Our Commitment to Privacy

BCNET is subject to the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) and other jurisdictional private and public sector privacy legislation of our clients.  We are committed to protecting the privacy of our clients and employees.  It is our goal to not only meet the requirements of this legislation, but to exceed the requirements by implementing “best practices” with respect to the collection, use, disclosure and security of the personal information in our custody and control.

BCNET also requires our third-party service providers to demonstrate full compliance with our privacy obligations, principles and processes outlined in this policy. 

We only collect personal information as supplied by our clients and employees in support of the programs and services provided.  Only that information which relates directly to, and is necessary for, the operation of our programs is collected.  We do not collect personal information unlawfully or unfairly.  In most circumstances, we only collect personal information directly from the relevant individual.  Indirect collection occurs only in very limited and specific circumstances, or as required by law.

Collected personal information will only be used by authorized BCNET staff, to fulfill the purpose for which it was originally collected, for specific purposes if directed by the individual from whom the personal information is being collected, or for a use consistent with the original purpose.

We do not sell, share or disclose your information to others for any type of mailing list.

BCNET, its employees and service providers administer the highest security standards to ensure that the personal information in their custody and/or control is secured at all times.  Physical and technical security of all data (including all data at rest or in transit) must meet all applicable security standards required by their organization.
