At Egg Farmers of Alberta (“EFA”), we are committed to protecting your privacy and support a general policy of openness about how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information.
The personal information collected may include, but is not restricted to, the following:
Your personal information will be used only for the purposes for which you voluntary provide it to us.
These purposes include sending you, by way of e-mail or mailings, materials that you have requested such as newsletters, updates, recipe books, health and nutrition tips, educational materials, and other information items. You may ask us to stop sending you such materials at any time. We may also use the information that you voluntarily provide to gain a better understanding of egg-related consumption habits, and to improve Our Website, as well as our educational and information materials.
The information that you provide to us through contest entries may be shared with EFA’s marketing and promotions agency for the sole purpose of administering the contest, and to generate aggregate research about egg-related consumption habits.
We will not sell, license, trade, or rent your personal information to or with third parties.
A limited amount of a contest winner’s information (ie: first name, city and province of residence) may be posted on Our Website, but only after we have obtained the winner’s explicit consent to do so.
EFA reserves the right to disclose personal information to a third party if a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order legally requires or authorizes us to do so.
EFA collects personal information about you only when you voluntarily provide it. Typically, we will seek consent for the use or disclosure of your personal information at the time of collection. In certain circumstances, consent may be sought after the information has been collected, but before use (ie: when we want to use the information for a purpose not previously identified).
The form of consent that we seek, whether it is express or implied, will largely depend on the sensitivity of the personal information and the reasonable expectations of the individual in the circumstances.
We will not, as a condition of the supply of a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of information beyond that which is required to fulfill the purposes for which the information is being provided by you. However, your voluntary provision of additional information helps us to improve and expand the educational and information services that we offer, and to conduct research about egg-related consumption.
You may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, by contacting us.
EFA makes all commercially responsible efforts to ensure that the personal information that you provide to us is protected against loss and unauthorized access. This protection applies in relation to information stored in both electronic and hard copy form. Access to your personal information is restricted to select employees or representatives. In addition, EFA employs generally accepted information security techniques, such as firewalls, and access control procedures to protect personal information against loss and unauthorized access.
EFA retains your personal information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, and to comply with applicable laws.
For example, the information that you provide to us through contest entries is retained only for the duration of the contest, and any further period required to generate aggregate research about egg-related consumption. When you provide information about egg consumption or related matters, we aggregate the information before using it for research purposes, and do not retain your personal information once aggregation is complete. The information that you provide to us when you request materials from us is retained only for as long as is required to process your request.
Upon your request, we will make all commercially reasonable efforts to make the personal information that we hold about you available to you. In certain limited circumstances, such as where the information is prohibitively costly to provide, the information contains references to other individuals, or the information cannot be displayed for legal or security reasons, we may not be able to make all of the information that you have requested available to you. You may request access to your personal information by contacting us.
You can help us maintain the accuracy of your personal information by contacting us and notifying us of any changes to this information.
