2. Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

If you donate to the MREA Shelter Foundation, we may need to collect certain contact and payment information to process your donation and to provide you with an income tax receipt. We may, with your consent, disclose certain information to the public for recognition purposes. We may be required by law to disclose information about MREA Shelter Foundation donors to the Canada Revenue Agency to verify compliance with tax-related obligations.

We also may use or disclose personal information if we believe that doing so is necessary:

  • to comply with applicable law, a court order, warrant, request from government or law enforcement, or other legal process;
  • to investigate, prevent, or take action involving illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of professional standards, or threats to property or physical safety of any person; or
  • to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

3. Safeguards and Storage of Personal Information

MREA applies reasonable administrative, physical and technical safeguards to protect personal information in its control.

Personal information is stored using secure, access-restricted systems, which may reside on MREA servers, or on the servers of our service providers. Personal information processed by service providers may be transferred to and stored in other countries, such as the United States, and could therefore be accessed by courts, governments, and law enforcement agencies in those countries where required by law.
