The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is a trade union devoted to promoting the interests of workers throughout Canada, including those of postal workers and service workers, promoting public services and the interests of Canadian residents as a whole. This Website is intended for Canadian residents. Our Delivering Community Power campaign aims to improve and expand the services offered through our public postal system and focuses on greening the post office as we transition to a post-carbon economy.
Our Delivering Community Power Website is a key component of our campaign – allowing us to provide people with information and to collect information from people to help them stay informed, participate in the campaign, and take action.
CUPW is committed to upholding and defending your privacy rights, whether online or offline. Regardless of the extent to which CUPW is subject to federal and provincial privacy laws in Canada, it respects your privacy rights as provided in this policy. This site is not intended for use by visitors from outside Canada, such as those residing in and visiting the site from the United States of America or the European Union. We believe this policy is reasonably consistent with the rights and protections that may exist for users, personal information collectors and processors in those jurisdictions.
We reserve the right to change this policy at any time. We strongly suggest that you review it carefully with each visit to the site to ensure that you are familiar with its contents.
We want to keep you informed and engaged with our Delivering Community Power campaign. To facilitate this, we use the NationBuilder™ platform to tell you about our campaign, collect information, communicate with you, advocate for our cause and to help us organize our community of volunteers, CUPW members, supporters, prospects and others within the campaign.
NationBuilder™ is a third-party host and software platform, with its own privacy policies and other policies that CUPW does not control. We also use additional third-party tools and integrations that have their own privacy policies and other policies, as noted below in this document, that CUPW does not control. We strongly encourage site users to review the 3dna Corp. dba NationBuilder site features and policies at NationBuilder.com and the policies of our noted third-party tools to ensure that you can make an informed decision regarding your consent to continue to use our Website and related services on this platform.
If you do not agree with these conditions, policies and practices, we ask that you not use this Website or related services.
Personal Information does not include your personally identifiable information that has been deidentified, pseudonymized, anonymized, aggregated and/or otherwise processed so as to be unidentifiable (i) in such a way that the data can no longer be attributed to a specific individual, or (ii) in such a way that the data can no longer be attributed to a specific individual (by reasonable means) without the use of additional information, and where such additional information is kept separate and under adequate security to prevent unauthorized re-identification of a specific individual such that one could not, using reasonable efforts, link such information back to a specific individual (the foregoing being referred to as “De-Identified Personal Information”).
We are not responsible for the practices of sites linked to from the Services, and you are advised to review their site rules and policies before interacting with any of these sites or providing them with any private information. See our External Links Disclaimer for more information.
We gather various types of Personal Information from our users, as explained in more detail in this policy, and we use this Personal Information internally in connection with our Services, including to personalize and improve our services.
With your consent, if you choose to sign up to the campaign to receive emails or text messages, and provide your personal information, we typically collect:
With your consent and via the appropriate forms or channels (online or offline), we may also collect:
For clarity, the main page types users will encounter on the site include basic information pages, blogs, calendars, events, petitions, FAQs, sign-up pages, surveys, volunteer sign up pages and page redirects. As noted above, some of these pages may request your personal information.
In addition, there are some more complex features of NationBuilder™ that may be used publicly, as required, or used only by site administrators. These include site activity streams, directories, endorsements, feedback pages, find your social media friends, Nation followers, followers of signed-in users, leaderboards, political capital, media releases, recruiting, site rules, suggestion box pages, and vote pledges. In addition to NationBuilder’s™ own features and pages, we can embed New Mode’s Engagement tools (detailed below) and may use other third-party tools and Apps as required to display data, input, store, process and transfer data into and from our Nation.
We may collect social media profile information through monitored social media feeds and import publicly available information related to them as campaign prospects for further outreach. For example, this could include automatically importing followers or those who interact with our Twitter feed.
We may also collect and publicly display campaign-related social posts from social media users’ public posts or public social feeds.
As you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns (‘Analytics’) including:
We may also use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (behavioral tracking). For more information on how to opt-out of advertiser tracking mechanisms, please visit www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
The Analytics information we collect automatically is statistical data and may include Personal Information. We may associate it with Personal Information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties for further analysis.
We may use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any Personal Information:
We may also use the information we have collected from you to enable us to display advertisements to our advertisers’ target audiences. Even though we do not disclose your Personal Information for these purposes without your consent, if you click on or otherwise interact with an advertisement, the advertiser may assume that you meet its target criteria.
