From January 1, 2004, all businesses engaged in commercial activities must comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, and the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information, which it incorporates. These obligations extend to lawyers and law firms, including CSM. The Act gives you rights concerning the privacy of your personal information. Conducted Sales is responsible for the personal information we collect and hold. To ensure this accountability, we have developed this policy, and trained our lawyers and support staff about our policies and practices
CSM provides products to a wide range of customers. In doing so, it produces direct marketing materials concerning its products and services.
Personal information is any information that identifies you, or by which your identity could be deduced. If we did not collect and use your personal information, we are unable to process your Product Shipments, Product Registration or Service Request forms.
In most cases, we shall ask you to specifically consent, if we collect, use, or disclose your personal information. Normally, we ask for your consent in writing, but in some circumstances, we may accept your oral consent. Sometimes, your consent may be implied through your conduct with us.
CSM takes all reasonable precautions to ensure that your personal information is kept safe from loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. Among the steps taken to protect your information are:
. premises security;
. restricted file access to personal information;
. deploying technological safeguards like security software and firewalls to prevent hacking or unauthorized computer access;
. internal password and security policies.
