At Lewis-Daly & Associates, the protection of your personal information is a top priority. The following statement explains our policies and practices regarding the use and disclosure of your personal information by Lewis-Daly & Associates. This statement was developed in response to Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act ("PIPEDA"). By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of your personal information by Lewis-Daly & Associates as explained below.
What is personal information?
Personal information includes any factual or subjective information, recorded or not, about an identifiable individual. This includes information in any form such as a personal e-mail address, credit card numbers, home addresses and so on. It does not include information normally found on a business card, such as name, title, company, business address, business telephone or fax number. Identifying Purposes: Lewis-Daly & Associates will identify the purposes for which personal information is collected at or before the time the information is collected, unless the purpose is self-evident due to the nature of the transaction in question. (An example of a self-evident purpose is requesting the name and address of the person placing an order for an online product).
Collection of Personal Information:
Our primary purpose in collecting personal information from you and about you is to ensure the provision of high quality online services. We only collect personal information from and about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose (e.g., we collect personal information such as name, address, contact information and credit card information when you order online products through our PayPal portal).
Lewis-Daly & Associates will collect, use or disclose your personal information only with your knowledge and consent, except where required or permitted by law. Consent can be express or, in some circumstances, implied (e.g., by using or not using a check-off box, electronically, or by your conduct, such as use of an online service.)
Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention:
The collection of personal information by Lewis-Daly & Associates will be limited to what is necessary for the purposes which it identifies. Lewis-Daly & Associates will not use or disclose personal information for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with your consent or as required or permitted by law. It will be retained only as long as necessary for these purposes or as required by law.
