Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation (JPCHF) is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its employees, donors, sponsors, volunteers, and other stakeholders. We value the trust of our stakeholders, partners and the public at large. JPCHF recognizes that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat the information that is shared with us.
“All staff” means JPCHF employees, volunteers, and contractors.
“Confidential” means a duty to keep information safe from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
“Information” means personal information obtained by JPCHF as well as JPCHF business information.
“Personal information” means any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. This information can include facts about, or related to, the individual. Exceptions include: business contact information and other publicly available information such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone or business directories. These items are not considered personal information. Where an individual uses his or her home contact information as business contact information as well, we consider that the contact information provided is business contact information, and is not therefore subject to protection as personal information.
“Privacy” means the right of individuals to determine for themselves when, how and to what extent information about themselves is communicated to others.
The purpose of this policy is to establish JPCHF’s requirements regarding collection, use access and disclosure of personal information as well as confidential business information (personal/business information).
The Saskatchewan HIPA (Health Information Privacy Act) does not apply to the Foundation, since it applies to “personal health information”. “Personal health information” is defined as information about an individual’s physical or mental health and/or information gathered in the course of providing a health service. The Foundation does not have access to such information and therefore the Foundation is not defined as a “trustee” under HIPA.
The federal PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Personal Electronic Documents Act) – which is also based on the Canadian Standards Association model- also does not apply to the Foundation since it specifically applies only to provincial organizations involved in “commercial activities”. The Foundation is only deemed to be involved in commercial activities if it trades, rents or sells personal information (such as donor lists). The Foundation does not trade, rent or sell personal information.
