Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information


The Tottenham Rich Hill Pastoral Charge is committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information. Personal information is collected, used, maintained, and disclosed in compliance with the principles of The United Church of Canada Privacy Statement, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), and other applicable federal and provincial privacy legislation.

Online Donations

We use Canada Helps for our online donation system. When you make an online donation, Canada Helps asks for personal information including your name; e-mail and mailing addresses; telephone number; credit card number, type, and expiration date. This information only for matters related to your online donation. The Pastoral Charge does not keep any credit card numbers on file.

Online Event Registration

The Pastoral Charge sometimes uses the charge’s website for event registration.

When you register online for an event, we ask for a variety of personal information. We use this information only for matters related to your registration and participation in the event, and to follow up about the event. We do not ask for credit card numbers online.

The information collected is kept confidential and is only shared between the website administrator and event organizer.


We use MailChimp to host and manage our e-newsletter service. When you subscribe to one of our e-newsletters, we ask for your name and a valid e-mail address. This is the minimum amount of information we need to fulfill your subscription request.

All newsletters have an option that allows you to cancel or modify your subscription preferences at any time. “Unsubscribe” requests are fulfilled promptly, and no further communications will be sent to you.

We WILL NOT make any personal information about our subscribers available to any third party except as required by law. MailChimp’s privacy policy ( outlines what specific information is gathered on their site and how that information is used.

Online Groups, Networks, and Blogs

The Pastoral Charge website offers links to many different online tools to facilitate communication with our members, adherents, volunteers, and interest groups. These range from simple blogs or groups to more sophisticated networks on Facebook or our online calendar.

While we try our best to select trustworthy and reputable third-party tools, these services are not controlled or maintained by the Pastoral Charge, and we cannot guarantee the privacy or security of any information you provide to these services. We recommend you review the privacy policy for each service before disclosing personal or sensitive information.

Changes to This Privacy Statement

The Pastoral Charge may, from time to time, change this Privacy Statement as new services are added or old ones changed. Please review this statement regularly for updates.
