Human resource files as well as information regarding payroll and benefits coverage is accessible to those Company individuals who have been designated with such authority and only to the extent necessary to accomplish the objectives we’ve described above, or to the Company’s relevant benefits and/or payroll providers. All personal employee/contractor information maintained within the Company is centrally located and is maintained secure and confidential. All personal information provided to the Company’s benefits and/or payroll providers is disclosed only upon assurances that those providers maintain similar standards of personal information protection.

How Long Will the Company Retain Your Information?

We retain your information for only so long as is necessary for the purposes for which it has been collected. Your personal information will be destroyed once it is no longer needed by us and once all requirements at law have been met.

Have You Consented?

There are some instances where we may need to disclose personal information to a third party service provider, including those in the landscaping, lifestyle, marketing and advertising sectors. Where you have indicated accordingly, you agree that we may also share your personal information with these service providers to help us analyze the information we collect so that we can administer, support, improve and develop our business and services to you. Personal Information shared with such third parties will be used in accordance with such third parties’ own privacy practices which the Company does not have control over so you should review such privacy practices before agreeing to have your personal information shared with such third parties. In the event that a third party service provider is located outside of Canada, the government, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of that jurisdiction may be able to obtain disclosure of your personal information through the laws of that jurisdiction.

By submitting your personal information to us, you have consented to our use and disclosure of the personal information for the purposes as outlined in this policy. If we wish to use or disclose your personal information other than as described in this policy, we will obtain your express consent before doing so.

If you prefer that we not use or disclose your personal information for any of these purposes, you may notify us in writing at any time. If you do not notify us, we will consider you to have consented to our continued use and disclosure of your personal information. A notification that we not use or disclose your personal information for certain purposes may affect our ability to provide you with products and/or services and may require that you discontinue using the Website.

Please note that from time to time, we may be compelled to release personal information as required or permitted by law.

How Can You Access Your Personal Information?

You have the right to access, update, and correct inaccuracies in your personal information in our custody and control, subject to certain exceptions prescribed by law. You may request access, updating and corrections of inaccuracies in the personal information we have in our custody or control by emailing us at the contact information set out below. We may request certain personal information for the purposes of verifying your identity when requesting access to or correction of your personal information records. If your request for personal information entails a significant cost due to time, resources or copying, there may be a charge.
