Protection of Farmers Personal Information

G3 Canada Limited (referred to hereafter as ‘G3’) carefully protects farmers' personal and financial information in strict accordance with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and its own internal policies. Farmer information is collected and used only for the purpose of conducting business with the farmer. Farmers’ personal or financial information will not be disclosed to anyone other than G3’s affiliated companies, agents, third parties and other business associates authorized to know such information in order to conduct business, or as required by law.? Grain-handling agents, acting on behalf of G3, have limited access to farmer information necessary for conducting business such as completing contracts, taking deliveries and paying farmers for their grain. These handling agents sign an agreement which clearly defines the information they are provided, how they can use it and how it will be protected.

Requests for information about farmers from any other third parties are handled in strict accordance with PIPEDA and G3 policies. G3 employees are required to read and follow a privacy policy, information security policies and a corporate code of conduct. Training is provided to employees on these matters and their importance is continually reinforced.

Personal Information on the Web

G3 respects the privacy of its website users. You are able to use the G3 website anonymously, unless you choose to identify yourself by disclosing personal information such as your name, phone number, e-mail or street address. G3 does not automatically gather any personal information via our website. When you send us e-mail, G3 will use your name and the contact information supplied for the purposes of responding to the concerns raised in your message and to periodically notify you of programs and opportunities that may be of interest (you will have the option to unsubscribe from such messages). Your e-mail may be shared with staff members within G3 to help us respond to your concerns, to provide commercial information regarding G3 and its programs, and to assist in improving G3 website. Note that e-mail is not a secure form of transmission and it is recommended that no sensitive personal information be included in e-mail messages or online contact form responses that you send to G3.

If you disclose your personal information to G3 via e-mail or forms provided on this website, we have physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in place to protect it from unauthorized use or improper access.

All personal information created, held or collected by G3 is protected by PIPEDA. At all points of collection you will be asked for consent to collect your information, and you will be informed of the purpose for which it is being collected and how to exercise your right of access to that information. Your personal information will not be disclosed except in accordance with PIPEDA.
