At Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM) we value relationships of trust, and we are committed to protecting the privacy of our donors, employees and other stakeholders. All personal information CBM collects from individuals is kept in confidence.

Personal Information as defined by the Privacy Commissioner

Personal Information We Collect and How It’s Used

You provide personal information expressly through completing our online form for donation purposes. Information such as name, address, telephone number, email address, banking or credit card data is collected for donation/receipting purposes and/or for providing educational or marketing materials. CBM does not retain any credit card information from online transactions once the donation has been processed. We refer to this information as “Donation Information.”  

We collect Device Information using the following technologies: 

  • “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit

  • “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.  

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Donation Information.

Personal Information gathered by CBM is maintained in a confidential manner and the appropriate information is disclosed to authorized CBM employees as required in processing donations and providing materials. Safeguards are in place to ensure that personal information is not disclosed or shared beyond the purposes for which it was gathered. Address information is forwarded to a third party mailing service provider under strict terms and on a confidential basis for limited use. Confidentiality Agreement Letters are retained on file in our offices.  CBM does not rent or sell or buy personal information to/from other organizations or service providers.
