2.2 Obtaining your Consent
Your Consent can be express or implied (“Consent“). It can be expressed in writing, or electronically when, for example, you authorize us to check your employment, to perform a criminal background check, or to check and contact your references.
Your Consent can be implied through your action or inaction. For instance, when you file an application, we conclude that you have consented to the collection, use, and disclosure of the Personal Information it contains for the intended purposes. The same conclusion may be drawn when you use one of our products, solutions or services. Your Consent can also be given by your authorized representative, for instance, if he/she is providing Personal Information and is seeking employment from 247 on your behalf.
Your Personal Information will be viewed by 247 employees or representatives for the purposes of their work or for which it was given, as outlined in main 2.1.
In some circumstances, 247 may collect, use, or disclose Personal Information without your Consent for legal, security, or processing reasons, or when it is impossible to obtain your Consent in cases contemplated by applicable privacy legislation. Examples of such circumstances include compliance with applicable laws or court orders, the protection of the public interest, 247’s rights, fraud detection and prevention, the use of Personal Information emanating from a third party, and the collection of overdue accounts.
You can withdraw your Consent at any time, provided 247 is given reasonable notice and there are no legal or contractual requirements preventing this.
2.3 Limiting collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information
247 will not, without your Consent, collect, use, or disclose Personal Information except for the purposes identified or for a use consistent with those purposes or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable law. With your Consent, 247 may obtain Personal Information from third parties, including through criminal background checks.
247 may transfer (or otherwise make available) Personal Information to third parties who provide services on our behalf. For example, we may use service providers to process Personal Information, authorize and process payments, or host our website. Personal Information may be stored and processed outside of Canada, including the United States, by our third-party service providers. Our service providers are not authorized to use or disclose your Personal Information for any purpose other than providing the services on our behalf or as otherwise required by applicable law.

Subject to legal requirements provided by the Privacy Act or the Access to Information Act, 247 will respect your right of access to your Personal Information by informing you of its procedures and requirements for responding to your request for access. 247 will act diligently to give you access, at minimal or no cost wherever possible. In certain exceptional circumstances, 247 may not be able to give you access to your Personal Information. For example, some Personal Information banks may contain references to other persons or to 247 ‘s proprietary information, or be covered by solicitor-client privilege.
You can challenge the accuracy of your Personal Information and request corrections if you believe there are errors or omissions. You may also require in certain circumstances that an annotation be attached to your Personal Information reflecting any correction requested but not made, or that such annotation or correction be notified to certain individuals.
247 will take all reasonable steps to ensure Personal Information used on an ongoing basis is as accurate, up-to-date, and complete for the purposes in which it was collected; 247 will rely on you to inform it of any required corrections.
