Why we collect personal information.

If you are a BC Taekwondo Association member or client, the BC Taekwondo Association has some basic information about you. We understand that some of this information is private, which is why we collect personal information only for the following purposes:

  1. To establish and maintain a responsible relationship with you and to provide ongoing service. For example, when you apply as a member, we collect information that allows us to verify your status and location. This ensures standards are met for the Association, in recommendations and so that we can properly serve you in matters requiring communication or physical delivery.
  2. To understand your needs and preferences. We maintain a record of the services you receive from us, and we may ask for additional information so that we can serve you better.
  3. To manage and develop our operations. For example, we analyze member usage of our services to help us manage them efficiently and plan for future growth.
  4. To meet legal and regulatory requirements.

When do we disclose personal information?

There are a variety of circumstances where we may need to disclose some personal information about our members or colleagues. Here are some examples:

  1. We may disclose a member's personal information to a person who, in the reasonable judgment of the BC Taekwondo Association, is seeking the information as an agent of the member.
  2. We may disclose a member's personal information to a public authority or agent of a public authority, if in the reasonable judgment of the BC Taekwondo Association, it appears that there is imminent danger to life or property which could be avoided or minimized by disclosure of the information. If a member calls 911, we will provide the member's name, address and telephone number to the emergency agency.
  3. In conjunction with special offers or programs, we may disclose members' personal information to our program partners, or to third-party agents responsible for administering such offers or programs. Any such disclosure is made on a confidential basis with the member's express consent.
