A. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Privacy of personal information is an important principle to King & Bay West Management Corp. (“KBW” or the “Company”). KBW is committed to collecting, using and disclosing personal information responsibly and only to the extent necessary.
KBW does not sell, rent or share your personal information. KBW will not disclose your personal information except when:
- authorized by you;
- required by law;
- permitted by law (e.g. medical emergency);
- the information is already publicly known; or
B. WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual, and includes information that relates to an individual’s personal characteristics (e.g., gender, age, income, home address, phone number, and family status). Personal information is different from business information (e.g., an individual’s business address and telephone number). Business information is not protected by privacy legislation.
C. WHO WE ARE
KBW includes its controlled subsidiaries. KBW uses a number of consultants and agencies that may, in the course of their duties, have limited access to the personal information that KBW holds. Their access to any personal information that KBW holds is restricted as much as is reasonably possible. KBW also has their assurance that they follow appropriate privacy principles.
D. WHY KBW COLLECTS PERSONAL INFORMATION
KBW collects personal information primarily to communicate with our stakeholders, potential stakeholders and others that might be interested in KBW and to improve communications to them. Information about our employees, contractors and suppliers is also collected for statutory and administrative purposes.
F. PROTECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION
KBW understands the importance of protecting your personal information and accordingly takes the following precautions:
- Paper information is either under supervision or secured in a locked or restricted area.
- Electronic hardware is either under supervision or secured in a locked or restricted area at all times. In addition, passwords are used on computers.
- Electronic information is transmitted either through a direct line or has identifiers removed or is encrypted.
G. RETENTION AND DESTRUCTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
KBW needs to retain your personal information for some time to ensure that any questions you might have about the services provided can be answered, and for accountability to external regulatory bodies. Contact directories are difficult to systematically destroy, and on your request your contact information will be removed to the extent possible.
KBW destroys paper files containing personal information by shredding them. Electronic information is destroyed by deleting it and, when the hardware is discarded KBW ensures that the hard drive is physically destroyed or electronically wiped.
H. YOU CAN LOOK AT YOUR INFORMATION
With few exceptions, you have the right to see what personal information of yours that KBW holds. If the KBW representative does not know you, it will be necessary for you to confirm your identity before KBW can provide you access to your personal information.
Access to your personal information can be denied if:
- denial is required or authorized by law;
- granting access would have an unreasonable impact on other people’s privacy;
- necessary to protect KBW’ rights and property; or
- the request is frivolous or vexatious.
You may be requested to put your access request or problems in writing. You will then be advised in writing if KBW cannot grant you access to your personal information.
If you believe there is a mistake in your personal information, you have the right to ask for it to be corrected. This applies to factual information only. KBW may ask you to provide documentation that our files are wrong. Where KBW agrees that a mistake was made, KBW will make the correction and, where appropriate, notify anyone to whom this information was sent. If KBW disagrees that a mistake was made, a brief statement from you on the point will be included in our file and, as appropriate, KBW will forward that statement to anyone else who received the earlier information.