For the purposed noted under use of your information, we may share the personal information you provide with CUPW-authorized members of the Delivering Community Power campaign structure, in compliance with this policy’s allowed uses of information, to help further the goals of the campaign.
We may also share your Personal Information with CUPW-authorized third parties for the purpose of providing the Services to you or to help us improve the Services we provide. We may store Personal Information in locations outside our direct control (for instance, on servers or databases located or co-located with hosting providers).
We do not disclose, rent or sell your Personal Information that we collect to others outside of the CUPW-authorized structure noted above and CUPW-authorized third parties 1) unless you have chosen to publicly display such information (see Posting of User Content), or 2) have consented to share it, or 3) other than as noted under Your Consent to Our Disclosure/Assignment of Your Personal Information.
In some cases, you may also provide information (such as your name, contact information, comments, actions taken, survey answers, endorsements, site reactions, sign ups, volunteer information, event sign ups, donations and other relevant information submitted by you) to be published or displayed (hereinafter, “posted”) on public areas of the Website with your permission, or transmitted to other users of the Website (collectively, “User Content”).
You consent that any User Content you submit or post may be displayed publicly in accordance with site features or page options – unless you are given and choose the option not to display it publicly. Examples of permission-granting mechanisms would include an online check-box consent option, written consent or consent notice prior to form submission, or through other means of providing consent when it is collected offline or outside of the Website and related services (e.g. for paper-based petitions, sign up lists, emails, letters of endorsement, etc.).
Be advised that any User Content you post or transmit to others is done at your own risk.
Any Personal Information or content that you voluntarily disclose for public posting to DeliveringCommunityPower.ca or its related services becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy or Website customization settings. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Website with whom you may choose to share your User Content. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Content will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
We reserve the right to monitor any user content posted on our Website. Users must ensure that any information they submit is in full compliance with site rules and policies, applicable copyright protections and legislation, and that they will not post unauthorized material. CUPW reserves the right to remove non-compliant, inappropriate and/or unauthorized material from its Website. CUPW also reserves the right to remove publicly posted user submitted content for any reason or no reason. If you (or we) remove information that you posted to DeliveringCommunityPower.ca or its related services, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other users have copied or saved that information.
We may also automatically repost or share content from your public social media posts or feeds if it mentions or links to our campaign and/or our social media feeds.
We may share de-identified personal information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Services.
From time to time, we may run contests, special offers, or other events or activities (“Events”) on the Service together with a third-party partner. If you provide personal information to such third parties, you give them permission to use it for the purpose of that Event and any other use to which you consent. We cannot control third parties’ use of your information. If you do not want your information to be collected by or shared with a third party, you can choose not to participate in these Events.
You consent to our disclosure of your Personal Information and other information to a potential buyer or other successor for the purpose of considering a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which Personal Information held by us about our Website users is among the assets transferred. You agree to and do hereby consent to our assignment, conveyance, or transfer (whether by contract, merger or operation of law) of rights to your Personal Information and other information, with or without notice to you and without your further consent.

The information that you can view, update, and delete may change as the Services change. If you have any questions about viewing or updating the information we have on file about you, please contact us at [email protected].
We integrate social media application program interfaces or plug-ins (“Plug-ins”) from social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, or other companies and platforms, into the Website.
When you are provided with the ability to share content from the site to social media, you may be given a customized link for your email address or account id (if you have submitted information to the site or are partially logged in). When you share using this type of “recruiter” link, it will allow us to track all individuals who come to the site from your link and attribute them to you.
At our sole discretion, we may also connect our Twitter and Facebook accounts to our Nation’s broadcasters. This allows us to post directly from our NationBuilder™ account to our social media feeds. Users who interact with our social media properties may also have their publicly available information, from their respective social media feeds used for that interaction, automatically brought in to our Nation’s database. By interacting with our social media properties in any way, you consent to these conditions and to the collection and use of your social media profile information, social media posts and replies, and any other related information.
Please note that the settings and permissions of Twitter and Facebook are beyond CUPW’s control and may change from time to time.

From time to time, we may use an email validation service or tool to validate email addresses we use with our data imported into NationBuilder™. We use these services or tools as a means of email address quality control. When people or organizations sign up to paper-based campaign petitions or via other print media, or when information is collected outside of the NationBuilder™ platform, we may submit user data to such services or tools for email verification, validation and cleaning. We may also submit existing data in our NationBuilder™ account to such services or tools for email verification, validation and cleaning. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to select a tool or service provider to do this work. Be advised that the tool or service provider we use may store, transfer, share, disclose and process data outside of Canada. For further clarity, by using this site, you agree to these conditions.
