Privacy Policy


Last updated: November 19, 2018

This Privacy Policy governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal information on savecanadianjobs.com (the “Site”). We are the Save Canadian Jobs Coalition (the “Coalition”), a not-for-profit group working to mobilize individuals opposed to BillC-69, known as the “Impact Assessment Act”. Personal information is any information about an identifiable individual. This Policy outlines the type of information that the Site’s operator the Save Canadian Jobs Coalition (the “Coalition”) and its members, officers, employees and affiliates (collectively, “we” or “us”) gather about users of this Site (“you” or “your”) while using this Site and how we use and disclose that information. Please read this Privacy Policy as, by using this Site, you agree that your use of this Site is governed by this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. We will reflect any such modifications to this Privacy Policy on this Site. Your continued used of this Site after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of this Privacy Policy, as revised.

Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

We collect and store your name, postal code and e-mail address if you voluntarily supply this information to us when you subscribe to our email list. Your email address is stored at the email list server and can only be accessed by the Coalition’s administrators, including those who help manage these lists. This information is used to provide you with access to Site content, and to allow the Coalition’s administrators to contact you with updates (if you have indicated you would like to receive such updates via email) and to let you know about campaigns the coalition may be running.

Your postal code allows us to match you to your local riding, so that we can identify for you who your local MP and Senators are and to facilitate contact.

As well, some information is collected automatically from you when you use the Site. For example, we collect and use data contained in log files which include: your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your Internet Service Provider (ISP), the browser you used to access the Site, the time you visited the Site, and the pages you visited throughout the Site, such collection and use being a standard practice on almost every website. We use this information to better understand how you and other visitors use the Site, and to improve the Site to better meet your needs. The amount of information that is sent by your web browser depends upon the browser and settings you use. Please refer to the instructions provided by your browser if you want to learn more about what information it sends to websites you visit, or how you may change or restrict this.

We may use cookies to help you manage your use of our Site, and to understand and save your preferences for future visits. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. .

We do not sell your personal information to any third parties. However, we may share personal information with trusted third parties who assist us in operating this Site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe such release is necessary to comply with the law, enforce this Site’s policies, or protect ours or others’ legal rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. We may also transfer personal information collected in the event that we merge with or are acquired by a third party, or for any other purpose permitted by law or to which you consent.

Security Safeguards

The security of the personal information you provide to us is very important to us. As such, we do our best to ensure your information remains secure, and we maintain technical and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. However, you understand and acknowledge that there are inherent risks of providing information online, and that no method of transmission over the Internet and no method of electronic storage is completely secure. Although we make every effort to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Third-party links

Please note that any links to third-party websites on this Site are not bound by this Privacy Policy. Any such third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies that may be different from our own. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. As such, if you wish to know more about their privacy policies, please visit their websites and review their privacy policies.

Interpretation of this Privacy Policy 

Any interpretation associated with this Privacy Policy will be made by the Coalition. This Privacy Policy includes examples but is not intended to be restricted in its application to such examples; therefore, where the word “including” is used, it shall mean “including without limitation.” 

This Privacy Policy does not create or confer upon any individual any rights, or impose upon the Coalition any obligations outside of, or in addition to, any rights or obligations imposed by Canada’s federal and provincial privacy laws, as applicable. Should there be, in a specific case, any inconsistency between this Privacy Policy and Canada’s federal or provincial privacy laws, as applicable, this Privacy Policy shall be interpreted, in respect of that case, to give effect to, and comply with, such privacy laws.
