THE SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION IS OUR TOP PRIORITY
BlackBox is determined to exceed expectations with regards to the confidentiality and security of personal information submitted to us by applicants and members. Our policies on privacy and the security of your personal information were developed from the ground up to fully comply with Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. The ten principles that govern our practices with regards to personal information are outlined below.
BlackBox is responsible for the maintenance and protection of personal information. We take every precaution possible when handling information provided to us by applicants and members alike. We have appointed an individual who is responsible for compliance with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.
The purposes for which we require personal information will be clearly identified and communicated before or at the point of collection. Additionally, we have created pages which display both written explanations regarding the basics of our personal information collection and protection practices. For more information on the information we collect and how it is used, please contact us.
BlackBox will only collect, use, and retain personal information required in order to:
Review member applications
Fulfill online orders
Maintain member relations
Comply with federal and/or provincial regulations
Operate in a lawful manner
LIMITING USE, DISCLOSURE & RETENTION
Personal information is only used or disclosed for the purpose for which it was collected, unless consent is given otherwise, or where required or permitted by law. Personal information is only retained for the length of time needed for it to fulfill its original purpose or as required by law.
In order to minimize the possibility of discrepancies, all information must be kept accurate, complete and up to date. If there are any changes in the personal information provided during registration it is the responsibility of the registrant to update said information by editing their online profile, or by contacting BlackBox.
According to federal regulations, all personal information must be protected by appropriate safeguards based on the sensitivity of the said information. BlackBox is determined to go above and beyond the requirements set out by regulators when it comes to the security of the personal information of our applicants and members. We use state of the art security in every aspect of data collection and retention. All visits to the website are encrypted from beginning to end, ensuring a safe and secure web session.
