Can Praxis EAL Privacy Policy



Can Praxis EAL (“Can Praxis”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal information. This privacy policy contains information on how we collect and manage your personal information when you visit our Website at (the “Website”) and provides information about your privacy rights and how this policy complies with the Personal Information Protection Act 2003 c P-6.5 (the “Act”).

By submitting personal information to Can Praxis or its service providers and agents (collectively referred to as Can Praxis, “we”, “us” or “our” in the Privacy Policy), you agree that we may collect, use and disclose such personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as permitted or required by law.

Subject to any applicable legal or contractual requirements, you may refuse or withdraw your consent to one or more identified purposes at any time by contacting us.

If you refuse or withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide you, or continue to provide you, with certain services or information.


Can Praxis is a registered Canadian charity. We provide mental health programming and engage in a variety of services to facilitate fundraising in Canada.

Can Praxis collects and processes personal information through:
• our website for donors, which offers a user-friendly way for individuals to donate to Can Praxis; and
• the use of software tools and online payment processing technologies to collect donations and launch fundraising events online.


Personal information means any information about an identifiable individual. It does not include personal information where all references to the identity of the relevant individual have been removed (anonymous personal information). Personal information that Can Praxis collects includes both personal information you provide as well as automatically gathered personal information.

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal information about you which we have grouped together as follows:

• Identity Personal information includes:
o username or similar identifier,
o first name, last name, title, company you work for, and in the case of individuals representing charities using our service, your job title, role and/or level of experience.
• Contact Personal information includes address, email address and telephone numbers.
• Financial Personal information includes bank account, credit card details and securities related information in the event you donate securities or mutual funds to Can Praxis (including your mutual fund or security name, number of units, investment firm, account number, financial advisor name, email, phone number.)

• Marketing and Communications Personal information includes your preferences in receiving marketing from us and your communication preferences.

We also collect, use and share aggregated personal information such as statistical or demographic information. When information is aggregated and not “about an identifiable individual”, the information is not personal information for the purposes of the Act. For example, we may aggregate your Personal Usage information to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect aggregated personal information with identifiable data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined information as personal information, which will only be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Act.

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal information about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric information). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

This Privacy Policy is applicable only to this Site and does not apply to any third party websites or to other companies or persons. This Site may contain links to, and media and other content from, other sites. Because of the dynamic media capabilities of this Site, it may not be clear to you which links are embedded in this Site and which are embedded in third-party media or content. Kindful cannot and does not guarantee the privacy policies and practices of any third party. Kindful does not control, operate, or endorse any information, products, or services of any third-party websites that may be reached through links from this Site. The use of any personal information provided by you to such third party will be governed by that party’s privacy policy.

TRAIL SOFTWARE MAY CHANGE THIS PRIVACY POLICY FROM TIME TO TIME. THE REVISED POLICY WILL BE POSTED ON THIS SITE.

Information we collect and how we may use it

If you are a customer of Kindful, we collect certain information about you in order to provide you with our donor management system and/or online payment service (the “Service”). When you register for the Service we will request some personal information such as your name and email address, and information about your organization such as the name of your organization, Tax ID, mailing address, and tax designation. Furthermore, if you are opening a merchant account, Kindful may also obtain information about you from third party sources, including, without limitation, consumer reporting agencies. This information is used to contact you about the services on our Site for which you have expressed an interest. As part of the Service, we may also collect donor information on behalf of your organization. Except as may be expressly set forth herein, we will not use any donor information collected on your behalf for any purpose other than to provide the Service. Any tax or financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the Service. If you purchase the Service by credit card, this information will be transmitted to our credit card merchant account provider, and may be forwarded to your credit card provider. We do not store credit card information.

If you are a donor for a Kindful customer, we collect certain information from you in order to process your donation (“Donor Information”). Kindful will use Donor Information during the course of providing the Service to such Kindful customer. Kindful may also use Donor Information at an aggregate level for internal business analyses and fraud prevention. During the course of providing the Service to Kindful customers, Kindful may disclose Donor Information to banks, processors, card associations, and other financial institutions that are involved in the course of processing or screening the transaction applicable to the Donor Information.

We may use personal information for internal purposes to provide you with other products and services, or to contact you regarding administrative notices or communications relevant to you on this Site. In addition, we may use personal information to provide or improve products or services that you have requested.

Please note that personal information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about a group or category of users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. This Privacy Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection, use, or our ability to sell such aggregate information.

Additional Limits on Use of Google User Data: Notwithstanding anything else in this Privacy Policy, the following types of your Google data will be subject to these additional restrictions:

  • We will only use access to read Gmail message bodies (including attachments), metadata, headers, and settings to display emails to authorized users of Kindful and will not transfer this Gmail data to others unless doing so is necessary to provide and improve these features, comply with applicable law, or as part of a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets.

  • We will not use this Gmail data for serving advertisements.

  • We will not allow humans to read this data unless we have your affirmative agreement for specific messages, doing so is necessary for security purposes such as investigating abuse, to comply with applicable law, or for our internal operations and even then only when the data have been aggregated and anonymized.

When we disclose your information

Kindful takes your privacy very seriously. The information we collect is used to provide the Service, and, in general, is not shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes. However, there are times when it may be advantageous for Kindful to make certain personal information about you available to companies that Kindful has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for Kindful to provide products and services to you on our behalf. These companies may help us process information, deliver products or services to you, provide customer service, manage and enhance user data, assess your interest in our products and services, or conduct user research or satisfaction surveys. We may also disclose your personal information, if you have authorized us to act on your behalf to initiate the creation of a merchant account for the purpose of accepting donations by credit card.

At times we may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.

In addition, Kindful may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of its assets in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy. In such an event, personal information may be one of the assets transferred.

How we protect your personal information

Kindful takes precautions to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission that can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse.

Your California Privacy Rights

Residents of the State of California, under a provision of the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed personal information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that gives either an Opt-out or Opt-in choice for use of your personal information by third parties (such as advertisers) for marketing purposes, the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

Kindful qualifies for the alternative option; it has a comprehensive privacy policy and provides you with details on how you may either Opt-out or Opt-in to the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your personal information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you are a California resident and request information about how to exercise your third party disclosure choices you must send a request to
