Where required by law, Encana will obtain consent of individuals to collect, use and disclose personal information. The purpose will be identified before or when the information is collected, except where otherwise permitted by law.
Encana requires personal information to meet a variety of business-related purposes, including the following examples:
- determining eligibility for employment (or to provide services to Encana), including qualification and reference checks;
- administering and managing employment or service relationships with Encana;
- administering compensation, benefits and related perquisites;
- ensuring the safety and security of staff, external parties and assets; or facilitating professional development and performance
- meeting contractual, legal or other commitments (including payment obligations) to external parties, including landowners complying with applicable employment or legal requirements
Encana protects personal information by reasonable security safeguards which are appropriate to the sensitivity level of the information.
Encana retains personal information for the period of time necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, statutory requirements or other legal purposes. Upon request, individuals will be granted reasonable access and review of their personal information as required by applicable law.
Violations of this policy and its related practices may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment or contractual relationships.
