At Blazing Mountain, your privacy is important to us. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, security and accuracy of your personal information. This privacy code describes the information that Blazing Mountain collects, how we use it and to whom we may disclose it.
Blazing Mountain complies with the applicable provisions of Canadian privacy legislation, including, in particular, the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, and Alberta’s Personal Information Protection Act.
For the purposes of this privacy code, “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual. This does not include the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization when used for business communications. Information about our business clients is not covered by this privacy code.
We collect and maintain different types of personal information about our clients and the other individuals with whom we interact. This includes contact information, such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address and product and service related information.
As a general rule, Blazing Mountain collects personal information directly from you. If third parties hold information that Blazing Mountain requires, we will endeavor to ensure the information has been collected with your consent. Where permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, we may collect information about you without your knowledge or consent.
Blazing Mountain collects personal information to allow us to manage and develop our business and operations, including:
When we collect your personal information, any purposes for collecting the information will be communicated before or at the time of collection.
We use and disclose your personal information for various purposes and in many circumstances, including:
It is important to us that we collect, use or disclose your personal information where we have your consent to do so or as provided in this privacy code. Depending on the sensitivity of the personal information, your consent may be express, implied or deemed, using an opt-out mechanism. Express consent can be given orally, electronically or in writing. Implied consent is consent that can reasonably be inferred from your action or inaction. For example, when you accept our products or services, we will assume your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information for purposes related to your acceptance and use of those products or services, or for other purposes identified to you at the relevant time. Deemed consent is consent we assume if you do not exercise an opt-out mechanism offered to you.
Typically, we will seek your consent at the time that we collect the personal information. In some circumstances, your consent may be obtained after collection but prior to our use or disclosure of your personal information. If we plan to use or disclose your personal information for a purpose not previously identified, we will endeavor to advise you of that purpose before such use or disclosure.
We may collect, use or disclose your personal information without your knowledge or consent where we are permitted or required to do so by applicable law or regulatory requirements.
Consent may be withdrawn or changed, subject to legal or regulatory requirements. Where required, Blazing Mountain will advise you of any implications of withdrawing or changing consent. If you wish to withdraw consent, where consent is needed, you may contact Blazing Mountain using one of the methods listed in the “Contacting Us” section, below.
You may change or withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, by contacting the office of our Privacy Officer using the contact information set out below. In some circumstances, a change in or withdrawal of consent may limit our ability to provide products or services to you.
We assume, unless you advise us otherwise, that by receiving notification of where to find a copy of this privacy code or by continuing to deal with us, you have consented to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as explained in this privacy code.
Blazing Mountain will endeavour to safeguard personal information using methods that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.
