PRIVACY PROTECTION LEGISLATION
Two pieces of legislation further ensure the protection of your rights. As a medical treatment centre, METROMED adheres to the PERSONAL INFORMATION PROTECTION AND ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS ACT and the CANADIAN STANDARDS ASSOCIATION MODEL CODE FOR THE PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION. To ensure full accountability, our staff is fully trained in these policies and practices.
HOW METROMED HEALTHCARE CENTRE USES PERSONAL INFORMATION
METROMED HEALTHCARE CENTRE makes use of all the latest computer software security technologies to protect the information in its systems database (including back-ups). Our staff are screened and trained. No unauthorized persons can access our offices or gain unauthorized access to a particular database. When a file is closed, the personal information it contains is erased, beyond retrieval. METROMED HEALTHCARE CENTRE cannot, however, guarantee that no one will overcome our security measures to gain access to your personal data. Criminal hackers are an international problem. We do everything possible to mitigate the problem. However, our clients also share in this responsibility. If you ever have doubts about the legitimacy of METROMED HEALTHCARE CENTRE communication, please contact us immediately. Please be cautious whenever sending personal and confidential information by whatever means, especially over the Internet.
ERRORS AND OMISSIONS
To be effective and successful METROMED HEALTHCARE CENTRE requires accurate, complete and up-to-date information on every client. If you can establish that the information on file is inaccurate, incomplete or out-to-date, we will take reasonable steps to correct it.
