Curv Health is PIPEDA Compliant

Curv is compliant with The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). PIPEDA applies to private-sector organizations across Canada that collect, use or disclose personal information in the course of commercial activity, including allied health care services.

What is personal information?

Under PIPEDA, personal information includes any factual or subjective information, recorded or not, about an identifiable individual. This includes information in any form, such as:

• Age, name, ID numbers, income, ethnic origin, or blood type;

• Opinions, evaluations, comments, social status, or disciplinary actions; and

• Employee files, credit records, loan records, medical records, existence of a dispute between a consumer and a merchant, intentions (for example, to acquire goods or services, or change jobs).

As a provider within Canada, you may directly apply federal privacy laws under PIPEDA, but you may also want to check the privacy laws at a provincial level. See the links to relevant privacy laws within each province below, or reach out to your relevant provincial Privacy Commissioner or college/association for further recommendations.
