NYRC understands that the “breach of security safeguards” is defined in PIPEDA as: the loss of, unauthorized access to or unauthorized disclosure of personal information resulting from a breach of an organization’s security safeguards that are referred to in PIPEDA, or from a failure to establish those safeguards. NYRC ensures it meets PIPEDA requirements to report and notify of breaches of real risk of significant harm, and keeps records of all breaches. NYRC reports any breach involving personal information under its control if it is reasonable in the circumstances to believe that the breach creates a “real risk of significant harm”. Significant harm includes bodily harm, humiliation, damage to reputation or relationships, loss of employment, business or professional opportunities, financial loss, identity theft, negative effects on the credit record and damage to or loss of property. Factors that are relevant to determining whether a breach of security safeguards creates a real risk of significant harm include the sensitivity of the personal information involved in the breach of security safeguards and the probability the personal information has been/is/will be misused.
The real risk of significant harm is determined by NYRC based on an assessment of the sensitivity of the personal information involved in the breach and the probability the personal information has been/is/will be misused. NYRC pursuant to PIPEDA keeps records of all breaches of personal information under its control – whether there is a real risk of significant harm or not. NYRC’s records contain any information that enables the OPC to verify compliance, for every breach and with breach reporting and notification requirements in PIPEDA. This includes:
If NYRC, unless otherwise prohibited by law, determines that a breach poses a real risk of significant harm to an individual, it will through NYRC’s privacy officer notify the individual(s) concerned. The notification will be conspicuous and be given directly to the individual, except in certain circumstances described in the regulations where indirect notification is permitted. The notification will contain enough information to allow the individual(s) to understand the significance of the breach of security safeguards to them, and NYRC will take any steps, if any are possible, to reduce the risk of harm that could result from the breach or mitigate the bar. The notification will not be overly legalistic, and will be easily understandable.The notification by NYRC will contain the following information specified in PIPEDA:
NYRC has developed a framework for assessing the real risk of significant harm, and ensures that all breaches are addressed consistently. Notification of individuals by NYRC will be given as soon as feasible after it has determined a breach involving a real risk of significant harm has occurred.
You have the right to withdraw consent at any time to the use or dissemination of your private information, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. If you wish to withdraw consent at any time you must contact our privacy officer, being the individual accountable for the organization’s compliance with this policy, at 416-497-4477.
