Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Protecting member / client privacy and the confidentiality of their information — over the Internet, on the telephone, or through the CAEP office – is fundamental to the way the CAEP does business. CAEP operates on the basis of a Privacy Policy and related procedures that guide the handling of the personal information collected. This privacy statement demonstrates the organization’s commitment to protecting the privacy of its members, partners and potential website visitors. This policy and related procedures are consistent with the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information (herein “CSA Model Code”) and applicable privacy legislation.

Privacy Statement

This policy deals only with personal information handled by CAEP.  Personal information is information about an identifiable individual, excluding business contact information. The following explains how CAEP handles personal information. CAEP reserves the right to change this policy and it may be updated periodically. These changes may affect our use of member information. Accordingly, members are advised to check for changes regularly.


CAEP is accountable for all personal information under its control. CAEP’s privacy officer is the administrator who is designated as responsible for CAEP’s privacy policy. Any questions about CAEP’s handling of personal information should be directed to the officer administrator.

Purpose of Personal Information

The purpose for which CAEP collects personal information will be identified at or before the time the information is collected. The CAEP may collect personal information for the purposes of:

  • Administering CAEP membership and providing member services;
  • Publishing in the Membership Directory online or in print;
  • Registering for CAEP events;
  • Purchasing various CAEP products or services including document certification or advertising space;
  • Processing and administering the above or other purposes as necessary;
  • Confirming that an organization or individual is a member;
  • Complying with any statutory requirements;
  • Recommending a member as a provider of a product/service; and
  • Where membership information is requested, in special circumstances, to offer a potential benefit to the membership and where there is no other cost-effective means of obtaining the benefit.

CAEP will not use personal information for any other purpose than identified at or before the time of collection.


CAEP seeks consent for all personal information it collects, uses and discloses through information provided to individuals prior to collection, or at the time of collection. If an individual voluntarily provides information, it has consented to the collection, use and disclosure of personally identifiable information as described in this privacy policy. As required by the CSA Model Code, CAEP will not use personal information for any purpose other than that for which the individual has consented. Should CAEP require personal information for a new purpose, it will contact the individual to seek consent for that new use.

Limits for Collecting, Using, Disclosing and Keeping Personal Information

CAEP does not collect, use or disclose personal information of individuals except when individuals give consent and provide the information on a voluntary basis. There may be occasions where more specific personal information is necessary for it to proceed with a request for information, or provide individuals with a product or service. In such cases, it will provide the member with a description on the information it needs. In all cases, CAEP limits the amount and type of information collected to only the personal information that is required to provide the individual with the requested information, product, or service. CAEP collects only information that is voluntarily provided by the member and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential.

CAEP does not sell or trade any personal information with third parties. CAEP may transfer information to service providers where information processing is outsourced by CAEP  in the course of its administrative procedures or member services in specific cases. Where personal information is transferred to a service provider for processing, we require the service provider to respect this Privacy Policy and we restrict them from using or disclosing personal information transferred to them for any purpose other than the provision of services to us.

Any personal information that CAEP retains is kept in such a manner as to ensure its security and confidentiality at all times.

Safeguarding Personal Information

CAEP  respects the privacy of its members, partners, potential website visitors and internet users and will protect that privacy as vigorously as possible. It stores personal information in electronic and physical files that are secure. Its security measures include secure locks on filing cabinets, and using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, intrusion detection and restricted access to records and to equipment, including computers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while CAEP strives to protect member personal information, it cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmit to it or received from it electronically. This is especially true for information transmitted to us via e-mail.

Accuracy of and Access to Personal Information Collected

CAEP makes every effort to keep personal information as accurate, complete, current and relevant as necessary for the identified purposes. The CAEP does not routinely update personal information.

CAEP makes readily available to individuals its Privacy Policy and related procedures for managing personal information. It provides access to the Privacy Policy and related procedures to individuals on the CAEP’s website and in written form on request. If it is not able to disclose all the personal information it holds on the member, it will give a reason for its inability to do so, unless prohibited by law.


Any questions or comments about CAEP’s handling of personal information should be directed to our administrator.
