Personal information is information that identifies you (or could reasonably lead to you being
identified). The types of personal information we collect, hold and manage depends on our relationship

CCJA may collect your health, well-being, personal disclosure data, and physical fitness information,
which is considered sensitive information under PIPEDA. We collect this information where necessary
as part of our duty of care to students and employees. CCJA will ask for your permission before
collecting this information.
PERSONAL INFORMATION OF PEOPLE UNDER AGE 18
CCJA does not knowingly collect, or seek to collect, the personal information of children (people
under 18 years of age). If you believe that CCJA has collected and holds the personal information of
your child or a child under your guardianship, please advise us urgently so that we can identify and
securely destroy the information.
POSTING IMAGES TO SOCIAL MEDIA
CCJA will always ask your permission before publishing images of you to our social media accounts,

complete and up to date. We encourage you to update your personal information with us, especially if

WHAT WE DO WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION, AND WHO WE GIVE IT TO
We use and disclose your personal information to:
respond to enquiries

register you with the CCJA as a student, employee or contracted instructor
deliver the courses and other services you have enrolled in
provide information and other communications to you
request payment from you

We do not sell or share personal information with any advertisers, sponsors, content providers, media

There is a lawful ability or requirement for us to do so.
KEEPING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION SAFE
We securely manage and dispose of personal information whether it is held in hard copy or electronic
format and whether it is stored on CCJA premises or in ‘the cloud’.
Your personal information (including employment or educational records) will be kept in accordance
with records retention and disposal requirements that apply to the CCJA. Once no longer required to be
kept, your personal information and records will be securely and permanently destroyed.
CCJA engages third party service providers to assist with our business, and we subscribe to social media,
THIRD PARTY PROVIDERS
We use contracted third party service providers in a limited capacity to help us manage aspects of
our business, such as website hosting, student enrolment management and to process credit card
payments. Some of the personal information collected by us may, in turn, be managed in a local or
off-shore digital environment (‘the cloud’) by our service providers. It is a condition of our
agreements with these providers that we remain in control of what happens to the personal
information they manage on our behalf and that it is kept secure.
We also use contracted instructors for the provision of physical training and curriculum instruction.
These contracted instructors are licensed professionals within their various disciplines, and their
agreements with the CCJA include strict privacy and security requirements.
CCJA operates a number of social media accounts, including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram; and
you may choose to engage with us using that medium.
CCJA only ‘pushes’ information (about our services) out via social media accounts. We never publish
images or information about you, or ‘tag’ you in posts, unless we have first received your permission
to do so. You may, however, choose to ‘tag’ yourself or otherwise share information about yourself
in that environment.
Before you send us information via our social media accounts, please be aware that personal
information supplied to us through or posted by us on any social media outlet becomes captured by
via that medium.
Protection of personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure is a priority. Any concerns
about the security of personal information held by us should be reported to us without delay, by email:
ACCESSING AND CORRECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION WE HAVE ABOUT YOU
If we hold personal information about you, we are happy to tell you what it is. We will not, however, tell
someone else what personal information we hold about you (unless you permit us or there is a lawful
ability or requirement for us to do so).
We are also happy to correct or update your personal information where you feel that it is incorrect or
out of date. Students and employees can keep personal information up to date by logging in to their
Academy profile page. If you would like to access or correct your personal information, and you are
unable to do this via your Academy profile page, please get in touch with us by email: <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Due to the nature of our services, CCJA is generally unable to interact with students, prospective
students, employees and contracted instructors anonymously.
Where a person requests to interact with us anonymously (for example, when providing us with
feedback or making a complaint), we will honour the request where practicable.
