Policy

The Salvation Army values excellence, co-operation and integrity in the accomplishment of its mission. As part of accomplishing its mission, the Canada and Bermuda Territory has invested heavily in computer technology. That investment is intended to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the employees, with the ultimate goal of better serving the spiritual and social needs of our clients and members.

Policies have been established in order to help minimize the overall cost while maximizing the availability and security of the computing resources of the territory. The Computer Access Policy document is divided into two sections. The first section states the policies. The appendix provides rationales and information for each policy.

The management of the organization may require access to data at any time, even in an employee’s absence. In addition, the IT Department must be able to assist in the recovery of lost or damaged data. In order for this to be possible, users cannot expect total privacy in the use of the organization’s computer resources. Nevertheless, the IT Department does not intentionally or continuously monitor the actions and communications within the organization. Where possible, the policies consider the desires of the officers and employees while continuing to protect the organization’s investment in technology and data. However, all data and e-mail communication ultimately are the property of The Salvation Army.

All users who request computer accounts with The Salvation Army Canada and Bermuda Territory are asked to sign a Computer Access Policy document stating they have read the policy document before access is granted.
The full Computer Access Policy document is available from saDashboard, Technical Support, FAQ & Info.
