Personal information

Personal information is any information that can be used alone or together with other available information to identify a specific individual. Contact information and certain other publicly available information, such as your name, address, and telephone number as published in telephone directories, are not considered personal information. However, we want you to be aware of what kind of information we are likely to ask you for when you contact us. This normally includes your name, address, city, province, postal code, phone, fax and e-mail.

Privacy practices

Parachute respects your privacy. We do not sell, rent, or trade the information we collect. We collect, use, and disclose personal information only for the purpose of processing mailings, keeping you informed about our activities and to ask for your support in our mission to prevent injuries. You can expect that we will take care to protect any information we collect from you, and that we will only use or disclose it with your consent, or as required by law. We offer numerous privacy options, including the option to limit or opt-out of future contact.

Protecting your information

Our employees sign confidentiality agreements and we have put safeguards in place to minimize the possibility that the information we hold is accessed, disclosed or shared more widely than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. We also use reasonable business practices to maintain the integrity of this information and to prevent it from loss, theft or inappropriate access. Individuals may access their personal information at any time to ensure that it is correct, or to edit it.
