Our Commitment

Excelleris is committed to protecting personal information. We value the trust of those we deal with and recognize that maintaining this trust requires that we be transparent, diligent and accountable in managing the personal information in our care. Our privacy practices are designed to support this goal.

This Privacy Statement is an overview of our corporate policies and practices for managing personal information. The specific privacy policy for an individual Excelleris service, like my ehealth, is posted on the website for the applicable service.

Personal Information

Personal information is any information that can be used to uniquely identify a specific individual.

Accountability

Protection of personal information is a priority at Excelleris. Our Privacy Officer is accountable for compliance with privacy legislation and our policies; and everyone at Excelleris receives privacy training so that each person who handles personal information understands how to protect that information.

Privacy Practices

Excelleris’ privacy practices comply with applicable legislation and are based on the Canadian Standard Association’s Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information. Our privacy practices include the following:

  • You have the right to know how your personal information will be used. We will explain the reason for collecting your personal information and how it will be used before or when we collect it;
  • We will only collect the personal information necessary and use or disclose it only for the purposes described, with your consent, as permitted or required by law, or we have clearly identified it as optional;
  • We will keep your personal information only as long as it is necessary for the purposes it was collected for or required by law; and
  • We will inform you of the existence, uses and disclosure of your personal information and give you access to that information if you request it. If you believe any personal information is inaccurate or incomplete we will assist you with having corrections made.

Security Safeguards

Excelleris protects the personal information in our custody using strict security practices to prevent loss, unauthorized access, misuse or modification. Access to your personal information is restricted to those personnel who require the information in order to perform their duties.

Choice & Consent
