All Personal Information in our custody and control will be collected, used and disclosed in accordance with the Personal Information Privacy Act (British Columbia) (“PIPA”).
PIPA defines “personal information” as information about an identifiable individual and includes “employee personal information” other than “contact information”. Examples of “personal information” include an individual’s name, home address, home email address, home phone number, age, financial information and family status and your computer’s internet protocol address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our site that you visit, the time and date of your visit and the time spent on those pages and other similar statistics. The definition of “employee personal information” means personal information about an individual that is collected, used or disclosed solely for the purposes reasonably required to establish, manage or terminate an employment relationship between the organization and that individual, but does not include personal information that is not about an individual’s employment. The definition of “contact information” means information to enable an individual at a place of business to be contacted and includes the name, position name or title, business telephone number, business address, business email, or business fax number of the individual.
“Personal Information” may include, but is not limited to, a person’s name, email address, residential address, telephone number, financial information and family status and, if a person uses the Website to apply for or consider career opportunities with us, any information with respect to that person (including that person’s work history, education, references and other information about that person) that is contained in that person’s application for employment and any supporting information including their curriculum vitae/resume and references and any information contained therein, that that person provides to us as a result of their inquiring with respect to, or applying for, a job with us.
