This “Privacy Statement” summarizes what personal information we collect, and how we use and disclose this information. To view our complete Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”), please click here. By using our website (“Website”), you signify your consent to the terms of our Privacy Statement. If you do not agree with any terms of this Privacy Statement, please do not use this Website or submit any personal information to us.

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Statement at any time. We will reflect any such modifications to this Privacy Statement on our Website. Your continued use of the Website after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of this Privacy Statement, as revised.

What Personal Information We Collect

Personal information is information about an identifiable individual (“Personal Information”). IFCJ Canada collects Personal Information when you voluntarily provide it through our Website, or when you provide it to us through other means. For example, we may collect Personal Information when you:

  • contact us through email, telephone, mail, or other means;
  • make a donation to us;
  • subscribe to one of our publications;
  • register for a retreat or conference; or
  • interact with our content on third-party sites or platforms.

The Personal Information we may collect will depend on the nature of your interaction with us, and may include your full name; contact information, such as your address, telephone number, or email address; date of birth; credit card and bank account; information about your religion; photographs or videos; or any other Personal Information that you choose to submit to us.

IFCJ Canada may also acquire Personal Information by renting mailing lists of prospective donors from other organizations, which we do in compliance with the requirements of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.


We only collect, use and disclose Personal Information with your knowledge and consent, except in certain limited circumstances. Your consent may be expressed orally, electronically or in writing, or it may be implied. You have the right at any time to withdraw or cancel your consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of your Personal Information by contacting our Privacy Officer. Withdrawals of consent only take effect from the date of cancellation. They cannot be retroactive. You should understand that, in many cases, our collection, use, or disclosure of Personal Information is a valid condition of service, which means that we need your Personal Information in order to provide a particular service, such as to process your donation or fulfill your subscription. We will let you know if your withdrawal could have any consequences, such as our being unable to provide you with goods or services.
