Identifying the Purpose of Personal Information. Before
personal information is collected, the purpose for which it is to be
used must be identified to the individual. The Council will not use
personal information for any other purpose.
7. Consent. The Council does not collect personal
information without an individual's consent. The Council makes every
reasonable effort to make sure that an individual understands how her
or his personal information will be used.
An individual can withdraw a consent that has been
given for the use of personal information. The Council will explain
what the consequences are of withdrawing consent. For example, withdrawing
consent to use an individual's name and address may mean that the Council
cannot send information requested by the individual.

Keeping Personal Information. The Council limits the amount and
type of information collected to only the personal information that

personal information is given to enable the Council to send a booklet
and if the individual does not want the Council to keep personal
information for the purpose of sending additional information, the
personal information will only be used for sending the booklet and
will then be deleted or destroyed. The Council does not use personal
information for any other purpose without explaining to the individual
the new use and obtaining a consent as provided under the Act.
The Council does not sell, share or trade any personal
information with others.
The Council does not disclose individual personal information
to others, except if required in the course of fulfilling the purpose
for which it was collected. For example, if an individual has ordered
a booklet, it may be necessary to provide a fulfilment supplier or
the post office with delivery information relating to the individual
requesting the booklet in order to process the request. Or, if an individual
has given the Council personal information in respect of raising a
question about a Member of the Council, it may be necessary, with the
consent of the individual, to provide such information to the Member
in order to consider the question raised.
