Privacy Statement:

The following online privacy policy is to protect and secure the personal information you provide to our organization online.


Kawartha Lakes Pregnancy Centre provides this online policy to make sure you are aware of our security practices and to inform you of the way your information is collected and used. We also provide you with the opportunity to remove your name from our mailing list, if you desire to do so.

The website security padlock symbol in the address bar lets you know that information between your web browser and the server is encrypted so that other people (like hackers and the web server) cannot snoop on what information is being sent back and forth. 

Information we Collect:

We collect, use, disclose, and protect the personal information of our website users. There are two different ways in which we collect information from visitors on our website:

  • From persons interested in requesting information or materials from our organization we only collect your name and email address.
  •  From our online donations, we collect name, email address, city, province, postal code, and telephone number, and the credit card number and expiration date.

We will only use your personal information in accordance with our policy unless otherwise required by applicable law. We take steps to ensure that the personal information that we collect about you is adequate, relevant, not excessive, and used for limited purposes.

Privacy laws in Ontario define “personal information” as recorded information about you as an individual, which includes information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person. For our purposes, the information about you that we
will be gathering through our website is your name and email address, and anything that you choose to disclose to us in your email. 

The Website may include links to third-party websites (Canada Helps for donations), plug-ins, services, social networks, or applications.

We do not control these third-party websites, and we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit. When Kawartha Lakes Pregnancy Centre provides links or references to other websites, no inference or assumption should be made and no representation should be inferred that Kawartha Lakes Pregnancy Centre is connected with, operates or controls these websites. Any approved link must not represent in any way, either explicitly or by implication, that you have received the endorsement, sponsorship or support of any Kawartha Lakes Pregnancy
Centre site or endorsement, sponsorship or support of the ministry of Kawartha Lakes Pregnancy Centre, including its respective employees, volunteers, agents or directors.
