In accordance with applicable laws, CIUT 89.5 FM is committed to protecting the privacy of its members, adherents, donors, volunteers, employees, directors and any other persons about or from whom CIUT collects personal information. CIUT embraces the principles of the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information to ensure that all personal information is properly collected, used only for the purposes for which it is collected and is disposed of in a safe and timely manner when no longer required.
CIUT is responsible for maintaining and protecting the personal information under its control. CIUT has appointed a Privacy Officer who is responsible to ensure that the CIUT complies with its privacy obligations in accordance with applicable privacy laws.
- Identifying Purposes
CIUT collects and uses personal information for a variety of purposes including, but not limited to,
- establishing and maintaining members lists
- establishing and maintaining lists of donors
CIUT shall identify and explain the purposes for which it collects personal information, to the person from whom the personal information is being collected, before or at the time the information is collected.
Consent will be obtained from the person whose personal information is collected, used and disclosed, unless obtaining the consent would be inappropriate or not required by law. When it is appropriate, written consent will be obtained.
Written consents will be kept on file for as long as the information is reasonably necessary. A person may withdraw his or her consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. The person will be informed of reasonably foreseeable implications of the withdrawal.
- Limiting Collection
Information collected will be limited to that required for the purpose or purposes identified by CIUT. CIUT is committed to collecting personal information in a fair, open and lawful manner.
- Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention
Personal information shall not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with the consent of the person or as required by law. All collected personal information shall be destroyed, erased or made anonymous as soon as the purpose for which it was collected is no longer relevant, or as permitted by the law.
Personal information shall be maintained in as accurate, complete and up-to- date a form as necessary in order to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected.
Personal information will be protected by security safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information. This safeguarding could include organizational measures such as restricted access to files with personal information or technological measures such as security software.
- Access to Personal Information
Access to personal information will be granted, where CIUT is legally required to release the information and provided that the disclosure does not violate any applicable statutes or contracts, to the person to whom the information pertains where there is an appropriate written request. The existence, use and disclosure of the personal information will be granted within a reasonable period of time. Any inaccuracy or incompleteness of personal information will be amended as required.
- Challenging Compliance
Complaints or inquiries about the collection, use, disclosure or retention of personal information and CIUT’s compliance with these ten principles should be directed to the Privacy Officer. The Privacy Officer will investigate complaints and ensure that appropriate measures are taken.
