METATRON recognizes the importance of an individual’s right to keep personal information
private. We have made a commitment to ensuring that personal information in our custody
remains secure and is not used in a manner that is inconsistent with this Policy and with
Canadian privacy legislation. We do this by adhering to the principles that relate to the
collection, use, retention and disclosure of your personal information. These principles are
based on Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), in
effect since January 1, 2004.
Canadian Privacy Legislation (PIPEDA)
PIPEDA governs the rights of individuals with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of
their personal information by any private sector organization that engages in commercial
activities. It states that information must be: gathered with consent of the individual to whom the
information relates; collected for a reasonable purpose; used only for the purposes for which it
was collected; disclosed only with consent of the individual to whom the information relates;
kept accurate and up-to-date; accessible for the owner’s inspection and correction; and stored
securely. We use all information collected from you to complete information requests to the
extent necessary to operate our programs, to provide the required services to you and to help in
the development of METATRON services and products. All such communications we receive
from you are also subject to the terms and conditions governing Submissions, stated elsewhere
in these Terms and Conditions.
Our Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
When METATRON collects personal information, we always disclose the purposes for which we
are collecting the information, the manner in which we plan to use the information and the
entities to whom the information will be disclosed. We may use and disclose the personal
information we collect from our customers, consumers, subscribers and other individuals to
manage our relationship with such individuals, to administer accounts, to provide business
services and to otherwise carry on our business operations.
If we choose to use personal information already in our custody for a purpose that was not
identified at the time we initially collected the information, unless the new purpose is required or
authorized by law, we will seek the consent of the affected individuals before using this
information for these new purposes.
