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.
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.)
