The privacy principles and procedures set forth below are intended to tell you how we collect, use, and distribute user information via our primary public website (www.ncsa.ca). This statement also applies generally to all websites operated by Native Counselling Services of Alberta (‘NCSA’) and its affiliates. This statement does not cover information collected from sources other than NCSA websites.
Specific NCSA Sites and Services
NCSA offers a wide variety of products and services. We encourage you to review the privacy statements for the sites we are linked to, and the services and products that you use. Unless more-specifically addressed (or to the extent otherwise provided) in those external privacy statements, the terms of this General Privacy Statement govern your interaction with NCSA.
Types and Uses of Personal Information
If you use this website, personally identifiable information about you may be collected and processed by NCSA employees. In general, we only collect information (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and type of business) when you knowingly provide it to us. Additionally, NCSA may automatically collect or process personally identifiable data (such as your Internet domain or IP address) as part of the operation of this website or during the course of your activities on, or use of, this website. In nearly all cases this data may be collected or processed by, and transferred to, NCSA facilities in Canada and in other countries where NCSA does business; the data is then subject to the legal systems of those countries. By using this website (which resides in part on servers located in Canada), you unambiguously consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of all personal data. If you do not consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of such information, please discontinue use of this website.
Sharing with Other NCSA Companies
We share much of our data, including personally identifiable information about you, with our affiliates throughout the world. To the extent that these entities have access to your information, they will follow privacy practices no less protective than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed by applicable law.
How Personal Information Is Shared With Third-Parties
NCSA will not sell, trade, or disclose the user’s personally identifiable information to third parties that want to market products to the user without the users’ consent. However, NCSA may disclose information to third parties assisting us in carrying out transactions or providing a service (e.g., packaging, sending and delivering purchases and information to you, clearing credit card transactions, or performing statistical analyses of our services), or in connection with merger and acquisition discussions. Additionally, NCSA may disclose information when required by subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process, or in response to activities that are unlawful or a violation of NCSA rules for use of the website, or to protect and defend the rights or property of NCSA.
NCSA has implemented technological and operational security processes to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or unintentional destruction. While no security measure can guarantee against compromise, NCSA regularly reviews and updates its security measures in an effort to provide appropriate security for all information held by NCSA.
Modifications to Statement
NCSA reserves the right to change, modify, or update this statement at any time without notice. We indicate the date of the current statement below, so you know when it was last updated.

NCSA wants to maintain only accurate information about users of the site. You can request individual information that has been gathered about you by contacting NCSA. Upon receipt of appropriate identification information, NCSA will provide you with access to the personally identifiable information that it maintains about your use of NCSA websites or which you have supplied to NCSA via the NCSA website.

NCSA takes children’s privacy seriously. NCSA asks children under the age of 13 not to send any personally identifiable information to NCSA websites without the consent of their parents or guardians. NCSA encourages all parents and guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of personal information on the Internet. NCSA will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose to third parties any personal information collected from children, and we are committed to complying with applicable laws and requirements.
We provide links to third party sites. Since we do not control these websites, we encourage you to review the privacy statement posted on these (and all) third party sites.
