Define what is considered personal information.
Personal information refers to any information that can be used to identify or contact a person. This includes your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and date of birth.
Personal information will be collected and used only if it is necessary for the purposes of providing the service or undertaking the transaction.
If you believe that your personal information has been compromised, you have the right to request that it be removed from our records.
We will take reasonable steps to comply with your request.
Establish principles for collecting and using personal information.
Human resources departments need to be able to collect and use employee data in order to administer benefits, administer payroll, and track employee performance. However, they also need to be careful not to collect too much information or to use it in ways that are not justified by the purpose for which it was collected.
Employees may want their personal data kept separate from their work data, in order to maintain their privacy. However, employers may be able to justify the collection and use of personal data if it is necessary for the purposes of an employment audit or legal proceeding.
It is important for employers to establish clear and transparent principles when collecting personal information from employees. They should make clear what data will be collected, how it will be used, and who will have access to it. Employees should also be notified of the collection and use of their personal information, so that they can make informed decisions about whether or not to provide it.
Employers should take steps to protect the privacy of personal information by limiting its use and disclosure. They should also take steps to ensure that personal information is accurate, up-to-date, and complete.
Describe how personal information will be safeguarded.
Personal information will be safeguarded in a manner that complies with applicable law. Personal information will be protected from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or destruction. Personal information will be used only for the purposes for which it was collected. Personal information will be amended or updated as necessary to reflect changes in the policy or the applicable law. Personal information will be maintained in a secure and confidential manner.
Create a process for disclosing personal information if requested.
When a user requests access to personal information, the organization must take into account whether the disclosure is required under the law. If disclosure is required, the organization must disclose the information in a way that is fair, clear and concise. The organization must also ensure that the individuals who are providing the information are notified of the request and have an opportunity to contest it.
