As a general rule, we collect personal information directly from you. In most circumstances where the personal information that we collect about you is held by a third party, we will obtain your permission before we seek out this information (such permission may be given directly by you, or implied from your actions).
From time to time, we may utilize the services of third parties in our business and may also receive personal information collected by those third parties in the course of the performance of their services for us or otherwise. Where this is the case, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that such third parties have represented to us that they have the right to disclose your personal information to us.
Where permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements, we may collect information about you without your knowledge or consent.
Why Do We Collect Personal Information?
The personal information collected is used and disclosed for our business purposes, including being used for establishing, managing or terminating (collectively, "administering") your employment relationship with MNP Community & Sport Centre. Such uses include:

Monitoring / Video Surveillance
The work output of MNP Community & Sport Centre employees, regardless of format belongs to us, and that work output, whether it is stored electronically, on paper or in any other format, and the tools used to generate that work product, are always subject to review and monitoring by MNP Community & Sport Centre.
In the course of conducting our business, we may monitor employee activities and our property. For example, some of our facilities are equipped with surveillance cameras. Where in use, surveillance cameras are there for the protection of employees and third parties, and to protect against theft, vandalism and damage to MNP Community & Sport Centre’s goods and property. Video tapes recording images are routinely destroyed and not shared with third parties unless there is suspicion of a crime, in which case they may be turned over to the police or other appropriate government agency or authority. We may also monitor employee computer and e-mail use.
This section is not meant to suggest that all employees will in fact be monitored or their actions subject to constant surveillance. It is meant to bring to attention the fact that such monitoring may occur and may result in the collection of personal information from employees (e.g. through their use of our resources). When using MNP Community & Sport Centre equipment or resources employees should not have any expectation of privacy with respect to their use of such equipment or resources.
How Do We Use Your Personal Information?

For example, we may share your personal information with third party service providers (including our affiliates) who, for example, provide us certain accounting, human resources, information technology and/or data processing services to us from time to time so that we may operate our business. As result, your personal information may be collected, used, processed, stored or disclosed in United States. As such, your personal information may potentially be accessible to law enforcement and national security authorities of those jurisdiction.
