Policy on the protection of personal information
Definition of “personal information”
When used in this policy and in accordance with Canadian privacy laws, “personal information” is defined as any information about an identifiable individual, which can include, for example, your name, date of birth, mailing address, email address, CV, SIN, banking information, group insurance, and pension plan.
Personal information can also include more technical information such as your IP address. This can thus apply to any person who visits the difuze website, but only with regard to information that can identify you. Moreover, information that has been pooled or rendered anonymous and that cannot be associated with an identifiable individual, is not considered to be personal information.
Personal information that is collected and how it is used
We limit our collection of personal information to what is reasonably required for specific purposes. Information that we may collect depending on the nature of our relationship with you includes:
– First and last name
– Date of birth
– Telephone number
– Email address
– Social insurance number
– Banking information
Please note that we do not collect, use, or disclose your personal information without your consent except where required or permitted by law. This information may be collected in various ways, including the following:
a) Directly from you
When you first contact us, we may collect certain personal information from you. This may happen, for example, if you submit an application for employment to our website or mail us a CV.
If you contact us to request a demonstration of our products or services, we may collect certain specific information from you to help us determine your needs.
b) Other sources
During the hiring process, we may request personal information from outside sources who are helping us with our search. However, we would not do so without first obtaining your consent.
For example, we may request information about your academic background or request your consent for a criminal record check to confirm the accuracy of the information you have provided us before proceeding with the hiring process.
c) Other authorized purposes
In exceptional circumstances, difuze may be required to disclose personal information to comply with a law, a regulation, a court order, a subpoena, a valid formal notice, or a search warrant or in the case of a government inquiry or any other legally valid request for information.
We may also share your information with our accountants, auditors, agents, or lawyers in the interest of protecting or exercising our legal rights.
d) With your consent
It is possible that, in addition to the above-mentioned purposes, we may, with your implicit or implied consent and in keeping with applicable law, communicate or disclose your personal information with persons or entities outside our group of companies.
