Vernon Tourism complies with the requirements of the B.C. Personal Information Protection Act (the "Act") and adheres to the principles set out in the National Standard of Canada entitled Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information.
We shall only collect, use, or disclose personal information when the individual's consent has been obtained, or when the Act allows the collection, use, or disclosure without the individual's consent, or when the Act deems the consent to have been given by the individual.
We require an individual to consent to our collection, use, or disclosure of personal information when that collection, use, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to provide a product or service.
Where required by the Act, on or before collecting personal information about an individual we shall make available to the individual, or to such other person(s) from whom the personal information is being collected, our purposes for the collection of the personal information and the contact information for the Personal Information Administrator.
We shall make a reasonable effort to ensure that personal information collected by us or on our behalf is accurate and complete for the purposes for which it is to be used. We shall protect personal information in our custody or under our control by making reasonable security arrangements to prevent unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification, or disposal or similar risks.
