Your record, your right
The Alumni Association and the University of Alberta occasionally contact alumni by mail, email and phone with information on alumni events, services, and opportunities for giving. As has always been the case, your Alumni Association considers your privacy to be of utmost importance; it is a responsibility we take very seriously.

If you have any questions or concerns about your personal record, or would like to limit the kinds of contact you receive, please contact us.

Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy
The Office of Advancement, which includes the Office of Alumni Relations, collects information on behalf of the University of Alberta, its Faculties, and its Alumni Association, under the authority of Section 33(c) of the Alberta Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, for the purposes of administering alumni relations and development programs for the University of Alberta. Any information submitted by an individual to the Office of Advancement, including through an associated website or via email, may be used to update that individual's record.

Information gathered for the above purposes will be protected and used in compliance with Alberta's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Individuals who submit information to the Office of Advancement acknowledge the above and the collection of personal information.

Privacy and links to other sites
The Alumni and Friends websites may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the content and the privacy practices of other websites and encourage you to examine each site's privacy policy and disclaimers and make your own decisions regarding the accuracy, reliability and correctness of material and information found.

Please also see the University of Alberta's privacy statement.

The university has taken the position that members of the Alumni Association are members of a "club, association or voluntary organization" within the meaning of Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation, thereby giving the university automatic implied consent to send Commercial Electronic Messages to alumni members until that consent is withdrawn.
