Fraser Valley Refugees Privacy Policy


Archway and the Fraser Valley Refugee Readiness Team

FVRRT is overseen by a council of organizations and individuals. However, Archway Community Services is considered the lead organization and therefore, is the host of this website.

The collection of personal information on our website

Our website has a number of places where people can provide personal information to either connect to our services or get involved.

Our forms are designed so that you only need to provide a minimum amount of personal information to complete your request or activity.

Further, our Contact Us form has additional security on it to ensure your information only goes to where it is supposed to and is only used for the purposes you have requested.

Our site uses cookies to track visits so that we know how many people are using our website and what types of information they are looking for. This tracking is anonymous and Archway cannot use these tools to identify you personally. However, our site is linked to Google Analytics, which can result in the collection and use of data by Google.

Details regarding Google Analytics use of data can be found at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

This site honours your browser’s settings and so you may disable the cookies at any time.

Definition of personal information

Personal information is defined as “information about an identifiable individual”. This is information like your name, phone number, address and email address as well as any other information that could be connected to you.

On our website, we have taken care to design our forms so that there is very little personal information required before you send it. However, all our forms need a minimum of your name and your email address.

How we use and store the information you send us from our website

The following explains how we collect, use and disclose your personal information.

Purposes for collection, use and disclosure of personal information

Many of our clients and our community supporters find it convenient to connect with us through our website. For that reason our website collects some personal information so that we can connect with you. However, we also welcome phone calls or emails if you want to request services or receive more information about us.

Archway Community Services collects and uses information from our website for the delivery of services and to connect you to volunteer opportunities.

We only keep your personal information for as long as required by law.

Archway Community Services does not use or disclose personal information for any purpose other than for the reason it was collected or as required by law. When information could be used for a different purpose than was originally consented we will first obtain your consent unless we are required by law to release it.
