The disclaimer on your forms reads that ESA may “collect, use and disclose” personal information. Does ESA provide information to other organizations without my knowledge?

No, ESA does not provide personal information to third parties without your knowledge and permission.

ESA’s Access and Privacy Code defines what information will and will not be disclosed even if it is requested. For example, ESA will not disclose personal information that violates an individual’s right to privacy, unless that individual consents to the disclosure.

ESA regularly denies Requests for Information that are exempt from disclosure under the Code. We must disclose information that does not fall under these exemptions, if asked.
