OUR COMMITMENT TO CLUB MEMBERS
COMMUNICATING WITHIN THE CLUB
On joining NOTL Newcomers Club, members are asked to provide their name, street address, phone number and email address.
This information is collected for two purposes:
- To maintain a directory of members, allowing us to deliver the monthly Newcomers Club Newsletter to you, and to contact you regarding other matters related to the Club or your membership.
- To make members’ information available to other NOTL Newcomers Club members to facilitate contacts and friendships within the community, which is in keeping with one of the Club’s main purposes.
The collected information is available to our membership only, and will not be distributed outside the organization, and will not be used by anyone for contacting members regarding anything other than NOTL Newcomers Club matters.
PHOTOS, VIDEOS AND WEBSITE
Members are also asked to permit the Club to use photos and video footage in which they may be shown, in Club publications, illustrations and the like. Only first names are used in captions or tags of images, and names are not included in website captions.
MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY, NEWSLETTERS AND OTHER COMMUNICATIONS
The Membership Directory and monthly Newsletter are only circulated among the NOTL Newcomers Club membership. The software used to circulate the Newsletter and email to the general membership is governed by Canadian privacy laws, and requires us to have your permission to contact you. The membership form provides the opportunity to grant or withhold permission to share you contact details with members.
ADVERTISEMENTS AND PROMOTIONS
NOTL Newcomers does not accept advertisements or any other form of promotion or announcement from other organizations, businesses or individuals.
We do not share the information in the Directory with anyone who is not a member of the Club, and we will not use the information in the Directory to contact members about matters that are not related to Club activities.
The Newcomers Club does not promote politics, businesses, charities, organizations or outside communities in order to maintain impartiality and non partisanship as much as possible. Under no circumstances is the membership list to be used or shared for solicitation or recruitment purposes.
