Wellspring Calgary respects the privacy of all our members, donors, volunteers, facilitators, staff, committee members, supporters, and those who come to this website to learn more about Wellspring Calgary. As part of our commitment to you, we want to clarify why we may ask for your personal information (such as name, address, email address, history of illness, etc.)

We collect personal information in order to welcome you as members, volunteers, donors, facilitators, or supporters. We collect information to provide you with access to the newsletter and/or other email or mailed bulletins (as you choose), and to facilitate ongoing communication about our services.

Information is also gathered to keep program statistics, to contact you about cancelled programs, to keep track of waiting lists (and to let you know if a space frees up), to advise you of new programs, and to be accountable to those who support our services.

All of the personal information we collect is subject to security measures that include locked cabinets, password access, extremely limited access to the database, alarm systems and restricted access to offices. All statistical information used for reporting is aggregated and always anonymous. We will not share information with any third parties. We do not divulge information to other organizations or people who might wish access to our membership for the purposes of self or product promotion under any circumstances.

On occasion there are requests to undertake research projects with Wellspring Calgary members. These requests are first vetted by a program committee to measure benefits to members and further they must pass our rigorous ethics approval before they are considered. In the rare instances where research projects are pursued, please be assured we would not give out your name or contact information without first notifying you and obtaining your expressed consent.

We will honour any request you may have to access and/or review the personal information you have given to Wellspring Calgary in the course of your membership. Please let us know if you wish to do this.

If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy practices or if you do not wish to use your personal information in the ways outlined above, please do not hesitate to contact privacy@wellspringcalgary.ca.
