Tips to protect your Personal Information

ABSi does its best to protect and safeguard Personal Information and we believe there are measures you should take as well. Do not share your Personal Information such as bank and credit card account numbers or their associated pin numbers or your social insurance number with others unless you clearly understand the purpose of their request and you know with whom you are dealing. If you are asked to assign passwords to connect you to your Personal Information, you should use a combination of letters and numbers and do not use words that can be easily associated with you (example: do not use the name of a family member or pet), we also suggest you change your password regularly.

ABSi’s senior management may designate one or more individuals to be accountable for fulfillment of ABSi’s day to day collection and processing of Personal Information and may also appoint other individuals within ABSi to be responsible for compliance with this Privacy Policy, in respect of its Customers and in respect of its employees.
    2. The identity of the individual(s) designated by ABSi to oversee the compliance with this Privacy Policy are made known internally and will also be made available to our Customers upon their request.

1.3 ABSI will use contractual or other means to protect Personal Information that ABSi discloses to companies outside of ABSi’s group of companies for processing, for example, to evaluate Customers credit worthiness or to bill and collect a Customer’s account (see Principle 7 for more details). 1.4 ABSi has implemented policies and practices to give effect to this Privacy Policy. Some of these policies and practices are listed below: 1. implementing procedures to protect Personal Information; 2. implementing procedures to receive and respond to inquiries and complaints from Customers and/or employees; 3. communicating to the ABSi employees and providing them ongoing training and the proper tools required to understand and adhere to ABSi’s policies and procedures; and 4. providing public information to our Customers and our employees to explain ABSi’s policy and procedures. 2 - Identifying the Purposes for Personal Information Collection ABSi will identify the reasons for which Personal Information is Collected and/or required at or before the time such information is Collected by ABSi. 2.1 ABSi collects Personal Information for the following purposes: • to establish and maintain responsible commercial relations with our Customers and provide each Customer with continued service; • to understand your needs as our Customer and your eligibility for products and services; • to recommend particular products and services to our Customers to meet their growing needs; • to develop, enhance, market or provide products and services to our Customers; • to manage and develop ABSi’s business and operations, including personnel and employment matters; • to process billing and collection of the fees for the ABSi products and services it has purchased and/or subscribed to; • to perform credit checks and references, if deemed necessary by ABSi; and • to meet ABSi’s legal and regulatory requirements. Personal Information will not be used for any other purpose without your Consent. 2.2 As part of ABSi’s information management policies and procedures, ABSi will specify either verbally, electronically or in writing the purposes for which it collects Personal Information. Some of the reasons ABSi may need to collect Personal Information may be for the delivery of cable and/or Internet services, for the marketing and delivery of new cable and/or Internet services, for other services including products, and for such other purposes as may be required or permitted by law. The purposes will be stated in a clear and understandable manner to ensure that the Customer can reasonably understand how the Personal Information will be used or disclosed in order that the Consent made is informed and meaningful. 2.3 When ABSi wishes to use Personal Information for a purpose not previously identified to the Customer, such as the marketing of non-cable or non-Internet services, ABSi will identify the new use, in the manner set out in 2.1 above. Unless the new use of the Personal Information is required by law, the Consent of the Customer or employee is required before the Personal Information can be used for that new purpose. (See Principle 3 – Consent) 2.4 Any time ABSi asks a Customer for Personal Information, the Customer may request ABSi to explain the reason the Personal Information is being collected. 3 - Obtaining Consent Consent will be obtained from Customers and employees before or when they Collect, Use, or disclose the Personal Information, except where inappropriate. When ABSi is required to ask for Consent ABSi will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the Customers and employees understand how the Personal Information may be Used or how it may be disclosed by ABSi. 3.1 Consent is required for the collection of Personal Information and the subsequent use or disclosure of the Personal Information. In most cases, ABSi seeks Consent for the Use or disclosure of the information at the time ABSi Collects it. When ABSi wants to use Personal Information for a purpose which it has not previously identified to the Customer, ABSi may seek Consent with respect to the Use or disclosure after the Personal Information was collected, but before it is Used. 3.2 ABSi may Collect, Use, or disclose Personal Information without a Customer’s or employee’s knowledge or Consent in instances where it is deemed a legal or security reason, or for the welfare of an individual where it might make it impossible or impractical to seek Consent. For example, when Personal Information is being collected for the detection or prevention of fraud, seeking Consent may defeat the purpose of collecting the information. All of the circumstances where ABSi may Collect, Use, or disclose Personal Information without a Customer’s or employee’s knowledge or Consent are as specified and permitted by legislation. 3.3 ABSi will ensure that a Customer applying for service is informed why ABSi needs the Personal Information and how the Personal Information will be Used. To make Customer’s Consent informed and meaningful, the purposes must be clearly stated so that a Customer can reasonably understand how the Personal Information will be Used or disclosed. 3.4 ABSi may not, as a condition of providing any product and/or service, require a Customer to Consent to the Collection, Use or disclosure of Personal Information beyond that required to provide the product and/or service itself. 3.5 Consent can be either expressed or implied. The form of Consent sought by ABSi may vary, depending upon the circumstances and the type of Personal Information. In determining the form of Consent to use, ABSi takes into account the sensitivity of the information and the reasonable expectations of the Customer. ABSi generally seeks express Consent when the Personal Information is likely to be considered sensitive. Implied Consent is typically appropriate when the Personal Information is less sensitive. 3.6 A Customer may withdraw its Consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and upon providing ABSI reasonable notice. A Customer wishing to withdraw should contact ABSi at privacy@ABS-i.com. 3.7 In general, the use of products and services by a Customer, or the acceptance of employment or benefits by an employee, will constitute implied Consent required by ABSi to Collect, Use and/or disclose Personal Information for all identified purposes. 4 - Limiting the Collection of Personal Information The Collection of Personal Information by ABSi will be limited to only that information which is necessary for the purposes identified by ABSi. All Personal Information collected by ABSi will be by fair and lawful means. 4.1 ABSi will only Collect the amount and type of Personal Information needed for the specified purposes that have been documented by ABSi and identified to Customers and employees. 4.2 ABSi will not mislead or deceive Customers or employees about the purposes for which Personal Information is being collected. 5 - Limiting Use, disclosure, and retention of Personal Information No Personal Information will be used, disclosed or shared for purposes other than those for which it was Collected by ABSi unless ABSi has the Consent of the Customer or employee, or as may be required by law.

Any such disclosure is made on a confidential basis with Customers Consent. 5.4 ABSi may disclose personal information about its employees: 1. for normal personnel and benefits administration; 2. in the context of providing references regarding current or former employees in response to requests from prospective employers; or 3. where disclosure is required by law. 5.5 Only ABSi’s employees with a business need to know, or whose duties reasonably so require, are granted access to Personal Information ABSi’s Customers and employees. 6 - Accuracy of Personal Information ABSi will keep all Personal Information provided to it accurate, complete and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used. 6.1 The level to which Personal Information will be accurate, complete, and up-to-date depends on how ABSi uses the Personal Information and ABSi will take into account the interests of the Customer or employee.
