Privacy Statement

SaskCentral is committed to keeping the personal information of its employees, member credit unions and other clients that SaskCentral obtains in the course of its business accurate, confidential, secure and private. The following Privacy Statement illustrates this commitment.

In order to protect all personal information collected, used or disclosed by SaskCentral, we have adopted the SaskCentral Privacy Code. This code is based on the Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information (CAN/CSA-Q830-96) included as Schedule 1 of the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. The Privacy Code describes how SaskCentral subscribes to the principles set out in those model codes.

On our website, we collect only as much personal information as is required to improve the services we offer, to improve our site content and, with your permission, to contact you with information about our services. We will not share any personal information obtained on this website with any other organization without your express knowledge and consent.

Information we collect on our site

You can visit all public areas of our site without providing any personal information about yourself. Our website collects only non-personal information based on a visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address (this is not personally identifiable). Information collected includes the date and time of visit, the type of Internet browser used to access the site, the referring address (the link a visitor uses to access our site). This data is used to create statistics on site usage and improve online services.

Will a cookie be set on my computer when I visit this site?

To help us manage our website, we set a cookie on your computer that does not expire when you close your web browser.


If you send us an email, any information provided by you will only be used for the purposes of responding to your inquiry or acting on your request. We will not use your name or e-mail address for any other purposes without additional consent.

Any e-mail message you send us is not encrypted and therefore is non-secure and as open to interception as any other non-encrypted form of communication (e.g. ordinary mail, conversations on ordinary or cellular telephones, etc). SaskCentral accepts no responsibility for the security of confidential information forwarded to it by e-mail, and expressly discourages users of this website from sending confidential information in this manner.

If you do communicate with us by e-mail, we will assume, unless you advise us otherwise, that you consent to our using the information you have sent to us, including your e-mail address, for the purpose of developing and sending an appropriate response to your communication, and disclosing it to such other advisory parties as we deem appropriate for that purpose.

Links to other Websites

Our website contains links to many other websites that are part of, or affiliated with the Canadian credit union and co-operative financial services systems. When you leave our site to visit one of these other sites, the only information transferred to the new site is the fact that you came from the SaskCentral website (the referring address). Transmission of this referring address allows other sites to monitor their own web traffic, but does not disclose any personal information about you.

SaskCentral is not responsible for the privacy policies or content of any linked sites. Our Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by this website. You should consult the privacy policies at linked sites to determine how your personal information may be used.
