Privacy Policy

The Board of the CMHF is committed to adhering to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act of Canada (PIPEDA). The Board designates the Executive Director to assume the role of Privacy Officer and he or she will report to the Board annually and make recommendations if any changes are required to ensure the CMHF is complying with its policy.

The CMHF uses its Privacy Policy as a set of best practices to guide the development of privacy procedures and to better inform stakeholders and the public of initiatives to protect the privacy of personal information.

Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. Business contact information and publicly available information such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories, are not considered personal information.

The CMHF frequently gathers and uses personal information during the course of its activities. This information is kept in confidence and is carefully protected.

The CMHF collects, uses and discloses personal information only for the purposes for which it was gathered and as described at the time of collection. The CMHF only collects the information it needs to fulfil these purposes.

Members of the CMHF who have access to and are associated with the processing of personal data are obliged to respect the confidentiality of the information that is gathered. The CMHF takes measures to ensure the integrity of this information is maintained and to prevent it from being lost or destroyed.

The CMHF uses password-protected software to protect personal and other information it receives. Software is routinely updated to maximize protection of such information.

The CMHF does not disclose personal data to other organizations; nor does it rent, sell or trade its mailing lists.

The CMHF offers individuals the opportunity to opt out of receiving information or to have their information used for purposes beyond those for which it was explicitly collected.

The CMHF regularly reviews its privacy practices and updates its policies.
