Rivard Investigations will identify the purpose for collecting and using personal information prior to doing so. We will obtain expressed or use implied consent as required and allowed by PIPEDA. We will only collect and use personal information for the specified purpose. Once the information is no longer required by our client, it will be destroyed. We have various safeguards in place to protect the personal information which we have secured or been provided. Various measures include but are not limited too; locked filing cabinets, alarm systems, passwords on computers and extensive training on handling personal information. If an individual wishes to have access to their information we have on file, they must do so in writing and provide as much information as possible to allow us to make the appropriate decision to grant or deny the release of that information as required by PIPEDA.
