8. Security of Personal Information
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us through our Websites, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Websites, you can contact our Privacy Officer (see contact information below).
More generally, 460 will make reasonable efforts to ensure that personal information is protected against such risks as loss, theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, modification or destruction. Safeguards include physical, administrative and electronic security measures.
If personal information is disclosed to a third party in accordance with this policy, 460 will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the third party has appropriate security procedures in place for the protection of the personal information transferred to it.
We may use third-party service providers (for example, web hosting providers and/or payment processers) to manage one or more aspects of our business operations, including the processing or handling of personal information. When we do use an outside company, we use contractual or other appropriate means to ensure that personal information is used in a manner that is consistent with this policy. As stated above, information may be stored, accessed or used outside of Canada; see “General Use” under “Use of Personal Information” above.
460 will make reasonable efforts to ensure that personal information is as accurate, complete and current, as required for the purposes for which it was collected.
In some cases, 460 relies on employees to ensure that certain information about them, such as their home address and phone number, bank account information or emergency contact information, is current, complete and accurate.
The Privacy Legislation allows any individual the right to access and/or request the correction of errors or omissions in his or her personal information that is in our custody or under our control. Our Privacy Officer will assist you with such an access request. This includes:
- (a) Identification of personal information under our custody or control.
- (b) Information about how personal information under our control may be or has been used by us.
- (c) The names of any individuals and organizations to which the individual’s personal information has been disclosed.
We will respond to requests within the time allowed by the Privacy Legislation and will make every effort to respond as accurately and completely as possible. Any corrections made to personal information will be promptly sent to any organization it was disclosed to.
In certain exceptional circumstances, we may not be able to provide access to certain personal information we hold about an individual. If access cannot be provided, we will notify the individual making the request within 30 days, in writing, of the reasons for the refusal.
