Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us at the Acoustic Neuroma Association of Canada (ANAC), and this is why we believe in an active approach to safeguarding your privacy online. You can be assured that your confidentiality, security, and individual right to privacy are respected and upheld at all times.

This privacy policy has been prepared to inform you of our policy and practices concerning the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information. By providing us with personal information, you accept the terms of this privacy policy and consent to allow us to collect, use, disclose and dispose of your personal information in agreement with the conditions of this privacy policy. If you do not accept the terms of this privacy policy, please do not provide us with any Personal Information.

Collection and Consent to the Disclosure of Personal Information

You consent to the collection of the personal information you send to us such as your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, or other personal information we may gather through the submission of any of the forms on our Website -- including membership and registry information. We will never exchange or sell your personal data to any other company or third parties. By submitting a form on our website, you are giving us permission to collect and disclose to each other all of your personal information for responding to your requests.

However, while ANAC has taken reasonable steps to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of personally identifiable information that you may provide, electronic transmissions via the Internet are not necessarily secure from interception and so we cannot guarantee the security or confidentiality of such transmissions.

Retention of Personal Information

We retain this personal information for the period required to fulfil the purpose for which it is collected, and for a period after that.