By providing us with your email address (including by “following,” “liking,” linking your account to the Services, etc., on a third-party website, App, or network), you consent to our using the email address to send you Service-related notices, including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail. You also agree that we may send you notifications of activity on the Service to the email address you give us, in accordance with any applicable privacy settings.
If you do not want to receive such email messages, you may opt out by emailing us your request at [email protected] or use the “unsubscribe page” here https://www.deliveringcommunitypower.ca/unsubscribe. Opting out may prevent you from receiving email messages regarding updates, improvements, special features, announcements, or offers. You may not opt out of Service-related emails.
The texting service within NationBuilder responds to the STOP command. To opt-out of text messages, text STOP to the number from which you received the text message.
You may also be able to add, update, or delete your information as explained in this policy. When you update information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. You may request deletion of your account by emailing us at [email protected].
We reserve the right to remove your record or account or contact information or any such information or material for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if in our sole opinion such information or material violates, or may violate, any applicable law or CUPW policy or to protect or defend our rights or property or those of any third party. We also reserve the right to remove information upon the request of any third party.
In addition to the above, in our sole discretion, we may also remove accounts or contacts if they have been inactive, or deemed inactive, or not useable, or not emailable, or not capable of receiving texts, or have not opened, or have not engaged with, or have not responded to emails and/or texts, or have not engaged with or used the Website or other related people or services for a period of time that we determine is sufficient.
Following termination or deactivation of your Delivering Community Power account with us, we may retain your profile information and user content for analysis, reporting, archival and/or record keeping, and for any further legal requirements or information appeals for as long as is required for those purposes. Furthermore, we may retain and continue to use all user-supplied information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was given and so that we may use it in conjunction with our campaign. This also includes any user content contained in your communications to us, the campaign, or other users or that is posted to public or semi-public areas of our Website after termination or deactivation of your account.
For the reasons stated above, and due to the nature of the campaign as well as to fulfill any legal requirements, it is not possible to state a specific timeframe as to how long we must retain your information. We will make every effort to remove your information once we have determined that we no longer need it to fulfill the purposes for which it was provided. Before we delete your information and in our sole discretion, we may also reach out to you to see if you want to resume receiving information, reactivate your account, become part of a new campaign or to receive new communications from CUPW.
The above scenarios apply to this campaign only (including evolutions of the campaign and name changes). It does not include the cases where CUPW is using union member data as part of its master NationBuilder™ account and is governed by other CUPW union policies, practices, procedures, collective agreements, and applicable laws. It also excludes any archive backups where CUPW might not have access to easily erase data.
According to NationBuilder™, their server log files are retained for a maximum 90 days, but their collection and storage is beyond CUPW’s control.
CUPW’s Google Analytics account for this site is set to retain user and event data for a maximum of 50 months. This time period is reset with each new user event – for example, a visit to the Website.
For the retention policies of any third-party integrations, we recommend that you visit their web sites to contact them directly for more information.
Nationbuilder™ has implemented measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All personal information you provide to us is stored on NationBuilder’s™ secure servers behind firewalls. It may also be stored on the servers of our third-party service providers. We may store, retrieve, access, and transmit your personal information in Canada, the US or in other countries. Any payment transactions will be performed using third-party payment processors, who should use appropriate security procedures.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of the Website or Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You should not share your password with anyone. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by other users.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although the Nationbuilder™ platform tries to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted to us or which we obtain. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained in Nationbuilder™, third-party software and providers, on the Website, or used with our Services.
You acknowledge and consent to our collecting, transmitting, sharing, processing and storing your Personal Information outside of the country in which you reside.
Typically, our notification of change would be via a revision date and/or updated date at the end of this policy. We therefore, once again, encourage site visitors to review this policy (and all site policies) for changes with each visit to our Website.
Should we decide to email a notification of change, please note that if you’ve opted not to receive emails from us (including legal notice emails or you haven’t provided us with your email address), those policy and legal notices will still govern your use of the Website and Services, and you are still responsible for reading and understanding them.
You may withdraw your consent to use your information and request removal of your information or account at any time by emailing us at [email protected].
For questions, comments or concerns about this policy or to exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data, please contact us using one of the methods below.
