Privacy Policy

Privacy
This website is owned and operated by PLEA Community Services Society of BC. PLEA respects the privacy of every individual who visits this site. We do not collect personally identifiable information through this site however; we do collect non-personal statistical information, such as site traffic and usage patterns, through cookies. This information is used primarily to improve the design and structure of the site. It is used solely by PLEA and others involved in the operation of this website and will never be sold or given to third parties.

When a user applies to be a KidStart Volunteer Mentor, or a KidStart Volunteer Mentor logs into their report page, with the exception of KidStart Stólō Nation who receive enquiries and reports via email, users are directed to our Case Administration and Management System (CAMS) which is owned and operated by BJP Case Administration Management System. This system only collects and stores personal identifiable information that is provided voluntarily and knowingly. If a user accesses this system the information supplied is only used for the purpose of providing the services requested. The agencies providing KidStart may also contact users from time-to-time with information that relates to their requests or interests.

CAMS’s internet transmissions are encrypted using third party security certificates, the same as those used in the banking industry. To protect individuals’ privacy, each agency has its own unique database, not shared with others, and only authorized employees or agents within that agency can access personal information stored within that agency’s database. Although CAMS cannot guarantee there will be no unauthorized access to personal information, these measures increase the security and privacy of information traveling to, from and within this system.
