We, the Community Foundations of Canada (CFC), do not warrant that the functions contained on our websites or the third party hyperlinked websites will be error-free or accessible on an uninterrupted basis, that defects will be corrected, or that the server that makes the websites available are free of viruses or other harmful components.

This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for all websites owned by CFC.
We respect your privacy. Any personal information you provide to us - including your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address - will not be released, sold, or rented to any entities or individuals outside of the organization.

We share website usage and generic statistical information about visitors to our website and membership in general with reputable third parties for the purpose of securing operational funding. However, no direct or personal information that can be associated with any individual is provided to anyone outside of the organization.

Information Collection and Use

We are the sole owner of the information collected on our websites. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Information is collected from our users at several different points on our websites.


Our websites use cookies to remember if a user has logged in while he/she is on one of our sites. This allows the users to avoid logging in more than once, thereby saving time. Users have the option of disabling or not accepting cookies by changing the preferences on their browsers. If a user opts not to enable cookies, he/she will still be able to use our website. However, he/she may not be able to use the complete functionality of our websites. No personally identifiable information (e-mail address, name, etc.) is collected with the cookies that we set, and accepting cookies while on the sites will not put the user at risk for marketing to other sites.


We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use for reporting and sponsorship purposes. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We also collect information submitted through website tools that may be aggregated for research purposes.


We may share aggregated information collected from our websites. Information is not disclosed in any way that identifies any individual person or individual organization.


Our websites contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we do not claim any responsibility for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our sites and to read the privacy statements of each and every website. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by websites owned by CFC.


We take every precaution to protect our users' information, and we have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information.

Correction/Updating Personal Information

If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as a postal code or e-mail address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavour to provide a way to correct, update, or remove that user's personal data provided to us.

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an e-mail. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
