Shred-it Group respects the confidentiality of all information provided by its clients and pledges to comply with the legislation applicable to its sector.
The purpose of this page is to indicate the categories of information we gather and use that make it possible to identify our clients or make them identifiable (hereinafter "nominative data"), the reasons we use it and, if the information is provided to third parties, the parties it is transmitted to. This page also indicates how to contact our data privacy officer here in the event of questions or complaints, or to exercise your rights under the act respecting the protection of personal information, including consultation and possible correction of information pertaining to you.
NOMINATIVE DATA COLLECTION AND HANDLING
Shred-it primarily collects and uses nominative data in managing its client record and in activities pertaining to analysis, research and claims processing. As applicable, the following information is involved:
• Individual name and contact information (mailing address, email, telephone, etc.)
• Individual title or job and, sometimes, the signature of authorized persons
Except in the event that clients give us explicit authorization to make their nominative data public, or where such communication is required or permitted by law, Shred-it does not assign such data to other parties.
Shred-it only gathers data on its own behalf and solely where necessary, in which case it specifies the purpose of the request and intended use of the data.
The client's consent is sought prior to any collection, use or transmission of information on the client under applicable personal data protection legislation. A client is free to refuse such data collection, use or communication except in case of a legal or contractual obligation. Upon reasonable notice, clients are also subsequently free to withdraw from any later collection, use or communication of their personal information. Moreover, we undertake to inform clients in the event of changes to the terms of communication or use of their personal information.
Clients' nominative data shall not be used for other purposes without their consent.
The nominative data collected is only provided to Shred-it and certain third parties acting on our behalf as agents, suppliers or service providers if it is necessary. With respect to service providers, such communication only occurs if required by circumstance (communication of client data to our insurer, for example). Moreover, third parties that receive data may only use it pursuant to the specified purpose of said communication, and such use is subject to very stringent confidentiality provisions.
