HOW TO USE THIS DOCUMENT
This document is meant to be used by a private-sector organization who wants to keep a policy on-hand that advises their clients and customers how the organization uses, collects and discloses the client's personal information in the course of the organization's commercial activities.
A copy of this policy should be made available on the organization's main website page. Also, whenever an organization invoices or deals with a customer or client, the organization should send a copy of this policy to the customer or client alongside their invoice.
The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (S.C. 2000, c. 5) is a federal statute (law) that governs how private-sector organizations collect, use, and disclose personal information of individuals while in the course of commercial activities. Some Provinces will have a piece of legislation that parallels this law.
