Your Privacy

Muslim Social Services KW (MSS) is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its employees, volunteers, members, clients, donors, and other stakeholders.

Defining personal information

Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify, or contact a specific individual. We consider donor and volunteer information always to be personal information, and do not disclose information about donors or volunteers without consent nor do we share our donor list with other organizations.

MSS observes the following practices when collecting, maintaining and using personal information:

Consent

An individual’s consent is required regarding the collection and use of personal information. Consent can be either express or implied and can be provided directly by the individual or a parent/guardian if the subject is a minor.

Limited Use, Disclosure and Retention

Personal information will not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with the consent of the individual or as required by law. Personal information will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.

Further information on privacy and your rights in regard to your personal information is found on the website of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada at www.privcom.gc.ca.
