distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. This
information can include an individual's opinions or beliefs, as well as
facts about or related to, the individual. Exceptions: business contact
information and certain publicly available information, such as names,
addresses and telephone numbers as published in telephone directories,
are not considered personal information.
Where an individual uses his or her home contact information as
business contact information as well, we consider that this contact
information provided is business contact information and is not
therefore subject to protection as personal information.

achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. We also take measures to
ensure the integrity of this information is maintained and to prevent
it being lost or destroyed.
