Airdrie Food Bank will not disclose this information to any third parties other than affiliated agencies or service partners that would reasonably expect it, except as required by law.


Donor personal information such as name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address is used strictly to provide: (a) charitable donation receipts, (b) a thank you for your donation and (3) our newsletter if you wish to receive it. If at any time you do not wish to receive our newsletter, simply contact us and we will remove your name.

We make every reasonable effort to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personal information under our control. Our security policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary.

Only authorized volunteers have access to client and donor information, based only on their need to deal with the information for the reason(s) for which it was obtained. Safeguards are in place to ensure that the information is not disclosed or shared more widely than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. We keep your information for the time we are providing you with a product or service, and for a reasonable time thereafter.
