General information

Why does the UVic Alumni Association offer affinity programs?

The UVic Alumni Association has negotiated group rates for UVic alumni with a variety of Canadian companies. Affinity programs offer alumni the opportunity to support the university while benefiting from services such as travel, investment, insurance or credit cards. When you use our partners' products or services a portion of your purchase is returned to the association. Those revenues support student and alumni programs.

Why do I get mail and/or e-mail about affinity programs?

From time to time the UVic Alumni Association will be contacting you by mail or e-mail to update you on products or services offered to UVic alumni. The materials are supplied by our affinity partners but mailed by the UVic Alumni Association.

Is your personal information given or sold to our affinity partners?

No, it is not. An independent mail house that has agreed to our privacy policy manages the mailing process to ensure confidentiality of your personal data. Your personal information remains confidential and is never released to any of our affinity partners.

Can I ask to be excluded from these mailings?

Yes. We respect your privacy. Visit our subscription preferences page and select what you want or don't want to receive from the UVic Alumni Association. We will ensure that your information is accurate and treated according to your wishes.
