The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame (the “CMHF”) is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its employees, volunteers, donors, potential supporters and other stakeholders. We value the trust of those with whom we interact, and of the public, and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat the information that you choose to share with us.
Defining Personal Information
Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify, or contact a specific individual. This personal information can include an individual’s opinions or beliefs, as well as facts about, or related to, the individual. Exceptions: business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories, are not considered personal information. When an individual uses his or her home contact information as business contact information as well, we consider that the contact information provided is business contact information, and is not therefore subject to projection as personal information.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
The CMHF collects a limited amount of personal information about its donors, volunteers, laureates, nominators and potential supporters, including name, title, address, telephone numbers, email address, past donations and other relevant contact information. This information is collected in order to comply with Canada Customs and Revenue Agency requirements, to provide donors and potential supporters with information about the CMHF’s activities, to provide donors with stewardship information, to provide information about the CMHF’s nomination and selection processes, and to promote opportunities where donors and potential supporters may support the CMHF.
Safe Keeping of Information
The CMHF does not sell, trade or otherwise share our contact lists. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the correct use of information, we strive to maintain physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to secure the information we collect. All information is accessible only by authorized staff and volunteers. If at any time you wish to restrict use of your contact information, please inform the CMHF Privacy Officer in writing:
Email: lfoster [at] cdnmedhall.org / Mail: 267 Dundas Street, Suite 202, London, ON N6A 1H2
If You Wish to See or Change Your Information
The CMHF endeavours to maintain up-to-date records. Should you wish to review the information we have about you, change that information, or ask us to remove your information from our records, you may contact us through our Privacy Officer at the address noted above. That individual will ensure that your request is dealt with in the proper manner. Please remember that we may be required, by certain laws, to maintain records for taxation purposes.
