The purpose of this policy is to tell you what personal information we collect about you, how we use it, whether we disclose it to anybody else, how long we keep it, how we safeguard it, and how you can request access to your personal information that we have on file. Personal information means any information about you personally, except that personal information does not include the name, business title, business address, business e-mail address, business telephone number or business facsimile number of an employee of an organization. Personal information also does not include your home address or telephone number if these are published in a publicly available telephone directory or are obtainable from 411.

While the provision of your Social Insurance Number is optional, you should be aware that most Credit Reporting Agencies use the Social Insurance Number as a unique identifier to ensure proper identification when conducting credit reviews and preparing credit reports.
How do we use and disclose your personal information?
Your personal information will only be used and disclosed by us as required to provide our services, including to determine the location of your house in order to facilitate connections and disconnections, service calls, to obtain a credit report for a monthly payment, to provide you with a reminder if your account is not in good standing, to obtain payment and to provide you with occasional updates and information regarding products and services that we at Seaside have to offer and which we think will be of interest to you.

What can you do if you want to limit how we use your personal information?
