On January 1, 2004, the third phase of the Canadian Federal Law about Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) came into effect. This Act governs information collected as part of commercial activity by any private sector organization. It states that information must be gathered with consent, collected for a reasonable purpose, used for the limited purpose for which it was gathered, be accurate, be open for the owner's inspection and correction, and stored securely. Manage Your IT Ltd. (MyIT) already maintains a high level of security with respect to the confidentiality of your personal information but we are now obligated by law to advise and obtain consent to the terms of collection, disclosure and storage of your data.
The following outlines our 7 principles to which we adhere in protecting your personal information.
MyIT is responsible to protect all personal information under its control. Personal information can include name, business address, department, phone number, Fax Number, e-mail address, credit card information and other information that relates to you as a client. MyIT has appointed a Privacy Officer, who is responsible for our accountability and compliance.
2. Identifying Purposes
The reasons client information is collected by MyIT include:
Type of Information Collected
The type of information we collect from you relates to your activities related to our business only.
How it's Collected
Information is collected directly from you through surveys, online registration, and requests for information. It is also collected during your meeting with our sales people.
3. Limiting Collection
Information collected will only be expressly used for the purpose of sales and marketing of products and services provided by MyIT. MyIT will not indiscriminately collect or maintain personal information on its guests.
4. Limiting Use
MyIT does not disclose your client information for any purposes other than, for which it was originally collected.
Personal information will be maintained in an accurate, complete and up-to-date format as it is necessary and reasonably practical to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected.
MyIT protects client information by security safeguards, which are appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. These include premises security; locked filing cabinets; information technology security such as restricted access to specific programs, firewalls and software security; and restricting access to client information only to those employees and partners to which it is necessary. We keep our employees up-to-date on policies and procedures regarding protecting client information.
We may use the services of a third party to process credit card payment, however, we ensure there are confidentiality agreements in place so that your information is protected while in their possession.
