How Union Alarm Uses Personal Information
Identifying the Purpose of Personal Information.
Before personal information is collected, the purpose for which it is to be used must be identified to the individual. Union Alarm will not use personal information for any other purpose.
Union Alarm does not collect personal information without an individual’s consent, as provided by the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronics Documents Act (the “Act”). Union Alarm makes every reasonable effort to make sure that an individual understands how her or his personal information will be used. An individual can withdraw a consent that has been given for the use of personal information. Union Alarm will explain what the consequences are of withdrawing consent. For example, withdrawing consent to use an individual’s name and address may mean that Union Alarm cannot continue to service that customer or it’s products in the future.
Limits for Collecting, Using, Disclosing and Keeping Personal Information.
Union Alarm limits the amount and type of information collected to only the personal information that is required to accomplish the identified purpose. For example, if personal information is given to enable Union Alarm to attend a service call or provide service, and if the individual does not want Union Alarm to keep personal information for the purpose of providing warranty or additional service, the personal information will only be used for the initial call out and will then be deleted or destroyed. Union Alarm does not use personal information for any other purpose without explaining to the individual the new use and obtaining a consent as provided under the Act.
Union Alarm does not sell, share or trade any personal information with others.
Union Alarm does not disclose individual personal information to others, except if required in the course of fulfilling the purpose for which it was collected. For example, if an individual has ordered service, it may be necessary to provide a fulfillment supplier or technician with service information relating to the individual requesting service in order to process the request. Or, if an individual has given Union Alarm personal information in respect of a request for proposal, then it may be necessary, with the consent of the individual, to provide such information to Union Alarm and its associates in order to consider the RFP.
Keeping Personal Information Accurate.
Union Alarm keeps personal information as accurate, complete, current and relevant as necessary for the identified purposes. An individual may challenge the accuracy and completeness of the personal information handled by Union Alarm and have such information amended. For this purpose, please contact the Union Alarm Privacy Officer.

Access to Personal Information.
