Privacy Policy

Privacy Act Acknowledgement

I agree to follow the VWA privacy policies and practices. Valley Women’s Association (VWA) complies with federal and provincial privacy legislation and is committed to protecting our members’ personal information. The information we collect is used to process memberships and to communicate with members on a variety of issues of interest.

From time to time we are approached by organizations to distribute information to our members. In these cases, VWA maintains control of the distribution and will under no circumstances make its membership list available to those organizations. Members of the VWA may contact you from time to time. It is recommended that members of the VWA obtain permission from the receiving party before forwarding unsolicited information.

Some chapters of the VWA publish a directory which becomes a matter of public record. Once printed, the VWA cannot guarantee that the information contained within the directory will not be distributed beyond the control of the VWA.

Emails regarding meetings and other events may be sent from VWA from time to time.

The personal information you provide when renewing your membership or registering for an event will be protected. When you proceed with an online transaction a secure connection is established and your information is encrypted to prevent interception during the transaction. The secure connection is maintained until the transaction is completed or terminated.

VWA may gather data concerning traffic on the website for statistical analysis. This data is not linked to your personal information and is used strictly to improve the content of the site.

Our website may contain links to websites of other organizations that maintain their own privacy and security policies. This policy articulates the privacy practices of the VWA site only.

Photographs taken at, or during, VWA events may be published in a newsletter or on the website without the express and specific approval of the parties in the photograph.
