What is personal information?
Personal Information is recorded information about an identifiable individual. Personal information includes such things as an individual’s name, address, date of birth, email address and phone number. When the PEI Liquor collects personal information it must identify:
- the purpose for collecting the personal information;
- the legal authority for collecting it; and
- the title, business address and business telephone number of an officer or employee of Liquor PEI who can answer questions about the collection of that information.
PEI Liquor does not collect personal information unless you voluntarily provide it for the purpose of using specific online services. However, if you choose not to provide the information required for online services, you can still access PEI Liquor services in person, by phone, fax or mail. Your decision not to participate in online services will not impair your ability to browse the website, read or download any information provided on the site.
Personal information will only be used by authorized staff to fulfill the purpose for which it was originally collected or for a use consistent with that purpose, unless you expressly consent otherwise. We do not disclose your information to other public bodies or individuals, except as authorized by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
