What Constitutes Personal Information?
Personal information is broadly defined in PIPEDA as any factual or subjective information, recorded or not, about an identifiable individual. Personal information may include an individual’s name, email address, home address, or credit card and other financial information. There are some exceptions to this definition including certain information that is publicly available and certain business contact information such as an employee’s name, title, business address, telephone number, or email address.
We will not collect, use, disclose, or retain any of your personal information without first obtaining your consent to do so. In seeking your consent, we will identify the purposes for which your personal information is being collected. In some situations, your consent may not be required for us to use and disclose your personal information, such as when the use or disclosure of your personal information is permitted or required by law. You may withdraw your consent at any time by providing us with written notice. However, the withdrawal of your consent may prevent us from communicating and maintaining a relationship with you.
Safeguards and Retention
We will protect your personal information by using security safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of your personal information including, without limitation, physical, technological (such as passwords, encryption technology, and firewalls), contractual and organizational security safeguards. We also take measures to maintain the integrity, accuracy and completeness of your personal information and to prevent your personal information from being lost or destroyed.
We will retain your personal information only for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which your personal information was collected or as otherwise required or permitted by law.
