Pacific First Aid’s Commitment to Your Privacy
At Pacific First Aid, we are committed to providing our clients and students with exceptional service. As providing this service involves the collection, use and disclosure of some personal information about our clients and students, protecting their personal information is one of our highest priorities.
What Information We Collect
The information that we collect is limited to the mandatory fields on the Student Enrollment Contract. This information is collected under the authority of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (PIPA) and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), and is required in order to process each student’s application.
Why We Record Personal Information
- To verify identity
- To identify client and student preferences
- To deliver requested products and services
- To issue certificates following successful completion of a course
- To enroll the student into a course
- To contact our clients and students regarding course information
- To ensure a high standard of service to our clients and students
- To remind students regarding recertification
- What We Do With Collected Information
The information collected from a WorkSafeBC course is archived for the sole purpose of advising you when to take a recertification course before your certificate expires. As part of our agreement with WorkSafeBC, we are subject to audits to assess compliance. We may be asked to reveal limited information in a non-identifiable form for statistical purposes. In the case of a Red Cross course, the only information we collect is from our Student Enrollment Contract. Upon successful course completion, the relevant information of course participants is uploaded onto the Canadian Red Cross Society’s course manager software. This is not only for statistical purposes, but is also used by Red Cross to provide insurance protection and certificate tracking for course graduates.
When Information Is Destroyed
Records containing personal student information are destroyed after 4 years. The credit card information provided with the Student Enrollment Contract is destroyed upon payment of the course fees.
Your Right To View Your Personal Information
During regular office hours, you may view any and all personal information that we may have collected from you as long as it does not infringe on the rights of another.
Who To Contact
Please direct all questions or concerns regarding the collection or use of personal information to the Privacy Officer of Pacific First Aid by email at [email protected].
