WHAT IS “PERSONAL INFORMATION”?
“Personal information” is information about an identifiable individual. It includes contact information such as your name, address, phone number and financial information.
HOW DO WE OBTAIN YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND WHAT DO WE OBTAIN?
We obtain personal information in a few different ways. Some information is provided to us directly by City of Vancouver. For example, each time a municipal election or byelection is held we receive a List of Electors, which includes the names and addresses of eligible voters. We also collect information from publicly available data sources, and through voter outreach activities, such as door-to-door canvassing and voter contact phone calls.
We may engage third party providers to perform tasks on our behalf, such as processing your donation, making phone calls and providing technical services to our website. When information is shared with third parties for these purposes, we include privacy protective clauses in written contracts to help safeguard personal information.
We do not sell personal information under any circumstance.
HOW DO WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION?
HOW CAN I UPDATE MY INFORMATION OR UNSUBSCRIBE?
You may update or correct the information in our possession by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by writing to us at the address below.
If you have subscribed to receive information by email, you may unsubscribe by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email message.
WHAT ABOUT ANTI-SPAM LEGISLATION?
Most of the messages sent by the Campaign to Elect Ken Sim for Mayor and its other political entities are exempt from the application of Canada’s anti-spam law which applies to commercial electronic messages sent to electronic addresses. This is because the electronic messages that we send are generally either those soliciting donations, which are specifically exempt under the law, or are messages of a political, not a commercial, character. If we do send any messages to which the law applies and for which there are no exemptions, we will ensure that we have consent to do so, as required by the law, and that any other legal requirements e.g. an unsubscribe mechanism, are met. As a best practice, we have an unsubscribe mechanism for our electronic messages, even where the law does not require us to do so.
DOES THE CAMPAIGN TO ELECT KEN SIM FOR MAYOR LOG IP ADDRESSES?
We log IP addresses, or the location of your computer network on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We may also use IP addresses to track which pages people visit in order to improve the quality of our website.
LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
Our website contains links to a limited number of other websites including those for our provincial and territorial boards. The Campaign to Elect Ken Sim for Mayor is not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of these websites.
