What is Personal Information?
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual. Personal information includes information that relates to their business or their activities and views (e.g. opinions expressed by an individual, an opinion or evaluation of an individual). Personal information is to be contrasted with business information (e.g., an individual’s business address and telephone number), which is not protected by privacy legislation.
Hurricane Performance may use a number of specialists if necessary that may, in the course of duties, have limited access to personal information. Access is restricted to any personal information that is held as much as is reasonably possible. Hurricane Performance also has assurance that appropriate privacy principles are followed.
