SCOPE OF POLICY
The Company will obtain your consent to collect, use or disclose personal information except where the Company is authorized or required by law to do so without consent. The Company will make reasonable efforts to ensure that you understand how your personal information will be used and disclosed. Your consent may be express or implied, or given through an authorized representative such as a lawyer, agent or broker. You can withdraw your consent at any time, however, the Company may collect, use or disclose personal information without your knowledge or consent in exceptional circumstances such as: a. the use of information is for acting in an emergency that threatens an individual’s life, health or personal security; b. the information is publicly available; c. the Company is collecting or paying a debt; d. the Company is obtaining legal advice; or e. the Company reasonably expects that obtaining consent would compromise an investigation or proceeding. Consent may be provided orally, in writing, electronically, through inaction (such as when you fail to notify the Company that you do not wish your personal information collected/used/disclosed for optional purposes following reasonable notice to you) or otherwise. For example, oral consent could be expressed over the telephone when information is being collected; electronically when submitting an agreement, application or other information; or in writing when signing an agreement or application form. You may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions, provided reasonable written notice of withdrawal of consent is given by you to the Company. Upon receipt of your written notice, the Company will inform you of the likely consequences of the withdrawal, which may include the inability of the Company to provide certain products or services for which the delivery of that information is a prerequisite. If the information is required by law, the Company may decline to deal with a person who will not consent to the use of such information.

The Company will make a reasonable effort to ensure that personal information it is using or disclosing is accurate, complete and current as required for the purposes for which it was collected. In most cases, the Company will rely on you to ensure that certain information, such as your street address, e-mail address or telephone number, is current, complete and accurate. The Company will not routinely update information unless it is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. You may request amendments to your personal information in our records.

SAFEGUARDING PERSONAL INFORMATION
The Company is committed to the safekeeping of your personal information in order to prevent its loss, theft, unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, duplication, or modification. Depending on the sensitivity of the information, the Company will take appropriate security measures to protect the information. In addition, the Company will take reasonable steps, through contractual or other reasonable means, to ensure that suppliers and agents who assist the Company in providing products and services to you or to whom the Company discloses personal information with your consent, implement a comparable level of personal information protection. Some specific safeguards include, for example, the physical security of offices, and electronic security measures such as passwords and firewalls, and personal identification numbers. Confidentiality and security are not assured when information is transmitted through email or other wireless communication, and therefore if you choose to communicate with the Company in this manner, it is at your own risk. The Company will not be responsible for any loss or damage suffered as a result of a breach of security or confidentiality when you transmit information to the Company by e-mail or other wireless communication or when the Company transmits such information by such means. The Company will use appropriate security measures when disposing of your personal information so as to prevent unauthorized access to such information. The development of the Company’s policies and procedures for the protection of personal information is an ongoing process.

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service ("Service Providers"), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.

The Company may charge a reasonable fee for providing personal information in response to an access request and will provide an estimate of any such fee upon receiving a written access to personal information request.

The Company will make the personal information available within 30 days or provide written notice where additional time is required to fulfill the request. In some situations, the Company may not be able to provide access to certain personal information. This may be the case where, for example, disclosure would reveal personal information about another individual, the personal information is protected by solicitor/client privilege, the information was collected for the purpose of an investigation or where there are legal, security or commercial proprietary reasons for not providing access to certain personal information.
