Collection and disclosure of personal information

You are under no obligation to disclose any personal information to the County at any time. But if you want to take full advantage of all of the website’s features such as participating in a survey, applying for a volunteer position or becoming part of a mailing list, you may be asked to provide personal information. The information you choose to give us will enable the County and its partner organizations and businesses to provide you with information, assistance and services personalized to your shopping and volunteer preferences and to better tailor our marketing and volunteer initiatives to the individuals who use this site.

If you choose to provide personal information, we will keep track only of the information and preferences that you choose to provide to us. The County will keep that information stored securely on the system and will not release it without your consent to any third party other than those member businesses, organizations and/or member categories whom you have indicated.

Any personal information that is provided through this site will only be used for the purposes of sending you relevant publications, newsletters, notices and promotions; for research; for program and web site evaluation and improvement; for volunteer recruitment and management; and for responding to your comments or inquiries.

Except for the foregoing, you will not be placed on any mailing lists and none of your personal information will ever be shared, rented, sold or otherwise released to any third party.

Occasionally we may use your personal information to create aggregate summaries of general demographic information for statistical and research purposes. We may share such summaries with providers and potential providers of economic development service in Ontario. However, summaries will never include any personal information that could be used to identify you.
