Living Oceans Society respects your right to privacy and is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust. Our privacy policy complies with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.

This information is required on correspondence with decision makers to authenticate your letters and to receive a written response.

The personal information you provide is stored in a secure location and is accessible only by designated staff. It will never be sold or traded. We will not disclose this information to others except to send it, along with your message, to the targeted government or corporate officials you have chosen to communicate with through our systems at your request.

To participate in Living Oceans Society contests, you may be required by law to provide us with some personal information to ensure that contestants and voting participants meet residency and eligibility criteria.

You may make a request to be removed from our list. These requests are subject to Section 9 of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and may take up to 30 days to be fulfilled. You always have the option to unsubscribe and on request, Living Oceans Society will be pleased to erase all record of your personal information from our secure server.
