Personal information is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. Personal information that we may ask individuals to provide may include but is not limited to: first and last name, e-mail address, phone number, address, and parish affiliation.
Information submitted at the time of application or registration for membership may be used by the Foundation for membership purposes. By virtue of their registration, members consent to being added to the membership list and being contacted by the Foundation, including receiving e-mails the Foundation sends to its members.
The Foundation is required to provide the membership list to any member who requests it. Members wishing to obtain a copy of the membership list must make their request to the Foundation in writing, and will be required to sign an undertaking to use the list only to further the Foundation’s purpose and mission. The Foundation does not provide its membership list to external third parties, except to comply with legal requirements.
The Foundation uses reasonable efforts to maintain members’ information in a secure environment. Any individual who has submitted personal information and wishes to change it or opt out may contact the Foundation to do so.
Usage data refers to data collected automatically when an individual uses either of the Foundation’s websites. This data is either generated by the use of the site, or from the use of the site infrastructure itself. Usage data may include information such as the IP address of a user’s device, browser type and version, the pages of the website that a user visits, the date and time of the visit, the time spent on pages, and other diagnostic data.
Some areas of the Foundation’s websites have access restricted to members only. Users will be asked to register and provide personal information in order to visit member-restricted sections of the websites. The Foundation will only use this information to further the mission of the Foundation, including communicating with its members.
Both fccsmontreal.org and catholiccentre.ca contain links to external sites. The Foundation is not responsible for the content of those sites, nor for their privacy-related practices.
If we alter this policy, any changes will be posted on our websites so that users are always informed of the information we collect about them, how we use it and the circumstances under which we may disclose it.
