ORNAC recognizes that privacy of information is important. This privacy notice is to explain to you what ORNAC does with information and the manner in which it is used. This notice is to voluntarily comply with federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
Collection and Use of Personal information
ORNAC limits its requests for information to ONLY what is required to ensure ongoing communication and completion of work for the Operating Room Nurses Association of Canada (ORNAC). Most of the personal information collected by ORNAC is for use within the association. The information is basic including but not limited to, name, address, telephone number, fax number, email address and work phone number, address, and job title.
The ORNAC web site lists the Executive and Board. Your email address or other information shall not be posted without your knowledge. The number of visits to our website is monitored. Inquiries from the website are dispersed to appropriate members or Committee Chairs via the web monitor. The member may respond directly to the inquirer or back to the web monitor as they wish.
ORNAC is a volunteer organization within perioperative registered nursing practice, therefore is limited in corporate activity and clients. ORNAC clients will be asked for information pertaining to the work involved and shall not share it with others. Clients shall be informed of information sharing in advance. An example is the review of Post Basic Courses seeking ORNAC endorsement for a program. A certificate of recognition is given and this information is displayed by ORNAC and the receiving client. The score achieved, and the name of the reviewer is not revealed.
Individual members of the Executive and Board have the right to refuse posting of personal information in ORNAC venues, including but not limited to, Canadian Operating Room Nursing Journal (CORNJ), www.ornac.ca, ORNAC Standards documents, Position Statements, Guidelines or advertising such as national conference posters.
