*to provide various benefits to members, volunteers, donors, patrons and others;

The above collections, uses and disclosures are a reasonably necessary part of your relationship with MECS as a member, volunteer, donor or patron.
You may instruct MECS to refrain from using your personal information to contact you regarding fundraising or special events or programs being offered by MECS. In the event you advise MECS to stop using your personal information, MECS will not refuse you access to any program or service that you would otherwise have access to.


MECS will obtain your consent to collect, use or disclose personal information except where MECS is authorized or required by law to do so without consent.
Your consent can be express, implied or given through an authorized representative.
Consent may be provided orally, in writing, electronically, through inaction (such as when you fail to notify us that you do not wish your personal information collected/used/disclosed for various purposes after you have received notice of those purposes) or otherwise.
You may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal, contractual and other restrictions, provided that you give reasonable written notice of withdrawal of consent to MECS. On receipt of written notice of withdrawal of consent, MECS will inform you of the likely consequences of the withdrawal of consent, which may include the inability of MECS to provide certain programs and services for which that information is necessary.

Limits for using, disclosing and retaining personal information

Your personal information will only be used or disclosed for the purposes set out above and as authorized by law.
Safeguarding personal information
MECS protects the personal information in its custody or control by making reasonable security arrangements to prevent unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal or similar risks. MECS employees are trained to protect your personal information. MECS’ board of directors is actively involved in the running of the organization and therefore may from time to time have access to your personal information to carry out the operating of the organization.

Accuracy of Personal Information

MECS will make a reasonable effort to ensure that personal information it is using or disclosing is accurate and complete. In most cases, MECS will rely on you to ensure that information, such as your address and telephone number, are correct.
If you advise MECS of an inaccuracy or incompleteness of personal information, MECS will amend the information as required. If appropriate, MECS will send the amended information to third parties to whom the information has been disclosed.
