Our commitment
The Canadian Journalism Project (CJP), through its website J-Source, is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of our members, supporters and other stakeholders. We value the trust of those we deal with, and of the public, and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent and accountable in how we treat the information that you choose to share with us.

As CJP strives to fulfill its mission to contribute to the achievement of excellence in Canadian journalism, we frequently gather and use personal information. Anyone from whom we collect such information should expect that it will be carefully protected and that any use of or other dealing with this information is subject to consent.

Personal information
Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. This information can include an individual's opinions or beliefs, as well as facts about, or related to, the individual. Exceptions: business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories, are not considered personal information.

Where an individual uses his or her home contact information as business contact information as well, we consider that the contact information provided is business contact information, and is not therefore subject to protection as personal information.

Privacy practices
Personal information solicited through J-Source is kept in confidence. The information you provide is used to deliver services you've requested and to keep you informed and up-to-date on the activities of CJP and supporter the Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF), including programs, special events, funding needs, and opportunities to support our efforts through periodic contacts.

Under no circumstances will we rent, sell, or trade any of your information.

Privacy policy updates
We regularly review our privacy practices to ensure that we are complying with Canada's federal privacy legislation. We may change this policy from time to time to ensure this standard of compliance is met. Changes will be reflected in this posting.
