How we use your information
We will use your personal information to provide you with services and to help us better understand your needs and interests. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, to communicate with you, to provide service and support, to update you on services and benefits, and to customize or personalize our website.

We will give you the opportunity to choose your privacy preferences regarding such communications. You may, at any point, contact us to request an opt-out on future communication.

Who we share your information with
We will not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to others. We will not share your personal information with third parties except in responding to your requests for services. Your permission will be requested when you submit your information. We may share information across entities and organizations working on our behalf, but only as required to meet your service requirements.
We may occasionally contract with third-party service providers and suppliers to deliver services and solutions. Suppliers and service providers are required to keep confidential the information received on behalf of us, and they may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing on our behalf. These service providers may change or we may contract with additional service providers to better accommodate our members. We will not share personal information with any other third parties without your permission, unless required by law enforcement action, subpoena, or local law.
Our site allows you the choice of receiving a variety of information that complements our services. You can subscribe to receive certain information (for example, the Challenger Newsletter), which may include service or support information, special events, or an invitation to participate in research. We give you a choice regarding delivery of our agency-wide communications by postal mail, e-mail and telephone. You can make or change your choices at the data collection point. We will make every effort to honour your preferences. This option does not apply to communications for the purpose of administering the operations of Potential Place.
Your information and third-party organizations
Some of our services are linked with those from unrelated third-party organizations, some which offer you the option to share with our company as well as the third-party personal data you provide. We will not share your personal information with those third-party organizations unless you make that choice.
Access to and accuracy of your information
We strive to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to maintain member and client data accuracy. We will provide you with access to your information, including making reasonable effort to provide you with online access and the opportunity to change your information. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. Certain areas of our websites may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords and other personal identifiers.
Keeping your information secure
We are committed to protecting the information you provide us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, we have in place appropriate physical and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data. SSL encryption is designed to make the information unreadable by anyone but us. This security measure is working when you see either the symbol of an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) on the bottom of your browser window.
