This policy and related procedures are consistent with the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information (herein ‘CSA Model Code”) and applicable privacy legislation.
Limits for Collecting, Using, Disclosing and Keeping Personal Information Pimex does not collect, use or disclose personal information of individuals except when individuals give consent and provide the information on a voluntary basis. There may be occasions where more specific personal information is necessary for Pimex to proceed with a request for information, or provide a product or service. In such cases, Pimex will describe the information required. In all such cases, Pimex limits the amount and type of information collected to only the personal information that is required to provide the individual with the requested information, product, or service. Pimex collects only information that is voluntarily provided by the individual and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential.
Pimex may disclose personal information collected by it without the knowledge or consent of the individual, for example to its lawyers; for purposes relating to an investigation under, the enforcement of or the administration of a law or where required by law to disclose the information. Pimex will not use or disclose personal information without the knowledge or consent of the individual except as authorized by applicable law.
Pimex retains personal information only as long as is necessary to provide the individual with the requested product, service or information. For example, if personal information is given to register for an event, the personal information will only be used for this event and will then be deleted or destroyed. In some cases, however, legal reporting or retention requirements necessitate that Pimex retains information for a specific amount of time. In general, Pimex retains personal information for a period not longer than seven years, in secure storage.
