Types of Personal Information HMA Collects
The information we collect is the information required to establish and maintain a service, 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).
- Payment 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 an individual 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.
How We Use The Information We Collect
LoR may use your personal information in a variety of ways to deliver our programs and services, including:
- for processing donations;
- responding to requests for services and/or information;
- keeping you informed about our activities; and
- compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.
How We Share The Information We Collect
Service Providers: As necessary, HMA may share your information with our service providers who provide us with support services, such as collecting donation information, processing credit card payments, and other electronic payments, email delivery, website hosting, and analytics services. These service providers are provided only the information needed to perform their specific function and are prohibited from using this information for any other purposes.
Posting on Our Websites/Social Media Platforms: If you post information on our social media platform(s) or website, the information you post may be seen by other visitors, including your user name and post.
Protecting Lawful Interests: HMA may share your information if disclosure is required by law and is necessary to enforce our agreements or policies, or the disclosure will help us protect the rights, property or safety of HMA, its donors or our partners.
How We Protect Your Information
HMA makes reasonable efforts to ensure that any personal information you provide is maintained in a secure environment. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, LoR cannot warrant the security of any personal information you transmit to us or from our on-line services, and you do so at your own risk.
HMA has implemented and maintains reasonable and appropriate security measures, procedures and practices to protect against the loss and unauthorized access, use, modification, destruction or disclosure of your personal information while it is in our custody or under our control. For example, our employees sign confidentiality agreements and safeguards are in place to ensure that the information is not accessed, disclosed or shared more widely than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. We use password protocols and secure websites to protect personal and other information we receive when an online donation is made. Our software is routinely updated to maximize protection of such information.
We also limit access to your personal information to those employees, contractors and agents who have a business need to know. LoR keeps personal information only as long as it is needed for the reasons it was collected or as required by law, and we make reasonable efforts to ensure that any personal information you provide is maintained in a secure environment.
