CCPE Confidentiality Agreement

CCPE is committed to ensuring the protection of Personal Information that you provide to us. ("Personal Information" is any information about an identifiable individual.) This commitment is more than simply a legal requirement; it is an ethical and business responsibility that we take seriously. For nearly forty years now, respecting the confidentiality of individuals has been one of the cornerstones of our operating principles. Our philosophy, based on this foundation of integrity and trust, has helped us build the enduring relationship that we have today with people inside and outside of our organization.

Below is a summary of the principles which highlight our Confidentiality Agreement.

1. Identifying purposes:
CCPE will identify and inform you of the purposes for which your Personal Information is collected at or before the time it is collected. CCPE collects the Personal Information that is necessary for its business functions or services. Unless required by law, CCPE shall not use or disclose, for any new purpose, the Personal Information that has been collected without first identifying and documenting the new purpose and obtaining your consent.

2. Consent:
Your knowledge and consent are required for the collection, use or disclosure of your Personal Information.

3. Limiting Collection:
CCPE will limit the collection and use of Personal Information to that which is needed for the identified purposes or to comply with local law, and any such information will be obtained only by lawful and fair means.

4. Limiting Use, Disclosure, and Retention:

  • Limiting Use:
    CCPE uses your Personal Information only for the identified purposes for which it was collected or for a related purpose one would reasonably expect.
  • Limiting Disclosure:
    In general, CCPE does not reveal specific information about an individual's records or other Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties for their independent use without the individual's consent except in certain limited circumstances when provided by law.
  • Limiting Retention:
    Personal information shall be retained only as long as necessary to fulfil the identified purposes or in accordance with applicable laws or corporate policies.
5. Accuracy:
CCPE will strive to maintain your Personal Information accurate, complete and up-to-date. In many cases, CCPE will rely upon you to provide accurate and complete information and to advise CCPE if circumstances change over time.

6. Safeguards:
Your Personal Information shall be protected by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. CCPE will take appropriate steps to ensure that your Personal Information is protected from unauthorized access and disclosure, including limiting access to such information only to those who have a business need to know.

7. Challenging Compliance:
At CCPE, we want you to understand our commitment to privacy. For any request or complaint related to the Policy or your Personal Information, please contact us at the address above.
