We use your personal information for the following reasons:
Many front line workers are concerned about professional retaliation or disciplinary action for talking publicly about their experiences. We will never identify a source, or a member of our advisory or steering committees, without first obtaining their explicit permission to do so. We will store any communications from confidential sources securely, and limit access to trusted members of Protect Our Province BC who have signed a non-disclosure agreement.
Our use of third party apps for collecting personal information, communicating with members and supporters, and processing donations means that in some cases your personal information may be accessible to other organizations.
We do our best to keep data sharing to a minimum, to collect as little personal information as possible, and to periodically review third party privacy policies to ensure our partners are using personal information in a fair, transparent, and reasonable way.
