Privacy Policy

The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta is committed to safeguarding the personal information entrusted to us by our members. This privacy statement outlines the practices we follow in protecting personal information.

This privacy statement applies to the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta and to any person providing services on our behalf. A copy of this privacy statement is provided to any member on request.

We collect only the personal information that we need for the purposes of providing services to our members, including personal information needed to:

  • deliver requested products and services
  • enrol a member in a program and manage said programs
  • send communications to members

We normally collect member information directly from our members. We may collect your information from other persons with your consent or as authorized by law.

We inform our members, before or at the time of collecting personal information, of the purposes for which we are collecting the information. The only time we don’t provide this notification is when a membervolunteers information for an obvious purpose (for example, producing a credit card to pay a membership fee when the information will be used only to process the payment).

We make every reasonable effort to ensure that personal information is accurate and complete. We rely on individuals to notify us if there is a change to their personal information that may affect their relationship with our organization. If you are aware of an error in our information about you, please let us know and we will correct it on request wherever possible. In some cases we may ask for a written request for correction.

We protect personal information in a manner appropriate for the sensitivity of the information. We make every reasonable effort to prevent any loss, misuse, disclosure or modification of personal information, as well as any unauthorized access to personal information.

If you have a question or concern about any collection, use or disclosure of personal information by the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta, or about a request for access to your own personal information, please contact to respond to questions.
