Private sector organizations must follow a code for the protection of personal information. The code was developed by business, consumers, academics and government under the auspices of the Canadian Standards Association. It lists ten (10) principles of fair information practices which form the ground rules for the collection, use, retention, disclosure and security of personal information. These principles give individuals control over how their personal information is handled in the private sector. The ten (10) principals that business must follow are:

  1. Accountability
  2. Identifying purposes
  3. Consent
  4. Limiting collection
  5. Limiting use, disclosures and retention
  6. Accuracy
  7. Safeguards
  8. Openness
  9. Individual Access
  10. Provide Recourse

Levy’s Leathers Limited and Clarke’s Quality Cases Ltd. (collectively referred to as the company) is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring personal information confidentiality. We ensure compliance by our staff with strict standards of security and confidentiality.

The purpose of our Privacy Code is to inform you about our privacy protection practices and our reasons for collecting information. Our Privacy Code applies to all aspects of our Business including our employees, customers, suppliers and business partners.

What is personal information?

For the purposes of this policy, Personal Information is defined as information about an identifiable individual such as name, address, age, identification numbers, income, opinions, evaluations, comments, disciplinary actions, employee files, credit reports, existence of a dispute between a consumer and a merchant, intentions (for example, acquire goods or services), purchase and order history and other information specifically related to an individual and/or their family.

Personal Information does not include information that does not identify specific individuals. The Privacy Policy does not apply to publicly available information such as contact information that would appear on a business card including name, title, telephone number, fax number, email address, company name and credentials or other similar information.


Our company is responsible for all personal information under its control, including personnel information, customer information, and supplier information. We have designated an individual who is accountable for our Company’s compliance with the Privacy Legislation. Our Privacy Officer is designated on page no. 1 of this guideline.

Identifying Purposes

Our company collects, uses, obtains and discloses information about our employees, customers, suppliers and business partners for the following purposes:


  • To fulfill our agreements/commitments with our employees;
  • To enable us to communicate on a regular basis with our employees;
  • For internal purposes such as payroll matters;
  • To operate/manage and organize our business, including maintaining accounting and tax records;
  • For any other purpose for which we have been expressly or implicitly authorized;


  • To establish and verify identity;
  • To obtain credit reports;
  • To offer products and services/forwarding information about products and services by means of direct marketing either through the mail or by way of email;
  • To protect from error and fraud;
  • To investigate specific transactions or patterns of transactions in response to customer enquiries or requests;


  • To establish and verify identity;
  • To obtain credit reports;
  • To enable us to communicate on a regular basis;
  • To allow us to operate or manage our business by placing orders or requests for supplies and/or raw materials as required;

Personal information is collected by us primarily as the result of being engaged in a commercial enterprise. The information we require to carry on our business is collected at the time a new employee is hired into our company, or a new customer or supplier enters into business with our company.

We do not sell, rent or authorize access to any personal information, collected about or from our employees, customers or suppliers, to third parties.

Information collected in the context of our employer/employee, customer/supplier and supplier/customer relationship is ordinarily available to our company when reasonably required for any and all of the purposes listed above.


Our company will collect, use, retain and disclose information about our employees, customers and suppliers only with their knowledge and consent. The type of knowledge and consent required will vary according to the sensitivity of the information. Subsequent use of personal information will require further knowledge and consent of the employee, customer or supplier.

At all times, our company will take reasonable steps to ensure that an employee, customer or supplier, from whom information is being collected, understands the intended use of the information.

Limiting Collection

Collection of personal information is limited to information that is required to fulfill the purposes outlined in the Identifying Purposes section above. Any use of personal information, by our company, for any purpose other that the one identified at the time of collection requires the consent of the employee, customer of supplier, unless it is required by law.

Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention

Our company will only retain personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary. Personal information shall not be disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with the consent of the individual, customer or supplier, or when it is reasonably necessary for us to have personal information to respond to any issues arising out of our relationship that may need to be addressed at a later date. Personal information shall be retained only as is necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.

We may provide personal information to other persons only:

  • when we have an individual’s consent whether express or implied;
  • to our suppliers or agents who assist us, and whom we can reasonably trust to respect privacy; or
  • when we are required or permitted by law to do so, or when we need to disclose the information to protect the interests of our company in the context of a legal or administrative proceeding;
  • when the life, health and security of the individual is threatened;


The company will make reasonable efforts to keep personal information accurate, complete and up to date as is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. If an employee, customer or supplier finds any errors in the personal information which we have on file they must let us know and we will make the appropriate corrections. If incorrect personal information has been conveyed to any party we will undertake to make the appropriate corrections and ensure the corrected information is conveyed to the appropriate parties. Should any personal information remain in dispute, we will make a note of opinion in our records.


Personal information is protected by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information. Our company ensures that all personal documents and related information are stored in a safe and secure manner. Stored electronic information can only be accessed by authorized employees of the company.

Our suppliers and agents, as part of their contract with our company, are bound to maintain confidentially and not use personal information for any unauthorized purpose. Also, when we provide personal information in response to a legal enquiry we disclose on the information that is legally required.

Computer servers that store personal information are kept in a secure environment.

When personal information is no longer reasonably necessary, it will be destroyed, erased or made anonymous, in an appropriate manner.


Our company’s Personal Information Protection Policy is available to any employee, customer or supplier requesting it (questions to be directed to our Privacy Officer).

Individual Access and Recourse

Upon request, an employee, customer or supplier shall be informed of the existence, use or disclosure of their information and shall be given access to that information. An employee, customer or supplier shall be able to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information and have it amended as may be appropriate.

The company or companies will respond to an employee’s, customer’s or supplier’s request within thirty (30) days.

Please note we may not be able to provide personal information from our records if it contains reference to other parties, is subject to legal privilege, contains information proprietary to our company or cannot be disclosed for other legal reasons.

In the case of disagreement relating to a request for correction of information, our company, retains the right not to make any form of change or correction if we can prove that the file does not need to be changed or corrected. Our company is not required to make any change or correction if the information was communicated to our company by the employee, customer or supplier or was collected with consent.

Updating the Privacy Policy

The company reserves the right to make reasonable changes to our Privacy Policy from time to time.
