How Long Will the Company Retain Personal Information?

Personal information is only retained for so long as is necessary for the purposes for which it has been collected.  Personal information will be destroyed once it is no longer needed by us and once all requirements at law have been met.

 

Consent

There are some instances where we may need to disclose personal information to a third party service provider.  Whenever we engage a third party service provider, we confirm that its privacy and security standards meet our requirements.  In the event that a third party service provider is located outside of Canada, the government, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of that jurisdiction may be able to obtain disclosure of your personal information through the laws of that jurisdiction.  By submitting your personal information to us, you have consented to our use and disclosure of the personal information for the purposes as outlined in this policy.  If we wish to use or disclose your personal information other than as described in this policy, we will obtain your express consent before doing so.

If you prefer that we not use or disclose your personal information for any of these purposes, you may notify us in writing at any time.  If you do not notify us, we will consider you to have consented to our continued use and disclosure of your personal information.  A notification that we not use or disclose your personal information for certain purposes may affect our ability to provide you with products and/or services.

 

Please note that from time to time, we may be compelled to release personal information as required or permitted by law.

 

How Can You Access Your Personal Information?

Your personal information, hard copy or electronic, is accessible to you.  However please note that if your information is combined with information of others (such as payroll spreadsheets), you will not be granted access to such information unless we are able to segment your personal information.  If your request for personal information entails a significant cost due to time, resources or copying, there may be a charge.
