Integrity Canada Inc. - Privacy Statement

Integrity Canada Inc. respects the privacy of individuals in all aspects of our business operations. We have a longstanding commitment to protecting the personal information of job seekers when providing services to our clients. Your personal information is only collected, used and disclosed by Integrity Canada Inc. in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Why Do We Collect Personal Information?

As a job seeker using Integrity Canada Inc.'s services, you are asked to provide certain pieces of information in order for us to provide you with the best possible service. In addition to your contact details, your resumé, and a description of the type of work you are looking for, your file may include the following:

Our interview notes
Information obtained through reference and background check
Educational records
Reference letters
Skill testing results

We use your information to:

Understand your qualifications, needs and preferences
Find the “best fit” job opportunities for you
Fulfill our client's requests for information about job candidates
Provide you with appropriate training or career transition services
Skill testing results
Assess and develop our business and operations to better service job seekers and our clients
For other similar or related purposes that are reasonably necessary for the proper management of Integrity Canada Inc.’s business

Integrity Canada Inc. never collects more personal information than is needed to fulfill these purposes, unless requested by the client and consented to by the job seeker

When Do We Disclose Personal Information And To Whom?

Your personal information is never traded, sold or leased by us to any external companies. Your information is only disclosed for Integrity Canada Inc.’s legitimate business purposes or as required to meet legal and regulatory requirements, for example, to comply with a court order.

In the normal course of business, we disclose your personal information to our clients when we feel there is a potential for a job placement. As a job seeker, you are relying on us to share such information. We only provide your information to employers if there is a job opening that is well suited for you, and we only provide information required and requested to make an informed decision regarding a job candidate.

We may share information with our affiliates, partners, contractors or other companies (collectively “representatives”) that we use to provide full staffing services. However, we only disclose limited information as required for the function that will be performed by the representative on our behalf. Examples of companies we share your limited personal information with include:

Organizations that perform background checks including criminal, educational and credit checks as required by the client
Employee testing centers

Have You Consented?

Having read this policy and by using our services and providing us with your personal information, we imply your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as specified herein.

Wherever practical and when necessary, we also obtain your express consent for particular uses and disclosures. For example, we obtain your express consent before releasing your information to a third party who provides background checks on potential employees.

We imply your consent if we feel we are using your personal information for purposes that are obvious to you. For example, if you list the names and phone numbers of your previous employers on your resumé for reference checking purposes, we will not seek your express consent before checking these references.

How Long Is Your Information Retained?

We retain your information as long as we are offering placement services to you, or longer if required by law. For permanent placements, we retain your information for seven years after you accept a permanent employment position.

How Do We Keep Your Personal Information Secure?

We have staff procedures and policies in place to ensure that your personal information, in both paper and electronic format, are secure. For example, we require the following:

Access to electronic and paper files is limited on a need-to-know basis depending on job function
Password selection criteria and expiry make unauthorized access more difficult
Staff training on the importance of privacy and security is undertaken regularly

How Can You Access Your Personal Information And Check Its Accuracy?

Integrity Canada Inc. relies on the information provided by you, as well as third parties such as those providing references, educational institutions or those conducting background checks. If you would like access to the personal information we have on file for you, we will ask you to put your request in writing. You will be given reasonable access to your personal information to verify or correct information, provided your file is ‘active'. Every effort will be made to respond to your inquiry within 10 days.

Integrity Canada Inc. strives to maintain accurate records of your personal information, however, this cannot be achieved without your help. In this ongoing effort, we ask you to provide us with your most up to date information. Write to the address below and let us know of any personal information you have given us in the past that is incomplete, inaccurate, or no longer relevant. It will be our pleasure to make appropriate modifications.

Integrity Canada Anti-Spam Policy

In order to comply with Canada.s new Anti-Spam Law, Integrity Canada has developed an Anti-Spam Policy to ensure that our candidates and clients and others who receive communications from us do not encounter spam. We only send commercial electronic messages (CEMs) from our servers in compliance with our new Anti-Spam Policy dated July 1, 2014. A CEM sent by Integrity Canada is an electronic message that encourages the receiver to engage in communication with the sender regarding recruitment activities.

What is spam?

Spam is unsolicited electronic messages, also known as .junk. email or text messages, often, but not always, sent in bulk form. An electronic message may be spam if:

  1. The message is deceptive in that there is an attempt to hide the true sender or content of the message;
  2. The recipient.s personal identity and context are irrelevant because the message is equally applicable to any other potential recipients or;
  3. The recipient has not granted explicit or implied consent for the message to be sent.

When does Integrity Canada send commercial electronic messages?

Integrity Canada only sends CEMs in the following contexts:

You have explicitly informed us that you would like to receive such messages (e.g. you have engaged in previous recruitment activities, your profile is currently in our database, you have requested assistance from Integrity Canada regarding your career, you have requested assistance from Integrity Canada to help hire staff for your company);
Integrity Canada is responding to a request for information from you;
To communicate with you regarding a recruitment initiative that has the potential to be applicable to your skills;
To provide information that you are entitled to receive about an update on search activities;
You have provided your email address to us, or have a published email address, without placing any restrictions on its use, and the content we are sending you is relevant to employment;
You have an existing relationship with a third party and they have referred us to you;
You have an existing business relationship with Integrity Canada;
You have an existing non-business relationship with Integrity Canada (e.g. you are a former Contractor or Client or previously placed permanent employee);
The Integrity Canada representative sending you the message has a personal or family relationship with you or;
You are receiving the message in order for Integrity Canada to fulfill a legal obligation or enforce a pending or existing legal right.

How does Integrity Canada protect you from receiving spam?

CEMs sent, or caused to be sent from Integrity Canada.s servers do not:

Use or contain invalid or forged headers or non-existent domain names;
Employ any technique to otherwise misrepresent or obscure the sender of the message, the point of origin or the transmission path for the message;
Contain false or misleading information in the subject line or otherwise contain false or misleading content;
Use a third party.s internet domain name, or relay from or through a third party.s equipment, without permission of the third party or;
Attempt to surprise or confuse you. Integrity Canada makes best efforts to ensure that you have either specifically asked to receive electronic messages from us, or you can reasonably expect to receive messages from us.
Integrity Canada does not knowingly do business with any company that participates in sending spam. Integrity Canada does not sell or exchange any of your information without your consent.

What if I no longer want to receive messages from Integrity Canada?

In most cases, Integrity Canada CEMs provide you with the ability to unsubscribe or opt out of receiving our CEMs. When you unsubscribe through the method provided in our CEMs, your request will be processed as soon as possible, and no later than 10 days after you send the request. There are only limited contexts in which you cannot request that Integrity Canada stop sending you messages, such as when we must communicate with you to enforce Integrity Canada.s legal rights.

In the unlikely event that you receive any messages from Integrity Canada that may be considered spam please contact us at and the matter will be investigated. All Integrity Canada staff are aware of this Anti-Spam Policy, are appropriately trained, and are required to ensure that CEMs receive prior approval from the Integrity Canada Client Relationship Manager before being sent to any of our lists. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken in the event that this procedure is not followed.
