Canadian privacy legislation defines “Personal Information” broadly as information about an identifiable individual or as information that allows an individual to be identified. For the purposes of this Policy, Personal Information means information about an identifiable individual as defined from time to time in applicable privacy legislation. Generally speaking, Personal Information does not include what is considered business contact information; i.e. an individual’s name, title or position, business address, telephone number and business e-mail address.
The level of Personal Information we obtain about our members is very limited. The EO List collects and uses Personal Information about our network members in order to determine how best to provide resources. More specifically, we may collect, use and disclose Personal Information for the following purposes:
- to distribute our Friday e-mail;
- to make announcements regarding upcoming events;
- to generate statistics regarding the network membership;
- to distribute surveys to gather information for blogs or articles; and
- for other reasonable matters related to the purpose of The EO List.
The types of Personal Information The EO List may collect include an individual’s name, personal e-mail address, LinkedIn profile, Twitter handle, referral source and referral date. In the course of providing services, we may collect or be exposed to a wide variety of other Personal Information about a member including employment status, employer, age, gender, family status, disability, creed, ethnic origin, compensation, professional designation, experience level, language preferences, home address and telephone. Access to the member list is limited to those who legitimately need to know. We do not share the members list with the advertisers on our site, and we use Paypal to perform credit card transactions to limit our access to financial data containing Personal Information.
There are circumstances where collection, use or disclosure may be justified or permitted or where we are obliged to disclose information without consent. These circumstances could include:
- Where the information is publicly available;
- Where required by law or by order of a court or tribunal;
- Where we believe, upon reasonable grounds, that there is an imminent risk of death or serious bodily harm to an identifiable person or group;
- Where it is alleged that an EO List team member is guilty of a criminal offence or guilty of malpractice or misconduct; and
- Where it is necessary to establish or collect fees.
In such circumstances, we will not collect, use or disclose more information than is required.
The EO List endeavours to maintain adequate physical, procedural and technical security with respect information storage facilities so as to prevent any unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. Your Personal Information is stored using secured methods.
The EO List has appointed a Chief Privacy Officer to oversee compliance with this Policy and applicable privacy laws. Any questions related to this Policy or the handling of Privacy Information by The EO List can be addressed with the Privacy Officer at the contact information below:
