Saskatchewan New Democratic Party Privacy and Confidentiality Policy

Version 1.0 - Effective March 23, 2018

1. Introduction

The Saskatchewan New Democratic Party (“Saskatchewan’s NDP”) is committed to respecting and

protecting all personal information entrusted to the Party. The protection and security of individual’s

privacy is a value taken very seriously by the Party.

This privacy policy (the " Privacy and Confidentiality Policy ") is a statement of principles and guidelines

concerning the protection of personal information collected, used and disclosed by Saskatchewan’s NDP.

Our policy is in compliance with Canadian Standards Association privacy principles, as well as our

responsibilities and obligations under the Elections Act, 1996.

2. Collecting Personal Information

“Personal information” is information about an identifiable individual. It includes information such as your

name, email address, address, telephone number, date of birth, and financial information.

Elections Saskatchewan provides registered political parties with voter data, which includes names,

addresses and other personal information. Saskatchewan’s NDP may use voter data solely for electoral

purposes that are directly associated with electing representatives to the Saskatchewan Legislative

Assembly (the “Primary Purposes”), including:

- Communicating with voters, including for soliciting contributions; and

- Recruiting party members.

Personal information which is not voter data may be collected and used for other purposes as may be

identified at the time of collection, as well as secondary purposes that are consistent with the primary

purpose of collection and as permitted under this Privacy and Confidentiality Policy.

We collect the personal information that you choose to provide to us when you become a contributor, a

member, when you voluntarily subscribe to our communications, when you register for an event or sign

a petition either in person or online, or when you complete any of the forms on saskndp.ca.

3. Consent

Voter data is subject to collection, use and disclosure under the terms of the Elections Act, 1996, and is

not subject to an opt-out process.

If you submit your email address and/or personal information through saskndp.ca or otherwise provide

your personal information to Saskatchewan’s NDP directly, we assume that we have your implied consent

to our collection and use of personal information for the purposes of that matter.

You may revoke your consent to our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information, subject

to legal restrictions and upon reasonable written notice. Your withdrawal of consent to the collection, use

and disclosure of your personal information may impact the ability of Saskatchewan’s NDP ability to

communicate with you.

4. Using Personal Information

We use your personal information to communicate with you about Saskatchewan’s NDP, to provide you

with news and information about the NDP and our activities, and to contact you about your past and

future contributions and membership.

We may share your information internally within our provincial organization, including constituency

associations and committees.

We use your financial information to process your contributions. We are also required by the Elections

Act, 1996 to provide Elections Saskatchewan with information related to the contributions you make to

us.

5. Disclosure

In general, Saskatchewan’s NDP does not disclose your personal information to third parties without your

consent. Saskatchewan’s NDP may disclose your personal information:

(a) To NDP affiliates for the Purposes set out in this Privacy Policy;

(b) To a government institution, based on reasonable grounds to believe that the government

institution has lawful authority to obtain the information;

(c) To comply with a subpoena, warrant, order or law compelling the disclosure of the information;

and

(d) Where otherwise permitted by law or by this Privacy Policy.

6. Protecting Your Personal Information

Your privacy is very important to us. We protect your personal information by employing rigorous security

systems and strict access controls in order to safeguard your personal information from unauthorized

access, disclosure, alteration, or misuse. Our protection of personal information includes security

measures, including the secure storage of physical files; firewalls and encryption technology for personal

information stored on our computer systems; and training and/or signed agreements for employees and

other persons who may use personal information in accordance with this Privacy and Confidentiality

Policy.

We may engage third parties to provide us with services from time-to-time, such as hosting servers and

websites, processing online contributions, or providing technical or communications services. When
