Grey Ministries is committed to providing clients, customers and members with exceptional service. Providing this service involves the collection, use and disclosure of some personal information about clients, customers and members so protecting personal information is a high priority.
While I have always respected clients, customers and members privacy and have safeguarded their personal information, I've strengthened my commitment to protecting personal information as a result of British Columbia’s Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA).
I will inform clients, customers and members of why and how I collect, use and disclose their personal information, obtain their consent where required, and only handle their personal information in a manner that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances.
This Personal Information Protection Policy, in compliance with PIPA, outlines the principles and practices I will follow in protecting clients’, customers’ and members’ personal information. Grey Ministries privacy commitment includes ensuring the accuracy, confidentiality, and security of all clients’, customers’ and members’ personal information and allowing clients, customers and members to request access to, and correction of, their personal information.
This Personal Information Protection Policy applies to Grey Ministries. This policy also applies to any service providers collecting, using or disclosing personal information on behalf of Grey Ministries.
