Specific information relating to your organization such as the organization’s name, staff names, contact persons or other identifying information will not be shared. However, data collected through surveys, programs, services and events may be shared with PLC’s stakeholders, but such information will be made anonymous as far as you and/or your organization’s identity is concerned.
There are a couple of circumstances where we can disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent:
- Investigating a breach of contract, or the breaking of provincial or federal law;

Participation in PLC Events, Workshops, Learning Experiences and Series
When you register for an event with PLC your information is stored in our membership software, Wild Apricot, so that we may send you reminders, updates and follow-ups regarding that event. You will also be sent an invoice if it is a paid event. Copies of this transaction are also sent via email to PLC’s offices. This information does not include credit card numbers.
We use a third-party payment processor that validates your card when you make an online payment. The only information that comes back to PLC is whether the card is declined or approved for the purchase.
PLC uses Wild Apricot in order to manage our contacts, client organizations, newsletter subscribers, and event registrants. There is no fee to become a member.
