This website, https://openprivacy.ca (the “Site”) is operated by the Open Privacy Research Society (“We” or “Us”). Open Privacy (for short) is a non-profit organization, legally incorporated.
Open Privacy is strongly committed to protecting your privacy online. As an organization, we’re also strongly committed to data security to ensure our own channels of communication are safe and secure.
Your Personal Information
By default, as much as we can, we do not collect personal information. Where we do, we try to do it as minimally as possible. We will never re-purpose that data or sell it.
We will never share your information without your consent and we will always tell you why first, when or before we ask. We may be forced to comply with the exceptions to this under certain circumstances listed in BC PIPA.
If you have any concerns please contact our privacy officer Dan Ballard
We do not track or log IPs of visitors to our website, or other ancillary sites and utilities we host, such as our volunteers mailing list. We do not use any third party analytics and tracking. Cookies are only required on parts of the website that require logging in.
On top of those basics, the following may apply:
- Bitcoin: The address you use to send will be recorded in the public blockchain
- Patreon: For some rewards we collect a mailing address. We will never use it for anything else except to mail you rewards, and will delete them at your request or when you unpledge.
When given, we will store the name given on donations in our private accounting records for as long as we need to keep those, typically 7 years.
We run a volunteer mailing list. If you sign up, we will have a record of your email address. If you later unsubscribe your email will be deleted from the registry.
However we also keep web archives of all emails sent to the list so if you participate your email will be there for as long as we keep the archive, which we treat as a public record, and in other subscribers inboxes (as email works).

Open Privacy may revise or amend this policy at any time at our sole discretion. If we make any substantive changes in the way we collect or use personally identifying information provided by users, we will post a prominent announcement on our web site home page and post the changes on this page. We will never change our policies and practices to make them less protective of user information collected prior to the effective date of any changes without the consent of affected users. We encourage users to visit this page periodically to review our current policy.
