The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA)
The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) sets out ground rules for how private sector organizations may collect, use or disclose personal information in the course of commercial activities. PIPEDA also applies to federal works, undertakings and businesses in respect of employee personal information. The law gives individuals the right to access and request correction of the personal information these organizations may have collected about them.
Give for Goods and Dunham
In the interest of Transparency, Give for Goods is an arm of Dunham and at the same time an arm of the charities it supports. It is a website created and maintained by Dunham to assist a number of charities in fund raising. Dunham has no financial interest with the exception that a fee of 20% is taken (at this time) to reimburse for the investment into this concept and website as well as to contribute to the maintenance. This fee is approved by the charities who will receive 80% of the funds raised.
