Collection of personal information

Personal information is information about you that identifies you as an individual, for example, your name, address, email address, or telephone number.

We may collect information that you voluntarily provide to us through responses to surveys, search functions, questionnaires, feedback, subscriptions and the like. We may also ask you to provide additional information such as your email address if you want to access additional services, information, download content, access the members’ area, or to resolve complaints or concerns.

OMWA does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children nor allow them to become registered users of, or to request information through, this site.

How does OMWA use this information?

Before forwarding us any personal information, please be advised that any information gathered here may be used in the aggregate for research and development or for future site development and, if you ask us to, to send you educational and member-related materials such as board agendas or event invitations.

Informational releases

Information submitted at the time of registration or submission may be used for marketing and promotional purposes to keep users informed of our activities. If you object to such use for any reason, you may request us to stop via email or by changing your registration information.

Disclosure of information

OMWA will not disclose personal information that you provide to any third parties except to comply with legal requirements such as a law, regulation, warrant, subpoena or court order, and/or if you report an adverse event or result. In the latter case, OMWA may be required to disclose such information to bodies such as, but not limited to, Canadian and/or international regulatory authorities. Please note that any of these disclosures may involve the storage or processing of personal information outside of Canada and may therefore be subject to different privacy laws than those applicable in Canada, including laws that require the disclosure of personal information to governmental authorities under circumstances that are different from those that apply in Canada.
