How can you access your personal information held by the Foundation?
Individuals may request a copy of their personal information held at the Foundation by submitting a written request to the Privacy Officer using the contact information in the “Contact Us” section below. Acceptable proof of identification is required before such information is given out. If you feel the information we have about you is inaccurate, you may request that it be reviewed and, if inaccurate, changed, by contacting the Privacy Officer.
The Foundation may charge a reasonable fee for providing information in response to a PIPA access request and will provide an estimate of any such fee upon receiving an access to information request. The Foundation may require a deposit for all or part of the fee. CAREERS will make the information available within 45 days or provide written notice where additional time is required to fulfil the request.
In some situations, the Foundation may not be able to provide access to certain personal information. This may be the case where, for example, disclosure would reveal personal information about another individual, the personal information is protected by solicitor/client privilege, the information was collected for the purposes of an investigation, or where disclosure of the information would reveal confidential commercial information that, if disclosed, could harm the competitive position of the Foundation. The Foundation may also be prevented by law from providing access to certain personal information. Where an access request is refused, The Foundation will notify you in writing, document the reasons for refusal, and outline further steps which are available to you.
