Privacy Policy

Organization’s Commitment to Privacy

Young Canadians in Finance Corporation of Canada Inc. and Young Canadians in Finance Corporation of America Inc. (together hereinafter referred to as “YCIF” or “we” or “us”) are committed to protecting the privacy of our members and participants (“You”). This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes YCIF’s personal information privacy policies and practices with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of Your personal information.

Personal Information

Personal information is any information about an identifiable individual, such as Your name, email address, mailing addresses, citizenship, gender, date of birth, certain information collected electronically through YCIF’s web site at (“Web Site”), and any other information that identifies who You are. Personal information about You may be collected by YCIF.

What Personal Information Does YCIF Collect?

YCIF limits the collection and use of Your information to what is necessary information for YCIF to deliver information and services to You. We will use Your information only for as long as it is reasonably needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected.

If You would like to make a reservation or purchase (online through the Web Site), sign up to a mailing list or program, or request some other information or service that may be offered by YCIF from time to time, You will be required to provide certain personal information as is described in this Policy. Requested information may include Your name, address, telephone number, gender, email address, credit card number and expiry date. Requested information is required in order to identify You, in order to contact You, if necessary, and to complete Your purchase or request.


When You provide YCIF with Your personal information to register for membership, events or any services provided or referred by YCIF, or when You request information or other services, You are providing YCIF with your consent to collect and use Your information to fulfill the requested service or information.

Confidentiality of Supplied Information

In order to protect the security and confidentiality of any personally identifiable information supplied to YCIF or retained by YCIF (such as Web Site passwords) You are responsible to ensure all such information is kept confidential by You.

Release and Use of Personal Information

Except as is described in this Policy, YCIF will not use and will not disclose or provide Your personal information to any person.

From time to time, YCIF may share the contact information members have provided with key partners that support our mission so that they may send you material you may find useful. In addition, YCIF never shares, gives, loans or sells any of the financial information provided to us for any purpose other than completing the transaction you specified, unless otherwise required by law. YCIF is committed to serving its members in the best way possible; so it is important that we keep You informed about events, job opportunities, and other services offered by YCIF. We will therefore contact You from time to time through the email address You provide to us to keep You informed of these opportunities. YCIF may disclose Your information to the extent prescribed by law.

Website Security

YCIF will use reasonable efforts to protect Your information that You provide to YCIF once it has been received by YCIF. Transaction information processed via the Web Site is captured and protected by Moneris Solutions Corporation, and is not stored by YCIF. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while YCIF strives to protect Your personal information, YCIF cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information You transmit to YCIF, and You do so at Your own risk.

Links to Other Websites

This Policy applies only to information collected by YCIF or supplied by You to YCIF. Although the Web Site may provide You with links to other web sites, this Policy does not apply to those web sites or to the other collection, use or disclosure of personal information by other persons.


If You wish to be taken off of YCIF’s email list You may opt out by contacting YCIF directly at the e-mail address below.

Contacting YCIF

If You have any questions or concerns about this Policy or YCIF’s collection, use and disclosure of Your personal information, or to update Your information or to withdraw any consents that You have provided in the past (subject to reasonable notice, any legal requirements and similar exceptions) You may contact YCIF at any time at

Revisions to Policy

YCIF reserves the right to modify this Policy at any time by posting an amended Policy on the Web Site. It is Your responsibility to review this Policy regularly and You are deemed to be aware of such amendments. If significant material changes are made to the Policy, YCIF will use reasonable efforts to notify You of such changes on the Web Site and by such other means as YCIF determines is appropriate in the circumstances.
