Our Commitment to Your Privacy
Wortzmans, a division of McCarthy Tétrault LLP is committed to the privacy of all of our clients and their information. We comply with our obligations under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and provide our clients with the assurance that the privacy of their information is as important to us as it is to them.
At Wortzmans your personal information is always kept confidential, in our on-going efforts to protect our clients and business partners.
Wortzmans is accountable for the personal information provided to us. When collecting or receiving personal information we will clearly identify the purposes for which that information is gathered. We will inform and receive the consent of all individuals for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information, except as required by law.
We limit the collection of personal information to the amount and type of personal information we require for the identified and disclosed purposes. We take reasonable and appropriate precautions to guard your personal information from loss, unauthorized use, alteration, or disclosure. We retain personal information only as long as is necessary to fulfill the identified purposes for which it was collected. We do not sell, rent or loan any personal information.
Access and Compliance
Upon request, Wortzmans will provide access to you regarding any personal information about you we have collected. We will endeavour to respond to such requests for information in a timely fashion. Please note that we do have the right to refuse your request for information in certain limited circumstances, which include situations that would disclose personal information about someone else, confidential commercial information, situations where the safety or security of someone else is at stake, information protected by solicitor-client privilege, or information collected which is related to the detection and prevention of fraud.
You have the right to challenge our compliance with PIPEDA. We will take appropriate steps to clarify or correct our policies and procedures related to personal information, as required.
