Our role is to inform and consult with our members and the broader WPG community on key regional, civic and neighbourhood issues and to present local perspectives to all levels of government, media and other parties (including other neighbourhood associations and service providers working with WPGRA under a contract which honours this policy).  To fulfil that role we need: contact information for our residents, personal insights and input on matters of import to the community, and sufficient data to prepare and present statistical analytics in support of each viewpoint we present. Your participation implies consent.

We will not use your personal information for any other purpose without your prior written consent, unless required by law.

We collect data in person, electronically and by mail, as circumstances dictate.  We also use Facebook and our website contains links to other sites.  They are not hosted on our server. We encourage each user to examine the terms of service and privacy policies of each external site prior to use.

How Disclosed:

Unless disclosed to service providers under contract with WPGRA to provide statistical analysis, distribution of notices/surveys and the like or as otherwise directed by you in writing, the personal information we collect is disclosed to third parties only for the purposes outlined above and only in aggregate form (without identifying any individual).

When Removed:

We retain personal information for one year following any decision based on its use or longer if required by law.  Recipients of emails from WPGRA who wish to unsubscribe may do so by contacting the Privacy Officer.
