Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy:

Good Roads/Ontario Good Roads Association is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of its members, employees, volunteers, and other stakeholders. This Privacy Policy documents our ongoing commitment to privacy and has been developed in compliance with applicable privacy legislation.

Good Roads complies with Canada’s federal privacy legislation, the Personal Information Protection and Electronics Documents Act (PIPEDA) in the handling of your personal information and the personal information of our employees.

This policy generally explains how we handle personal information about individuals outside of Good Roads.


During the course of our various programs and activities, Good Roads/OGRA may 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.

What is personal information?

Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify, or contact a specific individual. Exceptions: business contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and contact details as published in publicly-available directories, are not considered personal information.

Where Good Roads/OGRA members, employees, volunteers, or other stakeholders use their home contact information as business contact information, Good Roads/OGRA considers that the contact information provided is business contact information and is not therefore subject to protection as personal information.

We only process personal data for as long as is necessary. As soon as the purpose of the data processing is fulfilled, blocking and deletion takes place according to the standards of the deletion concept here, unless legal regulations prevent deletion.

Safeguarding personal information

In the event personal information is transferred to the U.S. or other foreign jurisdictions, it will be subject to the laws of that jurisdiction and may be disclosed to or accessed by the courts, law enforcement and governmental authorities in accordance with those laws.

Please note that confidentiality and security are not assured when information is transmitted through e-mail or other electronic communication.
