Privacy Policy

In accordance with applicable laws, One Life One Chance Ministries is committed
to protecting the privacy of its members, adherents, donors, volunteers,
employees, directors, officers and any other persons about or from whom the
organization collects personal information. OLOCM embraces the principles of the
Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal
Information to ensure that all personal information is properly collected, used only
for the purposes for which it is collected and is disposed of in a safe and timely
manner when no longer required.
Accountability
OLOCM is responsible for maintaining and protecting the personal information
under its control. OLOCM has appointed a Privacy Officer who is responsible to
ensure that OLOCM complies with its privacy obligations in accordance with
applicable privacy laws.
Identifying Purposes
OLOCM collects and uses personal information for a variety of purposes including,
but not limited to:
• providing services to individuals ministered to by OLOCM
• establishing and maintaining members lists
• managing payroll and benefits
• employee performance evaluations
• establishing and maintaining lists of donors
OLOCM shall identify and explain the purposes for which it collects personal
information; to the person from whom the personal information is being collected,
before or at the time the information is collected.
Consent
Consent will be obtained from the person whose personal information is
collected, used and disclosed, unless obtaining the consent would be
inappropriate or not required by law. Sometimes the person’s consent may be
implied by virtue of their membership in OLOCM or because of the person’s
conduct within OLOCM. When it is appropriate, written consent will be obtained.
Written consents will be kept on file for as long as the information is reasonably
necessary. A person may withdraw his or her consent at any time, subject to
legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. The person will be
informed of reasonably foreseeable implications of the withdrawal.
Limiting Collection
Information collected will be limited to that required for the purpose or purposes
identified by OLOCM. OLOCM is committed to collecting personal information in a
fair, open and lawful manner.
Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention
Personal information shall not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those
for which it was collected, except with the consent of the person or as required by
law. All collected personal information shall be destroyed, erased or made
anonymous as soon as the purpose for which it was collected is no longer
relevant, or as permitted by the law. Nothing in this Privacy Policy prevents the
Board of Directors from collecting, retaining and using information related to
individuals ministered to by OLOCM, since such information assists in providing
quality services to those ministered to.
Accuracy
Personal information shall be maintained in as accurate, complete and up-to-date
a form as necessary in order to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected.
Safeguards
Personal information will be protected by security safeguards that are appropriate
to the sensitivity of the personal information. This safeguarding could include
physical measures such as locked filing cabinets and premises security,
organizational measures such as restricted access to files with personal
information or technological measures such as security software.
Openness
Information regarding the privacy policy of OLOCM, as well as the personal
information management, shall be available as requested. The information will
include:
• Name and address of the Privacy Officer
• Means of gaining access to personal information held by OLOCM
• Copy of any brochures or other information that explains OLOCM’s policies,
standards or codes
Access to Personal Information
Access to personal information will be granted, where OLOCM is legally required to
release the information and provided that the disclosure does not violate any
applicable statutes or contracts, to the person to whom the information pertains
where there is an appropriate written request. The existence, use and disclosure
of the personal information will be granted within a reasonable period of time.
Any inaccuracy or incompleteness of personal information will be amended as
required.
Challenging Compliance
Complaints or inquiries about the collection, use, disclosure or retention of
personal information and OLOCM’s compliance with these ten principles should be
directed to the Privacy Officer. The Privacy Officer will investigate complaints and
ensure that appropriate measures are taken.
