Good day, 

As the CanFURence Privacy Officer, I wish to ease any concerns regarding the recent article about the “Convention Master” registration software (see link below).

This, indeed, does not impact any of our current or previous attendees, as we have never used this software or website and have no plans to do so going forward.

I wanted to proactively assure you that your information is secure.

We treat all of your personal information, for both attendees and staff, as highly confidential, as required by Canadian federal laws (see link “PIPEDA” below) and ensure that only those with a need-to-know can access it. All staff are also required to abide by explicit policies regarding the handling of sensitive data.

If you have any questions regarding CanFURence’s storage and protection of your information, please consult our privacy policy (see link below) or feel free to reach out to me at .

Reiver
Privacy Officer, CanFURence
