Petitions and Surveys
For petitions and surveys you’ve signed or completed, we treat your name, city, province or territory, and comments as public information—for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to leaders and other target audiences, or to the press. We will not make your street address or email publicly available, but we may transmit it to the designated target as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number, without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first and last name, city and province or territory available to the press and public online. When you do give permission for us to share your email address as part of a campaign, CFNP is not responsible for the content or use of your email address by campaign targets.
Sending Emails Via CFNP
In certain cases, we enable you to send individual e-mails to leaders or other targets as well as Letters-to-the-Editor to various news publications, through our website. These messages are sent in your name, with your e-mail address as the return address and your full name and contact information is provided as part of the submission. These messages will only be sent out under your name as you approve them on an individual basis using our email tool. You are solely responsible for the specific message(s) you send using our email tool. CFNP takes no responsibility for the content or use of your email address by campaign targets.
