Losani Homes is committed to respecting the privacy of individuals and recognizes the need of people with whom we do business (new home purchasers, tenants and tradespeople), and employees for the appropriate management and protection of any personal Information that you agree to provide to us.
Our Privacy Management Plan includes guidelines on the collection, storage, use and retention of your Personal Information as follows:
The organization collects personal information about individuals (clients, suppliers, employees, etc) in order to better manage it’s business. The organization will make all reasonable efforts to fully inform such individuals about the planned use/disclosure. The organization will limit the collection and use of personal information to that required for valid business purposes or to comply with legislation.
In order to maintain uniform standards of disclosure and procurement of consent, the organization uses the attached standard form attached as Schedule "A" to this policy. Schedule "A" may be amended from time to time.
The organization will store personal information using hard copy and/or electronic means in such a way as to prevent unauthorized collection, access, use, disclosure or disposal of the personal information.
The organization will establish a retention period for all personal information collected. This period may be related to legislation other than PIPEDA such as the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act and the Limitations Act (Ontario).
The organization will not disclose personal information unnecessarily to employees or any third party, unless the effected individual consents. Certain third party disclosure is required for the organization’s business (eg: public utility corporations for initial home service account setup).
The organization promotes individual’s right of access to personal information about themselves. The employer will provide access to information upon request. Access will be provided according to established procedures. Note: access to a record may be subject to the payment of any fee required according to organization policy.
In addition to the care that Losani Homes takes directly, we are also working with all of our partner organizations that may at some point handle personal information gathered by us in the course of their relationship with and service to us. Each third party partner has agreed to maintain similar standards of privacy, confidentiality and security.
