Fortified Home Inspections Ltd. is committed to safeguarding the personal information entrusted to us by our clients. We manage your personal information in accordance with Alberta’s Personal Information Protection Act and other applicable laws. This policy outlines the principles and practices we follow in protecting your personal information.
Personal information means information about an identifiable individual.
We collect only the personal information that we need for the purposes of providing home inspection services to our clients. Information is collected directly from our clients or an authorized representative.
We use and disclose client personal information only for the purpose for which the information was collected.
If we wish to use or disclose your personal information for any new business purpose, we will ask for your consent. We may not seek consent if the law allows this (e.g. the law allows organizations to use personal information without consent for the purpose of collecting a debt).
We protect personal information in a manner appropriate for the sensitivity of the information. We make every reasonable effort to prevent any loss, misuse, disclosure or modification of personal information, as well as any unauthorized access to personal information.
We retain personal information only as long as is reasonable to fulfill the purposes for which the information was collected or for legal or business purposes.
Individuals have the right to access their own personal information in a record that is in the custody or under the control of Fortified Home Inspections Ltd., subject to some exceptions. For example, organizations are required under the Personal Information Protection Act to refuse to provide access to information that would reveal personal information about another individual.
You may request information about our use of your personal information and any disclosure of that information to persons outside our organization. In addition, you may request a correction of an error or omission in your personal information.
If you have a question or concern about any collection, use or disclosure of personal information by Fortified Home Inspections Ltd., or about a request for access to your own personal information, please contact Kevan Rapley.
