We reserve the right to share aggregate information about our supporter base, stripped of any personally identifiable information, to third parties in order to comply with reporting obligations, and for business or marketing purposes. We also provide information to third parties on a strictly confidential and secured basis, to distribute faxes, e-mails, updates, surveys, telephone calls and text messages on our behalf.

4. Runnymede Society collects information for purposes of providing services and information to our supporters, as described in paragraph 2 above. Runnymede Society retains this information unless a request to be removed from Runnymede Society’s database is received. Information collected pursuant to event registration, donations, and other financial transactions, will be retained as long as required by the Canadian Customs and Revenue Agency for tax and audit purposes.

5. Access to all personal information is restricted to Runnymede Society offices, employees and authorized agents only.
