This website and its associated mailing lists have been made possible by funding from Transport Canada's Moving On Sustainable Transportation (MOST) program, through the Canadian Cycling Association (CCA). The content of this website is owned by the Canadian Cycling Association and managed by a MOST committee comprised of CCA staff and CAN-BIKE national examiners.
The Canadian Cycling Association and the leaders of its CAN-BIKE program are committed to protecting your privacy and maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information. Personal information may be provided to us through membership application/renewal; discussion list subscription, correspondence; registrations to courses, conferences, meetings or other events; or responding to your information requests.
Here is the personal information we collect for use on this website (canbike.net) and how we use it:
When you sign up for a mailing list, we may request your name, address, telephone number, and CAN-BIKE status (i.e. relationship to the CAN-BIKE program) so that we can verify that you are eligible to receive CAN-BIKE information from these lists. We also request the name and contact information of one reference person so that we can verify your relationship to the CAN-BIKE program. Only your email address is kept on the servers which run the mailing lists; this information is necessary to ensure that you receive the mail that is sent from the list you signed up for. The additional information is kept by the Canadian Cycling Association (CCA) or the person or agency that administers the mailing lists on its behalf. The personal information you provide is not used for any purpose other than to administer the mailing lists, including verifying that you are eligible to receive CAN-BIKE information from these lists. In order to verify your identity and eligibility, we may contact the person you provided as a reference and your provincial or territorial cycling association to confirm your membership. We will not disclose your personal information for any other purpose, except as described below (see "Disclosure").
The CCA, its employees, volunteers and agents will not provide or share your personal information with third parties unless: (1) You authorize us to share the information; (2) sharing the information is necessary to complete a transaction, for example, to verify your membership in a provincial or territorial association; or (3) we are required to do so by law.
