The following online privacy policy is to protect and secure the personal information you provide to our organization online. 

Awareness The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre provides this online policy to make sure you are aware of our security practices and to inform you of the way your information is collected and used. We also provide you with the opportunity to remove your name from our mailing list, if you desire to do so. 

Information we collect There are two different ways in which we collect information from visitors on our website: 
From persons interested in requesting information or materials from our organization and from our online donations. 

The online information that we collect includes name, address, city, province, postal code, telephone number, e-mail address, and, in the case of those filling out forms for serving with us, we collect the information they provide. In order to continuously improve your service and tailor our subsequent communications to you, we may also ask you to provide us with enough information regarding your demographics, comments, professional interests, and contact preferences. 

How the information used The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre uses your information to understand your needs with the aim of providing you better service. We may use your information to complete a transaction or issue you an income tax receipt for a donation. If you so desire, we may also use this information to update you on projects and activities of the organization and from time to time receive the personal views of the executive director, board members or other representatives of the Centre. We also provide you the opportunity to remove your name from our mailing list, if you desire to do so. 

No sharing of personal information The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre never sells, rents, leases, or exchanges your personal information with other organizations. The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre assures you that the identity of all who contact us through this web site will be kept confidential. Use of personal information will be limited to the internal purposes of the Valley Care Pregnancy Centre only to further the activities and purposes of the Valley Care Pregnancy Centre. 

Security The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre is committed to ensuring the security of your personal information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the proper use of information, we have established and implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Once we receive your information, it is accessible only to a small number of trusted Valley Care Pregnancy Centre staff who have been specially trained in processing this information.

Privacy Statement 
The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre normally collects guest information directly from our guests.  We may collect your information from other persons with guest consent or as authorized by law for purposes of offering our services to our guests.  

How do we safeguard personal information?
We may transfer your personal information to service providers where information processing is outsourced by us in the course of our administrative procedures. Where personal information is transferred to a service provider for processing, we require the service provider to respect this Privacy Statement and we restrict them from using or disclosing personal information transferred to them for any purpose other than the provision of services to us. Be advised that in certain circumstances we are required by law to disclose certain personal information to third parties.

We make every reasonable effort to ensure that personal information is accurate and complete.  We rely on individuals to notify us if there is a change to their personal information that may affect their relationship with our organization.  If you are aware of an error in our information about you, please let us know and we will correct it on request wherever possible.  In some cases we may ask for a written request for correction.  

We protect personal information in a manner appropriate for the sensitivity of the information.  We make every reasonable effort to prevent any loss, misuse, disclosure or modification of personal information, as well as any unauthorized access to personal information.  
We use appropriate security measures when destroying personal information, including shredding paper records and permanently deleting electronic records using the appropriate sanitation methods depending on the kind of electronic devices used and the sensitivity of the personal information to be destroyed. The Privacy Officer designated by the VCPC will record the security measures employed on a Certificate of Media Sanitation form.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us electronically. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via email. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best efforts to ensure its security on our servers.
