RVPG will only collect, use and disclose the information necessary for its identified purposes. If RVPG wishes to collect, use or disclose an individual’s personal information for a new purpose, RVPG will inform the individual of this new purpose and obtain his/her consent to this, except where such collection, use or disclosure without consent is permitted or required by law.

For example, where an individual withdraws consent to the uses of his or her personal information as set out in the foregoing section “Customers, Suppliers and Other Individuals”, such withdrawal may result in RVPG being unable to provide its services to such individual.
RVPG will use reasonable and appropriate measures to ensure the confidentiality and protection of personal information against loss, theft, unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, disposal, destruction or similar risks. The methods of protection used include: Physical measures such as locked filing cabinets, Technological measures, such as the use of passwords and encryption.

These guidelines include those set out in the Operations Manual regarding systems security and communications technology use. Personal information of customers, suppliers, and other individuals will only be accessed by RVPG’s employees on a need-to-know basis. RVPG is responsible for personal information in its possession or custody, including information that has been transferred to a third party for processing. Therefore, if RVPG transfers personal information to third party contractors, it will require those contractors to covenant with it that they will provide the same security protection over the information as RVPG.
RVPG will use reasonable efforts to ensure that personal information is as accurate, complete and up-to-date as is necessary for identified purposes. This is to minimize the possibility that inaccurate information could be used to make a decision about an individual. To ensure the foregoing, RVPG requires each individual who provides RVPG with personal information to ensure that that information is accurate, complete and up-to-date. If the personal information of an individual changes we expect that the individual or employee will make RVPG aware of those changes so that we can update the personal information in question.

In certain circumstances, RVPG is required by law to remove certain types of personal information from a document that contains personal information about the individual applicant, and then provide the individual access to this document.

Where the personal information is the subject of a request from an individual, RVPG will retain the information for as long as is necessary to allow the individual to exhaust any recourse under the applicable privacy laws. RVPG will destroy or anonymize personal information when it no longer needs to retain the information for the purpose for which it was collected, and retention is no longer necessary for legal or business purposes. When destroying or anonymizing this information, RVPG will use appropriate security measures to ensure that the confidentiality of this information is maintained.
