General Statement of Privacy and Protection of Personal Information
RPCC takes your privacy and security of personal information very seriously. We have provided a secure environment and this strict Policy that describes the limited ways the information is used and the limited access to such information.
This Policy covers the treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and other information gathered by RPCC when you are using or accessing the Website. This Policy also covers RPCC’s treatment of any Personal Information that RPCC may share with its business partners or other third parties under very limited circumstances.
This Policy does not apply to the general practices and treatment of information by third parties that RPCC does not own or control, including but not limited to any third party websites or services that you elect to access through the Website or via a link from the Website (“Third Party Website”), or to individuals that RPCC does not manage or control. While we attempt to facilitate access or link only to those Third Party Websites that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third Party Websites. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Website you access.
Finally, this Policy does not cover any Personal Information you send to RPCC via any non-secured mode of communications such as email, instant messenger or Twitter, as communications via these methods may be subject to interception, loss, or alteration. While we welcome your comments and suggestions, we encourage you to carefully examine what Personal Information you send to RPCC via these methods.
No Collection of Personal Information as a Matter of Course
RPCC does not, as a matter of course, gather any of your Personal Information while you are using the Website, unless you are asked to provide such information, for example, when registering to become a Member. Where you have provided such information, it will only be used for the stated purpose. The Personal Information collected and its uses are described in the next section.
Personal Information Collected and its Uses
The information we collect when you apply for a Membership or register for a RPCC Event or Activity is limited to your name, home and/or business addresses and phone numbers, and email address(es), birth date and gender. We use the information to determine your qualifications to become a Member and for the purpose of communicating with you regarding your Membership and regarding Events and Activities. We use this information only to better understand the makeup and needs of the Membership in order to better serve the Membership.
Aggregated Information and its Uses
The information regarding activities mentioned in the previous section as well as certain demographic information may be aggregated for certain uses. This aggregated information in no way identifies you personally. RPCC may use such aggregated and anonymous information to develop new and/or more appropriate services and products. In addition, anonymous information may be used for statistical analysis, for marketing purposes and content information to users. Additional uses for aggregate information can be found in the section entitled “Limited Gathering of Information for Statistical and Security Purposes” further in this Policy.
Security of Information
RPCC uses only industry best practices (physical, electronic, and procedural) in keeping any data collected secure. In addition, RPCC uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Website, and these third parties have been selected for their high standards of security. For example, RPCC uses GoDaddy for hosting of the Website, a recognized industry leader in security.
Limited Gathering of Information for Statistical and Security Purposes
RPCC automatically collects certain information using a third-party analytics program, Google Analytics, to help us understand how our users use the Website, but none of this information identifies you personally. For example, each time you visit the Website or otherwise use the Website, we automatically collect your IP address, browser and computer type, access times, the web page from which you came, and the web page(s) you access (as applicable). Furthermore, RPCC may also collect aggregate, non-personally identifiable information data through web forms or online surveys. We use information collected in these manners only to better understand your needs and the needs of the Website users in the aggregate. RPCC also makes use of information gathered for statistical purposes to keep track of the number of visits to the Website and which pages on the Website with a view to introducing improvements and better serving the Members and users of the Website.
Your IP address and other relevant information may be used in order to trace any fraudulent or criminal activity, or any activity in violation of the Terms and Conditions.
Non-disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties

Moreover, RPCC does not sell any information regarding its users to third parties. Only the representatives, subcontractors, and officers of RPCC are responsible for the management and development of the Website, and only these individuals have access to the information collected there. These representatives, subcontractors, and officers all have been instructed to comply with the Policy.

Moneris has our permission to store, on behalf of RPCC, the data pertaining to the executed transactions by Purchasers (including credit card information) with the goal of ensuring a secure method of payment and proof of purchase archive, allowing for the protection of Purchasers, and for follow-up as needed. This transactional data may be used for validation and registration purposes of Purchasers, and to trace any fraudulent activities if necessary.
