2. Protection of Personal Information

  1. Canadian law governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal information in a manner that recognizes individuals’ right of privacy with respect to their personal information.
  2. The federal Personal Information Protection Act (“PIPA”) sets out rules and principles for the management of personal information by commercial organizations. Tradescraft services are made available to employers and job seekers across Canada. PIPA applies to Tradescraft because it is an organization headquartered in Alberta, Canada.
  3. The type of personal information that is protected includes almost any information about an identifiable individual, such as your name, address, telephone number, age, sex, marital status and nationality. Personal information may not, however, include certain types of business or employment related information. It does not, for example, include the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization. Information contained in Resumés that you elect to post to this site may constitute personal information and would be subject to this Privacy Policy.
  4. PIPA provides certain fundamental principles which apply to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. One of the most significant, is that your personal information generally cannot be collected, used or disclosed without your consent. It also allows you to find out why your personal information is being collected, how it is being used, where it’s being stored and to whom it’s disclosed. It requires the use of appropriate safeguards to secure your personal information. It also grants you access to your personal information and provides mechanisms for ensuring compliance.
  5. Tradescraft does not collect, use or disclose your personal information without your consent except where required or allowed by law.

3. What Information Do We Collect

  1. Tradescraft limits the collection of your personal information to that which is required or  permitted by law.
