OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY

Ontario Good Roads Association (the “OGRA”) is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its members, employees, volunteers, and other stakeholders.

This Privacy Policy documents our ongoing commitment to privacy and has been developed in compliance with applicable privacy legislation.

OGRA will be recording sessions during this virtual conference and OGRA will collect attendee data/business information to be shared with OGRA partners.

PURPOSE

During the course of our various programs and activities, OGRA may gather and use 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.

WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify, or contact a specific individual. Exceptions: business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and contact details as published in publicly-available directories, are not considered personal information.

Where OGRA members, employees, volunteers, or other stakeholders use their home contact information as business contact information, the OGRA considers that the contact information provided is business contact information and is not therefore subject to protection as personal information.

SAFEGUARDING PERSONAL INFORMATION

OGRA protects the personal information in its custody or control by making reasonable security arrangements to prevent unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal or similar risks.

OGRA will take reasonable steps to ensure that a comparable level of personal information protection is implemented by its suppliers and agents who assist in providing products and services to you.
