What is personal information?
Personal information is any information that can identify an individual, such as name, address, age, credit card information, banking information. Personal information does not include an individual’s business title or business contact or information that cannot be associated with or tracked back to a specific individual. Information that is publicly available, such as a telephone book listing, is not considered to be personal information.
What personal information does Myeloma Canada collect?
The information Myeloma Canada collects is the minimum information required to establish and maintain a service, volunteer, participant, donor or program relationship with you. This includes:
- Contact and identification information (name, address, phone number, e-mail)
- Donation information (date of gift, amount of gift, the campaign you contributed to, name of spouse or partner if it was a joint gift).
- Financial information (payment methods and preferences, billing and banking information, credit card number and expiry date or chequing account transit numbers to process your donation).
- Other personal information used for purposes that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances. (For example, if you have demonstrated an interest in participating in fundraising events, we may send you information regarding other fundraising programs and services).
