CSFA Privacy Policy - updated February 2013

Campaign for a Smoke-free Alberta (CSFA) respects the privacy of our online stakeholders. We recognize the importance of privacy and are committed to maintaining the accuracy, confidentiality and security of your personal information. We do not sell or trade any personal information.

This privacy policy describes the types of personal information that CSFA collects and how we manage personal information.

Definition of personal information

Personal information is any information that can identify an individual, such as name, address, age, or email address. Information that is publicly available, such as a telephone book listing, is not considered to be personal information.

How CSFA uses your personal information

CSFA collects your personal information directly from you and only with your consent. CSFA uses your personal information to keep you informed about our activities. CSFA does not sell or trade any personal information we collect or receive.

If you want to stop receiving information from CSFA, please reply to any communication with a request to unsubscribe.

Personal information CSFA collects

The information CSFA collects is the minimum information required to establish and maintain a relationship with you and to properly track the success of our campaigns. This includes:

  • contact and identification information (name, e-mail);
  • Copies of messages sent to politicians and to the media through the CSFA website
Accuracy and how long we keep personal information

CSFA aims to ensure that any personal information provided is accurate, complete and current as required for the purposes for which the information is used.

When your personal information is no longer required for CSFA purposes, the information is either physically destroyed or deleted.

Your privacy

Information we collect and how we use it

Two types of information are collected from our website:

  1. Personal or "individually identifiable" information you provide to us.
  2. Aggregate information regarding overall website traffic patterns. Normally, web servers collect this type of standard web server/visitor traffic information as part of their web log processes. We do not report on individual user sessions.
Personal or "individually identifiable" information

You do not need to give personal information to receive information from this site.

There are instances online, however, when CSFA requests individually identifiable information from you. Please note that we do give our web visitors options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:

  • opting not to provide certain personal information when participating in a campaign; and/or,
  • opting not to receive further communications from CSFA.

If you would like to opt out please contact us at admin@protectalbertakids.ca.

Future contact with CSFA

CSFA may contact online campaign participants with further communications. If you do not wish to be contacted, we will honour this request. Simply contact the privacy officer.
Occasionally, CSFA may contact individuals who have provided their individually identifiable information through the website, and have agreed to be contacted, specifically in order to conduct surveys seeking feedback. These surveys are used to improve our level of service to you. While aggregate information about survey results may be publicized, individual data from these surveys will not be shared with other organizations.

Links to other sites

CSFA has links to other websites that are not under its control. CSFA is not responsible for the contents of any linked website, any link contained in a linked website or any changes or updates to such websites. The inclusion of any link does not mean that CSFA endorses that website.
Please be aware that CSFA is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites that we link to. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every website that requests personal information from you.

Inquiries about our privacy policy and requests to access your personal information
