The BC Electrical Association recognizes your right to confidentiality and is committed to protecting your privacy. As part of our commitment, we have outlined key areas of Privacy Protection to govern our actions as they relate to your information. These are based on criteria found in Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.
The purposes for which customer information is collected shall be clearly identified before or at the time the information is collected.
The knowledge and consent of the customer are required for the collection, use or disclosure of customer information except where required or permitted by law. Knowledge and consent may be assumed from registration or request for service from a customer.
The customer information collected will be limited to those details necessary for the purposes identified by the BC Electrical Association. The information will be collected by fair and lawful means.
Limiting Use and Disclosure
Customer information may only be used or disclosed for the purpose for which it was collected unless the customer has otherwise consented, or when it is required or permitted by law. Customer information will only be retained for the period of time required to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected.
Customer information will be maintained in as accurate, complete and up-to-date form as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is to be used.
Safeguarding Customer Information
Customer information will be protected by security safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity level of the information.
You can visit most pages on our site without giving us any information about yourself. But sometimes we do need information to provide services that you request, and this privacy statement explains data collection and use in those situations.
Customers may direct any questions or enquires with respect to the privacy principles outlined above or about our practices by contacting the BC Electrical Association directly.
