Sharing of Employee Personal Information

We may retain a service provider to perform on our behalf certain administrative services in support of our business.

Accordingly, in certain instances service providers may be provided with personal information to the extent that it is necessary in the performance of those specific administrative services provided to us.

Personal information may also be shared with our affiliates. Our affiliates are subject to and abide by this privacy policy.

Sometimes, individuals or organizations may ask for information about our existing or former employees.

Sometimes our former employees ask us to share their personal information with other organizations for the purposes of an employment reference. We do not provide employment references other than to confirm the position or positions held and the employee's tenure with us. An employee's request for a reference means that we are authorized to disclose such information to the person seeking the reference, or a person acting on their behalf.

Except where required or authorized at law, when personal information is no longer required for the purposes for which it has been collected, such personal information (if it continues to be in our possession) will be made anonymous or destroyed.

Personal Information may be stored and processed outside of Canada, including the United States. As such, personal information may be accessed by foreign governmental authorities and otherwise in accordance with the laws applicable in the jurisdiction in which it is stored.
