Types of Personal Information We Collect
Personally Identifiable Information is information about you that actually identifies you as an individual, for example, your name, mailing/street address, birth date, e-mail address, or telephone number. Curtis-Elite Security only collects personally identifiable information when you explicitly choose to provide that information to us.
By voluntarily submitting personally identifiable information through our website’s contact, survey or referral forms you are agreeing that Curtis-Elite Security may contact you at the e-mail address and/or phone number you provide for the purpose of providing you information about our products, services, and pricing.
Use of Personal Information
We are the sole owners of the information collected through this website. We only have access to/collect personally identifiable information that you voluntarily give us through our website’s forms, an e-mail, or other direct contact originating from you.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the specific reason you contacted us. We will not share your personal information with any third-party outside of our organization, other than as is necessary to directly fulfill your request, or in compliance with a legal request or court order.
Security of Personal Information
We take strong precautions to protect your personal information. When you submit personal information via our website, your information is protected both online and offline. Our website employs secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission of any information you submit to us through our online forms. You can verify this by looking for the “closed lock” icon in your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the URL of any Curtis-Elite Security website page.
While encryption helps safeguard personal information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific task (for example, to provide you with a personalized quotation or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store such information, as well as any physical documents containing such information, are kept within a highly secured and monitored environment within our Prince George, BC facility.
Sharing of Personal Information
Curtis-Elite Security will not sell, trade, rent or otherwise provide your personal information to anyone without your permission. We may share your data with verified third-party partners who provide us with specific services to properly address your needs and/or as verification as needed. These partners use this information only to provide you and us with services, and agreements are in place so they do not sell or share such information to/with any other parties. Whenever Curtis-Elite Security engages a third-party service provider to do work for us, we confirm that their privacy and security standards meet our requirements.
Retention of Personal Information
Personal information will be retained only as long as necessary and will be disposed of in a manner that is appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. We render personal information non-identifying, or destroy records containing personal information once the information is no longer needed. We use appropriate security measures when destroying personal information, including shredding of any paper records and permanently deleting electronic records.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We will not disclose your personal information without your express consent. Disclosure without consent will only occur under PIPA-exempted circumstances such as when we are required to by law, or if we reasonably believe that disclosure is necessary to protect Curtis-Elite Security’s rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.
Access to Personal Information
With satisfactory identification and proof of entitlement, you may request to access, review and – if applicable – request that we amend, correct or remove personal information about you that is in our possession. Individuals should be aware that the right to access the personal information we hold about them is not absolute; we may decline a request for access if the information requested is subject to legal privilege.
