Schools of Dreams
Schools of Dreams is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its Board of Directors, volunteers, donors, and other stakeholders. We value the trust of those we deal with, 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.
During the course of our various activities, Schools of Dreams frequently gathers and uses personal information. Anyone from whom we collect such information should expect that it will be carefully protected and that any use of, or other dealing with, this information is subject to consent. The Schools of Dreams privacy practices are designed to achieve this objective.
Defining Personal Information
Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. This 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. Information in the public domain is not subject to privacy legislation and, as such, is not included in this policy.
We consider donor and volunteer information always to be personal information, and do not disclose information about donors or volunteers without consent. In accordance with and in addition, to Imagine Canada, the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Donor Bill of Rights, and CRA, Schools of Dreams observes the following practices when collecting, maintaining, and using personal information:
An individual’s consent is required regarding the collection and proposed use of personal information when information is collected. Consent can be either expressed or implied and can be provided directly by the individual or by an authorized representative. Express consent can be given orally, electronically, or in writing. Implied consent is consent that can reasonably be inferred from an individual’s action or inaction. An individual’s consent is required before confidential information is released to outside parties.
The collection of personal information is limited to that which is relevant and necessary to our programs and fundraising efforts. Schools of Dreams will not make unwarranted or intrusive inquiries into a donor or prospect’s gift history or personal life.
