“Personal Information” is defined as information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title or business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization. This is a very broad definition and may encompass most types of information held such as race, medical, criminal, employment and financial history. The legislation only applies to information collected, used or disclosed in the course of commercial dealings.
It also includes, for example, an individual’s address, telephone number, date of birth, family status, marital status, occupation, driver’s license, driving record information, mortgage and loan details, an individual’s previous insurance experience, including claims history, individual’s driving record, policy number and vehicle identity number.
We recognize that some Personal Information is highly sensitive, and we consider the sensitivity of the information in deciding how we will use it, and, if appropriate, disclose it, and in how we will obtain your consent to such use and disclosure.
