GMPQ recognizes the importance of privacy. We know how crucial it is to protect personal information. We are committed to maintaining the accuracy, confidentiality, and security of your personal information by taking all necessary steps.
What is personal data?
Personal data includes any information that enables an individual to be identified. This includes names, address, age, credit card details, banking information, and so on. When a business’ contact information is supplied or the title of a position within an organization is given under circumstances where the title cannot be used to identify a specific individual, this is not considered personal data. Information that is publicly available, such as in a telephone directory listing, is not considered personal data.
What types of data does GMPQ collect?
GMPQ gathers the minimum of information required to establish and maintain a relationship with you, whether this relates to the provision of services, volunteering, participating in activities, or getting involved in funding or programs. This includes:
- contact information (name, address, telephone number, and email address);
- payment information (date and amount, program you are contributing to [event registration fee, donation, specific project funding], and/or the name of a partner if a joint donation is being made);
- financial information (payment methods and preferences, billing and banking information, credit card number and expiry date, chequing account number for processing the transaction)
- other personal data used for purposes that would be considered reasonable and appropriate in the circumstances (for example, if you have demonstrated an interest in participating in certain programs, we may send you information about other programs).
How does GMPQ use your personal data?
GMPQ normally collects your personal details directly from you. We only collect personal information with your consent. GMPQ uses your personal data to transmit information, to respond to requests for services and information, to keep you informed of its activities, to administer funds, and to process donations and registrations for conferences and training.
If the reason for using your personal data has changed since you gave your consent, GMPQ will contact you before using or disclosing your personal data for any other purpose.
If wish to restrict the use of your personal data to the purposes for which it was collected, or if you no longer want to hear from GMPQ about its programs and services, please call us at 514 123-4567 or send an email to email@example.com.
How does GMPQ ensure the security of personal data collected on its website (www.gmpq.org)?
GMPQ collects personal information on its website in order to provide access to the secure section of the site and for the purposes of managing subscriptions to its newsletter. This type of information is also used to register participants for programs and events. Data is collected and compiled through a secure portal.
What about links to other websites?
Accuracy and retention of personal information
GMPQ ensures that any personal data provided to us is as accurate, complete, and current as is required for the intended use of the information.
GMPQ retains personal information only for as long as it is needed to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected. The length of time of personal data retention varies from program to program, depending on the type of service or event, bearing in mind the nature of the information provided. When your personal information is no longer required by GMPQ, it is either physically destroyed or deleted from our systems.
