Niagara Reproductive Justice is a group of community members in the Niagara Region, Ontario advocating for increased visibility of and access to sexual health resources in Niagara. We are not a registered non-profit or charity, but a collective of community volunteers.
Privacy and security are important to the members of Niagara Reproductive Justice. Our values statement emphasizes that we strive to make our organization, events, and campaigns as accessible as possible and that we support the safety and voices of survivors of various types of violence, which informs everything we do–including our approach to this website. As such, we take measures to ensure the privacy and safety of community members, including website users and those who make use of the resources and supports we offer.
A quick note about the leave site quickly button in our menus: This feature of our website is for users who may have their internet activity monitored by others, such as folks in abusive intimate or family relationships. When clicked, this button redirects the user to another site. This does not remove NRJ’s site from your search history, so be sure to delete this manually if you are concerned that your history is being monitored.
Niagara Reproductive Justice collects and stores certain information for the following reasons:
- Our community knowledge sharing surveys exist so we can better direct people to affirming, accessible healthcare and steer them away from questionable and harmful doctors and services. We also want to understand gaps in access.
- Our email sign up form collects your name and email address for the purpose of sending our newsletter and other updates through Mailchimp. You may unsubscribe or opt-out at any time by sending us an email or by following the link at the bottom of each of our newsletters.
- Additionally, because we rely on various external services such as Mailchimp and Google, those organization’s privacy and security policies govern any data they receive from us (such as your email address and name being shared with Mailchimp when we use it to manage our newsletter). Read more about this under “Information collected automatically” below.
Providing your personal information to NRJ is voluntary and optional. By filling out any of our forms, you agree to have your responses collected and reviewed by members of Niagara Reproductive Justice. We will not share any of this personal data provided with any third parties for any purposes apart from those cases listed above.

Information collected automatically
Like any website, NRJ has access to metadata sent by the browser when requesting web pages, such as your IP address, what browser you use, etc. We may use this data to infer how many users visit from a particular region or with a particular type of device so that we can make our website more useful.
Some third parties may have access to metadata in addition to other information, like websites using plug-ins, your web browser, browser extensions, or other services including anything that has access to your computer’s keyboard and clipboard.
Given that the principles of privacy and consent are important to NRJ, we have tried to limit the use of these services services as much as possible.
