Privacy Policy

The Recycling Council of Ontario is committed to the protection of personal information that we acquire through the many activities and programs over which we have control. The privacy of our members and those who communicate with us is one of our highest priorities. The RCO does not share, sell or rent individual personal information with anyone for promotional use without the explicit consent of that individual. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for the purposes of contacting you or sending electronic information based on your request for same, or to contracted service providers for the purposes of providing services related to our communications with you.

The RCO uses appropriate security measures to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of data used by our system(s).

Part of the RCO service offering to its members is a daily electronic news update which is permission based. If at any time a member chooses to withdraw from this service, the appropriate unsubscribe options are provided with the email.

From time to time the RCO hosts events and conferences where registration fees are charged via credit card. The information gathered during this process is collected through a secure e-commerce program that does not store any of the personal details provided.

We are judicious about the frequency with which we use electronic communications and only use this format for the distribution of information that is of interest to our members and other stakeholders. There is an easy automated way to cease receiving all or selected email from the RCO and that is by using the SafeUnsubscribe(TM) link where indicated.
