The Canadian Association of Pregnancy Support Services (CAPSS) 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
• 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 online giving, the credit card number and expiration date. 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 is the information used?
No sharing of personal information
CAPSS never sells, rents, leases, or exchanges your personal information with other organizations. CAPSS 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 CAPSS and only to further the activities and purposes of the organization.
CAPSS 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. CAPSS uses Internet Encryption Software. Thawte protocol is used when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information. Any information you enter is encrypted at your browser, sent over the public Internet in encrypted form, and then decrypted at our server. Once we receive your credit card information, it is accessible only to a small number of trusted CAPSS staff that have been specially trained in processing this information.
