"Personal Information" means information about an identifiable individual but does not include the name, title, business address, or telephone number of any employee of any organization.
Personal Information is information which can be identified with a specific person, either solely on the basis of the information collected by ILAP®, or in conjunction with other information regarding a person that is well known or reasonably available.
ILAP® collects, uses, and discloses Personal Information relating to ILAP®'s business, as it reasonably considers to be appropriate in the circumstances:
ILAP collects Personal Information from its customers. ILAP® is an internet sevice provider. ILAP provides internet access, co-location, web-site hosting, web-site development, email, email filter services, and internet related value added services to its customers ("Services"). Typically ILAP enters into agreements with its customers to provide internet Services ("Service Agreements").
In order to perform the Services, ILAP needs the technical capability to access, collect, or use information and data regarding its customer's access to and use of the Services. This information and data may include information about data transmissions (including the originating and destination IP addresses, or telephone numbers, date, time and duration of data or voice internet protocol transmissions), the identity and IP addresses of email senders and recipients, email content, and other data necessary for the establishment, billing or maintenance of the Services ("Customer Data").
Customer Data is identifiable with the customer and may be identifiable with an individual.
ILAP does not exercise discretion, selection, or control over the access to, use, content, or communication of Customer Data. ILAP does not in the ordinary course collect Customer Data which is identifiable with an individual.
ILAP considers it to be reasonable and appropriate to collect Personal Information in the course of investigating violations of its Acceptable Use Policy, to the extend necessary to identify the nature of the violation and customer responsibility.
In summary, ILAP collects Personal Information from its customers:
ILAP collects Personal Information from employees and persons applying for employment:
ILAP collects Personal Information with respect to former employees:
ILAP collects Personal Information from any person ILAP® may deal with, including customers, employees or former employees:
The Personal Information that ILAP® collects, uses, and discloses is stored and processed on computers located in Canada.
If ILAP® plans to use or disclose Personal Information which it has collected for a purpose not previously identified, ILAP® will identify and document this purpose.
Personal Information will only be collected, used, or disclosed with the knowledge and consent of the individual, except where inappropriate. ILAP® may obtain consent from an individual orally (such as over the telephone), in writing, by e-mail, through ILAP's website at http://www.ilap.com/, or by other electronic means. Consent may be given expressly (such as by completing and submitting a form to ILAP® by mail, by facsimile transmission, by e-mail, through ILAP's website, or by other electronic means) or implicitly (such as by posting a notice on ILAP's website that the user of the website consents to the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information about such user through the user's use, or continued use, of the website).
The way in which ILAP® will seek consent, including whether express or implied consent is sought, may vary depending on the sensitivity of the Personal Information and the reasonable expectation of the individual supplying it.
Service Agreements. Typically, ILAP® will seek consent in its Service Agreements with its customers, to the collection, use, or disclosure of Personal Information to the extent necessary for ILAP to provide the Service, before the Service is performed and before the Personal Information is collected.
ILAP® will request users of its Services to voluntarily provide Personal Information about themselves by having such customers complete a form of Service Agreement, and by entering into a Service Agreement electronically indicating their acceptance and intention to enter into the Service Agreement (a "click through" agreement). If a website user voluntarily provides Personal Information to ILAP® by using ILAP®'s website, or by entering into a click through agreement at our website, information collected by our website and sent over the internet to ILAP® will be received, processed, and stored by ILAP® for use by ILAP® for the stated purpose for which it was collected, in a secure database.
ILAP® does not, as a condition of providing its Services, require an individual to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of Personal Information which is greater than that which is needed by ILAP® to perform the Service. Typically the Personal Information which ILAP® collects arises from the scope of the Services. For example ILAP's iPermitmail™ email filter Service consists of a log of held emails from senders identifying the sender, the recipient (ILAP's customer), and the subject matter description of the contents of the email. The held emails, including the contents of held emails are collected by ILAP® in a held email server until such time as they are purged or released or forwarded by the customer.
An individual can withdraw their consent at any time, subject to the termination provisions of the applicable Service Agreement. If ILAP® is unable to perform the Service without the collection, use or disclosure of the Personal Information, ILAP will inform the Customer of the implications of withdrawing their consent.
Consent after Collection. In certain circumstances, ILAP® may seek consent after the Personal Information has been collected. ILAP considers it to be reasonable and appropriate to collect Personal Information in the course of investigating violations of its Acceptable Use Policy, without prior notice. In such circumstances ILAP will use the Personal Information to notify its customer of breaches of the Service Agreement.
Disclosure without Consent. ILAP will not disclose Personal Information to persons other than ILAP's customer, except as may be required by law. Examples of such disclosure as required by law include compliance with a subpoena or warrant, or if ILAP has knowledge as a result of its Acceptable Use Policy audit that an individual or customer in Canada is using a customer's internet access Service to access child pornography.
Collection, use, or disclosure without the knowledge or consent of the individual. In certain circumstances, such as when permitted or required by law, PIPEDA contemplates that ILAP® may collect, use, or disclose Personal Information without the knowledge or consent of the individual. These circumstances include:
Collection without knowledge or consent - the collection is clearly in the interests of the individual and consent cannot be obtained in a timely way;
Use without knowledge or consent -
Disclosure without knowledge or consent -
ILAP® limits its collection of Personal Information to the amount and type of Personal Information which it needs for its identified purposes. ILAP® will only collect Personal Information by fair and lawful means.
ILAP® will retain Personal Information only as long as is necessary for the fulfillment of those identified purposes for which it was collected. Where Personal Information is no longer required to fulfill identified purposes, it will be destroyed, erased, or made anonymous.
ILAP® will use its best efforts to ensure that Personal Information under its control is accurate, complete, and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is used. The extent to which ILAP® will ensure that such Personal Information will be accurate, complete and up-to-date will be dependant upon the use such Personal Information will be put to, taking into account the interests of the individual.
ILAP® will use safeguards designed to protect Personal Information under its control against loss or theft, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification, regardless of the format in which the Personal Information is held. For example, ILAP®:
Upon request, we will inform an individual whether or not ILAP has Personal Information regarding such individual under its control, as well as its use and disclosure of same. We will respond to an individual's written request within a reasonable period of time (generally within 30 calendar days of receipt of such request). We will assist any individual who needs assistance in completing such request subject to the individual providing sufficient information to permit us to provide an account of the existence, use, and disclosure of Personal Information under our control.
While ILAP®'s response will typically be provided at no cost to the individual, ILAP® reserves the right, depending on the nature of the request and the Personal Information involved, to charge an individual for its costs to process each such request. If it does so, such costs must be paid to ILAP® by the individual in advance of it beginning to process such request.
In providing an account of those third parties to which or to whom ILAP® may have disclosed Personal Information, ILAP will attempt to be as reasonably specific as possible in the circumstances. However, where it is not reasonably practicable to provide a specific list of those third parties to whom it disclosed Personal Information, ILAP® will provide a list of those third parties to whom it may have disclosed such Personal Information.
If it is demonstrated to us that the Personal Information under its control is inaccurate or incomplete, ILAP® will amend the Personal Information as required to the extent more accurate Personal Information is provided to it. If the challenge is not resolved to the satisfaction of the individual, it will document and record the substance of the unresolved challenge.
ILAP® may refuse a request or a challenge or not be able to provide access to the Personal Information under its control. These exceptions will be limited to those permitted or required by law. Where permitted, the reasons for such refusal will be provided to the individual upon request. For example, such reasons may include that the information:
