Protecting the privacy and confidentiality of personal information is an important aspect of the way PageNet conducts its business. Collecting, using, and disclosing personal information in an appropriate, responsible, and ethical manner is fundamental to PageNet’s daily operations. The Company strives to protect and respect personal information of its customers, employees, business partners, and so on in accordance with all applicable federal and provincial laws and regulations, including the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). Furthermore, each team member abides by this organization’s procedures and practices when handling personal information
Personal information is defined as any identifying information about an individual or group of individuals, including name, date of birth, address, phone number, email address, social insurance number, nationality, gender, financial data, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, payment records, and credit records. PageNet obtains identifying information directly from the individual to which the information belongs and will limit the use of any personal information collected only to what is needed for the stated purpose, and for the purpose of managing the business and operations within legal and regulatory requirements. PageNet will obtain individual consent if personal information is to be used for any other purpose. PageNet will not use that information without the consent of the individual.
Under no circumstances will personal information be sold, distributed, or otherwise disclosed to third parties. However, limited disclosure may be required as part of PageNet fulfilling its stated business duties and day-to-day operations. This may include consultants, suppliers, or business partners of PageNet, but only with the understanding that these parties obey and abide by this Policy, to the extent necessary of fulfilling their own business duties and day-to-day operations.
Personal information will be retained only for the duration it is needed for conducting business and once no longer required, will be destroyed in a safe and secure manner. However, certain laws may require that certain personal information be kept for a specified amount of time. Where this is the case, the law will supersede this policy.
PageNet vows to protect personal information with the appropriate security measures, physical safeguards, and electronic precautions and assumes full accountability for the personal information within its possession and control.
