We collect a range of personal information for the purposes of administering and managing the programs and activities the Centre provides.
Information collected such as names, addresses and phone numbers is primarily collected on our membership form. Any information outside this scope will not be collected without permission.
Names and addresses (email or postal) are entered on our membership database as part of our Constitutional requirements.

This will be handled with discretion and sensitivity.
We may from time to time contact members via email or post to inform them of our Centre activities. Members at any time can request to be taken off our mailing address list.

We recognize the essential right of individuals to have their information administered in ways which they would reasonably expect – protected on one hand, and made accessible to them on the other. We ensure members and individuals have access to information held about them and to correct it if it’s inaccurate, incomplete, misleading or out of date.
