Privacy Policy

The Circle understands that the privacy and security of your personal information is important to you. We are committed to ensuring that the information you share with us is recorded accurately, retained securely, and used only according to your wishes.

Names, addresses, or other personal information collected by The Circle will only be used in accordance with The Circle’s Privacy Policy, and will not be disclosed to any third party.

What information do we collect?

During the course of our relationship we may collect some personal information. This may include your name, street and email addresses, phone and fax numbers and credit card information. We may also have a record of your attendance at Circle events. We sometimes have more detailed information from prospective members, volunteers and others who have been dedicated and long-term supporters of The Circle.

When do we collect information?

Most of this information is collected when register or inquire about membership, join The Circle, or attend a Circle sponsored event. It may come to us through your phone call, mail or email, or when you visit one of our offices. It may be provided by a friend suggesting that we contact you.

Why do we need your information?

We need this information to mail newsletters, to contact you about changes in schedules or upcoming events, and to notify you of special opportunities on behalf of The Circle or its members: in short, to provide the high level of service you expect from us.

We will communicate with you or send you information that we believe to be of interest to you, unless you request no communications. We are committed to ensuring that Circle members, friends and volunteers do not receive an unreasonable number of letters, emails or phone calls.

How do we manage personal information?

Only authorized personnel have access to personal information and it will not be disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected without your prior consent. Manual and technological safeguards are in place to ensure proper security.

On an ongoing basis The Circle will ensure that the Privacy Policy guidelines are being followed by all staff and The Circle develops, updates, and reviews information protection guidelines and controls to ensure ongoing information security.

The Circle website provides links to some third party sites. As we do not control those sites, The Circle encourages users to learn about their particular privacy policies.

Can I get more information?

You have the right to access your personal information held by The Circle. Upon request, The Circle will, within a reasonable time period, tell you what personal information it has, what it is being used for and to whom it has been disclosed if applicable, within the time period for which records are available.

If your information changes or if you no longer wish to receive communication from us, please contact us.
