Personal information is information about an identifiable individual. It includes contact information such as your name, address and phone number.
We obtain personal information in a few different ways. Some information is provided to us directly by Elections BC. For example, we receive a List of Electors, which includes the names and addresses of eligible voters. We also collect information from publicly available data sources, and through voter outreach activities, such as door-to-door canvassing, voter contact phone calls, and text messages.
We also obtain other information that you choose to give us. You may do so in a variety of ways, including:
When you visit our website for the purpose of becoming involved as a volunteer or donor.
When you subscribe to our communications, such as email updates, newsletters or text message alerts.
If you register at an event or small gathering.
If you complete a registration or contribution form either electronically or on paper.
If you complete any other form on a Contract with Langley website, including online petitions.
It's also possible that your information could be provided to us by a volunteer or friend who thinks you would be interested in getting involved with or hearing from the Contract With Langley.
The information we collect may include:
Contact and identification information, such as your name, address, telephone numbers, e-mail address and social media contacts.
Contribution information such as date and amount of your contribution.
Financial information that we need to process your contribiution if made via cheque or e-transfer.
Information you share about your voting preferences or issues that you have communicated to us about.
We use your personal information to communicate with you about the Contract With Langley and its activities, as well as to provide you with news and information. We use your financial information to process your contributions. If you have been a contributor in the past, we may contact you again to seek your financial support.
We don't sell personal information under any circumstance.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We use physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to prevent unauthorized use, sharing, loss and theft of information.
For example, for information provided online, our website contains security measures in order to protect against the unauthorized disclosure, loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. We also implement measures such as SSL encryption on sensitive information.
You may update the information we have by e-mailing us at email@example.com, or by writing to us at the address below. If you have subscribed to receive information by email, you may unsubscribe by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email message.
Most of the messages sent by the Contract with Langley and its other political entities are exempt from the application of Canada’s anti-spam law which applies to commercial electronic messages sent to electronic addresses. This is because the electronic messages that we send are generally either those soliciting contrtibutions, which are specifically exempt under the law, or are messages of a political, not a commercial, character. As a best practice, we have an unsubscribe mechanism for our electronic messages, even where the law does not require us to do so.
Our website contains links to a limited number of other websites including those for our provincial and territorial boards. The Contract With Langley isn't responsible for the content or the privacy policies of these websites.
