The Aurora Cultural Centre is committed to the protection of the privacy of its staff, volunteers, board members, donors, supporters and customers.
Some of our programs, services and forms ask for personal information such as a name, home address, email address or interests. When we request personal information, we state the purpose. We collect this personal information for the purpose of better serving our client base. We also use it to compile aggregate statistics, which include no personal information that identifies individuals, in order to administer, evaluate and improve our programming, and also to meet the statistical requirements of some funders. Personal data of this type is stored and used solely for the purposes for which it was collected. The Centre will only collect personal information directly from an individual or his/her designate. The person who is providing this information consents to its collection.
Information submitted may be removed from our records by written request.
Any personal information provided to the Centre is for the sole use of this organization and shall not be shared with any other individual, corporation or similar cultural organization without the knowledge and consent of the individual. We do not rent, trade nor sell our lists.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and administrative measures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. All personal information provided online (for example, requests to receive our email newsletters and updates) is fully protected through password protocols and encryption software. Our membership, mailing list and donor records are kept only for as long as they are required and to meet our commitments under the law. We destroy paper copies by shredding, electronic information, by deleting it and, when a hard drive is discarded, we ensure that the hard drive is physically destroyed.
