Maplewave protects the privacy of personal information that it collects, uses and discloses. Our privacy commitment is based on the ten principles of the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information. In this commitment, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual but does not include business contact information.
Maplewave often acts as a repository for information of its corporate customers. For personal information that we hold as a service provider to our customer will be exclusively governed by the privacy policies of that customer. This policy only governs personal information collected by Maplewave for Maplewave’s own use.
Maplewave is responsible for personal information under its control. As part of this accountability, Maplewave has designated its Privacy Administrator to be responsible for Maplewave’s compliance with this policy and applicable legislation. Any inquiry or complaint related to the Maplewave’s privacy practices may be directed to our Privacy Administrator, whose contact details are below:

At the time that any personal information is collected, Maplewave will inform the individual concerned of the purposes for which the information is being collected, unless such purposes are reasonably obvious to the individual concerned. Depending upon the circumstances of the collection, this information may be provided orally or in writing.
Maplewave will seek the consent of the individual concerned for any use or disclosure of personal information. Maplewave will not use personal information for secondary or marketing purposes without explicit consent. There are extraordinary circumstances where, under law, we can dispense with the usual requirements for consent.
Maplewave will not collect any personal information that is not reasonably necessary for the legitimate purposes that we have identified and for which consent has been obtained. Maplewave will only use, disclose or retain personal information for the legitimate purposes identified to the individual and for which consent has been obtained. Personal information shall be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes, except where a longer retention period is required by law.
Maplewave protects all personal information in its custody with safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.
Individuals may request to have access to their personal information by making a request in writing to the privacy officer. If your personal information is inaccurate, please let us know and we will update our records if appropriate.
