CDC only collects personal information that is necessary for operating its business and for providing services to its patients, including personal information needed to:
• operate and improve our products and services;
• understand you and your preferences to enhance your experience and enjoyment using our products and services;
• refer you to a health care professional for consultation and treatment;
• respond to your comments and questions and provide customer service;
• provide and deliver products and services you request;
• send you related information, including confirmations, invoices, technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages; and
• protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity.
CDC does not disclose your personal information to any third party to enable them to market their products and services to you, unless you have provided consent.
CDC will limit the collection of your personal information to the purposes expressly set out above. In addition, CDC may use your personal information for statistical purposes, however it will be done so in a way that the aggregate data contains no references to individual patients.
Our website is used to inform our visitors about Canada Diagnostic Centres and our products and services. Should you require additional information about Canada Diagnostic Centres you may be asked to provide personal information such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number and information request. This information will be collected and distributed through our Web site and only used by internal personnel responsible for administering information requests.
Any collection, use or disclosure of your personal information that is not authorized by the applicable legislation will only be collected, used or disclosed with your express consent. You may withdraw that consent at any time simply by indicating in writing and delivering to CDC your intention to do so.
Personal information shall not be used or disclosed for any purposes other than those for which it is collected, except:
• With your consent. For example, when you agree to our sharing your information with third parties, such as physicians and other health care providers when you request a consultation.
• For the purposes of providing emergency medical treatment.
• As required by law. For example, we may be required by law to provide certain information if a court issues a subpoena or summons or where there is an investigation by a regulatory body.
Personal information shall be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes set out above, or as required by law.
You may update your personal information, contact preferences, requests to opt-out of sharing your personal information with third parties at any time by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
CDC takes all reasonable precautions to ensure that your personal information is kept safe from loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. We protect your information by:
• physical security on our premises;
• restricting access to personal information in our files in all formats and locations;
• using technological safeguards such as security software and firewalls to prevent ‘hacking’ or unauthorized computer access; and
• following comprehensive breach response procedures, if required.
With certain limited exceptions, you have a right to access your personal information at any time. You may access your personal information by contacting CDC’s Privacy Officer at email@example.com.
