The North York Harvest Food Bank is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its donors, volunteers, employees, and other stakeholders. We value the trust of those with whom we deal, and of the public, and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat the information that you choose to share with us.
Defining Personal Information
Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. This information can include an individual's opinion or beliefs, as well as facts about, or related to, the individual.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE DO WE RENT, SELL OR TRADE NAMES, PHONE NUMBERS, OR EMAIL ADDRESSES FROM OUR MAILING LISTS.
The North York Harvest Food Bank does not automatically gather your personal information. You may anonymously access our website. Personal information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, e.g. contacting us via email, subscribing to our e-newsletters, making online donations, or participating in our Virtual Food Drive. In general, it will be obvious when the North York Harvest Food Bank is collecting your personal information because you will have to fill out a form.
Information Collected by Technology
The North York Harvest Food Bank collects some non-identifying information about visitors through standard web logs including IP address, browser type (e.g., Mozilla Firefox), and the domain name from which a visitor entered the site (e.g., www.google.com). An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We normally use this information in the aggregate to administer and improve our web site. The North York Harvest Food Bank does not attempt to link this information with the identity of the individual visiting our website, except when necessary to protect our service, site, visitors, or others.
We protect personal information using reasonable administrative and technical measures. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

Our site contains links to other Web sites. When you follow one of these links, you are entering another Web site for which the North York Harvest Food Bank has no responsibility. Please read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.
