WHAT IS “PERSONAL INFORMATION”?
“Personal information” is information about an identifiable individual. It includes contact information such as your name, address, phone number, and other information we obtain to provide you on this website or at my Hill or Constituency Office.

We obtain the information that you choose to give us. You may do so in a variety of ways including:
- When you visit the website or office for the purpose of requesting information or services from my office.
- When you subscribe to the communications.
- If you register for or attend an event.
- If you complete a form on the website.
- It is also possible that your information could be provided to us by a team member, friend or family member who is requesting our assistance on your behalf and have signed the authorization form to represent you.
The information that we collect may include:
- Contact and identification information, such as your name, address, telephone numbers, e-mail address and social media contacts.

Under no circumstances nor purposes will M.P. Ryan Turnbull’s office sell you personal information.
HOW DO WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION?
The security of your personal information is important to us.
We use physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to prevent unauthorized use, sharing, loss and theft of information.
Our security practices are continually evolving to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of our systems and information in our possession. We use up-to-date security safeguards to protect our networks and websites.
For information provided online, this website contains security measures in order to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. My website host’s servers are located in controlled and secure environments.
HOW CAN I UPDATE MY INFORMATION OR UNSUBSCRIBE?
You may update or correct the information in our possession by e-mailing Ryan and his team at Ryan.Turnbull@parl.gc.ca
If you have subscribed to receive information by email, you may unsubscribe by clicking “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email message.
WHAT ABOUT ANTI-SPAM LEGISLATION?
Most of the messages sent by M.P. Ryan Turnbull’s office are exempt from the application of Canada’s anti-spam law which applies to commercial electronic messages sent to electronic addresses. This is because the electronic messages that we send are not of a commercial character. If we do send any messages to which the law applies and for which there are no exemptions, we will ensure that we have consent to do so, as required by the law, and that any other legal requirements e.g. an unsubscribe mechanism, are met.
As a best practice, we have an unsubscribe mechanism for our electronic messages, even where the law does not require us to do so.
DOES M.P. Turnbull LOG IP ADDRESSES?
We and/or our network service providers may log IP addresses, or the location of your device, including browser type, browser language, and device time zone, for systems administration, content optimization, and troubleshooting purposes. We may also use IP addresses to track which pages people visit in order to improve the quality of our website and other online engagement.
