Privacy Policy

EcoCampaign is a project of the West Kootenay EcoSociety.

What information we collect and when

EcoSociety collects personal information when you create or sign a petition, attend an event, purchase a membership, donate, or take other actions on our website or in person.

Personal information we collect may include your name, address, email, phone number, as well as petitions you have signed and issues you have told us you care about. If you choose to make a donation online, we collect and securely process financial information including credit card numbers.

How we store and use your personal information

We take your privacy seriously, and will only ever use personal information for the purposes it was given. We will never share or sell your personal information without your consent. We collect personal information online, through our website, and also on paper. Most personal information that we collect is transferred and stored electronically in our secure supporter database.

We use your personal information to keep track of our supporters, provide you with updates on EcoSociety’s work and campaigns, raise funds by asking for donations, and to further our advocacy efforts and organizational mission. In the case of petitions and campaigns, we may use your name publicly, for example as part of a petition delivery to a decision maker, or by showing who has taken part in a campaign on our website. You can always opt out of having your name used in this way.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies in order to provide an easy user experience. A cookie is a small file that your web browser stores, that means that when you come back to our website - for example to sign a new petition - you don’t have to re-enter information you have entered previously. You can always set your browser to not store cookies if you prefer.

Your privacy choices

Giving us your personal information is always optional. You can choose to not take part in EcoSociety campaigns or petitions, and every email we send out includes a link to unsubscribe.

Accessing your information

You can ask us any questions related to privacy and personal information. You can access and correct your personal information held by EcoSociety, or ask us to delete your personal information from our systems. (We may be unable to delete records of donations or purchases immediately in order to comply with audit and credit card regulations.)
