The law which governs privacy in Canada is know as the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
PIPEDA is a federal law that prohibits most businesses from collecting, using or disclosing personal information about an individual in Canada in the course of commercial activities, unless the individual gives informed consent.
The Congregation of the Resurrection, Ontario Kentucky Province, is fully compliant with PIPEDA and is committed to protecting your privacy.
If you give us any personal information, we will only use it for the purpose that it was given. In no way will any information that you give to us be given to anyone other than the person(s) that you for whom you intend the information. In other words all information given will remain within the Congregation of the Resurrection, unless you direct us to do otherwise.
Like most organizations we may monitor traffic patterns, site usage and related site information. Again this is not done for any reason other than to make certain that we are offering the best possible information to the community who seeks that information.
