Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

PMI Nova Scotia’s privacy policy was developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the highest-quality services with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our members, non-members, and partners.

 

The policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our services. This statement will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices, and our members' needs.

 

What Information do we collect? When you visit our website, (pmins.ca)  and sign up for an event, you log in via single sign-on with your PMI.org credentials or you manually input your data as part of an event registration.  The event cost is calculated based on your membership status according the latest release of membership information from PMI Global.

 

In order to enhance our Web site, we may track the way our visitors and customers are using the site. Personal information, such as your name and e-mail address, is not included in this analysis. We do not follow your browsing path outside of pmins.ca. When you sign up for an event, we ask you to provide information including your name, postal address, e-mail address. We do not use or release any information for any purpose except to verify your transaction.  The only party we will release this information to is to you directly upon request.

 

The website allows the membership to track the events for which they register and attend and collect PDUs. All of that information is retained in the event that you require proof as part of a credential renewal audit by PMI.

 

Credit Card Transactions: PayPal processes credit card transactions. This professional secure payment authorization service was chosen for security and reliability. Our website collects name and address information and PMI ID. This user information and the price of the event are passed to PayPal, which collects the credit card number, verifies it and processes the transaction. Information collected during transactions is maintained in their database in accordance with their own privacy policies. Our website maintains a list of the people who have tried to process transactions and those that have succeeded for each event. This provides a registration list for each event. Information from these transactions is not released to third parties. Credit card information is not available to anyone outside of PayPal and PMI Nova Scotia does not/will not request or process credit card transactions via phone.

 

Confidentiality: Registration Data is the property of the PMI Nova Scotia., subject to and protected by the applicable government regulations. PMI Nova Scotia. will not sell, rent, swap, or otherwise disclose your Registration Data to any third party other than for the purposes of reporting PDU activities directly to PMI.

Any regular email communication is managed via a separate mailing list that all members have explicitly requested to join and confirmed to be a member of.  Users can unsubscribe from these communications at any time by clicking the link contained in all email communications.

 

User Access to Information Collected: You may modify the information used to maintain the “My Account” view to the site through PMI.org only.  All data is provided to the chapter via a data feed from the PMI parent organization (PMI.org privacy statement).
