Privacy Policy

Last Updated: October 2022

Generation Squeeze is committed to protecting your personal information and respecting your privacy. Our privacy policy is designed to protect personal information you provide to Generation Squeeze, and outlines the principles and practices we follow in protecting this information.

Collecting Personal Information

Personal information is any information about an identifiable individual. 

We do not require you to provide personal information to view the majority of content on our website. However, when you sign up to join our network, receive our newsletter, or participate in online actions hosted on our website, we will collect personal information such as:

  • Name
  • Postal code
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Social media handles

We use this information to provide information, updates and announcements to you.  At the time of collecting personal information, we will inform you of the purposes for which we are collecting it. 


We will ask for consent to collect, use, or disclose your personal information, except in specific circumstances where collection, use, or disclosure without consent is authorized or required by law. 

You may withdraw consent to the use and disclosure of personal information at any time, unless the personal information is necessary for us to fulfill our legal obligations. We respect your decision, but we may not be able to provide certain services if you are unwilling to provide consent or if you withdraw consent. 

Safeguarding Personal Information

We take every reasonable precaution to protect your personal information. When you submit personal information, your information is protected both online and offline. We retain personal information only as long as is reasonable to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected or for legal or business purposes. 

Generation Squeeze never trades, shares, or sells email addresses or phone numbers. We use them only to provide you with information. 

Wherever we collect credit card data, for example on our donation pages, that information is encrypted and transmitted to payment processors in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the web page. Your credit card information is securely stored by the payment processors themselves and we do not have access to it (save for the last four digits of your credit card, which helps us to identify your donation should you decide to cancel or modify it). When making a donation over the phone, your credit card information is similarly encrypted and transmitted to the payment processor, and we do not keep a separate record of your credit card information online or offline. We do not sell, rent or otherwise share this information with anyone, and access is limited to staff members involved in billing and member services. 

As a registered charity, Generation Squeeze collects donations, and issues receipts for these donations, through the Canada Helps online platform. Canada Helps is a registered Canadian charity that facilitates donations and fundraising on behalf of other charitable organizations. When you make a donation on Canada Helps, Generation Squeeze does not have access to your credit card information. More information about the Canada Helps Privacy Policy can be found at:

Access, Review and Correction

You have the right to access personal information collected and held by Generation Squeeze. You are also entitled to make a request to correct or delete inaccurate or outdated personal information. Requests can be made by contacting [email protected]

Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL)

Generation Squeeze complies with the CASL requirements related to sending commercial electronic messages. 

You will receive newsletters, updates, announcements, and or/bulletins from us if you have requested to join our network on our website. You can ask us to stop sending you these messages at any time by following the unsubscribe links in any of our emails. Alternatively, you can make your request by contacting us at [email protected]


The Generation Squeeze website uses cookies (including Google, Twitter, and Facebook tracking tools) to monitor ad campaign results and traffic sources. You can set your browser to refuse all or some cookies, or to alert you when websites set or access cookies. If you disable or refuse cookies, some parts of the Generation Squeeze website may not function properly. 

Policy Updates and Changes

Because of the fast-changing nature of the online medium and the world around us, Generation Squeeze may change or supplement this policy from time to time. Changes may occur without warning and they will be reflected on this page. Please note that Generation Squeeze's Privacy Policy can be superseded by applicable provincial or federal legislation.

Links to Other Websites

To provide users with more information on various issues, we often provide links to third-party websites. However, we do not control those websites, nor do we endorse their viewpoints. Clicking on links or enabling connections to third-party websites may allow third parties to collect or share personal information about you. We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements. We encourage you to read the Privacy Policy of every website you visit. 

Questions and Complaints

If you have a question or concern about the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information by Generation Squeeze, or a request for access to your own personal information, please contact:
