Article 1.01 - PRIVACY
It is the policy of the International Council of Police Representative Associations (ICPRA) to respect and safeguard the privacy of our members. While the ICPRA does not engage in activities of a commercial character, we are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information in a manner that meets or exceeds the requirements of Federal and Provincial privacy laws.
The ICPRA only collects personal information concerning our members in order to distribute our magazines and bulletins regarding the association and the activities we conduct on their behalf.
The ICPRA collects personal information directly from our members, or from our member police associations. We limit the personal information we maintain on file about our members to names and addresses.
ICPRA only uses personal information to mail ICPRA publications. The ICPRA and our publisher, CBU Publications, retain BMR Direct as our agents to provide secure and confidential mailings of ICPRA publications to ICPRA members. BMR Direct specializes in mailing list treatment and has signed a confidentiality agreement with ICPRA and CBU.
The ICPRA does not disclose personal information to anyone. The ICPRA does not enter into any programs or services which require disclosure of member information.
ICPRA uses appropriate safeguards and comprehensive security controls that are appropriate to the sensitivity of personal information. Each of our employees are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all personal information to which they have access, and are required to sign agreements to keep your personal information confidential. ICPRA maintains strict procedures governing the handling and storage of personal information.
