Personal Information Protection Policy
Working Gear Clothing Society provides support for our member booking agencies who refer us work ready clients for donations of clothing and footwear.
As providing this service involves the collection, use and disclosure of some personal information about our customers and members, protecting their personal information is a high priority.
We have always respected our customers and members privacy and safeguarded their personal information, and are committed to protecting personal information as a result of British Columbia’s Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA). PIPA, which came into effect on January 1, 2004, sets out the ground rules for how B.C. businesses and not-for-profit organizations may collect, use and disclose personal information.
Working Gear Clothing Society tracks information only to identify and log attendance, as well as to track the provision of clothing and footwear for use in summary format internally and as required by CRA and any sponsoring organizations. We will only handle their personal information in a manner that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances.
Our privacy commitment includes ensuring the accuracy, confidentiality, and security of our customers’ and members’ personal information and allowing them to request access to, and correction of, their personal information.
