We follow the rules. Office Control is compliant with all relevant legislation and standards for privacy and anti-spam. We take privacy rules and regulations seriously, and we make necessary adjustments every time a law is updated.

Privacy Act

We are compliant with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, also known as PIPEDA. PIPEDA applies to private-sector organizations across Canada that collect, use or disclose personal information in the course of a commercial activity. Businesses must follow the 10 fair information principles to protect personal information, which are listed in Schedule 1 of PIPEDA.

Our privacy policy specifically addresses all items required for compliance. For example, we will use your personal information to verify your identity, as required by PIPEDA, when you contact us with a request to make sure it is really you.

Anti-Spam Legislation

We are compliant with the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL) and the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act. CASL protects consumers and businesses from the misuse of digital technology, including spam and other electronic threats. The U.S. CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to stop receiving emails from a company, and bestows penalties for violations. Our company is fully compliant with all requirements, including unsubscribe management, proper labeling of all messages, and conformation from administrators before they can post an announcement.

We give residents the control to unsubscribe from Office Control emails at any time. They can also customize their preferences so they can opt-out of certain notices without fully unsubscribing.
