If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any broadcast-based email we send, or by emailing us.

Spam Policy

The Canadian Coach is opposed to SPAM in all forms. We will never sell, lease, rent, or otherwise share your information with anyone.

The Canadian Coach Directory is intended to be used as a tool to find Canadian Coaches and for The Canadian Coach Members to connect with each other. The Canadian Coach Directory is not to be used to promote or market products or services to The Canadian Coach Members.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) indicates that the CAN-SPAM Act provides that “harvesting email addresses” is a violation of the Act that can give rise to criminal penalties, including imprisonment. Harvesting email addresses via unauthorized access to and use of email addresses secured from The Canadian Coach Member Directory and using those emails addresses to issue primarily commercial messages is a violation of the CAN-SPAM Act and subjects the sender to both significant civil fines ($16,000 USD per email) and criminal penalties.

Member contact information included on The Canadian Coach website is primarily posted for the purpose of allowing users to connect with a coach or each other, NOT for the purpose of promoting or marketing products or services to coaches.

All other electronic communications with members should adhere to the following principles:

  1. You should have a prior relationship with the person receiving your email.
  2. A valid “from” and “reply to” address must be included with each message.
  3. If you have a subscription list or Facebook group, do NOT just add people to your without their knowledge or permission. You must have their permission first.
  4. Any request to cease mailing from an individual or organization should be quickly honoured.
  5. A complaint involving a breach of this policy may be considered a violation of the Canadian Coach Code of Ethics, and therefore referred to The Canadian Coach for their consideration. Should they find a breach occurred, remedies may be required. Sanctions may also be imposed such as suspending or terminating the coach’s membership.

Please note that spam laws and regulations above and beyond The Canadian Coach’s policies may apply to commercial electronic messages sent to individuals who have elected to list their contact information on our website.

Security

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. The use of these security measures is not a guarantee that information supplied over the Internet will not be intercepted.

This website contains links to other sites. The Canadian Coach is not responsible for the privacy practices of such websites. Inclusion of links to an outside website is not an endorsement of the website or a guarantee that the information it contains is accurate.
