The Kin Club of Woolwich (further known as the Association) is committed to protecting the privacy of our members, employees, and other interested parties in terms of their personal information. We value the trust of those we deal with, and of the public, and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be clear and accountable in how we use the information that you choose to share with us.
Our privacy pratices are designed to protect anyone from who we collect information for the purpose of running our Association. 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.
Personal information is defined as any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. This information includes an individuals opinions or beliefs, as well as facts about, or related to the individual. Business and club contact information is not considered personal information.
Where an individual uses his or her home contact information as business or club contact information as well, we will consider that the information provided is business or club contact information and is not therefore subject to protection as personal information.
Personal information gathered by our Association is kept in confidence. Our personnel are authorized to access personal information based only on their need to deal with the information for the reasons for which it was obtained. Safety measures are in place to ensure that the information is not disclosed or shared more widely than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Measures are also taken to ensure the integrity of this information and to make sure it is not lost or destroyed.
We collect, use and disclose personal information only for the purpose that a reasonable person would consider appropriate given our position. We regularly offer our membership and others we deal with the opportunity to opt not to have their information shared for purposes beyond those for which it is explicitly collected.
Website and Electronic Commerce
We use password protocols and digital encryption software to protect personal and other information we receive when a product is requested and/or paid for online. Our software is routinely updated to maximize protection of such information.
The Association regularly reviews our privacy practices for our various purposes, and updates our policy when warranted. The membership and any interested party will be informed of any updates through our Website, and other publications made by the Association.
