishes to withdraw her/their consent to have her/their CAWEE membership information disclosed to affiliated organizations, preferred suppliers and other reputable organizations, the Member should contact CAWEE.
