At the Nova Scotia Nurses’ Union (NSNU), protecting your personal information is of vital importance to our organization. We are also strongly committed to providing the necessary safeguards to ensure its accuracy and security.
Our policy complies with the guidelines set out in the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). PIPEDA applies to provincially regulated organizations that collect, use and disclose personal information in the course of commercial activity. As a union, the NSNU does not participate in commercial activity and is therefore not bound by PIPEDA. The principles in PIPEDA nevertheless provide a helpful guideline for privacy protection.
