The Council is a partnership of Canadian apparel manufacturers, Unions representing apparel industry workers and the Education sector. Purchasing services with us or one of our partners may require us to gather additional personal information (including credit card information, where appropriate).

Unless you request to receive the results of the survey via email, no personal information is requested during such surveys and all information is used on an aggregated basis only. If, during the registration process, you indicate you would like us to keep you updated on new site developments and specific information about our services or about offerings from the Council , we will send you these updates by email.
If you contact the Council we may keep a record of that correspondence. We do not collect the email addresses of those who communicate with the Council via email. We use the information provided only so that we may respond to the email.

We do not reveal your credit card number when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
The Council has partnered with reputable third parties to offer our customers a variety of services. Many of these services also require registration to make them function properly. You can recognize most of these sites if you see both organizations' names on the Web page. For example, if you see a logo on the page that says "Powered by ", you are on a co-hosted site. We also have other third-party relationships, where the third party provides the technology or service under the Council name and Website. In either of these cases, unless otherwise indicated at the registration page, the Council does not provide your Registration Information to its third party partners. Although we only work with reputable third parties, our third party partners may have different privacy policies and practices than the Council. We encourage you to review our business partners' privacy policies further to understand their procedures for collecting, using and disclosing personal information.
This Site may contain links to other sites, including those of our business partners, vendors and advertisers. While we try to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, please understand that we are not responsible for the content of, or the privacy practices employed by, other sites.
