Our Commitment to You
The University of Windsor Students’ Alliance (UWSA) is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its members, employees, and the community. The UWSA values the trust of those we deal with, and of the public, and recognizes that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat the information that you choose to share with us.
For UWSA services, the UWSA gathers and uses personal information. Anyone from whom we collect such information should expect that it will be carefully protected and that any use of or other dealing with this information is subject to consent.
Any personal information you provide to us – including your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address – will not be released, sold, or rented to any entities or individuals outside of the UWSA.

Services and links
Our website enables you to communicate with us.
Because the UWSA wants your website visit to be informational and resourceful, our site sometimes provides a number of links to third party sites.
We do not sell personal information we collect. We will not disclose your personal information to anyone else without your prior knowledge or consent, except when required by a government body or agency, or as permitted by law.
The UWSA endeavours to ensure that any personal information provided and in its possession is as accurate, current and complete as necessary for the purposes for which the UWSA uses that information.
The UWSA keeps personal information only as long as it is required for the reasons it was collected. The length of time we retain information varies, depending on the nature of the information. This period may extend beyond the end of a person’s relationship with us but it will be only for so long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise at a later date.
When your personal information is no longer required for UWSA purposes, we have procedures to destroy, delete, erase or convert it into an anonymous form.
Confidentiality and Security
The UWSA maintains physical, electronic and administrative safeguards that are appropriate to the type of personal information we obtain from you.
UWSA staff and volunteers having access to personal data are required to respect the confidentiality of personal information and handle it responsibly.
If you are aware of any inaccuracy or changes in the personal information which we hold about you, please contact the UWSA.
