Certain customer information may be transmitted to a government entity (e.g. Health Canada) or trusted third-party service provider (e.g. medical doctors) without specific consent.

Customer Access

Upon request in writing to the Quality Assurance Manager, a customer will be informed of the existence, use and disclosure of his/her own customer personal information and will be given access to that information. A customer may challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as appropriate.

A customer can ask to correct any personal information. The request for routine updates to customer personal information such as address changes, name changes, or beneficiary changes, can be made directly to the staff responsible for maintaining such information.

The request for changes of other information, such as deletion of or changes to file records must be directed in writing to the attention of the Quality Assurance Manager. The Company reserves the right to refuse such a request. Refusal would include situations such as employer/solicitor privilege, where disclosure would affect the personal information of another customer, or the health and/or safety of a customer or another person. If the Company determines the request to be unreasonable, the request for correction will be noted on the copies of the personal information in question. If the Company is satisfied that the customer’s request is reasonable, it will correct the information as soon as possible.

 

Challenging Compliance

Any challenge concerning the Company’s compliance with this Policy should be submitted in writing to the Quality Assurance Manager.

The Company reserves the right to amend this Policy at any time and for any reason. A current Policy will always be available from the Quality Assurance Manager.
